I Will Open your Womb ( by Fenny West)

Your Womb Will Open

Some May See You Dead
But I see you asleep. 
Believe Me instead 
And you will not weep. 

Some may write you off
Because you are barren
But I am more than enough
Your womb I will open. 

Some may say he’s (she’s) hopeless 
But look beyond the seen
Believe, do and confess
On my word always lean.

11   These things said he: and after that he saith unto them, Our friend Lazarus sleepeth; but I go, that I may awake him out of sleep.

12   Then said his disciples, Lord, if he sleep, he shall do well.

23   Jesus saith unto her, Thy brother shall rise again.

34   And said, Where have ye laid him? They said unto him, Lord, come and see.

35   Jesus wept.

36   Then said the Jews, Behold how he loved him!

37   And some of them said, Could not this man, which opened the eyes of the blind, have caused that even this man should not have died?

38   Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it.

39   Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days.

40   Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God?

41   Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me.

42   And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me.

43   And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.

44   And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go

Sing, O barren.”
Isaiah 54:1

Though we have brought forth some fruit unto Christ, and have a joyful hope that we are “plants of his own right hand planting,” yet there are times when we feel very barren. Prayer is lifeless, love is cold, faith is weak, each grace in the garden of our heart languishes and droops. We are like flowers in the hot sun, requiring the refreshing shower. In such a condition what are we to do? The text is addressed to us in just such a state. “Sing, O barren, break forth and cry aloud.” But what can I sing about? I cannot talk about the present, and even the past looks full of barrenness. Ah! I can sing of Jesus Christ. I can talk of visits which the Redeemer has aforetimes paid to me; or if not of these, I can magnify the great love wherewith he loved his people when he came from the heights of heaven for their redemption. I will go to the cross again. Come, my soul, heavy laden thou wast once, and thou didst lose thy burden there. Go to Calvary again. Perhaps that very cross which gave thee life may give thee fruitfulness. What is my barrenness? It is the platform for his fruit-creating power. What is my desolation? It is the black setting for the sapphire of his everlasting love. I will go in poverty, I will go in helplessness, I will go in all my shame and backsliding, I will tell him that I am still his child, and in confidence in his faithful heart, even I, the barren one, will sing and cry aloud.

Sing, believer, for it will cheer thine own heart, and the hearts of other desolate ones. Sing on, for now that thou art really ashamed of being barren, thou wilt be fruitful soon; now that God makes thee loath to be without fruit he will soon cover thee with clusters. The experience of our barrenness is painful, but the Lord’s visitations are delightful. A sense of our own poverty drives us to Christ, and that is where we need to be, for in him is our fruit found.

You Too Can Bounce Back (by C. H. Spurgeon)

You Too Can Bounce Back

T stand and knock CGA8 ps23 restoresmy soul I am with You always God is righteous shalom

“Oh that I were as in months past.” Job 29:2

Numbers of Christians can view the past with pleasure, but regard the present with dissatisfaction; they look back upon the days which they have passed in communing with the Lord as being the sweetest and the best they have ever known, but as to the present, it is clad in a sable garb of gloom and dreariness. Once they lived near to Jesus, but now they feel that they have wandered from him, and they say, “O that I were as in months past!” They complain that they have lost their evidences, or that they have not present peace of mind, or that they have no enjoyment in the means of grace, or that conscience is not so tender, or that they have not so much zeal for God’s glory. The causes of this mournful state of things are manifold. It may arise through a comparative neglect of prayer, for a neglected closet is the beginning of all spiritual decline. Or it may be the result of idolatry. The heart has been occupied with something else, more than with God; the affections have been set on the things of earth, instead of the things of heaven. A jealous God will not be content with a divided heart; he must be loved first and best. He will withdraw the sunshine of his presence from a cold, wandering heart. Or the cause may be found in self-confidence and self-righteousness. Pride is busy in the heart, and self is exalted instead of lying low at the foot of the cross. Christian, if you are not now as you “were in months past,” do not rest satisfied with wishing for a return of former happiness, but go at once to seek your Master, and tell him your sad state. Ask his grace and strength to help you to walk more closely with him; humble yourself before him, and he will lift you up, and give you yet again to enjoy the light of his countenance. Do not sit down to sigh and lament; while the beloved Physician lives there is hope, nay there is a certainty of recovery for the worst cases.

From Maniac To Minister ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

From Maniac to Minister

“He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.”
Mark 16:9

Mary of Magdala was the victim of a fearful evil. She was possessed by not one devil only, but seven. These dreadful inmates caused much pain and pollution to the poor frame in which they had found a lodging. Hers was a hopeless, horrible case. She could not help herself, neither could any human succour avail. But Jesus passed that way, and unsought, and probably even resisted by the poor demoniac, he uttered the word of power, and Mary of Magdala became a trophy of the healing power of Jesus. All the seven demons left her, left her never to return, forcibly ejected by the Lord of all. What a blessed deliverance! What a happy change! From delirium to delight, from despair to peace, from hell to heaven! Straightway she became a constant follower of Jesus, catching his every word, following his devious steps, sharing his toilsome life; and withal she became his generous helper, first among that band of healed and grateful women who ministered unto him of their substance. When Jesus was lifted up in crucifixion, Mary remained the sharer of his shame: we find her first beholding from afar, and then drawing near to the foot of the cross. She could not die on the cross with Jesus, but she stood as near it as she could, and when his blessed body was taken down, she watched to see how and where it was laid. She was the faithful and watchful believer, last at the sepulchre where Jesus slept, first at the grave whence he arose. Her holy fidelity made her a favoured beholder of her beloved Rabboni, who deigned to call her by her name, and to make her his messenger of good news to the trembling disciples and Peter. Thus grace found her a maniac and made her a minister, cast out devils and gave her to behold angels, delivered her from Satan, and united her forever to the Lord Jesus. May I also be such a miracle of grace!

If sickness has come to camp in your body and challenging you, causing pain, weakness, misery, hopelessness, depression, disillusionment, discouragement, despair, even desperation, then rise up and fight and make this your daily confession or diet. Meditate on these scriptures daily , even more than once.  Pray the scriptures back to God. Fast and pray if need be to show you mean business, apart from the health and spiritual benefits of fasting. This especially essential if sickness has made a bridgehead on your body or become a stronghold, telling you, ‘I belong here. I have been here a long time. This is my home.’  Refuse to budge. Exercise your faith and take God at His word

Eat healthily and do daily exercise. This will help you too. However, bodily exercise whilst good will not get rid of every disease. You need to redouble your armament against the disease or ailment. Do not give the disease any excuses to stay. You may have been told it is hereditary and for life. You can break that chain in our family with the word of God. I had asthma and which degenerated to a point where I needed more than one inhaler. I became fed up with it and fought back with the word of God and prayer and I am now free by the grace of God. I don’t use any inhalers again. Praise the Lord. Occasionally I am challenged however but I have had to stand on the word of God and prayer rather than depending on medication. My stance not only brought about my healing but also boosted my faith and has given me a testimony. Trials of life are meant to bring testimonies if we respond to them appropriately.

However I warn you that this is a fight of faith- a good fight of faith. The more you stand your ground and on the word, the more your faith will be boosted and you will become stronger.

Obviously, I am assuming that you are a believer- born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. If you are not born again, whilst eating well and exercising can go a long way to revive your health and ward off some sicknesses and disease, you cannot depend on this discipline for divine healing. You must be born again, filled with the Holy Spirit and begin to grow your faith in God. Otherwise, you can confess the words till you’re blue in the face, it will not work because you will not be able to believe what you’re confessing.

15   And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.

16   But unto the wicked God saith, What hast thou to do to declare my statutes, or that thou shouldest take my covenant in thy mouth?

17   Seeing thou hatest instruction, and castest my words behind thee.

The wicked here stands for those who do not believe- not because they have done any thing despicable. The word of God is a covenant- an agreement. And before you can stand on the basis of the covenant ou have to be a party to it.

Divine healing is part of the kingdom of God and Jesus said except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God. Salvation is more than being reconciled to God. it encompasses deliverance, healing, preservation and provision and health.

Also it is important to know that whereas it is possible to obtain miracles- instantaneous results with no medical explanation- God could intend healing or deliverance for you and this could be gradual- ‘little by little’

22 And the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you little by little; you will be unable to destroy them at once, lest the beasts of the field become too numerous for you.Deut7:22

…they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark16:18b

And so the route of recovery may not appeal to many people in this age of ‘instant this’ and instant that.’

Yes, more often than not we all would all prefer miracles and fuelled by this fast food mentality, but it will not always work. God want you to grow in our faith. You too should see the necessity of growing our faith. And that takes time and effort and commitment and is it not worth it?

( see other articles , poems , sermons and songs on divine healing, being Born Again, and develop your faith.

We are all challenged in our bodies from time to time b ut we must not resign ourselves to the ravages of disease and sickness by making excuses for them to camp in us and make us miserable and ineffective and in desperation. We need to break free from their stranglehold and captivity in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Spirit.

Fight the good fight of faith. God is for you and not against you. See our body as the temple of God- divine territory. See sickness as a foreign body, a trespasser, an encroacher that has to be given its marching orders. Fight the good fight of faith with God’s word –the sword of the spirit. It is dynamic, living, active, razor-sharp, and with the ability to pierce your whole being- spirit soul and boy, all your cells, muscles, ligaments and system. Address your areas of concern specifically. If they have given it a name, know that the name of Jesus is more potent and powerful to expel it or subdue it. Exercise our dominion over that sickness or condition, in Jesus’ name. Flush any disease or impurities out of the temple of God!

God is a covenant-keeping God and delights in his child coming to Him in prayer on the basis of covenant and he finished work on Calvary’s cross. You need to know that you know that you know that Jesus did not only does to save us from our sins and reconcile us to God, He also took our sicknesses and pain. By His stripes we were healed. The New Covenant is avails and prevails and assails when ou stand on it after being born again. It is a covenant established on better promises. But you have to know these promises by heart and apply them consistently without wavering, regardless of how you feel. We need to pray without ceasing. We need to walk by faith and not by sight. We also need to praise and worship and give thanks before we see the results (Phil4:6-7 1Thess5:17, Job2:

18   While he was still speaking, another also came and said, “Your sons and daughters were eating and drinking wine in their oldest brother’s house,19 and suddenly a great wind came from across the wilderness and struck the four corners of the house, and it fell on the young people, and they are dead; and I alone have escaped to tell you!”

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. Job1:18-22

7     So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.8 And he took for himself a potsherd with which to scrape himself while he sat in the midst of the ashes.

9     Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”

10   But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

Job2:7-10

So gradual recovery route may be what God intends for you because it is best for you. You have to accept it but this is different from giving excuses for the disease to stay. Building up your faith is essential for other issues that you will face in life and God wants us to be strong in Him and in His mighty power. He wants us to walk by faith and not by sight. He wants our sufficiency to be of Him and not of ourselves. The faith-life you build through your challenges will last you a life time.  However by just resigning yourself to the sickness and moaning and complaining will not build your faith. You will be suffering for no just cause. But when you take God at His word with a bull-dog tenacity and fight, you will eventually obtain the victory and your faith boosted in the process. And you too can help others break free.

See my other videos and articles of divine healing: Healing Stream, Healing Haven, SMART: Healing scriptures, faith and the word of God.

God says:

20     My son, give attention to my words;

       Incline your ear to my sayings.

21     Do not let them depart from your eyes;

       Keep them in the midst of your heart;

22     For they are life to those who find them,

       And health to all their flesh.

23     Keep your heart with all diligence,

       For out of it spring the issues of life.

Prov4:20-22

26 and said, “If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you.”

Ex15:26

4       Surely He has borne our griefs

       And carried our sorrows;

       Yet we esteemed Him stricken,

       Smitten by God, and afflicted.

5       But He was wounded for our transgressions,

       He was bruised for our iniquities;

       The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,

                And by His stripes we are healed.Isa53:4-5, ( 1Pet2:24) Matt8:16

2       But to you who fear My name

       The Sun of Righteousness shall arise

                With healing in His wings;Mal4:2

1     Bless the LORD, O my soul;

     And all that is within me, bless His holy name!

2     Bless the LORD, O my soul,

     And forget not all His benefits:

3     Who forgives all your iniquities,

     Who heals all your diseases,

4     Who redeems your life from destruction,

     Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies,

5     Who satisfies your mouth with good things,

        So that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.Ps103:3

Matt8:3

2          Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 1Jn3:2

20   He sent His word and healed them,

        And delivered them from their destructions. Ps107:20

These scriptures should be your medication for meditation and prayer fuel. If you take these seriously victory is assured in Jesus’ name.

How Can I Overcome Discouragement ( by Rick Warren)

“Then the people of Judah said, ‘The work crews are worn out, and there is too much rubble. We can’t continue to rebuild the wall.’” (Nehemiah 4:10 GWT)

                   Discouragement is curable. Whenever I get discouraged, I head straight to Nehemiah. This great leader of ancient Israel understood there were four reasons for discouragement.

First, you get fatigued. You simply get tired as the laborers did in Nehemiah 4:10. We’re human beings, and we wear out. You cannot burn the candle at both ends. So if you’re discouraged, it may be you don’t have to change anything. You just need a vacation! Sometimes the most spiritual thing you can do is go to bed.

Second, you get frustrated. Nehemiah says there was rubble all around, so much that it was getting in the way of rebuilding the wall. Do you have rubble in your life? Have you noticed that anytime you start doing something new, the trash starts piling up?

                   If you don’t clean it out periodically, it’s going to stop your progress. You can’t avoid it, so you need to learn to recognize it and dispose of it quickly so you don’t lose focus on your original intention.

Third, you think you’ve failed. Nehemiah’s people were unable to finish their task as quickly as originally planned and, as a result, their confidence collapsed. They were thinking, “We were stupid to think we could ever rebuild this wall.”

But you know what I do when I don’t reach a goal on time? I just set a new goal. I don’t give up. Everybody fails. Everybody does foolish things. So the issue is not that you failed; it’s how you respond to your failure.

                   Do you give in to self-pity? Do you start blaming other people? Do you start complaining that it’s impossible? Or, do you refocus on God’s intentions and start moving again?

Finally, when you give in to fear, you get discouraged. Nehemiah 4 suggests the people most affected by fear are those who hang around negative people. If you’re going to control the negative thoughts in your life, you’ve got to get away from negative people as much as you can.

                   Maybe you’re discouraged because of fear. You’re dealing with fears like, “I can’t handle this. It’s too much responsibility.” Maybe it’s the fear that you don’t deserve it or the fear of criticism. Fear will destroy your life if you let it. But you can choose to resist the discouragement. Say, “God, help me get my eyes off the problem and the circumstance and keep my eyes on you.”

Talk It Over

  •                     Rubble is the trivial things that waste your time and energy and prevent you from accomplishing what God has called you to do. What is the rubble in your life?

  •                     How can you reduce negativity in your life that is keeping you discouraged?

  •                     On what abandoned goal do you need to refocus so that you can accomplish something God has called you to do?

River of health from the Throne of Grace,

Birthing His will, healing by His word

His Word that is spirit and is life,

Heralding and reining in health;

Flushing out all sickness and disease.

It is life-giving and life-changing
Life- restoring, rejuvenating,
Invigorating, illuminating,
Hope-rekindling, very dynamic,
Giving glory and honour to God.

Healing Stream, demonstrating His love
Razor-sharp, piercing and recharging,
Confirming the New Covenant
Revealing the better promises
Penetrating and transforming,

Medicine to body, soul and spirit;
Medication from meditation
Confirming that our God does not change
Affirming that Jesus remains the same,
Yesterday, today and forever. Amen.

I shall dwell on the powerful, dynamic, living, razor-sharp word of God. Nothing and no one is impervious from God’s word.
Jesus said ‘The Words that I have spoken to you they are and spirit and life.’ His word is medicine to one’s whole body.Pov4:22
Healing is the bread of the Children of God. God is not against circular medicine but we need to depend more on the word of God than any other methods. We would be short-hanging ourselves if we abandon our covenant of healing and go beggarly and poorly.
Being built up in faith to be able to depend on the word of God does not come overnight. We need to trust Him to heal us of colds and headaches before we can believe Him for life threatening situations. Faith comes by haring and hearing by the word of God. As we keep internalising the word of God and exposing ourselves to the healing scriptures we will be energised and revived to receive our healing.
We also need to know the different methods we can receive our healing and not put God in a box. Ours is to pray and His is to heal us the way He desires. Healing can be immediate or through gradual recovering. We must be prepared for this. Healing can also come through obeying some seemingly instructions from the Spirit of God. We must ready for this. Also certain problems may require prayer and fasting. (Matt.17:21)

Blunderers Can Bounce Back ( Fenny West)

blunderers can bounce back

Blunderers can bounce back
Regardless of great fall
Despite hitting the rocks
And it seems so hopeless.
The answer is the cross
The way out is Jesus
Who forgives and restores
He did it for Peter
He can do it for you.

 You too Can Bounce Back.

 

Thought he was a champion
Thrice he denied the Lord
Could not believe he did
Nearly wept his heart out
He thought it was all over
Jesus came and restored
Gave him new lease of life
He accepted forgiveness
And put the past behind
The Day of Pentecost
Revealed a New Peter.

 

Preached a fiery message

 Bold and brave for his Lord
Flowing with the anointing
Thousands came to the Lord
He was unstoppable
And became a leader
Shadow enough to heal
Had no silver or gold
But what he had he gave.

The Lord Shall Arise

the Lord shall rise3

Despite the economic downturn,
know that you belong to the Kingdom of God.
God is with you, in you and for you.
No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.

 

See the present darkness as opportunity
for the light of God to shine through you.
If you seek Him and you will find Him
if you seek Him with all your heart.

Jesus said” In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.” John16:33
Isaiah 60: The Gentiles Bless Zion
1 Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.
2 For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.
28 You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways.
29 When they cast you down, and you say, ‘Exaltation will come!’

Another translation puts it this way:
“When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up…” Job22:29 KJV

lifting
