Open Heaven 17 July 2022 TOPIC: Whatsoever Things Are of Praise

Memorise: I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth. Psalms 34:1

Bible Reading: Philippians 4:8 (KJV)

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Bible Reading: Psalms 34:1-5 (KJV)

1. I will bless the LORD at all times: his praise shall continually be in my mouth.

 

2. My soul shall make her boast in the LORD: the humble shall hear thereof, and be glad.

 

3. O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.

 

4. I sought the LORD, and he heard me, and delivered me from all my fears.

 

5. They looked unto him, and were lightened: and their faces were not ashamed.

BIBLE IN YEAR: Psalms 119:121-176

Open Heaven 17 July 2022 Message

Probably the greatest thoughts any man can have are those of praise to God – when you just sit and begin to think of this great God and how marvellous He is. It is such thoughts that yielded names like Greater than the greatest, Stronger than the strongest, Richer than the richest, Wiser than the wisest, Older than the oldest which I call God today.

It is such thoughts that result in some of the wonderful songs of praise that musicians sing. Like one of my daughters who sang about how big God is in Yoruba and said, Gbangba Gbanga. Such are the kinds of thoughts that every child of God should have.

 

Some people are angry with God because they feel He did not show up for them when they needed Him, but how can you be angry with your Maker?.

 

Isaiah 45:9 says: “Woe unto him that striveth with his Maker! Let the potsherd strive with the potsherds of the earth. Shall the clay say to him that fashioneth it, What makest thou? or thy work, He hath no hands?”

 

I laugh most times when I hear people give God ultimatums to do their bidding. If He doesn’t do what you want, what can you do? Will you charge Him to court? Who will rule against the King of kings? In our memory verse for today, David said he would bless the Lord at ALL times.

 

This means that, whether in sorrow or happiness, plenty or lack, life or death, he would continue to bless the Lord. He also said in Psalms 71:20 that even though he had been through many sorrows, he knew that God would raise him again.

 

Today, I want you to put aside all your troubles and just think of how great God is. Look for a notebook and write down some of your thoughts of praise for Him.

 

You can even share some of these thoughts with other people around you and discuss the greatness of our God. Let thoughts of praise to this Mighty God fill your heart all the time.

Open Heaven 17 July 2022 KEY POINT:

You can’t fight the Maker of heaven and earth; praise Him instead.

Open Heaven 17 July 2022 HYMN: NEARER, MY GOD

1.  Nearer, my God, to Thee,

nearer to thee!

E’en though it be a cross

that raiseth me,

still all my song shall be,

nearer, my God,

 

2.  Though like the wanderer,

the sun gone down,

darkness be over me,

my rest a stone;

yet in my dreams I’d be

nearer, my God, to Thee; (2ce)

nearer to Thee!

 

3.  There let the way appear,

steps unto heaven;

all that Thou sendest me,

in mercy given;

angels to beckon me

nearer, my God, to Thee; (2ce)

nearer to Thee!

 

4.  Then with my waking thoughts

bright with Thy praise,

out of my stony griefs

Bethel I’ll raise;

so by my woes to be

nearer, my God, to Thee; (2ce)

nearer to Thee!

 

5.  Or if, on joyful wing

cleaving the sky,

sun, moon, and stars forgot,

upward I fly,

still all my song shall be,

nearer, my God, to Thee; (2ce)

nearer to Thee!
