MESSAGE: – Open Heaven 1 May 2024 Wednesday Daily Devotional

Many people who claim to trust God with all their hearts surprisingly depend on their own understanding and attempt to strategize their way through life. The question, however, is, how deep is our understanding? Do we understand as much as God does? You must understand that two captains cannot be in charge of a ship at the same time.

It is either you let God take the wheel of your life, or you leave Him out of it. You cannot be in the driver’s seat and only remember God anytime you run into trouble; you must trust Him totally and rely on Him for everything. If you are truly a child of God, you must always be led by Him. (Romans 8:14). Trusting God does not start out easy; He will work on you, and as He leads you, He will mould and shape you to become a better person.

When you trust God to lead you, everything you touch prospers. Abraham was a man who trusted God completely, and he prospered greatly. He left everything he ever knew for a land that God said He would show him. He left without a plan; he was determined to trust God all the way. Shortly after, he grew so big that he had 318 men who could go to war with him living under his roof (Genesis 14:14). He was so rich that he rejected a king’s gift so that the king would not take glory for his prosperity.

When you trust someone, you don’t ask unnecessary questions. When you board a plane, you trust that the pilot knows what he is doing and that he will take you safely to your destination; you don’t ask to see his license or inspect the condition of the plane. If you can trust human beings with your life that much, how much more the Most High God? I learnt to trust God very early in my Christian walk because my Sunday School teacher taught me that if a son is at the top of a high place and his father asks him to jump, he will not ask questions because he knows that his father will catch him.

The moment I learnt that, I began to trust God so much that once He says “Jump,” I jump, knowing that He will catch me. Everything we have achieved in The Redeemed Christian Church of God to date has been purely based on trust. When He say move, I move. No arguments.

Action Point – Open Heavens 1 May 2024

Trust God with all your heart, and stop learning on your own understanding.

Open Heavens 1 May 2024 Wednesday Hymn

HYMN 30:  When We Walk With The Lord

1. When we walk with the Lord,

In the light of His word,

What a glory He sheds on our way!

While we do His good will

He abides with us still,

And with all who will trust and obey.


Trust and obey!

For there’s no other way

To be happy in Jesus,

But to trust and obey.

2. But we never can prove

The delights of His love,

Until all on the altar we lay,

For the favour He shows

And the joy He bestows

Are for them who will trust and obey. [Refrain]

 3. Then in fellowship sweet

We will sit at His feet,

Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,

What He says we will do,

Where He sends we will go,

Never fear, only trust and obey. [Refrain]
