Go and Speak ( by Fenny West)

Inspiration comes through challenges and in unusual circumstances:

Suddenly you have a “lightbulb moment”

I entered a Photo Inspiration  Challenge about a year ago with this picture below.

 

This was my inspiration: Jonah spat out of the mouth of the fish and washed ashore.

He had disobeyed God when told to go and preach at Nineveh. He boarded a ship to Tarshish and all hell broke loose on the ship. He knew he was the cause and asked to be thrown into the sea to save the lives of those on the ship. They did and there was a great calm. 

Jonah was swallowed by a big fish and there he repented and worshipped God, who had mercy on him and commanded the fish to spit him out. He was then washed ashore as we can see in the picture. Read Jonah Ch1 and 2 for the full gist.

What would your inspiration be?

 

Live a Purpose-driven Life ( by Fenny West)

 

Live a Purpose-driven Life 

Purpose is your reason for being; your raison d’etre. It is what draws you to wake up in the night to write, or do something even if you are not paid for it. Purpose drives you, fulfils you and defines you. 

Everyone has a purpose and a unique purpose at that. Everything has a purpose. Whether or not you know it, this does not preclude the fact that it has a purpose. Whether or not you know it, you have a purpose.

Abraham had a purpose. Despite the odds that were against him- being child-less, old to the point of having no sperm or low sperm-count and his wife also old and past her menopause, yet it did not matter to God. He had called them to be Father of many nations and mother of nations. Through him all the families of the earth would be blessed – pointer to Jesus. (Gen.12:1-3)

Eventually, the vision which tarried, delayed (as it were), came to pass in the fullness of time despite many challenges. And today, those who know Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are blessed- the seed of Abraham. ( Gen.15:1-7, Gen21:1-7)

Genesis 21: Isaac Is Born

1      And the LORD visited Sarah as He had said, and the LORD did for Sarah as He had spoken.

7      She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.”

Joseph had a purpose. He was to be instrumental for the preservation of Israel who will be enslaved in a foreign land for over 400 years.

“Know certainly that your descendants will be strangers in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them, and they will afflict them four hundred years. Gen15:13

 God revealed that purpose in pictures. Joseph understood that he would be in a prominent position and all his siblings would bow to him. However God did not share any details with him. In the fullness of time, after many difficulties and oppositions, it came to pass and he fulfilled his purpose, mission and vision.

Purpose Revealed

 “Please hear this dream which I have dreamed:

7      There we were, binding sheaves in the field. Then behold, my sheaf arose and also stood upright; and indeed your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.” Gen.37:6-7

Fulfilment

 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

Paul had a purpose, despite starting out as an adversary to the Church – arresting and persecuting Christians, overseeing their execution.

58   and they cast him out of the city and stoned him. And the witnesses laid down their clothes at the feet of a young man named Saul.

Act7:58

Acts 8: Saul Persecutes the Church

1              Now Saul was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem;

 However the more he opposed the Church, the more he was being magnetised to God.

Acts 9: The Damascus Road: Saul Converted

1      Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest

2              and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

        As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.

4      Then he fell to the ground, and heard a voice saying to him, “Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?”

5      And he said, “Who are You, Lord?” Then the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.”

6      So he, trembling and astonished, said, “Lord, what do You want me to do?” Then the Lord said to him, “Arise and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

I have appeared to you for this purpose, to make you a minister and a witness both of the things which you have seen and of the things which I will yet reveal to you.

17   I will deliver you from the Jewish people, as well as from the Gentiles, to whom I now send you,

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.’Act26:16-18

 And this enemy of the Church, was gloriously, dramatically and unquestionably converted into a saint and trophy in the hand of God. Saul of Tarsus became St Paul who used the same zeal with which he opposed Christianity to forget the past and reaching forth for that which to press on for the mark of prize of his high-calling in Christ Jesus (Phil3:13-14). He went on to build churches, raise disciples and write 13 best-sellers of all time, giving us incredible revelation of Whose we are, what we are in Christ, and what we have in Christ. Paul would not be deterred by opposition. He was stoned many times, imprisoned many times, often shipwrecked, beaten with rods, lashed 39 strokes 5 times, misrepresented, mistreated, maligned, but he kept pressing on. He once said, “None of these things move me… ” Why? He was focused on completing his purpose( Acts20:24) and he did with finesse and was able to declare:

Paul’s Valedictory

6      For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand.

7      I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

8      Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.

Our Saviour, Jesus had a purpose. He knew that purpose, was passionate about that purpose, pursued that purpose and regardless of opposition, remained undaunted, unrelenting, uncompromising, unwavering until He said,”Teleiose” ( It finished!) ( John1:29, Luke2:49,John18:28-38, 1John3:8, John19:30)

Moses had a purpose – delivering the Children of Israel from the House of Bondage

11           Now it came to pass in those days, when Moses was grown, that he went out to his brethren and looked at their burdens. Ex2:11

24   By faith Moses, when he became of age, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh’s daughter,

25   choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy the passing pleasures of sin,

26   esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt; for he looked to the reward.

27   By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king; for he endured as seeing Him who is invisible. Heb11 :24-27

. Moses knew about his purpose but missed the timing, killed someone and ran for his life. He went to a foreign land, changed his “passport”, got married, got a job as a Shepherd. He had started  speaking “sheepinese”, had almost forgotten his purpose. But one day, God found him in the back side of a desert and reminded him. 

“Moses, Moses!”

“I have surely seen the oppression of My people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows.

8      So I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up from that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey…

9      Now therefore, behold, the cry of the children of Israel has come to Me, and I have also seen the oppression with which the Egyptians oppress them.

10           Come now, therefore, and I will send you to Pharaoh that you may bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt.”( Ex3:4,7-10)

Moses resisted God, gave every excuse in the world why he was not qualified.

“O my Lord, I am not eloquent, neither before nor since You have spoken to Your servant; but I am slow of speech and slow of tongue.” (Ex4:10)

But God, who does not call the qualified but qualifies the called, convinced Moses that all he needed was His presence. Moses recapitulated and took up the gauntlet and went back to Egypt to confront Pharaoh with what God said, “Let My people go.” 

Moses’ purpose was resisted, not only by Pharaoh but even by his own people. God displayed signs and wonders in Egypt culminating in the death of the first born in each household before Pharaoh recapitulated to let God’s people go. Moses fulfilled his vision. He took them out Bondage. 

30   So Pharaoh rose in the night, he, all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

The Exodus

31           Then he called for Moses and Aaron by night, and said, “Rise, go out from among my people, both you and the children of Israel. And go, serve the LORD as you have said.Ex12:30-31

Joshua had a purpose – to take them into the Promised Land. “He takes us out bondage, our encumbrance and hindrance to take us into our inheritance and dance. Joshua fulfilled His purpose like Jesus did.

Esther had a purpose – to avert what would have been the first holocaust, in Shushan the citadel, Persia, during the reign of King Ahasuerus. Mordecai was like the Holy Spirit-the guide, who counselled her during the contest for a new queen, which Esther won. He also revealed her purpose in the palace for such a time as that. “…who knows whether you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?”(Esther4:14)

Esther played ball and the Jews were preserved. She fulfilled her purpose. ( Esther7:3-10)

Nehemiah was burdened about Jerusalem, even though he was in a foreign land as an exile in a lucrative employment. He mourned, fasted and prayed when he learned about the broken down walls of Jerusalem.(Neh1:3-4)

God used him to answer his prayer as He gave him favour with the King, who became sympathetic to the cause, permitting him, not only to go and rebuild the wall, but gave him supplies and security.

. (Neh.2:3-9)

Nehemiah went back and commenced his purpose and despite much opposition, remained resolute until he completed rebuilding the wall in 52 days, to the glory of God. 

The Wall Completed

15   So the wall was finished…, in fifty-two days.Neh.6:15

And You, yes, YOU, reader; You under the sound of my voice, you have a purpose, a unique purpose. Unless you find that purpose, life will not have a true meaning for you. But if you have found that purpose, congratulations! Your life will find fulfilment if you are following that purpose, fulfilling that purpose and sold out to that purpose.

Friend, find your purpose. Pursue your purpose. Live a purpose driven life. Live before you die. 

If you do not have a personal relationship with God; if you are not born again, come and acknowledge Jesus as your Lord and Saviour. Without the Way, there is no going. Without the Truth, there is no knowing or knowledge and without the Life, there is no living. Invite Jesus Christ into your life and His Spirit will guide you into your purpose – your reason for being. Spend and be spent for that purpose and you will not only be fulfilled but have eternal incomparable rewards.

Live a Purpose -driven Life!

Let us pray

Father, I thank You for being born for such a time as this. I was born for a purpose, born for a reason. This reason shall not only be found but pursued and fulfilled to your glory. Your Spirit will guide me each step of the way to live Your dream, in the name of Jesus. Thank You, Lord, that my purpose is unique and fitting for me. I shall learn from others but not be a photo-copy of others. I am well-fitted for my purpose. Nothing will stop me from fulfilling my purpose, in Jesus’ Name.

Results in a successful completion with finesse

 

The Wall Completed

15   So the wall was finished on the twenty-fifth day of Elul, in fifty-two days.

16           And it happened, when all our enemies heard of it, and all the nations around us saw these things, that they were very disheartened in their own eyes; for they perceived that this work was done by our God. Neh6:15-16

 

2      The LORD was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.

3      And his master saw that the LORD was with him and that the LORD made all he did to prosper in his hand.

4      So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority.

5      So it was, from the time that he had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that the LORD blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the LORD was on all that he had in the house and in the field.

 

21   But the LORD was with Joseph and showed him mercy, and He gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.

22   And the keeper of the prison committed to Joseph’s hand all the prisoners who were in the prison; whatever they did there, it was his doing.

23           The keeper of the prison did not look into anything that was under Joseph’s authority, because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made it prosper. Gen39:2-5,21-23

Paul’s Valedictory

6      For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure is at hand.

7      I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

8              Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.2Tim4:6-8

Paul

“You know, from the first day that I came to Asia, in what manner I always lived among you,

19   serving the Lord with all humility, with many tears and trials which happened to me by the plotting of the Jews;

20   how I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house,

21   testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

22   And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there,

23   except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me.

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.

Acts 20:18-24

Nothing To Fear(2) ( Fenny West)

Nothing To Fear

Nothing to fear
The Lord is near
His presence makes a difference
And that is your defence
That should be your confidence.

Jesus destroyed the works of the devil
Jesus neutralised principalities and powers
Jesus clinched back the dominion we lost
Jesus is now sitting with us at the Father’s right hand.

33 These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

 “…Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.
2 When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire, you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.

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.

There Is a Name Greater than Covid19 ( By Fenny West)

There Is a Name Greater

The Greater the Test

The Greater the Testimony

The greater the trial

The greater the triumph

Our God is greater than the greatest

Higher than the highest

Stronger than the strongest

Bigger than the biggest

Wiser than the wisest

He is the Sovereign God

Able to do exceeding abundantly

Far above what we can ask or think or dream of;

Far beyond our wildest dreams

According to the power at work in us.

He can be trusted to keep against that day

that entrusted into His Hands

There is a Name- Jesus- Greater

Than any other name

 

9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name,
10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Phil2:9-11

12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” Acts4:12

“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues;
18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Living His Dream ( by Fenny West)

Living  His Dream

God has a Dream for you;
An expectation of You;
A hope for your calling;
A dividend for your believing.

Know, much has been invested in you.
He sent the Best, His beloved Son for you.
He did not spare Him from Cross, for you.
Jesus went and shed His blood for you.

That sacrifice was the full price paid.
Yes, on the Cross His life He laid.
It was done; the deal was fully done
By the only One qualified – the Son.

Oh, what a great price He willingly paid
To guarantee our acceptance, salvation!
Oh what a bridge He eternally made,
To justify us and make us New Creation!

And now His dream is that You win,
No matter what happens, that you win;
No matter what you face, that you win;
Regardless of the wind, that you win.

Press on in the Name above all Names.
Set your face like a flint in that Name.
Know that you know He’s ever the same,
His power towards you is still the same.

Put your hands in His hands, keep standing.
Put your faith in His word, keep believing.
Keep your eyes on Jesus-the Author and Finisher.

Be the Best ( by Fenny West)

 

BE the BEST

Be the best
By giving your best;
‘cause God gave his best-Jn 3:16
Jesus the First and the Last , the Best of the best
Be the best,
Not the rest.
Beat the rest.
Pass every test.
Stand the tempest.
Kill the pests
Employ your zest.
Surf the crest.
Let your potential manifest.
Stop being a guest.
Join in, give your best.
Make a divine quest.
Keep abreast.
Know the Best of the best.

See the light
Be a light.
Go in God’s might.
Be a Paul –not a Saul.
Insure your call.
Stand very tall.

Be the first
Beat the first.
Aim higher than the first.
Create a thirst.
Quench God’s thirst.
Beat the beast.
Rise from being the least.
Win the war.
Keep His law.

Like Joseph, be the best
Like Daniel, be the best.
Like Paul, be the best.
Like Esther, be the best.
Like Dorcas, be the best
Like David, be the best.

To be the best,
Wise-up first;
By putting God first.
Scale the crest.
Sit the test.
Pass, excel in the test.
Beat the beasts and pests,
Be full of manifest zest,
Take no undue rests.

To be the best,
Pursue, be on a quest.
Leave the feathered nest.
Work hard, quit being a guest.
Properly invest
In yourself invest.
In your future invest.
In your family invests.

To be the best,
Define your destination.
Deter all distraction.
Press to the end.
Never pretend.
Rise from mediocrity.
Embrace integrity.
Marry excellence
Pay the price for the prize.
Give your all, sacrifice.
Believe not the devil’s lies.

To be the best,
Get out of bed.
Be the head
And not the tail.
You’re not born to fail.
But born to prevail.
Let His word prevail.
Set your sail and sail.
Sour on eagle’s wings
Let His praises ring.
Leave a legacy.
Leave good history,
And a good testimony.
You’re born to win
And not for the bin.

To be the best,
Retreat to advance.
Finish very well.
On the past never dwell.
In His secret place ever dwell.
Every goliath fell.
Find financial freedom.
Find and keep the keys of the Kingdom.
Take complete dominion.
Be a champion.
Rise to a new dimension.
Turn your rejection
Into divine direction.

To be the best
Keep your head
Even when you’re ahead
Doubt your doubt.
Keep your mouth
You must be stout.
You must have clout.
Use adversity
For maturity and prosperity.
Use opposition
For progression and promotion.
Give divine love.
Always improve.
Shun not reproof.
Don’t be aloof.
Maximise your potential.
Fight not the unessential.

To be the best,
Value your time
Use well your time.
Know your purpose.
Pursue your purpose.
Know your reason.
Know your season
Make most of the season best;
With the currency, keep abreast.
Go from conquest to conquest.
Give your soul a feast.
Know that you’re blest
To be a blessing first.
