Obedience That Opens Heaven

Thursday 8th November 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- 1 Kings 17:1-24

Topic:- Obedience That Opens Heaven

Text:- Isaiah 1:19

As there is partial obedience, [which I know in God’s standard, it is not obedience at all]. See King Saul as a case study in I Samuel 15:1-28.

There was total obedience in which God delights. The obedience of Elijah made him to pray ceaselessly for rain to cease. Thereby, his obedience closed heaven to rain for complete 3½ years, because the Isrealites and King Ahab had disobeyed God. If you keep on disobeying God, note for sure, the heaven will close against you. See I King 17:1-3.
As Elijah kept obeying the Lord, God made his own heaven to open to the point that ravens, [bird that is very stingy among birds that can’t take care of their little ones], fed him till the brook of Cherith dried up. While others were enduring hardship and famine, Elijah was enjoying the blessings of God and open heaven. See I Kings 17:4-7.
Elijah continued to enjoy open heaven just because he obeyed God. Unbelieveable! It was a widow of Zarephath, [that she too obeyed God, and her own heaven opened] that she came to, to the rescue of Elijah for his own heaven to continually open. See Kings 17:8-16.
Thank God for Elijah’s obedience that also led to the said widow’s heaven never to close, because of her dead son that was later raised up miraculously just because of her obedience that opened her heavens. See I Kings 17:17-24.
Your heaven might have been closed, wait on God and obey Him, He will make your heaven to be opened continually.

Prayer Points:-
1. Henceforth I declare I will change in obeying the Lord absolutely, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. I command all my closed heaven to be open henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Heaven! Open for me henceforth by fire with all the fruitfulness of God,
4. Oh Lord God, rain upon me, Your morning rain, in the name of Jesus Christ.

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
