Open Heaven: 21 Days of Fasting and Prayer

Devotional

TRUSTING IN HIS LEADERSHIP  

Everyone has that one friend that claims to be good with directions, but who always ends up getting lost! Instead of pointing you in the right direction, listening to this friend leads you further away from your destination. And you’ll be telling yourself that the next time you need directions, you will not look to this friend! Thankfully, God knows the destination that He wants to lead us to. 

God is leading us into an Open Heaven. God told Abraham to leave his home to go to a land that he did not know. God promised Abraham an Open Heaven over his life, and the generations after him. Without any hesitation, Abraham stepped out in faith and obeyed because he heard God’s voice and trusted in His leading. The journey was not easy, but Abraham believed in the promises of God.

We can trust God’s leadership because His heart towards us is good. Like Abraham, it might not seem that good at first, but God’s plan is always to prosper us, and to give us a hope and a future! If you haven’t seen God’s promise fulfilled in your life, don’t give up! God’s not done with you yet.

As you continue in these 21 days, declare God’s promises over your life. Speak those promises over your life and step out in faith into whatever He is calling you to do. Trust His leadership, and He will fulfil His promise of an Open Heaven over your life.

Response:
Write down some of the promises that you are believing for your life today. As you set time aside in these 21 days, ask God to increase your faith to believe Him for these promises.

What is a decision you need faith for that God is leading you into? Start taking steps towards it and talk to a leader about it today. 

Prayer:
Dear God, I trust that Your plans for me are good and are to give me a future and hope. In times when I cannot see where You are leading me, help me to trust that You are good. I believe You are leading me into an Open Heaven. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
