Teens’ Open Heavens 29 December 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Resist The Devil

Topic: Resist The Devil [Friday 29, December 2017]

Memorise: “Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”  – James 4:7

Read: James 1:12-16

12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

Bible In One Year: Revelation 12-14. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9: My Faith Has Found Resting A Place


The Bible presents the devil as the accuser of the brethren, he is also in the business of presenting God in a bad light to human beings at every opportunity he gets. He usually puts questions in the hearts of men in order to cast doubt on God’s acts of love towards humanity.

When you ask God questions, but still demonstrate faith in Him, it is okay. But when your questions do not reflect your past experiences of what you enjoyed from God’s mercies and faithfulness, you are already issuing God a query. Before a child of God issues out query to God, the fellow must have changed his view about God and how powerful He is, if not, he wouldn’t dare query God. Similarly, the one who would query God is in doubt of God’s love and good intentions. At such a time, he has believed the lies of the devil. Beloved, God loves you much more than anything else, He is the One who gave Himself for your salvation and washed you clean in His Blood. Believe His good intentions even when you do not understand. The One who died for you will not work against you when you are in a good relationship with Him. Never query God; it will worsen your situation.

Prayer Point: Father, please forgive me for all the queries I have issued through doubt in Jesus’ Name.

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.
