25 And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

26 And ye shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the name of the Lord your God, that hath dealt wondrously with you: and my people shall never be ashamed.

27 And ye shall know that I am in the midst of Israel, and that I am the Lord your God, and none else: and my people shall never be ashamed.

Open Heaven 22 April 2024 MESSAGE

Two days ago, I discussed the prime of a man, the time when things are at their brightest, and I said that it is possible for someone to miss his flood. What should a fellow do if he or she has missed his or her flood? If a person has not made good use of his or her flood period, is there any way out before the night falls? If God is keenly interested in such a fellow, He will assist him or her to do one or two things that will turn the situation around.

Esau missed his flood when he sold his birthright. When the time came to get the generational blessing, he missed that one too. Genesis 27:34 says that He wept bitterly. Esau repented and cried to his father, saying, “Can’t I get just a leftover blessing?” God saw that his repentance was genuine and that his request for just a little bit of blessing was a passionate cry. As God is rich in mercy, He gave him the grace to recover some of the lost grounds. After Esau left his father, he made up his mind to make the best of the little blessing he got from him and prove everybody wrong. By the time we get to Genesis 32:3-7, Jacob sent some animals as gifts through some servants to tell Esau that he was coming home. Those people returned to tell Jacob that Esau was coming with 400 bodyguards to meet him, and the Bible recorded that Jacob trembled with fear. The one who got the original blessing trembled when the one who got the leftover approached him. By the time we get to Genesis 33:1-9, when they finally met, Esau asked Jacob why he sent all those animals and told him that he already had enough. Esau was so blessed that he asked Jacob to keep his possessions. He was indirectly saying, “I might have missed my flood, but as long as I am still breathing, I can still work my way to the top.”

You might have also missed your flood, but as long as you are still breathing, it is not too late. You can work your way to the top if you are determined to do so with God’s help.

Don’t give up on yourself. There are people who became successful in their old age. They may be few, but you can be one of the few. What you need is an undying determination and the grace of God.

Open Heaven 22 April 2024 PRAYER POINT

Father, I am determined to recover the grounds I have lost. Please give me the grace to do so, in Jesus’ name.

Open Heaven 22 April 2024 HYMN 5 – Blessed Assurance

1 Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine;
Oh, what a foretaste of glory divine!
Heir of salvation, purchase of God,
Born of His Spirit, washed in His blood.

This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.
This is my story, this is my song,
Praising my Savior all the day long.

2 Perfect submission, perfect delight,
Visions of rapture now burst on my sight;
Angels descending, bring from above
Echoes of mercy, whispers of love.

3 Perfect submission, all is at rest,
I in my Savior am happy and blest;
Watching and waiting, looking above,
Filled with His goodness, lost in His love
