OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY, FRIDAY 31ST JANUARY 2020 - HATE WHAT GOD HATES I

THEME: HATE WHAT GOD HATES I (DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR FRIDAY 31ST JANUARY 2020 BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE)

MEMORY VERSE: Hebrews 1:9
Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

READ: PROVERBS 6:16-19 (KJV)

16. These six things doth the LORD hate; yea, seven are an abomination unto him;

17. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.



MESSAGE

You cannot claim to love what God loves and not hate what He hates. The Bible has made it easy for us to identify the things that God hates by listing them out in Proverbs 6:16-19:

“These six things doth the LORD hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.”

Today we will only discuss two of the things God hates as seen in the passage above. The very first thing on the list is “a proud look.” God hates pride.

James 4:6 says God resists the proud. In other words, if you are proud, forget about being a friend of God because He hates pride.

But if you love Him, you too would hate pride. You would not look down on others nor insist people call you by a title or greet you in a certain way.

The next thing on the list is “a lying tongue.” God hates lies. It amazes me when I see Christians lying and they’ll say it was a white lie.

Do you think there’s a section in heaven for those who tell white lies? The Bible says ALL liars shall have their part in the lake of fire (Revelations 21:8).

The white, black and multicoloured liars are all going to hell because God hates lies. Stop telling lies.

Jesus is called “The Truth” (John 14:6), so anything like a lie is irritating to Him. On the other hand, the devil is the father and lord of lies (John 8:44).


Anyone who still tell lies no matter the colour cannot claim to be a friend of God; the fellow is rather a child of the father of liars – the devil. Choose to become a child of God today.

KEY POINT:

God hates sin and if you love Him, you would also hate it.


BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: EXODUS 4-6


HYMNAL: SING HYMN 27

TAKE MY LIFE, AND LET IT BE

1. Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.

2. Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.


3. Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.

4. Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose.

5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.

6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
