OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS AUGUST 4TH 2019

THEME: AGE AND GOD’S CALL

MEMORISE: Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. Isaiah 6:8

READ: 1 Samuel 3:4-10

That the LORD called Samuel: and he answered, Here am I.

And he ran unto Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou calledst me. And he said, I called not; lie
down again. And he went and lay down.

And the LORD called yet again, Samuel. And Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And he answered, I called not, my son; lie down again.

Now Samuel did not yet know the LORD, neither was the word of the LORD yet revealed unto him.

And the LORD called Samuel again the third time. And he arose and went to Eli, and said, Here am I; for thou didst call me. And Eli perceived that the LORD had called the child.

Therefore Eli said unto Samuel, Go, lie down: and it shall be, if he call thee, that thou shalt say, Speak, LORD; for thy servant heareth. So Samuel went and lay down in his place.

And the LORD came, and stood, and called as at other times, Samuel, Samuel. Then Samuel answered, Speak; for thy servant heareth.

MESSAGE:

Age has nothing to do with God’s call. He does not necessarily favour the oldest above the youngest.

A classic example is David the youngest son of Jesse who was chosen above his seven older brothers.

Jesus had also started having deep Biblical conversations with big men of God at the age of twelve.

Do you desire to do great things for God? Do you want to heal the sick and raise the dead? Receive the ability to do so now in Jesus’ name.

God can use you even at your tender age, in fact He finds it easier to use younger ones like you who have less distractions. All you who have less distractions.

All you have to do, just like Samuel, is tell Him that you are available. Tell Him you are available by working for Him in the Church.

Find the department where you want to be used and join them. Start preaching the gospel, because Jesus said if you preach the gospel, He will confirm it with signs and wonders following. (Mark 16:20).

KEY POINT:

You are not too young to start doing greater works than my generation is doing for God.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 73-74, Romans 5

Hymn 15

1. Wonderful story of love;
Tell it to me again;
Wonderful story of love;
Wake the immortal strain!
Angels with rapture announce it,
Shepherds with wonder receive it;
Sinner, 0 won’t you believe It?
Wonderful story of love.

Chorus:
Wonderful! Wonderful!
Wonderful, Wonderful story of love.

2. Wonderful story of love,
Though you are far away;
Wonderful story of love;
Still He doth call today;
Calling from Calvary’s mountain,
Down from the crystal bright fountain,
E’en from the dawn of creation,
Wonderful story of love.

3. Wonderful story of love:
Jesus provides a rest;
Wonderful story of love;
For all the pure and blest,
Rest in those mansions above us,
With those who’ve gone on before us,
Singing the rapturous chorus,
Wonderful story of Love.
