The theme for Open Heaven Daily Devotional August 29 2023 is How To Become Influential.
SCRIPTURE: “And I will make thy seed to multiply as the stars of heaven, and will give unto thy seed all these countries; and in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed.“ Genesis 26:4
God wants you to be influential.
Genesis 1:28 1 says He wants you to have dominion.
Believe me, honestly, you don’t have to be the president before you begin to have dominion. No matter your status today, can still have dominion.
The Almighty cod wants you to become influential, but for that to happen, you must obey Him and His commandments -no matter the situation.
When you do this, He will see to it that you are always the head and never the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13). If you want to increase in influence, do what He says. One major thing He said you should do is to win souls.
Our Bible reading for today says you can become Jesus’ friend and I’m telling you, when you befriend the Lord, you become very influential because of your relationship with He who has influence across all realms (Philippians 2:10).
When you become a friend of Jesus Christ, doors open to you automatically. I can tell you stories upon stories about countries that refused to register The Redeemed Christian Church of God and the same people would call us back within months to offer us our registration certificate.
When you are a friend of Jesus, you will do what He commanded in John 15:14-15 – win souls and make sure they abide.
If you do this, He has promised that anything you ask in His name, He will do it. That is great influence.
In John 12:32, the Bible says if you will lift Jesus, He would draw all men to Himself. If you keep on preaching, witnessing and winning souls, men will come from all over the place to meet with you.
Thus, if you want to be influential, 2 Timothy 4:2 says you should preach in and out of season. Preach when it is convenient and when it is not convenient.
If every one of us reading this devotional today goes out and wins at least one soul today, imagine how much rejoicing would be in heaven because of us.
Do your part and He will surely do His. My greatest desire was to be the youngest Vice-Chancellor in Africa, but when I became born again and Cod called me into full-time ministry, I abandoned my ambition.Today, Vice-Chancellors call me Daddy.
Open Heaven 29 August 2023 Action Point:
Every reader of this devotional is to win at least one soul today. Don’t break the chain.
