Open Heavens TEENS Devotional Review for July 29th 2020

Wednesday, 29th Of July, 2020


BIBLE READING:2Cor.13.5 – Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?–unless indeed you fail to meet the test!


If you find it difficult to hear the voice of God, you may need to look inward and carry out a seIf-examination.

A Self examination is an evaluation of our walk with the Lord.
This means allowing His word to purge you.

Another version puts it this way
2 Corinthians 13:5 Now your souls will be strengthened and healed if you HOLD STEADFAST to your faith. Haven’t you already experienced Jesus Christ himself living in you? *If not, you are *deficient* .

To be deficient means a lack, the only way to not be deficient in fellowship with God is constantly holding on to His word in your hearts and also your mouth.


  1. When we walk with the Lord
    In the light of His Word,
    What a glory He sheds on our way,
    While we do His good will,
    He abides with us still,
    And with all who will trust and obey.

Trust and obey,
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

  1. Not a shadow can rise,
    Not a cloud in the skies,
    But His smile quickly drives it away,
    Not a doubt or a fear,
    Not a sigh or a tear,
    Can abide while we trust and obey.
  2. Not a burden we bear,
    Not a sorrow we share,
    But our toil He doth richly repay,
    Not a grief nor a loss,
    Not a frown nor a cross,
    But is blest if we trust and obey.
  3. But we never can prove
    The delights of His love,
    Until all on the altar we lay,
    For the favour He shows,
    And the joy He bestows,
    Are for them who will trust and obey.
  4. Then in fellowship sweet
    We will sit at His feet,
    Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
    What He says we will do,
    Where He sends, we will go,
    Never fear, only trust and obey.

Grace and Peace to you as you grow in Knowing the Lord Jesus.
Today’s Open Heavens Review:

While Waiting
1 Samuel 13:7-14

The Waiting season is a season before an action.
You can wait for a promise/vision from the Lord. The waiting process is usually characterized by Faith and Patience.

Habakkuk 2:3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.

In today’s text we see how Saul hurried to sacrifice at the expense of the instruction to wait and it cost him the throne.

Waiting may not be according to human timing or expectation
But it will be wise to wait on the Lord’s time.

This is because God wants us to remain separated/consecrated to His way that’s the only way He gets the Glory (1 Peter 2:5&9)

Also while waiting keep praying on the promise and give thanks for the answer that your joy may be full. (John 15:16)

Open Heavens Teens Review for July 27th 2020

Good morning with God’s Love.
Welcome to another Open Heavens teens devotional Review, (27th July 2020)

Today we are looking at A VERY PRESENT HELP
Psalm.27.5 – For he will conceal me there when troubles come; he will hide me in his sanctuary. He will place me out of reach on a high rock.(The Rock is Jesus)

People today want to feel safe at work, school, home and in the midst of these times, there’s an information that is important for you to know.

Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge, an very present help in time of trouble.

Ps.27.1 – The LORD is my light and my salvation–so why should I be afraid? The LORD protects me from danger–so why should I tremble?

Ps.27.2 – When evil people come to destroy me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.

Ps.27.3 – Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will know no fear. Even if they attack me, I remain confident.

As belivers, God being our refuge assures of security any day anytime. You don’t have to be afraid of anything

“the Lord is my shepherd , I shall not want. (Psalm 23)

Are you the Lord’s sheep?
This security was promised to anyone who believes on the Lord Jesus, that person will be saved and given this testimony of the Righteous
“IT SHALL BE WELL” Isaiah 3:10

Belive and trust God for you life. For God is the strength of my Life, I will not be afraid of what man can do. (Psalm 27:1-2)

Open Heavens TEENS Devotional Review, 26th July 2020
The Good Fight
2 Timothy 4:7-8

The Christian Life is a race that requires endurance to finish.

This race track is full of distractions and persecutions that want to decietfully push many to make wrong stops.
Paul the Apostle had this testimony,
2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

This means we too can have this report!

Looking away from the distractions and persecution unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and is now set above.(Hebrews 12:2)

2:3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ
Sometimes,it may look like impossible but “His grace is sufficient in ur weakness!
So likewise, run with patience this race set before us.

Keep looking to Jesus, obeying what He says!
If we suffer(endure) with Him, we will triumph and reign with Him 2 Timothy 2:12

And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God…
Luke 9:62

Bible Reading: Luke 9:59-62.

Luke.9.59 – And He said to another, Become My disciple, side with My party, and accompany Me! But he replied, Lord, permit me first to go and bury (await the death of) my father.

Luke.9.60 – But Jesus said to him, Allow the dead to bury their own dead; but as for you, go and publish abroad throughout all regions the kingdom of God.

Luke.9.61 – Another also said, I will follow You, Lord, and become Your disciple and side with Your party; but let me first say good-bye to those at my home.

Luke.9.62 – Jesus said to him, No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back [to the things behind] is fit for the kingdom of God.

1 Peter 5:8 says:
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”

“Just as God is looking for people to set aflame for His kingdom, Satan is looking for people to devour (John 10:10). The fact that he is seeking, however shows that HE CANNOT DEVOUR EVERYTHING.”
He shows you all the glitters of the world and uses them as bait. Don’t ever let those things entice you.

The moment you get to the stage where the pleasures of this world do not matter to you anymore, he knows he has lost you.
This is as a result of knowing (continuously) the revelation of God’s Love and promises

The Passion Translation 1 John 2:15-17 A Warning Not to Love the World Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. For all that the world can offer us—the gratification of our flesh, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance—none of these things come from the Father but from the world. This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever.(1 John 2:15-17)

According to Peter, God had given us in Christ Jesus, all things that we need to live well despite the “promises/bait” of the Devil.

2Pet.1.3-4 – For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and virtue(excellence).

  • By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature. “I pray for you just as Jesus prayed for Peter: the devil will not get you in the mighty name of Jesus.”

2 Kings 3:11 But Jehoshaphat, the king of Judah, asked, “Isn’t there a prophet of the Lord with us? If so, we can find out what to do!” “Elisha is here,” one of the king of Israel’s officers replied. Then he added, “He was Elijah’s assistant.”

This text tells us of the relationship between a
to  serve His “Master” Elijah

This act can be compared to volunteering today.

Volunteering is simply serving with your skills in a particular place without monetary payment

It is usually done at holidays or free times.

A great advantage is that it exposes you to what you will like to do later in life, like maybe a catering school, the airport etc

Volunteering is a way of gaining great experience.
Be willing to serve and develop yourself, becoming a person of value and connects you to people of value.

Don’t be idle.

Wordly Trends
Matthew 5:14-16

Trends are shifts in a way of doing something.
These trends are popular among the fashion industry(way of dressing) , Music and others.

These trends are most times caused by an ungoldy inspiration.
Copying these trends will not be appropriate because BELIEVERS are meant to INFLUENCE their environment as the SALT of The Earth and PERFUME OF CHRIST! (It shouldn’t be the reverse_2Corinthians 2:14)

It will be proper for us
to understand that despite the trends, God himself never changes yet never outdated. (Malachi 3:6_Hebrews 13:8)
Also as Believers we can remain ever relevant and godly.

So listen,
“ Matthew 5:14-16 “Your lives light up the world. Let others see your light from a distance, for how can you hide a city that stands on a hilltop? And who would light a lamp and then hide it in an obscure place? Instead, it’s placed where everyone in the house can benefit from its light. So don’t hide your light! Let it shine brightly before others, so that the commendable things you do will shine as light upon them, and then they will give their praise to your Father in heaven.”

Anywhere you are is an opportunity to shine the light and love of Christ,
Regardless of every trend that may come.

Rom.12.1 – Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. [NIV]

Good morning with God’s Love
Grace and peace and welcome to today’s  review for 16th July 2020 (open heavens Teens Devotional)

Matthew 18:22-35

Many to are unconsciously bringing torment to themselves by the character we sometimes display.

Our Bible text says, The Master had compassion on the Servant and yet the servant didn’t forgive his fellow servant.

*Ephesians  4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.*

As Believers, When you know deeply that God has forgiving you your sins, YOU SHOULD LET GO and forgive others … it may be difficult but very POSSIBLE because the love of God is in abundance in you heart.(Romans 5:5) You have to learn to lean on the Holy Spirit.
Tell God and tell yourself you want to walk in Love.
(1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Romans 13:8-9)
Don’t keep your self trapped in such a torment of unforgivness

Keep no record of Evil or offences

Think no evil towards the next fellow.

Grace and peace and welcome to a Review for July 6th 2020.

We are Going Higher: PRAYER
Luke 18:1-7

1 Thessalonians 5:17
Pray without Ceasing.

Jesus said Men(Male/Female)ought always to engage in prayer.

As Christ showed us by His Lifestlye, Prayer is the culture of the Believer’s Life.

Prayer is what causes shifts in life and a nation at large.
The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working]. James 5:16b

In our bible text we saw that the Woman cried out to the Judge, knowing He had capacity to act. So also jesus said,
Ask and it will be given.(Matthew 7:7)

He said Up till now, you have ASKED nothing in my name, but Ask that your joy be full.(John 15:16)
Put God first by praying and indeed pray that His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Choose to stay longer in prayer

1 Corinthians 9:25-27

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and BRING FORTH FRUIT, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

In the beginning, God spoke to man and said,
… let them have dominion over … the earth…_Be fruitful…
(Genesis 1:26&28)

Also from the text we see that Jesus called us as Believers to be successful in the Christian Journey.

But we need to realise since we are victors, we also need a strategy to ensure the victory is seen in the Earth. So a Man called Paul wrote,

1 Corinthians 9:26-27 For that reason, I don’t run just for exercise or box like one throwing aimless punches, but I train like a champion athlete. I subdue my body and get it under my control,… so that after preaching the good news to others I myself won’t be disqualified.

You have to be disciplined to be successful in the God given task ahead of you
Like Jesus would, don’t just do things anyhow but trust and obey the Holy Spirit and make Decisions that will bring you closer to the goal in your heart.

Key Point: Allow the Holy Spirit guides you to make plans for whatever you want to achieve and stick with it.
