Open Heaven, RCCG Daily Devotional, Sunday June 28, 2020: Divine enablement and diligence & Prayer Points for 28 June

Topic: Divine enablement and diligence

By Pastor E. A. Adeboye


Memorise: So then it is not of him that willeth, nor of him that runneth, but of God that sheweth mercy. – Romans 9:16


Read: Psalms 127:1-5 (KJV)


1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.


2 It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.


3 Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.


4 As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth.


5 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

Bible in One Year: 1 Kings 22, 2 Chronicles 18

Open Heaven 28 June 2020 Sunday MESSAGE:


Many people think they can succeed by their strength but this always leads to failure in their life’s pursuits. Our Bible reading for today is directly passing an eternal truth to us, that God is the secret of our prosperity.


The Bible says further:


“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” – Deuteronomy 8:18


Looking through the lives of Biblical heroes, you would find some human frailty in each, like the ‘perfect’ Noah who became drunk to the point of casting a curse upon his own child.


Our Lord Jesus Christ said in John 14:6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”


It is equally written that the Holy Spirit assigns and empowers us to perform some specific assignments (1 Corinthians 12:6).


However, we must not be lazy under the guise that it is God who will work through us. While it is true that He works in us, we must be diligent and obsessed with soul winning no matter what it may cost. The Holy Spirit crowned Paul’s efforts with success by granting him divine enablement but we must also note that he was very diligent and obsessed with soul winning. Diligence encapsulates executing your assignments with care, consistence, vigour and at the right time. Obsession is an excessive devotion to someone or something, to the point of personal loss, injury, or death. Obsession made Paul go as far as he did, teaching his children-in-the-Lord to do likewise. To Timothy he wrote:


“Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.” – 2 Timothy 4:2


I pray that the Almighty God will grant you the enablement to achieve His purpose for your life in the matchless name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 28 June 2020 Sunday Prayer Point:


Father, please give me the enablement to do all that you require of me, in the mighty name of Jesus.

Open Heaven 28 June 2020 Sunday Hymn 29: What a Friend we have in Jesus


What a Friend we have in Jesus,

All our sins and griefs to bear!

What a privilege to carry

Everything to God in prayer!

O what peace we often forfeit,

O what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry

Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?

Is there trouble anywhere?

We should never be discouraged,

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Can we find a friend so faithful

Who will all our sorrows share?

Jesus knows our every weakness,

Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,

Cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge—

Take it to the Lord in prayer;

Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?

Take it to the Lord in prayer;

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,

Thou wilt find a solace there.

Special note:

Beloved Reader, if you are yet to give your life to Christ Jesus, I would advise you to do so before you continue in this reading. Remember! The Lord Jesus in John 3:3 says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless ye are born again, ye cannot see the kingdom of God.”

And remember there is nothing like once born again, you remain born again forever. Examine yourself on regular basis. If you are ready to give your life to Christ Jesus, please pray the displayed prayer below in faith:

Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept You as my Lord and Personal Saviour. I believe in my heart You died and rose from the dead to save me. I confess all my sin, have mercy on me, forgive me all sin, give grace to go and sin no more. Thank You Lord for saving me, in Jesus name Amen.
