OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS 23 DECEMBER 2019 MONDAY
THEME: UPGRADE YOUR GIVING
MEMORISE: Give, and it shall be given unto you. Luke 6:38a
READ: Luke 6:38
Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.
DAILY CONFESSION: The lord is moving over my life, He has set me free from all oppression, bondage and depression. The glory of the Most High works magnificently over my life and household. He is making room for me in high places. The pace of my life is directed by God because I function by and in His grace. My testimony is permanent nothing can stop or reverse it because God has settled and sealed it. Glory be to God, Hallelujah!
Teenagers generally feel since they are not earning any money, then giving is not for them. When it is offering time in Church, I see many teenagers going to collect money from their parents to give.
This is not wrong in itself, I only want you to upgrade to the level of giving God some of the money that you could have used yourself. This shows that you love and honour Him.
When your dear friend ask you to buy a snack, you buy for them from your own money, why then it is difficult to give to God from your own money.
What you give might be small, but we have learnt from the widow’s mites story in Mark 12:42-43 that God is interested in the heart more than He is with the amount given.
Oh Lord, give me a heart that is always willing to give
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Habukkuk 1-3 ; Revelation 14
1. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is the love of God flowing through you?
Are you telling the lost of the Savior?
Are you ready His service to do?
Make me a channel of blessing today,
Make me a channel of blessing, I pray;
My life possessing, my service blessing,
Make me a channel of blessing today.
2. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Are you burdened for those that are lost?
Have you urged upon those who are straying
The Savior who does on the cross
3. Is your life a channel of blessing?
Is it a daily telling for Him?
Have you spoken the word of salvation?
To those who are dying in sin?
4. We cannot be channels of blessing
If our lives are not free from sin;
We will barriers be and a hindrance
To those we are trying to win.
