OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 21 FEBRUARY 2024 BIBLE TEXT: Psalms 103:1-5

[1](A Psalm of David.) Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
[2]Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
[3]Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
[4]Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
[5]Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

 

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 21 FEBRUARY 2024 MESSAGE

When I examine the nature of human beings, I can’t but marvel at the wonders of God and how He made everyone unique with different temperaments.
1 Corinthians 12 mentions different gifts that we operate in as God’s children, while other gifts include the gifts of giving and help.
While some people find it difficult to give or to help someone in need, others do it effortlessly because that is how they are wired.
The same goes for the gift of gratitude, which I noticed in the life of King David.
Right from his teenage years, while rearing his father’s sheep, he expressed constant gratitude to God everywhere he went.
When the Ark of Covenant was brought into Jerusalem, he danced so much that his wife mocked him for dancing shamelessly in front of the people, however, David counted it as an honour to God.
No wonder God had mercy on him and referred to him as ‘a man after my heart.’
Being grateful from a young age is an advantage because elders in Yoruba land say, “When a fellow doesn’t give thanks for the goodness done to him yesterday, it is synonymous with robbery.”
Have you been robbing God and people by failing to show gratitude?

HYMN 11: OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 21 FEBRUARY 2024 

O LORD MY GOD, WHEN AM IN AWESOME WONDER

1. O lord my God!
When am in awesome wonder,
consider all
The worlds thy hands hath made
I see the stars,
I heard the rolling thunder
Thy pow’r thro’ out
The universe displayed
CHORUS
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
Then sing my soul,
My savior God to thee;
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!
2. Then through the woods
And forest glads I wander,
And hear the birds
Sing sweetly in the tress;
When I look down
From lofty mountain grandeur
And hear the brook
And feel the gentle breeze;
3. And when I think
That God, His Son not sparing
Sent Him to die
I scare can take it in;
That on the cross,
My burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died
To take away my sin.
4. When Christ shall come
With shout of acclamation
And take me home,
What joy shall fill my heart!
Then I shall bow
In humble adoration
And there proclaim,
My God how great Thou art!
