OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL

DATE: WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 21 2022

THEME: BECAUSE YE ASK NOT

MEMORISE:

For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
Matthew 7:8

READ:
Matthew 7:7-11

7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:

8 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

9 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?

10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?

11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

MESSAGE:

Many at times, Christians give themselves headache over what should not be a problem at all. You have a Father in heaven who is the Almighty and owns the entire world and all that is in it, yet you bother your brain so much about your needs when you can easily ask Him and He will give you whatever you need. Many problems have lingered for too long because instead of praying, the fellow involved is worrying. The latter part of James 5:16 says:

…The effectual fervent prayers for a righteous man availeth much.

It did not say the effectual fervent worries will avail much. In fact, Matthew 6:27, Jesus Christ said expressly that worrying will do absolutely nothing for you.

Don’t burden yourself with what you cannot carry; ask God and He will carry your troubles for you. He has put no limit to how much you can ask of Him. In John 16:24, He said you should ask so your joy may be full. Inversely, this also means that you cannot be filled with joy until you have asked Him.

Many people get angry with God unnecessarily. They would have gone to every human being they can reach and gotten frustrated, then turn to God and ask, “Why me?” Many Christians burden themselves so much because they don’t know how much God loves them and how willing He is to give them whatever they ask for. He loved you so much that He sacrificed His son for your sake; what is it that you can ask Him that will be greater than that? Why would He hold back anything from you when He did not withhold His only begotten Son from you?

He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Romans 8:32

He has given you a blank cheque. Instead of worrying and jumping around looking around for solutions to your problems, go on your knees and write in the blank cheque which is found in Matthew 7:7-8.

ACTION POINT:

Ask God for whatever you want.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Ezekiel 44-47

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

HYMN 21
STANDING ON THE PROMISES OF GOD

1. Standing on the promises of Christ my King,
Through eternal ages let His praises ring,
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

Chorus:

Standing, Standing,
Standing on the promises of God my Saviour;
Standing, Standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2. Standing on the promises that cannot fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,
By the living Word of God I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

[Chorus]

3. Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

[Chorus]

4. Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.

[Chorus].
