4. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 AUGUST 2021 MESSAGE
In todays Bible reading, we see a short rich republican named Zacchaeus.
He was so short that he could not see Jesus because of the crowd, until he climbed a tree.
He was physically limited by his stature; in a crowd, he would be unnoticed.
Are you swallowed up in a crowd?, Are you under-performing in your academics even after several hours of serious study?.
I decree that you will stand tall amongst others from today in the mighty name of Jesus.
To stand tall or standout, you must seek knowledge; find out what those ahead of you are doing and strive to do better.
Don’t be satisfied with little achievements because there is always room for improvement. In addition, don’t give room for discouragement from people or friends.
In 1 Samuel 17:26-28, Davids brothers tried to discourage him from staying on the battlefield but he refused to listen to them because he was sure of his capabilities.
He didn’t leave until he met the right person, King Saul, who gave him an opportunity to shine. You too can stand tall.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 AUGUST 2021 KEY POINT
To stand tall, move higher in your relationship with God.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 AUGUST 2021 HYMN
I’M PRESSING ON THE UPWARD WAY
1. I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining every day;
Still praying as I onward bound,
“Lord, plant my feet on higher ground”.
Lord, lift me up and let me stand,
By faith on heaven’s table-land;
Where love and joy and light abound,
Lord, plant my feet on higher ground.
2. My heart has no desire to stay,
Where doubts arise and fears dismay;
Though some may dwell where these
abound, my constant aim is higher ground.
3. Beyond the mist I fain would rise,
To rest beneath unclouded skies,
Above earth’s turmoil peace is found
By those who dwell on higher ground.
4. I long to scale the utmost height,
Though rough the way, and hard the fight,
My song while climbing shall resound
Lord lead me on to higher ground.
5. Lord lead me up the mountain side,
I dare not climb without my Guide;
And Heaven gained, I’ll gaze around,
With grateful heart from higher ground.
