Open Heaven Devotional 26th April 2023 MESSAGE:
It is common knowledge that the Church is meant to be for people called out by God. Christ is the Head of the Church because the most important part of anybody is the head. The head is so important that when you want to take a passport photograph, all you take is a picture of your head. The heart, kidney and liver can be transplanted, but there has never been a successful head transplant.
Is Christ your head? If your answer is yes, is He your vision? The eyes are a major part of the head and we know how important vision is. Where there’s no vision, the people perish (Proverbs 29:18).
Is Christ your hearing? If Christ is your hearing, then your faith will continue to grow because Romans 10:17 says faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. That Word is Jesus Christ (John 1:1,14). That will lead us to the nose. What you breathe in and out counts because according to Acts 17:28, “For in him we live, and move, and have our being…” You are alive as a Christian if you’re breathing in and breathing out Christ.
Who controls your brain? What do you allow your mind to dwell on? Proverbs 23:7 says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…” Philippians 4:8 tells us the kind of thoughts we should have: pure, lovely, virtuous, good and praise-worthy thoughts.
Who controls your mouth? What do you eat? Who do you praise – God or man? John 4:24 says, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth”. How do you pray? Who controls you in prayer? John 14:14 says, “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it”.
You will be a successful Christian if Christ is your Head – the Controller. Our prayer should thus be, “Christ, please be my head”, because if all is well with the head, you can handle whatever is before you. If something goes wrong with the head, every other thing will go wrong.
Lord, please be my head from now, in Jesus’ name.
