Open Heaven 25 September 2019: [Wednesday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – Power In His Word
POWER IN HIS WORD – Wednesday September 25th 2019
Memorise: All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3
Read: Genesis 1:1-5 (KJV)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Open Heavens, Open Heaven for today

Those who fail to live according to God’s word don’t realise that they cannot attain their full potential in life without the power in the word, which created all things in the universe. Going against God’s word is like standing in the path of a moving train. 


Those who do this will only succeed in wreaking havoc on themselves now and in eternity. When an engine is used contrary to its manufacturer’s guidelines, it breaks down. For example, if you try to run a diesel engine on petrol, you will only end up watching the money you sent in buying it go up in flames. This illustration describes what happens when a person goes contrary to God’s word, either ignorantly or deliberately. Since all things were made by the word of God, it goes without saying that this same word has the power to repair and restore those things it created that have become faulty. Speaking on the restorative and curative power of the word, Psalm 107:20 says:

“He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.”
It is therefore not surprising that God always emphasises compliance with His word.

Open Heaven 25 September 2019: [Wednesday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E.A Adeboye – Power In His Word 

Genesis 1:2 reveals that before the creative power of God’s word came into action, the earth was shapeless, empty and chaotic. However, when the omnipotent power of the word was released, the earth took good shape. Beloved, are you in despair because your life seems void and shapeless? If you allow God’s word to operate in your life today, everything will turn around for the better. When God commanded that there should be light, light came into being. Those who live by God’s word do not live in darkness, because Jesus is the Word of God and also the Light of the world (John 8:12). 

Open Heaven 25 September 2019 Wednesday Prayer Point

When He comes into your life, emptiness becomes history. For one reason or the other, some people have never experienced a good day since they were born. If they allow God’s Word, in the person of Jesus, to dwell, in them, they will have a testimony like the one Peter had. As a fisherman, Peter laboured all through the night without catching any fish, but when he allowed Jesus into His boat, he had a net-breaking and boat-sinking catch of fish in the same place where he had earlier laboured and caught nothing (Luke 5:4-7). It is indeed God who gives power to get wealth, and this power is in His word (Deuteronomy 8:18, Joshua 1:8). The light that God’s word gives is available to anyone groping in darkness. Remember, darkness is harmful and so we need the light of God’s word to illuminate our paths so that we do not stumble or fall in a ditch. Psalm 119:105 says:

“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Beloved, embrace the infallible word of God today, and it will do you good.
