Go and Speak ( by Fenny West)

Inspiration comes through challenges and in unusual circumstances:

Suddenly you have a “lightbulb moment”

I entered a Photo Inspiration  Challenge about a year ago with this picture below.

 

This was my inspiration: Jonah spat out of the mouth of the fish and washed ashore.

He had disobeyed God when told to go and preach at Nineveh. He boarded a ship to Tarshish and all hell broke loose on the ship. He knew he was the cause and asked to be thrown into the sea to save the lives of those on the ship. They did and there was a great calm. 

Jonah was swallowed by a big fish and there he repented and worshipped God, who had mercy on him and commanded the fish to spit him out. He was then washed ashore as we can see in the picture. Read Jonah Ch1 and 2 for the full gist.

What would your inspiration be?

 

Go After God ( by Fenny West)

Go After God.

Live in His Word.

Love His presence,

Without pretence.

 

Cherish His Voice.

Make Him your choice.

Come to Him daily.

Yield to Him truly.

 

Follow as He leads

To pastures, green field.

Lie down and feed

Until you’re filled.

 

Forage not in the mud.

Hold tight to His Word;

Let it light your path

And impart to you, strength.

 

5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
6 “And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up.
8 You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes.
9 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.  Deut, 6:5-8

4 One thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
Ps27:4

20 My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings.
21 Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart;
22 For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.
23 Keep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life. Prov4:20-23

42 But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:42

Seek Him ( by Fenny West)

Seek Him

Bamboozled By Fear
Afraid of death
Laws are rushed
Draconian laws passed
Freedom killed in cold blood
Democratic values sacrificed
On the altar of CORONA.
Overnight we sleep – walked
Into a totalitarian state
Worse than a communist state.

What we decried we now embrace
Blinded to its horror, inhumanity
Pointing to the invisible enemy
Trying to play the Blame Game.

While we slept, tares were sown
And now we’re confused and roam
Going aimless, like a rudderless ship
Trying this and that, aimless, clueless.

Will we listen to the message?
Will we learn the lessons?
Unless our eyes are opened, I doubt
Unless there’s divine intervention, I doubt.

Man has his fingers in his ears
He is looking but cannot see
He dug a hole and fell into it
He dug a grave and fell into it.

Salvation belongs to the Lord.
Deliverance belongs to the Lord.
Protection belongs to the Lord.
Provision belongs to the Lord.
Divine Direction belongs to the Lord.
Wisdom of the Kingdom is of the Lord.
Insight, foresight and hindsight is of God.
Seek Him, while He may be found.

6      Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near.

7      Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.

Isa55:6-7

Harden not your heart

Make Him NOW your choice

To have Brand New Start.

Salvation: So Simple ( by Fenny West)

Salvation: So Simple


Salvation is so simple, but many miss it, thinking it is religion. Religion is hinged on doing this or that or not doing something to recommend you to God. In other words, it is based on your righteousness. This is man’s attempt to reach God. But it’s futile. No one can save themselves. We are told that all our righteousness is as filthy rags. There is none righteous, not even one.
All we have sinned and gone astray.
All we need to do is to come as we are.
Salvation is a done deal. Jesus has completed the work when died on Calvary’s Cross and said “It is Finished.”
So to be saved, all you need to is as simple as, A, B, C!
A: Acknowledge that you cannot save yourself by your efforts.
B: Believe that only Jesus can save you-not religion, but a relationship with Him.
C: Confess with your mouth, that He died for you and was raised to give you a New Life.

By faith, invite Him to take His rightful place-in your heart. Thank Him for saving you.

Prayer of salvation

Heavenly Father
I come to You today as I am.
I believe that only Jesus can save me. I cannot save myself by what I do or do not do. I repent of my sins and invite Christ to take His rightful place on the throne of my heart.
I confess that Jesus is my Saviour and my Lord. He died to reconcile me to God. And today I receive the free gift of salvation.
Thank You for saving me. I am born again. I am a New Creation. Old things have passed away and all things have become new. My name is written in the Book of Life. Heaven is my home. I am accepted in the Beloved. Praise the Lord. Hallelujah!

Read the following scriptures :
Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23
Romans 10:9-10,13
John3:3,5,8,John6:37, John 3:16,John1:12
1John5:11-12
2 Corinthians 5:17

Now, if you prayed that prayer from your heart, please let me know, so that I can send you materials to enable to be grounded in your faith.
I would also like to be praying for you.

God bless you richly. And congratulations!

Life Is Spiritual ( by Fenny West(

 

Life Is Spiritual

Life Is Spiritual,
Beyond the Natural.
So see beyond the natural
See beyond your five senses
Be armed with the “Spirit Sense.”

Be awakened in the Spirit
Be born again as to reign
Be reconciled to God’s Spirit
Be realigned to God and His purpose.
Open the door and let Jesus come in.

This will be the best day of your life.
Life without Christ is meaningless.
Life without Christ is life in the dark.
Believe in your heart, with your mouth confess.
That Jesus is Lord of your life.
That is where true life begins.
You will pass from death to life.

Salvation is a done deal
But have to take it, own it, to make it real.
This is the Day of Salvation.
This is the Day of Realisation.
Receive today! and come out of condemnation.

Today, if you hear His voice, do not postpone.
DO NOT PROCRASTINATE.
Let Him in.
Open the present. Unwrap the present and enjoy His presence.

12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: John1:12
11 And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son.
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
13 These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.
1John5:11-13
9 that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.13 For “whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.” 
Rom10:9:10,13

We Must Preach the Gospel ( by Fenny West)

We Must Preach the Gospel


We Must Preach the Gospel;
 
Go out and tell the untold,
Tell them about the Good News,
How Jesus took our place as Lamb,
How He took our sicknesses and sin,
How He Redeemed us, set us free,
How He paid in full the price, 
How He made the ultimate sacrifice. 

We must Preach the Gospel;
Go out to the highways and byways, 
Drawn, compelled by the love of Christ,
Letting our light shine in the darkness, 
Going out as His hands and feet,
Going out as His epistle and voice, 
Going out as His megaphones and trumpets. 

We must preach the Gospel
It is for this reason we were born.
Those who have found bread, 🍞 
Must share the bread with others.
Those who have been saved, 
Must, in turn, be saviours and co-labourers.
Those who have been healed,
Must go out and heal others.
Those who have received peace,
Must go and be instruments of peace.
Those who have been reconciled, 
Must go and be Ministers of reconciliation. 

We must preach the Gospel
Because it’s the power of God for salvation,
Deliverance, transformation, promotion, 
Elevation, progression, healing, health, 
Prosperity, increase, empowerment,

 establishment, great inheritance,

settlement, endowment and fulfilment.

We must preach the Gospel, 
To show we are selfless,
To show we love Christ,
To show we are obedient, 
To show we are His disciples, 
To show we are the light of the world;
A city on a hill that cannot be hidden;
The salt of the earth that gives flavour. 

We must preach the Gospel;
Great are they that publish the Good News.
“Open your mouth and I will fill it.”
Everyone has a testimony.
Just Go and share your testimony.
Tell them what God has done for you.
You are an ambassador. 
Be not intimidated.
Be not ashamed.
Be not restrained.
Be not constrained.
Be not afraid or dismayed.
If God be for you
Who can be against you? 
Plant the seed at every opportunity. 
Water the seed at every opportunity. 
And be assured that God will give the increase. 

 

We must preach the Gospel!

All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19   Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20   Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Matt28:18-20

Philip Preached the Gospel

26   And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.

27   And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,

28   Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.

29   Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.

30   And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?

31   And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.

32   The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

33   In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.

34   And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?

35   Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

36   And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

37   And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

38   And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.

Acts8:26-38

Paul and Silas Preached the Gospel

29   Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30   And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31   And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32   And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33   And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

34   And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house.

Acts16:29-34

Peter Preached the Gospel

19   While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee.

20   Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.

21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come?

34   Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

35   But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

36   The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

37   That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

38   How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

38   How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

39   And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

40   Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

41   Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.

42   And he commanded us to preach unto the people, and to testify that it is he which was ordained of God to be the Judge of quick and dead.

43   To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

44   While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45   And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts10:19-21,34-45

When Your Heart is in My Hands ( by Fenny West)

When Your Heart is in My Hands

When Your Heart is in the right place, you will go the right place, say the right things, associate with the right people and get the right result. 

It does not mean life will be rosy or comfortable, or smooth-sailing. You will face opposition and some struggle, but they will be opportunities to see the power, sovereignty, beauty and presence of God. 

We were created by Him and for Him. He gives us rest and fulfillment. Outside Him, we will be famished, restless like a fish out of a sea or like an eagle 🦅 in a cage. He loves us with an Everlasting love, unconditional love, Agape love. 

Little wonder He said, “My Son, give me your heart.” Life is spiritual. God is a Spirit. We hail from His breath. But we wandered away from Him. Only He can satisfy, give us peace and restore us. Only the Prince of Peace can give us peace profound. 

My son, give me your heart. My daughter, give me your heart. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone will hear My voice and open the door, I will come in and dine with him and he with Me. Let me into your heart. And I will give you a New Beginning, a New Start, a New  Song. The old will go and the new will come. You will pass from death to life. You will become a New Creation. 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. And how wonderful if I am your treasure and your heart is in My hands! How glorious and victorious you will be if I am your treasure and pleasure and your heart is in My hands! How beautiful and fitting if you love me too and your heart is in My hands! YOU will be Unconquerable, indomitable, unquenchable. Besides, you will have life more abundant-the God-kind of life – Zoe. And the angels will have a party 🎉 and praise God for your bravery and noble choice. You can do it today, even right now!

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Rom10:9-10

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt6:19-21

Reach out as my Voice on earth

Reach out as My ambassador 

Reach out as My minister-able

Reach out as my epistle, My message 

the good news, My letter of love. 

Go to the high ways and byways. 

Go to the nooks and crannies. 

Go and open the eyes of the blind. 

Go and heal those who are sick. 

Go and lift out those depressed, 

Diseased, disillusioned, down and out. 

Go and lift those in the ditch of life – 

Hopeless, hapless, clueless, purposeless. 

Speak the word of life. 

Speak the Word of Grace.

Speak the dynamic Word 

That is Spirit and life. 

Speak with Boldness. 

Speak with conviction.

17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.Mark16:15-19
