READ: Psalm 84:10-12 (KJV)

10 For a day in thy courts is better than a thousand. I would rather be a doorkeeper in my God’s house than dwell in the tents of wickedness.

11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

12 O Lord of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Leviticus 19-21

Open Heaven 3 February 2024 MESSAGE

Yesterday, I explained that a son can become so close to the Father that he also becomes a friend of the Father. This is true; however, among friends, there are favorites. From the moment I learned that it is possible to be a favorite of God, someone from whom God will never hide anything, I decided to get so close to God that I would become His favorite. Do you also want to be God’s favorite? You must note that it will cost you something.

When we often talk about how a Christian should behave, dress, and act, some people will say, “God is not that difficult; he is a God of love. Where the Spirit of God is, there is liberty.” I always say, “We shouldn’t quarrel about it; live your life as you want. It all depends on how close you want to be to God.”

For example, if all you want in life is to become an Office Assistant, you don’t need to attend a higher institution. All you need to know is how to run basic errands, and you will achieve your goal. However, if you want to become a professor, you will enroll in a tertiary institution and burn the midnight oil. I want to be a professor for God, I want to get close to Him, and I want to be His favorite. I don’t want to be just a servant of God, I don’t want to be just a son, I don’t want to be just a friend, I want to be a favorite, and by the grace of God, that is what you will also be, even though it is going to come at a cost.

Becoming one of God’s favorites will cost you your time. Those who become God’s favorites spend more time with God than anyone else. Becoming God’s favorite will also cost you your appetite. You must be ready to fast like no man’s business if you want to draw closer to God than others ever will. It will also cost you material things because you must hate the things of this world and prioritize the kingdom of God. James 4:4 says friendship with the world is enmity with God. Matthew 6:24 further says that you must choose between God and mammon. You must reject mammon to become close to God. Are you willing to pay the price to become God’s favorite? I am.

Open Heaven 3 February 2024 ACTION POINT

Conduct a sincere audit of your relationship with God and commit to making sacrifices to draw closer to Him more than ever.

Open Heaven 3 February 2024 HYMN 7 – I Am Thine O Lord

1 I am Thine, O Lord, I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise in the arms of faith,
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer, nearer, blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.

2 Consecrate me now to Thy service, Lord,
By the power of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a steadfast hope,
And my will be lost in Thine.

3 O the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God,
I commune as friend with friend!

4 There are depths of love that I yet may know
Ere Thee face to face I see;
There are heights of joy that I yet may reach
Ere, I rest in peace with Thee.
