BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 36-38

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Over the past two days, I discussed the need for you to live righteously and make a habit of praising God if you want it to be well with you this new year.

Today, I will look at prayer as one more spiritual activity that you must take very seriously in this new year so that it can be well with you.

It is obvious that things are getting tougher as we approach the end time. The consolation, however, is the Lord’s assurance in Joel 2:32, where He says,

“And it shall come pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered…”

In the book of Judges, the Bible says that the children of Israel did evil in the sight of the Lord, and consequently, the Midianites terrorised them for seven years (Judges 6:1-2).

However, when the children of Israel came to the realisation that it was the Lord that was punishing them because of their sins, they cried to Him in prayers.

The Lord answered and delivered them from their troubles just as He will answer you today, in Jesus’ name.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

2 Chronicles 7:14

Beloved, for it to be well with you in this new year, you must repair your altar of prayer and be ready to pray earnestly to the Lord.

Jesus promised all His followers who believe in Him that if they should ask anything in His name, He will do it (John 14:14).

What then are you waiting for? Pray to God now and continue to pray to Him until He causes a complete turnaround in every negative situation you might be experiencing.

The Lord is ready to answer the prayers of His children this year if only they can pray. It shall be well with you as you spend quality time praying to God this year, in Jesus’ name.

Prayer Point

Father, let it be well with me this year, in Jesus’ name.

HYMN 22:– Sweet Hour of Prayer

1. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! 

that calls me from a world of care, 

and bids me at my Father’s throne 

make all my wants and wishes known. 

In seasons of distress and grief, 

my soul has often found relief, 

and oft escaped the tempter’s snare 

by thy return, sweet hour of prayer! 

2. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! 

the joys I feel, the bliss I share 

of those whose anxious spirits burn 

with strong desires for thy return! 

With such I hasten to the place 

where God my Savior shows his face, 

and gladly take my station there, 

and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer! 

3. Sweet hour of prayer! sweet hour of prayer! 

thy wings shall my petition bear 

to him whose truth and faithfulness 

engage the waiting soul to bless. 

And since he bids me seek his face, 

believe his word, and trust his grace, 

I’ll cast on him my every care, 

and wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer!

TOPIC: It Shall Be Well 2

MEMORISE:"Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee." Psalm 67:5

READ: Psalm 67:5-7(KJV)

5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.

6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.

7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 32-35

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Yesterday, I declared that it shall be well with the children of God this year, and so shall it be in the mighty name of Jesus.

There are, however, certain things you must do intentionally in order to have a manifestation of this blessing in your life. One of them is to praise God at all times.

Our Bible reading today says that the earth will yield its increase unto you when you praise God.

When you learn to praise Him with all of your heart and strength, everything on the earth will work together to ensure you have all-round success.

The story in 2 Chronicles 20:20-24 is a pointer to the efficacy of praise when directed to the only One that deserves it – The Almighty God.

When you praise the Almighty God, He will rise to fight your battles for you. Your enemies will be defeated, and people will rejoice with you.

The psalmist in our text today seemed to pray that God should grant the people the grace to praise Him. This is because only God enables people to do anything for Him (Philippians 2:13).

Everything we do for God is by His grace – even when we praise Him. Also, God encourages people to praise Him by doing seemingly impossible things for them.

I pray that the Almighty God will do something spectacular in your life this year that will cause you to sing and dance for joy. Your dancing will be constant this year, in Jesus’ name.

Years ago, the Lord told us in a service that we should praise Him and not ask for anything at all. There was a woman who came with a serious health condition.

As a result of this, she was not satisfied with the way the service was going that day, so she approached the then Deputy General Overseer of blessed memory, Pa J. H. Abiona, for prayers.

Papa told her that the General Overseer said that we should only praise God and not ask for anything. The woman reluctantly joined everyone else to praise the Lord. As she started praising God, she received her healing.

I enjoin you to cultivate the habit of praising God in an unusual way this year, and it shall truly be well with you, in Jesus’ name.

Key Point

When we praise God, we attract showers of divine blessings.

HYMN 17:– Praise My Soul the King of Heaven

1 Praise, my soul, the King of heaven;

to his feet your tribute bring.

Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven,

evermore his praises sing.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Praise the everlasting King!

2 Praise him for his grace and favor

to his people in distress.

Praise him, still the same as ever,

slow to chide, and swift to bless.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Glorious in his faithfulness!

3 Fatherlike he tends and spares us;

well our feeble frame he knows.

In his hand he gently bears us,

rescues us from all our foes.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Widely yet his mercy flows!

4 Angels, help us to adore him;

you behold him face to face.

Sun and moon, bow down before him,

dwellers all in time and space.

Alleluia, alleluia!

Praise with us the God of grace!

TOPIC: It Shall Be Well 1

MEMORISE:"The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon." Psalm 92:12

READ: Isaiah 3:10 (KJV)

10 Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 26-28

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

The old year has just passed with all its ups and downs. There is a tendency to think that things will remain the same or even become worse based on man’s projections and forecasts.

However, according to our Bible reading today, I speak into your life and declare that, “It shall be well with you!”

As assuring as this prophetic message from the Lord is, we must not lose sight of the truth embedded in our Bible reading: it is the righteous that will be singled out for wellness.

Our memory verse for today affirms this as well.

Beloved, I encourage you to live righteously in this new year if you want it to be well with you, your family, your business, your finances, and everything that concerns you.

One question you might, however, be asking yourself is, “How can one be righteous in this perverse generation when the Bible says in Romans 3:23 that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God?”

The answer to this question is very simple; the Bible tells us in 1 John 1:9 that if we confess our sins, God will forgive us, and the blood of Jesus Christ, His only begotten Son, will cleanse us from all sin.

Isaiah 64:6 also says:

But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

The above scriptures establish the truth that we cannot cleanse ourselves and become acceptable to God by our own efforts; only the righteousness of God, which is obtainable through Jesus Christ, who died for our sins, is acceptable to God (Philippians 3:3-9).

Truly, many forecasts have projected that the year may be challenging, but I assure you that those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under His shadow (Psalm 91:1), and they will be shielded from any evil that may be lurking ahead.

The Bible, however, clearly says that God cannot behold iniquity (Habakkuk 1:13). This implies that you must have the righteousness of God through Christ if you want to access the secret place of the Most High.

As you surrender your life to Jesus and walk in His righteousness all through this year and beyond, I decree once again that all shall be well with you.

Key Point

Those who dwell in the secret place of the Most High will enjoy all-round well-ness for the rest of their lives.

HYMN 29:– When peace, like a river, attendeth my way

1 When peace like a river attendeth my way,

when sorrows like sea billows roll;

whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to say,

“It is well, it is well with my soul.”

Refrain (may be sung after final stanza only):

It is well with my soul;

it is well, it is well with my soul.

2 Though Satan should buffet, though trials should come,

let this blest assurance control:

that Christ has regarded my helpless estate,

and has shed his own blood for my soul. Refrain

3 My sin oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!

my sin, not in part, but the whole,

is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more;

praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul! Refrain

4 O Lord, haste the day when my faith shall be sight,

the clouds be rolled back as a scroll;

the trump shall resound and the Lord shall descend;

even so, it is well with my soul. Refrain 

Open Heaven For Today 2024 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – New Year Resolution 7

Click HERE for Previous Open Heaven Devotional

TOPIC: New Year Resolution 7

MEMORISE:"Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." 1 Peter 1:16

READ: Ezekiel 14:6-8 (KJV)

6 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God; Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols; and turn away your faces from all your abominations.

7 For every one of the house of Israel, or of the stranger that sojourneth in Israel, which separateth himself from me, and setteth up his idols in his heart, and putteth the stumblingblock of his iniquity before his face, and cometh to a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the Lord will answer him by myself:

8 And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my people; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 26-28

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

Over the past six days, we have been studying some resolutions I made for this year, and I have been encouraging all users of this devotional to adopt them as well.

I have said that in my walk with God this year, I will worship Him, ask for His help, humble myself, give to Him, trust Him and draw close to Him more than ever before.

However, all these would be impossible to achieve if I do not make up my mind to live holy more than ever before.

This year, I am determined never to do anything that will offend God. I will live holy more than ever before!

Amos 3:3 says:

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?”

Please check how you have been living in the past years, do you think God will be happy to come close to you knowing fully well that His eyes cannot behold iniquity (Habakkuk 1:13)?

If you really want to get close to God, and you want Him to solve all your problems this year, then you must repent of all your sins and forsake them.

Don’t continue to live in sin and expect God’s help.

Shall we continue in sin and expect God’s grace to abound? Apostle Paul’s response to that question was, “God forbid!” (Romans 6:1-2). Grace is God’s help, and it cannot abound upon a sinner.

All your seeds, worship, prayers, and so on that you have decided to do this year will be wasted if you do not live a holy life.

In other words, if you do not want all your efforts to live by these resolutions this year to be fruitless, you must live holy.

God does not hear the prayer of sinners (Psalm 66:18), neither does He accept their sacrifices (Isaiah 59:1-2).

Beloved, for all the resolutions we studied over the past six days to produce the desired result, you must be deliberate about living holy more than ever before this year and beyond.

This year, I will not only love righteousness more, but will also hate iniquity more. That way, God will anoint me even much more than ever before (Hebrews 1:9).

The Almighty God will grant you all-round success as you make up your mind to live holy and also adopt all the other resolutions we discussed over the past six days, in Jesus’ name.

Action Point

Determine to live holy more than ever before this year.

HYMN 23:– Take My Life, and Let It Be

1 Take my life and let it be

consecrated, Lord, to thee.

Take my moments and my days;

let them flow in endless praise,

let them flow in endless praise.

2 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,

swift and beautiful for thee.

3 Take my voice and let me sing

always, only, for my King.

Take my lips and let them be

filled with messages from thee,

filled with messages from thee.

4 Take my silver and my gold;

not a mite would I withhold.

Take my intellect and use

every power as thou shalt choose,

every power as thou shalt choose.

5 Take my will and make it thine;

it shall be no longer mine.

Take my heart it is thine own;

it shall be thy royal throne,

it shall be thy royal throne.

6 Take my love; my Lord, I pour

at thy feet its treasure store.

Take myself, and I will be

ever, only, all for thee,

ever, only, all for thee.

TOPIC: New Year Resolution 5

MEMORISE:"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." Psalm 118:8

READ: Jeremiah 17:5-8 (KJV)

5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.

6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.

7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.

8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 21-23

Open Heaven For Today 2023 MESSAGE

My fifth resolution is that this year, I am going to be very deliberate about putting all my trust in God, and none in man. I will do so because God said,

“Vain is the help of man” (Psalm 60:11). You may have discovered that several of the people you thought will help you have let you down, but there is a God who never fails, and He will not fail you this year.

I went to my village in the 1980s after I had just become the General Overseer of the RCCG, and someone said to me, 

“Now that you are the General Overseer, you will need a befitting house to host dignitaries that may have cause to visit you here, especially when you have one ceremony or the other”.

I agreed with him, and he said he would help me to build the house. He told me that he produces blocks, so he will supply me with all the blocks I’ll need to build the house, and I can pay him for them whenever I can afford to.

I believed God was behind it all, and I was very happy.

Beloved, when somebody offers you help, check first with God to be sure it’s from Him.

I built the house, and the very day I roofed it, he asked me to pay for all the blocks he had supplied. I was shocked.

This man had said that I could pay anytime I had the money. I had just roofed the house and hadn’t even put doors or windows! Deep within me, I was sorrowful.

I said to God, 

“Lord, you know I have never done anything that I cannot handle; it was this man who lured me into this. Please have mercy on me, don’t let me be put to shame.” 

I prayed all night and fell asleep at my desk.

When I woke up, there was a man standing at my doorstep. He said he came all the way from the north, and that God told him to give me an envelope.

I collected the envelope, prayed for him, and he left. After he left, I opened the envelope; it was the exact amount that I was owing!

There is a God who is the ever-present help in times of trouble. This year, He is ready to help you, but you must put all your trust in Him.


When you have a problem, who do you ask for help, God or man? Your answer shows whom you trust more.

HYMN 30:– When we walk with the Lord

1. When we walk with the Lord,

In the light of His word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will

He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.


Trust and obey!

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

But to trust and obey.

2. But we never can prove

The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay,

For the favour He shows

And the joy He bestows

Are for them who will trust and obey. [Refrain]

3. Then in fellowship sweet

We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,

What He says we will do,

Where He sends we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey. [Refrain]
