Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – FOCUSING ON JESUS 1

Topic: FOCUSING ON JESUS 1 (Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019)

Memorise: Hebrews 12:2 King James Version (KJV)

Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Read: Hebrews 12:1-3 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019 MESSAGE:

Have you ever wondered why the Bible admonishes us to keep looking unto Jesus? The answer lies in our memory verse He is the Author and Finisher of our faith. In other words, our faith is based on Him and on what He is capable of doing for and through us. No wonder Apostle Paul declared in Philippians 4:13

“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

The discovery of this truth should convince every child of God of how important it is to focus on the One who alone can help us accomplish what is humanly difficult or impossible to do. There are many reasons why we should focus on Jesus as we journey through the wilderness of this world, one being that He is the perfect image of God. Colossians 1:14-15 says these about Him:

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:”

As the image of the invisible God, He stands as the perfect representation of who we are meant to be in this world.
Speaking on this truth in 1 John 4:17 , the Holy Spirit says:

“”Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.””

In other words, the knowledge of who we are as partakers of Gods divine nature only becomes clearer when we focus
on Jesus, and this enables us to manifest the glory of who we really are. Genesis 1:26 tells us that man was created to have dominion. However, this dominion was lost when man fell into sin. To restore us to our rightful place, Jesus Christ was made the last Adam. He declared in Matthew 28:18 :

“”All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.””

Do you know that He is ready to give this power to whosoever desires and will look up to Him for it? He demonstrated this while He was here on earth, as seen in Luke 9:1

“”Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.””

You cannot give what you do not have. Because Jesus Christ possesses all power, authority and dominion, He was able to give power to His disciples, and He is still capable of giving it to those who would accept Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. Looking elsewhere for power is a waste of time because genuine power belongs to Jesus, and He gives it to those who answer His call to salvation. Have you answered this call? Keep your focus on Him.

KEY POINT:
How much time daily do you spend meditating on Jesus?

Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019

Sing Hy0mn 8: My faith looks up to Thee

1 My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Savior divine!
Now hear me while I pray,
take all my guilt away;
O let me from this day
be wholly Thine.

2 May Thy rich grace impart
strength to my fainting heart,
my zeal inspire;
as Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee
pure, warm, and changeless be,
a living fire.

3 While life’s dark maze I tread,
and griefs around me spread,
be Thou my guide;
bid darkness turn to day,
wipe sorrow’s tears away,
nor let me ever stray
from Thee aside.

4 When ends life’s transient dream,
when death’s cold, sullen stream
shall o’er me roll,
blest Savior, then in love,
fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
a ransomed soul.

Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019 Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, one of the largest evangelical church in the world and also the President of Christ the Redeemer’s Ministries. The life of Enoch Adejare Adeboye is a fulfilment of the scriptures in Zechariah 4: 10 which declare, “despise not the days of small beginnings”. Born in 1942 into a humble family in the village of Ifewara, Osun State located in the South-western part of Nigeria Enoch Adeboye often humorously states that his family was so poor that even the poor people called them poor. As a matter of fact, he unashamedly tells his congregation that he never owned shoes until he was eighteen years of age. What he possessed though were physical intangibles such as focus, consistency, diligence, ambition, a brilliant mind and a determination to succeed in life.

In 1956 Enoch Adeboye was admitted into Ilesha Grammar School, Ilesha, Osun State, Western Nigeria and as a youth he discovered a passion for books, and an aptitude for science and in particular the field of Mathematics. This led to an academic journey in the field of Mathematics against incredible odds including but not limited to finances, the Nigerian Civil War and academic politics. By the time he was done, Enoch Adeboye had obtained not only a Bachelors (BSc.) degree in Mathematics from the University of Nigeria, Nnsukka, Nigeria in 1967, but also a Masters (MSc.) Degree in Hydrodynamics and a Doctorate Degree (PhD) in Applied Mathematics, both from the University of Lagos, Lagos, Nigeria in 1969 and 1975 respectively.

One of the motivations for these academic achievements was Enoch Adeboye’s passionate desire to become the youngest Vice-Chancellor (University President) of any one of the frontline Universities in Nigeria. It did seem that his academic ambition would be realized as his academic career flourished. However, this was not to be as a greater career awaited him in the service of the Lord. In 1967 Enoch Adeboye got married to his beloved wife Foluke Adenike Adeboye (nee Adeyokunnu). Open heavens 2019 Friday 1 March 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – FOCUSING ON JESUS 1
