OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 30 AUGUST 2023 BIBLE READING ISAIAH 60:1-2
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Daily Confession for Teens: I confess that I am a vessel of growth and transformation. Each day, I am empowered by the Holy Spirit to align my actions with my faith, actively pursuing spiritual maturity through prayer, study of God’s Word, and deeds of love and service. I take my place in the Kingdom of God, ready to do exploits and glorify His name, in the mighty name of Jesus. Hallelujah!
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 30 AUGUST 2023 MESSAGE
After receiving the gift of salvation, many Christians still don’t take their place in the Kingdom of God.
They remain at the level of salvation all through their lives under the guise of “it’s all by grace, not by works.”
Thus. they claim that spiritual growth doesn’t come by works, forgetting that the Bible says: “faith without works is dead”.
You cannot afford to stay as a baby Christian for years. You must desire the sincere milk of God’s word which is necessary for your spiritual growth.
Only then will you be able to do exploits for God, take new territories, win souls, perform miracles, pray in the Holy Ghost, overcome bad habits, et cetera.
Those who get commended by God are those who grow in grace.
Dear child, rise today, take your place, and begin to put in the work so that you can grow in the things of the Spirit.

OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 30 AUGUST 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.
