OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 SATURDAY: BECOMING GOD’S FAVOURITE

OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 MEMORISE: As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God. Psalm 42:1 (KJV)

 

OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 BIBLE TEXT Psalm 42:1-2 (KJV)

As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.

My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?

 

Beloved, kindly share these life-changing messages, prayers, and declarations with the precious people around you. 

Daily Confession: I confess Today and everyday that I am a favored child of God, committed to intimate communion with Him, willing to pay the price of discipline and prioritize His approval over public opinion, trusting in His divine elevation and favor in every aspect of my life, in the matchless name of Jesus. Somebody shout Hallelujah!

 

OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 MESSAGE

Parents usually love their children but oftentimes, they would have favourites even among them.

They may try not to make it obvious, but they know who their favourite is.

In the same way, there are favorites in the family of God. These are people who please God in every way they can.

One of the major life ambitions of God’s favourites is to become very intimate with Him.

Whether you become a favorite of God or not is up to you; it is a matter of what you choose to love or hate.

In 1 Corinthians 9:24-27, Paul said that in a race, there are many people running, but only one winner would emerge.

The Lord wants you to be the winner. I don’t know about you, but I want to be at the forefront of this race.

I used to be a runner when I was a little younger and our coach would always tell us to make sure we came first.

To be number one, you must be willing to pay the price (Philippians 3:7-14).

The prize you receive at the end of this race is determined by how willing you are to put your body under now.

When it comes to being intimate with God, it is more about what you do in private than in public.

In Genesis 39:1-9, when Joseph was faced with tremendous pressure from his master’s wife to commit adultery, he ran away.

He was very committed to honoring God, even in private.

By the time you read Genesis 50:15-21, you see that his brothers came to bow before him.

Those who want to be intimate with God don’t go after public approval and public image; they simply do what God loves, notwithstanding what the public thinks about it.

In Daniel 1:3-8, Daniel and his friends decided not to defile themselves with the king’s meat, contrary to public opinion.

They must have looked crazy or like fanatics to some people, but they didn’t mind.

As long as they were not defiling their bodies and God was happy with them, they were satisfied.

In return, God made them the rulers of all the people when the time came.

If you are not willing to count as loss those things that should have been gain so that you can win Christ, you are not willing to become intimate with God.

 

OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 KEY POINT

Considering your priorities, can you sincerely say that God sees you as one of His favourites?

OPEN HEAVEN 11 NOVEMBER 2023 HYMN

RCCG HYMN 12: Onward Christian Soldiers!

1 Onward, Christian soldiers, 
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!
Christ, the royal Master,
leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
see his banner go!

Refrain:
Onward, Christian soldiers,
marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
going on before!

2 At the sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
on to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
at the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
loud your anthems raise!

3 Like a mighty army
moves the church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
all one body we,
One in hope and doctrine,
one in charity.

4 Onward, then, ye people,
join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
in the triumph song;
Glory, laud, and honor,
unto Christ the King;
This thro’ countless ages
men and angels sing.

5 Onward, then, ye people!
  Join our happy throng;
Blend with ours your voices
  In the triumph song.
Glory, laud and honor
  Unto Christ, the King;
This through countless ages
  Men and angels sing.

We can not be God’s favourites until we obey God,follow the examples of Jesus and do things as it is written.
Eg in Malachi 3:10 God says we should bring tithe so that there be food in his house.
Where is the food in his house?
We collect tithe but we do not obey God,we turn things around to favour us,that is evil,we must repent and obey God,hell is real.
