OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL (FOR TEENS)
DATE: THURSDAY FEBRUARY 6TH, 2020.
THEME: GOD CAN USE YOU TOO
MEMORISE: And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; Mark 16:17
READ: Mark 16:17-18
17. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18. They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Miracles are not exclusive to Pastors. Jesus Christ said:
*”And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;”*
This means that the moment you believe in Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Lord and Saviour, you too can perform miracles. Your age is not a determining factor. Samuel became a prophet as a child (1 Samuel 12:2). David killed Goliath when he was a teenager. When God is looking for someone to use, He does not consider the age, He considers the heart (1 Samuel 16:7). In fact, the older ones are the ones less likely to qualify because we have many worries on our minds and many formed mindsets. Teenagers on the other hand have less worries and are more flexible to take God by His word. As for us, the well known Pastors, people already expect miracles from us, so once in a while, God prefers to use the least expected, most likely a teenager, just to show that He is the One doing the miracles, not the man of God.
Do you want to be the teenager that God uses for signs and wonders? Then you need to stay close to Him. Study your Bible and pray everyday. When God sees that your heart is open to Him, He will use you for many great miracles.
You are not too young for God to use.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Exodus 39-40 ; Matthew 24:1-22
1.Take my life and let it be
Consecrated Lord to thee
Take my moment and days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
2.Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of thy love
Take my feet and them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
3.Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from thee.
4.Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
5.Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne,
6.Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At They feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
