OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

OPEN HEAVEN DEVOTIONAL

 

DATE: MONDAY JUNE 20TH 2022

 

THEME: FATHER, WHERE ARE YOU? II.

 

MEMORISE The just man walketh in his integrity: his children are blessed after him. Proverbs 20:7 

 

READ: Luke 11:21 -22

21 When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

 

22 But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

 

MESSAGE

The responsibility of a father is great. He is the head of the home. As the husband and father, God has made him responsible for the wellbeing of his home. Therefore, if a man does not say anything, nothing will stand and everything will fall. This is why fathers cannot afford to be spiritual babies. There are matters that can be solved by a single decree from a father, but if the man is a baby Christian, those issues would continue. If the father is not constantly feeding his children and household with the word of God, how would he expect them to grow up to know the Lord? The effect of a father’s influence upon his children far outweighs that of the mother. Luke 11:21 says:

 

When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace.

 

This scripture shows us how important it is for the man – head of the home, to be strong spiritually. God forbid that a man is not spiritually strong when the devil comes to attack the home.

 

Unfortunately, many children reap the fruits of their father’s spiritual immaturity. When parents tell lies in front of their children, they have already shown them how to do the same. When a man does not show love to his wife, his children will see women as objects to be used and they would have learned such wrong lesson from him. A responsible father must reflect the image of God to his wife and children. The Bible already says that the man reflects the glory of God while the woman reflects the glory of the man (1 Corinthians 11:7). If there is no glory upon the life of the man as a result of spiritual immaturity, what glory will the woman and the children reflect? May God cause fathers to rise to spiritual maturity, in Jesus’ name.

 

PRAYER POINT

Father, show me areas of my life where I need to grow, so that I can reflect your glory over my family, in Jesus name.

 

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 52-54

 

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE 

 

HYMN 10: JESUS MY LORD MY GOD MY ALL

1 Jesus, my Lord, my God, my all,

hear me, blest Savior, when I call;

hear me, and from thy dwelling place

pour down the riches of thy grace.

 

Refrain:

Jesus, my Lord, I thee adore;

O make me love thee more and more.

 

2 Jesus, too late I thee have sought;

how can I love thee as I ought?

And how extol thy matchless fame,

the glorious beauty of thy name? 

 

3 Jesus, what didst thou find in me

that thou hast dealt so lovingly?

How great the joy that thou hast brought,

so far exceeding hope or thought! 

 

4 Jesus, of thee shall be my song;

to thee my heart and soul belong;

all that I have or am is thine,

and thou, blest Savior, thou art mine.

Welcome! Velkommen!

Lord Jesus, 

I know that I am a sinner ,

I confess my sins before you today 

I believe that you died on the cross and rose up on the third day

Dear Jesus, I need your forgiveness right now 

I am not perfect and I cannot do it on my own 

Please dear Jesus come into my heart 

I surrender my life to you 

Help me to live for you as from today

Please forgive me, change my life & show me how to know You in Jesus precious name . Amen

PASTOR E.A..ADEBOYE WORD 19.06.2022
