Open Heaven Teens 3rd August 2021 Devotional Message:
According to the Oxford Learners Dictionary,familiarity is the state of being extremely friendly. It could also be an instance of familiar behaviour or inappropriate informality. Being familiar with someone means you have personal knowledge about them.
A lot of Christians take God for granted due to the relationship they have with Him. It is a privilege to know God and have free access to Him. So, if you refuse to go to church or fellowship constantly because you feel youve read your Bible back to back and have more revelations than your pastor or leader, then, youre becoming too familiar with God.
If you take Christian meetings for granted by chatting, receiving calls, gisting with old friends, socializing with new ones et cetera while there, you have become too familiar with God. There is a saying that familiarity breeds contempt.
From now on, stop the contemptuous attitude; dont become carefree with spiritual matters, honour God and He will honour you too. 1 Samuel 2:30b says:
“for them that honour Me I will honour, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed.”
Father, please have mercy on me if I have dishonoured You in any way.

Hymn – I am Thine, O Lord
1. I am Thine, O Lord,
I have heard Thy voice,
And it told Thy love to me;
But I long to rise
in the arms of faith
And be closer drawn to Thee.
Draw me nearer,
nearer blessed Lord,
To the cross where Thou hast died;
Draw me nearer, nearer,
nearer blessed Lord,
To Thy precious, bleeding side.
2. Consecrate me now to Thy
By the pow’r of grace divine;
Let my soul look up with a
And my will be lost in Thine.
3. Oh, the pure delight
of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer,
and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend
4. There are depths of love that I
Till I cross the narrow sea;
There are heights of joy
that I may not reach
Till I rest in peace with Thee.
