Despise Not the “Little Cloud” ( by Fenny West)

Despise Not the “Little Cloud,”

Like the hands of a man. 

Because it is the womb, 

The harbinger of a mighty rain. 

Elijah’s servant saw such a cloud 

But his master saw beyond it. 

 

Despise not little beginning 

Because it will trigger great blessing. 

In everything give thanks. 

Regardless of the challenge have faith. 

Expect great things, attempt great things. 

And God will surpass your expectations.

 

Your beginning may be small 

But your end shall be great. 

Your beginning may be a trickle 

But your end shall be an avalanche. 

Your beginning may be insignificant 

But your end shall be ginormous. 

 

 “There is a cloud, as small as a man’s hand, rising out of the sea!”1Ki18:44

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.”

Word of Faith{(e) by Fenny West}

The Word of faith

Is medicine without

side effects.

It can never lead to overdose.

It never kills but cures

all diseases-

including the sin-sickness.

 

 8 But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):Rom10:8

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. Prov4:21-22

Watch What You Watch (by Fenny West)

 

Watch What You Watch. 

It plants a seed in you. 

And this is good or bad;

And will germinate in you. 

 

The seed will turn a tree 🎄 

That tree will bear some fruits for you

To eat, digest, nourished or malnourished. 

So choose and watch what’s good for you. 

 

Watch what you choose to watch. 

Choices carry consequences, 

And these may be  good or bad. 

Decisions determine destiny 

Some mad, some sad, others glad. 

 

Just as you look in the mirror of life 

And you’re changed from glory to glory

Strength to strength, faith to faith, 

So when you look in the “movies of the world” 

Via TV, Internet, videos, or books, 

You’re changed for the better 

Or for worse- from gory to gory-bad to worse

3 I will set nothing wicked before my eyes; I hate the work of those who fall away; It shall not cling to me. Ps101:3

Words Woo or Wound ( by Fenny West)

Words Woo or Wound

 War or Warm and Wow
With your words you can give life
And with your words you can take life
With your words you can advance
And with your words you can cause a hindrance

With your words you can create, chart
With your words you can negate, char

With your words you can upgrade or degrade

With your words you can direct, redirect or misdirect or correct
With your words you can be established

With your words you can stabilise or destabilise
And with your words you can be destroyed

With your words you can propel

With your words you can repel
With your words you can impair
With your words you can inform
With your words you can misinform
With words you can start a war
And with words you can make peace
With your words you can endear
With your words you can harm, damn, tear
With your words you can disintegrate,
With your words you can stimulate
With your words  you can break a heart
With your words you can bind a broken heart.
With your words you can build an empire
With your words you can destroy an empire.
With words you can build relationships
And with words you can destroy relationships
With your words you can inspire
With your words you can cause despair
With words you can set ablaze for good
Or set ablaze for evil, separate, cause hate

Life and death are in the power of your words
Choose to speak the right words that will make, not mar
Choose words that will give life to that which is good, not life to evil.

When angry, be wise. Choose to be dumb.
Else poison will ooze out of your mouth and maim or kill
What was built over 10 years can be destroyed in 10 seconds.
He who has no control over his lips is like a city without walls.
Keep corruption and profanity out of your lips.

 

 

Counter any wrong thing people say about you. No enchantment or divination against you shall prosper. No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. Silence every lying tongue that is contrary to the revealed will of God.
There is therefore now, no more Condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. You have passed from death to life. CHRIST IS YOUR LIFE. CHRIST is a place and in that place, –in His presence- is life forever. In His presence there is no sickness or disease. In His presence is fullness of joy and life forever.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They will bring forth fruit even in their old age. They will be fat and Flourishing, (fresh and green), proclaiming: “The Lord is upright. There is no unrighteousness in Him. Their faith is continually made effective because they acknowledge the good things in them. They know who they are in Christ, what they have in Christ and whose they are in Christ. Christ in them is their hope of glory. They decree a thing and it stands. They lay up gold like dust. All things are theirs. They are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ. As He is, so they are. Principalities and powers are under their feet. 

Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. New Living Translation Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from …

24   Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you. Prov4:24KJV

12   Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good?

13   Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit.

Ps34:12-13
Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way: “The tongue has the power of life and death.” The stakes are high. Your words can either speak life, or your words can speak death. Our tongues can build others up, or they can tear them down.

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

 Prov18:21

 

2      For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

3      Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body.

4      Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.

5      Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!

6      And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

7      For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.

8      But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

9      With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.

10   Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

11   Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? James3:2-11

 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. … but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.
James3:

Train your tongue to say what God said
Train your tongue to take sides with God
When you do, your life will go from glory to glory, and from strength to strength.

5      Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

6              So we may boldly say: ” The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

You will have what you say:

23   For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

24   Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Jabez’s mother said the wrong thing in pain, anguish and depression and she, though dead, affected, constrained, contained, strangulated and hindered Jabez wherever he went until he realised it and broke the curse with what he said in prayer:

9      Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”

10   And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

1Chro4:9-10

He was like a time-bomb wherever he went. Disaster followed him here and there. People avoided him for this reason. His name was a pain and caused pain – not to him but to anyone that dared associate with him.  One day he could take it no longer and broke the curse with his prayer. You can do the same.

Hannah broke the curse of barrenness with her prayers. Though words were hardly heard, we know what she prayed for and how she praised when the answer came:

15   But Hannah answered and said, “No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

16   Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now.”

17   Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”

18   And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.

1Sam1:15-18

1 Samuel 2: Hannah’s Prayer

1      And Hannah prayed and said: ” My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.

2      ” No one is holy like the LORD, For there is none besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.

3      ” Talk no more so very proudly; Let no arrogance come from your mouth, For the LORD is the God of knowledge; And by Him actions are weighed.

4      ” The bows of the mighty men are broken, And those who stumbled are girded with strength.

5      Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, And the hungry have ceased to hunger. Even the barren has borne seven, And she who has many children has become feeble.

6      ” The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up.

7      The LORD makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and lifts up.

8      He raises the poor from the dust And lifts the beggar from the ash heap, To set them among princes And make them inherit the throne of glory. ” For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, And He has set the world upon them.

9      He will guard the feet of His saints, But the wicked shall be silent in darkness. ” For by strength no man shall prevail.

10           The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken in pieces; From heaven He will thunder against them. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth. ” He will give strength to His king, And exalt the horn of His anointed.

Celebrate What Is Good ( by Fenny West)

Celebrate What Is Good

Celebrate What is Good

Focus not on the bad

What you celebrate comes to you.

What you focus on, you become.

Look for the good in others

Provoke them to do better

Be a good example to others

Be a good role model

Berate not others who are doing better than you.

Focus on yourself. You are not in competition with them.

Always work on yourself and work on being better than yesterday.

Aspire to go from glory to glory and from strength to strength.

Believe that All Things are possible to you.

Believe that if God is for you, no one can be against you.

Believe that you have the divine nature and all things are yours.

Believe that no weapon fashioned against you  shall prosper.

Have positive role models that inspire to aim higher; people you and whom you can learn from.

But do not copy them. Be yourself. Know that you are unique, with a unique purpose, assignment and dream. Know that you have everything you need to succeed in life.

See yourself as an ambassador of God- here to give Him glory, represent Him in the best possible light and He has your back in all you do and wherever you go.

Have a healthy positive image of yourself. Do not undermine what God esteems.

Celebrate yourself. Thank God for all the abilities He has put in you. Develop them to the best of your ability and use them to serve God and humanity.

You are a masterpiece, fearfully and wonderfully made. You were made to add value to your generation. Seek for opportunities to serve and make a difference. Think more of others than yourself.

Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things. Phil4:8

We have the mind of Christ.

Renew your mind daily with the word of God. Think like He thinks. Speak as He speaks. Rom8:2

Know that although you are in this world, you do not belong to the world. Heaven is your home if your are born again. You were born to reign with Christ. So impact your world. John17:

You are the light of the world. So shine wherever you are and wherever you go. Let your light so shine that men will see your good works and glorify your father in heaven. Distinguish yourself and excel like Daniel in Babylon. Be excellent like Joseph in a foreign land. Be productive, professional, proficient and prolific like Paul, who disciplined himself so well that he gave a mammoth dividend for the gifting of God in his life, wring 13 best sellers, built many Churches, raised many leaders and forgot his past failures and achievements and pressed on for the mark of the of prize of his high-calling in Christ until fulfilled his vision with finesse.

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.2Tim4:7-8

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

You are a city on a hill that cannot be hidden. Glorify God in all your undertaking; in whatever you lay your hands to do. Be a leader in your chosen field. Shine your light so that others will see. Be a solution centre and a problem-solver. Bring light out of darkness. That is how you make a difference. Bring  illumination in dark places. Dispel  darkness with your light and life. Repay evil with good.

Know that there are angelic history assigned to watch over you and no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. You are unconquerable, indomitable and unstoppable. All things are working together for you. The boundaries have fallen for your in pleasant places and you have a goodly heritage. Believe You will keep going  from glory to glory and from strength to strength and from faith to faith.

Your pathway shall shine ever brighter to the full light of day. (Matt5:13-16, Rom12:21, Rom8:28, 2Cor:4:6, 7, Ps91:10,Ps34:10,Ps16:11)

6 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

7 ¶ But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk ( by Fenny West)

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk
Stay in the straight and narrow
Talk the walk and walk the talk.
Talk what you see in the mirror.

Just say what God has said of you.
Act as though it is true because it is.
God is not a man to deceive you.
He knows what He had made you.
He knows what He had put in you.

Give Him thanks for what He made you
Give Him praise for His infinite wisdom.
Resolve to make manifest His will
Resolve to give Him glory and honour
Because the Master made you a Masterpiece,

 His crowning glory, and Apple of His eyes.

 

 

Prov15:4

4     A wholesome tongue is a tree of life, But perverseness in it breaks the spirit.

Prov.6:2
You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth.

Prov18:21 21      Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Prov 26:18-19 18              Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death,

19   Is the man who deceives his neighbor, And says, “I was only joking!”

Matt12:37 37       For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Mark11:23 23     For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.

 Eph4:29 29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers

James3:4,5,6

3     Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body.

4     Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.

5     Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!

6     And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

All things are Mine ( Prevailing Prayer) {by Fenny West)}

All Things Are Mine

Father, I thank You, that All Things Are Mine, because You said so. All things are mine, because the earth in all its fullness belongs to You.  And I am an heir of God and a Joint-heir with Christ. All things are mine because You will not withhold anything good from those who love You. All things are mine because you daily load me with benefits to joy. All things are mine because the boundary lines have fallen in pleasant places for me and I have a goodly heritage. All things are mine because silver and gold belong to you and what is Yours is mine. All things are mine because you said, “Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. “

1Cor3:21,Rom8:17,Ps16:6,Ps84:11,Hag2:8,Ps23:3

All things are mine because I am Sufficient in Your sufficiency. All things are mine because you have given me your exceedingly great and precious promises that by these should have all that pertain to godliness and be a partaker of the divine nature through my knowledge of You. All things are mine because all things are possible to those who believe. All things are mine because you said, “Ask of me and I will give you the nations for your inheritance and the uttermost part of the earth your possession. All things ate mine because you said if I give bountifully, you will make your grace abound to me so that I having all sufficiency would abound unto every good work requiring no support or aid or charitable donation.

2Cor3:5,2Pet1:3-4, Ps2:8, 2Cor9:8:Matt19:26, Mark9:23

I thank You, Lord, that am the apple of your eyes and you care for me very much so that you love me like you love Jesus and if did not withhold Him, how will You not freely give me all things to enjoy. Thank you that you have opened your good treasure and poured out blessings upon me and I will not have room enough to contain it. The devourer has been rebuked on my behalf. Thank You that all things are mine because you said, “You shall decree a thing and it shall be established and acquaint yourself with the Lord that hood may come to you and you will lay up gold like dust. Thank you, Lord, that you said,” Ask and you will receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door shall be opened. You also said,” If you abide in me and my word abide in you, you shall ask what you will and it shall be done to you.” I believe and decree that all things are mine. I lay up gold as dust. I am blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. My God shall supply all my needs according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus. You said you will give me the treasures of darkness and hidden riches in secret places and the abundance of the seas. Thank you, Lord, that You have made me the head and not the tail. I have all wisdom on how to abound in financial and kingdom Prosperity. I know how to deal wisely in financial matters. I know where to invest and when to invest to make most of my returns.

Deut32:10,Ps17:8, John17:23, Mal3:11,Job22:24,28,Rom8:32,Matt7:7, John15:7 Isa45:3, Isa60:5, Phil4:19, Deut28:13, Eph1:8-10, 2Pet1:3

Thank You, because you have blessed me superabundantly to be a blessing You, Your Church, my family and my generation. I go from glory to glory and from strength to strength in my finances. And I am a Kingdom financier. All things are to enable me to do good wherever I go – spreading the fragrance of your knowledge, Your goodness, Your love, benevolence, power and glory. All things are mine because foreigners are coming to build my walls and they are coming with their silver and their gold. All things are my because Your favour surrounds me as a shield and this is my set time of favour on every side.

Eph1:3, Gen12:3, Isa60:10, Ps102:13, Ps5:12

All things are mine, by divine design. Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. And whatever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven. You watch over your word to perform it. The grass may wither, the flower may fade but your word abides forever. You are not a man to lie neither the son of man to repent. If you said it, you have the wherewithal to make it good.

1John4:4, 1John4:5,Matt18:18, Num23:19 2Cor2:14, Isa40:8, Jer1:8

I give you praise, glory and honour because Your mind is full of me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Walking in Wisdom ( By Fenny West)

Walking in Wisdom

Walking in Wisdom is My Currency
Because Christ is made wisdom to me. 
I walk in the light of the Word of God
Which is wisdom to me. 
I have the mind of Christ because the word of God says so. And if God said it, that settles it. My mind is renewed. I am renewed in the spirit of my Mind. I have set my mind on God. His word says, “Thou shalt keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you.” Therefore, I am wise not to lean on my own understanding. In all my ways, I acknowledge God and He directs my path. I always hear Him saying to me, “This is the way, walk in it” and that is what I do. He said, “I will instruct you, guide you and teach you in the way you should go. And so long as I am looking to Him I will not go astray. His Spirit is my Counselor, Guide, Standby, Teacher, Revealer who gives me the advantage. He gives me insider information because He knows the end from the beginning. I am therefore in safe hands. He leads me to my green pastures and to my still waters. 
I have the Spirit of wisdom and revelation through my knowledge of Him and through my knowledge of His exceedingly great and precious promises and this enables me to know those things that are freely given to me. All things are mine. And as Continually expose my spirit to His word, I am empowered to walk in faith and increase in faith to take territories and go from glory to glory and from strength to strength. 
In all circumstances, I do what Jesus would have done. I prioritize the Kingdom of God. I set my affection on things above. Because Christ is my life, my wisdom and my strength. He is my light and my salvation. I walk in love at all times because God is love and I am in God and God is in me. I always see through the eyes of God because I am dead to myself and alive unto Him. His mind and wisdom and counsel Prevails in all I do. I do not speak out of turn, but speak the wisdom of God always. I do not act in haste neither do I procrastinate. I keep in step with the Holy Spirit as I pray without Ceasing and pray according to the perfect will of God. I do not miss a bit. Even a turning that seems wrong at the time is used for my good and for my advancement and progress. 
I operate in the wisdom that is heavenly-peaceful, loving, just, true, honest, godly, of good report, admirable, virtuous, and God-glorifying. 
The wisdom I have is laced with understanding, discretion, insight and does not depend on what is seen in the natural. I see with the eyes of Faith. I see unseen realities. Because I see through the eyes of God. 

Ephesians 1:17
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”

Ephesians 1:18
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,”

Ephesians 1:19
“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”

1 Corinthians 1:30
“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption
