Open Heaven Daily Devotional 31 March 2023 MESSAGE
When you read the Letters to the Churches in the book of Revelation, you would realise that everything that we Christians do here on earth is being observed and recorded in heaven – every alt: single thing.
There was once a lady who agreed to go with her Pastor to a hotel to commit fornication. Before they went into the room, they looked left and right to be sure that no one could see them going in. After they got inside, the lady became uncomfortable and told the Pastor, “We looked left and right to be sure no one was looking at us, but we did not look up; God can see us”. (2 Chronicles 16:9) says that God’s eyes are going to and fro all over the earth.
When temptations come your way, God is watching you closely to see if you will fall or not. In fact, God and the devil are watching closely. If you fall, then the devil will go boasting to God that he won over you. God forbid that in Jesus’ name. If however, you overcome the temptation, then God will be the one boasting that you are His true child.
In Job 19:25-27, Job said it didn’t matter what was happening; his Redeemer was still alive. God must have said to the devil, “Did you hear that?” That is why you must fight every temptation to ensure that you win at the end of the day.
I don’t know about you, but I will never let the devil use me as an object to boast before God. Imagine the joy in heaven when Job finally overcame his temptations.
The good thing about God seeing everything we do is that when we do good, He sees it and will reward everyone accordingly. If you have been doing good and it looks like no one is noticing, God can see you and in good time, He will reward you.
Galatians 6:9 says, And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. The moment someone stops doing good and starts sinning, all the good that he or she had done in the past will not be accounted for again (Ezekiel 18:24). Beloved, what is God recording about you right now?
Hymn 9 Immortal, Invisible God Only Wise
IMMORTAL, INVISIBLE, GOD ONLY WISE
1. Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
2. Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, thou rulest in might!
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above,
Thy cloud which are fountains of goodness and love.
3. To all life thou givest to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish but nought changeth Thee.
4. Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render; O help us to see;
‘Tis only the splendour of light hideth Thee.
