OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR THURSDAY 26TH MARCH 2020: GOD’S PRINCIPLES

THEME: GOD’S PRINCIPLES (DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE)
MEMORY VERSE: Galatians 6:7

Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. 

READ: GALATIANS 6:4-5 (KJV)
4. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another.

5. For every man shall bear his own burden.












MESSAGE

God has principles and even He abides by them.

For example, His principle is that for the cleansing of sins, there must be the shedding of unpolluted blood, so when the blood of animals was not enough to take away sins, He did not change the principle; rather He sent His own Son (which was a great sacrifice) who was completely unpolluted to shed His blood for our sins (Hebrews 9:13, 10:12).

This is why I wonder how people do things contrary to the principles of God, yet expect good results.

If God, in His sovereignty abides by His own principles, then we ought to also.

One of His principles is that if you don’t work, you will not eat (2 Thessalonians 3:10).

So, when a lazy fellow is asking for a breakthrough, I wonder if he expects God to just drop the money into his lap.

If you want to be wealthy, then you have to be willing to work and work hard. Another principle of wealth that God has laid down is the principle of giving.

Do you know that even herbalists use this principle and it works? Yes, because God’s principles are universal; whoever obeys them will reap the fruits.

The reason many Christians are still in poverty is simply because they do not give. Luke 6:38 says:

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”

One general principle of God is that whatsoever you sow is what you will reap (Galatians 6:7).

This means that if you want kindness, show kindness to others. If you want help, help others.

There are so many prayers that will not be answered until we begin to work in line with God’s principles.

His word is yea and amen; you cannot use prayers to cajole Him into going against His word. Do the right thing!

KEY POINT:

When you want something from God, check what His word says about it, then obey.

HYMNAL:

HYMN 30 – WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD

1. When we walk with the Lord,
In the light of His word,
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.

CHORUS:
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 skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear,
Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss,
Nor a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows
And the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
