22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
24 The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
25 The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 19-21
MESSAGE: – Open Heaven 6 January 2022 Thursday Daily Devotional
Today, we shall be looking at a practical way of accessing divine help to deal with mountains. My first admonition today is that you should trust God – your Heavenly Father. In our Bible text for today, we read that “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not” – (Lamentations 3:22).
When we believe this Scripture, we have no reason to be anxious anymore, and we shall be unmovable. We should also trust God, the Son. Jesus said, “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” – (John 14:14). Jesus made it clear to us that He is the way, the Truth and the Life and no man can come to the Father except through Him (John 14:6).
Finally, we must trust God, the Holy Spirit, for power and strength. He is our energiser and the seal of our salvation. We can only succeed through life’s journey by His help. The Bible says in John 14:17: Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him; but ye know him for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
You should always remember the mercies of God, according to our text of today. In (1 Samuel 17:37), David said, “The LORD that delivered me out of the paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver me out of the hand of this Philistine”.
David remembered the mercy of God that once delivered him from the danger of death and the mountain of Goliath fell before him. According to Jesus in Matthew 17:20, we must have faith in God if we want to surmount the mountains of life. Finally, live righteously. The Bible says, “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings. Woe to the wicked! It shall be ill with him: for the reward of his hands shall be given him” (Isaiah 3:10-11).
In other words, only those who belong to God can surmount the mountains of life. If you have not yet accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, plead with Him to forgive your sins and make you His child. You shall overcome, in Jesus’ name.

Father, please make me a doer of Your word and level all the mountains of my life today, in Jesus’ name.
Open Heaven 6 January 2022 Thursday Hymn
HYMN: O GOD, OUR HELP IN AGES PAST
1. O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.
2. Under the shadow of Your throne
Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Your arm alone,
And our defence is sure.
3. Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting You are God,
To endless years the same.
4. A thousand ages in Your sight
Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.
5. The busy tribes of flesh and blood,
With all their lives and cares,
Are carried downward by your flood,
And lost in foll’wing years.
6. Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.
7. O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come:
Be Thou our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home
