Open Heaven 1 May 2022 Message

In the last two days, we have established that what you put in your belly I must not be your preoccupation.

In fact, Philippians 3:19 says that whoever does whatever his belly dictates to him will end up in destruction. “Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”

 

The question then arises what should we be feeding on regularly? 1 Peter 2:2 says that: As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: Your appetite for the word of God must be insatiable, just like a baby’s appetite for milk.

 

You should be hungrier for God’s word than you are for regular food. The word of God should be a major part of our diet because he that is only alive in the flesh and dead in the spirit is as good as dead altogether.

 

“It is the spirit that giveth life the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. John 6:63” The word of God is spirit and life.

 

It is the real food that will keep you alive; feed on it daily! When I was a younger Christian, my friends and I ensured that before we ate any physical food, we would first study the word of God.

 

That is one of the major contributors to my growth spiritually. If you make the word of God your earnest desire, even you will be surprised at your spiritual growth. You will suddenly discover that you are beginning to think like Christ.

 

Which do you eat more – the word of God or physical food? Your desire must be for the word of God daily. One thing about the word is that it can never be exhausted.

 

That is one well that never runs dry! You can get a revelation from reading a passage today, then read it again tomorrow and the Holy Spirit teaches you something different from it. Make the word of God your daily meal.

Open Heaven 1 May 2022 KEY POINT:

Make sure that a day does not go by without you taking time to study and meditate on the word of God.

Open Heaven 1 May 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.
