Galatians 5:16-22

1 Corinthians 9:27 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.

Many people think man’s greatest enemy is the devil,but that’s not true. Man’s greatest enemy is self.

What’s Self?
Self refers to the natural sinful human nature that was passed down from Adam, who rebelled against God’s Government.

It’s the nature that drives every man to sin.
Self contradicts the ways of the Holy spirit.
The Passion Translation Galatians 5:17-18 For your self – life craves the things that offend the Holy Spirit and hinder him from living free within you! And the Holy Spirit’s intense cravings hinder your old self – life from dominating you! So then, the two incompatible and conflicting forces within you are your self – life of the flesh and the new creation life of the Spirit. But when you are brought into the full freedom of the Spirit of grace, you will no longer be living under the domination of the law, but soaring above it!

When a man gives his life to Christ, he has the grace of God to live above sin and self.

This only happens when you submit under the government of the Holy Spirit in your heart.
Romans 8:1 the law of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus frees us from the law of sin and death.
Submit to the desire of the Holy Spirit and say no to sin. ( Titus 2:11-14)

Grace and peace and welcome to the open Heavens Devotional Review, for August 30th 2020.


Text: James 1:12-15
James 1:12 If your faith remains strong, even while surrounded by life’s difficulties, you will continue to experience the untold blessings of God! True happiness comes as you pass the test with faith, and receive the victorious crown of life promised to every lover of God!

James 1:13-15 When you are tempted don’t ever say, “God is tempting me,” for God is incapable of being tempted by evil and he is never the source of temptation. Instead it is each person’s own desires and thoughts that drag them into evil and lure them away into darkness. Evil desires give birth to evil actions. And when sin is fully mature it can murder you! (The Passion Translation)

Temptations are mere arousals to sin.
It’s the situation where you are drawn by a lust.(James 1:3)

Temptations are don’t just happen, but it is a situation where you are tested in an area of lust.

How do I overcome lust?
*** Submit to the discipline of the spirit of God (He will help you.)
[Romans 6:13-14]

*** Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. (But on the Love of God) 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.( 1 John 2:15-16)

Don’t offer your body to sin but set your consciousness to righteousness

*** Don’t give room for the opportunity. Be principled and flee every appearance of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22)

Think On These Things Thursday

#Think on these things series 2.

Matthew 6:26 “Look at all the birds—do you think they worry about their existence? They don’t plant or reap or store up food, yet your heavenly Father provides them each with food. Aren’t you much more valuable to your Father than they? The Passion Translation


The life of the believer was never one to be lived in worry.
Many times, the devil brings situations to us that confound your understanding. He still goes to come and go counsel, suggesting  ways you can overcome the challenge.

Many times our undoing is in following his counsel and /or walking by natural sight.

At times this counsel, may look harmless but alas, If we choose to follow His pattern we are prone to failure… for there’s a way that seems right to men but leads to death.( Proverbs 14:30)

Jesus told his disciples, Don’t allow worry room in your heart.

Maintain a heart posture of prayer and thanksgiving that embraces the peace of God

Speak to your heart and soul it shall be well. Matthew 6:26

“Say to the Righteous It shall be well with you you shall eat the fruit of your work”  Isaiah 3:10

Ecclesiastes  8:12 Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:

“Righteousness is the greatest security for every man”

“`Never compromise your stand as the Righteous…

Even when things looks contrary. It’s in these times of test we are tried and refined (James 1:3)

Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:
He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.
Luke  6:47,48 KJV

All things work together for the good of the that love the Lord and for them who are the called according to him purpose.(Romans 8:28)

God’s plans towards you are good thoughts.(Isaiah 29:11)

TAKE His love  PERSONAL dear Believer,

Never forget, “you  are more than a conqueror despite the challenge through HIS LOVE TO YOU”

Open Heavens Devotional Review for August 26th 2020

Bible Reading: 2 Samuel 11:1-7

Idleness is staying without doing anything useful. It involves a great deal of spending resources yet not accomplishing any productive goal.

It was never intended for man to be idle, in the beginning God, the creator put man I the Garden at the East of Eden and told him to keep it. (Genesis 2:15)

So there’s work you should be doing per time.

1 Chronicles 12:32 And of the children of Issachar, which were men that had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…

Idleness they say is the devil’s workshop because if you’re not working on productive things, the devil takes advantage of you, because he comes to steal, kill and destroy…

We saw how He did this to David and others in the past …This disadvantage can only be recovered by God’s mercy and grace.
Christ Jesus on the other hand wants us enjoy #Eternal life (a life knowing the Father experientially) and invest in this life daily. (Gal. 6:5, Jn 10:10; 17:3)

What are you investing your time in?
Set your heart to understanding what God’s will(per time/season of your day/life and do it.
…Take full advantage of every day as you spend your life for his purposes. 17 And don’t live foolishly for then you will have discernment to fully understand God’s will.  Ephesians 5:16b, 17
(The Passion Translation)


Open Heavens TEENS Devotional Review for August 21, 2020

Grace and peace to you as you grow in the knowledge of God

Welcome to the open Heavens TEENS Devotional Review for August 21st 2020

Today’s Topic: CLIMBING UP
1 Samuel 17: 33-37
Text Highlight;
1 Samuel 17:36-37 I have done this to both lions and bears, and I’ll do it to this heathen Philistine too, for he has defied the armies of the living God! The Lord who saved me from the claws and teeth of the lion and the bear will save me from this Philistine!” Saul finally consented, “All right, go ahead,” he said, “and may the Lord be with you!”

David was a teenager who stood out of his peers. He was the only one among His age group who went to the Warfield and he eventually conquered a huge problem for Israel, Goliath the Giant.

When faced with different life goals/challenges there are some characters you have to exhibit one of which is DILIGENCE
To be successful in your goal, you’ll have to be diligent.
Proverbs 22:29 says
Do you know a hard-working man? He shall be successful and stand before kings!
(The Living Bible)

That’s what made David stand before the King of Israel.

He said to the King,
“I have killed the lion and the bear, this philistine will fall like them”
David had been taking care of his Father’s animald practiced his skills of warfare and when it was time to deliver, He did so

If you want to be successful, pay attention to your skills be diligent and develop them.
As a student, The best person in your class had a secret/success strategy if yours is not working, find out why and ask God to give you a better one.
When he does, follow it with diligence.

#welcome to today’s Open Heavens Devotional Review, August 20th 2020

Today’s Topic is
Acts 28:1-6

In the world today,
We are in the days where
We have many people who are professors of different degrees and it seems everything can be explained by the internet.

All this is prophesied to occur in these days. But there are situations and cases that cannot be answered naturally but are a proof of Spiritual things.

Ephesians  6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, _but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places._

Spiritual activities are very real, even though they can’t be seen by the physical eyes because this realm was created by God who is a Spirit in the beginning. (Genesis 1:1, Hebrews 11:3).
That’s why you need to be born again, so you can see rightly(John 3:3’8)

The Lord Jesus himself made us understand that the devil who is a spiritual being exists and has a measure of influence in natural things like sickness, death in the Earth today.
John 10:10
1 John 3:8…
For this purpose the son of man comes, to destroy the works of the devil

All these influences which are linked to sin are a major spiritual factor that affects every human being and robs him or her of access to a relationship with God, but Christ Jesus died to destroy that influence on the devil on humanity

And this is life eternal that they might know you, the only true God and Jesus Christ who you have sent Jn17:3

Jesus Christ is the true wisdom for life, He wants you to enjoy eternal life which makes you experientially know God.


Open heavens Teens Devotional August 18th 2020 Secret Sin

From the open heavens TEENS devotional
Welcome to the review for 18th August 2020

Text from Numbers 20:1-7

Secret sins are faults,usually hidden and sometimes used by the devil to accuse a believer.

Checking through the lives of some Bible figures like Moses we see how mighty he was used by GOD but sometimes he allowed anger rule him. This costed him entrance to the promised land of Canaan.
Secret sins never produce good results.

No matter how sweet they are. The end is a separation from the good and abundant life God has for you. The devil only uses that to attract people but it’s like a cage that He cannot be free.

How do I break free?
Call on Jesus. (John 8:32 and 36) This is his business and all you need to do is believe His Word.
David told us that a young man can cleanse his way by obeying the word of God(Psalm 119:11)
Tell Jesus that secret sin and ask Him to help you deal with it. He won’t judge you that oh you did this. He knows what if feels to be tempted too.(Hebrews 4:15 so
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

God Loves and He cares No to secret sins



Good Morning Beloved,

As you go out today, Know that your are the aroma and perfume of Christ,
So spread His Love,
Spread His Word
Let the Light Shine

“Preach the Gospel at all times and when necessary use words”

Open Heavens Devotional Review, 15th August 2020.
Search the Scriptures.
Acts 17:11-12

And they continued steadfastly in the Apostle’s doctrine, in breaking of bread and in prayers. Acts 2:42

Bible study is essential part of Christian living. The Word of God as David wrote is a light unto my feet…(Psalm 119:105)
David has come to understand and value the word of God to him personally and not just the entire congregation.

Many believers today live by what this pastor’s says. Even as we honour the pastor as God’s servant. It’s not an excuse for you to not study the Bible yourself. There are some understanding and revelations you cannot get from the pastor but the Holy Spirit himself will guide you as Jesus promised.(John 16:13)
Our text is an example of some notable beliebers who didn’t see the sunday’s teaching as an excuse not to study but to study more. They are called noble .

Develo/Join Bible study groups to remain efficient/accountable to your plans.
Study to show yourself to God. rightly dividing the word of Truth. 2 Timothy. 2:15

Open Heavens TEENS Devotional Review for August 15th 2020

1 Corinthians 6:11-14.

Our world is growing more techy daily. New inventions/tech are coming up so fast and the world is being connected more and more.

As Christian teens, we have to be watchful. There are various secret/deceitful platforms the devil brings our way while surfing the net/social media that can be very dangerous to your spiritual growth. Don’t allow your heart be carried away by the latest this/that or trend online that you forget God’s desire for you to live pure and share the gospel everywhere you are. You can post scriptures on your wall, or lessons from a Christian book you are reading. But as Jesus said you are the light of the word and the salt of the Earth. You don’t have to be “salted/encouraged by the online trends but be the light/salt.
