OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL
DATE: THURSDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER 2020.
THEME: THE AGELESS GOD.
The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand for ever. Isaiah 40:8
READ: Hebrews 1:10-12
10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
Unlike everything and everyone else that grows old with age, God is the same forever; He doesn’t age. He will not grow older tomorrow, neither will he become weaker next year. He doesn’t even dwell in time, He dwells in eternity. Hebrews 13:8 says:
“ Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
He does not change. Though Jesus came into this world through the virgin Mary about two thousand years after Abraham was born, yet He said in John 8:58:
“……Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.”
He laid the foundation of the world and made the Heavens. This means He has been in existence before the earth and the Heavens were created and will still be after everything and everyone is gone (Psalm 102:25-27).
The never changing nature of God gives us the assurance that all His promises concerning us are yea and amen. It doesn’t matter how long-ago God made a promise to you; just hold on to it. He will bring it to pass.
For a long time after I became the General Overseer of the RCCG, I continued to remember the promises of God that he made to me. One of them was that I would lead a mighty end-time army in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. At the time, anyone could have doubted the fulfilment of the dream because the Church was not growing. thank God I held on to the promises; today, they are being fulfilled one after the other.
Hold on to God’s word concerning you. It may appear time is running out, but never give room to doubt. It will not tarry, His time is not yours.
“For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry.” Habakkuk 2:3
God does not change and He is not a man that He should lie (Numbers 23:19). Rest assured, He will fulfil all His promises to you, in the mighty name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezra 7-10.

HYMN 14: IMMORTAL, INVISIBLE, GOD ONLY WISE.
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.
Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice like mountains high soaring above
Thy clouds which are fountains of goodness and love.
To all life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish, but nought changeth Thee.
Great Father of Glory, pure Father of Light
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
All laud we would render, O help us to see:
'Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee.
