Topic: Whatsoever Things are of Good Report [Open Heavens for Teens 6 February 2019]
Memorise: “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” – Psalm 121:1-2
Read: Philippians 4:8
8 For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
Bible In One Year: Exodus 39-40, Matthew 24:1-22
A report is the result of an action or event. There are good reports and there are bad reports. God is telling us today to only think on the good reports.
Many times, you get scared of trying something because somebody tried it and failed. Sometimes, you start doing it, but you keep thinking about the people who failed at it. God says “Think on the good reports”. Someone may have failed at it, but someone else also succeeded at it, think of that one person who succeeded. Someone might not have passed through what you are passing through now and did not pull through, but other people passed through it and they overcame, think of those ones that overcame.
There is a popular song by the legendary Dr. Ron Kenoly where the lead singer calls: “Whose report will you believe?” And everyone responds: “I Shall believe the report of the Lord, His report says I am healed, His report says I am filled, His report says I am free, His report says victory!
Kill the thoughts of the bad reports and focus on the good reports so that you can have victory.
- My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
Oh, let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
- May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
Oh, may my love to Thee
Pure, warm and changeless be,
A living fire!
- While life’s dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow’s tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
- When ends life’s transient dream,
When death’s cold sullen stream
Shall o’er me roll;
Blest Savior, then, in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
Oh, bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul.
