TOPIC: God Can Still Do It

MEMORISE:"But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 2 Peter 3:8

READ: Isaiah 55:10-13 (KJV)

10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:

11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Open Heaven For Today 2023 – Open Heavens 19 December

12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Hebrews 9-10

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Has God made a promise to you and its fulfilment still outstanding? I want you to know that God is never late and He can still do what He promised within the remaining few days of the year.

As long as you are very sure that God made that promise to you and you have been doing your own part in getting that thing He promised, I can assure you that He will do it before the end of this year as He promised. Don’t give up hope.

The importance of a statement is determined by who is making the statement. Imagine that a sick person admitted in a hospital is told by a cleaner that he or she would be discharged on a particular date.

The patient will be correct to doubt the statement because the cleaner does not have the authority and knowledge needed to discharge him or her.

However, if the doctor comes, observes the patient and says “You will be going home today”, then the patient can begin to rejoice.

The One who gave you promises at the beginning of the year is He, who is called the Truth according to John 14:6.

Numbers 23:19 says:

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?”

This God is called the Most High and the Almighty so there is nothing He cannot do.

He has shown up at the last minute for many people before. Since He has done it before, He will do it again for you, in Jesus’ name.

As long as you are sure that He promised you and you also know that you haven’t done anything to make Him change His mind.

Please keep your faith alive because James 1:6 says if you doubt in your heart, then you will not receive what you ask for.

If however, you have not been faithful to God or you have not been playing your part for the fulfilment of His promises to you, come before him today and confess your errors. 

Forsake them and ask Him to forgive you.

God is merciful and if he sees your sincerity, He will in no wise cast you away (John 6:37).

Key Point

Keep your faith alive. God can still bring His promises to pass before the end of the year.

HYMN 21: – Standing On The Promises Of Christ My King

1 Standing on the promises of Christ, my King,

Through eternal ages let his praises ring;

Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,

Standing on the promises of God.


Standing, standing,

Standing on the promises of God, my Savior;

Standing, standing,

I’m standing on the promises of God.

2 Standing on the promises that cannot fail.

When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail,

By the living Word of God I shall prevail,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

3 Standing on the promises of Christ, the Lord,

Bound to him eternally by love’s strong cord,

Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

4 Standing on the promises I cannot fall,

List’ning ev’ry moment to the Spirit’s call,

Resting in my Savior as my all in all,

Standing on the promises of God. [Refrain]

Open Heaven For Today 2023 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – The Key to Divine Power

TOPIC: The Key to Divine Power

MEMORISE:"And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled." 2 Corinthians 10:6

READ: 2 Corinthians 7:1(KJV)

1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Hebrews 5-8

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

When I became a Christian, I was determined not to be an ordinary one. I wanted to be a Christian with power to do the impossible.

I soon discovered that to get power from God, you need to be totally sold out to Him.

When you study Paul the Apostle who was so powerful that his handkerchiefs and aprons were healing the sick, you will see that when he beheld Christ on his way to Damascus,

as he hit the ground, he said, 

“What do you want me to do Lord?” 

(Acts 9:61). That is total surrender from the onset.

You hear him say in Galatians 2:20

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless Hive; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

In other words, He was saying, 

“Forget the Paul you used to know, forget all you knew about me; the only reason I am living now is that Christ is living in me.” 

This is why he said in Philippians 1:21

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” 

By God’s special grace, He has done so many great things through me that make me glad that I surrendered all to Him.

These are things that outweigh the pain of total surrender. Some people want God to use them mightily, but they still tell lies once in a while.

Some want to heal the sick but their money is too precious for God to take from them.

Some want to command demons but even the devil is looking at them and saying, 

“From your sinful mouth? You think you can command me?” 

Take your focus off the things of this world that distract you and surrender completely to God.

Pray without ceasing, study your Bible regularly, fast often – just go all in with God. Let Him know that you are His and His alone.

Don’t worry about the earthly things you are chasing now – Jesus Christ promised in Matthew 19:29: 

"And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name’s sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” 

I can attest to that promise because He has fulfilled it in my life. Try Him and see.

Prayer Point

Father, give me the grace to do what it takes to become a custodian of Your power on earth.

HYMN 7: – I Am Thine O Lord

1 I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,

And it told Thy love to me;

But I long to rise in the arms of faith,

And be closer drawn to Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

2 Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,

By the pow’r of grace divine;

Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,

And my will be lost in Thine.

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

3 Oh, the pure delight of a single hour

That before Thy throne I spend,

When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,

I commune as friend with friend!

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

4 There are depths of love that I cannot know

Till I cross the narrow sea;

There are heights of joy that I may not reach

Till I rest in peace with Thee.

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To the cross where Thou hast died;

Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,

To Thy precious, bleeding side.

Open Heaven For Today 2023 Sunday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Hold Fast

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: Hold Fast

MEMORISE:"My righteousness I hold fast, and will not let it go: my heart shall not reproach me so long as I live." Job 27:6

READ: Revelation 3:10-13 (KJV)

10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.

12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.

13 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Hebrews 1-4

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.

John 14:2

God is preparing a place you. However, if you are still committing sin and feeling it is okay to do so, sorry, you have no place in heaven.

The place He is preparing in Heaven is only for those living Holy and are without blemish, spot or wrinkle. 

He is coming back only for this people as they will be presented to Himself as His bride. Ephesians 5:27.

It is interesting to know however, that Jesus may be preparing a mansion with the name of someone on it, but that fellow may eventually not stay in that mansion while someone else takes his or her place.

That is why Revelation 3:11 says

“Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.”

In the days when it was considered a crime in a certain country to believe in Jesus Christ, some soldiers arrested five young Christians.

In the peak of terribly cold weather, the soldiers stripped these five boys and sent them into a freezing lake. 

The soldiers built a fire to keep themselves warm and said to these boys,

“All you need to do to come to this warm fire and have your clothes on is to deny Jesus Christ”. 

After a little while, the boys began to freeze in the water.

When they were about to freeze to death, one of the boys raised his hand and told the soldiers he was no longer a Christian. 

They told him to come to the fire.

As he started moving towards the fire, God opened the eyes of one of the soldiers and he saw five angels, each one carrying a crown, just waiting for these boys to breathe their last so they could crown them and welcome them home.

As the boy who denied Jesus began to walk out of the lake, his angel turned to go away with his crown.

The soldier cried 

“Angel, wait for me, I will take the crown”. 

He removed his clothes, jumped into the lake, died with the other four and took the crown of that young man.

Starting a race is of little consequence; what really matters is if you reach the finish line.

Prayer Point

Father, whatever price I have to pay, don’t let me lose my crown. Don’t let me miss heaven, Lord.

HYMN 23: – Take My Life And Let It Be

1 Take my life and let it be

consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days;

let them flow in endless praise,

let them flow in endless praise.

2 Take my hands and let them move

at the impulse of thy love.

Take my feet and let them be

swift and beautiful for thee,

swift and beautiful for thee.

3 Take my voice and let me sing

always, only, for my King.

Take my lips and let them be

filled with messages from thee,

filled with messages from thee.

4 Take my silver and my gold;

not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect and use

every power as thou shalt choose,

every power as thou shalt choose.

5 Take my will and make it thine;

it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart it is thine own;

it shall be thy royal throne,

it shall be thy royal throne.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour

at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be

ever, only, all for thee,

ever, only, all for thee. 

Open Heaven For Today 2023 Saturday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – John the Beloved

TOPIC: John the Beloved

MEMORISE:"Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved". John 13:23

READ: John 13:21-28 (KJV)

21 When Jesus had thus said, he was troubled in spirit, and testified, and said, Verily, verily, I say unto you, that one of you shall betray me.

22 Then the disciples looked one on another, doubting of whom he spake.

23 Now there was leaning on Jesus' bosom one of his disciples, whom Jesus loved.

24 Simon Peter therefore beckoned to him, that he should ask who it should be of whom he spake.

25 He then lying on Jesus' breast saith unto him, Lord, who is it?

26 Jesus answered, He it is, to whom I shall give a sop, when I have dipped it. And when he had dipped the sop, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon.

27 And after the sop Satan entered into him. Then said Jesus unto him, That thou doest, do quickly.

28 Now no man at the table knew for what intent he spake this unto him.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Philemon 1; Titus 1-3

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Further into my study of how to become God’s favourite, I found that there was another disciple who also followed Jesus on the day He was crucified.

It was this disciple that helped Peter access the courtyard as we see in John 18:15-16

This other disciple apparently was John the Beloved as he referred to himself in the third person all through his account of the gospel.

When you read John 19:26-27, you will find that it was John who took the mother of Jesus into his own house. 

Anyone who looks after your mother must be very close to you.

I’ve always said that when you describe somebody as a Christian fanatic, it simply means he loves the Lord more than you.

In John 20:1-8, the Bible tells us that when they brought news to the Apostles that Jesus was risen, John was the first Apostle to get to the tomb.

In John 13:21-26 when the disciples sought to know who would betray the Lord, Peter beckoned to John and told him to ask Jesus, because he knew that John was the closest to him.

Thirteen people were at the table and two of them were speaking in codes the others could not understand. 

John was so close to Jesus that he could rest his head on His chest (John 13:23).

In our Bible reading for today, we see that it is only John that Jesus trusted with the identity of who would betray Him. 

Jesus trusted John with His secrets.

When God can trust you with His secrets, you become extremely close to Him. Jesus made John His confidant, that is why you find that in Revelation 1:1-20, it was John the Beloved whom Jesus chose to give the story of what will happen in the end times, Thousands of years ahead of his time.

In Revelation 10:4, there are things Jesus revealed to John that He said were for his ears only.

When you truly love God, you become willing to seek and fulfill His primary heart desire which is to bring souls into His Kingdom.


Do you love God enough to place your head in His bosom?

HYMN 10: – In Christ Alone

1 In Christ alone my hope is found,

He is my light, my strength, my song;

This Cornerstone, this solid Ground,

Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.

What heights of love, what depths of peace,

When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!

My Comforter, my All in All,

Here in the love of Christ I stand.

2 In Christ alone, who took on flesh,

Fullness of God in helpless babe.

This gift of love and righteousness,

Scorned by the ones He came to save:

Till on that cross as Jesus died,

The wrath of God was satisfied –

For every sin on Him was laid;

Here in the death of Christ I live.

3 There in the ground His body lay,

Light of the world by darkness slain:

Then bursting forth in glorious day

Up from the grave He rose again!

And as He stands in victory

Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me,

For I am His and He is mine –

Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

4 No guilt in life, no fear in death,

This is the power of Christ in me;

From life’s first cry to final breath,

Jesus commands my destiny.

No power of hell, no scheme of man,

Can ever pluck me from His hand:

Till He returns or calls me home,

Here in the power of Christ I’ll stand.
