Open Heaven 15 April 2024 Monday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Stop Taking Nonsense

Open Heaven 15 April 2024 TOPIC: Stop Taking Nonsense

MEMORISE: “And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,” – Matthew 21:12 (KJV)

READ: Acts 13:5-12 (KJV)

5 And when they were at Salamis, they preached the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews: and they had also John to their minister.

6 And when they had gone through the isle unto Paphos, they found a certain sorcerer, a false prophet, a Jew, whose name was Barjesus:

7 Which was with the deputy of the country, Sergius Paulus, a prudent man; who called for Barnabas and Saul, and desired to hear the word of God.

8 But Elymas the sorcerer (for so is his name by interpretation) withstood them, seeking to turn away the deputy from the faith.

9 Then Saul, (who also is called Paul,) filled with the Holy Ghost, set his eyes on him.

10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

11 And now, behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thee, and thou shalt be blind, not seeing the sun for a season. And immediately there fell on him a mist and a darkness; and he went about seeking some to lead him by the hand.

12 Then the deputy, when he saw what was done, believed, being astonished at the doctrine of the Lord.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 19-20

Open Heaven 15 April 2024 MESSAGE

There are many Christians who say that they do not take nonsense from anybody. However, these same people take nonsense from the devil. Whether you take nonsense from people or not is not very important, what is most important is that you do not take nonsense from the devil. The Bible says:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: – 1 Peter 5:8

Will you sit around and let him come and devour you? You should stand your ground against him and set his tail on fire so that he can run far away from you.

One of my daughters shared a testimony some time ago. Her child was sick, and they took the child to the hospital. On getting there, the doctor said that there was nothing he could do to save the child. The woman asked, “In that case, can you refer us to another hospital?” The doctor referred them, and on their way, they got stuck in a terrible traffic jam. While in the traffic jam, the child died. The woman said, “I am not going to take this,” and after five hours on the road, she suddenly had a brainwave. She said, “At least my father will call his God, and his God will answer. I will call on the God of my father, and I even have a handkerchief that he once prayed over.” She laid the handkerchief on the child, called the child’s name and commanded him to come back to life. The child jerked awake, and there was no need to go to the hospital anymore.

When you are determined not to let something evil happen, your prayers will be more fervent than usual. There are probably things in your life that the devil has been using to torment you. These things will only stop when you become determined not to take any nonsense from him again. If you have been praying gentle prayers concerning these things, it is time to use your authority in Christ and start issuing commands in your prayers.

You must however, submit yourself to God first before you can successfully stand up to the devil. James 4:7 says:

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

If you are sure of your right standing with God, when you resist the devil, he will run away from you. Stop taking nonsense from him!
