Open Heaven For November 6, 2022, TOPIC: Why You Can Be Sure Of Victory I
MEMORISE: “The heavens are thine, the earth also is thine: as for the world and the fulness thereof, thou hast founded them.” – Psalm 89:11 (KJV)
READ: Psalm 104:1-5 (KJV)
1 Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
2 Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
3 Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
4 Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
5 Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 23-24
As a child of God, you can be sure that God will give you victory no matter the situation you are faced with. The first reason is that nobody can defeat Him on land. Psalm 24:1 says:
The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.
If your enemy is on land, he cannot win the battle because God was the One who laid the foundations of the earth! In Numbers 16:23-33, some people gathered themselves together against Moses. What the Almighty God did was to speak to the earth to open its mouth and swallow them.
Some people may be gathered against you; because your Father is the One who owns the land and the fullness thereof, He will not allow them to overcome you. The ground could not have Jesus because after three days, the Saviour of the world arose from the grave. He has power over the land and so your enemies cannot overwhelm you no matter how hard they try. The ground had Lazarus within it for four days, but the Resurrection and the Life spoke just a word, and he came out alive.
When I was much younger, there was a wedding in my village, attended by all the witches and wizards there. I preached against them with everything I had that day. When I finished preaching, they told the mother of the bride, “So you invited this man to come and insult us, right? We will see how your daughter will give birth.”The daughter became pregnant and the woman ran to me saying, “They said my daughter will never deliver.” I told her, “The day your daughter will deliver, every one of them will be asleep.” The woman delivered safely and that child is now a medical doctor.
As long as the Lord lives, every word against your prosperity on this earth will never come to pass in Jesus name. Lamentations 3:37 says “Who is he that saith, and it cometh to pass, when the Lord commandeth it not?”
As long as God is your Father and the earth with its fullness is His, you are guaranteed a safe passage into success and victory, in Jesus’ name.
Heavenly Father, in the name that is above every other, I command all contrary powers to fall before me now, so that Your name alone will be glorified in all areas of my life.
HYMN 2: Conquerors And Overcomes Now Are We
1 Conquerors and overcomers now are we,
Thro’ the precious blood of Christ we’ve victory,
If the Lord be for us, we can never fail;
Nothing ‘gainst his mighty pow’r can e’er prevail.
Conquerors are we, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood;
God will give us victory, thro’ the blood, thro’ the blood,
Thro’ the Lamb for sinners slain,
Yet who lives and reigns again,
More than conquerors are we,
More than conquerors are we.
2 In the name of Israel’s God we’ll onward press,
Overcoming sin and all unrighteousness;
Not to us, but unto him the praise shall be,
For salvation and for blood-bought victory.
3 Unto him that overcometh shall be giv’n
Here to eat of hidden manna sent from heav’n;
Over yonder he the victor’s palm shall bear,
And a robe of white, and golden crown shall wear.
