My Expectation is from God ( by C.H Spurgeon)

My Expectation Is From God

“My expectation is from him.” Psalm 62:5

It is the believer’s privilege to use this language. If he is looking for aught from the world, it is a poor “expectation” indeed. But if he looks to God for the supply of his wants, whether in temporal or spiritual blessings, his “expectation” will not be a vain one. Constantly he may draw from the bank of faith, and get his need supplied out of the riches of God’s lovingkindness. This I know, I had rather have God for my banker than all the Rothschilds. My Lord never fails to honour his promises; and when we bring them to his throne, he never sends them back unanswered. Therefore I will wait only at his door, for he ever opens it with the hand of munificent grace. At this hour I will try him anew. But we have “expectations” beyond this life. We shall die soon; and then our “expectation is from him.” Do we not expect that when we lie upon the bed of sickness he will send angels to carry us to his bosom? We believe that when the pulse is faint, and the heart heaves heavily, some angelic messenger shall stand and look with loving eyes upon us, and whisper, “Sister spirit, come away!” As we approach the heavenly gate, we expect to hear the welcome invitation, “Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.” We are expecting harps of gold and crowns of glory; we are hoping soon to be amongst the multitude of shining ones before the throne; we are looking forward and longing for the time when we shall be like our glorious Lord–for “We shall see him as he is.” Then if these be thine “expectations,” O my soul, live for God; live with the desire and resolve to glorify him from whom cometh all thy supplies, and of whose grace in thy election, redemption, and calling, it is that thou hast any “expectation” of coming glory.

“Don’t be surprised when people come against you or don’t see what God has placed in you.

You don’t need the approval of everyone around you to fulfil that dream in your heart.

God will give you the right team, the right people, who will love and support you and speak the truth over your life.”

Victoria Osteen

Joseph’s dream was opposed by his brothers yet he fulfilled his dream. David’s dream was opposed by his brothers too, yet he felled Goliath and was promoted.

King Saul opposed him for a long time but he persevered until the due time. God also gave him helpers.

Nehemiah’s dream was also fiercely opposed, but he persevered, prayed and worked with the people God gave him until the vision was accomplished.

Saul of Tarsus opposed the church, armed with warrants and arresting, torturing believers and even murdering some of them until God arrested and turned his life around. He was himself opposed and persecuted greatly. But God was with  him and protected him throughout his ordeal and he fulfilled his vision.

Jesus  came to His own but they did not receive him. They called him names. Even Peter, one of his right hand men, opposed His purpose soon after he had made a profound declaration of who Jesus was. Jesus knew Satan was then using Peter to oppose His purpose. Jesus countered Peter’s rebuke with ‘Get thee behind me, Satan.’

So is your ministry purpose, vision   or assignment opposed? Look unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your Faith, Say to yourself: ‘If God be for me, who can be against me?’

The Most High, Our Enduring Habitation

Morning

“Thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation.” Psalm 91:9

The Israelites in the wilderness were continually exposed to change. Whenever the pillar stayed its motion, the tents were pitched; but tomorrow, ere the morning sun had risen, the trumpet sounded, the ark was in motion, and the fiery, cloudy pillar was leading the way through the narrow defiles of the mountain, up the hill side, or along the arid waste of the wilderness. They had scarcely time to rest a little before they heard the sound of “Away! this is not your rest; you must still be onward journeying towards Canaan!” They were never long in one place. Even wells and palm trees could not detain them. Yet they had an abiding home in their God, his cloudy pillar was their roof-tree, and its flame by night their household fire. They must go onward from place to place, continually changing, never having time to settle, and to say, “Now we are secure; in this place we shall dwell.” “Yet,” says Moses, “though we are always changing, Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place throughout all generations.” The Christian knows no change with regard to God. He may be rich today and poor to-morrow; he may be sickly today and well to-morrow; he may be in happiness today, to-morrow he may be distressed–but there is no change with regard to his relationship to God. If he loved me yesterday, he loves me today. My unmoving mansion of rest is my blessed Lord. Let prospects be blighted; let hopes be blasted; let joy be withered; let mildews destroy everything; I have lost nothing of what I have in God. He is “my strong habitation whereunto I can continually resort.” I am a pilgrim in the world, but at home in my God. In the earth I wander, but in God I dwell in a quiet habitation.

“I will never leave thee.” Hebrews 13:5

No promise is of private interpretation. Whatever God has said to any one saint, he has said to all. When he opens a well for one, it is that all may drink. When he openeth a granary-door to give out food, there may be some one starving man who is the occasion of its being opened, but all hungry saints may come and feed too. Whether he gave the word to Abraham or to Moses, matters not, O believer; he has given it to thee as one of the covenanted seed. There is not a high blessing too lofty for thee, nor a wide mercy too extensive for thee. Lift up now thine eyes to the north and to the south, to the east and to the west, for all this is thine. Climb to Pisgah’s top, and view the utmost limit of the divine promise, for the land is all thine own. There is not a brook of living water of which thou mayst not drink. If the land floweth with milk and honey, eat the honey and drink the milk, for both are thine. Be thou bold to believe, for he hath said, “I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”In this promise, God gives to his people everything. “I will never leave thee.” Then no attribute of God can cease to be engaged for us. Is he mighty? He will show himself strong on the behalf of them that trust him. Is he love? Then with lovingkindness will he have mercy upon us. Whatever attributes may compose the character of Deity, every one of them to its fullest extent shall be engaged on our side. To put everything in one, there is nothing you can want, there is nothing you can ask for, there is nothing you can need in time or in eternity, there is nothing living, nothing dying, there is nothing in this world, nothing in the next world, there is nothing now, nothing at the resurrection-morning, nothing in heaven which is not contained in this text–“I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”

David, the Sweet Psalmist of God

Wrote his sweet songs in dark vales

Depending on God and His word;

Knowing the God he served would not fail.

 

Even when dethroned by his son

He could ‘ bless the Lord at ALL times.’

Regardless of the odds he pressed on

In the same way in His hands are my times.

 

In my night God will give a song

He will not leave me nor forsake me.

The songs He gives will be so long

And nothing and no one can stop me.

 

 

Through the valley I will ride to victory

Every mountain will b bulldozed and moved

God will help me leave a glorious legacy

That will cause His mighty name to be praised.

1     Now these are the last words of David.

      Thus says David the son of Jesse;

      Thus says the man raised up on high,

      The anointed of the God of Jacob,

      And the sweet psalmist of Israel:

2       ” The Spirit of the LORD spoke by me,

      And His word was on my tongue.

3       The God of Israel said,

      The Rock of Israel spoke to me:

      ‘ He who rules over men must be just,

      Ruling in the fear of God.

4       And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,

      A morning without clouds,2Sam23:1-4

      Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,

              By clear shining after rain.’

 

 

4     Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,

    I will fear no evil;

    For You are with me;

    Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

5     You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;

    You anoint my head with oil;

    My cup runs over.

6     Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me

    All the days of my life;

    And I will dwell in the house of the LORD

    Forever.

Focusing to finish with finesse

is my dream and determination

regardless of the enemy’s mess

I’m fired to debunk distraction.

 

My eyes are on Jesus Who’s in charge

He is the Author and Finisher.

I will not mind the foes that are at large.

I trust the Alpha and Omega.

 

I refuse to yield to distraction;

Be it of jealousy or disdain.

They will all lead to my promotion.

My difficulties will bring a gain.

 

Surely, I know that my God is faithful.

He will complete the work He’s begun.

Without a doubt my God is powerful.

Therefore my victory will run and run.

 

I declare war on the adversary

Yet, it’s not by might nor by power

God will propel me into victory.

My faith is, there’s a higher power.

 

Eye has not seen and ear has not heard

The matchless things He will do for me.

Therefore I hold on to what I’ve heard.

If He’s for me, who can be against me?

 

Ro8:31,32,37-39

 

Isaiah 50

7  ” For the Lord GOD will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.

 

Ezekiel 3

9 Like adamant stone, harder than flint, I have made your forehead; do not be afraid of them, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they are a rebellious house.”

 

17     ” Therefore prepare yourself and arise,

      And speak to them all that I command you.

      Do not be dismayed before their faces,

      Lest I dismay you before them.

18     For behold, I have made you this day

      A fortified city and an iron pillar,

      And bronze walls against the whole land —

      Against the kings of Judah,

      Against its princes,

      Against its priests,

      And against the people of the land.

19     They will fight against you,

      But they shall not prevail against you.

      For I am with you,” says the LORD, “to deliver you.”

Jeremiah 17-19

21   From that time Jesus began to show to His disciples that He must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day.

22   Then Peter took Him aside and began to rebuke Him, saying, “Far be it from You, Lord; this shall not happen to You!”

23   But He turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men.”

Matt16

59   Then He said to another, “Follow Me.”

    But he said, “Lord, let me first go and bury my father.”

60   Jesus said to him, “Let the dead bury their own dead, but you go and preach the kingdom of God.”

61   And another also said, “Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go and bid them farewell who are at my house.”

62   But Jesus said to him, “No one, having put his hand to the plow, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.”

Luke9:59-62

24   Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.25 And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.26 Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air.27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.

1Cor9:24-27

1    Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb12:1-2

Fenny in Concert. Hurry! Limited Space

A picture can preach a message and can be more than a thousand words.

fenny in Concert with a crowd

People were in the rafters and it spilled into the open. Even babes could not contain themselves.

Or was it, ‘If the adults will not come I will serenade the  babes to sleep?

You decide what this picture is saying.

 

 

Other possible sayings of this picture

 

Since he cannot preach to people he is preaching to bones like Ezekiel

 

Who is the captive audience?

 

If you cannot preach to one person, you are not qualified to preach to millions.

 

Fenny’s humble beginning.

 

It all started here.

It takes one to reach one.

 

Thank God I have an audience.

 

When the table is all set and the sumptuous sup is causing mouths to water and those invited are making excuses, go to the high ways and by ways, nooks and crannies  and bring in the lame, blind etc until my house is full.

 

Those who humble themselves will be exalted.

God’s Ways Are Not Our Ways (by Fenny West)

God’s ways are not our ways

” Fenny was Ireland’s first black, Pentecostal male nanny. now, that has got to be a first:) we had interesting, challenging and prayerful times together….”

 

 

I dare anyone to break that record. His ways are not our ways. Life’s difficult roads often lead to pleasant destinations. See what the Lord has done through the valley of the shadow of death. Visit my youtube Channel

The legend gospel singer /songwriter Andrae Crouch put it so succinctly: “through it all, through it all, I’ve learnt to trust in Jesus, I’ve learnt to trust in God….”

While I was going through the mill God, was birthing songs upon songs  in my spirit and using me to minister to others in various churches as He still does today. The enemy may meant it for evil but God uses the valley to spell victory. He uses the mess to write a message and the trials for triumph, the barriers for breakthroughs.

  • Job said, though He slay me, yet will i trust Him. when He had tested me, I shall come forth like gold. God’s word is so true.

  • It’s a spiritual warfareThose who put their trust in Him will not be put to shame.

  • So if you’re going through the mill, hang in there, looking unto Jesus, the author and Finisher of y9ur faith. He who has begun a good work in you will continue to work at it until He brings it to a glorious finale.

Light My Day, O Lord ( by Fenny West)

don't quit5 uphill don't quit6 Arise O Lord - Copy peace12Phil4 6 to 7

O Lord, my God.
You are the only wise God.
You are the Best of the best.
I call upon Your Name;
the Greatest and sweetest name of all.
I step into this day, knowing that You are there.
I may not know what the day holds; but I know who holds the day.

Light my day, O Lord
Make every crooked path straight for Your name’s sake.
For I cannot make it through without You.
You are my confidence; You are my hiding place.
You are my source, my wisdom and my light.

I yield my whole being into Your Hands;
Confident that Your Hands are the safest hands ever.
For with You I am secure and I have all I need.
I give You thanks and praise for the days gone bye.
For You have kept me even when I did not know.
Help me Lord to shine for You;
Avoiding anything that would bring dishonour to You.
In my weakness let Your unlimited strength abound.

Blessing, honour, majesty, dominion, wisdom;
Thanksgiving, praise and glory be to You,
The Ever Living, loving, faithful and powerful God.
