OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS FRIDAY 11TH MAY 2018: WHOSE IMAGE ARE YOU?
MEMORISE: Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Proverbs 13:12
Please read: 1 Samuel 30:1-6
Discouragement is a great tool in the hands of the enemy. The devil usually does not apply
discouragement when you are in high spirits or
when you are happy; discouragement comes.when you are in low spirits, sad and unhappy. If
there is something you have been looking up to God for that is pending, that is when you become a candidate for discouragement.
The devil introduces discouragement when you are tired,
weak and sometimes helpless (1 Kings 19:4). To
overcome discouragement therefore, allow the
joy of the Lord to be your strength. Be filled with God’s Word and hold on to His promises at every point in time.
Moreover, when you are closest to achieving your goal, the enemy can bring discouragement.
We often fall prey to this because of our inability.to see beyond now. Open Heaven 13 May 2018
Whenever the devil tells you that you cannot achieve a thing, immediately tell him that the Word of God says you can do all things by God’s strength. Never believe the lie of
the devil or of men. You can do all things through the strength of the Lord that is inside you.
Receive divine encouragement from Heaven
today in Jesus’ name. Open Heaven 12 May 2018
Use positive confessions and Bible-based
declarations to counter any discouragement you
may be facing now.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
2 Kings 1-3
1. My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
2. May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
A living fire !
3. While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
4. When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold, sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Saviour, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
