OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: TUESDAY 1ST JUNE, 2021

THEME: IS GOD SILENT?

MEMORISE:
Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: Isaiah 59:1

READ: Isaiah 59:1-3.

1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:

2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

3 For your hands are defiled with blood, and your fingers with iniquity; your lips have spoken lies, your tongue hath muttered perverseness.

MESSAGE

Usually, when people think God is silent, He may be speaking but they are just not listening. At other times, they don’t want to accept what He has to say. God can also be silent when your covenant with Him has been broken. This happened with King Saul who wanted to hear from God as well as familiar spirits.

If you have prayed to know God’s mind on certain issues and He seems to be silent, turn the searchlight on yourself. God is never at fault; check your heart, sincerity and willingness to accept His plan for you. God refuses to speak to some people simply because they have idols in their hearts. Never allow your desire to stand between you and God. When it appears as if God is silent, then there may be something you have to give up. Ezekiel 14:3 says:

Deal of the day

Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stumblingblock of their iniquity before their face: should I be enquired of at all by them?

Some people cannot hear God because sin has created a barrier between them and God (Isaiah 59:1-3) or they have a wrong motive. James 4:3 says:

Deal of the day

Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

For your prayers to be answered, you need to bring down the glory of God. God’s glory brings deliverance. Psalm 24:8 says the Lord of glory is strong and mighty in battle. I recall a student who wet himself in an examination hall. He was going to be excused from the hall when he asked the people around to send for his pastor. I was called and briefed of what happened. I got to the place and discerning that the boy was under some demonic manipulation, I commanded the foul spirit to lose its hold in Jesus’ Name. God answered and he was immediately set free. He changed his clothes, returned to the hall and finished before everybody else. Just imagine what would have happened if I had not been in tune with the Spirit of God to know what to do.

The shortest way of calling God’s attention when it seems He is silent is through intense praise. God dwells in the praises of His people. His glory announces His person and presence; it is a revelation of His power and awesomeness. No enemy can stand His glory. Call on Him today, listen to what He has to say and watch your life turn around for good.

ACTION POINT:
Meditate over all what God has told you in the past and see whether you have ignored any. If you have, repent and restitute your ways.

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 1: ALL HAIL THE POWER OF JESUS’ NAME!

1. All hail the power of Jesus’ Name!
Deal of the day
Let angels prostrate fall;
Let angels prostrate fall.
Bring forth the royal diadem,
And crown Him Lord of all.

2. Let highborn seraph tune the lyre,
And as they time it, fall;
And as they time it, fall.
Before His face Who tunes their choir;
Deal of the day
And crown Him Lord of all.

3. Crown Him, ye morning stars or light,
Who fixed this floating ball;
Who fixed this floating ball.
Now hail the strength of Israel’s might,
And crown Him Lord of all.

4. Crown Him, ye Martyrs of your God,
Deal of the day
Who from His altar call;
Who from His altar call.
Extol the Stem of Jesse’s Rod,
And crown Him Lord of all.

5. Ye chosen seed of Israel’s race,
Ye ransomed from the fall;
Ye ransomed from the fall;
Hail Him Who saves you by His grace,
And crown Him Lord of all.

6. Hail Him, ye heirs of David’s line,
Whom David Lord did call;
Whom David Lord did call.
To God incarnate, Man divine,
And crown Him Lord of all.

7. Sinners, whose love can ne’er forget,
The wormwood and the gall;
The wormwood and the gall,
Go spread your trophies at His feet,
And crown Him Lord of all.
