OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 MAY 2023 BIBLE READING HEBREWS 11:13-16
These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
Today’s Powerful Confession: I confess today I fear the Lord and do His will. I am wise and not foolish, I understand what the will of the Lord is and I do it. And for this, the Lord reveals His secrets to me and I excel in life in Jesus’ name, Amen. Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 MAY 2023 MESSAGE
Dreams are a very important aspect of human life because they influence the height a person will reach in life. Unfortunately, some people dream small.
When I came into full-time ministry as the General Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), I was confronted with the challenge of accommodation since I had to move out of the mansion provided for me by the university I resigned from.
So, I prayed to God to give me accommodation in Mushin, Lagos, but He told me not to ask for a whole house because He would build me a city.
Since I knew His voice, I believed what He said. Today, the city He spoke about, where nothing will be lacking, is the Redemption City along Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Nigeria.
Beloved, how big is your dream? Is God in it? No matter how big your dream is, if God is in it, it will surely come to pass.
Also, if you dream of eternal life in Heaven, it will influence your actions daily.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 23 MAY 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.
