OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JULY 2021 BIBLE READING GENESIS 37:5-10
5. And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
6. And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed:
7. For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
8. And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words.
9. And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
10. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth?

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JULY 2021 MESSAGE
Joseph is a Biblical character that we can learn a lot of lessons from.
In the Bible passage for today, we can see that Joseph had a dream which he told to his siblings and parents.
If you read the chapter further, you will realise that telling his dreams to his siblings put him in trouble.
However, Joseph had a vision; he knew what he’d become in life. This knowledge kept him focused even as a slave in Potiphar’s house.
My child, every man has a purpose in life, you are not by accident, there is a reason you are on earth.
Do you know your purpose in life?, Do you have a vision?, Do you have a picture in your mind of what you want to become?.
If you don’t, you can ask God to show you today. After He shows you, write it down, dream about it.
Like Joseph, see yourself living that dream. Think about it and work towards it.
lf for instance, God has revealed that you would be the doctor that would find a cure to cancer, then you need to focus on science subjects/courses and study hard.
Work towards your dream, don’t just dream.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 JULY 2021 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 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.
