Moving From Milk To Meat ( by Fenny West)

Moving From Milk To Meat

Moving From Milk To Meat
Is the perfect will of God.
From learners to teachers
Is God’s desire and passion.

So lay a good foundation
And begin to build an edifice
Of mammoth proportion
One of a lasting legacy.

Study, show yourself approved.
Make your calling, election sure.
Make the most of each moment.
Dig deep, Meditate and review.

Climb the ladder from rung to rung
Making inroads, making progress
Going from glory to glory
And going from strength to strength.

{Heb 5:12} For when
for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one
teach you again which [be] the first principles of the oracles
of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not
of strong meat. {5:13} For every one that useth milk [is]
unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
{5:14} But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full
age, [even] those who by reason of use have their senses
exercised to discern both good and evil.
Chapter 6
{6:1} Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of
Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the
foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith
toward God, {6:2} Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of
laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment. {6

18 but grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.2 Pet3:18

11 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,
12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,
13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;
14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —
16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love. Eph4:11-16

Good Morning (2) (by Fenny West)

Good Morning (2)

Get up early each Morning
Next, prayer and get a “Word Bath”
To keep your mind from straying
Saturate your whole being from your heart.

Tune in to the frequency of the Spirit
There you will hear the Voice of God
Listen, not with your ears but with your spirit
And God will speak to you from His Word.

For breakfast, go for divine dainties
From the sumptuous sup supplied
Water it down with Living Waters
Top it up with the milk of the Word
Before you take the meat of the Word.

For lunch, go for the Rhema-prophetic Word
Learn to wages a good warfare with it
Fight the Good Fight of Faith, fearless
Fainting not in the Day of Adversity
Because your strength in Him is not small.

For dinner, meditate on a morsel of the Word
Chew it repeatedly till it’s ground to pieces
Swallow it whole, hook, line and sinker.
Pray a prayer of Thanksgiving to God who gives His beloved sleep.

 

1      Give ear to my words, O LORD, Consider my meditation.

2      Give heed to the voice of my cry, My King and my God, For to You I will pray.

3      My voice You shall hear in the morning, O LORD; In the morning I will direct it to You, And I will look up.

Ps5:1-3

1      O God, You are my God; Early will I seek You; My soul thirsts for You; My flesh longs for You In a dry and thirsty land Where there is no water.

2      So I have looked for You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory.

3      Because Your lovingkindness is better than life, My lips shall praise You.Ps63:1-3

7      My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.

8      Awake, my glory! Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn.

9      I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations.

10   For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens, And Your truth unto the clouds.

11   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth.

Ps57:7-11

35           Now in the morning, having risen a long while before daylight, He went out and departed to a solitary place; and there He prayed.

Mark1:35

The Parallel and Paradox … ( by Fenny West)

The Parallel and Paradox of the Wooden Art

https://youtu.be/F7qXKab5S5g

How incredible insightful and instructive!

The Wood artist sees what we do not see
And painstakingly uses his tool to chip off, cut out, carve out, garnish until the beautiful masterpiece emerges out of the wood to our amazement, admiration and wonder.
This is exactly what God sees in you and I. We may look useless on the outside but there is masterpiece waiting to find expression in us.
And as we yield to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God does His miracle of transformation by chipping off, carving out, garnishing, polishing until the masterpiece which was there, emerges for all to see, admire and glorify God for.
Today, yield to the Holy Spirit to work in you as to work through you. See yourself as a masterpiece awaiting manifestation. Yes, often the pruning can be painful, but see the joy ahead, like Jesus and submit yourself to the Master Crafts-Man Who knows your end from the beginning.

: For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of the sons of God.  Ro8:19
For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph2:10
John15:1} I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman. {15:2} Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every [branch] that beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit. {15:3} John15:1-3

1John{3:1} Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. {3:2} Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

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

Go for Gold

Go for Gold

Saint of God.

God’s with you

And for you

And in you.

You’ve got what it takes.

Run with grace.

Run to finish

And finish well.

Run with passion.

Run with focus.

You’ve got what it takes.

Go for gold.

Refuse distraction.

Embrace distinction.

Delight in discipline

And you will win.

You’ve got what it takes.

Go for gold.

Give it your all

Do it like Paul

Refuse to be stalled.

Every Goliath maul.

You’ve got what it takes.

Dare to dream.

Dare dreaming big.

Go after that lion.

Rescue the sheep.

Go after that bear.

Rescue the sheep.

You’ve got what it takes.

Like Goliath of Gath

He has a glass jaw

He’s a defeated foe.

Tread down the foe.

Cut off his head

Even with his sword.

This foe is a phoney foe.

Hit him below the belt.

You’ve got what it takes.

Put on the whole armour of God.

Stand strong in the Lord

and in His mighty power.

Don the helmet of salvation

And the breastplate of righteousness.

Take the belt of truth,

expose all the lies of the enemy.

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.

PUSH-Pray Until Something Happens.  

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

Go For Good Growth ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

Go  for Good Growth

tree of songs spring chrry blossom4 spring chrry blossom3 bounties and Blessings anointing attracts attack beachside palm tree fresh and flourishing

 

“These have no root.” Luke 8:13

My soul, examine thyself this morning by the light of this text. Thou hast received the word with joy; thy feelings have been stirred and a lively impression has been made; but, remember, that to receive the word in the ear is one thing, and to receive Jesus into thy very soul is quite another; superficial feeling is often joined to inward hardness of heart, and a lively impression of the word is not always a lasting one. In the parable, the seed in one case fell upon ground having a rocky bottom, covered over with a thin layer of earth; when the seed began to take root, its downward growth was hindered by the hard stone and therefore it spent its strength in pushing its green shoot aloft as high as it could, but having no inward moisture derived from root nourishment, it withered away. Is this my case? Have I been making a fair show in the flesh without having a corresponding inner life? Good growth takes place upwards and downwards at the same time. Am I rooted in sincere fidelity and love to Jesus? If my heart remains unsoftened and unfertilized by grace, the good seed may germinate for a season, but it must ultimately wither, for it cannot flourish on a rocky, unbroken, unsanctified heart. Let me dread a godliness as rapid in growth and as wanting in endurance as Jonah’s gourd; let me count the cost of being a follower of Jesus, above all let me feel the energy of his Holy Spirit, and then I shall possess an abiding and enduring seed in my soul. If my mind remains as obdurate as it was by nature, the sun of trial will scorch, and my hard heart will help to cast the heat the more terribly upon the ill-covered seed, and my religion will soon die, and my despair will be terrible; therefore, O heavenly Sower, plough me first, and then cast the truth into me, and let me yield thee a bounteous harvest.

On the Road to Good Success you will find Goliath, lions and bears. As you embark on this road, Pharaoh will pursue you and frighten you. You must keep your eyes on Jesus and refuse any distraction. and follow the prescription God has given: Anchor your soul on His word, meditate on it day and night, eat it, digest it, speak it, believe it, do it- all of it. Then you will make you way prosperous and then you will have Good Success. Know the difference between godly success and worldly success and choose Good Success- not goods success.

 

 

The Word Works (by Fenny West)

The Word Works

 bounties and Blessings hs 8 olive oil.3jpg hs 3 hs 6 marketing ode don't quit17 2sunrise2 (2) - Copy

 The word Works

When you stand on it

When you pray it

And pray with it

When you pop it as pill

When you rub it in like balm.

 

The word heals

Because it is spirit and life

Because it is God-breathed

Because it is powerful

And dynamic, razor-sharp

Living, seasoned and it’s God’s mind.

 

The word works

When you refuse to relent

When you hold on to it

Like a bulldog that has found a bone.

The word is medicine for health;

The word is wisdom in business;

The word is blue print for prosperity;

The word is for soundness of mind;

The word works for peace profound;

The word works for divine direction;

The word is for creativity

The word is for healthy relationships

The word is for finding purpose

Facing and fulfilling purpose.

The word works always and everywhere;

on the mountain in the valley.

 

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.Heb4:12

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.John6:63

“It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’

Matt4:4

7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. John15:7

32.”So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified Act20:32

 

16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Col3:16

12     I have not departed from the commandment of His lips;

      I have treasured the words of His mouth

              More than my necessary food. Job23:12

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.

 Prov4:20-22

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.

dreams  must frighten you else its not big enough birth of Jesus10 birth of Jesus9 birth of Jesus8 faith can move mts faith works by love songwritinging 3 inspirational writer songwritinging 4 why worry  hope love never fails 2

Going by Faith and Love

You can be a major player

On the mission field

Just with your heart-felt prayers.

Your resources can go

Where your feet cannot go.

 

You can sing many songs

By connecting with the singer

By just being a partner

Assisting in whatever way you can.

God will reward you greatly.

 

You can write many books

Even without lifting a pen

You can preach many sermons

Without being a pastor or a teacher

An evangelist, prophet or apostle.

By just being a rope-holder, armour-bearer.

 

We need each other; we’re a unit.

We belong to the body of Christ.

Like the black and white keys on a keyboard.

9          For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, you are God’s building. 1Cor3:9

4     There are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.5 There are differences of ministries, but the same Lord.6 And there are diversities of activities, but it is the same God who works all in all.7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all:8 for to one is given the word of wisdom through the Spirit, to another the word of knowledge through the same Spirit,9 to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healings by the same Spirit,10 to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another discerning of spirits, to another different kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues.11 But one and the same Spirit works all these things, distributing to each one individually as He wills.

12   For as the body is one and has many members, but all the members of that one body, being many, are one body, so also is Christ.13 For by one Spirit we were all baptized into one body — whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free — and have all been made to drink into one Spirit.14 For in fact the body is not one member but many.

15   If the foot should say, “Because I am not a hand, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body?16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not an eye, I am not of the body,” is it therefore not of the body?17 If the whole body were an eye, where would be the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where would be the smelling?18 But now God has set the members, each one of them, in the body just as He pleased.19 And if they were all one member, where would the body be?

20        But now indeed there are many members, yet one body.21 And the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you”; nor again the head to the feet, “I have no need of you.”22 No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.23 And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor; and our unpresentable parts have greater modesty 1Cor12:4-23

11   And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers,12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,13 till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;14 that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting,15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head — Christ —16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.

Eph4:11-16

15 Now you Philippians know also that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church shared with me concerning giving and receiving but you only.16 For even in Thessalonica you sent aid once and again for my necessities.17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that abounds to your account.18 Indeed I have all and abound. I am full, having received from Epaphroditus the things sent from you, a sweet-smelling aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well pleasing to God.19 And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.20 Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. Phil4:15-20

41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.42 And whoever gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold water in the name of a disciple, assuredly, I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.”

Matt10:41-42
