Open Heaven 9 December 2019 Memorise: Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’S said? Let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. Exodus 32:26
Read: Hebrews 11:24-26 Open Heaven 9 December 2019
24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

Message: – Open Heaven 9 December 2019 Monday Daily
A decision is a conclusion or resolution reached after due
consideration of a subject matter. Making decision is a routine process that is
of vital importance of all human endeavours. An individual’s level of success
and achievements are usually the product of past decisions and choices. Human
beings make decisions and personal choices concerning what to eat, where to go,
what to wear and who to relate with on a daily basis. We also make decisions
based on our personal preference in the area of religion, education, vocation,
fashion and marriage. However, life often leads us to a point of decision where
the choices before us have the potential of changing the course of our lives
permanently for good or bad.
How a person handles such turning-point decisions goes a
long way in determining the fulfilment of his or her destiny in life. Abraham’s
response to God’s demand to offer his only son as burnt offering determined the
course of his life (Genesis 22:2). As a result of his obedience, Abraham
received an irreversible blessing of eternal value (Genesis 22:16-17). Ruth
also reached a point where she needed to make a critical decision, and the
decision she took changed the course of her life for good forever. She took a
great decision to abandon her home in pursuit of the true God, saying in Ruth
“…Intreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whiter thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God:”

Through this decision, she became an ancestor of our Lord
Jesus Christ. As believers in Christ, we are privileged to have insight into
God’s truth, as recorded in Scriptures or received through the revelation of
the Holy Spirit. We must therefore be careful not to resist God’s will or rebel
against His commandments in any way. Many people resist God’s truth because of
their own pride and self-centeredness.
Some claim to be born again, but their true colour becomes exposed by their refusal to give up worldly pleasures and those things that are socially acceptable but contrary to God’s word. There are others still who appear to be committed to God, but their heart is lured away from the ideals of Jesus Christ by anxieties, ambition and the gods of money, position and power.
The fact remains that God does not force commitment on anyone; we have the right to count the cost commitment on anyone; we have the right to count the cost and carefully consider the implications before committing ourselves to Him in any way. A person’s decision to become born again is a solemn undertaking to obey God’s word, and it is a life-long commitment of total submission to the will of God in holiness. I decree that as you endeavour to walk in obedience to God, the Lord will manifest His power in every area of your life and cause your blessings to overflow in Jesus’ Name.
