Open Heaven [10 November 2018] How to access good life
God first created everything that man would need for a good life before He made man in his own image and set him over all of his other creations (Genesis 1:26-28). The calamity of a life of struggle only came after Eve was deceived into believing the devil’s lies and Adam outrightly disobeyed God. God consequently withdrew aspects of his good life from them (Genesis 3:16-19). However, the good life of God was reinstated through the second Adam, Jesus Christ (Romans 5:12-15).
It would be wise of you to pay attention to the three major things mentioned in this scripture as vital to experiencing the good life. First is your speech. No wonder the Bible says death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). The content and manner of your speech have a great impact on your relationship with God and man. Use the power that your tongue possesses to speak life to yourself and everything that concerns your every day.
Open Heaven 10 November 2018: [Saturday] Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – How to access good life
Don’t try to move ahead in life by specking evil and lying about others. Learn to ask God and man of what you desire for yourself. I pray that God will illuminate your heart to understand the power of good that lies in your tongue. The second thing you must watch are your deeps. More often than not, what you will work towards in life is what will come to you. The types of problems you solve in this world through your deeds go a long way to determine the type of reward you will receive from God and men. May God give you wisdom to apply this truth towards increasing your reward in life. Third and last of these things is the type of influence you bring into your community. If you work towards peace in your family, community and country, you will also enjoy a good life of peace. What better way is there to influence your world than to preach the good news of the abundant life that Jesus Christ came to give (John 10:10)? When you influence workers of evil to begin to do good, you will definitely experience a good life around you. Are your speech, deeds and influence working together to establish the good life you have received from Jesus Christ?
