OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR
TEENS SATURDAY 10TH FEBRUARY 2018: GODLINESS AND CLEANLINESS
MEMORISE: Wash you, make you clean; put
away the evil of your doings from mine eyes;
cease to do evil; Isaiah 1:16
Please read: 2 Corinthians 7:1
Our God hates dirt. He is a clean God and cannot
dwell in a dirty place. Before He can dwell in the
heart of a man, that heart has to first be washed
clean with the blood of Jesus. My father in the
Lord, Pa Josiah Akindayomi once preached a
message at an evening service about God and
cleanliness. He said we want God in our house,
yet we play dirty music in that house. For you as
a teenager, you want God to dwell in your life,
but you listen to ungodly music; God and dirty
lyrics cannot stay in the same heart. My father in
the Lord also asked us when last we raised up
our bed and swept under the bed. That day, the
first thing I did when I got home was to raise my
bed, and I swept out so much dirt that I was
God sees everything everywhere, He sees the
innermost part of your heart, He knows how you
throw dirt and abandon it in the corners of your
room and He does not like it. If you want God to
dwell in every area of your life, then you must
keep everywhere clean. If the president is
coming to visit you, will you not clean up your
surroundings? How much more when the King of
kings is to come and dwell with you?
God only dwells in clean places
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. When we walk with the Lord in the light of His
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will,
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
2. Not a shadow can rise, not a cloud in the
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt or a fear, not a sigh or a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.
3. Not a burden we bear, not a sorrow we share,
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief or a loss, not a frown or a cross,
But is blessed if we trust and obey.
4.But we never can prove the delights of His
Until all on the altar we lay;
For the favor He shows, for the joy He bestows,
Are for them who will trust and obey.
5. Then in fellowship sweet we will sit at His
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way;
What He says we will do, where He sends we will
Never fear, only trust and obey.
