Power Makes Noise: Open Heaven April 16, 2024

Open Heaven For Today Tuesday Daily Devotional By Pastor E. A. Adeboye: Power Makes Noise

TOPIC: Power Makes Noise

MEMORISE: “And it shall come to pass, that when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when ye hear the sound of the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and the wall of the city shall fall down flat, and the people shall ascend up every man straight before him.” Joshua 6:5 (KJV)

READ: Joshua 6:15–21 (KJV)

15 And it came to pass on the seventh day that they rose early about the dawning of the day and compassed the city, in the same manner, seven times; only on that day did they compassed the city seven times.

16 And it came to pass at the seventh time when the priests blew with the trumpets. Joshua said unto the people, Shout; for the Lord has given you the city.

17 And the city shall be accursed, even it and all that is therein, to the Lord: only Rahab the harlot shall live, she and all that are with her in the house, because she hid the messengers that we sent.

18 And ye, in any wise, keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest ye make yourselves accursed, when ye take of the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

19 But all the silver and gold and vessels of brass and iron are consecrated unto the Lord; they shall come into the treasury of the Lord.

20 So the people shouted when the priests blew with the trumpets, and it came to pass, when the people heard the sound of the trumpet, and the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.

21 And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Kings 21–22

Open Heaven for Today’s MESSAGE

Many Christians don’t pray aloud anymore, and this is one of the reasons we are seeing fewer demonstrations of power among us. During the first service I attended at RCCG, we were asked to shout hallelujah, and the fellow beside me shouted so loudly that I almost ran out of the church. Where there is power, there must be noise. The Concorde, a plane that could take you from London to New York in about three hours, was grounded partly because people said it was noisy. With its powerful engine, it was bound to be noisy.

power, adeboye

These days, many Christians have to be cajoled to shout ‘hallelujah’. I remember many years ago when I was asked to preach during a Christmas carol at Aso Rock, and all the high and mighty were there. When I asked them to shout hallelujah, they shouted like sophisticated ladies and gentlemen until I said, “The next fellow to shout hallelujah is the only one who will see the new year.” This time around, they really shouted. Real Christians do not have to be threatened to praise their Father.



Many years ago, I was walking and praying within Redemption City in the middle of the night, hungry and thirsty for the power of God. I had been crying, “Lord, I told You from the beginning that I don’t want to be ordinary. I was serving you as much as I could when I was still lecturing at the university, making some money to do your work, but you pulled me out. Now, you have made me a general overseer, and I lack the power to do the work that must be done. Father, either empower me or take me home.” As I prayed, the ground under my feet shook violently.

There was an earthquake that was felt from as far as Ijebu-Ode—it was in the newspapers. An earthquake is not quiet. Noise is necessary for power; stop trying not to be noisy. Don’t hinder the move of God with your so-called sophistication.

I am at a point in my life where I need other people to carry more fire than me so that when I am leaving, I will know that I am leaving commandoes behind that will take the work of God farther than I did. Stop forming, as the youth will say, when you are in the presence of God. Be free to make a loud noise that will shut the devil out and let the power of God flow.


Shout a very loud hallelujah!

HYMN 6: I Am So Glad That Our Father Is In Heaven

I am so glad that our Father is in heaven.
Tells of His love in the book He has given;
Wonderful things in the Bible I see,
This is the dearest: that Jesus loves me.

I am so glad that Jesus loves me.
Jesus loves me. Jesus loves me.
I am so glad that Jesus loves me.
Jesus loves even me.

Though I forget him and wander away,
Kindly, he follows wherever I stray.
Back to His dear, loving arms, would I flee?
When I remember that Jesus loves me, [Refrain]

3: If there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great king,
This shall be my song in eternity:
Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me! [Refrain]



Lord Jesus, come into my life. I accept you as my Lord and personal savior. I believe in my heart that you died and rose from the dead to save me. Thank you, Lord, for saving me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
