Open Heaven 23 November 2017 Daily Devotional Message With Hymn

There is a time to work and a time for rest. Everyone who labours very hard always looks forward to a time of rest. Rest is so crucial that even God Himself rested after spending six days creating the heavens and the earth.

It is therefore not a mistake that God programmed sleep into our body system. He knows that after we have worked hard and are tired, we would need to rest the body in order to get back on our feet.

Psalm 127:2 says, It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep Good sleep is indeed a blessing from God. However, rest for the body is not as important as the rest needed by the soul.

If your mind is seriously troubled over an issue, even when you lie down on your bed, you will be unable to sleep. The only place to find rest for your soul is in Christ. No wonder He made a call for you to enter into His rest in Matthew 11:28-30.

Have you been worried or troubled lately? Receive rest today in Jesus’ Name!

“Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings Isaiah 3:10 One major reason why you as a true believer should
be at rest is because of God’s promises.

According to our Bible reading, the promises of our God are very reliable. Romans 3:4 says that even if all men are liars, this cannot compel our God to be a liar like them; He will always remain true.

Therefore, if He says your tomorrow will be alright, take it as a report card that you are getting even before sitting for the examination. If He said it, He will surely do it. God’s word has integrity. Based on His words that cannot fa
I know my tomorrow will be alright.

Irrespective of the raging storm, l will simply rest in Him. Beloved, let Jesus Christ be the One you lean on. Who or what you lean upon in the time of trouble is very important.

If you lean on human beings, they will most likely compound your situation because every human being is prone to failure due to so many factors within and outside their control.

In contrast, if you lean on the Eternal Rock of Ages, you can be assured of true rest, joy and peace.

Open Heaven 23 November 2017 Hymn: Sing Hymn 2


What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,
O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged;
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

we find a friend faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

Are we weak and heavy laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge-
Take it to the Lord in prayer!

Do your friends despise, forsake you?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In his arms he’ll take and shield you;
You wilt find a solace there.
