OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TEENS FRIDAY 26TH JANUARY 2018: GENTLE SPIRIT
MEMORISE: To speak evil of no man, to be no
brawlers, but gentle, shewing all meekness unto
all men. Titus 3:2
Please read: James 3:17
The Operating System installed in a device will
determine the function of that device. For example, there are certain things that an Android operating system can do or accept which an
Apple operating system cannot do or accept.
This the same with humans. Our spirit can be said to be our operating system.
What our spirit allows our body to do is a pointer to what kind of spirit is in us.
It could either be the Spirit of God or the spirit of the devil. Open Heaven 26 January 2018
This is why Jesus
Christ said “by their fruits, you shall know them”.
In other words, by the things they do, you will know whose spirit is in them.
When you see two people fighting you can tell that the spirit in them is not of God, because the
Spirit of God is gentle and that is why it is
symbolized by a dove.
The spirit of the devil, on the other hand, is violent; symbolized by a
roaring lion, going to and fro, seeking whom to devour
What is your typical reaction to events around you, is it that of violence or gentleness? Watch
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
1. I am Thine 0 Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer blessed Lord
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side
2. Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
4. There are depths of love that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
