Open Heavens 16 March 2024 TOPIC: Live Selflessly

MEMORISE:-"Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created". Revelation 4:11

READ:Genesis 50:15-21(KJV)

9 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.

10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.

Open Heavens 16 March 2024 — Live Selflessly

11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?

12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 11-13

Open Heavens 16 March 2024 MESSAGE:

The twenty-four elders in heaven made it clear in today’s memory verse that we were created to fulfil God’s pleasure.

When we live for ourselves alone, we negate the purpose of our existence.

When a person lives for God, he or she would not abuse any privilege or opportunity.

Joseph is a good example of someone who lived for God and his fellow human beings, particularly his brothers.

Even though they eventually repaid him with evil, his selfless service made him go the extra mile to find them and deliver their food to them when he couldn’t locate them initially.

He could have returned home with the supplies he took with him, but he didn’t. You can find the story in Genesis 37:13-28.

Joseph’s love for God caused him to reject the sexual advances of his master’s wife.

He could not bear doing anything that will displease God, and this made him say in Genesis 39:9:

There is none greater in this house than I; neither hath he kept back any thing from me but thee, because thou art his wife: how then can I do this great wickedness, and sin against God?

Furthermore, his love for people made him interpret the dreams of his fellow inmates, which led to him becoming the Prime Minister of Egypt.

When he eventually came into power, he did not consider the hardships he endured due to the cruelty of his brothers when they sold him into slavery.

The love of God in him made him realise that his sufferings served a higher purpose for God and humanity. He said in Genesis 50:20:

But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Our Father in heaven wants us to live a selfless life so that we can attain the fullness of His purpose for our lives.

Those who are selfish short-change themselves without knowing it.

Moses, even though he lived in affluence in Pharoah’s palace, decided to suffer with his brethren (the Israelites) and eventually saved them from bondage by leading them out of Egypt (Hebrews 11:24-27).

His selflessness ensured that he fulfilled God’s purpose for his life and the nation of Israel at large.

Beloved, begin to live beyond yourself, and you will have the fullness of God’s grace to divinely prosper, both spiritually and physically.

Father, from today, please help me to live selflessly, in Jesus’ name.

Open Heavens 16 March 2024 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.
