OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL DATE: SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH 2022 THEME: WHEN GOD LAUGHS

MEMORISE: He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision. Psalms 2:4

READ: Psalms 2:1 -4
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD, and against his anointed, saying,

3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

4 He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

MESSAGE

When God laughs, two things are about to happen. The first is that His child or children are about to, laugh at their enemies. The second is that the enemies of His children are about to be disgraced. From the Bible reading the Kings came together against the Lord and His anointed, saying they wanted to break their bands asunder and cast away their cords. We get an idea of which bands they were talking about in Matthew 11:29:
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for l am lowly in hearth: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

They see the word of God as bands. They see His ways as cords binding them. They see Him and His anointed as people restricting them from living freely and doing whatever they like, and so, they begin to bring up laws and various agenda just to oppose the ways so the Lord. God said He will laugh at them. Several governments in our world today want to legitimize same sex marriages, justify killing babies in the womb, do whatever they like and sear the people conscience against he word of God. They may seem to be happy and doing well, but when God decides to laugh at them, they will be in derision (Psalm 2:1-4).

No matter what you do, you cannot be greater than God. You either bow to Him willingly, or you bow in shame. You cannot come against Him or His children and go scot free, you would be ashamed at the end of the day. When He laughs at a person's schemes, it means He is about to take action and it is His children that will come out on the winning side.

Even if a person lives outside His restrictions and appears to be enjoying himself or herself, at the very end the lake of fire will be waiting for such a fellow. Stop trying to break His bands of you, stop trying to break off the restrictions in the word of God; they are for your own good. His yoke is easy and will give you rest at the end of the day. The day of the rapture is a day of laughter for God. If you discipline yourself to live according to His will now, you will be laughing with Him on that day , but if you decide to live the way you like now, it will be a day of mockery for you. Which do you choose?

REFLECTION
When God laughs at His enemies, will you be on the winning side or the losing side?

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 14-16

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

HYMN 17: O LORD MY GOD, WHEN I IN AWESOME WONDER
O Lord my God! When I in awesome wonder
consider all the works thy hand hath made,
I see the stars, I hear the mighty thunder,
thy power throughout the universe displayed;

Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,
how great thou art, how great thou art!
Then sings my soul, my Saviour God, to thee,
how great thou art, how great thou art!

When through the woods and forest glades I wander
and hear the birds sing sweetly in the trees;
when I look down from lofty mountain grandeur
and hear the brook and feel the gentle breeze:
Then sings my soul…

And when I think that God, his Son not sparing,
sent him to die – I scarce can take it in
that on the cross, my burden gladly bearing,
he bled and died to take away my sin:
Then sings my soul…

When Christ shall come with shouts of acclamation
and take me home – what joy shall fill my heart!
Then shall I bow in humble adoration
and there proclaim, ‘my God, how great thou art!’
Then sings my soul…

Dont forget to share..😊..
