When Someone Does You Wrong by Kenneth Copeland
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Luke 10:19

Someone’s done you wrong! Sooner or later it happens to all of us. Somewhere along the way, we all get hurt or cheated or lied to or abused.

It’s as predictable as it is painful. Yet when it happens most of us find ourselves strangely unprepared. In our outrage, we often cry out to God against the one who wronged us. We ask for justice, or even vengeance, and end up making things tougher on everyone involved—including ourselves.

If that’s been true of you, it’s time you found out how you can put the power of God to work for you the next time someone does you wrong.

Step one: Identify the enemy! Right here’s where the majority of us make our biggest blunder. We mistakenly identify our enemy as the person who hurts us. Don’t waste your energy ranting and raving or plotting and scheming against people who cause you pain. They’re simply under the devil’s influence. Aim your spiritual ammunition at the right target. It’s the devil who’s behind it all. Go after him!

Step two: Fire! Once you’ve pointed your spiritual guns in the right direction, fire! Hit the devil fast and furiously with the Word of God. Use the Name of Jesus and the power that’s been given you as a believer and bind the devil from doing you any further harm in that area. Then move on to the next and most important part of this spiritual battle.

Step three: Pray the prayer of intercession. In Matthew 5:44-45, Jesus gives us these instructions: “Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; that ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven.”

Crying out for the vengeance of God to strike like a lightning bolt when someone does us wrong isn’t acting like our Father. Remember, God has great, great mercy. Not just for me and you, but for everyone!

The devil will probably think twice before he bothers you again. Next time someone causes you pain, put the power of God to work for you. Identify the real enemy. Hit him hard with the authority you’ve been given as a believer. Then pray the prayer of intercession.

Scripture Reading:
Matthew 6:6-15

 Open Heavens: Bed Undefiled II by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
Monday August 20th 2018
Memorise: Likewise, ye thousands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered. 1st Peter 3:7

Read: Malachi 2:13-17 (KJV)
13 And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.
14 Yet ye say, Wherefore? Because the Lord hath been witness between thee and the wife of thy youth, against whom thou hast dealt treacherously: yet is she thy companion, and the wife of thy covenant.
15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed. Therefore take heed to your spirit, and let none deal treacherously against the wife of his youth.
16 For the Lord, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the Lord of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.
17 Ye have wearied the Lord with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him? When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the Lord, and he delighteth in them; or, Where is the God of judgment?

Bible in one year:
Psalm 36-39,
Matthew 23:1-28,

Hymnal:
Sing hymn 17

Message:
Apart from sexual infidelity, one other way of defiling the matrimonial bed is through domestic violence. This can come from the man or woman. God hates violence generally, but particularly despises it in marriage, and for this reason, He said in Malachi 2:16:

Open Heaven 20 August 2018 Bed Undefiled II

“For the LORD, the God of Israel, saith that he hateth putting away: for one covereth violence with his garment, saith the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit, that ye deal not treacherously.”

The breakdown of affection between married couples is a highly emotional issues with God, so much so that in today’s Bible reading, the tears, weeping and crying emanating from the agony of broken marriages made Him disregard the people’s worship, as we see in Malachi 2:13:

“And this have ye done again, covering the altar of the Lord with tears, with weeping, and with crying out, insomuch that he regardeth not the offering any more, or receiveth it with good will at your hand.”

Many people don’t know that domestic violence, particularly among married couples, is a great hindrance and stumbling block to their spiritual growth and blessing. This is the reason why the Holy Spirit sent these words to the Church in 1st Peter 3:7, saying:

“Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be not hindered.”

Violence, wife battering, husband battering and the like directly offend the Almighty God. I have on many occasions told the story of a man whose only daughter was maltreated by her husband. This man hated his son-in-law so much that his hatred made him terribly sick. It was not until he forgave his son-in-law that he was able to recover from his sickness. This is how much domestic violence can destroy lives and families. Husbands, you are inviting the wrath of God upon your life when you maltreat the redeemed daughter of Zion you are privileged to have as wife.

 Note that in Malachi 2:16, when expressing how much He hates divorce and domestic violence, God used the Name He uses in combat. Therefore, stop defiling your bed with violence against your spouse, either physical violence or verbal violence. Wives should learn to submit to their husbands, irrespective of what the world thinks about this (Ephesians 5:22-23). Beloved, the truth is that unless we allow Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, to come into our marriages, the expected peace may continue to elude us. Therefore, I appeal to you to raise an altar of submission and cooperate worship to the Lord Jesus Christ in your home, and you will begin to experience peace and prosperity in Jesus’ Name.

Action Point:
Go to God in repentance for any form of violence you have introduced into your home.

A Beautiful Glorious Fountain by Deborah Waldron Fry
I saw a beautiful glorious Fountain. And I saw the word YOUTH flowing from it. Beloved. I am the Fountain of Life. In Me you live and move and have your being. 

My Living Waters are forever flowing to you from the Throne of Grace. YOUTH is flowing. A restoration of your body and your soul. A Holy Spirit Flow to wash away the mindsets of this world. To restore your joy. To renew your youth. To be as a little child, able to receive blessings from My Hand. Look to this Fountain of youth, Dear One. I am not bound by time.

I am eternal and My Fountain flows forever. I am He who sees the end from the beginning. Come, Beloved, drink freely. I will take you back to when you felt free, to when the devil had not tainted your perceptions. Back to the time when My Spirit first made you feel ALIVE. Oh come to the Fountain, My Love. Come and be rejuvenated. You have not "lost" it. No, My Child. You have gained everything in Me. I satisfy you with good things and I restore your youth like the eagle. Age is only a number. You shall go forth in the Beauty of My Holiness, in the Dawn of the Day, you shall SPRING FORTH with renewed energy as the Dew. Come and drink your fill from the Fountain of Life. To him who has no might, I increase strength.

There is healing in My Fountain, Beloved. My Love never fails to make you new. You shall run and not be weary, you shall walk and not faint. ........................................ Rejuvenate: to make young or youthful again, give new vigor to, to restore to an original or new state. To stimulate (a stream) to renewed activity especially by uplift. ...

Job 33:25 Let his flesh become fresher than in youth, Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor. ...Psalm 103:5 Who satisfies your years with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle. ...Psalm 110:3Your people will offer themselves willingly in the Day of Your power, in the beauty of holiness and in holy array out of the womb of the morning; to You [will spring forth] Your young men, who are as the dew. ...Psalm 103:5 5who satisfies you with good things, so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s. ...Psalm 36:8 They feast on the abundance of Your house, and You give them drink from Your river of delights. 9For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light. ...John 7:37On the last and greatest day of the feast, Jesus stood up and called out in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.’” ...Isaiah 40:28-31 Amazing artwork by Brenda Craig; used with permission

A Mountain of Debt by Tammy Lang Jensen
Do you ever look around and think your life looks like a zombie apocalypse.

Dead things following you around that you just can’t shake. A mountain of debt, a child who has gotten off on the wrong path. A spouse who has hurt you, family who talks about you, and friends who think you have gone off your rocker.

Welcome to the way of the old rugged Cross and the blood it will cost. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me (Matthew 5:11). The true sanctified saints, purified and set in order for work rarely get to go the easy way. Like any soldier they normally look a little beat up. Their ankles may be swollen from jumping off the cliff time and time again when called upon.

Always taking the fearless leap of faith with Jesus. They may have a scar or two where the enemy landed a blow and thought he had finished them, only to watch Jesus come in and again they rise from the ashes. I provide for those who grieve in Zion-to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor (Isaiah 61:3).

I challenge you today, speak to those dead things in your life. Call those things that be not as though they are. Lack I call you dead, I decree I have more than enough.

I am blessed to bless, my cup runneth over, I will lend and not borrow. These carefully erected walls of protection. Lord I invite you in to destroy them with your battering ram of love. Because the same walls that were there to protect, Have also kept the blessing out. So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone (Ezekiel 37:7). Your day of reckoning is here.

The day the wind of refreshing overtakes you. You will leap like a calf let out to pasture, a song of praise will be on your lips. But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall (Malachi 4:2). Say no to doom and gloom ville, say yes to the promised land. A land flowing with milk and honey, look with your eyes of faith. At that instant something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and his sight was restored. He got up and was baptized (Acts 9:18).

I declare today you will be baptized by the fire of the Holy Spirit and it will burn away all that is not of God. That the Father will give you eyes to see and ears to hear and from this day forward you will walk in the supernatural things of God. There is no turning back and your faith will clear a path before you. Signs, wonders and miracles will be your portion. And you and the Father in heaven will do great exploits together. Surrender an agreement will be your understanding. Like two old comrades in the trenches of War.

Never a word spoken just moving together effortlessly like your life depends on it; because it does. Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. And I will do what ever you ask in my name so that the Father may be glorified in the Son (John 14:12-13). Is what you’re praying and asking glorifying the Father or glorifying you?....

The Basics Of Salvation by Pastor Chris Oyakhliome
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation (Romans 10:9-10).

Every man, woman, boy, and girl ever born, and that’ll ever be born into this world has already been “saved” by Jesus Christ. When He died, He died to save all humanity.

However, salvation is only a vital experience in the life of the one who has consciously affirmed the lordship of Jesus over his or her life. You receive salvation, or are saved, not just by believing in Jesus, but by taking the further step of affirming His lordship.

Read our opening scripture again and notice that it didn’t say, “if thou shall cry and ask God to save you, you shall be saved.” The Bible way to receive salvation isn’t by your tears or good works. Salvation is a gift from God: “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Ephesians 2:8). The Bible tells us about a Roman centurion named Cornelius. He was a devout and generous man; yet he wasn’t saved (Acts 10:2).

One day, an angel of the Lord appeared to him and said, “...Send men to Joppa, and call for Simon, whose surname is Peter; who shall tell thee words, whereby thou and all thy house shall be saved” (Acts 11:13-14). Salvation is a gift received by the affirmation of the right words. Once you believe in your heart that God raised Jesus from the dead, and confess with your mouth that He’s Lord over your life, instantly, you become a child of God; eternal life is imparted to your spirit. It’s an extraordinary miracle!

The world needs to know that it’s not difficult at all to receive salvation; it’s no use trying fruitlessly to atone for your sins or impress God with your “good works.” It makes no difference that you’re the nicest or meekest person around; you can’t trust in your good deeds to save you. There’s a definite act required for salvation: it’s the confession of the Lordship of Jesus, believing in your heart that God raised him from the dead.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the efficacy of your Word in my life. I’m one with the Father, therefore I’m one with divinity. Health, wealth, prosperity, life, and success are my daily experience. I live in the fullness of the blessings of the glorious Gospel of Christ. I’m an overcomer, because greater is He that’s in me than he that’s in the world, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Three Kinds of Pleasure by Billy Graham
The disciples were filled with joy, and with the Holy Ghost.
—Acts 13:52

The Bible speaks of three kinds of pleasure. There is lustful pleasure, the lust of the flesh, and Scripture says it is sinful and wrong. There is legitimate pleasure, which is not wrong, but we are not to become so preoccupied with its activities that it takes the place of God. Then there is a third kind of pleasure, lasting pleasure. Do you have that kind? It does not depend on circumstances or feelings. It is the pleasure that runs deep and comes from the Spirit of God.

Dig deeper with Anne Graham Lotz in this Bible study on the Holy Spirit.

Prayer for the day
Almighty God, may my pleasure always come from being filled with the joy of Your Holy Spirit.

You’re Only the Manager of Your Money by Rick Warren
“Once there was a man who was about to leave home on a trip; he called his servants and put them in charge of his property. He gave to each one according to his ability: to one he gave five thousand gold coins, to another he gave two thousand, and to another he gave one thousand. Then he left on his trip” (Matthew 25:14-15 GNT).

Jesus says in Matthew 25:14-15, “Once there was a man who was about to leave home on a trip; he called his servants and put them in charge of his property. He gave to each one according to his ability: to one he gave five thousand gold coins, to another he gave two thousand, and to another he gave one thousand. Then he left on his trip” (GNT).
In those days there weren’t any banks, so when this rich man left for his long trip, he entrusted his property to his servants. When he returned, he asked for an account from the servants; he wanted to know what they had done with his money.

This is called stewardship — it is related to the old English word for “manager.” The first law of financial freedom is the law of possession: Everything you have belongs to God. You are only a manager!

We are called to be stewards of our time. We are called to be stewards of our influence. We are called to be stewards of our health, our relationships, and our opportunities. God calls you to be steward or manager of everything you have.

You may say, “But wait a minute! I worked for my money, and now you want to tell me it isn’t mine?” Where do you think you got your body to work for your money? Where do you think you got your mind to work for it? Where do you think you got the energy to work for it? Where do you think you got the intelligence to work for it? Everything you have is a gift from God. You don’t really own anything in life; it’s all on loan.

You only get to use God’s money while you’re here on Earth. He’s loaned it to you for a few decades. He loaned it to somebody before you, and he’s going to loan it to somebody else after you die. You don’t own it; the Master owns it all. It’s all under management.

Do you know what the sign is that you’ve forgotten the law of possession? When you think your money is yours, you worry about it. You feel a pressure and stress that you weren’t meant to have.

Money management is a spiritual discipline. God is actually watching how you handle his money to see what spiritual riches he can trust you with in heaven. This might make you feel pressure, but there is actually freedom in the law of possession.

When you remember that God is the owner and you are the manager, you’ll worry a whole lot less and focus more on managing God’s money well.
