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

“Christ, who is our life.”
Colossians 3:4

 

Christ is my Life, not just the source of my life. He is my stay and the way.

He is my place. For, I am in Christ. I was dead in trespasses and sin, but was crucified with Him.

I died with Him, was buried with Him and was raised with Him, like Lazarus was raised; like Tabitha was raised. But I was raised to a New Beginning, a newness of life.

 

He is the substance- the woof and warp-of my spiritual life. Without Him I am nothing. He only gives life to my living and gives reason for my living. Without Him I cannot do anything worth doing and with Him I can do all things He foreordained for me to do. For, He strengthens me. I live for Him. I live to please Him and not any other. I live to reflect Him. I live as His ambassador. There is nothing good in me but that which He deposited through His Holy Spirit, Who powers me. I am lost in Him. I live by Him- the word of life. He is the Manna – the bread that came down from heaven that a man should eat and be truly satisfied. For, ‘man shall not live by bread alone but by very word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ I can never get a morsel to satisfy the hunger in my spirit except it comes from Him!

 

His is the solace of my Life- the God of all comfort. He has sent in to my soul, another Comforter, just like Him, Who daily comforts me, counsels me, corrects me, energises me, directs me, rejuvenates me, propels me, fills me, revives me, teaches me, anoints me, opens my eyes to see beyond the natural, prays through me and in me and with me; advocate and intercedes for me. It is He who works in me, both to will and to do according to His good pleasure. It is He who does exceeding abundantly through me, far above that which I can pray, think, or even dream about, according to the power that works in me.

 

He is the Author and Finisher of my faith. He gives me peace that passes all understanding and joy unspeakable and full of glory. He is my peace. H enables me to soar like an eagle in times of storms using adversities as opportunities to break glass ceilings, go to the next threshold, do that which is naturally impossible, because all things are possible with Him. H gives calm in the storms of life.

 

There is nothing worth living for but for Him. He is the object of my life. As flies the arrow to the bulls eye, so my soul flies to Him in my fellowship with Him. As the soldier fights for his captain to obtain the coveted golden crown, so my soul fights the good fight of faith, putting my body under as to obtain my crown of righteousness and crown of life that He will bestow those who win the battles of life. He is the captain of my salvation who won the war for me and made me more than a conqueror and overcomer. He daily leads me in triumphal procession.

 

He daily moulds me, fashions me to be more like Him, as I fellowship with Him, as I rise and press on for the mark of the prize of the high-calling in Him. In Him I live, move and have my being. In His life, I have life. In His will I live and thrive. He is my Exemplar in life- the Divine copy to follow. He leads the way, shows the way and is the Way. He is the Vine and I am part of the branches. I draw my nutrients from Him and from His word that is spirit and life. As I yield to Him, I will not be conformed to the pattern of this world or shaped into the mould of this world but I would be transformed, metamorphosed, by the renewing of my mind and think His thoughts and do things His way. Why? Because Christ is my life!

O what an inheritance, what a possession, what a position and what a present day reality!

 

And do you know what? This is also yours for the asking. Christ is our life and our all.

Christ is My Life

Dwelling By the Living Waters ( by Fenny West)

peace f free2

Dwelling By the Living Waters

Will bring constant supply and joy

Abiding under the shadows

Will guarantee satisfaction.

 

Lord, this is my quest, my desire

To feed from your hand, day by day

To gaze always on your beauty

To hear your soothing, lovely voice.

 

Lord, I come for your instruction

I come for your impartation

For only You can satisfy.

Only you can fill to th brim.

 

1     As the deer pants for the water brooks,

    So pants my soul for You, O God.

2     My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

    When shall I come and appear before God?

Ps42:1-2

 

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.

5     For in the time of trouble

    He shall hide me in His pavilion;

    In the secret place of His tabernacle

    He shall hide me;

    He shall set me high upon a rock.

Ps27:4-5

 

Dwelling by the living Water ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

“Isaac dwelt by the well Lahai-roi.” Genesis 25:11

Hagar had once found deliverance there and Ishmael had drank from the water so graciously revealed by the God who liveth and seeth the sons of men; but this was a merely casual visit, such as worldlings pay to the Lord in times of need, when it serves their turn. They cry to him in trouble, but forsake him in prosperity. Isaac dwelt there, and made the well of the living and all-seeing God his constant source of supply. The usual tenor of a man’s life, the dwelling of his soul, is the true test of his state. Perhaps the providential visitation experienced by Hagar struck Isaac’s mind, and led him to revere the place; its mystical name endeared it to him; his frequent musings by its brim at eventide made him familiar with the well; his meeting Rebecca there had made his spirit feel at home near the spot; but best of all, the fact that he there enjoyed fellowship with the living God, had made him select that hallowed ground for his dwelling. Let us learn to live in the presence of the living God; let us pray the Holy Spirit that this day, and every other day, we may feel, “Thou God seest me.” May the Lord Jehovah be as a well to us, delightful, comforting, unfailing, springing up unto eternal life. The bottle of the creature cracks and dries up, but the well of the Creator never fails; happy is he who dwells at the well, and so has abundant and constant supplies near at hand. The Lord has been a sure helper to others: his name is Shaddai, God All-sufficient; our hearts have often had most delightful intercourse with him; through him our soul has found her glorious Husband, the Lord Jesus; and in him this day we live, and move, and have our being; let us, then, dwell in closest fellowship with him. Glorious Lord, constrain us that we may never leave thee, but dwell by the well of the living God.
