The Lord Is My Shepherd ( by Fenny West)

The Lord is my Shepherd and I am His sheep. Therefore I will never be in want. The Good Shepherd, who laid down His life for me, will surely supply all my needs according to his riches in glory. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, so no good thing will He withhold from me. I’m an heir of God and a Joint-heir with Christ, so whatever belongs to Him, belongs to me. All things are mine. 

The boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for me and I have a goodly heritage. He leads me to quiet waters, green pastures and to my desired haven, my Promised Land, my prepared place.

 I will never miss my way. He leads me in paths of righteousness, holiness, progress and Good Success, for His Name’s sake. I hear His voice saying to me, “This is the way, walk in it. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go. I will instruct you with My eyes.”

I am blessed in my going out and in my coming in. I fear no evil because He is always with me. I am inseparable from Him.

Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me, all the days of my life, in Jesus’ Name.

No Weakness Or Sickness ( by Fenny West)

No Weakness Or Sickness 

There is no room for weakness or sickness in this tabernacle of God. 

My body is the habitation of the Spirit of God. “He who is joined to the Lord is one Spirit.”

Therefore, God is the strength of my life. I am strong in Him and in His mighty power. That same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead is residing in me and quickens my mortal body. 

I am the habitation of God and no sickness or weakness or infirmity shall trespass this Divine Territory. 

I am a member of the body of Christ. My hands are an extension His Hands, vibrant and virile with healing virtues and anointed. My legs are an extension His legs and can’t be weak or infirm. They cannot malfunction, in Jesus’ Name. 

My eyes cannot be dim or blind because they belong to God. I have 20 20 vision-Eagle eyes. 

My heart functions to the perfection God made it, and so are my organs, cells and systems. 

I have a sound mind and my neurological system functions in a tip-top manner. My bones are strong never brittle. They are effective and efficient. My joints are performing at their peak. My metabolism is sound and so are my reproductive organs. 

I thank You, Lord, and give you praise that healing and health belong to me. They are my inheritance in Christ Jesus. By His stripes I was healed. You sent Your Word to heal me. Healing is the bread of the children. 

He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High, shall abide under the shadow of the the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my Refuge, my God in whom I trust.”

Surely, He has saved me from the fowler’s snare and from the perilous pestilence. His faithfulness is be my shield and my buckler. 

I will not be Afraid of the terror by night or arrow that flies by night. No plague – epidemic or Pandemic comes near God’s abode. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of God shall raise a standard against him. Greater is He in me than he that in this world. I hail from God, born of the Word that is powerful, dynamic, living, incorruptible, and medicine to my whole body. It permeates my whole being-spirit, soul and body. 

No weakness, sickness or infirmity, in the Matchless Name of Jesus. Amen and amen. 

I Love You, Lord (by Fenny West)

O Lord, I Love You

O Lord, I love You.
You are my Salvation,  my Redemption
my Righteousness, my Fortress
My Shelter, my Shield, my Strength, my Shepherd, my Stronghold, my impenetrable  Bulwark, my Hiding Place, my Security, my Peace,

my Assurance, my Source.

 Mighty God,
You are the light of my life, life of my life.
You are my shelter, shield,  

Stronghold and more than gold.
In You I live move and have my very being. You mean more than the world to me.  You are greater than the greatest,  higher than the highest, bigger than the biggest.

You beautiful beyond description, too marvellous for words. You are in comparable.
Yours, O Lord is the glory and honour, majesty and dominion.

Yours is the power, sovereignty and excellence.
The earth in all its fullness belongs to You.
You measure the earth with the span of your hands. You hold its waters in the hollow of your hand. You rule from sea to  sea. All the inhabitants are like grasshoppers. You set up kingdoms and  You pull them down.

The mountains skip like rams before You.

You hush raging seas with a whisper.

You declare the end from the beginning.

Nothing to Fear(3) ( by Fenny West)

Nothing to Fear


God did not give us a spirit of fear
The righteous are bold; they do not fear
Yea though I walk through dark vale, I will not fear.

The just shall live by faith
We  walk not by sight but by faith
The substance of things hope for is faith
The positive response to the word of God is faith.

No need to fear

I will not fear because You’re with me.
I will not fear because You are my strength
I will not fear because You are my light and my salvation.
I will not fear because You’re for me.
I will not fear because You’re in me.
There is no fear in love.
Perfect love casts away all fear.
Those who know their God shall be strong and will not fear.

 

7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. 2Tim1:7

 

Superior to Sickness and Disease ( by Fenny West)

Superior to Sickness and Disease

Superior to Sickness and Disease
By the power of the Holy Ghost
His Word is dynamic, working in me
It is Spirit and life, effective medicine.

Every infirmity, weakness, is terminated
By the same Spirit that Raised Jesus Christ
I am vitalised, Rejuvenated, by the Spirit
He daily renews my youth like the eagle’s.

If I drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt me.
No plague or virus can infect or affect me.
My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
No cancer or malfunction will desecrate it.

Christ died and rose to destroy  sickness
Christ died to destroy the devil’s works
He Rose to enforce the victory He won
Thanks be to God Who gives us the victory.

 

17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:17-18

4 Surely He has borne our griefs And carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed. Isa 53:4-5

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Col2:15

8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 1John 3:8

19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Luke 10:19

11 But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you. Rom8:11

Pray Without Ceasing ( by Fenny West)

Pray Without Ceasing

 

Pray without ceasing,

Always believing

That God is faithful,

Merciful, powerful

Exceeding abundantly able

To do far above what you can ask or think or imagine,

according to the power at work in you.

Pray without wavering,

without doubting.

Always trusting in the Most High.

He rewards those who come to Him in faith;

those who diligently seek Him;

Those who trust in His unfailing;

Those who pray in line with His Word.

Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.
13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen. Matt 6:9-13

Authority In Three Worlds ( by Fenny West)

Authority In Three Worlds

april Authority in thre worlds

All Authority In the three Worlds Is Ours
Permitted by the Father, Son and the Spirit
Regardless of what we see, we’re victors
In this Church age; we Reign and rule
Leaving a legacy for all time

9      Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,

10   that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,

11           and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phil2:9-11

We have authority in heaven, on earth and underneath the earth. In these unprecedented times, we need to remind ourselves and take our rightful place as the light of the world, salt of the earth and City on a hill that cannot be hidden. This is not a time for lukewarm Christianity. We must stand up to be counted without fear, timidity or half-heartedness. We must the bold as a lion. Stand up for what we believe. Paul said “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes …”

We must know and affirm who we are in Christ- more than conqueror, Victorious, able to do all things, sold-out to God, able soldiers of Christ, uncompromising like Daniel and his friends. Those who know their God shall be strong and they shall do great exploits. (Dan11:32). We must arise and shine in these dark days. We are still in the Church age and every machinations and strategies of the anti-christ spirit must be exposed, debunked and expelled in Jesus’ Name. We must exercise our authority in the Name of Jesus without any equivocation. We must stand up against any dress-rehearsal of the events that will happen after the rapture. What we bind here is bound in heaven and what we allow here is allowed in heaven. This is why we must intensify our prayers without ceasing so we are delivered from the hands of wicked and unreasonable men, collaborators and perpetrators.

Deceptions of the Last Hour
18 Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour.

18   And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.

19   And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” (Matt16:18-19)

Jesus has a Name above every other name and at the Name of Jesus every knee shall bow – of things in heaven, of things on earth and things underneath the earth. ( Phil2:9-11)

The kingdom of God suffers violence but the violent takes 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 even unto death.Rev12:11

We are in a spiritual warfare and need to be armed with the whole armour of God to stand in these evil last days. Eph6:10-18

So child of God, take authority in the Name of Jesus. Use that name boldly. Cast out demons, heal the sick and if you touch, eat drink any deadly thing, know without a shadow of doubt that you dwell in the secret place of the Most High and nothing can by any means hurt you. Don’t be afraid of principalities and powers.  They are under your feet. Jesus disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through the cross. ( Col2:19)

Let us Pray:

 

Father, I give you glory and honour for your goodness, love and abiding presence.

I thank You for the authority that You have given me in the three worlds. I know who I am, what I have and Whose I am in Christ Jesus.

No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me in judgement I will show to be in the wrong. When the enemy comes, like a flood Your Spirit will raise a standard against him.

Thank you for making me more than a conqueror. The righteous are as bold as the lion. Principalities and powers are under my feet. The blood of Jesus speaks for me. Greater is He in me that he that is in this world.

Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph and diffuses the fragrance of your presence wherever I go. If God be for me who can be against me?

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   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.

Hallelujah!

Summon Your power, O Lord ( By Fenny West)

Summon Your Power, O Lord

Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength
as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord
Part Your heavens and come down
Touch the mountains and let them smoke, O Lord, O Lord

Flash Your lightening, O Lord
Confuse all Your enemies
Shoot Your arrows, O Lord
And scatter, scatter, scatter every foe
Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord

Let a fire go before You
And burn up all  Your enemies, O Lord, O Lord
Reach down the mighty waters
Deliver those called by Your name, O Lord
O, Lord
May the zeal of the Lord of hosts
Bring this to pass to His glory, O Lord, O Lord

 

Psalms 68: The Glory of God in His Goodness to Israel To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.

1      Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.

2      As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3      But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.

4              Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him.

17   The chariots of God are twenty thousand, Even thousands of thousands; The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.

18   You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, Even from the rebellious, That the LORD God might dwell there.

19   Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah

20   Our God is the God of salvation; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.

21   But God will wound the head of His enemies, The hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in his trespasses.

Ps68:1-4,17-21

Summon your power, God; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before.

Bless the Lord, O My Soul ( by Fenny West)

Bless the Lord, O My Soul

Psalms 103: Praise for the LORD’s Mercies A Psalm of David.
1 Bless the LORD, O my soul; And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits:
3 Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases,
4 Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,
5 Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6 The LORD executes righteousness And justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known His ways to Moses, His acts to the children of Israel.
8 The LORD is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger, and abounding in mercy.
9 He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever.
10 He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor punished us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
12 As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
13 As a father pities his children, So the LORD pities those who fear Him.
14 For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like grass; As a flower of the field, so he flourishes.
16 For the wind passes over it, and it is gone, And its place remembers it no more.
17 But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him, And His righteousness to children’s children,
18 To such as keep His covenant, And to those who remember His commandments to do them.
19 The LORD has established His throne in heaven, And His kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.
21 Bless the LORD, all you His hosts, You ministers of His, who do His pleasure.
22 Bless the LORD, all His works, In all places of His dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!

What a Scripture and song to wake up to this morning!

This is a ministration to the Lord, predicated on the wonderful things He has done and how poignant it is at such a time as this when the whole world is being shaken and nations and its people have been forced indoors in fear and in hiding from an unseen enemy- Corona Virus . No one is spared- Nations, the rich or the poor, the church or governments, the millionaires or paupers.

In this unprecedented time it is easy to lament and point the finger at God or take it out on others and play the blame game like Adam and Eve did.

Let us meditate on this powerful and wonderful psalm which enjoins us to bless Lord and FORGET NOT His benefits and he enumerates the benefits. 

Looking at verses 3-5, there are wonderful benefits that we need to remind ourselves of even now amidst the storm and hurricane and fear that parades the streets and the bankruptcy, job losses that stare many in the face.

It is time to remind yourself of the goodness and greatness of your God. Remind yourself of what He has done for you in times past. Affirm these regardless of the present circumstances. He still cares. He still loves you. He does not change. He said: ”I am the Lord. I change not.”

Why should you bless the Lord?

1. Who forgives all your iniquities,

To know that ALL your sins are forgiven, regardless of what you may have done is the greatest blessing; to know that you have a right-standing with God; you have a clean slate; when God looks at you, He does not see what you used to be but He sees Jesus. Oh how marvellous, glorious and wonderful! It means you have peace with God and therefore the peace of God regardless of what happens around you. As far as the east is from the west so far He has removed your transgressions from you. ( Eph2:14, Phil4:6-7,Ps103:11)

This should fill you will serenity and assurance. You know your name is written in the Book of Life. And so you should not be afraid of death or any other circumstances. Your life is hidden in Christ in God. (Col3:3-4)

2. Who heals all your diseases:

You need to remind yourself even more so at such a time as this, that when Jesus died on the cross, He not only took your sins but also took your sickness and by His stripes you were healed. Hence, healing is your bread, your entitlement (Matt 15:26). You need to apply this truth to your life and your body frequently. Don’t wait until you feel any symptoms. Refuse any disease. Affirm that your body is the temple of God and sickness has no place in it. Say what God says about you: “Those who are in Zion shall not say I am sick (Isa 33:24). He has healed me of all my diseases. By His stripes I was healed (Isa 54:4-5, 1Pet2:24 ). That same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead indwells me and He that raised Christ from the dead quickens and  vitalises my mortal body, even by His Spirit Who dwells in me ( Ro8:11). None of these diseases shall alight on me ( Ex15:26). I am divine territory (1 Cor:19-20).

3.  “Who redeems your life from destruction.”

Oh, how powerful a Word from God to YOU today. Let this be a rhema to you- What God is saying to you today. Don’t just read it. Personalise it: “You have redeemed my life from destruction.”

Corona virus is on the rampage and destroying lives here and there. But you must stand firm, immovable, hopeful and assured of the Lord’s presence, love and care. Thank Him for what He has done for you a long time ago and no foe can undo what He has done.

Affirm: “I will not die but live to declare the works of the Lord ( Ps 118:17). My life is hidden in Christ in God. In my pathway there is life and not death ( Ps 16:11). The expectation of the righteous shall not be cut short (Prov 10:24,-23:18). I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living ( Ps 23:17). Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, because God is with me. His Word and His Spirit comfort me. He prepares a banquet for me even in the presence of my enemies. He has anointed my head with oil and my cup overflows. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. And I will dwell in the presence of the Lord forever In His presence is fullness of joy and at His right hand there are pleasures forevermore in Jesus’ Name.  Amen.” (( Ps 23:4-6  Ps16:11)

4. “Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.”

Oh what a wonderful truth! Remind yourself that God has crowned you with love and compassion. He loves you with an everlasting love. As   high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love towards you. He loves you with a great love. Thank Him for His love regardless of what you see happening around you. Never lose hope in Him. Put your trust in Him. Some may trust in princes, others in their wealth or accolades but your trust is in the Lord. (Ps146:3-7) As we have seen in the past few weeks everything that can be shaken has been shaken. You cannot depend on your wealth, business or position. Your trust should be in God and God alone. By all means, observe all the instructions of the Government with regards to hygiene and social distancing but at the end of the day your trust should be in the Lord and not in your precautions. Jer31:3,Eph1:4, John3:16, Ps103:11

5      Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

6      In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

Prov3:5-6

Jeremiah wrote:

7 ” Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, And whose hope is the LORD.
8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jer17:7-8

Put your hope in God. Even when it seems hopeless be undaunted. Watch what you say. Life and death are in the power of the tongue. (Prov18:21) Speak words of life, Words of faith. Abraham, against hope believed in hope. He called those things which be not as though they were. He refused to stagger at the promise of God through unbelief but was strong in faith, giving glory to God ( Rom4:17-19). The just shall live by faith ( Rom1:17).  God is your refuge and your fortress, your impenetrable bulwark ( Ps91:1-7). Those who put their trust in God shall not be put to shame (Ps25:3, Isa54:4, Joel2:26). You will not die before your time. Your destiny shall be fulfilled. You are a tree planted by the waters, spreading out your roots by the river, being nourished by the Word of God which is medicine to your body. Your leaf will remain green. You will not be anxious in the year of drought or Corona. You will not cease from yielding fruit. Even at this time when you are forced to retreat, you have retreated to advance. God will show you how to make the best of this time. He will make you creative, productive and innovative even in your quarantine and you will come out better than you went into the quarantine. You will demonstrate without a doubt that ” but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits. (Dan11:32)
All things work together for good to them that love God and who are the called according to purpose.” (Rom8:28)

5 “Who satisfies your mouth with good things.”

Many companies have gone under, many have lost their jobs and billions have been wiped off stock market holdings. Nevertheless, be not afraid. Don’t be desperate. Refuse to run helter-skelter. Know who you are in Christ and whose you are. Repeatedly affirm that the Lord is your Shepherd you will not want. The Good Shepherd will take care of His sheep.  He is Jehovah Jireh! Let this be your confession and assurance. Remember Isaac in the land of Gerar, when there was a great famine. He was tempted to run away like many others but God told him to stay there. He obeyed God and even sowed at such a time. The result was that he was blessed with a hundredfold return. Besides he became very successful. And after this triumph there were other oppositions and hindrances, but he dug his heels until God gave him room. 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;

 Gen26:12-13

So even at this time, affirm that God is your Source- not your job, the government or your business. Fix your eyes on the Lord.  And He will give you winning ideas that will catapult you to stardom. There are many people who have been laid off and then discovered their purpose thereafter. It is time for you to shine. You are the light of the world, a salt of the earth and a city on a hill.

Believers Are Salt and Light

13   “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14   “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

15   Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.

16   Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

Matt5:13-16

1      Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.

2      For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Isa60:1-2

 Cast not away your confidence. God is in control of all that concerns you. You will not go under for going over. Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. You are more than a conqueror. Greater is He that is in you than the Corona in the world.

6. “So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s..”

The eagle has a lesson to teach us at such a time as this.

He is the king of birds of the air and lives for long ( 20-30 years). However when it reaches its mid-life, its feathers become loose, weak and threadbare. At this point it goes to a remote mountain region and plucks out the old feathers and remains there until they grow back. It also beats its beak on rocks to remove the old worn out beak until new ones grow back. It is a painful ordeal but needful if it is to renew its strength. After this “quarantine”, it comes back, bounces back with a new life, a new zeal, impetus, Vim and drive for a ‘second wind’. It becomes more resilient than it went into the molten stage. It is like a New Life.

This is what awaits you if you will not despair at this time of quarantine but bask in the presence of the Lord. See yourself as an eagle saint. You are more than a conqueror.  As the ferocious winds and storms that kill other birds, carries the eagle to glory so will the storms of life carry you to higher dimension.

It understands the wind current and just waits for the right time to spread its wings to be carried by the wind to its desired destination.

 So wait on God and renew your strength like the eagle. Bounce back at the end of this season stronger, tougher, wiser, with sweeter songs composed during the Corona outbreak. Write a best-seller at this time when you are shut in. Be one of those who invented a Corona survival kit or one of those who made a great difference to other people’s lives in their time of dire need. Show that He Who lives in you makes a difference. Be bold to testify about the hope and confidence you have in God.  Look for opportunities to lead people to Christ. Be not ashamed of the gospel.

10 ” He found him in a desert land And in the wasteland, a howling wilderness; He encircled him, He instructed him, He kept him as the apple of His eye.
11 As an eagle stirs up its nest, Hovers over its young, Spreading out its wings, taking them up, Carrying them on its wings,

28 Have you not known? Have you not heard? The everlasting God, the LORD, The Creator of the ends of the earth, Neither faints nor is weary. His understanding is unsearchable.
29 He gives power to the weak, And to those who have no might He increases strength.
30 Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall,
31 But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isa40:28-31

So what will you do during this quarantine?

Bless the Lord, all the time.

Look for opportunities to turn this great trial into a great triumph according to the word of God. Go from strength to strength, faith to faith and glory to glory. ( 2Cor2:14, Ps84:6-7, Hag2:9)

Remind yourself of ALL His benefits:

  1. Forgiveness,

  2. His Healing and restoration

  3. redemption of your life from destruction,

  4. His Providence,

  5. His unfailing love and

  6. renewal of your life like the eagle’s.

Alleluia!
