Attitude of Gratitude Triggers Altitude  ( by Fenny West)

Attitude of Gratitude Triggers Altitude 

Attitude of Gratitude Triggers Altitude 
Causing you to Soar like an Eagle 🦅 
As it opens doors of opportunity for you. 
You will be unstoppable and Unconquerable. 

Being thankful will make your tank to be full, 
Causing you to see the incredible. 
Impossibilities will become possible 
And you will experience many miracles. 

Jesus wanted the unusual- a miracle-
feeding over 5000 men
With five loaves and two fishes
And there was miracle in His touch
Because of His attitude of gratitude. 
He looked up and gave thanks and instructed the disciple to start distributing what He had. They were all fed and filled and there were lots of leftovers. 
Attitude of gratitude brings altitude. 

Again Jesus was at the house of Mary and Martha. Lazarus was dead and buried and stank. Jesus wanted a miracle. He started by looking up and give thanks. Next He told them, ‘Roll away the stone! ” The He said, ” Lazarus, come forth.” And Lazarus came to life. Why? Jesus is the resurrection and the life. 

So, do you want a miracle? Do you want the spectacular? Do you want divine intervention in any area of your life? 
Are you facing a seemingly impossible situation? Just look up and give thanks and have faith in God and you will be greeted with a breakthrough, a testimony, the miraculous. 
O give thanks unto the Lord. For He is good and His mercies endure forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. For His mercies endure forever. To Him Who does great wonders, for His mercies endures forever. 
In everything give thanks… Giving thanks unto the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance in the saints. 

Hebrews 13:15
“By him, therefore, let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.”
Giving thanks unto the Father, which
hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light… 

In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus, concerning you., 1Thess.5:18

Hitherto hath the Lord helped us. ( by C. H . Spurgeon)

1 Samuel 7:12

Hitherto hath the Lord helped us.

 

The word “hitherto” seems like a hand pointing in the direction of the past. Twenty years or seventy, and yet, “hitherto the Lord hath helped!” Through poverty, through wealth, through sickness, through health, at home, abroad, on the land, on the sea, in honour, in dishonour, in perplexity, in joy, in trial, in triumph, in prayer, in temptation, “hitherto hath the Lord helped us!” We delight to look down a long avenue of trees. It is delightful to gaze from end to end of the long vista, a sort of verdant temple, with its branching pillars and its arches of leaves; even so look down the long aisles of your years, at the green boughs of mercy overhead, and the strong pillars of lovingkindness and faithfulness which bear up your joys. Are there no birds in yonder branches singing? Surely there must be many, and they all sing of mercy received “hitherto.” But the word also points forward. For when a man gets up to a certain mark and writes “hitherto,” he is not yet at the end, there is still a distance to be traversed. More trials, more joys; more temptations, more triumphs; more prayers, more answers; more toils, more strength; more fights, more victories; and then come sickness, old age, disease, death. Is it over now? No! there is more yet-awakening in Jesu’s likeness, thrones, harps, songs, psalms, white raiment, the face of Jesus, the society of saints, the glory of God, the fulness of eternity, the infinity of bliss. O be of good courage, believer, and with grateful confidence raise thy “Ebenezer,” for-

 

He who hath helped thee hitherto

Will help thee all thy journey through.

When read in heaven‘s light how glorious and marvellous a prospect will thy “hitherto” unfold to thy grateful eye

Looking Back to Give Thanks

 

looking back to give thanks3 looking back to give thanks2 looking back to give thanks1

Looking back to give thanks

For the good things you have done

Looking back to give thanks

For the victories we have won.

Not by power nor by might

But by the Spirit of the Lord

Not by power nor by might

But by the grace of the Lord.

 

 

 1    It is good to give thanks to the LORD,
    And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
2    To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
    And Your faithfulness every night,
3    On an instrument of ten strings,
    On the lute,
    And on the harp,
    With harmonious sound.
4    For You, LORD, have made me glad through Your work;
    I will triumph in the works of Your hands.Ps92:
5    O LORD, how great are Your works!
    Your thoughts are very deep.Ps92:1-3

1    Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
    For His mercy endures forever.
2    Let the redeemed of the LORD say so,
    Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,
3    And gathered out of the lands,
    From the east and from the west,
    From the north and from the south. Ps107:1-3

1    Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
        For His mercy endures forever.
2    Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!
        For His mercy endures forever.
3    Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!
        For His mercy endures forever:
4    To Him who alone does great wonders,
        For His mercy endures forever;
5    To Him who by wisdom made the heavens,
        For His mercy endures forever;
6    To Him who laid out the earth above the waters,
        For His mercy endures forever;
7    To Him who made great lights,
        For His mercy endures forever —
8    The sun to rule by day,
        For His mercy endures forever;
9    The moon and stars to rule by night,
        For His mercy endures forever. Ps136:1-9

 1    Make a joyful shout to the LORD, all you lands!
2    Serve the LORD with gladness;
Come before His presence with singing.
3    Know that the LORD, He is God;
It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves;
We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.
4    Enter into His gates with thanksgiving,
And into His courts with praise.
Be thankful to Him, and bless His name.
5    For the LORD is good;
His mercy is everlasting,
And His truth endures to all generations. Ps100

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Treasures of Darkness (By Fenny West)

Treasures of darkness

 gold2 gold3 faith shines in darkness faith uses adversity for advancement bounties and Blessings helper giving glory5 beautiful beyond - Copy - Copy marketing ode don't quit17

Treasures of darkness 

in jars of clay;

Exceedingly great and precious

Promises, purchased with the

Precious blood of the Lamb.

These treasures are seen as trash

By the world but seen as gold by the wise.

Guard well your heart.

 It is the Garden of God; the lamp of God;

 the storehouse of God for the goodies

 and bounties and beauties of God.

 

Prov.4:23, 2Pet.1:3-4,2Cor.4:7-9,Isa45:3

 

Prov.4:23, 2Pet.1:3-4,2Cor.4:7-9,Isa45:3

2     ‘ I will go before you And make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze And cut the bars of iron.

3     I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel.

Isa45:2-3

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 —

2Cor4:7-9

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

 

 

Speak Positively, Sing Gratefully, Shout Triumphantly

joy of the Lord free2 ps63 Olord you are my god1 spurgeon 2 CG2E

Speak it Positively, Sing of it Gratefully, Shout it Triumphantly

C.H Spurgeon

Lamentations 3:58
0 Lord, Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul.

Observe how positively the prophet speaks. He doth not say, “I hope, I trust, I sometimes think, that God hath pleaded the causes of my soul”; but he speaks of it as a matter of fact not to be disputed. “Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul.” Let us, by the aid of the gracious Comforter, shake off those doubts and fears which so much mar our peace and comfort. Be this our prayer, that we may have done with the harsh croaking voice of surmise and suspicion, and may be able to speak with the clear, melodious voice of full assurance. Notice how gratefully the prophet speaks, ascribing all the glory to God alone! You perceive there is not a word concerning himself or his own pleadings. He doth not ascribe his deliverance in any measure to any man, much less to his own merit; but it is “thou”-“O Lord, Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; Thou hast redeemed my life.” A grateful spirit should ever be cultivated by the Christian; and especially after deliverances we should prepare a song for our God. Earth should be a temple filled with the songs of grateful saints, and every day should be a censor smoking with the sweet incense of thanksgiving. How joyful Jeremiah seems to be while he records the Lord’s mercy. How triumphantly he lifts up the strain! He has been in the low dungeon, and is even now no other than the weeping prophet; and yet in the very book which is called “Lamentations,” clear as the song of Miriam when she dashed her fingers against the tabor, shrill as the note of Deborah when she met Barak with shouts of victory, we hear the voice of Jeremy going up to heaven-“Thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul; thou hast redeemed my life.” O children of God, seek after a vital experience of the Lord’s lovingkindness, and when you have it, speak positively of it; sing gratefully; shout triumphantly.

Grateful for His Promise

‘Grateful for His Promise of His Inheritance!’
Through it shall come abundant song and dance.
Grateful for His presence and His peace
Through which shall come boundless peace.

Grateful for the promise of the power of His Spirit
I shall do great exploits through His glorious visit.
He will bring divine acceleration from impartation.
He will bring promotion, creativity and innovation.

Grateful for the exceedingly great and precious promises;
By them I shall enter and possess all His promises;
By them I shall obtain cash from the bank of heaven;
Because He made me an heir and a citizen of heaven.

Praise Him in the Storm ( by Fenny West)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Praise Him in the Storm

Praise Him in the Calm

Prise Him in the Day

Praise Him in the Night

Praise Him on the mountain

Praise Him in the valley

Praise Him in the winter

Praise Him in the Summer.

Praise Him when you are sick

Praise Him when you are well

Praise Him when you are loaded

Praise Him when you are broke.

Praise Him when you have Friends

Praise Him when they are all gone.

Praise Him when you are blossoming

Abounding, prospering, booming, flowering

Praise Him when you are barren, dry, waiting.

Praise him when you are in a pit or prison like Joseph.

Praise Him at all times, no matter the weather- rain or shine.

 

 

1     I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2     My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad.

3     Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.

Ps34:1-3

1     Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.

2     Let the redeemed of the LORD say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,

Ps107:1-2

 

20   Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head; and he fell to the ground and worshiped.

21   And he said: ” Naked I came from my mother’s womb, And naked shall I return there. The LORD gave, and the LORD has taken away; Blessed be the name of the LORD.”

22   In all this Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong.

Job1:20-22

3    ” For there is hope for a tree, If it is cut down, that it will sprout again, And that its tender shoots will not cease.

Job14:7

35   Therefore do not cast away your confidence, which has great reward.

Heb10:35

3     And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance;

4     and perseverance, character; and character, hope.

5     Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.

Rom5

20   according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.

Phil1;20

37   Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us.

38   For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,

39   nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Rom8:37-39

 

21   And when he had consulted with the people, he appointed those who should sing to the LORD, and who should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army and were saying: ” Praise the LORD, For His mercy endures forever.”

22   Now when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.

2chro20:21-22

Giving Thanks is Good

Giving thanks is good

if it’s understood

It gives the glory

To the High and Holy.

It acknowledges:

‘You make the difference.’

And it makes the room

For another boom.

Giving thank lifts Him

Who holds all your dreams.

The wise will welcome

His Kingdom to come.

1. Free now

Whom the Son sets ree is free indeed. You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. This songs speaks of what Christ deed for me and can do for you if you let Him into your life. He came to set captives free.

 2. Christ is Risen ( 2)

http://christian-talk.forumotion.com/t5093-christ-is-risen?highlight=Christ+is+risen

Without the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, we ( Christians), would be the most miserable on earth.

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ underpins our belief.  Jesus is the Lamb that takes away the sin of the world; He is the Saviour of the world.  He is the Way the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through Him.

3. Keep your Dream Alive

inspirational, motivational, magnetic, energetic, charging, challenging

Do you have a dream from God that has suffered a setback or even dead? Is your purpose in life high-jacked by principalities and powers, living you reeling in limbo? If so listen to this song as you look to Jesus -the Author and finisher of your faith.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5XuqxMr2wJ4&feature=BFa&list=UL8zmMS4_IbXQ&lf=mfu_in_order

4. Something Happened

Something happened to me in Peckham, London, in 1981, the dead man came alive; the blind man began to see; the sin-sick was healed by Jesus Christ. I was born again. You too can have that experience if you come to Him with an open heart and surrender. Something happpened inside of me and it can happen to you too.

http://youtu.be/4oncvN-WkgA

 

5. Author & finisher

He who began a good work in you will also finish it, because He is the Author and finisher of your faith. He is faithful, meciful and powerful, able to keep that which is committed into His hands. He is a Friend who sticks closer than a brother.  He is dependable, reliable, and exceedingly and abundantly able.

http://youtu.be/ZoHEAv_pI0s

 

 Yes, Jesus finishes what He begins. This is an inspirational song to … Jesus finishes what He begins. This is an inspirational song to lift you from hopelessness into faith in God. It is not over until God says so. So long as you hold on to Him and trust Him, He will take you into your Promised Land regardless of the circumstances. In fact He will use adversity to propel you and push you into His plans and purposes and His prepared place for you. If He says ‘Yes!’ Who can say ‘No’?

6. My God, My God

http://youtu.be/cdhdbeLesgw

He came to set the captives free and whom the Son sets free is free indeed. I was in chains, in a slave market of sin and He came to set me free from Satan’s cage. I was in a wreckage, suffered damages but He came to rescue me and restore me. And what He has done for me, He can do for you. I behind, in the grind, always looking behind but He came to change all that. That is the power of the Gospel. And what He has done for me He can do for you. That is what the song is all about. Come with me into the Land of ‘Free Now to Serve the Lord.’

 

 

7. He’s Alive

An Easter song. Christ has risen.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8sT8EOjr1Kk&feature=related

8. Christ is Alive

An echo of the resurrection. Jesus Christ died to save sinners, which we all are. But the story did not end there. He rose again from the dead and ascended to the Father. That is why all those who put their trust in Him can be forgiven their sins and raised back to a newness of life in Christ Jesus. The old will go and the New will come. Because He is alive, we can live also. We have eternal life and heaven becomes our home.

9. Look Unto the Hills

Powerful Psalm of inspiration and warfare. Our help comes from the Lord, the Maker of Heaven and earth. He is like a doctor always on call. He is always alert, always there and our ever-present help. Others may trust in riches or princes but our trust is in the Lord- all-powerful, exceeding abundantly able to turn the table in our favour. He is the unchanging changer.

http://youtu.be/JsPV4EwZHHs

10. Worthy is the Lamb

Song of worship of our Saviour and Lamb of God Who took away our sin, made atonement for us, reconciling us to the Father.

11. Rise Up!

http://youtu.be/qGI3ZykF_yE

Vicissitudes of life do visit us; the valleyof Bacca confronts us from time to time; this is the valley of weeping, disappointment, calamity and what have you? But in Christ we can use the stumbling blocks as stepping stones to a higher ground. The valley can be a place of spring, a springboard lifting you to a higher dimension. ay the Lord cause you to rise up from your valley of Bacca and make it a place of spring. May you go from faith to faith, strength to strength and glory to glory. ALL things work together for good for those who love God and who are called according to His purposes. Rise Up!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qGI3ZykF_yE&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL

12. You Must Be Born Again

http://youtu.be/bTSV12EEKmo

Like the process of metamorphosis becoming a Christian is a transformation from a maggot into a masterpiece as the old goes and the new comes. This can only happen when we acknowledge that we are sinners in need of a Saviour- Jesus; the Lamb that takes away the sin of this world. He takes us from darkness into His marvellous light and cleanses us and gives us His robe of righteousness. That is what this song is all about. If you do not have a personal relationship with God, can I encourage you to do so without delay? This is the day of salvation. This is the acceptable time. Tomorrow might be too late.

13. He that Dwells Ps.91

This is a powerful psalm of protection for those who dwell under the shadow of the Wings of God. It is one of my favourite Psalms, especially when I am under attack.

May you find this song comforting and reassuring in your spiritual warfare.

http://youtu.be/FduzhO4vA4w

14. Bless the Lord O My Soul

This is a medley of Psalms: Psalm34 & 103 with a rousing inspirational, joyful music to put dance in your feet and praise to your lips, to the Living God, Who deserves our praise. Join me as we dance, sing and praise the Lord and bless His holy Name. Let’s do it with reckless abandon- with everything within our being! Bless the Lord, O my soul!

http://youtu.be/wzE3SA1qHoo

15. Preeminent One

This is a worship a song acknowledging the preeminence, magnificence, immanence, majesty, glory, creativity and sovereignty of the Most High.

http://youtu.be/GMJXUYE5Ofs

16. Sing a New Song (1)

Sing a New song,- a song with a cutting edge, joy unspeakable and full of glory to the Lord of Glory.

http://youtu.be/m4vTubKCLZE

17. Peace, Be Still!

This is a prophetic song to encourage, comfort, challenge and charge you in you Race of Grace. May the Lord speak to you and lift you up, if you are discouraged. May He put springs in your steps to rise up and fulfill your vision, regardless of the obstacles you face. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him from them all. Weeping may endure for the night but joy is coming in the morning. If God be for you, who can be against you?

http://youtu.be/qdd14eVHsHw

18. Come, Comforter

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Jesus, God, the Spirit, the Counselor, the Guide, Advocate, Teacher, Standby, Strengthner and Comforter. He convicts us of sin and of our need for salvation. He is s Divine person and without Him we will be powerless and useless as Christians. He is the anointing that lifts burdens and breaks yokes. He came on the Day of Pentecost and has remained here, energising the Church, giving the gifts of the Spirit and encouraging the fruit-of the spirit. This is a prayer-song, acknowledging and inviting Him to come and do what He did on the Day of Pentecost.

http://youtu.be/vPkxPrL7oCQ

19. Come to the Cross

Life begins at the cross. We all need to humble ourselves and acknowledge our need for resurrection into a New Life. When we come to the cross and repent of our sins, our new life begins. We become children of God, citizens of Heaven; the old goes and the New comes.

http://youtu.be/Sz8GnZ5tOgI

20. I Just Wanna Thank  You, Lord

An attitude of gratitude leads to altitude. We need to count our blessings name them one by one and glorify God, instead of complaining or moaning about what we don’t have. And when we thank God, He lifts us up, regardless of our circumstances. Our thanks and praise become a tonic, a fillip, to lift us to another plane, enabling us to rise on eagles wings and ride the storms of life. Try praise and thanks when every other thing fails.

http://youtu.be/TZ4unfJ-17Y

21. ***I Will Wait

The Race of Grace we run in this life is not a quick dash. It is a marathon race and you need to be resilient, tenacious, undaunted, setting your face like a flint and run with patience until you finish. Those that wait on the Lord shall renew their strength like the eagle. Waiting takes time but it pays fine.

http://youtu.be/B7VBPiLseEc

22. Amazing Grace

God’s grace is amazing, great and wonderful. Taste and see!

23. **Be Strong in the Lord

Ephe6:10-18

In our spiritual warfare, God has made provision for His children. If you are born again, you need to know these weapons and armament and use them to fight and win the good fight of faith. This song sets the six pieces of weapons in Ephesians 6:10-18 into a song. It is thrilling, inspiring, rejuvenating, comforting and empowering.

http://youtu.be/ZVPWRa0KIhg

.

24,.**Be Strong and Courageous

All life is a war, especially when you turn your back on the world and follow the pathway of righteousness and become born again. God has given us His whole armour for us to fight the good fight of faith. As we use it skilfully we win. God is also fighting for us as we humble ourselves under His mighty hand and resist the enemy. That is what this song is about.

http://youtu.be/LmTLYhrakwI

25. ****Praise the Lord (Ps150)

We were created to praise the Living God, not just in words but also in our lifestyle. This is the expression in this song. It’s Ps150 set to music. Join me and be fulfilled as we praise God together.

http://youtu.be/AEV06sKnU08

26. I Delight in Your Word (G& H)

God’s word is dynamic, energetic, powerful, beautiful, insightful, wonderful, and delightful. It is precious, worth more than gold. It brings light into darkness, joy into sadness, revelation amidst opposition and divine direction. I delight in it. In its light, I see light.

http://youtu.be/ARpysU0OGdI

27. Great & and Marvelous

This is the song of Moses, found in Revelation Chapter15. Our God is great and marvellous and so are Hi works. His is jsut and true in His ways. He is a God of integrity, faithfulness, without injustice, good and upright.

28. Sing a New Song (2)

God’s power is unlimited, breath-taking, surpassing man’s expectation, imagination; super-abundant, reviving, revealing, restoring, healing, and invigorating, to say the least. He gives a song in the night that ushers a New Day, a New Era, turns a desert into an evergreen forest, brings the dead back to life..
Plug into God’s power today and Sing a New Song!

Joyful expectation prophetic and inspirational song, faith-filed, especially for the barren in any dimension-spiritual, physical, financial, emotional, relational etc etc

http://youtu.be/kQhXwZltt40

 30. Sing a New Song Book Blast

 This Song was used to launch my book, Sing a New Song.

It was a long road to Sing a New Song; waiting takes time but it pays fine; speaks of the greatness, goodness, faithfulness and power of God to make rivers in deserts, turn winter into summer; valley of dry bones into a mighty army, to His glory and praise.

http://youtu.be/dmICaJXC2hM

31. All Things are Possible

All things are possible with God.  All things are possible to those who believe.  Regardless of how what the doctors may have said, God has the final say. It is not over until He says so. If God had promised, it shall come to pass despite the wind and the storm that rage.  Stand on God’s word. Pray it back to Him.  Refuse anything contrary to the will and word of God.  If you believe, you will see.
