Open Heaven For Teens 14 March 2024: While Waiting

TOPIC: While Waiting [Open Heaven for Teens 14 March 2024]

MEMORISE: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it. because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Habakkuk 2:3

READ: 1 Samuel 13:7-14

7 And some of the Hebrews went over Jordan to the land of Gad and Gilead. As for Saul, he was yet in Gilgal, and all the people followed him trembling.

8 And he tarried seven days, according to the set time that Samuel had appointed: but Samuel came not to Gilgal; and the people were scattered from him.

9 And Saul said, Bring hither a burnt offering to me, and peace offerings. And he offered the burnt offering.

10 And it came to pass, that as soon as he had made an end of offering the burnt offering, behold, Samuel came; and Saul went out to meet him, that he might salute him.

11 And Samuel said, What hast thou done? And Saul said, Because I saw that the people were scattered from me, and that thou camest not within the days appointed, and that the Philistines gathered themselves together at Michmash;

12 Therefore said I, The Philistines will come down now upon me to Gilgal, and I have not made supplication unto the LORD: I forced myself therefore, and offered a burnt offering.

13 And Samuel said to Saul, Thou hast done foolishly: thou hast not kept the commandment of the LORD thy God, which he commanded thee: for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever.

14 But now thy kingdom shall not continue: the LORD hath sought him a man after his own heart, and the LORD hath commanded him to be captain over his people, because thou hast not kept that which the LORD commanded thee.

MESSAGE

There is always something we desire, and sometimes, we have to wait a little before we get it. A secondary student waits to graduate, gain admission into a prestigious University, then get a dream job, and so on. However, a peculiar thing about all the waiting periods is that the student hopes that someday, his or her dreams will come true.

There are three major things you should do as a Christian while you wait: keep asking, and don’t stop asking till your joy is full. Daniel prayed until he got answers.

Even when the Prince of Persia blocked his prayers from being answered, he didn’t stop praying (Daniel 10:12-13). Also, don’t be idle while waiting for the manifestation of your request. Remember, the idle hand is the devil’s workshop; get busy. For instance, while waiting for admission into a higher institution, learn a skill, get a certification, or do anything else that is productive. Finally, never go back to the world even if you don’t eventually get answers. Don’t look for alternatives to get your requests granted. Keep trusting in God.

PRAYER POINT:

Remind God of the promises yet to be fulfilled in your life and pray about them fervently today

HYMN 14 – Standing On The Promises Of God

1.⁠ ⁠Standing on the promises of Christ our King,
Thro’ eternal ages let His praises ring:
Glory in the highest, I will shout and sing,
Standing on the promises of God.

CHORUS
Standing, Standing,
Standing on the promises of
God my Saviour
Standing, Standing,
I’m standing on the promises of God.

2 Standing on the promises that can-not fail,
When the howling storms of doubt and fear assail
By the living word of Go I shall prevail,
Standing on the promises of God.

3.⁠ ⁠Standing on the promises I now can see
Perfect, present cleansing in the blood for me;
Standing in the liberty where Christ makes free,
Standing on the promises of God.

4.⁠ ⁠Standing on the promises of Christ the Lord,
Bound to Him eternally by love’s strong cord,
Overcoming daily with the Spirit’s sword,
Standing on the promises of God.
