Open Heaven 5 February 2022 TOPIC: Living in Glory II

Memorise: I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread. Psalms 37:25

READ: Genesis 26:12-14(KJV)

12. Then lsaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.

 

13. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great:

 

14. For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:  Leviticus 17:1-16, Leviticus 18:1-30

Open Heaven 5 February 2022 Message

Glory is a shame terminator. Wherever the glory of God is present, shame will never be found there Hence, anything that is shameful embarrassing or humiliating – such as sickness, poverty, a sinful lifestyle, backsliding, bondage, and failure, should not be identified with children of God.

Read: Open Heavens 4 February 2022 – Living in Glory I  

Poverty is closely associated with hunger, nakedness, homelessness, begging for alms, and wandering. Indeed, poverty is evil, and it has a way of dehumanizing people.

 

However, being a child of God or attending Church services or programmes does not automatically cast away poverty. To be free from poverty, you must be completely obedient to God.

 

In today’s Bible reading, Isaac was determined to pursue greener pastures in Egypt in order to escape the terrible famine in the land. The Lord however warned him not to take that step, then showed him where he should dwell.

 

Isaac obeyed and God blessed him greatly, as we see in Genesis 26:12-14 “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. And the man waxed great, and went forward, and grew until he became very great: For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him”

 

In essence, the Bible is saying that Isaac reaped the fruit of obedience. Furthermore, to be free from poverty, one must be diligent in business.

Despite Gods promise of abundant blessings in Genesis 26:3, lsaac did not fold his hands, waiting for the miracle. He cultivated, sowed, and laboured hard in the field, then the Lord fulfilled His promise by blessing his labour.

 

Also, we must persevere in the face of obstacles on our way to achieving true success. There is always an interval between sowing and reaping.

 

It is usually a period when obstacles and challenges come at you from every angle; perseverance is highly required to overcome.

 

Finally, you must not be a robber of Gods tithes, first fruit and offerings. Obedience in all these things is needed to live a glorious life free of poverty, shame, and all sorts of evil put together.

Open Heaven 5 February 2022 PRAYER POINT:

Father, please let Your glory fill me and set me free from poverty, in Jesus name.

Open Heaven 5 February 2022 HYMN: O WORSHIP THE KING

1. O worship the King,

All glorious above,

O gratefully sing

His power and His love;

Our Shield and Defender,

The Ancient of Days,

Pavilioned in splendour,

And girded with praise.

 

2. O tell of His might,

O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light,

Whose canopy space.

His chariots of wrath

The deep thunder-clouds form,

And dark is His path

On the wings of the storm.

 

3. Thy bountiful care,

What tongue can recite?

It breathes in the air,

It shines in the light,

It streams from the hills,

It descends to the plain,

And sweetly distils

In the dew and the rain.

 

4. Frail children of dust,

And feeble as frail;

In Thee do we trust,

Nor find Thee to fail;

Thy mercies, how tender,

How firm to the end,

Our maker, Defender,

Redeemer, and Friend!

 

5. O measureless Might!

Ineffable Love!

While angels delight

To hymn Thee above,

The humbler creation,

Though feeble their lays,

With true adoration,

Shall lisp to Thy praise.
