Message:- Open Heaven 5 August 2019 Monday Daily Devotional
As children of the Most High, we need a good understanding
of the times and seasons we live in as an important part of enjoying our
relationship with God, and to make us successful in our endeavours in this
world. We must not ignore the Holy Spirit’s teaching in Ecclesiastes 3:1 which
“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”
It is clear from this verse that our God is a God of plan and purpose who in His infinite wisdom has predetermined the times and seasons to activate His plan and fulfil His purpose. Today’s memory verse is very insightful in this regard. It is amazing that the words God spoke to Noah so many years ago are still relevant to us in this generation. We understand from this verse that even though we should be heaven-minded, as this world is not our home, we must also be active and productive as along as we remain in this world.
As profitable stewards of the resources of God’s kingdom, we must prepare for every season and put in our very best to make the most pf every opportunity God gives to us. We must not occupy the back seat in the affairs of this world or accept servitude and poverty as our lot. We must refuse unfavourable circumstances and reject mediocrity disguised as spirituality. I pray that the Almighty God will give you perfect understanding of the times and seasons He makes available to you in Jesus’ Name.

Children of God need to know that the same God who commanded us to be sober, vigilant and to watch carefully for the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ also instructed us to occupy till He returns (Luke 19:13). Therefore, as we continue to say “Come, Lord Jesus” and intensify our efforts to take His gospel to every corner of the earth, we must also continue to prosper and multiply in all aspects of life. We must continue in our efforts to dominate our world and subdue it for the Almighty God. Isaiah 49:8 says:
“Thus saith the LORD, in an acceptable time have I heard thee, and in a day of salvation have I helped thee: and I will preserve thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, to establish the earth, to cause to inherit the desolate heritages;”
I pray that your understanding will become open to realise
that this is the acceptable time and season that our God in His wisdom has set
to favour His children. Therefore, to as many as are determined to do exploits
for God, I say the Lord will preserve you, and all your efforts to win souls
for Christ will be richly rewarded. God will empower you to be established and
cause you to inherit the desolate heritage of the earth, in the mighty Name of
