Teens’ Open Heavens 31 October 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Be Courageous

Topic: Be Courageous [Tuesday 31, October 2017]

Memorise: “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.” – Deuteronomy 31:6

Read: 2 Chronicles 32:7-8

7 Be strong and courageous, be not afraid nor dismayed for the king of Assyria, nor for all the multitude that is with him: for there be more with us than with him:

8 With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the LORD our God to help us, and to fight our battles. And the people rested themselves upon the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.

Bible In One Year: Luke 21-22. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9 – My Faith Has Found Resting A Place


Courage is a virtue that is not optional for children of God who want to fulfil destiny. Without courage, we can’t even say we are images of the Living God. This is why God Almighty always emphasizes the need to be courageous in the lives of those who He wants to use for special assignments. In the memory verse for today, Moses, the servant of God, encouraged the children of Israel to be of good courage, void of fear for people. Anyone who wants to represent God in this world must be courageous, or else, he will make a mess of the divine assignment like king Saul did. When he was confronted with the half-obedience he was exhibited concerning the Amalekites, he had this to say:

“…I have sinned: for I have transgressed the commandment of the Lord, and thy words: because I feared the people, and obeyed their voice.” – 1 Samuel 15:24

Another reason why we should not be afraid of any man is that God is with us. His Name is Emmanuel. He Himself said “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.” (Matthew 28:20). These are the facts that should instil courage into us because faithful is He who has promised; He will fulfil it.

Prayer Point: Father, give me courage; don’t let me lose my ground of faith to the devil.

Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place

My faith has found a resting place,
Not in device or creed;
I trust the ever living One,
His wounds for me shall plead.

I need no other argument,
I need no other plea,
It is enough that Jesus died,
And that He died for me.

Enough for me that Jesus saves,
This ends my fear and doubt;
A sinful soul I come to Him,
He’ll never cast me out.

My heart is leaning on the Word,
The living Word of God,
Salvation by my Savior’s Name,
Salvation through His blood.

My great Physician heals the sick,
The lost He came to save;
For me His precious blood He shed,
For me His life He gave.
