Open Heaven 8 July 2022 TOPIC: Top Up Your Fuel Tank
MEMORISE: “And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.” – Mark 6:31 (KJV)
READ: Mark 6:30-32 (KJV)
30 And the apostles gathered themselves together unto Jesus, and told him all things, both what they had done, and what they had taught.
31 And he said unto them, Come ye yourselves apart into a desert place, and rest a while: for there were many coming and going, and they had no leisure so much as to eat.
32 And they departed into a desert place by ship privately.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalms 102-103
Open Heaven 8 July 2022 MESSAGE:
One major thing about how a car works is the fact that cars need a constant supply of fuel to keep running. It does not matter how much fuel is in the tank; after it has run for a while, the fuel will be exhausted, and then it would not be able to run until the tank is refilled. Similarly, there is always a need for you to refill after you have given out so much. After expending a lot of energy, you need to go aside, rest and eat to regain strength. In memory verse for today, Jesus told the disciples to go aside, and rest after their strenuous evangelism trip.
The reason many men of God are becoming less effective is that they don’t rest. There are many people always thronging them because of the anointing, but if they don’t get adequate rest, they would break down. You may be very anointed, but you are still flesh and blood. Even Jesus Christ was so tired that He went to the inner part of the ship where no one could disturb Him and slept through a storm (Mark 4:37-38).
Sometimes, you also need to refill your anointing tank. After many major miracles that Jesus did, He went aside to the mountain to pray (Matthew 14:16-23). I told one of my sons one day to take things easy because he was attending so many programmes with little time for him to refill. He looked at me in a funny way, as if to say, “But l see you also working just as hard”. I had to point his attention to the fact that l have only very few engagements in a certain period of every year, especially when we fast in the Redeemed Christian Church of God. You don’t see me traveling during these periods. If l must minister somewhere, it would be close to my base because l am refilling my tank. If you don’t refill the anointing and goes dry, the people will notice and then you would realize that it is not really you they love, it is the anointing you carry.
Every car mechanic will tell you that it is dangerous to run your car on an empty tank. If you do, the fuel pump would suck up some debris and that can cause serious damage to your car. Don’t run around empty. When you don’t take time to refill your energy or anointing tank, you are endangering your life.
Open Heaven 8 July 2022 ACTION POINT:
Always take out time to refill your tank, whether it is knowledge, anointing, energy or whatever you expend.
Open Heaven 8 July 2022 HYMN 3: Deeper Deeper In The Love Of Jesus
1 Deeper, deeper in the love of Jesus
Daily let me go;
Higher, higher in the school of wisdom,
More of grace to know.
Oh, deeper yet, I pray,
And higher ev’ry day,
And wiser, blessed Lord,
In Thy precious, holy word.
2 Deeper, deeper! Blessed Holy Spirit,
Take me deeper still,
Till my life is wholly lost in Jesus,
And His perfect will.
3 Deeper, deeper! Tho’ it cost hard trials,
Deeper let me go!
Rooted in the holy love of Jesus,
Let me fruitful grow.
4 Deeper, higher ev’ry day in Jesus,
Till all conflict past,
Finds me conqu’ror,
And in His own image
Perfected at last.
