Open Heaven 26 December 2022 MESSAGE:
SCRIPTURE: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28 (KJV).
Divine love is good, but then, what are the benefits of being loved by God? Let us use Lazarus as a case study. Lazarus was sick and his sisters sent to Jesus saying, “Lord, behold, he whom thou lovest is sick.” Jesus loved Lazarus and it was obvious to everyone, but what was His reply?
When Jesus heard that, he said, This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God, that the Son of God might be glorified thereby. – John 11:4
When God falls in love with you, every challenge you face will lead to a testimony. The day you discover that you are beloved of God, you can begin to rejoice because each time a challenge comes, God is going to bring a testimony out of it for you. In fact, the greater the problem, the greater should be your rejoicing.
For those who God loves, He will from time to time give them a new testimony, and you cannot have a new testimony except you have a new problem. A testimony is the result of a problem that is miraculously solved. That is why when I face challenges, I rejoice. I rejoice because a new challenge means a new testimony is on the way. In fact, those of us who are convinced beyond any doubt that He loves us look forward to challenges because we know that, with every challenge, there would be a miracle around the corner.
Do you believe that God loves you? If you do, why do you worry so much about the challenges facing You? Why do you lose sleep over something that He has already decided to use to bring glory to His name? Beloved of God, don’t worry yourself unnecessarily. You can relax, God is planning to use your story to show the whole world how great He is. You just ensure that you don’t do anything to make Him change His mind about loving you, then leave the rest to Him. He will shock your enemies.
