THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL FLOURISH

The righteous shall ever flourish.

They shall never ever perish.

They shall remain fresh and green,

More than any eyes have seen;

More than any ears have heard;

More than any mind can comprehend.

Even at old age,

They’ll be wine that’s vintage;

Tasting sweeter and sweeter with age.

Disdain brings them gain.

Imprisonment becomes a ladder to the palace, like Joseph.

Opposition births promotion, productivity and prosperity.

Barriers birth blessings, beauty and boldness.

Ferocious winds carry them like eagles, as they soar to untold heights.

They’re always wise and find a place by Him where they stand upon a rock.

They’ll be fruitful and youthful at any age; at any stage.

Because of the sterner stuff they’re made.

They go from glory to glory, Beholding daily the Face of the Holy.

They make the valley of Bacca, a place of spring and  spring-board for elevation.

In the furnace they are refined, rekindled, redirected, rejuvenated, repositioned and revived to come forth like gold, like Job of old.

Their set-backs are set-ups for a lift up.

As trees of righteousness, they grow as Cedars of Lebanon and become  a forest of rest.

They will always see God’s faithfulness, goodness and lovingkindness.

And at night they will have a song to cheer those that mourn.

Yes, as Trees of Righteousness, they have a glorious destiny- becoming a stalwarts and great success.

They leave a lasting God-glorifying legacy. The righteous shall flourish!

Let’s Go To the Other Side

https://inspiration4generations.wordpress.com/2015/06/14/lets-go-to-the-other-side-by-fenny-west/

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

Was the word of the Master

So no matter what betide

I will surely and steadily cross over.

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

The Land flowing with milk and honey.

SO regardless of the storm on the ocean wide

I am coming back with a testimony.

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

Is the word of my Maker

When more do I need when He’s on my side?

I will therefore go higher and higher.

 

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

If He says ‘Yes’ who can say ‘No’?

So on this mountain I will ride.

Regardless of Goliath or foes.

 

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

Come storm, wind or fire

In the word of God I will abide

Until I obtain His and my desire.

 

 

Let’s Go To the Other Side

God’s word will never fail

I will stand even when I am tried

And on eagle’s wings I will assail.

 

Let Us Go to the Other Side

That other shall be my portion

So I see with the eyes of faith, the other side

And press on and on despite the opposition.

 

 

 

8       Now the just shall live by faith;

      But if anyone draws back,

      My soul has no pleasure in him.”

Heb10:38

17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

Rom1:17

7 For we walk by faith, not by sight. 2Cor5:7

 

 

 

 

35   On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”36 Now when they had left the multitude, they took Him along in the boat as He was. And other little boats were also with Him.37 And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling.38 But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?”

39   Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm.40 But He said to them, “Why are you so fearful? How is it that you have no faith?”41 And they feared exceedingly, and said to one another, “Who can this be, that even the wind and the sea obey Him!”

1     Then they came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the Gadarenes.

Mark4:35-5:1

 

19   Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast it out?”

20   So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

God Has Done Great Things (by C.H. Spurgeon)

God Has Done Great Things

healing i receive He lifted me ps63 Olord you are my god1 worship1 CG7A CG2E

The Lord hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.” Psalm 126:3

Some Christians are sadly prone to look on the dark side of everything, and to dwell more upon what they have gone through than upon what God has done for them. Ask for their impression of the Christian life, and they will describe their continual conflicts, their deep afflictions, their sad adversities, and the sinfulness of their hearts, yet with scarcely any allusion to the mercy and help which God has vouchsafed them. But a Christian whose soul is in a healthy state, will come forward joyously, and say, “I will speak, not about myself, but to the honour of my God. He hath brought me up out of an horrible pit, and out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, and established my goings: and he hath put a new song in my mouth, even praise unto our God. The Lord hath done great things for me, whereof I am glad.” Such an abstract of experience as this is the very best that any child of God can present. It is true that we endure trials, but it is just as true that we are delivered out of them. It is true that we have our corruptions, and mournfully do we know this, but it is quite as true that we have an all-sufficient Saviour, who overcomes these corruptions, and delivers us from their dominion. In looking back, it would be wrong to deny that we have been in the Slough of Despond, and have crept along the Valley of Humiliation, but it would be equally wicked to forget that we have been through them safely and profitably; we have not remained in them, thanks to our Almighty Helper and Leader, who has brought us “out into a wealthy place.” The deeper our troubles, the louder our thanks to God, who has led us through all, and preserved us until now. Our griefs cannot mar the melody of our praise, we reckon them to be the bass part of our life’s song, “He hath done great things for us, whereof we are glad.”

Fertile Field of Delight ( by C. H. Spurgeon)

Fertile Field of Delight

keep your dream alive a looking back to give thanks3 goals 2

The kindness and love of God our Saviour.” Titus 3:4

How sweet it is to behold the Saviour communing with his own beloved people! There can be nothing more delightful than, by the Divine Spirit, to be led into this fertile field of delight. Let the mind for an instant consider the history of the Redeemer’s love, and a thousand enchanting acts of affection will suggest themselves, all of which have had for their design the weaving of the heart into Christ, and the intertwisting of the thoughts and emotions of the renewed soul with the mind of Jesus. When we meditate upon this amazing love, and behold the all-glorious Kinsman of the Church endowing her with all his ancient wealth, our souls may well faint for joy. Who is he that can endure such a weight of love? That partial sense of it which the Holy Spirit is sometimes pleased to afford, is more than the soul can contain; how transporting must be a complete view of it! When the soul shall have understanding to discern all the Saviour’s gifts, wisdom wherewith to estimate them, and time in which to meditate upon them, such as the world to come will afford us, we shall then commune with Jesus in a nearer manner than at present. But who can imagine the sweetness of such fellowship? It must be one of the things which have not entered into the heart of man, but which God hath prepared for them that love him. Oh, to burst open the door of our Joseph’s granaries, and see the plenty which he hath stored up for us! This will overwhelm us with love. By faith we see, as in a glass darkly, the reflected image of his unbounded treasures, but when we shall actually see the heavenly things themselves, with our own eyes, how deep will be the stream of fellowship in which our soul shall bathe itself! Till then our loudest sonnets shall be reserved for our loving benefactor, Jesus Christ our Lord, whose love to us is wonderful, passing the love of women.

Keep Your Dream Alive (by Fenny West)

dream big keep your dream alive keep your dream alive 1 cross resurrection empty tomb4 sunrise7

Keep your dream alive

It matters that you are alive

God is on your side

So on the waves ride.

 

Keep your dream alive

You will not just survive but thrive

God is supporting you

So who can be against you?

 

Keep your dream Alive

No matter what betide

You have what it takes

Despite past mistakes.

 

Keep your dream alive

and you will arrive

There shall be a resurrection

and mammoth manifestation.

 

10 that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death,11 if, by any means, I may attain to the resurrection from the dead.

12   Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Phil3:10-14

15   So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days.16 And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God.

Neh6:15-16

4     Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. 2Cor2:14

Glory be to the Most High!

 

9          But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy. 1Pet2:9-10

10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Eph2:10

.30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption – 1Cor1:30

.17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20        Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.2Cor5:17-21

 

14        Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place.15 For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. 2Cor2:14-15

12 giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,14 in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.

Col1:12-14

  1. There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. Ro8:1-231        What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?36 As it is written:              We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

  2. 37        Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ro8:

  3.               ” For Your sake we are killed all day long;

  4. 28        And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.29 For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.30 Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified.

1     Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.2 Beloved, now we are children of God; and it has not yet been revealed what we shall be, but we know that when He is revealed, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is.3 And everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

1John3:1-3

You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world 1John4:4

4 For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.1John5:4

On Him you can depend.

H refines in the fire

To bring forth His desire

Night or day

He is the way.

And He makes a way

Where there seems no way.

 

 

He remains faithful

Powerful, wonderful

And dependable,

Exceedingly abundantly able

In the sunshine of prosperity

And in the midnight of adversity.

He can be trusted to keep against that day

That committed to His loving way.

All hail the great God- the King

 All hail the mighty God-The King of kings.

 

He is Lord of the Sunrise

And Lord of the Sunset

With Him there are no surprises

And my expectation will be met.

Like the nightingale

My songs will set the sail

For me to go from glory to glory

To the glory of the Lord of Glory.

13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Phil4:13

31        What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?

37   Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Ro8:31-32,37-39

“Have faith in God.23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.Mark11:22-23

“Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.21 However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”

Matt17:20-21

26   But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matt19:26

23   Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

Mark9:23

 

22 Then the multitude rose up together against them; and the magistrates tore off their clothes and commanded them to be beaten with rods.23 And when they had laid many stripes on them, they threw them into prison, commanding the jailer to keep them securely.24 Having received such a charge, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks.

25   But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed.27 And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself.28 But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.”

29   Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.30 And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”

31   So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.”32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house.33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized.34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.

Acts16:22-34

 

1     There was a famine in the land, besides the first famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Abimelech king of the Philistines, in Gerar.

2     Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you.3 Dwell in this land, and I will be with you and bless you; for to you and your descendants I give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father.4 And I will make your descendants multiply as the stars of heaven; I will give to your descendants all these lands; and in your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed;5 because Abraham obeyed My voice and kept My charge, My commandments, My statutes, and My laws.”

6          So Isaac dwelt in Gerar.

12        Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.13 The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous;14 for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him. Gen26:1-6,12-14
