OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL 2023
OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL
DATE: FRIDAY JANUARY 13TH 2023
THEME: KILL PRIDE
MEMORISE: But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. James 4:6
READ: Proverbs 16:5
5 Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the LORD: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
More often than not, the people who provoke God do so through pride. The most junior staff in an organization would typically be humble and submissive. However, the day the person begins to feel overly important, he or she will start provoking some people. The moment you become proud, you begin to provoke God. Never forget that no matter how high you go, God is still the Most High.
God usually deals with proud people in two ways. The first is by recalling such a person suddenly and in a disgraceful manner. In Acts 12:20-24, King Herod's pride made him consent to being compared to the Most High. This made God order worms to eat him up alive. The Lord said, "Oh you think you are big because you are the commander-in-Chief of some armies?
I have armies that don't carry guns - ordinary worms". One moment Herod was sitting on the throne, the next moment, he was being eaten by worms. However, the Lord could also decide to disgrace the fellow openly while preserving his or her life. That is what He did to Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4:28-37.
Nebuchadnezzar was the greatest king of his time. He built a city called Babylon, which had one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. At a point, God saw that he was becoming proud and sent him a warning through a dream. Unfortunately, one year after the message came, he had forgotten it, so God said, "Okay, you think you are big? Go and eat with animals for seven years". Nobody removed his royal robes from him, he removed them with his own hands. If there is something that must leave your life permanently today, it is pride.
Be careful as you rise, so as not to begin to feel like you are overly important. The elders says that when cockroach falls, nobody hears the sound; when an ant falls, the ground doesn't tremble, but if an elephant falls, the tremors would be felt both near and far. If God is elevating you, be weary of pride so that it doesn't become a case of Him raising up an elephant so that when it falls everyone would pay attention, like in the case of Pharaoh (Romans 9:17).
If there is something that must leave your life permanently today, it is pride.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 42-43
AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE
HYMN 7: I AM THINE O LORD
1 I am Thine, O 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 O 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 yet may know
Ere Thee face to face I see;
There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
Ere I rest in peace with Thee.

I know that I am a sinner ,
I confess my sins before you today
I believe that you died on the cross and rose up on the third day
Dear Jesus, I need your forgiveness right now
I am not perfect and I cannot do it on my own
Please dear Jesus come into my heart
I surrender my life to you
Help me to live for you as from today
Please forgive me, change my life & show me how to know You in Jesus precious name . Amen
