Gen 32:3 And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom.

Gen 32:5 And have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that l may find grace in thy sight.

Gen 32:6 And the messengers returned to Jacob,saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with
him.

Open Heaven 20 December 2017 (wednesday) Daily Devotional Message with Hymn

If you measure life by the experiences of some people, you will live far from your God-given purpose and barely scratch the surface.

Some people are alive but only just surviving from day to day. In Luke 13:11-17, the woman who was bound for 18 years
did not die, but she was merely surviving and not living. Marriage Tips For Couples 2018

Also, the man with the unclean spirit in Mark 1:23-26 was continually going to church, and yet he was inhabited by an unclean spirit.

It was even in the synagogue that the Lord met him. Although he was living, he was the captive of a demonic spirit. What of Naaman who appeared to be a distinguished and successful man, and yet he had a problem that no man could solve (2 Kings 5:1)?

Just like the individuals in all these examples, many people today are barely surviving, and are not living life as purposed by God for them. God not only
wants you to live life, He also wants you to enjoythe abundant life that He gives (John 10:10).

Are you not tired of managing”, struggling to survive, and living from hand to mouth? If you are truly tired, the Lord will make a way for you.

Open Heaven 20 December 2017

God is interested in the overflow of His blessings upon your life. He does not just want you to be healed, He also wants His healing virtue to flow through you to others.

He wants you to be free from captivity, and beyond this, He also wants you to set the captives free. God does not want just to rich but lend to nations. wants you to be so prosperous that when nations cannot balance their budgets, they will come and pay you a visit.

God wants you to bring great joy to your family, community, city and nation. However, no matter how much He wants the overflow for you, He will respect what you want for yourself.

He cannot force an overflow of His blessings on you when you want so little of it. There are different levels of greatness, and your choice of the type
of life you want for yourself has a role to play in determining how great you become.

Let us see the example of Esau. Yes, he sold his birthright, but as a seed of Abraham, he was so blessed from the remnant of blessing pronounced on him that he had 400 bodyguards.

How many bodyguards do ministers, senators, state governors or even
presidents have today? So you would agree that Esau was not doing badly.

However, compared to Jacob his brother, who became a great nation, the difference is definitely clear. Do you want to merely
survive, or do you want to be truly blessed with the overflowing portion of God’s blessings? The choice is yours!

Open Heaven 20 December 2017 Prayer Point:

Father, I am tired of just managing to survive. I choose the overflow of Your blessings. Please release it to me and my family now.

Open Heaven 20 December 2017 Hymn 10 THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING

There shall be showers of blessing:
This is the promise of love;
There shall be seasons refreshing,
Sent from the Savior above.

[Chorus]
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need:
Mercy drops round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

There shall be showers of blessing–
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
[Chorus]

There shall be showers of blessing:
Send them upon us, O Lord;
Grant to us now a refreshing;
Come, and now honor Thy Word.
[Chorus]

There shall be showers of blessing:
Oh, that today they might fall,
Now as to God we’re confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
