Topic: Standing Before Kings [Teens Open Heavens 6 August 2018]

Memorise: And David came to Saul, and stood before him; and he loved him greatly; and he became his armour bearer. 1 Samuel 16:21

Read: 1 Samuel 16:21-22 (KJV)

Bible In One Year: Psalm 78, Romans 7

MESSAGE:

Divine favour has a lot to do with favour that is unmerited. It is something God gives to His children, who love Him. Divine favour can prevent a downward trend in your life when God decides to shine His face on you. Is failure and disappointment staring you in the face? Call on Jesus to arrest that negative trend by His mercy. You shall not be put to shame in Jesus’ name. Put all of your trust in Jesus and with your whole heart ask for His favour. He will answer you speedily this season.

Another important point to note is that divine favour can bring the poor before kings. Favour can bring the least before the greatest even as the qualified are side-lined. As a child of God, favour can take you places where your parents never even dreamed of. It is important to note that the only way you can get this kind of favour is when you have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Work on it today, and you will see the wonderful rewards that come with knowing Him personally.

Key Point: There are uncountable benefits for you when you cultivate a sound and blossoming relationship with Jesus Christ.

Teens Open Heavens 6 August 2018 Hymn 6:

1. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home:

2. Under the shadow of your throne
Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is your arm alone,
And our defense is sure

3. Before the hills in order stood
Or earth received its frame,
From everlasting you are God,
To endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in your sight
Are like an evening gone
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5. Time, like an ever rolling stream,
Soon bears us all away;
We fly forgotten, as a dream
Does at the opening day.

6. Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home!
