Fight For Your Field ( by Fenny West)

Fight for Your field

To God totally yield

Know He is your Shield

The whole armour wield

To Satan never yield

Stay in your field.

 

Fight with God’s might

Fight for what is right

Victory is in sight

Fight in your night

Fight when it’s bright

Fight even if it’s tight.

 

 

Fight for your family

Defeat your enemy

Fight for your purity

Fight for your testimony.

 

Fight for your integrity

Fight for your unity

Fight with importunity

Fight with every opportunity

Know your God is Almighty

Know you’re destined for victory.

11 And after him was Shammah the son of Agee the Hararite. The Philistines had gathered together into a troop where there was a piece of ground full of lentils. So the people fled from the Philistines.
12 But he stationed himself in the middle of the field, defended it, and killed the Philistines. So the LORD brought about a great victory.
2Sam23:11-12

Pursuing Purpose with Passion ( by Fenny West)

Pursuing Purpose With Passion

Pursuing Purpose with Passion

Results in a successful completion with finesse

 

The Wall Completed

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

 

2      The LORD was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

3      And his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made all he did to prosper in his hand.

4      So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority.

5      So it was, from the time that he had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the LORD was on all that he had in the house and in the field.

 

21   But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

22   And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners who were in the prison; whatever they did there, it was his doing.

23           The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper. Gen39:2-5,21-23

Paul’s Valedictory

6      For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand.

7      I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

8              Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.2Tim4:6-8

Paul

“You know, from the first day that I came to Asia, in what manner I always lived among you,

19   serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears and trials which happened to me by the plotting of the Jews;

20   how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house,

21   testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

22   And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,

23   except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.

24   But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

Acts 20:18-24

Go For Gold ( by Fenny West)

Who Says You’re Too Old to Dream?

No matter how old you are, and how far the dream, you can still go for gold.

Those planted in God’s house shall flourish in His courts. They will still bring forth fruit in their old age.

They will remain fresh and green, fat and Flourishing, to demonstrate the faithfulness of God.

Oaks of Righteousness shall be strong in the face of storms. They are fruitful trees destined to become forests.

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. Phil3:13-14

His Faithfulness Is Sure ( by Fenny West)

His faithfulness is sure
And His loving kindness endures.
His goodness is without measure
And His nearness assures.
His loveliness is beyond compare
And His truthfulness reassures.
His greatness no one can fathom
And His brightness radiates His kingdom.

 

 

21 This I recall to my mind, Therefore I have hope.
22 Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, Because His compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.
24 ” The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, ” Therefore I hope in Him!” Lam3:21-24

Goals Help You Go ( by Fenny West)

Goals Help You Go

Without Goals You Can’t Go
Places right, You ought to go;
Achieve want you want to achieve
Receive what you desire to receive. 

Godly goals propel you in the right direction 
Bring you the right instructions 
Powered by the Holy Spirit;
Emanating from the Spirit of truth. 

With Godly goals you say the right things, 
And set the right targets and standards;
Pray the right way, do the right things
associate with the right people, 
Go to the right places at the right time. 

With Godly goals, good will come to you;
Evil will be repelled, warded away. 
With Godly goals, God will be for you;
And if He is for you, who can be against you? 

Learn the Lesson of Forty ( by Fenny West)

Learn the Lesson of Forty

   

Noah was in the ark and rain fell

for forty days and forty nights.

It was a test for Noah

who must have wondered,

“Has God forgotten us here?”

But the time came and the water assuaged

and he saw dry land.

God does not forget.

 

For forty years they wandered

In the wilderness

To get Egypt out of them

It was a test that only a few passed.

The Red Sea was a test which they failed.

But God was merciful. and the crossed over.

  

 

  

Moses left for forty days

It was a test but the people failed

They made idols and worshiped them

Thinking Moses had overstayed.

They courted God displeasure.

 

Learn the Lesson of Forty

  

Twelve spies were sent to spy

The Promised Land, the Land flowing

With milk and honey.

They went for forty days.

It was another test

But unbeknown to them.

Only Joshua and Caleb passed the test.

The rest flunked it with distinction.

They preferred Egypt, bondage, slavery…

They spouted an evil report

That was beyond imagination.

They saw through the enemy’s eyes

Rather through the eyes of God.

The exaggerated the negative,

spread doom and gloom.

They made the heart of the people melt;

Made the majority wail, lament

 Dispirited, depressed and desperate.

 

27 Then they told him, and said: “We went to the land where you sent us. It truly flows with milk and honey, and this is its fruit.
28 Nevertheless the people who dwell in the land are strong; the cities are fortified and very large; moreover we saw the descendants of Anak there.
29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.”

31 But the men who had gone up with him said, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we.”
32 And they gave the children of Israel a bad report of the land which they had spied out, saying, “The land through which we have gone as spies is a land that devours its inhabitants, and all the people whom we saw in it are men of great stature.
33 There we saw the giants (the descendants of Anak came from the giants); and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight.”

How did Joshua and Caleb pass the test?

30 Then Caleb quieted the people before Moses, and said, “Let us go up at once and take possession, for we are well able to overcome it.” Num13:

6 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes;

7 and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land.
8 If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’
9 Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.” Num14:6-9

And when it was time to distribute the Land, Caleb did not forget what God had promised him 45 five years previously. He maintained his confession and reminded Joshua what God had said:

“You know the word which the LORD said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.
7 I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart.
8 Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God.
9 So Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children’s forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.’
10 And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.
11 As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in.
12 Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said.”
13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave Hebron to Caleb the son of Jephunneh as an inheritance.
14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite to this day, because he wholly followed the LORD God of Israel.(Josh14:6-14)

 

 

Learn the Lesson of Forty

Goliath came and tested Israel for forty days.

The soldiers including King Saul

Quaked in their boots.

They were hopeless and hapless.

They saw no way out.

Fear gripped them, emasculated them

And almost strangulated them.

It was a test they failed until David showed up.

 

 

David had a different spirit.

He knew who he was.

He knew he had a covenant with God.

He knew God was with him.

He knew Goliath was uncircumcised.

And hence vulnerable.

He knew it was a test

And was determined to pass the test.

“Who is this uncircumcised Philistine

 to defy the armies of the living God?

 “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.
46 This day the LORD will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.
47 Then all this assembly shall know that the LORD does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the LORD’s, and He will give you into our hands.”

David used what he had

and spoke what God said about him and won.

He used his sling and stone

And soon Goliath was toast,

He bit the dust.

 

David turned the light of Israel on

When he cut off the head of Goliath

Just like he had said.

God fought for him because he took sides with God

 and saw through God’s eyes.

Thank God for Jesus, our heavenly David

God’s beloved Son.

He was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit

where He was tempted by the devil for forty days.

But He knew the end from the beginning.

He knew it was a test

and He passed His test with flying colours:

“Man shall not live by bread alone

but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.

Thou shalt not tempt the Lord your God.

Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God and Him only shalt thou serve.”

 

He whipped the devil, left right and centre and passed the test for us.

Learn the Lesson of Forty

 

Forty days after He rose, He ascended to heaven. The disciples were tested sore. They went into hiding, afraid of their lives. Jesus appeared to them after He rose from the dead- three days after His death, just like He had said. He appeared to them at various times for forty days, when He ascended. And ten days later, the Holy Spirit came and now indwells those who received Him.

This is why we will not fail. Because it is not by might nor by power but by the Holy Spirit.

The Comforter- Another One like Jesus- is inside of us.

He is the Standby, the Strengthener, the Advocate, the Helper, the Intercessor, the Teacher, and the Guide. He is the Greater One who dwells in us. Through Him, we are overcomers, more than conquerors. He gives us the advantage, any day, anytime, anywhere.

Thanks be to God who always causes us to pass any test and triumph through our tests.

 

When you are hard-pressed, know that you will not be crushed. and when perplexed, be not in despair or despondent or depressed. when you are persecuted, you are not abandoned. He said I will never leave you nor forsake you until the end of the age.

Through your tests, testimonies will abound. When you are knocked down, know that you are not knocked out. you are still in the race. Press on for the mark of the prize of the high calling in Christ Jesus. Always look to Jesus, the Author and Finisher of your faith.

Say to yourself, ” No temptation has come to me but that which is common to man. And God is faithful who will also through the temptation, make a way of escape, that I will be able to bear.”

Remember, Job was also tested and in the end, we know:

10 And the LORD restored Job’s losses when he prayed for his friends. Indeed the LORD gave Job twice as much as he had before.
11 Then all his brothers, all his sisters, and all those who had been his acquaintances before, came to him and ate food with him in his house; and they consoled him and comforted him for all the adversity that the LORD had brought upon him. Each one gave him a piece of silver and each a ring of gold.
12 Now the LORD blessed the latter days of Job more than his beginning; for he had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, one thousand yoke of oxen, and one thousand female donkeys.
13 He also had seven sons and three daughters.
14 And he called the name of the first Jemimah, the name of the second Keziah, and the name of the third Keren-Happuch.
15 In all the land were found no women so beautiful as the daughters of Job; and their father gave them an inheritance among their brothers.
16 After this Job lived one hundred and forty years, and saw his children and grandchildren for four generations.
17 So Job died, old and full of days.

He also said:25 For I know that my Redeemer lives, And He shall stand at last on the earth; Job19:25

… I will wait, Till my change comesJob14:14

10 But He knows the way that I take; When He has tested me, I shall come forth as gold.
Job23:10 29 When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person. Glory!

Build on the Foundation of the Word ( by Fenny West)

Build on the Foundation of the Word

Unless the Lord builds your house

It is like a tottering fence;

Like a house built by a mouse,

Like a city without defence.

Unless you’re standing on the Word,

You’re building castles in the air

And vanity will be your reward

The truth in this matter is crystal clear.

As for me and my household

We will let the Lord build our house

So that we can stand, strong and bold;

When the storm and wind blow on every house.

We choose to build on the foundation of the Word,

Regardless of what the  world says.

We choose to be guided by the counsel of the God

And hold fast to what God commands and says.

 

 

 

Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. Amen

Take the shield of faith

and quench every flaming arrow of the foe.

Put on the shoes of the Gospel of peace

with a sure-footed stability,

declaring and announcing what God has done,

is doing and will do.

Don’t forget to take the Sword of the Spirit

which is the Word of God.

Cut down every demonic tree 

planted by the enemy.

Pray! Pray!! Pray!!! With all kinds of prayer.

Striving for a Crown 

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. 1Cor.9:24 -27

Pressing Toward the Goal 

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. Phil3:12-14

Paul’s Valedictory 

6 For I am already being poured out as a drink offering , and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought the good fight , I have finished the race , I have kept the faith. 8 Finally , there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness , which the Lord , the righteous Judge , will give to me on that Day , and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. 2Tim.4:6-8

David Prevails over Goliath

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone , and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David. 51 Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine , took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him , and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead , they fled. 1Sam.17:50-51
