Open Heavens Wednesday January 6 2021Topic: NOTHING HIDDEN
Memorize: For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.
Read: Luke 12:1-3
Many years ago, a man who had a chronic illness was advised to see me for prayers. I prayed for him but nothing happened, so I asked God why that was so. God told me to ask him about something he did at a particular stage of his life. When I did, the man was shocked and he opened up on a secret he thought was well kept.
Several years before, he had committed a crime and was due to be convicted due to the testimonies of some witnesses. He knew this, so he hatched a plan. Since the witnesses were to come to court by boat, he arranged for their boat to capsize and they all drowned. He then made sure that all the people he sent to wreck their boat were also killed. He was eventually acquitted of the initial crime and he lauded himself for covering his tracks excellently. It came as a shock to him seeing the incident spring up again. Obviously, he did not know of God’s word in
Proverbs 11:21 which says:
Though hand joins in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
He thought the crimes had been covered, but there he was suffering the repercussions. Everything you do today is a seed that will produce fruits in due time. It does not matter how much you try to bury it, one day, it will spring forth and everyone will see the harvest of your secrets. Stop stealing, stop committing adultery/fornication, stop watching pornography and put an end to every ungodly habit in your life today. No matter how hard you try to hide these sinful acts they will be revealed someday. Indeed, there is nothing hidden that will not be revealed. In any case, the people you are pretending for don’t have the power to send you to Heaven or hell. Whatever they think of you does not affect your eternity. The One who will judge you at the end of time knows even the thoughts of your heart, so stop pretending and disciplining yourself to do the right thing always. I would rather expose my sins to men and make Heaven than look holy to men and end up in hell. Since I cannot hide my sins from God, I would rather not commit any sin at all. Make up your mind to stay away from sin from today.
Hymn7: Have You Been To Jesus
What will you gain if everyone thinks you are holy on earth and you end up in hell?
Bible in one year; Deuteronomy 1-2

The title of Today Open Heavens Daily Devotional is NOTHING HIDDEN. Written by Daddy E.A Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, this topic is another powerful message from the Man of God. Obviously, God is everywhere at the same time and sees everything at the same time. He knows the thoughts of everyone at the same time, and there is none like HIM. Pastor Adeboye, in today’s Open Heavens devotional, encouraged us to run away from sin and anything else that defiles. Anything wrong you do that you think is hidden, is actually exposed to God. Hence, you should repent of your sins and ask God for forgiveness so you won’t end up in Hell Fire. GOD knows those that are His, and humans can only deceive fellow humans. No one can deceive GOD. As you read today Open Heavens, be determined to run completely away from sin. Thanks for reading. Don’t forget to also read tomorrow’s Open Heavens Daily Devotional, titled PRAYERS FOR THE NEW YEAR. As you should have seen, it is a very important one, as we all need to keep praying without ceasing.
