Open Heaven for Today 3 February 2020: [Monday] – Let Your Moderation be Known I


Memorise: Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. Philippians 4:5

Read: Deuteronomy 4:23-24 (KJV)
23 Take heed unto yourselves, lest ye forget the covenant of the Lord your God, which he made with you, and make you a graven image, or the likeness of any thing, which the Lord thy God hath forbidden thee.
24 For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire, even a jealous God.


Bible in one year: Exodus 13-15, Hymn: Sing hymn 2
This generation is generally called the digital age because with a handheld device, you can connect with anyone in the world.

This is actually very good but the concern is in such devices taking total control of you. These days, many are so preoccupied with their phones that they do not have time for God and what matters to Him. For some, the first thing they pick when they wake in the morning is the phone and not the Bible. Others can spend one hour on social media yet cannot spend same studying God’s word or praying. This shows that such hearts are more drawn to the phone than God. Don’t give the devil the liberty to rub you of God’s blessings.

Are you not already giving a phone the place of God? Have you observed that the position many take when using a phone is such that their heads are bowed? This is dangerous; remember, He is jealous God (Exodus 34:14). Exodus 20:2-3 says:

“I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”

If you have to delete some applications on your phone that you are addicted to, do so. If it will take you to place a Bible over your phone at night so when you reach out for the latter in the morning, it is the former you would pick instead, do so. Put measures in place to ensure you priorities activities that will make you grow spiritually.

Many Christians now prefer electronic Bibles. However, with the Bible applications on phones and tablets, there would be distractions from other applications on the device and the Spirit in the word of God cannot minister to the distracted mind. If you must use the electronic Bible, it would be best to go offline to cut off distractions from calls and messages. I pray the audio Bible before I go to bed so that all night, God’s word is being read aloud in my room while I am sleeping. You can do this too.
Which one takes more of your time daily, your Bible or social media? If it is the latter, repent and commit to amending your ways.
