CHANGE Wednesday 1 August

Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: And as a vesture shalt fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail. Hebrews 1:12
Read: Acts 19:1-7
The only constant thing in life is change. God’s covenant moved from the Old Testament to the New. That was a profound change that shaped the world. When Jesus came, the Old Testament was in force. He introduced the New Testament during his ministry on earth, giving men a glimpse of the change to come and reorienting their understanding. After His death, burial and resurrection, the New Testament in His blood was established. Those who fail to go with change end up blaming themselves. They will be cut off from so many benefits. For instance, during the days of the early church, when Paul travelled to Ephesus, he met some disciples who were baptisedby John the Baptist. Based on what they knew, they were still expecting the Messiah who John had come to usher in. unknown to these, the Mess…


PRESUMPTUOUS? Monday 30 July

Memorise: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; Colossians 3:23
Read: Deuteronomy 1:42-44
God promised in Proverbs 23:18 that the expectations of the righteous shall be met, but many expectations are not granted today and people are wondering why. Why do expectations of believers fail? Expectations based on presumption will most likely fail. In other words, what you base your expectations on will determine whether it will be granted or not.

Deuteronomy 1:42-44 documents an account by Moses, where he warned the Israelites not to go and fight the Amorites because God was not with them. They paid deaf ears to his warning and went into the battle and got the disgrace of their lives. God has a strategy for every battle. There are some battles He will want …

LUST OR LOVE? Thursday 26 July

Open Heavens Devotional by Pastor E.A. Adeboye
Memorise: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Read: Romans 5:7-8
A discuss on love would normally focus on a minimum of two people – the lover and the loved. The lover is the subject while the loved is the object. In a true love situation, the subject seeks the welfare of the loved, whether the object deserves it or not. Romans 5:7-8 says Jesus Christ died for us at a point no one else could have. While we were separated from Him as sinners with enmity between us, He died for us. How many of you can die for your enemies? If anything, most people would want their enemies dead this minute. What love can be greater than that of Jesus Christ? Most times, we misunderstand the word “love”. A man telling a lady, “I love you”, might really mean “I am lusting after you”. This is a counterfeit of God’s love. Lust is selfish, self-centered and seeks to exploit the object. Lust is di…
