OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 OCTOBER 2023 MESSAGE
In any aspect of life, everyone isat one level or the other. It doesn’t matter where you are, there is a higher level you can get to.
Moving from one level to the other involves three possibilities: One, you want to move to the next level unassisted. Two, you want to move to the next level with assistance.
Three, you are trying to move to the next level but are faced with difficulties. It is easier to move to the next level of your Iife when you have the Lord Jesus Christ as your Ally.
Similarly, there are also varying levels of victory, such as victory after a fight, victory without a fight and victory when the enemy miraculously disappears.
There is also a kind of victory recorded in Psalm 23:5: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”
There is nothing as glorious as rejoicing in the presence of one’s enemies.
Beloved, there is no height you want to attain in life that God cannot make happen. God’s plans for you are great. Please stay on the path of righteousness.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 OCTOBER 2023 ACTION POINT
Think of the level you want to attain and then call on the name of Jesus for divine assistance.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 17 OCTOBER 2023 HYMN
HYMN 6: I’M PRESSING ON THE UPWARD WAY
1. I’m pressing on the upward way,
New heights I’m gaining everyday;
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.
