Pass the Test You are Set (by Fenny West)

Pass the Test you are Set

In your journey of life 

Be like Joshua and Caleb 

See through the eyes of God. 

See the exceeding goodness, 

Of the Promised Land, 

Despite the giants in the Land. 

If God be for you, 

Who can be against you? 

There will be temptation 

To take sides with the foe

And magnify the problems

To bring an Evil Report:

“The people are stronger;

We are just not able. 

The cities are walled. 

We are like grasshoppers 

In ours eyes and in their sight.” 

Don’t fall

Pass the test you are set

Forty is a number for test

Rebel not against the Lord

Do not doubt your calling. 

Do not see Egypt as option, 

Or worse still better than Canaan. 

Do not trigger your tears

Or look for sympathy 

Throw not a pity party. 

Be not a misery gut. 

Do not start a rebellion 

Or an insurrection. 

Be like a soldier of Christ

Say what He said about you

“I can do all things through Christ…”

If God be for me, who can be against me? 

The Lord is my light and my salvation. 

The Lord is the strength of my life. 

When my enemies come to eat up my flesh, they stumble and fall. 

When war breaks out against me I will remain confident. 

He makes my wars to cease. 

He breaks the bows of my enemies in two, and burns their chariots in His fire. 

He tells me, “Be still and know that I am God. I will be exalted amongst the nations. 

God is my refuge and strength;

My ever-present help in trouble

Though the mountain be carried

Into the midst of the sea

I shall not be moved or perturbed. 

Yes though I walk through

 the valley of the shadow of death

I will fear no evil because God is with me. 

No weapon fashioned against me, or contrived against me shall prosper or prevail. 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the almighty.

 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God in whom I trust. 

His faithfulness will be shield and buckler. He will cover me with His feathers and Under His wings I find refuge. 

Surely He will save me from the fowler snare and from the perilous pestilence. 

I will not be afraid of the terror by night or the arrow that flies by day or the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 

A thousand may fall at my side, 

Ten thousand at my right hand, 

But no evil will befall me. 

Because I have made the Lord my dwelling place and my refuge, no harm will befall house. 

He has given His angels charge over me

As ministering spirits, to serve me at all times. 

I give them commands and they obey. 

They lift me up with their hands and I do not strike my feet against any stone. I do not stumble or wobble, in Jesus’ Name. 

Because He had said:”I will never leave you, nor forsake you until the end of the age.” Therefore, I can boldly say, I am not alone. And will never be alone. God is with me, in me and for me. 

Because, He had said “All things work together for good to those who love God and who are the called according to purpose, all things are working together for my good. I will never be disadvantaged. The Helper, Standby, intercessor, Strengthener, Guide and Teacher resides in me. He gives me the advantage and cutting edge. He makes me ten times better than my peers. As He is so am I in this world. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I am the Head and not the tail. Whoever is born of God overcomes this world. And this is the victory that overcomes the world, even my faith. I walk by faith and not by sight. Through my God I shall do valiantly. He is the One who treads down my enemies. Nay in all these things, we are more than conquerors. Therefore neither death nor life, nor height nor depth, nor principalities nor powers  nor angels nor things present  nor things to come, nothing shall separate me from the love of God in Christ Jesus. Christ in me, my hope of glory. I am Sufficient in His sufficiency. The battle is not mine but the Lord’s. 

The Lord delights in me and every place the soles of my feet treads is mine. He has gone ahead of me to make every crooked parts straight. When I go through the rivers I will not drown. The Everlasting Arms are underneath. When I go through the fire, the flame will not kindle on me. Like Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, I am coming out with the , refined like gold. The fires will set me free to not only fulfil vision but cause unbelievers to see the Son of God in my circumstance and give Him praise and surrender to Him. 

Besides, my resilience will bring about my testimonies and promotion and legacy for all time. 

Psalms 139:14

“I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.”

I am complete in Christ. I am God’s masterpiece created for good works foreordained for me. 

I shall not fail. I was born to win. Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph. I am God-inside minded. I will whip any Goliath that rears his head, like David of old. The Kingdom of God may suffer violence, but the violent take it by force. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony, that they loved not their lives unto death. 

Christ is my life. If the Spirit of He who raised Christ from the dead indwells me, that same Spirit who raised Christ from the dead will vitalize my dream, my body, my business, my bank account, my vision, and my purpose. I shall not die but live to declare the works of my God. I shall fulfill my dream and my purpose. No foe can dislodge me. I am focused on Jesus-the Author and Finisher of my faith. And the good work He has begun in me, He will bring to fruition. Forward ever. Backward never!

I am going from glory to glory and from strength to strength. The glory of this latter house shall surpass the former and God will give His peace in this place-nothing missing and nothing broken-Shalom, in Jesus’ Name, Amen. 

Champions from Zion (by Fenny West)

Champions from Zion

As a Champion from Zion, 
I have a heart for Judah’s Lion
Who dwells in my heart
And directs my path. 

I go where He bids
Do what He commands. 
On His Word I feed. 
On His principles, I stand. 

I fear no evil or danger; so I dare, 
Because He’s always with me. 
He did not give me a spirit of fear
His rod and His staff they comfort me

I mount up and Soar on eagle’s wings
and leap over walls and run through troops.

In the storm and rain, you will hear me sing
My spirit is always elated, never droops.

Come join this company of champions

It is yours for the asking in Jesus’ Name

Come bathe in the River of Life for New Life

For this purpose the Son of Man, Son of God came.

4     Blessed are they that dwell in thy house: they will be still praising thee. Selah.

5     Blessed is the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.

6     Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain also filleth the pools.

7     They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God.

Ps84:4-7

20   Look upon Zion, the city of our solemnities: thine eyes shall see Jerusalem a quiet habitation, a tabernacle that shall not be taken down; not one of the stakes thereof shall ever be removed, neither shall any of the cords thereof be broken.

21   But there the glorious LORD will be unto us a place of broad rivers and streams; wherein shall go no galley with oars, neither shall gallant ship pass thereby.

22   For the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver, the LORD is our king; he will save us.

23   Thy tacklings are loosed; they could not well strengthen their mast, they could not spread the sail: then is the prey of a great spoil divided; the lame take the prey.

24   And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.

Isa33:20-24

22   But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels,

23   To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect,

24   And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.

Heb12:22-24

Psalms 126:

1     When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.

2     Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.

3     The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.

4     Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.

5     They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.

6     He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.

Ps126:1-6

14   Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

2Cor2:14

57But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1Cor15:57

33These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the worldJohn16:33

28   And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.

31   What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

32   He that spared not 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 lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth.

35   Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

37   Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that 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 creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.Ro8:28,31-32,33,35,37-39
