Open Heaven 24 October 2022 TOPIC: Peace Like A River

MEMORISE: The LORD will give strength unto his people; the LORD will bless his people with peace. Psalms 29:11

READ: ISAIAH 48:18-22 (KJV)

18 O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

 

19 Thy seed also had been as the sand, and the offspring of thy bowels like the gravel thereof; his name should not have been cut off nor destroyed from before me.

 

20 Go ye forth of Babylon, flee ye from the Chaldeans, with a voice of singing declare ye, tell this, utter it even to the end of the earth; say ye, The Lord hath redeemed his servant Jacob.

 

21 And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out.

 

22 There is no peace, saith the Lord, unto the wicked.

Open Heaven 24 October 2022 MESSAGE:

When someone just receives Christ, the first thing they experience is peace. Somehow, they just suddenly feel at peace. That is what happens to children of God, because the One in us is the Prince of Peace Himself.

 

 

The memory verse for today says that God will only give peace to His people. If you are not one of His people, there can be no peace for you. Those who disobey God have no peace (Isaiah 48:22).

 

“The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion.” Proverbs 28:1 Having all the money in the world would not bring you peace. You get peace by simply obeying the word of God. I am privileged to have met many wealthy people, and when I say wealthy, I mean very wealthy.

 

However, some of these people cannot sleep at night. There was an extremely wealthy man who said to me once that he could not sleep. He explained that whenever he closed his eyes to sleep, he would find himself amongst dead people.

 

I may not be so wealthy, but once my head hits my pillow, I fall asleep The fellow who stole yesterday cannot be at peace because he is hoping that the police will not knock on his door the next minute. The one engaged in extra-marital affairs cannot be at peace because the moment he sees his wife picking up his phone, he may have a heart attack.

 

 

The one who lied yesterday will be constantly thinking of other lies that will support the one already told. Disobeying Gods word takes away your peace. Choose to be obedient to the Lord at all times and His peace shall flow like a river in your life.

Open Heavens 24 October 2022 Prayer Points:

Nothing and no one can give you peace except the Prince of Peace Himself.

Open Heaven 24 October 2022 HYMN: Nearer, My God To Thee

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, to thee;

nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!

 

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;

nearer, my God, to thee, 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;

nearer, my God, to thee, 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;

nearer, my God, to thee, 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;

nearer, my God, to thee, nearer to thee!
