OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 OCTOBER 2023 BIBLE READING 2 CHRONICLES 32:7-8
Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:
With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 OCTOBER 2023 MESSAGE
Where are many reasons why we cannot afford to be afraid of people. In today’s memory verse, Moses, the servant of God encouraged the children of Israel to be of good courage and to not be afraid of their enemies.
Proverbs 29:25 says: “The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.”*
Anyone who wants to represent God in this world must be courageous, or else he/she would make a mess of his/her divine assignment, as in the case of King Saul.
Another reason we should not be afraid of any man or thing is that God is with us, as epitomized in His name, Emmanuel.
He Himself said, “…I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20). Never cast away your confidence by giving in to fear.
Beloved, I encourage you not to give fear a chance in your life. Be strong and courageous in whatever situation you may find yourself in, and God will be with you – body, soul and spirit, in Jesus’ name.

Father, banish the spirit of fear from my life in Jesus’ name.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 11 OCTOBER 2023 HYMN
HYMN 18 – WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD
1. When we walk with the Lord,
In the light of His word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear,
Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss,
Not a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey
4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows
And the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.
