Open Heaven January 4 2023 MESSAGE:
SCRIPTURE: And the channels of the sea appeared, the foundations of the world were discovered, at the rebuking of the Lord, at the blast of the breath of his nostrils. 2 Samuel 22:16 (KJV).
When God decides to breathe for the sake of someone, He may not do so directly on the individual; rather, He could breathe heavily to blow away the fellow’s enemies. Whenever you see the Bible say ‘blast of His nostrils’, that is God breathing heavily to blow away the enemies of His children, as we see in Exodus 15:8-10.
With the blast of His nostrils, He parted the Red Sea that was standing in the way of the Israelites to the Promised Land and then He made the water return, to drown Pharaoh and his army. When God breathes against your enemies, not only will they be no more, you will also be established in the place of your destiny. David testified to this in verse 20 of today’s Bible reading:
He brought me forth also into a large place: he delivered me, because he delighted in me.
With one breath, the Lord cleared off all David’s enemies and also brought him into a large place. Do you know that God can do the same for you today? He can clear off all your enemies and take you to that same place that they have been trying to stop you from getting to.
Now, I have always said that the summary of all Jesus’ messages in the Bible is that nothing goes for nothing. In other words, there are always conditions to be met for everything that we expect God to do for us. What is the condition for God to breathe against our enemies and to lead us to the glorious end He has set ahead of us? It is in verses 21-25 of our Bible reading – holiness. David said the Lord rewarded him according to his righteousness and the cleanliness of his hands.
Are your hands clean? When a person is faced with enemy forces he or she cannot defeat; an ally stronger than the enemy forces would be required to guarantee victory. The ally would however, withdraw their support if the person offends them. Don’t offend your Ally. Don’t do things that will make the Lord refuse to fight for you.
