Oaks of Righteousness Shall Stand ( by Fenny West)

Oaks of Righteousness Shall Stand

 

Oaks of righteousness

Shall stand in the fierce wind

Through His great faithfulness

Abounding grace they’ll find.

They’ll grow tall and strong

Like cedars of Lebanon.

At night they’ll have a song

to cheer those that mourn.

His word, their nourishment

His Spirit, their comfort

His love so permanent

Fiery darts come to nought.

They are the trees of the Lord

His treasured possession

They are watered by the Lord

In famine or recession.

They will never perish

But always flourish

Bringing forth fruit

In their season.

Isa61:3 That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”

We Speak Wisdom ( by Fenny West)

We Speak Wisdom

Of the Kingdom;

Foolishness to the world

Wisdom to those born of the Word

And called out of the world.

 We speak what we believe

Not what we see, feel, or sense.

We speak what we perceive and have received

Which naturally may not make sense.

We speak the mind of God

The counsel of God,

The oracles of God –

 Who we are in Him

What we have in Him

Where we’re at in Him.

We see beyond the natural.

We see through the eyes of God

We do not speak what is temporary or contrary,

but the things which are ours; things consistent with the Word-

the things which are revealed,

our inheritance; the things which are supernatural.

 {2:7} But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom,] which God ordained before the world unto our glory: . { God. {2:12} Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.

An August Occasion (by Fenny West)

An August Occasion

An August Occasion

Unparalleled in your life

Great things shall be done

Unseen by you and those around you

Supernatural things

Take it and run with it

 

18 ” Do not remember the former things, Nor consider the things of old.

19 Behold, I will do a new thing, Now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness And rivers in the desert.Isa43:18-19

Receive Rhema ( by Fenny West)

“Go Beyond the Logos to the Rhema;

from what He had said to what is being said,

because the rhema, acted upon,

has a lifting power. 

It will lift you from the premise of a promise to a place of realisation and actualisation and manifestation.”

21 Your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ” This is the way, walk in it,” Whenever you turn to the right hand Or whenever you turn to the left. Isa 30:21

8 I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. Ps 32:8

The Man Born Blind Healed

6 When He had said these things, He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
7 And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing.
8 Therefore the neighbors and those who previously had seen that he was blind said, “Is not this he who sat and begged?”
9 Some said, “This is he.” Others said, “He is like him.” He said, “I am he.”
10 Therefore they said to him, “How were your eyes opened?”
11 He answered and said, “A Man called Jesus made clay and anointed my eyes and said to me, ‘Go to the pool of Siloam and wash.’ So I went and washed, and I received sight.”John 9:6-11

Lazarus Raised from the Dead

39 Jesus said, “Take away the stone.” Martha, the sister of him who was dead, said to Him, “Lord, by this time there is a stench, for he has been dead four days.”
40 Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?”
41 Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted up His eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me.
42 And I know that You always hear Me, but because of the people who are standing by I said this, that they may believe that You sent Me.”
43 Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”
44 And he who had died came out bound hand and foot with graveclothes, and his face was wrapped with a cloth. Jesus said to them, “Loose him, and let him go.” John11:39-44

Christ Is Preached to an Ethiopian
26 Now an angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, saying, “Arise and go toward the south along the road which goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza.” This is desert.
27 So he arose and went. And behold, a man of Ethiopia, a eunuch of great authority under Candace the queen of the Ethiopians, who had charge of all her treasury, and had come to Jerusalem to worship,
28 was returning. And sitting in his chariot, he was reading Isaiah the prophet.
29 Then the Spirit said to Philip, “Go near and overtake this chariot.”
30 So Philip ran to him, and heard him reading the prophet Isaiah, and said, “Do you understand what you are reading?”
31 And he said, “How can I, unless someone guides me?” And he asked Philip to come up and sit with him.
32 The place in the Scripture which he read was this: ” He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; And as a lamb before its shearer is silent, So He opened not His mouth.
33 In His humiliation His justice was taken away, And who will declare His generation? For His life is taken from the earth.”
34 So the eunuch answered Philip and said, “I ask you, of whom does the prophet say this, of himself or of some other man?”
35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached Jesus to him.
36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, “See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?”
37 Then Philip said, “If you believe with all your heart, you may.” And he answered and said, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.”
38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him.
39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
40 But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.

Acts8:26-40

God’s Mind is Full of You ( by Fenny West)

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jer 29:11

4 What is man that You are mindful of him, And the son of man that You visit him? Ps8:4

God has a good plan for you and me. His thoughts towards us are of peace, growth, development, fulfilment, joy unspeakable and full of glory.

But we need to find out God’s Mind, thoughts and plans towards us so that we can focus on them. It is also important that  we know the difference between facts and truth.  Often the enemy will focus on the facts about us which may not be the truth of God’s Word concerning us. As you dwell on who God says you are and what you have in Christ, you are transformed from glory to glory to become what you have focused on.

Know that if God is for you, no one can be against you. Obstacles will turn out to be triggers for triumph. Opposition will turn out to be pillars and platforms for your promotion, because His thoughts towards you are not evil. And regardless of the ploys and diabolical strategies of the devil, as you fix your eyes on Jesus-the Author and Finisher of your faith, you will come out victorious.

Yes, troubles do come; they come to all and sundry. “Man’s days are full of trouble. But He delivers him from them all. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning.” That should be the mind-set of a child of God.

Say:“God is for me. He has good plans for me. My enemies will not triumph over me. The will of God will prevail. Angels are on assignment on my behalf. All things are working together for my good. My light affliction, which is just for a moment, is working for me, an exceeding weight of eternal glory. It is partners for my progress and upward mobility.”

Joseph’s opposition caused him to dream some more. So when you’re opposed, say,” I will keep on dreaming big dreams.” Joseph’s pit experience and being sold into slavery were ladders for the fulfilment of God’s purpose for his life. His brothers meant it for evil but God meant it for good, to save many in the Day of Severe Famine in Egypt. He saw the end from the beginning and allowed the injustice to prepare Joseph for his ministry He had given a promise to Abraham and His word will not fall to the ground:

13 And He said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years; 14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance. Gen15:13-14

Because, Jacob, had either forgotten this promised or prophetic word, or was not told, he panicked and despaired when Simeon was held in Egypt and they wanted to take Benjamin.

36 And Jacob their father said unto them, Me have ye bereaved of my children: Joseph is not, and Simeon is not, and ye will take Benjamin away: all these things are against me. Gen42:36

You and I will also come to this place in life at various times-whether in relation to our relationships, finance, ministry, health, business etc where, looking at it naturally, it will seem as if everything is against you. This is when you need to go back to the promises of God that are ‘yes and amen in Christ Jesus.’ If it was a prophecy, take it back to God and stand your ground. Say, “Lord, You said…” and you are not a man that you should lie. If you do not have a specific word ( rhema), at least know the will of God as revealed in His word.

( Logos)

The word of God is the will of God and the will of God is the word of God. Pray in the spirit and let Him quicken His word for you. Pray with the spirit and you will be praying in line with God’s perfect will. Let the Holy Spirit unveil to you His mind for you.

9 But as it is written: ” Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” 10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. 1Cor2:9-12

Know that the enemy of your soul wants you to doubt God, so as to prevent you from obtaining the promise. Doubts and unbelief can short-change us. We have our path to play even if God has made a promise to us. If we keep speaking doubt and defeat, we are taking sides with the devil and calling God a liar  and short-changing ourselves.

6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For He that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that He shall receive any thing of the Lord. James 1:6-7

So we can be our own worst enemies when we agree with negatives and seeds of doubt that satan sows in our minds. It is a bait of satan and once you bite the bait you’re ensnared, caught and imprisoned and quarantined by the words of your mouth.

Why not start speaking God’s word of His grace that is able to establish you and build you up and give you an inheritance amongst those who are sanctified. Start speaking the word of life that will bring life back to your life, your vision, dreams and God-given purpose.

Regardless of the obstacles, say to yourself:

“I know whom I serve. I know whom I have believed. It shall be to me as He said unto me.” Remember,

6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for He that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Heb 11:6

In Numbers 13 the ten spies who brought a negative report to the camp courted God’s displeasure and anger. But Joshua and Caleb were of a different spirit. They held on to the mind of God regardless of the giants they saw. Others focused on the giants (obstacles, difficulties, walls, challenges). They minimised the goodness of God and the little mercies they saw-giant grapes that were so huge that it required two people to carry. They maximised the problems, obstacles, difficulties and barriers. They saw themselves as grasshoppers in their eyes and in the eyes of the giants. They had faith to imagine the -worst and even seeing through the eyes of the giants but could not see through the eyes of God:

“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.” 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.” 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.” Numbers 13:27-33

On the contrary Caleb and Joshua said “they are our bread.” We are able. If the Lord delights in us, He will bring us into the land and give it to us the land. Only do not rebel, they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.Number 14:6-9

This is how God wants you to speak when you see those “giants in your land, in your mind’s eye”, say, “I am able to drive them out. Through my God I can do valiantly. All things are working together for my good. If God be for me, who can be against me? I am more than a conqueror. God is working in me, both to will and to do according to His good pleasure. He will fight for me and will hold my peace. All things are working together for my good. Every place that the soles of my feet shall tread belongs to me. I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living-in my life time. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper. I am an overcomer and have overcome them. If God did not withhold Jesus, but delivered Him to die for me, how will He not, even with Him, freely give me all things?”

The kingdom of God suffers violence, but the violent take it by force. Stand your ground. Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the whole armour of God as to stand in the evil day. There are more with you than are against you. Speak in agreement, in consonance, in sync with God and angels will be galvanised into action on your behalf.

Guard your heart diligently. For out of it are the forces of life. Cast down every imagination that is contrary to the revealed will of God. Don’t work against yourself with your mouth. Renew your mind with the word. Spend more time in the word and in prayer. Avoid deep, intimate association with people who do not have the mind of Christ.

33 Be not deceived: evil communications corrupt good manners. 1Cor15:33

Birds of the same feathers flock together. Iron sharpens iron. Fellowship with people who will give you godly counsel –not worldly ungodly counsel.

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. Ps1:1

Do not say “everything is working against me,” like Jacob. That is a lie from the pit of hell. Do not say “I am a grasshopper.” Grasshoppers don’t eat grapes. Do not say, like Naomi, “Call me Marah.” 20 And she said unto them, Call me not Naomi, call me Mara: for the Almighty hath dealt very bitterly with me. Ruth1:20

Yes, calamity struck. She had misfortunes but that was not the end of the story. But for the faith of Ruth and the mercies of God her words and attitude would have stopped the great blessing of God and mind-blowing turning of the table. We know how the story ended. The foreigner was grafted into the lineage of Christ and Ruth was married to a billionaire of her time and one of the finest gentlemen-Boaz.

So think God’s thoughts towards you. Where do you find His thoughts? You find His thoughts in His word. That goes without saying. And unless you know His word, you will not know His thoughts.

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Jer29:11

8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. 9 For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. Isa55:11

So, my friend, cast down every imagination and thought contrary to God’s word. Say to yourself, “If God said it, I believe it and that settles it, regardless of how I feel or what people say. As for me -my spirit, soul and body, I will take sides with God. God has a good plan for me. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For God is with me and in me and for me. He will enable me leap over walls, run through troops, and maul any Goliath or giants. If I go through the fire, like Daniel’s friends, it will only refine me to grow and glow brighter and become better and not bitter. God will not leave me in the fire,  or mire. He is working in me to work through me. And when He has finished, I will come forth like gold to give glory to His name wherever I go. My path is shining ever brighter to the full light of day. I am going from glory to glory and from faith to faith and from strength to strength.

Keep Pressing On ( by Fenny West)

Fenny’s Saying

suffering

“When life deals you a BIG BLOW, peels you and brings unexpected suffering, and you fall down, just pick yourself up and keep going.”

 

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. Ro8:28

 

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

 

Nothing To Fear(1) ( by Fenny West)

Nothing To Fear

Nothing To Fear
Wherever you are
Wherever you go
Defeated is the foe.

Jesus Defeated him
And Paralysed him
Made a public spectacle of him
Triumphed over him

 

Proverbs 28:
1 The wicked flee when no one pursues, But the righteous are bold as a lion. Prov 28:1

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Col 2:15

 For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
1 John 3:8

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

I Can Do Beyond Your Dreams ( Fenny West)

More than you can ask or think or dream of I can do, through My power at work in you
Advantage is yours because of my Spirit in you.
You need to believe this and run with it

Eph3:20, John16:7, Mark11:23)

Many dreams die because of neglect
Arise and shine to the glory of God
You have all that it takes to win

(Phil 4:13,Matt.19:26, Mark11:23, Isa60:1-2,23, Hab2:2)

Move with the flow of the Holy Spirit
All over the world the Holy Spirit is moving
You cannot be defeated when you let Him

(Acts1:8, John16:7,13, Acts10:38, Luke4:18)
