Open Heaven

22 May Open Heaven

MEMORIZE: That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death; Philipians 3:10

TEXT: EXODUS 5:1-8

Generally, ignorance kills. It is however even more lethal when people do not know God. Such people could fall into the hands of God just as Nebuchadnezzar did (Daniel 4:33). Pharaoh was reluctant to free the Israelites because he was ignorant of God’s power (Exodus 5:2), yet that was not enough to excuse him and his kingdom from God’s judgement. God will never accept ignorance as an excuse for disobedience to His will.

Knowledge however, is power, more so the knowledge of the Most High God. It is the ultimate power. How do we know God to the extent that we can draw maximum benefits from Him? How do we avoid walking contrary to His will? God is the source of both temporal and eternal blessings. To know Him, you must first know Jesus. Matthew 11:27 says:

Read yesterday’s Open Heaven here

“All things are delivered unto me of my Father; and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. “Knowing Jesus Christ is knowing the mind of God and those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32 ). No wonder Paul prayed passionately to know Jesus intimately (Philippians 3:10 ). When we look at Pauls prayer, we may understand why he did great exploits in the ministry.

To achieve the same kind of result in our Christian walk, we also must be knowledgeable in the word of God. Search the Scriptures daily to know Jesus Christ the more (John 5:39 ), His mission before (Matthew 1:21 ), during (John 14:6 ) and after His earthly ministry (Revelation 22:12 ).

PRAYER POINT: Father, please reveal Your majesty to me that I may reverence You as l should.
