The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Thursday 11th April 2024 Is “Yielded To God?”

Read: 1 Samuel 17:40

And he took his staff in his hand, and chose him five smooth stones out of the brook, and put them in a shepherd’s bag which he had, even in a scrip; and his sling was in his hand: and he drew near to the Philistine.

Memorise: 2 Timothy 2:21

If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use, and prepared unto every good work.

David was very careful in selecting the stones with which he fought Goliath because his life and the future of the entire nation of Israel were on the line. He did not just choose random pieces of stones because if he did, there could have been three different possibilities when he came face to face with the enemy. First, the stones wouldn’t travel in the right direction. Secondly, the stones may not travel a far distance, and lastly, they probably wouldn’t hit the mark.

In the same vein, God needs His children to become smooth stones so that He can use them to attack the enemy that is inciting battles against them. He wants you to yield yourself to divine instructions and experiences that will sharpen and smoothen you so that the more you obey Him, the better you will become.

Many teenagers volunteer as workers in their local church, yet they go in the wrong direction, fall short of God’s glory, and miss the mark because they have not yet become smooth stones for God to use. Beloved, take time to study God’s word daily so that you can be renewed and transformed thereby.


Have you yielded yourself as a vessel in the hands of the Potter?

HYMN 21: Nearer, My God To Thee

1.⁠ ⁠Nearer, my God to Thee,
Nearer to Thee;
E’en though it be a cross
That raiseth me,
Still all my song shall be,
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

2.⁠ ⁠Though, like the wanderer,
The sun gone down,
Darkness be over me,
My rest a stone,
Yet in my dreams I’d be
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee.

3.⁠ ⁠There let the way appear
Steps unto heaven;
All that Thou send’st to me
In mercy given;
Angels to beckon me
Nearer, my God, to Thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee

4.⁠ ⁠Then with my waking thoughts
Bright with thy praise,
Out of my stony grief
Bethel I’ll raise;
So by my woes to be
Nearer, my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

5.⁠ ⁠Or if on joyful wing
Cleaving thy sky,
Sun, moon, and stars forgot,
Upwards I fly
Still all my songs shall be,
Nearer my God to thee,(2ce)
Nearer to Thee!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Joshua 3:1-4:24 Luke 14:7-35
