Open Heaven For Teens 18 April 2024 – When Parents Object

TOPIC: When Parents Object (Open Heaven for Teens 18 April 2024)

MEMORISE: Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Ephesians 6:1

READ: Ephesians 6:1-3

1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.

2 Honour thy father and mother; (which is the first commandment with promise;)

3 That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.


There are several examples of people in the world today who became outstanding, not through the conventional route of education, but by following their passions or callings. Some had confrontations with their parents and went against their wishes, while some who were not born with silver spoons found their way to the top by taking risks and experimenting in different fields.

My dear child, when your parents object to your dreams, don’t argue with them: rather, pray that God will make them see what He is placing in your heart. If it is His will that they insist, rest assured that God is planning something big for you in that field.

I remember when I told my Father in the Lord that we wanted to hold an outreach in a state in the Middle Belt of Nigeria, he objected and advised me to do it in a southwestern state. I reluctantly obeyed, and at the end of the programme, the king of the town we held the outreach in gave me an unusual blank cheque to request for acres of land for our church. Today, Redeemer’s University and Redeemer’s School of Missions are sitting on that land.


Remain teachable and submissive to your parents.

HYMN 10 – O God, Our Help In Ages Past

1.⁠ ⁠O God, our help in ages past
Our hope for years to come
Our shelter from the stormy blast
And our eternal home.

2.⁠ ⁠Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure
Sufficient is Thine arm alone
And our defence is sure.

3.⁠ ⁠Before the hills in order stood
Or earth received her frame
From everlasting Thou art God
To endless years the same.

4.⁠ ⁠A thousand ages in Thy sight
Are like an evening gone
Short as he watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5.⁠ ⁠Time, like an ever-rolling stream
Bears all its sons away
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

6.⁠ ⁠O God, our help in ages past
Our hope in years to come
Be thou our guard while trouble last
And our Eternal home.
