Open heavens 2019 Friday 18 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – DIVINELY SATISFIED?

Topic: DIVINELY SATISFIED? (Open heavens 2019 Friday 18 January 2019)

Memorise: 1 Timothy 6:8 King James Version (KJV)

And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

Read1 Timothy 6:6-10 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

But godliness with contentment is great gain.
For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.
10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

Bible in One Year: Mark 7:1-37, Mark 8:1-38, Isaiah 15:1-9, Isaiah 16:1-14 Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

Open heavens 2019 Friday 18 January 2019 MESSAGE:

Contrary to common belief, satisfaction in life is not a matter of how much you have. Our Lord Jesus Christ said in Luke 12:15 :

“…Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a mans life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.”

In other words, abundant possessions do not guarantee joy, peace or fulfilment in life. The Lord is asking you today, Are you divinely satisfied? What is your satisfaction in life dependent on? The reason why a lot of people are never satisfied in life is due to the lack of contentment.

In today’s memory verse, the Holy Spirit instructs us to be content with having food and clothing. This is a command and not a piece of advice. To measure up to this heavenly standard, we must endeavour to discover what true blessing is and the source of it. Concerning true blessing, Proverbs 10:22 says:

“The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.”

True blessings from the Lord have three characteristics: they bring riches in all ramifications, they are devoid of sorrow and are accompanied with contentment.

Irrespective of what a man has, if he is not content, he will restlessly pursue satisfaction throughout his lifetime. The Almighty God, in whose image we were created, is a great example to us on contentment. :2 says:

“And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.”

From the scripture above, we learn that God saw everything that he had made as being very good. In other words, God was content with what He had achieved in six days.

This divine satisfaction made Him take a rest on the seventh day! We know that God continued His work after He rested on the seventh day because Jesus Christ said in John 5:17 b:

“My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.”

The secret behind God resting on the seventh day even though He still had more work to do is not far-fetched: God was content with His achievements. This is why the Bible says in 1 Timothy 6:6

“But godliness with contentment is great gain.”

This verse shows that one may be godly but not have contentment.

Beloved, when we become obsessed with work because we want to acquire more wealth to the detriment of our worship of God and even to the point of harming our body system, then we have fallen into the snare of the devil described in 1 Timothy 6: 9. Are you divinely satisfied?

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please grant me the grace to live a life of godliness with contentment

Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Friday 18 January 2019

Sing Hymn 7: MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS

1. My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

2. When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale
My anchor holds within the veil.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

3. His oath, His covenant, and blood
Support me in the whelming flood;
When every earthly prop gives way,
He then is all my Hope and Stay.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

4. When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found,
Clothed in His righteousness alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne!
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand.

Open heavens 2019 Friday 18 January 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 18 January 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye – DIVINELY SATISFIED?
