The Topic of Teenagers Open Heavens for Tuesday 9th April 2024 Is “Joy That Lasts”

Read: Philippians 4:4-8

4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Memorise: Philippians 4:4

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say,

Contrary to the belief that people’s possessions or achievements are what determines their level of joy, joy is a function of the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of a believer. When I was much younger, as a lecturer at the university, I had so many worries about my career, family, and life in general. I used to get agitated about little things until the day I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. That night, I felt joy welling up from within me, and I couldn’t wait to get to work the following morning. A senior colleague, Professor Chike Obi, noticed my mood and asked if I had gone to a party the previous night, but I said, “No, I’m joyful because I have received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour.”

Beloved, some people have tried different ways to get joy and have been led into evil schemes, addictions, and wrong associations. At the end of the day, they regretted their actions. Jesus is the only true source of lasting joy, not friends, drugs, or alcohol. The moment He comes into your life, He makes all things new and turns everything around for your good. Even when you are faced with certain challenges, you can rest assured that Jesus will come through for you.


Wells of joy, flow from within me. I will never know sorrow again, in Jesus’ name.

HYMN 1 – Be Glad In The Lord And Rejoice

1.⁠ ⁠Be glad in the Lord and rejoice,
All ye that are upright in heart;
And ye that have made Him your choice,
Bid sadness and sorrow depart.

Rejoice! Rejoice!..
Be glad in the Lord and Rejoice!
Rejoice! Rejoice!.
Be glad in the Lord and Rejoice!

2.⁠ ⁠Be joyful for He is the Lord,
On earth and in heaven supreme;
He fashions and rules by His words;
The “Mighty” and “Strong” to redeem.

3.⁠ ⁠What tho’ in the conflict for right
Your enemies almost prevail!
God’s armies, just hid from your sight,
Are more than the foes which assail.

4.⁠ ⁠Thơ’ darkness Surround you by day,
Your sky by the night be o’er cast,
Let nothing your spirit dismay.
But trust till the danger is past.

5.⁠ ⁠Be glad in the Lord and rejoice,
His praises proclaiming in song:
With harp, and with organ, and voice,
The loud hallelujahs prolong!

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Deuteronomy 33:1-29 Luke 13:1-21
