OPEN HEAVENS FOR TEENS 31 MARCH 2020 TUESDAY: SOW
MEMORISE: In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good. Ecclesiastes 11:6
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.
Many years ago, I needed some money urgently and so I prayed to God for provision. On Sunday of that same week, I was in my office in the Church when a little girl came and handed an envelope.
She said she had been saving the money to travel abroad during her holiday, but God told her to come and give it to me. I collected it and prayed a simple prayer for her.
When I opened the envelope, it was exactly the amount I needed.
Now, since God had used this girl to meet my need, every Sunday I was always looking out for her just to greet her and ask how she is doing.
But then, I stopped seeing her for a few weeks and I got bothered. After a while I saw her again, now looking more radiant than before.
When I asked why I had not seen her for long, she said that her friend was supposed to go abroad for the holidays, but she insisted that she wasn’t going except she took her along, so her parents had to go and beg my little girl’s parents to please let them take her along, promising that they will cover the expenses.
You see, many of you teenagers think that giving is for the adults alone.
When you get any money, all you are thinking is of how to spend it. Sowing it as a seed does not come to your mind at all.
The one who is losing is you. That my little girl was barely a teenager and she was already experiencing supernatural provision.
She had not saved up all the money needed for her trip, yet she went on an all expense paid trip.
Whenever God nudges you to sow seed, don’t ignore with the excuse of your age.
Go ahead and sow it and you will surely reap the fruits from your seed.
Don’t eat up every money you get, sow some of it as seed
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
JUDGES 3-5; LUKE 7:31-50
1. There shall be showers of blessing
This is the promise of love;
There shall be season refreshing
Sent from the Savior above
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drop ’round are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
2. There shall be showers of blessing
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
3. There shall be showers of blessing
Send them upon us O Lord
Grant to us a refreshing;
Come now and honor Thy Word.
4. There shall be showers of blessing
Oh that today thy might fall,
Now as to God we are confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
