Open Heaven Friday 19th February 2021 Devotional Guide By Pastor E.A Adeboye

TOPIC: How Desperate Are You?

 

MEMORISE:

“And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.” – (Genesis 32:26)

 

READ: Genesis 32:24-30 (KJV)

24. And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.

 

25. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.

 

26. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.

 

27. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.

 

28. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel; for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.

 

29. And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.

 

30. And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel; for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

There are many blessings that have been prepared for God’s children, but many do not receive them because they are not just desperate enough. In our Bible reading for today, Jacob wrestled with God because he was desperate for a blessing. Mark 2:4-5 records that the paralysed man was healed because he and his friends were desperate for his healing. I tell you, if only you can be desperate, that issue you have been waiting on God for could have been history by now.

 

Unfortunately, some Christians take unpleasant situations as their fate. That shouldn’t be! There is nothing you cannot change it if you approach God desperately.

 

There was a festival of arts in one of the Northern states in Nigeria some years ago and some of the people who went from the South were involved in a fatal accident on their way back. There was a young man – a Christian who was also involved in the accident. He was among the few survivors but was in a coma for days. Once in a while, he would come out of the coma and shout just one word: “Jesus”, then go back into unconsciousness. One day, he came up again and said “Jesus”, then opened his eyes and continued, “Death, you are not going to have me; I refuse to die.” I am sure he was at the verge of dying, but he fought and overcame. The forces of darkness and hell could not hold him down because he held desperately unto Jesus.

 

Are you going to let the devil hold you down in that situation? Are you going to give up hope and let the devil have his way? You must be desperate in your prayers today. You must tell the devil “No way! I am not going to let you have the last say over this matter”.

 

Now, go ahead and pray to God concerning that stubborn matter. Tell Him that you will not rest until He has answered you. Keep calling the name of Jesus concerning that situation. Today is your day of freedom! If you don’t have anything to pray about, pray for someone else, or you can pray for me.

 

ACTION POINT:

Pray desperately today about that issue that has lingered for too long. I join my faith with yours and decree that your answers will come speedily in the name of Jesus.

 

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:

Ephesians 1-3

 

HYMNAL:

HYMN 18 – PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOUR

 

1. Pass me not, O gentle Saviour,

Hear my humble cry;

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.

 

REFRAIN:

Saviour, Saviour,

Hear my humble cry;

While on others Thou art calling,

Do not pass me by.

 

2. Let me, at Thy throne of mercy

Find a sweet relief;

Kneeling there in deep contrition,

Help my unbelief.

 

3. Trusting only in Thy merit,

Would I seek Thy face;

Heal my wounded, broken spirit,

Save me by Thy grace.

 

4. Thou, the spring of all my comfort,

More than life to me,

Whom have I on earth beside Thee?

Whom in heaven but Thee?

Highly Exalted by Naffymar

Published

on

UK based urban gospel artist, producer and songwriter Naffymar, is out with a spanking new record titled “Highly Exalted”.
Coming three months after the release of her chart breaking House of God EP with songs that have now become anthems for Christian celebrations, the Music Graduate shows her versatility in this worship ballad.

With the synergy of South African based producer Cliff M and Nigeria’s mix and master engineer Osadebey, Naffymar seems to have cracked the code to leave listeners in total surrender in worship to God.

Lyrics
Oh Oh Oh
Oh oh oh
I have seen your glory
Beholding your face
Heaven and nations bow
At the mention of your name
You are great and mighty
Holy God
Heaven and nations bow

Reading 1, Acts 3:1-10
Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9
Gospel, Luke 24:13-35

Reading 1, Acts 3:1-10

1 Once, when Peter and John were going up to the Temple for the prayers at the ninth hour,

2 it happened that there was a man being carried along. He was a cripple from birth; and they used to put him down every day near the Temple entrance called the Beautiful Gate so that he could beg from the people going in.

3 When this man saw Peter and John on their way into the Temple he begged from them.

4 Peter, and John too, looked straight at him and said, ‘Look at us.’

5 He turned to them expectantly, hoping to get something from them,

6 but Peter said, ‘I have neither silver nor gold, but I will give you what I have: in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, walk!’

7 Then he took him by the right hand and helped him to stand up. Instantly his feet and ankles became firm

8 he jumped up, stood, and began to walk, and he went with them into the Temple, walking and jumping and praising God.

9 Everyone could see him walking and praising God,

10 and they recognised him as the man who used to sit begging at the Beautiful Gate of the Temple. They were all astonished and perplexed at what had happened to him.

Catholic Daily Mass Reading Wednesday 7th April 2021 Online

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 105:1-2, 3-4, 6-7, 8-9
1 Alleluia! Give thanks to Yahweh, call on his name, proclaim his deeds to the peoples!

2 Sing to him, make music for him, recount all his wonders!

3 Glory in his holy name, let the hearts that seek Yahweh rejoice!

4 Seek Yahweh and his strength, tirelessly seek his presence!

6 Stock of Abraham, his servant, children of Jacob whom he chose!

7 He is Yahweh our God, his judgements touch the whole world.

8 He remembers his covenant for ever, the promise he laid down for a thousand generations,

9 which he concluded with Abraham, the oath he swore to Isaac.

Gospel, Luke 24:13-35
13 Now that very same day, two of them were on their way to a village called Emmaus, seven miles from Jerusalem,

14 and they were talking together about all that had happened.

15 And it happened that as they were talking together and discussing it, Jesus himself came up and walked by their side;

16 but their eyes were prevented from recognising him.

17 He said to them, ‘What are all these things that you are discussing as you walk along?’ They stopped, their faces downcast.

18 Then one of them, called Cleopas, answered him, ‘You must be the only person staying in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have been happening there these last few days.’

19 He asked, ‘What things?’ They answered, ‘All about Jesus of Nazareth, who showed himself a prophet powerful in action and speech before God and the whole people;

20 and how our chief priests and our leaders handed him over to be sentenced to death, and had him crucified.

21 Our own hope had been that he would be the one to set Israel free. And this is not all: two whole days have now gone by since it all happened;

22 and some women from our group have astounded us: they went to the tomb in the early morning,

23 and when they could not find the body, they came back to tell us they had seen a vision of angels who declared he was alive.

24 Some of our friends went to the tomb and found everything exactly as the women had reported, but of him they saw nothing.’

25 Then he said to them, ‘You foolish men! So slow to believe all that the prophets have said!

26 Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer before entering into his glory?’

27 Then, starting with Moses and going through all the prophets, he explained to them the passages throughout the scriptures that were about himself.

28 When they drew near to the village to which they were going, he made as if to go on;

29 but they pressed him to stay with them saying, ‘It is nearly evening, and the day is almost over.’ So he went in to stay with them.

30 Now while he was with them at table, he took the bread and said the blessing; then he broke it and handed it to them.

31 And their eyes were opened and they recognised him; but he had vanished from their sight.

32 Then they said to each other, ‘Did not our hearts burn within us as he talked to us on the road and explained the scriptures to us?’

33 They set out that instant and returned to Jerusalem. There they found the Eleven assembled together with their companions,

34 who said to them, ‘The Lord has indeed risen and has appeared to Simon.’

35 Then they told their story of what had happened on the road and how they had recognised him at the breaking of bread.
