Open Heaven Daily Devotional 11 May 2023 MESSAGE
When I was to move into my first house at the Redemption Camp in 1985 – now known as The Open Heavens International Centre, it didn’t have any doors or windows and I wanted to move in before October 1. That weekend, we had a School of Disciples meeting and I could have easily raised the needed N50 from my students since they were more than fifty in number.
To me, however, that would have been begging. When God called me to ministry, He told me that He would be my source. I just told them, “I need a miracle”. They all prayed for me and left. The following Sunday there was this young lady who came to my office and gave me money that she had been saving so that she could travel abroad. I accepted the money, prayed for her and she left.
When I opened the envelope, it was the exact amount that I needed. One Sunday, I saw this young girl again, gorgeously dressed. She explained that she had just returned from London. Her friend’s parents took her abroad on holiday with them, as their daughter had refused to go without her. They paid all her expenses and gave her a shopping allowance.
God used that girl to meet my need, then He used her friend’s parents to meet her own need. You don’t need to calculate how God will send help to you; just tell Him what you need and trust Him. Whatsoever you may need help for right now, God will send it to you in unexpected ways, in Jesus’ name.
