Topic: On Motion [Teens’ Open Heavens Friday 9th, February 2018]

Memorise: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. – Isaiah 40:31

Read: Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.

29 He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.

30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:

31 But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Bible In One Year: Leviticus 7-9, Matthew 25:31-46


MESSAGE:

There are seven categories of motion. The first is the total stagnation which indicates a state of no motion. In Mark 2:1-12, we read of a paralyzed man who could not do anything for himself except someone else helped him. He was in a state of total stagnation. This is the worst state of motion. Some people are in that state of motion and no matter how much effort they make, the situation remains the same. In other words, it appears there is nothing they can do to change their situation. If you are in this state, the Lord will reach out to you in Jesus’ name.

Crawling is the next category of motion after stagnancy. At this stage, there is motion, but it is very limited and slow. Are you experiencing slow progress? If you study so hard, but your grades remain low, then you are crawling. If what takes others one year to achieve takes you two years, then you are crawling. I speak forth divine speed into your motion. You shall make quick progress henceforth in Jesus’ name.

Prayer Point: Every evil tie to my negative past hindering my progress, be broken in Jesus’ name

Hymn 5:

1. Onward, Christian soldiers,
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!
Christ, the Royal Master,
Leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See His banners go!

Chorus
Onward, Christian soldiers!
Marching as to war,
With the cross of Jesus
Going on before!

2. At the Sign of triumph
Satan’s host doth flee;
On, then, Christian soldiers,
On to victory!
Hell’s foundations quiver
At the shout of praise;
Brothers, lift your voices,
Loud your anthems raise!

3. Like a mighty army
Moves the Church of God;
Brothers, we are treading
Where the saints have trod;
We are not divided;
All one body we
One in hope and doctrine,
One in charity.

4. Onward, then, ye people,
Join our happy throng,
Blend with ours your voices
In the triumph song;
Glory, praise and honour,
Unto Christ the King;
This, thro’ countless ages
Men and angels sing.
