TOPIC: Consecration

MEMORISE:-"Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you." 2 Corinthians 6:17

READ: Romans 12:1-2(KJV)

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 1-3

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Consecration means being totally surrendered to God, in other words, holding on to Him and Him alone.

Unfortunately, a lot of people hold on to Jesus with one hand and hold on to the world with the other.

How do you explain Christians who claim to have given their all to Christ but who still consult witch doctors over challenging situations?

Truly consecrated Christians are ready to go all the way for God. Such people may go through a lot of suffering for the Lord, but they will still count it all joy, as long as God is with them (James 1:2).

A good example of a genuinely consecrated person was Apostle Paul. He was totally sold out to God, such that even when God warned him about being apprehended in Jerusalem, he still went there to preach the gospel (Acts 21:11-14).

He was so consecrated that he declared in Galatians 2:20:

I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; 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.

Consecrated people care about God more than anyone or anything else. I was watching an interview on Dove Television one day, and the guest said that in the past, all Christians cared about was for God to use them, but nowadays, people are more interested in how they can use God.

Many people just use Christianity as a cover-up to look good in the society, but when a little test comes, they denounce Christ.

For example, these days, many Christians compromise their faith to get married. They wear revealing outfits to attract men, attend ungodly gatherings with the hope of finding suitors, and worse still, engage in premarital sex.

A missionary’s inspiring story greatly impacted my decision to be consecrated to God. She was serving in an area that was hostile to Christianity.

On her wedding day, while she was getting ready, the authorities raided her home and arrested her for preaching the gospel.

Instead of crying, she smiled, kissed the handcuffs and said, 

“Lord, I didn’t know I was so special to You that You didn’t want to share me with anyone else. How beautiful is Your wedding ring to me.” 

She was so sold out to God that while others saw a disaster, she saw the handcuffs as God’s wedding ring to her as His bride.

Beloved, are you consecrated to Jesus?


Are you willing to go through sufferings for the sake of Christ?

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.

TOPIC: He Did It All For You 2

MEMORISE:-"For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself". Hebrews 9:26

READ: Matthew 26:37-45(KJV)

37 And he took with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very heavy.

38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.

39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.

40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?

41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.

43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.

44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 28-31

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Jesus knows the end from the beginning, so He knew that what was going to happen to Him on the cross would be very terrible.

This made Him pray in Matthew 26:39, saying,

“…O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”

The Bible recorded that while He was saying this prayer, His sweat was like blood. This tells us that He took that prayer very seriously. Yet, Jesus still decided to go through with the suffering.

Jesus did not lay down His life out of compulsion. He said clearly in John 10:18 that He laid down His life willingly.

That statement is heavy, and it made me ask, 

“What kind of love will make a man surrender Himself to be humiliated and slaughtered like this?”

I saw the perfect answer to my question in John 15:13 which says:

Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.

This is the greatest kind of love in the world. Jesus loves you more than anyone in the world can ever love you, and He showed it by laying down His life for you.

Again, I asked myself, 

“What will make a man surrender His life like this?”

I saw the answer to this question in John 10:11-12. The Good Shepherd never deserts the sheep when He sees a wolf coming.

He stays and protects the sheep from being devoured because of the love He has for the sheep.

The devil is the wolf that tries to steal, kill and destroy, while Jesus is the Good Shepherd that laid down His life for you to have eternal life.

Jesus is the only genuine protection you can get from the claws of the wolf – the devil.

If you believe in Him, and surrender your life to Him, the wolf will have no power over you because Jesus has already died for you.

The wolf, however, is free to devour anyone that is not following Jesus or believers that stray away from Him.

Beloved, if you don’t want to be prey to the devil, give your life to Jesus Christ now. Commit to following Him and Him alone.

He paid the ultimate price for you, and He is the only One that can lead you into everlasting life.

Key Point

Only those who are in the flock of the Good Shepherd are safe from the claws of the wolf

HYMN 19:–  Hymn: Rock of Ages, cleft for me

1 Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 

let me hide myself in thee; 

let the water and the blood, 

from thy wounded side which flowed, 

be of sin the double cure; 

save from wrath and make me pure. 

2 Not the labors of my hands 

can fulfill thy law’s demands; 

could my zeal no respite know, 

could my tears forever flow, 

all for sin could not atone; 

thou must save, and thou alone. 

3 Nothing in my hand I bring, 

simply to the cross I cling; 

naked, come to thee for dress; 

helpless, look to thee for grace; 

foul, I to the fountain fly; 

wash me, Savior, or I die. 

4 While I draw this fleeting breath, 

when mine eyes shall close in death, 

when I soar to worlds unknown, 

see thee on thy judgment throne, 

Rock of Ages, cleft for me, 

let me hide myself in thee.  

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Thursday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Christainity Is Personal

TOPIC: Christainity Is Personal

MEMORISE:-"Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations". Jeremiah 1:5

READ: John 10:3-4(KJV)

3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.

4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 22-24

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Whenever God wants to talk to a congregation, no matter how large, He will address individuals.

Revelations 3:20 was written to an entire Church, but He said, “If any man…” John 3:16 says, “God loved the whole world, that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever…”

We came into this world one at a time. Genesis 25:21-26 makes it clear that even when twins are born, they come out one at a time. Even if the twins are to be delivered by a Caesarean operation, the doctor will bring one out first before the second.

Romans 14:12 says that we are all going to give an account of ourselves before God. The messages you read in this devotional are not for everybody, they are for you in particular.

Whenever David wants to talk about something very serious, he personalises it. In Psalms 23:1, he said, 

“The Lord is MY shepherd; I shall not want.” He didn’t say, “The Lord is our shepherd.”

Whenever some brethren want to close a service, they will say, 

“Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow us all the days of our lives, and we shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.”

I always wonder where they got that from because it is not written in my Bible.

What is written is, “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever” (Psalms 23:6).

Goodness and mercy are not for us they are for me. The result of my dwelling is for me, not for US.

In Psalms 27:8, David said,

“When you said, seek my face, my heart says, thy face will I seek.”

I don’t know what others are thinking, how far they want to go in the Lord, and how hungry and thirsty for God they are.

I cannot thirst and hunger for God on their behalf. Don’t let someone else’s lack of hunger for God affect you, even if he is your pastor.

Your walk with God is personal. When you come face to face with God in judgement, you will give an account of yourself individually.

So, if you see someone who does not take his Christian life seriously, don’t let it bother you; Christianity is an individual matter.

Seek the face of God and encourage others to do so, but don’t let their laxity influence you.


Christianity is completely personal. Don’t let anyone’s behaviour hinder your individual walk with God.

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. [Refrain]

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! [Refrain]

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. [Refrain]

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Thou Shall Not Steal

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

MEMORISE:-"Thou shalt not steal." Exodus 20:15

READ: Ephesians 4:27-28(KJV)

27 Neither give place to the devil.

28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 19-21

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

The lust of the eyes, the pride of life, and the lust of the flesh are reasons many take what belongs to other people.

The obsession to have it all without working for them and being controlled by material things will eventually lead to stealing.

God wants you to have everything you truly need but in His own way and at His own time. He is willing to give you everything you need and more, but you must seek Him and His righteousness first.

Nobody can bless you more than God, so it is better to wait for God’s blessing because it will make you rich without any form of sorrow being added to it (Proverbs 10:22).

Don’t let the devil deceive you with flashy things. Mark 8:36 says that all the material gains in the world will profit you nothing if you lose your soul.

Beloved, please do not trade your soul for material gains by stealing. Nothing at all in this world is worth your soul.

God frowns strongly at stealing. If you desire to have more, work more. Do not take from those who have laboured for their possessions. Some people try to categorise and rationalise stealing.

For example, some people will say corruption is not stealing. Some will even try to explain why internet fraud is different from stealing.

Beloved, the moment a person takes something that does not belong to him or her without the permission of the owner or under false pretences, that fellow has stolen.

In 1 Corinthians 6:10, the Bible makes it clear that no thief will enter heaven. The devil is the father of thieves because, according to John 10:10, stealing is his first assignment in any man’s life.

My father in the Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, used to say that your father will take care of you with whatever he has.

If your father is God, then He will take care of you with healings, blessings, and long life, but if your father is the devil, he will take care of you with sicknesses, marital problems, death, and the like.

Thieves should never expect God to answer their prayers because God is not their father.

In Leviticus 6:4 and Exodus 22:1-4 God said that if you have stolen something, you are to return it to the fellow you stole from in double fold.

Don’t keep stolen property in your possession.

Finally, let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth (Ephesians 4:28).

Key Point

Stealing puts you in the camp of the devil and gives him lordship over you. Don’t steal.

HYMN 31:– Yield Not To Temptation 

1. When we walk with the Lord,

In the light of His word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will

He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.


Trust and obey!

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

But to trust and obey.

2. But we never can prove

The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay,

For the favour He shows

And the joy He bestows

Are for them who will trust and obey. [Refrain]

3. Then in fellowship sweet

We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,

What He says we will do,

Where He sends we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey. [Refrain]
