Redeem The Time by Joel Osteen
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise.
Ephesians 5:15, NIV

TODAY'S WORD:

Time is one of the most valuable assets that God has given us. There are only 24 hours in a day, and once they are gone, they are gone forever. You can never live this day over again. The apostle Paul tells us to redeem our time, to use it wisely. That means, don’t waste it. Don’t live this day unfocused, undisciplined and unmotivated.

I want to challenge you to take inventory of your life. Are you living it to the full? With purpose and passion? Pursuing your dreams? Or, are you distracted? Indifferent? Just doing whatever comes along? Are you in a job you don’t like? Hanging out with people who are pulling you down? That’s not redeeming the time; that’s wasting the time.

God has given you a present. It’s called “today.” What are you going to do with it? If you’re going to reach your highest potential, you have to be an “on purpose” person. You know where you’re going. You’re not vague, distracted, waiting to see what happens. This is a call to action. Get focused. Get organized. Set your goals. Make your plans. God could have chosen anyone to be here, but He chose you.

PRAYER FOR TODAY:

Father, thank You for the gift of today. I dedicate this day to You. I dedicate my mind, will and emotions to You. Use me this day for Your purposes and keep me on the path You have for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Quit Complaining by Joyce Meyer by Joyce Meyer
Whoever is wise, let him attend to these things; let them consider the steadfast love of the LORD.

— Psalm 107:43

Today, thank God and decide not to complain about anything. Ask Him to show you anytime you are getting ready to complain, and to help you hold your tongue. Today, give thanks for what you have without looking at what you don’t have. Some people have the same problems you have, but they don’t know God. At least you can give thanks that God is in your life.

The Word says, Let there be no filthiness (obscenity, indecency) nor foolish and sinful (silly and corrupt) talk, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting or becoming; but instead voice your thankfulness [to God] (Ephesians 5:4 AMPC). Guard your tongue today.

Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for all of Your wonderful blessings. Please help me not to complain but instead voice my gratitude. I ask for Your help to continually focus on the good and view life from Your perspective. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Facing Life’s Obstacles by Dr. Charles Stanley
Joshua 1:1-9

As Joshua stepped into Moses’ giant-sized sandals, he faced a tremendous challenge: bringing the Israelites into the Promised Land. The responsibility was huge, and we can surmise from the Lord’s repeated commands to “be strong and courageous” that Joshua was probably not feeling up to the task (Josh. 1:6-7; Josh. 1:9).

At one time or another, we all face obstacles that seem insurmountable. The question is, How will we respond? Some people try to push through or manipulate their way around the barriers, while others wallow in hopelessness and give up. But the Lord wants us to trust Him to remove each impediment.

Any obstacle that stands between us and God’s purpose is subject to His supernatural power. Most of us would readily agree that nothing is too difficult for the Lord, but fear and worry reveal our doubts. By focusing on the problem, we allow it to grow and block our view of almighty God.

Knowing the difficulty of Joshua’s assignment, the Lord assured him that he would be successful in completing the mission. God’s responsibility was to remove every hindrance that stood between the Israelites and the land He had promised to give them. Joshua’s job was to believe the Lord and carefully obey all His commands.

Obstacles are one way that our faith can grow. When you are confused and cannot see how God could work out your situation, do not walk away in defeat and miss His blessing. He wants to teach you His way of obedience, trust, and courage. Believe Him—He always keeps His promises.

Bible in One Year: Amos 1-4

1 John 5:4
For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith

After we prepare for conflict, we need to get ready for victory! No need to debate what God has declared. Every step brings us that much closer to His promise.

When God promised Jericho to the Israelites, He instructed them to march. Every circle around the walls gave them opportunity to prepare for victory. As they marched in silence, they must have remembered God’s faithfulness to them in the past.

If God delivered them from Pharaoh’s brick pit, He was well able to give Jericho to them. If He pushed back the waters of the Red Sea, He could surely topple these walls. If He could be a fire by night and a cloud by day, He could lead them to victory. Manna from heaven, water from a rock...God was with them, and He was for them.

With every lap, their faith grew. A shout was building. They believed that on the seventh day, when they lifted their hands, when their shout erupted, those walls would come down. Victory belonged to them!

As you march around your Jericho, get ready for victory. Rehearse the things that God has done for you in the past. Faith will bring down the walls to reveal His promise!

Blessing:

May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. As you recall God’s faithfulness in the past, remember that nothing is impossible for Him now. May your shout erupt in a roar that brings down every wall in the name of Jesus!

You Are God's Most Prized Possession by Jerry Savelle
When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man, that you care for him? For you made him a little lower than the angels, and crowned him with glory and honor. (Psalm 8:3-5, NIV)

Have you ever just stopped to look around at God’s creation? A beautiful evening sunset, a clear, star-filled night, and the distant terrain of a majestic mountain are sights that take your breath away.

And yet, as breathtaking as God’s creation may be, there is something He prizes even more highly than His creation—you! You are God’s most prized possession. In fact, in His mind you are His prized possession above the stars, above the moon, above the heavens, and above all His creative handiwork.

Seeing God as the very Artist of Creation, the psalmist was asking, “Lord, You’re so magnificent and creative, why would You have anything to do with man? Why would you be so mindful of him?”

An artist may display the many wonderful, creative pieces he designs, but there’s always one that is his most prized possession. As the Artist of Creation, this is the way God feels about you. You are His most prized possession.

Confession: Thank you, Father, that You are always mindful of me, thinking thoughts of love, good, and favor toward me. Thank you that I am your most prized possession.

Beleive That God Is Your Rewarder by Joseph Prince
Hebrews 11:6

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

Most people quote only the first part of Hebrews 11:6—“without faith it is impossible to please Him.” Yet, it goes on to say, “for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” In other words, the faith that pleases God is the kind of faith that believes that God exists and that He is a rewarder.

The Bible also says that “faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). So even in times of difficulty, when we don’t see good things happening in our circumstances, we are to believe that God will turn things around and reward us.

God turned things around for Ruth, the Moabite widow, when she believed the Lord and made Him her God (see Ruth 1:16). The Bible tells us that she was given a “full reward” by the Lord when she came under His wings for refuge (see Ruth 2:12). Not only did He give her protection, He also gave her abundant provision, exceeding favor and a glorious redemption (see Ruth 2:9–17, 3:11, 4:10–13).

When Rahab, the harlot of Jericho, heard reports of how the Lord had opened up the Red Sea for the children of Israel, she believed that “He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath” (Joshua 2:9–11). Though Rahab had not personally witnessed the miracles, she believed God and hid the Jewish spies from their pursuers (see Joshua 2:4–6). Because of her faith, she not only did not perish with those who did not believe (see Joshua 6:25, Hebrews 11:31), but she was also given a place in the “hall of faith” in Hebrews 11.

God was so pleased with the faith of these two Gentile women that He not only blessed them in their lifetimes, but He also put them into the genealogy of His Son Jesus Christ, the great Redeemer and rewarder.

Beloved, when you come to the Lord with your needs, believe that He is God, and that He is a rewarder. God has pleasure in this kind of faith. He wants to be the rewarder of your faith in Him!

The Shadow of His Hand by Tammy Lang Jensen
As I closed my eyes this morning, I saw an archer of the Lord releasing arrow after arrow in rapid succession. 

Each one was quickly hitting it’s mark. As God is releasing the remnant in rapid succession into their assignments, positions, tasks and the marketplace. I got a sense that a spirit of competition was going to try and arise.

But the Lord says,”As quickly as it rears it’s ugly head, it will be cut off at the root!” The called out ones, the remnant will walk in surety that no other person could fill their God ordained position. That just like Esther, they have been raised up for a time such as this. So there will be no jostling for position. But a militant army, walking shoulder to shoulder. Brothers and sisters, who walk in agape love and a spirit of excellence....

He made my mouth like a sharpened sword, in the shadow of his hand he hid me; he made me into a polished arrow and concealed me in his quiver (Isaiah 49:2). The Lord said to tell you, “Your time of concealment is over.” He has trained you quietly and privately, under his hand. He could not risk you being contaminated or tainted by this world. But now is the time to rise up in power and might. I see this army walking in great authority. They know who they are, and whose they are; children of the Most High God. Kings, Priest and Prophets, But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (1 Peter 2:9)....
He has called you, he has equipped you.

The battle is real, but so are God’s soldiers. They have endured heartache, suffering and pain for their King. They have been cast out, ridiculed and mocked, but they remain steadfast. Blessed are you when they shall insult you and shall persecute you. And lying, shall say all kinds of evil against you on account of Me (Matthew 5:11). Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds (James 1:2)....

I am joyful because I serve you. My Master, my King, my Prince. You have Ransomed us from eternal darkness. How can we ever repay you. We pledge our lives as soldiers in the army of Christ....
Archers on the front lines, releasing our arrows of prayer....

12:14
My Pure Light by Deborah Waldron Fry
Heard," It's raining jewels". And then I saw it spelled REIGNING JEWELS. You are a Reigning Jewel in His Hand. There is a Sound of the abundance of Rain!

Beloved. There is an open heaven over you. My Pure Light is shining upon you, My Child. Jewels from Heaven are raining down upon you. Alpha Omega Jewels. Gems of prophecy and revelation; gems of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding; precious things of the Holy Spirit. All these Heavenly Treasures are found in your Savior. The Bridegroom is decked with Jewels, ALL the treasures are found in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Gems of the Glory of the Latter Rain. Gifts from My Throne of Grace. I have saved you, My Child. I have clothed you with the garments of Salvation, covered you with the Robe of Righteousness, adorned you with My Glory, and set My Spirit within your heart. You are as a Bride adorned with Jewels. I have crowned you with Glory and Honor. You are as the Precious Stones in My Crown, sparkling in the land. You are My Reigning Jewels, reflecting the Pure Light of your Father. Even the darkness shall be Light to you.The Jewels of Heaven are raining down upon you from My Head unto yours. See the Bright Clouds which Yahweh has made, listen, Beloved, there is a Sound of the abundance of Rain!

...Revelation 21:19 The wall of the city was built on foundation stones inlaid with twelve precious stones the first was jasper, the second sapphire, the third agate, the fourth emerald, the fifth onyx, the sixth carnelian, the seventh chrysolite, the eighth beryl, the ninth topaz, the tenth chrysoprase, the eleventh jacinth, the twelfth amethyst." [ALL of these 12 gems are anisotropic gems, i.e., gems that show colorful patterns under pure light]

...Revelation 4:3 And He who was sitting was like a jasper stone and a sardius in appearance; and there was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald in appearance.

...Zechariah 9:16 And the LORD their God will save them in that day as the flock of His people; For they are as the stones of a crown, Sparkling in His land.

...Isaiah 61:10 I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.

...Malachi 3:17 And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him.

...Colossians 2... so that they may know the mystery of God, namely Christ, 3in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.

...Zechariah 10:1 Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

Open Heavens: The Unchangeable God by Pastor E.A Adeboye
Saturday September 21st 2019
Memorise: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Hebrews 13:8

Read: Deuteronomy 7:1-12 (KJV)
7 When the Lord thy God shall bring thee into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites, and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than thou;
2 And when the Lord thy God shall deliver them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:
3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son, nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
4 For they will turn away thy son from following me, that they may serve other gods: so will the anger of the Lord be kindled against you, and destroy thee suddenly.
5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire.
6 For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.
7 The Lord did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for ye were the fewest of all people:
8 But because the Lord loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the Lord brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt.
9 Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy with them that love him and keep his commandments to a thousand generations;
10 And repayeth them that hate him to their face, to destroy them: he will not be slack to him that hateth him, he will repay him to his face.
11 Thou shalt therefore keep the commandments, and the statutes, and the judgments, which I command thee this day, to do them.
12 Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy which he sware unto thy fathers:

Bible in one year: 
2nd Kings 9,
Daniel 5:13-28,

Hymn: 
Sing hymn 14

Message:
When we say that our God is unchangeable, we may not know the full implication of what we are saying unless we are well-grounded in His word and ways.


 His word in today’s memory verse emphatically states that Jesus Christ, the Author and Finisher of our faith, is the same yesterday, today and forever, meaning that what He stood for over two thousand years ago has not changed today. Unlike politicians who change their ideologies with the mood swings of the polity, Jesus Christ said in Matthew 5:18:

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

God’s covenants are established on the pillars of His unchangeable nature (Malachi 3:6). He therefore expects those in covenant with Him to be consistent in living by the terms of His covenant. In today’s Bible reading, the Almighty God reminded the children of Israel of the need to abide by the laws of the covenant His has with them. He told them that He had chosen them as a holy and special people for Himself, preferring them above all other people on earth. He chose them not because they were more in number or more righteous than others but because of His love for them and because of His covenant with His friend, Abraham, who was their father. God chose them to live a life set apart for holiness through obedience to His commandments. Just as God chose them, so has He chosen all those who believe in His Son Jesus Christ today.

We are chosen by God to be a peculiar people consecrated to Him (1st Peter 2:9). Beloved, do not be deceived, God has not changed His standard of holiness (2nd Timothy 2:19). If He said in times past that He hates sexual immorality of all kinds, including homosexuality (the reason for which He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah), then He has not changed His mind on this today (Romans 1:26-27).
 No matter how well the world propagates the lie that homosexuals are created that way, it will forever remain a lie of the devil. Just as the devil deceived Eve, so is he deceiving people with diverse philosophies built around lies today. I am persuaded and convinced by the infallible word of God and the Holy Spirit that gays and lesbians cannot inherit the kingdom of God, just as robbers, thieves of all categories and treasury looters will not enter into it (1st Corinthians 6:9-10). God’s unchangeable character is a call to those who are partakers of His divine nature to remain resolute in upholding His standard and banner in this world.

Prayer Point
Unchangeable Changer, please change every unpleasant situation in my life for the better today, and grant me grace to honour Your covenant through obedience in Jesus’ Name.

Open Heavens Daily Devotional Lessons was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical Churches in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer's Ministries.
