OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 MAY 2023 WEDNESDAY: DANGERS OF BAD HABITS
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 MAY 2023 MEMORIZE: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 MAY 2023 BIBLE READING Mark 7:20-23
And he said, That which cometh out of the man, that defileth the man.
For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders,
Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness:
All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.
God wants you to rest.
Good morning beloved, read and share this much-needed message with your loved ones. God Bless you!
Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today that I enjoy God’s rest which is divinely ordained, refreshing, and rewarding. I ensure I incorporate rest into my schedule no matter how tight it may be. I do not work tirelessly without rest. I am more productive because as I am diligent, I also rest adequately in Jesus’ name, Amen. Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 MAY 2023 MESSAGE
Before a bad habit is formed, it starts with thoughts and suggestions that seem harmless.
Is there a character flaw that people around you complain about? You need to check it and make amends before it destroys you.
In today’s Bible reading, Jesus made it clear that a person is defiled by what comes from within them. This is equally true for bad habits.
As a child of God, do not let your habits bring reproach to God. Bad habits can ruin a person’s life and prevent him/her from achieving God’s plan and purpose as he/she grows.
For example, Samson loved women despite his parents’ warnings: he fell for a strange woman who discovered the secret of his strength and handed him over to the enemies. He eventually died with them.
Another example is Judas, who loved money too much. His love for it made Him betray His Master, and his end was terrible.
Watch that bad habit so that it will not destroy your destiny.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 MAY 2023 HYMN
HYMN 8 – FORTH IN YOUR NAME, O LORD, I GO,
1. Forth in your name, O Lord, I go,
My daily labor to pursue,
You only, Lord, resolved to know
In all I think or speak or do.
2. The task your wisdom has assigned
Here let me cheerfully fulfill;
In all my work your presence find,
And prove your good and perfect will.
3. You may I set at my right hand,
Whose eyes my inmost secrets view,
And labor on at your command
And offer all my work to you.
4. Help me to bear your easy yoke
In ev’ry moment watch and pray,
And still to things eternal look
And hasten to that glorious day.
5. Then with delight may I employ
All that your bounteous grace has given,
And run my earthly course with joy,
And closely walk with you in heaven.
