There is More to Me ( by Fenny West)

There is more to me

Than meets the eye.

What man can see

Is not what I am.

What man can see

Is not what I have;

What man can see

Is not where I am at.

I am born of God

Born of the Spirit

Born of the Word

I hail from above

I am an associate of the God-kind.

I have the divine nature.

I am the temple of God.

My feet are extensions of the feet of God.

My hands are the extensions of the Hands of God.

My voice is the extension of the voice of God.

Where I go, He goes.

I manifest His presence.

I manifest His glory.

I manifest His beauty.

I manifest His goodness.

I manifest His grace.

Why?

Creation is waiting eagerly

For the manifestation of the sons of God.

Why?

The Word says “As He is, so we are in this world.”

 

10   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

3     According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:

4     Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2Pet1:3-4

17   But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.

19   What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

1Cor6 :17,19,

16            And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

2Cor6:19

Guess what, this also applies to you, and more so if you are born again.

 

Now personalize this and mean it.

There is more to me 

Than meets the eye.

What man can see

Is not what I am.

What man can see 

Is not what I have;

What man can see

Is not where I am at.

I am born of God

Born of the Spirit

Born of the Word

I hail from above

I am an associate of the God-kind.

I have the divine nature.

I am the temple of God.

My feet are extensions of the feet of God. 

My hands are the extensions of the Hands of God.

My voice is the extension of the voice of God.

Where I go, He goes.

I manifest His presence.

I manifest His glory.

I manifest His beauty.

I manifest His goodness.

I manifest His grace. 

Why?

Creation is waiting eagerly

For the manifestation of the sons of God.

Why?

The Word says “As He is, so we are in this world.”

My Friend, Let out the giant in you

 CG5

My Friend, Let out the giant in you

He may now be encased in a jar of clay

But he was ordained to come out of you

Let him come out to bless the world today.

 herald

Let not your natural impulses muscle him

Let yourself go; die to yourself and you will see

You will see the wonder that will come from him

Let yourself go and you will experience the Almighty

 

You will begin to do the supernatural

You will begin to do the incredible

You will begin to go beyond the temporal

And that which was impossible will be possible.

 

God will give you the boldness unimaginable

You will break down barriers and leap over walls

You will change things hitherto seeming unchangeable

And wherever you had fallen before, you will stand tall.

 Sleeping giant Awake !

Cast Down but Unconquered

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

8     We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;

9     persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed —

10   always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.

2Cor4

3     as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

4     by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

2Pet1:3-4

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.

God’s Everlasting Love

31   What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

32   He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?Rom8:28,31,32,37-39

4     You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world.1John4:4

4     For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world — our faith.1John5:4

Think and Talk God’s Thoughts

Think and Talk God’s Thoughts

 

Think and Talk God’s Thoughts

To take you to the top

Foreordained for you

Before the world began

Before you were conceived.

 

God blessed you with

Every spiritual blessing

In heavenly places.

He chose you

as His treasured possession;

As His trophy and inheritance.

He loves you with an everlasting love.

As high as the heavens are above the earth,

So great is His love towards you.

And as far as the East is from the West

So far has He removed your transgression from You.

He forgave you of all your sins,

He healed you of all you diseases,

Redeemed your life from destruction,

Crowned you with love and compassion,

Satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed as the eagle’s.

He daily loads you with benefits to enjoy.

No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.

Greater is He that in you than he that is in this world.

Because you are in Christ,

 the old has gone and the New has come.

Your life is hidden in Christ in God.

God is your light and your salvation

Of whom shall you fear?

He has not given you a spirit of fear

 but that of Love power and sound mind.

God is the strength of your life.

He has called you to be the head and not the tail.

As you obey Him fully,

whatever you lay your hands to do

 will prosper to the glory of God.

When you go through the river

You will not drown.

When you go through the fire,

the flame will not kindle upon you.

Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego,

you will come out shining like gold

and radiating the glory of the Lord.

When the world throws you into the lion’s den,

God will send His angel to protect you.

Like the three Hebrew children,

Your opposition will bring promotion.

Your rejection will bring your celebration.

You will not go under for going over.

The favour of God will be upon you

Like Nehemiah and Joseph.

Your vision shall be accomplished

Regardless of the opposition

And the tribulation that you go through.

You may laugh last but you will laugh best.

If God is for you

No one can be against you.

Neither death nor life

Nor principalities nor powers

Nor height nor depth

Nor things present nor things to come

Nor any other created thing shall

Be able to separate you

From the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.

Nay in all these things

You are more than a conqueror.

Thanks be to God who always causes you to triumph.

God is for you, with you and in you.

Your light afflictions are working for you

An exceeding weight of eternal glory.

You may be hard-pressed

but you will not be crushed.

You may the perplexed but

you need not be in despair.

You may be persecuted

But your are not abandoned;

Knocked down but not knocked out.

God will fight for you and your will hold your peace.

Because the battle is not yours but His.

You are the redeemed of the Lord;

Redeemed from the curse of the Law.

You are the righteousness in Christ Jesus.

Jesus has been made onto you:

  wisdom, redemption,

sanctification and righteousness.

God has given you beauty for ashes,

 the oil of joy  in place of mourning

the garment of praise

in place of the spirit of heaviness

that you may be a tree of righteousness

the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.

If you are barren, sing, O barren.

Enlarge the place of your dwelling

stretch out, spare not.

Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.

For more shall be the children

of the desolate than the married wife.

Have you dug wells that gave been blocked again and again?

Keep digging and the Lord will make room for you, like Isaac.

Has your dream brought contention and rejection and opposition?

Dream again like Joseph.

Your dream which came from the Lord shall come true.

They may forcibly take your coat or steal your coat

But they cannot steal your anointing.

Let them make you a scapegoat.

It will only assuage your anointing.

God will make your feet like the hind’s,

in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

 

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.

12      Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

13      And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.Jer29:11-13

 

 

Watch what you say about yourself. Words are powerful. Speak God’s words and think God’s thoughts concerning you. Agreed with God despite what you see or feel. You need to renew your mind before you can start thinking God’s though and this takings discipline, dedication, devotion, dwelling in the word, meditating on it day and night.

 

It does not happen overnight but you must invest your time and effort before it can pay off.

 

The Israelites who focused on what they saw and spoke fear and unbelief died because of what they spoke which was contrary to what the mind of God for them.  Only Joshua and Caleb took sides with God and they were the only ones amongst the adults who survived and entered the Promised Land.

2     And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.Rom12:2

 

7     For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. ” Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.Prov:23:7

8     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

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.Prov.18:21

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.

24   Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.Prov.4:21-24

14   Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.Ps19:14

 

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

Proverbs 6

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

Proverbs 6:2

3     Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.Ps141:3

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.

Ephe4:29

37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Matt12:37

 

27   Then they told him, and said: “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.”Num13:27-33

36   Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land,

37   those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the LORD.

38   But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive, of the men who went to spy out the land. Num14:36-38
