Abundance of the Seas Will Come(2) ( Fenny West)

Abundance of the seas will come,

When all is said and done.

Because the silver is His

And so is the gold;

And you are an heir of God

And joint-heir with Christ.

Hidden riches in secret places will come

Because you have put God’s kingdom and His righteousness first and set your heart on things above, where thieves will not break in and steal, where moth or rot will not corrupt.

The grace for superabundance is yours,

Because you have sown to the spirit and not the flesh. The eyes of your spirit will be flooded with light as never before and you will see that which is freely given to you; your inheritance amongst the saints in light.

The Good Shepherd will lead you to your Green Pastures and Land of Plenty- even more than enough. Because you have watered, you will in turn be watered. The bread you have cast upon the waters are coming back to you, good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over.

Putting Childish things Away ( by Fenny West)

Putting Childish Things Away

 (Health, Healing and Finance)

1 Corinthians 13:11, NIV: “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”

Children are not born talking like adults. They start with babbling-ta,ba, ma, etc until they are able to form words to communicate their needs. Most of the time they cry to get the attention of the adults around them to meet their needs.

They learn to communicate with adults from the stimulus they get from hearing from their parents and the environment around them.

As a parent however, you expect a gradual development from babyhood, where they always cry to get what they want, to when they actually tell you what they want instead of keeping you guessing. If they are not talking at the age of to three, as a parent, you will become concerned, would you not? Also at some stage in their lives you would your children to go and get food from the fridge and eat and eventually be able to stand on their feet, so to speak.

All truths are parallel. Life is spiritual.

God wants us (those born again), to grow up from babyhood to adolescence to adulthood.

He wants us to grow in grace and stop talking like children it thinking like children or reasoning like children but put childish things away.

That is the thrust of our key scripture:

When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” 1 Corinthians 13:11

God said, “My children are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” Hosea 4:6

Knowledge of God is derived from His word. God is married and tied to His word. The extent to which you know and practice His word is the extent to which you know Him. ( Jer9:24)

This is why we need to daily meditate on His word so much so that it is registered, imprinted on our hearts and regulates our speaking. His word says, “out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. (Josh1:8, 1Tim.4:15, Col3:16, John15:7 Luke6:45, Matt12:35)

We are supposed to speak in line with the Word of God, God’s mind and will for us, not whatever we feel or see.  28      Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you: (Num14:28) Those who died in the wilderness got what they spoke. In the same way, when you speak life, you will get life. We speak wisdom.

7      But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory,


Paul and Silas were divinely directed to go to Philippi. There they preached the word of God so powerfully that some religious and satanic spirits were stirred against them. They were falsely accused and badly beaten with rods and thrown into a dungeon of a prison.

A babe in Christ would have been crying and moaning in the prison and accusing God of directing them ‘from the frying pan into fire’.

Instead what did they do?

At midnight, to they began to pray and sing and they did not do it quietly. The other prisoners heard them (Acts16:25). The aroma of their Praise rose up to God as a sweet smelling savour and God, in delight, sent an earthquake that rocked the foundation of the prison to set them free. 

Their response to trouble, trial and calamity with songs of praise and prayer was akin to talking like an adult, reasoning like an adult and understanding as an adult and they evoked and triggered God’s power.

The result was that they were not just delivered miraculously, but their response resulted in the salvation of the prison warden and his entire household. And there was great joy and feasting and God was glorified. They fulfilled their mission and destiny regardless of the suffering trial and tribulation. It is said that it is not what you face that matter but the way you respond to it. They responded positively, did the ridiculous and obtained the miraculous.

Try it and you too will see the miraculous in your life. Jesus Christ is still the same, yesterday today and forever. (Hebrews 13:8)

Let us look back at the story of the 12 spies sent to spy the Promised Land and bring a report in Numbers 13 and 14.

Ten of the spies brought an evil report because they forgot Who was on their side. They focused on the giants and exaggerated what they saw and made most of the people wail and lament being brought out of Egypt.

“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. (Num.13 v27 -28)

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.”

“Let us select a leader and return to Egypt.” ( Num.14:4)

On the other hand, Caleb and Joshua took sides with God and spoke like “adults” and God was impressed with them.

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.”

6      But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh, who were among those who had spied out the land, tore their clothes;

7      and they spoke to all the congregation of the children of Israel, saying: “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land.

8      If the LORD delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’

9      Only do not rebel against the LORD, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the LORD is with us. Do not fear them.”

This was why whilst others died in the wilderness, Caleb and Joshua survived and entered the Promised Land.

7      “How long shall I bear with this evil congregation who complain against Me? I have heard the complaints which the children of Israel make against Me.

28   Say to them, ‘As I live,’ says the LORD, ‘just as you have spoken in My hearing, so I will do to you:

29   The carcasses of you who have complained against Me shall fall in this wilderness, all of you who were numbered, according to your entire number, from twenty years old and above.Num14:27-29

This is a great lesson for us believers. Unless we know who we are and what we have and Whose we are, we will either lack knowledge or be ignorant and the consequences are not worth contemplating.  It is worth noting that ignorance is not lack of knowledge but ignoring the knowledge that you know. And that is tantamount to being a fool.

The fool says in his heart, “There is no God.” They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. Ps14:1

God does not want us to be fools. Those who come to Him must believe that He exists and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Heb.11:6)

We have a glorious inheritance in Christ.

32“So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32

Paul’s mission was: 18           to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me. Acts26:18

We are blessed with every spiritual blessings..

3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, Eph1:3

A Heavenly Inheritance

3      Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

4      to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,


We have exceeding Great and Precious Promises. We are partaker of the divine nature.

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. 2Pet.1:3-4

All things are ours. (1Cor3:21) We are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ.

 ( Rom.8:17)

So Divine Health is ours. Healing is the bread of children. (Matt 13:19-22)

Unless we know this truth and walk in it we will remain babes, babbling and weak, and sick frequently and requiring healing whilst God’s will for us is to walk in health. But when we grab a hold of our inheritance in Christ we will not be moved by what we see or feel. We will command our body to line up with the word of God. We will not wait until feel pain to use God’s Word as medication for meditation. We will use it daily and remain in health according to the word of God.

2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3John 1:2

Notice two things: “Above all” and “Being in health”. Being in health is God’s perfect will for you. If you are not convinced about this, you will accommodate and pet sickness and disease in your body.

 Do you know that to say,” I am sick.” Is baby talk?  (Isa 33:24)

We know we were healed by His stripes (Isa53:4, 1Pet2:24) and if we were healed, we are healed. When we grow to be adults, we will stand on the revealed truth that we are the temple of God and sickness and disease cannot dwell in the temple of God. We know that those who are joined to the Lord become one Spirit with Him.1Cor.6:17 The life that flows through the Vine flows through the branches 5      “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. John15:5.

So What Do You Do when You are Attacked?

We are in a spiritual warfare. Use your weapons of warfare ( 2Cor10:3-4, Eph6:10-17). The best form of defence is to attack. Do not wait to be sick. Use the word of God to ward-off sickness and disease. Eat the right food. Have enough rest. Be voracious for the Word of God. Feed your faith and not your fear. The just shall live by faith. (Romans1:17)

Speak to your systems and organs to comply with the Word of God -your medicine.

The same applies to our finances. We apply the principles of God’s word and we are confident that our needs will be met according to His riches in glory (Ps1:1, 4, Phil4:19, Ps37:23, Luke 6:38). We do not speak out of turn because of any temporary set-backs. We keep affirming the faithfulness of God Who never fails.

We grow in grace from Infancy to Maturity, babyhood to adulthood (2Pet.3:18). When we were children, we spoke as children, reasoned as children, and understood as children. But when we became adults, we put childish things away. (1Cor13:11)

Seeing the Invisible

So my friend, meditate on God’s word daily. Refuse to be moved by what you see or feel or the other senses but by the infallible, living, powerful and dynamic Word of life and win any day anywhere and anytime. Talk right and live the victorious and higher life ordained for you.

16   Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17   For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

18   while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

1 Corinthians 13:11, NIV: “When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.”

Talk like Paul:

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. 2Cor4:7-10

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?

35   Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

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.


24           But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

When you become an adult in Christ, you will not say “I am sick.” You know It does not line up with the mind and will of God for you. You say what God said about you, regardless of how you feel or experience. You use the word of God to countermand any circumstance that is contrary to the will of God.

24           And the inhabitant will not say, “I am sick”; The people who dwell in it will be forgiven their iniquity. Isa33:24

This is how an adult in Christ speaks.

We know we were healed by His stripes and if we were healed, we are healed. ( Isa53:4-5, 1Pet2:24) We will stand on the revealed truth that we are the temple of God and sickness cannot dwell in the temple of God. We know that those who are joined to the Lord become one spirit with Him (1Cor6:17). The life that flows through the Vine flows through the branches (John15:5). You speak (like Ezekiel spoke to the valley of dry bones)  to your systems and organs to comply with the Word of God -your medicine.

You need to know that eternal life does not harbour sickness.

13           These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God. 1John5:13

John- the beloved tells us:

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

He also shows us that there are different stages in our spiritual growth:

Their Spiritual State

12   I write to you, little children, Because your sins are forgiven you for His name’s sake.

13   I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, Because you have overcome the wicked one. I write to you, little children, Because you have known the Father.

14   I have written to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, Because you are strong, and the word of God abides in you, And you have overcome the wicked one. 1John2:12-14

Aspire to grow from being a child to being a father and able to beget others as you lead them to Christ and nurture them with the truth you have learnt so that they also grow into adulthood.

The writer of Hebrews also allude to the need for spiritual growth and progressing from milk to the meat of God’s word.

Spiritual Immaturity

12   For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food.

13   For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.

14   But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is, those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.


Let Us pray:

Heavenly Father, I thank You that I am joined with You and sickness and disease cannot be joined with Your temple. My body and my systems and organs align with Your word at all times. Your Word is my medication for meditation day and night and I am made every wit whole. I am strong in You and in Your mighty power. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Thank You also that all things are mine and I am blessed with every spiritual blessing. You supply all my needs according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. I am blessed to be a blessing to You, Your house and my world. I receive divine ideas for increase and prosperity and I lack nothing good, because You are my Shepherd, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Abundance of the Seas Will Come(1) ( 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

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.

From Penury To Prosperity I Go
