OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…

THEME : SINGLED OUT
many leper were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none
of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian. Luke 4:27
Read: Luke 4:25-27 (KJV)
But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of
Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when
great famine was throughout all the land;
26 But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.
27 And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.
God opens treasures to you but blinds your enemies from seeing them,
the experience is simply wonderful. However, when your tomorrow becomes
permanently settled for good, it is even more wonderful. This is what
the Lord sent His word to do in Isaiah 3:10:
“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.”
if you are genuinely born again and in right standing before God, no
matter what the devil does, no matter how hard he fights against you,
and no matter the number of forces that gather together to stand in your
way, you will prevail at the end. Sometimes, God keeps quite and allows
your enemies to believe that they have the upper-hand against you; but
just when they think it is all over for you, the Lord will suddenly
arise on your behalf and bring them under your feet. Also, never think
that your labours are in vain. They are not! God keeps a record of them.
that you did not enter your harvest today does not mean your harvest is
lost forever. You shall not lose your harvest! There can only be some
delay, some temporary setback, but you will enter your harvest. Have you
been separated from your harvest for so long? This season, the Lord
will arise for you, scatter all the impediments on your way and give you
a great harvest, in Jesus’ Name.
Beloved, it shall be well
with you. Your tomorrow shall be alright. Your tomorrow is secured in
God and not in your nation’s economy.
When God prospers you to
the level where you can say, “By the grace of God, I now have enough to
take care of me and my family for the rest of our lives”, then that can
be described as being even more wonderful. Beyond this, the experience
of the widow of Zarephath in 1st Kings 17:8-16 can be described as most
wonderful because, of all the households in a country suffering a
nationwide famine, this widow’s household was the only one singled out
for favour. The miracle of divine provision was limited to her
particular household alone. When you are singled out this way, the
negative things that affect others will not affect you. Also, the good
things that other cannot get, no matter how hard they try, will be yours
with little or no effort. This year, the Lord will single you out for
protection against any form of famine, disease or pestilence. The Lord
will single you out for an uncommon blessing that will leave your
enemies in the dark in Jesus’ Name.
Pray that the youths of your nation will get to know God and serve Him with all that they have.

HYMN 8: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS
1. “Great is Thy faithfulness,”
O God my Father,
There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
Thou changest not,
Thy compassions, they fail not
As Thou hast been
Thou forever wilt be.
“Great is Thy faithfulness!”
“Great is Thy faithfulness!”
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
All I have needed
Thy hand hath provided,
“Great is Thy faithfulness,”
Lord, unto me!
2. Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
