Open Heavens For TEENS: Wednesday 6 September 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - The Lord Is In Charge

Topic: The Lord Is In Charge [Wednesday 6, September 2017]

Memorise: “The king shall joy in thy strength, O LORD; and in thy salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!” - Psalms 21:1

Read: Daniel 4:30-35

30 The king spake, and said, Is not this great Babylon, that I have built for the house of the kingdom by the might of my power, and for the honour of my majesty?

31 While the word was in the king's mouth, there fell a voice from heaven, saying, O king Nebuchadnezzar, to thee it is spoken; The kingdom is departed from thee.

32 And they shall drive thee from men, and thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times shall pass over thee, until thou know that the most High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to whomsoever he will.

33 The same hour was the thing fulfilled upon Nebuchadnezzar: and he was driven from men, and did eat grass as oxen, and his body was wet with the dew of heaven, till his hairs were grown like eagles' feathers, and his nails like birds' claws.

34 And at the end of the days I Nebuchadnezzar lifted up mine eyes unto heaven, and mine understanding returned unto me, and I blessed the most High, and I praised and honoured him that liveth for ever, whose dominion is an everlasting dominion, and his kingdom is from generation to generation:

35 And all the inhabitants of the earth are reputed as nothing: and he doeth according to his will in the army of heaven, and among the inhabitants of the earth: and none can stay his hand, or say unto him, What doest thou?

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 36-38. Hymn: Sing Hymn 9

MESSAGE:

To be in charge is the exercise of authority and control over individuals, events, situations, or circumstances of life. The Bible stresses fact that God is sovereign over all creation; He has absolute authority and control over everything in Heaven and on earth. However, humanity has wrongly assumed that they are the master of the universe and are therefore in charge. Contrary to this human belief, the Bible teaches that God controls the affairs of Heaven and earth. Deuteronomy 4:39 says:

"Know therefore this day, and consider it in thine heart, that the LORD he is God in heaven above, and upon the earth beneath: there is none else."

It is clear from this passage that God is unquestionable; He does as He pleases. He gives strength, He makes great, He promotes and He gives knowledge and wisdom, all at His will. The Lord controls human hearts, He controls time and seasons, He removes kings and sets up others in their place. He controls the weather and fixes human destiny. Who is in charge of your life.

Prayer Point: Father, please silence every opposition to Your authority as the Master of the universe in my life in Jesus' Name.
