Open Heaven 3 June 2023 TOPIC: Dealing With Enemies
MEMORISE: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.” – Psalm 23:5 (KJV)
READ: Esther 9:1-3 (KJV)
1 Now in the twelfth month, that is, the month Adar, on the thirteenth day of the same, when the king’s commandment and his decree drew near to be put in execution, in the day that the enemies of the Jews hoped to have power over them, (though it was turned to the contrary, that the Jews had rule over them that hated them;)
2 The Jews gathered themselves together in their cities throughout all the provinces of the king Ahasuerus, to lay hand on such as sought their hurt: and no man could withstand them; for the fear of them fell upon all people.
3 And all the rulers of the provinces, and the lieutenants, and the deputies, and officers of the king, helped the Jews; because the fear of Mordecai fell upon them.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 31-34
John 8:36 tells us that whosoever the Son sets free shall be free indeed, not partially. This means that God’s children should not be living under any form of bondage but unfortunately, some are still held in bondage by the devil.
Psalm 24:7-10 says that your God is the Lord strong and mighty, mighty in battle. He is the Lord of Hosts and He can never lose a war. It doesn’t matter how many evil forces are trying to hold you down, my Father will deal with them all today, in Jesus’ name.
God has different ways of dealing with our enemies. He can do it by drowning (Exodus 14:28), roasting (2 Kings 1:9-12), throwing stones from heaven (Joshua 10:11), or even tying them down to watch you enjoy divine provisions (Psalm 23:5). God can paralyse your enemies just to let them see your glory. All those hindering your promotion will bow before you, in Jesus’ name.
There was once a wealthy lady who lived in a city. On a certain day, as she was about to eat, a frog suddenly landed on her plate and then disappeared. From that day on, she started coughing heavily, and whenever she coughed, she urinated too. She was in this terrible condition for two years. She tried everything medically possible to get healed but nothing worked. One day, we went to her city to hold a programme. She attended and when the altar call was made, she gave her life to Christ. From that moment the coughing ceased and she began to sleep soundly. She was delivered by our Lord Jesus Christ and the demon that had been tormenting her went back to its sender. The sender was a woman and she started to cough immediately. She later confessed and began to beg the woman she afflicted for help. In the process of seeking forgiveness, the second woman also gave her life to Jesus Christ and God healed her. The two of them are strong members of the Church now.
I decree that the Lord will deal with all your enemies; cause them to repent and seek for your help in Jesus name.
Father, let everyone who has decided to be my enemy bow before me, in Jesus’ name.
HYMN 6: I Am So Glad That Our Father In Heaven
1 I am so glad that our Father in heaven
Tell 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.
2 Jesus loves me and I know I love Him;
Love brought Him down my lost soul to redeem;
Yes, it was love made Him die on the tree:
Oh, I am certain that Jesus love me.
3 In this assurance I find sweetest rest,
Trusting in Jesus I know I am blessed;
Satan, dismayed from my soul doth now flee,
When I just tell him that Jesus loves me.
4 Oh, if there’s only one song I can sing,
When in His beauty I see the great King,
This shall my song in eternity be,
“Oh, what a wonder that Jesus loves me!”
5 If one should ask of me, how can I tell?
Glory to Jesus, I know very well!
God’s Holy Spirit with mine doth agree,
Constantly witnessing Jesus loves me.
