OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 9 AUGUST 2022 MESSAGE
It’s easy to be obedient when you are told to do what you wish to but difficult when you don’t like what you were asked to do. For example, if you like doing dishes and you were told to do the dishes after a meal, you would do so gladly but if you were asked to weed the garden when you don’t like to hold a cutlass or any gardening tool, you would likely decline to take up such a task.
As a child of God, you have to come to a point where obedience will be your nature. In fact the whole essence of Christianity is obedience to Gods word and those of the people He has placed in positions of authority to guide you.
The elders have a saying that what an elderly person can see while sitting, a child can’t see it even if he/ she climbs on a tree. This means that the wisdom of an elder is needed by young people. One way this wisdom will be passed across is through instructions.
If you want to be wise, it’s best you prayerfully look for wise elders who will guide you into all that God has purposed for your life. If Jesus could obey God even to the point of death, you can, too.

Father, please release upon me the spirit of total obedience to You.
OPEN HEAVEN FOR TEENS 9 AUGUST 2022 HYMN
I AM THINE O LORD
1. I am Thine, O Lord,
I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise
in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer,
nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer,
nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to
Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up
with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight
of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer,
and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love
that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy
that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
