Open Heaven 11 April 2018 Memorise: Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Zechariah 4:7
Read: Matthew 21:19-22 (KJV) Open Heavens 11 April 2018
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

Message – Open Heaven 11 April 2018 Wednesday Daily Devotional
There are several ways of dealing with mountains, and today we will be considering seven of these. The first option we will consider is to turn back. You can say that because a mountain is blocking your way to success, you will no longer move forward. This was the negative attitude of the children of Israel in Numbers 14:1-4. The second way is to walk around the mountain, thereby wasting time and effort. For those who are born of God, going round a mountain is not an option. Our Father’s desire for us is to always move forward, in spite of what lies ahead of us. This is why He commanded Moses to charge the children of Israel to move forward, in spite of the Red Sea in front of them (Exodus 14:15). You will move forward today in Jesus’ Name. The third way of dealing with mountains is to climb them. This may require a lot of effort but it is still better than going round in circles, and it is far better than going back. The fourth way you can deal with a mountain is to bore through the mountain or dig a tunnel through it. when Moses lifted up his hands before the Red Sea, God caused the east wind to blow all through the night, and this created a way in the sea for the children of Israel to pass through (Exodus 14:21). Just as the east wind blew to create a road for the children of Israel through the sea, creating a tunnel through a mountain will require the assistance of the Holy Spirit. The fifth way to deal with a mountain is to blast it out of the way. In Joshua 6:20, when the children of Israel came face-to-face with the wall of Jericho, the Lord instructed them to shout. They did, and not only did the wall fall, it was shattered and reduced to nothing. Indeed, God sent dynamite from heaven to blast the whole wall down. The sixth way we can deal with mountains is to relocate them. In Mark 11:22-23, the Lord says that if you have faith in God, you can command a mountain to change its position or get out of your way, and it will obey you.

The seventh way of dealing with mountains is to fly over them. In this scenario, although the mountain is still there, you don’t want to turn back, neither do you want to walk around it, struggle to climb it or dig through it. Maybe you don’t want to blast it because you want to use it as a reference point in future, and you don’t even want to bother relocating it; all you want to do is to fly over it. According to Isaiah 40:31; the condition you need to fulfil for you to experience this great feat is to wait upon the Lord. Are you ready to wait upon the Lord? The good news is that this is the easiest way for you to deal with mountains, and it is at your disposal if only you can wait upon the Lord.

Open Heaven 11 April 2018 Wednesday Hymn
Sing Hymn 10 – MY FAITH LOOKS UP TO THEE
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamp of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray
Take all my guilt away
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside
When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold, sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!

Please I needed prayer they are Mountain in my life have been addressing since have be born again, but it seem it not moving,
I will not lie am getting tried. I saved God in possible way I can. For two year I lose my Job, nothing is coming fort,
Have been expecting God for Miracle Marriage all seem standstill, if I meet a man we started talking next thing they will stop responding to me.
Please Daddy I need to help me talk to God, , please I need to know what is going wrong, I came to camp ground several, nothing seem happen, to get married in my family is a war,
Daddy I flighted the war in fasting and prayer, win soul, paying tithes, , have seeing so many wolis and pastors and gone to Different mountain to pray, but still nothing.
Daddy GO, I listen to your preaching every program on TV, BUT still nothing,
Please help me this new Man I find he will not leave me《CRYING》.
Sis Mojisola, i know what you passing through, trust me i have been there. Although am a male and might seem marriage is easier but other aspects in life has it’s own challenges like you mentioned;pleade still keep being faithful like Abraham, unwavering like Joshua and persistent in worship and thanksgiving like Paul and Silas and i believe in GOD’s precious time all will be done. Maybe you should turn your prayers from that of expectations to that of Thanksgiving. As easy as it sounds, in reality it’s not easy especially when your problems keeps staring u in ths face daily. Reflect on Ps. 1, 23 & 91 daily
Hello Sister Mojisola Bello, I currently experience what you are going through, but it could be of different proportions and degree. Just like Daddy G.o said in this message, he said the easiest way to move mountains is to wait on God, and waiting upon God is through aggressive thanksgiving, praise, worship and prayer.
You need to realise ma that God has a set time for all things, have you considered people who get married early only to become widows soon, have you considered those who have jobs only to be indicted for something they are innocent of. The people you see in looking good laughing etc, do you think they are all problem free? Please ma, don’t give up on God, because he will not give up on you. Also, don’t say because getting married in your family is a war, so it will be a war for u, that’s impossible, because you are born of God, and he that is born of God overcometh the world.
i want to implore you to have a die-hard faith because without it, you cannot please God, also focus more on God than on your problems. In addition, when you pray believe that your problems are gone even if you still see them. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Above all, have a heart of thanksgiving, brood more over the things God has done than on things he had not done. the mere fact that you are alive is to thank God for, you have mates who were once married, rich, have cars etc and are now dead. you are alive and have hope.
Lastly, do not stop praying, pray until your joy is full.
I have learnt how to deal with mountains. God Bless you for this message.
