Open Heaven 11 June 2022 Message

We have been talking about our children for some days now. Today, let us talk about you as a child. No matter how old you are, you must remain submissive to your parents – whether biological or spiritual.

“Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many. Proverbs 4:10” If you listen to your parents, you will live long because where you are now, they have been there before.

 

You may have all the gadgets now, but you don’t have the experience that your parents do. You may feel big because you have achieved even more than your parents, but you must not forget that God brought you to this world through them for a reason.

 

God wants us to receive godly counsel and instructions so we can be wise, as we see in Proverbs 19:20 “Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.”

 

Submitting to the authority of your parents now may seem like a burden, but later on in life, you will be glad that you did. They may not be as educated as you; still listen to them. May you never have all the scars that your parents do, in Jesus name.

 

Don’t ever raise your voice at your parents. They may be old, they may be slow, they may even have maltreated you when you were younger, yet, give them the respect that being your parents calls for.

 

An old person is closer to his grave and his or her words can have very serious consequences. If you bring tears to the eyes of your old parents, you are setting yourself up for destruction.

 

Don’t forget the law of sowing and reaping. What you sow today, you will reap tomorrow. Seek to get your parents blessings all the time. Make them happy, bring smiles to their faces, let them have rest when they think about you.

 

If they offended you when they were younger, forgive them so that their sin will not end up on your neck. It is not the duty of the child to punish the parents; leave them to the Lord who brought you to the world through them.

Open Heaven 11 June 2022 KEY POINT

No matter how big you have become, respect and honour your parents.

Open Heaven 11 June 2022 HYMN: O LORD MY GOD

1. O Lord my God!

When I in awesome wonder,

Consider all

The worlds Thy hands hath made

I see the stars,

I hear the rolling thunder

Thy pow’r thro’out

The universe displayed.

 

CHORUS:

Then sings my soul,

My Saviour God to Thee;

How great Thou art!

How great Thou art!

Then sings my soul,

My Saviour God to Thee;

How great Thou art,

How great Thou art!

 

2. When through the woods

And forest glades I wander,

And hear the birds

Sing sweetly in the trees;

When I look down

From lofty mountain grandeur

And hear the brook

And feel the gentle breeze;

 

3. And when I think

That God, His Son not sparing

Sent Him to die,

I scarce can take it in;

That on the cross,

My burden gladly bearing,

He bled and died

To take away my sin.

 

4. When Christ shall come

With shout of acclamation,

And take me home

What joy shall fill my heart!

Then I shall bow

In humble adoration

And there proclaim,

My God, how great Thou art!
