Open Heaven Daily Devotional July 18 2023: The Storm Stiller 2.

    The theme for Open Heaven Daily Devotional July 18 2023 is The Storm Stiller 2.

    SCRIPTURE: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” – 2 Corinthians 8:9 (KJV)

    A financial storm is another critical storm of life that every believer must take care of by the power in the name of Jesus Christ. The Bible says: “The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender” (Proverbs 22:7). The Scripture further says: “The rich man’s wealth is his strong city: the destruction of the poor is their poverty” (Proverbs 10:15). The first thing to do to still a financial storm is to work hard. The Bible says:

    “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich. He that gathereth in summer is a wise son: but he that sleepeth in harvest is a son that causeth shame” – Proverbs 10:4-5

    The Bible further says in Proverbs 22:29:

    “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men”

    Thus, hard work is good. However, hard work alone may not guarantee safety from a financial storm because the Bible says: “Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain” (Psalm 127:1). Right from the fall at Eden, man has been labouring with little reward (Genesis 3:17-19). Therefore, the curse of poverty must be broken and the only One who can do this is Jesus Christ our Redeemer.

    Our memory verse for today shows that Jesus sacrificed everything to restore man to a life of bliss. We must invite Him into our lives so that every financial storm blowing against our lives would be stilled.

    We need to cry to God in the name of Jesus Christ, who promised that whatever we ask the Father in His name shall be done for us (John 14:14). He says also in Matthew 7:7-8, “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”. God will end poverty in your life today and He will use your testimony to draw many into His Kingdom, in Jesus’ name.
