Open heavens 2019 Thursday 2 May 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye –PROSPERITY: BY WHAT MEANS?

Topic: PROSPERITY: BY WHAT MEANS? (Open heavens 2019 Thursday 2 May 2019)

Memorise: Proverbs 15:27 King James Version (KJV)

27 He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live.

Read: Proverbs 1:17-19 King James Version (KJV) Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

17 Surely in vain the net is spread in the sight of any bird.
18 And they lay wait for their own blood; they lurk privily for their own lives.
19 So are the ways of every one that is greedy of gain; which taketh away the life of the owners thereof.

Bible in One Year: Genesis 44-45, Jeremiah 29 Open heavens 2019 Daily Devotional by Pastor E A Adeboye

Open heavens 2019 Thursday 2 May 2019 MESSAGE:

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”

Psalms 35:27 While it is an incontrovertible truth that God wants the righteous to prosper, He does not want them to prosper by any unrighteous means. Unfortunately, in the world today, many people want to get rich quick with minimal effort, and more often than not, they resort to stealing in one form or the other to achieve this. Being a thief himself, the devil aids such people in their enterprise, and some of them become very prosperous. When some children of God see this prosperity, they are tempted to apply the devils methods. This is a slippery slope every child of God must avoid because it leads to destruction (Psalms 73: 1-3, Psalms 73:17-18 ).

Exodus 22:2-3 reveals what God thinks about thieves, and one of His cardinal commandments says, Thou shalt not steal (Exodus 20:15 ). God is not only against stealing, He is also against those who support and encourage stealing. Proverbs 29:24 says that whosoever is a partner of thieves hates his own soul. In other words, if you want to prosper in the real sense of the word, dont be a friend to thieves. There are many thieves in the world today, stealing from their places of work and even from God. I urge you not to align with such people. Jeremiah 17:11 reveals what happens to the prosperity gotten through fraudulent means, saying:

“As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.”

Prosperity is not meant for liars; nor is it for those who use fake measures or doctored invoices (Proverbs 11:1 ). Some contractors would be asked to buy 20 bags of cement for a project, and they would either buy 10 or use 10 out of the 20 purchased for their personal project. In the same vein, prosperity is not for the greedy. According to todays Bible reading, the greedy can even kill for money, but they do not know that they are troubling their own lives by their greed. Just as declared in todays memory verse, we see several families in the world today devastated by greed. Furthermore, prosperity is not for the lazy (Proverbs 6:6-11 ).

Laziness is an act of unrighteousness, and it makes a person susceptible to sins like stealing (Romans 12: 11, Ephesians 4:28 ). Lastly, prosperity is not for drunkards and gluttons, neither is it for those who are given to a life of seeking pleasure (Proverbs 23: 21, Proverbs 21:17 ). Beloved, although God wants you to prosper, He wants you to go about it in the right way so that your prosperity does not become a curse to you and your household. Are you seeking prosperity through just means?

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please prosper the labour of my hands so that i can have enough to give to others.

Hymnal: Open heavens 2019 Thursday 2 May 2019

Sing Hymn 10: I Have Decided to Follow Jesus

I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
I have decided to follow Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
The world behind me, the cross before me;
No turning back, no turning back.

Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
Though none go with me, still I will follow;
No turning back, no turning back.

My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
My cross I’ll carry, till I see Jesus;
No turning back, no turning back.

Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
Will you decide now to follow Jesus?
No turning back, no turning back.

Open heavens 2019 Thursday 2 May 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).
