TOPIC: Power To Prosper

MEMORISE: "But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18

READ: Deuteronomy 8:6-18 (KJV)

6 Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

7 For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;

Open Heaven For Today 2024 – Open Heavens 24 May

8 A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey;

9 A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass.

10 When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee.

11 Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day:

12 Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein;

13 And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;

14 Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage;

15 Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint;

16 Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;

17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.

18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 11-13

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

In today’s memory verse, the Lord reveals Himself as the source of power for prosperity.

It is the blessing of the Lord that gives riches without any sorrow (Proverbs 10:22).

Those who desire to prosper without sorrow will therefore pay attention to the path of prosperity He has set out in His word.

Today’s Bible reading also contains truths from God’s word that can deliver any soul from the bondage of poverty.

Your Father in heaven wants you to prosper greatly, and so, we will examine a few of these truths today.

Firstly, the Lord told the children of Israel that the land He was giving them was being taken care of by Him from heaven.

In other words, the land would yield its best to them because He was in charge of it, not because of their own efforts.

To emphasize this, the Lord described the land to them further, saying in Deuteronomy 11:12: A land which the LORD thy God careth for: the eyes of the LORD thy God are always upon it, from the beginning of the year even unto the end of the year.

Therefore, to prosper in this world, you need to look away from the present economic situation around you and focus on the economy of heaven that is managed all year round by the Almighty Himself.

For the economy of your life to respond to the laws of heaven, you must be subject to the laws of heaven.

Many people get excited about God’s promises but fail to do their part, therefore, they do not experience the fulfilment of the promises.

God gives those who acknowledge Him as their Creator, Redeemer, and Lord the power to prosper. Do you regard God as your Creator?

Do you honour Jesus Christ as your Redeemer, or do you take His death for granted by going back to sin even though you have been saved?

For God to prosper you, you must honour Him as God indeed.

Today, He is asking you the same question He asked the Israelites in Malachi 1:6: A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear?

If you truly desire the power to prosper from God, you must ensure that your life honours Him.

You must also ensure that you fear Him and love Him with all your heart, soul and mind (Matthew 22:37).

Prayer Point

Father, give me the power to prosper indeed, in Jesus’ name.

HYMN 26:  There Shall Be Showers of Blessing

1 There shall be showers of blessing:

This is the promise of love;

There shall be seasons refreshing,

Sent from the Saviour above.


Showers of blessing,

Showers of blessing we need;

Mercy drops round us are falling,

But for the showers we plead.

2 There shall be showers of blessing,

Precious reviving again;

Over the hills and the valleys,

Sound of abundance of rain.

3 There shall be showers of blessing:

Send them upon us, O Lord!

Grant to us now a refreshing;

Come, and now honour Thy Word.

4 There shall be showers of blessing,

Oh, that to-day they might fall,

Now, as to God, we’re confessing.

Now as on Jesus we call!

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Thursday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – The Ever-Present Help

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: The Ever-Present Help

MEMORISE: "But the salvation of the righteous is of the LORD: he is their strength in the time of trouble". Psalms 37:39

READ: Psalms 46:1-7(KJV)

1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea;

3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah.

4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High.

5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early.

6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted.

7 The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 11-13

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Many children of God do not fully comprehend the fact that our God is Omnipresent.

When you really understand this truth, your heart will be filled with resounding joy, irrespective of whatever situation you might be going through.

In Psalms 46:1, the psalmist revealed Him to us as the Present Help.

To reassure us of this, God spoke to us through His prophet in Isaiah 43:2, saying:

When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

To further convince us beyond any shadow of doubt, God manifested Himself in the flesh and said to us in Matthew 28:20: …lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

How comforting and encouraging this is.

No wonder Paul was able to say in Romans 8:31: What shall we then say to these things?

If God be for us, who can be against us?

The reason no one can be against you is that the presence of God is always there to chase any kind of danger and shame away from you.

It was the Present Help who saved me from the financial embarrassment of not having enough to feed the crowd that came for one of our conventions.

My wife came to me asking for additional money to keep feeding the crowd when the convention was just halfway through.

I did not have any money, but the Lord showed up in His usual way of proving Himself mighty in my life.

He sent people to me who met this need, and in the end, we had more than enough to feed the crowd.

Another time, I was almost stranded during one of my trips to a foreign country because my flight was delayed for one day, and I had spent all the money with me.

I prayed to the Present Help, and before I went to bed that night, I had more than enough for the rest of my trip.

In today’s Bible reading, you are encouraged to be of good courage because God is with you in spite of the enemy’s plans to harm you (1 Peter 5:8).

Beloved, to enjoy this divine comprehensive insurance, you need to belong to the family of the Present Help.

Give your life to Him and make a commitment to love what He loves and hate what He hates.

You will begin to experience His presence wherever you go.

Prayer Point

Father, thank you for always being with me. I am confident because you are always present with me.

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 Tuesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – What Is Your Focus?

TOPIC: What Is Your Focus?

MEMORISE: "Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. Colossians 3:2

READ: Colossians 3:1-4 (KJV)

1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.

2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.

3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

4 When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 8-10

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

From my experience as a lecturer before going into full-time ministry, I know that in a class, not everyone’s focus is on understanding what is being taught.

Some students are focused on the teacher’s clothes, some on how he talks, others on impressing other students, and so on.

What is worthy of note is that those who focus on less important things lose a whole lot in the end.

This same thing plays out in God’s kingdom; many Christians do not focus on the right things.

All some Christians want from God is a new car, a new house, a promotion and so on.

I pity such Christians because they might get what they are focused on but lose out on the more important things they have ignored.

Jesus Christ said that you should seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all other things shall be added to you (Matthew 6:33).

In other words, if you just focus on making it to heaven by being righteous here on earth, cars, houses and other material things will automatically come your way.

I am a living testimony of what Jesus said in this verse of Scripture.

I set my focus on the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and now, I can’t count how many of these other things I have.

The best part is that I am also on my way to heaven.

Why focus on things that are temporary instead of things that are eternal? Focus on the eternal things, and the temporary things will follow.

Many people never reach the heights that God has ordained for them because somewhere along the line, they take their focus away from heaven and start pursuing material things.

Their prayers change from, “Lord, help me to love You more” to “Lord, give me this and that.”

You need to remember that when the roll is called up yonder, none of these things will matter anymore.

Ask anyone who has had a near-death experience, and they will tell you that material things, as flashy as they may seem, are not worth all the attention given to them.

From now on, make Paul’s admonition in 2 Corinthians 4:18 your lifestyle:

While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.


Search your heart; what really are you focused on?

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.

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Tuesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Love Your Enemies

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: Love Your Enemies

MEMORISE: "But love your enemies, and do good and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest: for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil". Luke 6:35

READ: Proverbs 25:21-22(KJV)

21 If thine enemy be hungry, give him bread to eat; and if he be thirsty, give him water to drink:

22 For thou shalt heap coals of fire upon his head, and the Lord shall reward thee.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 4-7

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

The most difficult instruction Jesus Christ gave to His disciples is probably what we have in today’s memory verse.

He wants us to love our enemies if we are to be genuine children of God. What are we to do about this seemingly difficult command?

Firstly, you should note that His commands are not grievous (1 John 5:3).

Also, when you consider the benefits of being a child of God, you will realise that what the Lord commands is just a little price to pay.

Amazed by these benefits, John the Apostle wrote in 1 John 3:1:

Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God:

The commandment of the Lord to love your enemies is not just a New Testament doctrine. God commands us to do so because He is love Himself

(1 John 4:7). He loved us even when we were in His enemy’s camp as sinners (Romans 5:8), and since He has commanded us to be perfect even as He is (Matthew 5:48), it means that we have to be like Him in all things (Ephesians 5:1), even in loving our enemies.

Why is it so important to God that you love your enemies?

One reason is that it practically reflects the true nature of your Father, showing Him to be different from what the devil portrays Him to be (Genesis 3:1-5).

When unbelievers experience such uncommon love from you, they are convinced beyond reasonable doubt that your God is good.

Many people testify that they gave their lives to Christ because of the benevolent acts of Christians.

Your perceived enemies today may be your best Christian brothers and sisters tomorrow if only you will heed the Lord’s instruction to love them.

Through your love, their wickedness will melt away. One of my relatives, who was an idol worshipper and was well known for his wickedness, decided to follow me to church when he experienced the goodness of the Lord flowing through me into his life.

When he was confronted by others as to why he abandoned his deity and foolishly followed me to serve the Lord, he confessed that he was left with no other option but to join me in serving Jesus Christ because of the love I had shown him.

He asked those questioning his decision, “Can’t you see how my life has been spiritually and materially transformed?”

Beloved, be good to your enemies and never repay them with evil.

Action Point

Love those that hate you

HYMN 20:  Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus

1 Stand up! stand up for Jesus!

Ye soldiers of the cross;

Lift high His royal banner,

It must not suffer loss:

From vict’ry unto vict’ry

His army shall He lead,

Till every foe is vanquished

And Christ is Lord indeed.

2 Stand up! stand up for Jesus!

The trumpet call obey;

Forth to the mighty conflict

In this His glorious day.

Ye that are men, now serve Him

Against unnumbered foes;

Let courage rise with danger.

And strength to strength oppose.

3 Stand up! stand up for Jesus!

Stand in His strength alone;

The arm of flesh will fail you;

Ye dare not trust your own.

Put on the Gospel armor,

And, watching unto prayer,

Where duty calls, or danger,

Be never wanting there.

4 Stand up! stand up for Jesus!

The strife will not be long:

This day the noise of battle,

The next the victor’s song;

To him that overcometh

A crown of life shall be;

He, with the King of glory,

Shall reign eternally.

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – He That Hath Clean Hands

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: He That Hath Clean Hands

MEMORISE: "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me." Psalms 66:18

READ: Psalms 24:3-6 (KJV)

3 Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place?

4 He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

6 This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Nehemiah 1-3

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

It takes clean hands to ascend to the hill of the Most High God and receive from Him. Isaiah 59:1-2 says:

Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

When you ask God for something, and He does not give it to you, please check your life first before you start complaining. Are your hands clean? Are you living holy? The Bible says that if you are not living holy, you are at such a distance from God that He cannot even hear your prayers.

Because people who are living in sin are far away from Him, He will not hear them. God hates sin and cannot come close to sin at all. If you want anything from Him, stay away from sin.

Some people feel that they can force God to do things for them. Since they do not want to stop their sinful lifestyles and also know that God will not hear their prayers, they will seek an anointed man of God to pray for them. They believe that God will answer the prayers of the anointed man of God.

Several times, I have prayed for people for healings, deliverance, and breakthroughs without results. On several occasions, I have cried to God, “What is going on? This fellow is your child, why are you not answering my prayers?” A lot of times, God will say, “You don’t know the whole story.”

It doesn’t matter how anointed a man of God is, God cannot be compelled to listen to his prayers over sinners.

My Father in the Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi, used to say that it is what a father has that he will use to take care of his children. If God is your father, He will take care of you with His goodness. However, if your father is the devil, he will take care of you with the evil that surrounds him. If you want the blessings of God, ensure that you surrender your life to Him in totality and live holy.

The Bible says that without holiness, no one can see God (Hebrews 12:14), so if you truly want to abide in His presence and experience His abundant goodness, holiness must be your lifestyle.


Are your hands clean?

HYMN 9:  There Is A Fountain Fill'd With Blood

1 There is a fountain filled with blood

Drawn from Immanuel’s veins;

And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,

Lose all their guilty stains:

 Lose all their guilty stains,

 Lose all their guilty stains;

And sinners, plunged beneath that flood,

Lose all their guilty stains.

2 The dying thief rejoiced to see

That fountain in his day;

And there may I, though vile as he,

Wash all my sins away:

Wash all my sins away,

Wash all my sins away;

And there may I, though vile as he,

Wash all my sins away.

3 Dear dying Lamb, Thy precious blood

Shall never lose its power,

Till all the ransomed ones of God

Be saved, to sin no more:

Be saved, to sin no more,

Be saved, to sin no more;

Till all the ransomed ones of God,

Be saved to sin no more.

4 E’er since by faith I saw the stream

Thy flowing wounds supply,

Redeeming love has been my theme,

 And shall be till I die:

 And shall be till I die,

 And shall be till I die;

Redeeming love has been my theme,

And shall be till I die.

5 When this poor lisping, stammering tongue

Lies silent in the grave,

Then in a nobler, sweeter song,

I’ll sing Thy power to save:

I’ll sing Thy power to save,

I’ll sing Thy power to save;

Then in a nobler, sweeter song,

I’ll sing Thy power to save.
