Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:21.
Read: 2 Samuel 6:9-12
Are you doubting whether God can intervene in your life? Irrespective of your doubts, because our God reigns, laughter will come into your family this season in Jesus name. Our God cannot co-reign with poverty because He is the Jehovah El-Shaddai- the All Sufficient God, the inexhaustible God (Genesis 17:1). In Samuel 6:9-12, the Ark of the Covenant was brought into the house of Obededom and poverty and lack immediately gave way. He became so prosperous that he was the talk of the town just within three months! Is Jesus in your life? If He is, l command lack and poverty to disappear from your life today!
Several ramifications can be deduced from the fact our God reigns. Since our God now reigns, the rule of sickness, demons, sorrow, darkness, failure, barrenness, and poverty has been terminated in your life. An African proverb says that when the cat travelled, the house became the abode of mice, but when the cat returns, what happens? The mice will disappear or be killed. Our God reigns, means the cat has returned so every sorrow, sickness, disgrace, disappointment, etc. must scatter now. Also, since no two captains can man the same ship, when God steps in, everything else contending with God will have to step out. The moment the Lord stepped into Peter’s boat, failure jumped out but it did not stop there. Jesus became the controller and owner of the boat. When He comes into your house, He will not just be a guest or tenant but the landlord. When you let Him into your home, He will not just be a friend of the bridegroom but the One in charge of that home and barrenness and other anti-family elements will give way. When you let Him into your business, He will become the MD/CEO and poverty will leave you alone. The devil can only play tricks in areas Jesus is not reigning. Is He reigning in every area of your life?
Master Jesus, reign in every area of my life.
