JOINT-HEIR, JOINT-SUFFERER

OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL.
FRIDAY 11TH MARCH 2016
THEME: JOINT-HEIR, JOINT SUFFERER
MEMORISE:
If we suffer, we shall also reign with
him: if we deny him, he also will
deny us.
2 Timothy 2:12
READ: Matthew 15:22-28
22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan
came out of the same coasts, and
cried unto him, saying, Have mercy
on me, O Lord, thou son of David;
my daughter is grievously vexed with
a devil.
23 But he answered her not a word.
And his disciples came and besought
him, saying, Send her away; for she
crieth after us.
24 But he answered and said, I am
not sent but unto the lost sheep of
the house of Israel.
25 Then came she and worshipped
him, saying, Lord, help me.
26 But he answered and said, It is
not meet to take the children’s
bread, and to cast it to dogs.
27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the
dogs eat of the crumbs which fall
from their masters’ table.
28 Then Jesus answered and said
unto her, O woman, great is thy
faith: be it unto thee even as thou
wilt. And her daughter was made
whole from that very hour.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 7:8-29
and Job 34:31-35:8
MESSAGE:
Have you compared yourself with
many other believers around you and
it seems that what you are going
through is very different from their
own experiences, and you are
beginning to ask God why me? I
congratulate you, because you are in
for a special testimony. What you are
going through is evidence that you
are a child of destiny and the devil is
all out to truncate it knowing what
you are to become. How do you
think Joseph felt when he was thrown
into the pit by his own brothers? He
was sold to the Egyptians before
finally landing in the house of
Potiphar, where everything was
committed into his hand. I am sure
he would have been consoled by this
and
would have thanked God that he was
finally in a safe place. Little did he
know that there was a new devil in
that house in the person of Mrs
Potiphar. For every new level in the
life of a child of God, there is always
a new devil, this is why I always
remind my children not to rest on
their success, and because that is the
time the devil will come and knock
you out. He watches for your
unguarded hour. When you see the
devil
fighting you at all corners, you should
know you are special to God. My
prayer is that Satan will never win
the battle over you in Jesus’ Name.
“When thou passeth through the
waters, I will be with thee; and
through the rivers, they shall not
overflow thee: when thou walkest
through the fire, thou shall not be
burned; neither shall the flame kindle
upon thee.” Isaiah 43:2
In this assurance you should rejoice
that despite the numerous tests and
trials you are going through and the
ones you will still go through, God is
with you. The level of suffering you
go through will also determine the
level of glory you will attain in God if
you don’t give in. The extent you are
prepared to go through for Christ is
also the extent to which you will
reign with Him.
“But he knoweth the way that I take;
when he hath tried me, I shall come
forth as gold”
Job 23:10
To a user of this devotional, I decree
in the Name that is above all names;
there will be a glorious testimony
from your present trials in Jesus’
Name. Continue to look unto Jesus,
the Alpha and the Omega and do not
allow the devil knock you down.
Believe that your tomorrow will be
alright and don’t let the present
situation nullify the permanent
promises of God for your life.
KEY POINT:
You are not a victim but a victor in
Christ Jesus.
