Open Heaven Devotional 21st April 2023 MESSAGE:
God doesn’t know how to be stingy; whatever He does, He does generously. David said in Psalm 23:5, “…thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over”. That is God’s nature; when He gives you something, He gives it to you in abundance.
One day many years ago while I was preaching, the Lord said there was someone in the congregation who would get three breakthroughs. The first was to be given completely to Him, the second shared between the fellow and Him and then the third one would be for the fellow alone. Sometime later, a woman came to me with a huge amount of money and said she had come to fulfil her part of the bargain. I knew this woman – she was a widow whose husband had left a huge debt upon his death. She however, insisted that the prophecy was for her and I couldn’t do anything to dissuade her. Not long after, she returned with more money, saying this was half of the second breakthrough.
After this, she came back with a testimony: the bank her husband had been indebted to called her to apologise, saying they had made a mistake and rather than her husband owing them, they were the ones owing him! They paid the money to her and it was a lot. When God sets you free from debt, He does it such that it will be difficult for you to get into debt again. If you are in debt now, the All-Sufficient God will set you free from it, in Jesus’ name.
John 8:36 says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. When a person is medically healed from an ailment, there might still be traces left behind, but when Jesus sets you free, He does it perfectly, making you whole. If you have been in any form of bondage, receive total freedom right now, in Jesus’ name.
Not only will God set you free indeed, He can even empower you to set captives free (Mark 16:17), so that You would cast out demons from their victims. This privilege is given to God’s children who are ready to fast and pray often (Matthew 17:21).
Father, please set me free from all forms of bondage and use me to set captives free.
