TOPIC: Alpha and Omega

MEMORISE: "Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:" Isaiah 46:10

READ: John 1:1-5(KJV)

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 The same was in the beginning with God.

Open Heaven For Today 2024 – Open Heavens 2 May

3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 13-16

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

In Revelation 1:8; our Lord Jesus Christ reavels Himself as Alpha and the Omega. later on in Revelation 21:6, He describes Himself as the Beginning and the End. 

For further emphasis, in Revelation 22:13

He said, "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last." Thi means that everything starts and ends with Him.

From the scriptures above, you will clearly see that you cannot start anything without God's permission, and you cannot finish anything without His approval. 

This is good news for you, especially if you areabout to embark on a project. Just talk to the Alpha and Omega about it. 

God is the one who  began this world, and He is the One who will end it. 

In  other words, everything in this world is under His control, therefore, when you are close to Him and let Him guide you throughout your life, you will have a better quality of life because the One in control is your guide. 

This is why Proverbs 3:5 says:

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

God knows what will happen before it happens. He knows where there is danger and where your blessing are hiding. 

He said in Isaiah 45:3 that He will show you the treasures of darkness and the hidden riches in secret places. He knows these things because He is the Beginning and the End. 

This is why David wrote confidently:

The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. Psalm 23:1-2

If I may ask, who is your shephard? Who guides you through life? For me, I know that I am too foolish to go through life on my own, and this is why I have made the Beginning and the End my Shephard. 

When I was looking to buy land for the Redeemed Christian Church of God's campground, I admired a particular location because it was on a major road, and in my own limited mind, it was perfect.

However, God guided us to the location we are now, which has now proven to be so much better because He is the End. Those who let Him guide their decisions never regret it 

Action Point

Let God guide you every move and decision. He knows the end from the beginning.

HYMN 28:  Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah

1 Guide me, O my great Redeemer,

pilgrim through this barren land;

I am weak, but you are mighty;

hold me with your powerful hand.

Bread of heaven, bread of heaven,

feed me now and evermore,

feed me now and evermore.

2 Open now the crystal fountain,

where the healing waters flow.

Let the fire and cloudy pillar

lead me all my journey through.

Strong Deliverer, strong Deliverer,

ever be my strength and shield,

ever be my strength and shield.

3 When I tread the verge of Jordan,

bid my anxious fears subside.

Death of death, and hell’s Destruction,

land me safe on Canaan’s side.

Songs of praises, songs of praises

I will ever sing to you,

I will ever sing to you.

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Wednesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Trust God

TOPIC: Trust God

MEMORISE: "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding." Proverbs 3:5

READ: Proverbs 3:5-8 (KJV)

5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 10-12

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Many people who claim to trust God with all their hearts surprisingly depend on their own understanding and attempt to strategise their way through life. 

The question, however, is, how deep is our understanding? Do we understand as much as God does? You must understand that two captains cannot be in charge of a ship at the same time. 

It is either you let God take the wheel of your life, or you leave Him out of it. 

You cannot be in the driver's seat and only remember God anytime you run into trouble; you must trust Him totally and rely on Him for everything. 

If you are truly a child of God, you must always be led by Him. (Romans 8:14).

Trusting God does not start out easy; He will work on you, and as He leads you, He will mould and shape you to become a better person. 

When you trust God to lead you, everything you touch prospers. Abraham was a man who trusted God competely, and he prospered greatly. 

He left everything he ever knew for a land that God said He would show him. He left without a plan; he was determined to trust God all the way. 

Shortly after, he grew so big that he had 318 men who could go to war with him living under his roof (Genesis 14:14). 

He was so rich that he rejected a king's gift so that the king would not take glory for his prosperity.

When you trust someone, you dont ask unnecessary questions. 

When you board a plane, you trust that the pilot knows what he is doing and that he will take you safely to your destination; you dont ask to see his license or inspect the condition of the plane. 

If you can trust human beings with your life that much, how much more the Most High God?

I leart to trust God very early in my Christain walk because my Sunday School teacher taught me that if a son is at the top of a high place and his father asks him to jump, he will not ask questions because he knows that his father will catch him. 

The moment I leart that, I began to trust God so much that once He says "Jump," I jump, knowing that He will catch me. 

Everything we have achieved in The Redeemed Christain Church of God to date has been purely based on trust. When He say move, I move. No arguments.

Action Point

Trust God with all your heart, and stop learning on your own understanding.

HYMN 30:  When We Walk With The Lord

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]

Open Heavens 30 April 2024 Tuesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – He Cares About Your Body

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

MEMORISE: "What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" 1 Corinthians 6:19

READ: 1 Corinthians 3:16-17 (KJV)

16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?

17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 7-9

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonians 5:23

The above passage tells us clearly that God wants your spirit, soul, and body to be preserved blameless until His coming.

This is opposed to what many people say about God only caring about our spirit and soul, and not our body.

God cares about your body, and He wants it to be blameless.

He cares about what you wear (1 Timothy 2:9), how you use your body (1 Corinthians 9:27), and if you get a tattoo or not (Leviticus 19:28).

He cares as much about your body as He cares about your soul.

The truth is, the state of your soul will determine the state of your body. What is inside will show on the outside.

Many years ago, I invited some ministers to teach at The Redeemed Christian Bible College.

They told the students that I was too legalistic by placing restrictions on how they use their bodies and that God only cares about the soul.

By the time I got back to the class, the students had believed the people I invited.

I needed to convince them otherwise, so I went to get two oranges. One orange was yellow, and the other was green.

I raised both oranges up in the class and asked, “Which of these two oranges is ripe?”

They all pointed at the yellow one. I asked again, “How did you know?” They said it was obvious from the outside that it was ripe on the inside.

With that, I told them, “If Christ that you claim to have on your inside is not showing on the outside, it is likely that you do not have Christ in the first place.”

Whether we like it or not, people look at your outward appearance and make conclusions about Christianity based on what they see you do with your body.

If you look like the people of the world, they will believe that you are just like them and that there is nothing special about you.

They will not listen to the gospel you are preaching if you are dressed like a harlot or a hooligan.

Don’t make someone turn away from the gospel because of your outward appearance, keep your body blameless.


Can people tell that you are born again just by looking at you

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 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Promise Keeper

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: Promise Keeper

MEMORISE: "Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; 1 have purposed it, I will also do it". Isaiah 46:11

READ: Genesis 21:1-8 (KJV)

21 And the Lord visited Sarah as he had said, and the Lord did unto Sarah as he had spoken.

2 For Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the set time of which God had spoken to him.

3 And Abraham called the name of his son that was born unto him, whom Sarah bare to him, Isaac.

4 And Abraham circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old, as God had commanded him.

5 And Abraham was an hundred years old, when his son Isaac was born unto him.

6 And Sarah said, God hath made me to laugh, so that all that hear will laugh with me.

7 And she said, Who would have said unto Abraham, that Sarah should have given children suck? for I have born him a son in his old age.

8 And the child grew, and was weaned: and Abraham made a great feast the same day that Isaac was weaned.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 5-6

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

For someone reading this, it is possible that God has promised you many great things in the past, but you have not yet seen those things manifest.

This was what happened to Abraham and Sarah.

Years before, God had spoken to Abraham, promising him that he will be a father of nations.

However, more than 25 years passed and not a single child was born to somebody who was supposed to be the father of nations.

Eventually, in Genesis 18, God showed up for him. I pray for you today, God will show up for you and give you that long-awaited miracle, in Jesus’ name.

I remember when I became the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, I did everything I knew in line with the word of God to make the church grow.

Every month, l organised a three-day seminar. I taught the Bible, preached, fasted and prayed. People would come for the programmes, and as soon as we finish, they would vanish.

When I get to the church the following Sunday, at times, the congregation will even look smaller than what we had before the programmes.

One day, some weeks before my birthday in 1986, God ended my barrenness. He asked me, “What do you want for your birthday?” and I said, “I want a miracle for every member of my congregation.” That was the beginning of the Holy Ghost Service.

Today, all that you see happening in RCCG is an example of what God can do whenever He decides it is time to fulfil His promise to you.

I pray that before the end of this year, everyone will see clearly that God is smiling on you, in Jesus’ name.

When God makes you a promise, you can rest assured that He will keep His promise. However, many people have missed out on the fulfilment of God’s promise due to a lack of faith.

If God promises you something and after waiting for a while, you begin to think that God lied to you and won’t fulfil the promise, it may never come to manifestation.

Romans 4:20 says that Abraham did not stagger at the promise of God, even after waiting for up to 25 years.

God is a promise keeper. However, if you want to see His promises concerning you fulfilled, you must accept Him as your Lord and Saviour, live holy, have faith, and wait patiently on Him.

Key Point

Trust God, He is a promise keeper. He will fulfil His promises concerning you.

HYMN 30: When We Walk With The Lord

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]

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Sunday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Give Thanks

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: Give Thanks

MEMORISE: "O give thanks unto the Lord; for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever". Psalms 136:1

READ: Psalms 100:1-5 (KJV)

1 Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.

2 Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.

3 Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.

5 For the Lord is good; his mercy is everlasting; and his truth endureth to all generations.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 3-4

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

The reason Solomon was extremely grateful to God in 2 Chronicles 1:6-12 is that he realised that he didn’t deserve to be king.

His father was an adulterer and his mother an adulteress. His father was also a murderer who murdered his mother’s first husband.

How could God pick the fruit of such a union and make him king?

Solomon indeed had every reason to be grateful.

If you look at your life closely, you will also see that you don’t deserve many of the things that God has given to you, including your life.

I think you should really give Him thanks.

When people see me dancing in agbada at least once a year to praise God in my mother tongue, many of them do not understand.

The day I asked God how He could choose the product of a sinful relationship like Solomon to be king, He also asked me, “Is your mother the first wife of your father?”

I had no more questions because, based on the circumstances surrounding my birth, I don’t deserve to be called to pastor His sheep.

I am always grateful to God because to whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48).

Even the fact that I am here in this world is something to be grateful for.

My mom had made up her mind that she wasn’t having any more children because she already had as many girls as she wanted and a boy.

However, the boy died, and people begged her to give birth again. She agreed, and I was born.

Coming from that background, and also considering all the sins I had committed before giving my life to Christ, it is a privilege that God could save a soul like mine and make me a pastor.

So, I know why I dance and sing praises to my God.

When we say, “Let us thank God,” those who feel that they deserve everything they have don’t see the importance.

For some of them, they believe God chose them because He had no choice and so, they don’t bother.

However, for some of us, we know where we are coming from and the things we survived.

I grew up amongst scorpions, snakes, and all sorts of wild animals, and was surrounded by witches, wizards, and the rest.

For me to have survived in that kind of environment, I cannot keep quiet when it is time to thank God. Will you do the same?

Action Point

Throughout today, just keep thanking God for all that He has done for you.

HYMN 18: Praise To The Lord The Almighty

1. Praise to the Lord,

the Almighty, the King of creation!

O my soul, praise Him, for He is

thy health and salvation:

Join the great throng

psaltery,organ and song

sounding in glad adoration!

2. Praise to the Lord,

who over all he gloriously reigneth:

Borne as on eagle-wings, safely

his saints, He sustaineth.

Hast thou not seen

How all thou needest hath been

Granted in what He ordaineth?

3. Praise to the Lord,

who doth prosper thy way and defend thee;

Surely his goodness and mercy

shall ever attend thee;

Ponder anew, What the Almighty can do,

Who with His love doth befriend thee

5. Praise to the Lord!

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.
