Open Heaven, Friday 26 August 2022 Daily Devotional Message
All the creations of God call Him Lord. The birds sing His praises, the trees clap their hands to praise Him, the seas roar His praises, the mountains skip at His presence, even the sun and moon speak of His majesty.
In Mark 4:39, Jesus simply issued a command for there to be peace and the storm ceased immediately. Everyone present there marveled and wondered what kind of man He was that even the seas obeyed Him.
He however, has one creation that proves stubborn sometimes – humans. Many people, even with all that they can see and have heard of Him still don’t acknowledge Him as Lord. When I was a lecturer in the University, my seniors, people with tremendous academic achievements, were divided into categories whenever I was talking to them about Jesus.

One category would say, “God is dead”, another “No, He is not dead, it may be true that He created the world because, from the little we see in science, it requires great intelligence to put the entire world together; but at the end of the day, He discovered that what He created was too big for Him and He has lost control”.
The category of people who would want to be generous would then say, “Well, whether He is dead or not, I don’t know. Whether He has lost control or not, I don’t know. One thing I know is that He is in Heaven minding His business and I am here on earth minding my own”. Philippians 2:10-11 says;
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
If you refuse to call Him Lord when you are at peace, you will be forced to call Him Lord when you are in trouble. Those who don’t make Him the Lord of their life early enough will have to kneel and confess that He is Lord after the rapture when they are either left behind on earth or in hell underneath the earth.
If you continue to reject His Lordship now because you want to live as you please, you will still call Him Lord from hell later. The choice is yours.
Father, I call you my Lord today and I promise to live my life according to your word, now and always.
