Granted in what He ordaineth?

Ponder anew, What the Almighty can do,

Who with His love doth befriend thee

Oh, let all that is in me adore Him!

All that hath breath, join with

Abraham’s seed to adore Him!

Let the Amen, sum all our praises again;

Now as we worship before Him.

Open Heaven For Today 2023 Saturday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Don`t Be Greedy

TOPIC: Don`t Be Greedy

MEMORISE:"He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live." Proverbs 15:27

READ:Proverbs 1:17-19 (KJV)

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.

18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.

19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Revelation 18-19

Open Heaven 30 December 2023 MESSAGE:

Proverbs 1:17-19 says he who is greedy of gain lays wait for his own blood.

He ambushes his own life. God says you are waiting to destroy your own life when you are greedy.

Proverbs 15:27 says the one who is greedy of gain troubleth his own house.

You create a problem for your family when you are greedy.

Children can get into trouble because their parents have been greedy.

Several years ago when we were starting a parish of the Redeemed Christian Church of God in Zambia, a native who was supposed to be our representative was collecting money for the purpose of building the Church and diverting it to His private use.

One day, his daughter was playing with their door – a little one installed to stop goats from gaining entrance into the house while fresh air and illumination can come in from the top.

Suddenly the door broke off and a loose nail from it pierced the girl’s eye and plucked it out.

I prayed for the child, reminding the Lord of her father’s service in the Church.

The Lord said I should ask him certain things.

I did, further telling him about what God would do if he lied.

With his head down, trembling, he said 

“I have not been faithful. I have been misappropriating the money sent to me to build the church”.

Those who are greedy may show off their ill-gotten wealth and parade themselves as smart, but as the word of God stands sure, their real pain is on its way.

Some are already going through their own pain and are hiding it from the whole world.

Don’t get tempted to become like them because you don’t know the sufferings they are hiding in the background.

Greed is an invitation to take unlawfully what is not yours.

The interesting thing is, that thing you are greedily desiring can be yours if only you will patiently go through the right process.

Those who allow greed to override contentment in their lives will eventually lose what they have.

The devil was an archangel but lost it all because he was greedy for what could never be his.

A greedy fellow has no gratitude for God’s blessings in his or her life and believes in snatching what belongs to others.

Think about all God has done for you this year and express your gratitude to Him so he can do more for you in 2024

Prayer Point

Lord, help me to be happy and content with all You have given me, in Jesus name.

HYMN 16:– Praise Him, Praise Him, Jesus Our Blessed Redeemer

1 Praise him, praise him! Jesus, our blessed redeemer!

Sing, O earth, his wonderful love proclaim!

Hail him, hail him! Highest archangels in glory!

Strength and honour give to his holy name!

Like a shepherd, Jesus will guard his children.

In his arms he carries them all day long.

O ye saints that dwell on the mountain of His Zion,

Praise him! Praise him! ever in  joyful song.

2 Praise him, praise him! Jesus, our blessed redeemer!

For our sins, he suffered, and bled, and died.

He our rock, our hope of eternal salvation,

Hail him, Hail him! Jesus, the crucified;

Loving Saviour, meekly enduring sorrow,

Crowned with thorns that cruelly pierced His brow;

Once for us rejected, despised, and forsaken,

Prince of Glory, ever triumphant now.

3 Praise him, praise him! Jesus, our blessed redeemer!

Heav’nly portals loud with hosannas ring!

Jesus, Savior, reigneth forever and ever!

Crown him, crown him! prophet, and priest, and king!

Death is vanquished! Tell it with joy, ye faithful,

Where is now thy victory, boasting grave?

Jesus lives! No longer thy portals are cheerless;

Jesus lives, the mighty and strong to save.

TOPIC: Settled Beforehand

MEMORISE:"I will go before thee, and make the crooked places straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars of iron:" Isaiah 45:2

READ: Exodus 15:22-25 (KJV)

22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water.

23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah.

24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

25 And he cried unto the Lord; and the Lord shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Revelation 15-17

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

In our Bible reading for today, long before the children of Israel got to Marah, there was a tree growing by the pool of water.

The implication of that is this: before your problem started, God had provided the solution.

Whatever may be the nature of your problem, the solution is already waiting. All you need from God is guidance on what the solution is and how to use it.

Psalm 90:2 says:

“Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, thou art God.”

God has been there before whatever mountain might be blocking you, so He can uproot it easily.

The good thing is that God is not only the Alpha, He is also the Omega (Revelation 1:8), so He knows the future as well as the past.

He knows the things that the devil may be planning for you in 2024 and so will provide all you need to overcome him in the new year, even from now, in Jesus’ name.

He has already put in you all that you need to overcome in 2024. Fear not. Before Goliath started terrorising Israel, the stone that would kill him had been formed, waiting for when David would pick it up, put it in his catapult and shoot it at the giant.

Before the Philistines came for Samson, the jaw bone of the ass was already there, waiting. Before 2024 arrives, the things you will need to overcome in the new year are already available to you.

The tree that will turn bitter water to sweet had been there before the Israelites got to Marah; all that happened when Moses cried unto God is that light shone on a particular tree and God told Moses what should be done with it.

Isaiah 30:21 says that when you find yourself at a crossroads, you would hear a word behind you, showing you the way.

I pray that the way you will walk successfully through 2024 will be revealed to you today, in Jesus’ name. God will show you what to do to succeed in the new year, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Prayer Point

Father, please cause me to hear Your lovingkindness in the morning; for in You do I trust. Please Lord, cause me to know the way I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto You.” (Psalm 143:8)

HYMN 5:– Blessed Assurance

1 Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine!

Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!

Heir of salvation, purchase of God,

born of his Spirit, washed in his blood.


This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior all the day long.

This is my story, this is my song,

praising my Savior all the day long.

2 Perfect communion, perfect delight,

visions of rapture now burst on my sight.

Angels descending bring from above

echoes of mercy, whispers of love. [Refrain]

3 Perfect submission, all is at rest.

I in my Savior am happy and bless’d,

watching and waiting, looking above,

filled with his goodness, lost in his love. [Refrain]

Open Heaven For Today 2023 Thursday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Talk Is Cheap

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: Talk Is Cheap

MEMORISE:"The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach." Acts 1:1

READ: Matthew 23:1-7(KJV)

1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples,

2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:

3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

4 For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

5 But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,

6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,

7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Revelation 12-14

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Talk is cheap. I have seen countless people talk about things that are good, but when it comes to practicing them, they are nowhere to be found.

There are many Pastors who preach ‘powerful’ sermons on the altar, but at home, they don’t practice what they preach.

Talk is cheap, that is why only cheap people stay on the level of talk.

If I tell someone that over-speeding when driving is unsafe and then I do the same, does the fact that I talk about it exempt me from its consequences?

If you talk about prayer so well and you don’t pray, all the problems that follow prayerlessness will keep following you.

This is why we see many people who are sound in Scriptures, yet the word of God does not seem to be yielding anything in their lives.

Many a time, it is because they only know the Scriptures, they don’t live by it.

The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach.

Acts 1:1

The above passage shows how Jesus lived. He first “did’ before He ‘taught’. If you have not yet done that thing, you have no business teaching it. If it is really valuable as you claim it is, then you should do it first.

We who teach the gospel must note what James 3:1 says that teachers will receive the strictest judgement. 

This is because if you teach it, God expects you to have already been doing it. When you teach what you don’t do, thaat is hypocrisy. 

There are many people who are derailed when they see a teacher of the word not practicing what he or she preaches. 

May people not go to hell because you showed them the wrong example, in Jesus’ name.

Matthew 18:6 says:

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

If you really believe what you teach, practice it. If you cannot practice it, stop teaching it.

Key Point

Merely talking about something does not accrue to you its benefits to you. Practicing it is what does.

HYMN 3:–Ancient Words

1. Holy words long preserved

For our walk in this world

They resound with God’s own heart

Oh, let the ancient words impart


Ancient words ever true

Changing me and changing you

We have come with open hearts

Oh, let the ancient words impart

2. Words of Life, words of Hope

Give us strength, help us cope

In this world, where e’er we roam

Ancient words will guide us home

3. Holy words of our Faith

Handed down to this age

Came to us through sacrifice

Oh heed the faithful words of Christ

4. Holy words long preserved

For our walk in this world

They resound with God’s own heart

Oh let the ancient words impart
