Abundance of the Seas Will Come ( by Fenny West)

Abundance of the seas will come

Unrestrained by opposition

Gushing forth like a river that’s burst its banks

Undeterred by forces of darkness

Surrounded by angelic hosts

Thrusting you into your prepared place

 

 

3 I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, That you may know that I, the LORD Isa45:3

Possessing Your Possession ( by Fenny West)

Possessing Your Possession

Commences when you decree

The Word Like a king.

 

For where the word of the King

is there is power.

  1. Where the word of a king is, there is power; And who may say to him, “What are you doing?” Eccle8:4

” But on Mount Zion there shall be deliverance, And there shall be holiness; The house of Jacob shall possess their possessions. Obad1:17

Open Doors from Quarantine ( 1) ( by Fenny West)

Open Doors from Quarantine ( 1)

41   And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42   Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43   And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44   Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

45   And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt. Gen41:41-45

 

An open door awaits the child of God, who trusts in Him, depends on Him. He did it for Joseph. He can do it for you too. Just maintain your excellence, reliability integrity and purity. No matter the opposition, it will turn out to be an opportunity for your promotion and even an unprecedented open door.

Joseph had a big dream but as he innocently told his family, he ran into trouble. Whilst his father hid the matter in his heart, his brothers not only envied him but hated him and his guts (Gen 37:6-7). However he had the audacity to dream again despite their initial disgust and dismay and outrage (Gen 37 :9). The interpretations of the dreams were in no doubt: they would be subservient to him (Gen 37:8). The preferential treatment he got from his dad compounded issues. He specially tailored a coat of many colours for him as daddy’s pet. He knew it. His dad knew it. They knew it. ( Gen37:3) And so they wanted to put his light out at the earliest opportunity. They wanted that dream dead and buried.

The opportunity came when Jacob sent Joseph on errand, to go see if they were alright in the forest. When they saw him from afar they said, “Behold, the dreamer comes. Let’s kill him and see what will come of the dream.” V19

Soon they proceeded with their clandestine and wicked plan. Joseph was stripped of his coat and dumped in a dish awaiting execution. Then one of his brothers pleaded for him.” “Let’s sell him and make some money instead of killing him. V 22
Some traders emerged and the transaction was completed and Joseph was sold away as a slave. He ended up in Egypt, bought by an army officer – Potiphar. V25-28

God was with Joseph and caused him to excel and have favour with his master. He served his master so well that he left everything in his charge. He knew that Joseph was God – fearing and he was being blessed on account of Joseph’s presence. The success of Joseph was astounding. Gen 39:1-3

Meanwhile, Potiphar’s wife lusted after Joseph because of his good looks and build. She constantly pestered him to make love to her but Joseph refused, considering it a great wickedness, more so in view of his standing with his master. But she would not stop.
One day when he entered her room to do his chores, she grabbed him and tried to force him to make love to her against his will. Joseph refused her overtures to compromise his purity and integrity and ran away, leaving his coat with her. Gen 39:7-13

She screamed and wailed to attract the attention of the neighbours accusing Joseph of attempted rape. Joseph denied it but it was her word against his. His master believed her, albeit reluctantly, and Joseph was sent to prison. What a sad day it was! Talk of bad things happening to good people.

However, even in prison, Joseph displayed his excellent and exceptional character. This brought favour and an opening for him to be made an overseer of other prisoners. (Gen.39:20-23)

Do you have a dream that has been oppose or barricaded by circumstances? Have you found yourself in quarantine despite your good deeds, integrity and purity?  Have you lost your job as a result of the lock down from CORONA19 ? Or are you imprisoned at home but working from home and wondering when all this lock down would end? If so maintain your character and faith in God, wherever you have found yourself. God will give you an open door if your expect it. It could be a door to witness to friends online or from home or a door of promotion as you display excellence and loyalty to your employers even at such desperate times.

In jail Joseph cared for other inmates and that character opened the door for him to be made an overseer. He also noticed the sad countenance of other inmates and inquired what was wrong. They opened up to him-sharing their dreams which he interpreted. They were subsequently released just as he had predicted. He pleaded with one of them not to forget him when he was restored to his former role as a butler to the King. However he forgot him for two years.

Then the King dreams a dream that perplexed him and no one could interpret it. This was when the butler remembered Joseph and told the King about Joseph and how he interpreted his dream and that of his inmate and it came true.

Joseph was summoned to the palace where the king relayed his dream to him. Joseph interpreted the dream: that there would be seven years of plenty in the land and seven years of famine. However the famine would be so severe that the seven years of plenty would be forgotten. He advised the King to look for someone to administer the years of plenty so that they do not starve to death. Gen 41:29-36

The Pharaoh was so impressed that he not only pardoned Joseph, but promoted him from prisoner to Prime Minister.

“See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42   Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck.

43   And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt.

44   Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.”

45           And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt

What an opening for Joseph!

The Pharaoh gave him a chariot, his ring and a robe and Joseph was feted, honoured all through the land. Within 24 hours his life was completely transformed.  God can do the same in your life, despite your quarantine or lock down. Expect an opening, an opportunity, an open door, a supernatural favour or promotion. Remember, “All things work together for good to those who love God and who are the called according to purpose.” You have to stand on this scripture and ask the Holy Spirit that good thing that He has ordained for you during this lock down. If you seek Him about it earnestly, you will find it.

If you are a writer, expect God to open your eyes to write a best-seller even from what is happening as a result of this unprecedented lock down. If you are a songwriter, it can be a time to write a song that will go viral on all social media platforms. Expect great things from a great God.

Joseph had a dream from God and it appeared everything was working against him, but God allowed those things to bring Joseph to the place of the fulfilment of his dream, assignment and purpose.

Similarly your opposition will bring opportunity, promotion, open doors, acclaim, stupendous success that will resound for many years. And when that opportunity comes, use it to the glory of God. Give your very best. Do not forget where you came from.

Joseph despite not going to a university and studying a degree in finance and economics, excelled in his administration of the food and produce in the time of prosperity and bumper harvest. He sought the face of God who opened the door for him to give him wisdom to manage the plenty in an impressive way so that in the time of famine Egypt became a place where others came for food. Besides, his brothers also wandered into Egypt and were flabbergasted to find that their brother whom they sold was now in charge as the Prime Minister. Joseph, rather than take revenge against them, took care of them. Whilst they trembled, he comforted them, saying it was not their fault. They meant it for evil but God meant it for good to preserve the lives of many in future.

5 But now, do not therefore be grieved or angry with yourselves because you sold me here; for God sent me before you to preserve life.
6 For these two years the famine has been in the land, and there are still five years in which there will be neither plowing nor harvesting.
7 And God sent me before you to preserve a posterity for you in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.
8 So now it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt. Gen 45:5-8

So expect the Supernatural hand of God in your quarantine. God is still the same. Expect your opening, your opportunity, your ‘light –bulb- moment’. It could be a new job opportunity. It could be an opportunity to witness and lead someone or people to Christ. It could be the opening of an online mega-business that makes you a household name or brand. It could be a new skill or sets of skills you develop whilst on lock down that sets you up for life. Make the most this opportunity. The path of the righteous is like a shining light that shines brighter and brighter to the full light of day. (Prov. 4:18)

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.
6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca, They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools.
7 They go from strength to strength; Ps84:5-7

Take this word and mix it with faith and run with it and make this lock down or quarantine work big for you.

I Walk in the Blessing Only ( By Fenny West)

I Walk in the Blessing Only

I Walk in the Blessing Only
Because I am  blessed
With every spiritual blessing
In heavenly places.
Christ nailed the curse to the cross.
And by so doing set me free from the curse.
I walk in the blessing only
Because I walk in the Word only
And in the Light that the Word sheds
In my path.

 There is only life- not death- but life.
We walk in the blessing only
Because the boundary lines
Have fallen in pleasant places for me.
And I  have a goodly, godly heritage.

I walk in the blessing only
Because I am the seed of Abraham
And Christ has Redeemed me from the curse of the law

that the blessing of Abraham might rest on me.

I walk in the blessings only
Because no curse causeless shall alight on me,
Christ fully paid the penalty of sin
When on the Cross He said, “It is finished.”

I  walk in the blessing only.
Because the expectation of the righteous

 shall not be cut off or cut short.
God said it and I believe it and that settles it.

Whose report shall I believe?

I walk in the blessing only
Christ is my life . My life is hidden in Christ in God

and He is not cursed.
He is the blessing of God to mankind.
As many as believe in Him are blessed.

I walk in the blessing only
Because as He is, so we am I in this world.
I am in Him and in Him is no curse.
In Him is love, peace, joy, light, eternal life
Abundant life, all wisdom, righteousness
Health, wealth, strength, insight, knowledge that surpasses.

I walk in the blessing only
As far as the east is from the west
So far have my transgression been removed

from me  and as high as the heavens are above the earth,

so great is His love towards me. He made me the head
And not the tail.

Surely, Goodness and mercy follow me all the days of our lives.

Step out of the Boat ( by Fenny West)

Step Out of the Boat

You have to have to step out 

of the boat to walk on water. 

You have to doubt your doubt;

Know there is a power higher

Able to do beyond your wildest dream. 

You have to step out in faith

Saying, “If I perish, I perish,” like Esther. 

And God would honour your faith

And You will not go under for going over. 

He will still the storm and wind that will blow;

And you too will ride the storm and cross over. 

So get out of your comfort zone

Step out of the comfort of the boat

And you’ll see the fruit of the faith sown

Defy the storm and the wind that dare. 

Keep your eyes on the Author and Finisher. 

Your test will surely bring a testimony. 

Your obstacle will birth a miracle

Your enemies will push you into your victory. 

Your adversity will bring prosperity and plenty. 

Your trials will blaze the trail of your triumph.

Stay in the Word1(by Fenny West)

STAY IN THE WORD

Stay in the Word
For a great reward
Stay in the Word
To get ahead.

Stay in the Word
To be well-fed.
Stay in the Word
To be the Head
And not the tail.
Stay in the Word

and you’ll not fail,
And will not trail.
Stay in the Word

and you’ll soar in your sail.

Stay in the Word
For Good Success
Stay in the Word
Meditate on it,
Proclaim, confess;
Renew your mind;
Mind your mind
And goodly heritage

 you’ll find.

Stay in the Word
For healing and health.
Stay in the Word 
For wisdom and wealth.

Stay in the Word 
For insight and foresight.
Stay in the Word for the 
Power of His might.

Stay in the Word
For faith-fuel
Stay in the Word
To win every duel.

Stay in the Word
To stay ahead
Stay in the Word
Because it’s bread.

Stay in the Word
It’s spirit and life
Stay in the Word
For abundant life.

Stay in the Word
Act on the Word
Work out the Word
War with the word
Walk in the Word
Win with the Word.

  3 To console those who mourn in Zion , To give them beauty for ashes , The oil of joy for mourning , The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;  That they may be called trees of righteousness , The planting of the Lord , that He may be glorified.” Isa61:3

The Gentiles Bless Zion    1 Arise , shine;  For your light has come!  And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isa60:1 17

Therefore , if anyone is in Christ , he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold , all things have become new. 2Cor.5:17 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. Jer29:11

5 Blessed is the man whose strength is in You , Whose heart is set on pilgrimage.   6 As they pass through the Valley of Baca , They make it a spring;  The rain also covers it with pools.   7 They go from strength to strength;  Each one appears before God in Zion. Ps84:5-7

A Perpetual Covenant of Peace  

1 “Sing , O barren , You who have not borne!  Break forth into singing , and cry aloud , You who have not labored with child!  For more are the children of the desolate  Than the children of the married woman , ” says the Lord.   2 “Enlarge the place of your tent , And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings;  Do not spare;  Lengthen your cords , And strengthen your stakes.   3 For you shall expand to the right and to the left , And your descendants will inherit the nations , And make the desolate cities inhabited.   4 “Do not fear , for you will not be ashamed;  Neither be disgraced , for you will not be put to shame;  For you will forget the shame of your youth , And will not remember the reproach of your widowhood anymore.

He Rose Up!

He Rose Up!

She was on the brink of death. Famine was ravaging the land of Zarephath. The cold hands of death had taken her husband and now a widow with an only son, they were next in line to die. Her house was empty. All she had was some flour and oil. And gathering sticks to make her last supper with her son and face the music, the death knell, prophet  Elijah strides in. The Lord had seen her desperate situation, her predicament and despondency. She was in dire straits. Only He could save her. But He had a method in mind- a seed that would trigger the meeting of her need. That method was even double-edged. He put His prophet to the test of reliance and obedience.

He who enjoyed the miraculous provision of the water in the brook where he hid from Jezebel suddenly found that it had dried up. And what more? the ravens that brought him his daily bread ceased in their divine charity mission. God now instructs him:

9 “Arise , go to Zarephath , which belongs to Sidon , and dwell there. See, I have commanded a widow there to provide for you.” 1Ki17:9

Notice, God did not say, “I am sending you to a millionaire…” The prophet was tested sore “Go to a widow?”…He was also specific about the location.  Elijah had the option to obey  or die from starvation and thirst. The brook had dried up. The ravens had finished their business. He was wise to obey God and go the widow as commanded. May be she is a rich widow who had been bequeathed millions by her late husband. No! On arrival he was greeted by the sorry sight of a widow facing death. Perhaps he was tempted to backtrack. God sent him to a poor widow? His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not our thoughts. His ways are higher than our ways. It is foolishness in the eyes of the world. But He uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26        For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.27 But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty;28 and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are,29 that no flesh should glory in His presence.1Cor1:25-29

This is the God who when the  children of Israel sinned and were dying of snake bites told Moses make a brazen serpent and raise it up and whoever look at it shall live. And when he obeyed those who look lived and did not die of the plague.  It was  He who told Moses to lift up his rod over the Red Sea to part it. It looked ridiculous at the time. But Moses obeyed and the sea was parted for the children of Israel to walk on dry ground. It was this same God who told Moses to strike the rock and that water will come out to quench their thirst. He did and water came out. Later when they had a similar trial, God told him, ‘This time, speak to the rock.’ Moses, in anger smote the rock and that landed him in hot water. He missed entering the Promised Land.

Our minds can play tricks on us at such times. And when we begin to ponder deeply the devil can butt in, “Yea, had God said, go to a widow? Do you really know your God? Is He not compassionate? How can He send you to such a poor widow to feed you? You have got it wrong. “

The prophet refused to budge. He refused to look at the outward appearance. He knew he heard from God who had sustained him miraculously at the brook with water and the cake from the birds of the air. He knows best. He brings water out of a rock. He does not delight in the legs of a man or the strength of a horse. His supplies our needs-not according to the richness of the channel He uses, but according to His riches in glory. Channels change but He-the Source-remains undiminished, unequalled, unparalleled. He had given His word. And if you will leave the “how” to Him, He would prove Himself to be Jehovah Jireh! He did as the prophet trusted Him and instructed the widow to defy her circumstance and first make him a cake. He then gave her a prophetic word of abundant supply which he knew God will honour. And He did. As she obeyed God, her flour and oil did not run dry. She was fed very well and so was the prophet. Glory to God.

After both of them passed the test with flying colours, then came another test.  Right before the presence of the prophet, her only son, who had experienced the divine intervention of miraculous supply fell ill and died. The widow was devastated and so was the prophet.

He realised it was the trial of his and her faith. She was desperate. It was as if her testimony was a white-wash, a mockery, a taunt and a mirage. She went to the prophet and he called on God.

21 And He stretched himself out on the child three times, and cried out to the Lord and said , “O Lord my God , I pray , let this child’s soul come back to him.” 22 Then the Lord heard the voice of Elijah; and the soul of the child came back to him , and He revived. 1Kings17:21-22

He rose up!

She had been prostrated, laid low in the jaws of famine God raised her and her son up but the enemy came again to kill her son. But as she and the prophet  persevered, God gave a mammoth victory. 

That is the victory that awaits you. You will rise and shine as you obey God and sow that seed He has put in your heart. He will open the windows of heaven and pour you out blessings, so much that there will not be room enough to contain it. And if the enemy comes like a flood on a counter attack, like he came to the widow, be adamant, be undaunted, be not moved, be strong and courageous. Be not afraid, neither be you dismayed. The Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against the enemy. Those who are with you are more than those against you. If God be for you who can be against you. The bigger the battle, the bigger the blessing. The bigger the test the bigger the testimony and triumph. That widow now, not only had a testimony of supper natural supply but also resurrection of her son from the dead.

When the enemy starts messing God’s starts His superabundant  blessing.

As you are obedient, God will change your playing field. He will open doors that cannot be shut. He will give you hidden riches in secret places  and treasures of darkness. He will begin to do exceeding abundantly, far beyond what you can ask or think; far beyond your wildest dreams. ( Isa45:1-3, Eph3:20)

He rose up! You will rise up too-in your finances, in your family, in your career, in your calling, in your marriage, in your ministry, in your mortgage,  in your house, in your health, in your business, in all you lay your hands to do in Jesus’ name. ( 1Ki17:17-24)

Rise up!
