Open Heaven For Teens 10 April 2022: Who Not To Follow
TOPIC: Who Not To Follow [Open Heaven for Teens 10 April 2022]
MEMORISE: Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil; neither shalt thou speak in a cause to decline after many to wrest judgment: Exodus 23:2
READ: Psalms 1:1
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Luke 12:35-59 , 1 Samuel 4-6
There is a popular saying that goes, “The voice of the people is the voice of God” which literally means that the opinion of the majority is right and acceptable. However, this has been proven to be wrong because many times, counsel, opinions and advice stem from sentiments, norms, unbelief et cetera. If you want to fulfil Gods mandate for your life, you must be careful whom you associate with or follow on social media.
There are many people who gave up on their dreams and aspirations; some became impatient and lost their miracle and as a result, they go about struggling and discouraging others. They tell you that God cannot do what He has promised or there is nothing good about the future; from these people, run! Those who paint wrong pictures about God because they failed to wait on Him and ask you to look for alternatives should be avoided. If you continue to mingle with them, their fate will become your reality too.
Examine yourself today, check your circle of friends and mentors. Find out those who are leading you into error and separate yourself from them.
Follow those who are Heaven-conscious.
HYMN: I Am Thine O Lord
- I am Thine, O Lord,
I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise
in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer,
nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer,
nearer, nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
- Consecrate me now to
Thy service, Lord,
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up
with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.
- Oh, the pure delight
of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer,
and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!
- There are depths of love
that I cannot know
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy
that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
