Open Heavens for Teens daily devotional by Pastor Adeboye is here. The RCCG Open Heavens For Teen is published to transform & connect teens to Christ. Read and share with someone.
The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Sunday 13 Th August 2023 Is “Avoid Violence”
Read: Colossians 3:8-10
8 But now ye also put off all these; anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy communication out of your mouth.
9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Memorise: Hebrews 12:14
Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord:
Violence is a serious weakness that reflects a fellow’s lack of self-control. It doesn’t stand alone, but it has siblings, as written in our text for today. A violent person is angry, full of malice, speaks rashly and curses a lot. Such people share a resemblance with their father – satan, the originator of violence. Research has shown that violent teenagers picked up the violent trait from parents who have issues with power, control and manipulation. Clearly, this is not an attribute of God.
Dear son/daughter, are you currently in an abusive relationship, hoping the person will change? I command you to break free in the name of Jesus. You are not the changer, only the Holy Spirit can do that. The Bible says in Proverbs 22:24-25:
“Make no friendship with an angry man: and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul”.
For you to remain sane, you must cultivate a peaceful environment always. Run away from situations where violence or fighting may cause you to be physically or emotionally injured.
Which Old Testament book does not
contain the word “God?”
Violence is never a justifiable response to provocation.
HYMN 5 – Take My Life And Let It Be
Take my life and let it
Consecrated Lord to Thee
Take my moment and my days
Let them flow ceaseless praise.
Take my hands and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love
Take my feet and let them be
Swift and beautiful for thee
Take my voice and let me sing
Always only for my king;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
Take my sliver and my gold
Not a mite would I withhold
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as thou shalt choose.
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,
Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for thee
