*OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL.*

DATE: WEDNESDAY 22ND SEPTEMBER, 2021.

*THEME: ARE YOU ON THE RIGHT SIDE?*

*MEMORISE:*

Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him. Exodus 32:26

*READ: Exodus 32:25-26*

25 And when Moses saw that the people were naked; (for Aaron had made them naked unto their shame among their enemies:)

26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’s side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.

*MESSAGE:*

In John 21:1-6, we read about the disciples’ encounter with the resurrected Jesus at the Sea Tiberias where they had gone fishing. In spite of all their hard work they caught nothing. Jesus came to them, but they initially did not recognize Him. He then teased them, asking “Children, have ye any meat?” The answer was obviously negative. When you are not where you should be, you are on the wrong side and this can bring untold hardship and sorrow.

Jesus had compassion upon the apostle and gave them a directive to cast their net to the right side of the boat for a catch. They obeyed and hauled in a mighty catch. Every child of God must always strive to be on the right side of the Lord- doing His will, obeying His word and walking according to his ways.

“And Lot lifted up his eyes, and beheld all the plain of Jordan, that it was well watered every where, before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, even as the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, as thou comest unto Zoar. Then Lot chose him all the plain of Jordan; and Lot journeyed east: and they separated themselves the one from the other.”
Genesis 13:10-11

Lot greedily chose the land that seemed good for his flocks without consideration for his elderly uncle who brought him out to choose first.

Unfortunately, it was the wrong side; it was a place marked for destruction. The land was totally destroyed and lot lost everything except two of his daughters. He even lost his wife to the destruction.

“Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt.” Genesis 19:24-26

Beloved, please come to the Lord’s side today if you are yet to answer His call.

Repent and accept Him as your Lord and Savior. He will prosper and give you all-round rest as He has promised, in the mighty name of Jesus,

*PRAYER POINT:*

Father, please take me away from the wrong side of life and bring me to the right side, in Jesus’ name.

*BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:* Proverbs 16.

*HYMN 29: WHAT CAN WASH AWAY MY STAIN?*

1. What can wash away my sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
What can make me whole again?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

o Refrain:
Oh! precious is the flow
That makes me white as snow;
No other fount I know,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

2. For my pardon, this I see,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
For my cleansing this my plea,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

3. Nothing can for sin atone,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Naught of good that I have done,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

4. This is all my hope and peace,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
This is all my righteousness,
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

5. Now by this I’ll overcome—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus;
Now by this I’ll reach my home—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.

6. Glory! Glory! This I sing—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus,
All my praise for this I bring—
Nothing but the blood of Jesus.
