OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 NOVEMBER 2022 MESSAGE
God designed man for greatness this is evident from the creation. He made man in His image and gave him dominion over every other thing He created. Although, through disobedience, Adam and Eve disrupted Gods plan, the redeeming power of Christ brought us back on track.
Every child of God is created to be great. This therefore implies that greatness cannot be achieved without God. Any attempt to be great through dubious means will only end in futility and if one eventually acquires wealth, the fellow would only be wealthy and not great because wealth does not amount to greatness.
Greatness is making impact that transcends generations such that even after the fellow has passed on, people would still make reference in a positive way to him/her.
For instance, today, we still talk about Father Abraham whom God made exceedingly great. God has called you out of darkness into His marvellous light so that you can showcase greatness (1 Peter 2:9). Don’t entangle yourself with the unfruitful works of darkness. Stay with God, obey Him and watch Him make you great.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 NOVEMBER 2022 ACTION POINT
Any attempt to be great outside God will not end in greatness.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 NOVEMBER 2022 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
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.
