Goliath, the Giant of Gath(4) { by Fenny West}

Goliath, the Giant of Gath 

Met his match in little David, 

Who showed, “One with God is majority.” 

Goliath bit the dust,

no matter how macho. 

Similarly, Jesus  won the victory

When He triumphed through the cross. 

One with Jesus is still majority. 

Because He rose from the dead,

Giving us New Life and authority.

50 So David prevailed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone, and struck the Philistine and killed him. But there was no sword in the hand of David.

51 Therefore David ran and stood over the Philistine, took his sword and drew it out of its sheath and killed him, and cut off his head with it. And when the Philistines saw that their champion was dead, they fled.

1Sam17:50-51

15 Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.

Col2:15

Goliath, the Giant of Gath (3){by Fenny West)

Goliath, the Giant of Gath 

will manipulate you if allow him.

He will play mind games with you, 

Saying, “Has God said?” 

And when you listen and obey him, 

he pulls a fast one, pulls the rug out

from beneath your feet

he specialises in telling lies 

He thrives on causing you to doubt God. 

Genesis 3: The Temptation and Fall of Man

Now the serpent was more cunning than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said to the woman, “Has God indeed said, ‘You shall not eat of every tree of the garden’?”

44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

John8:44

Goliath, the Giant of Gath (2) {by Fenny West}

Goliath, the Giant of Gath 

Is like Lucifer, Satan, your adversary.

He will often pretend he does not exist 

to deceive you and steal your victory. 

But you must stand your ground, be on your guard, 

Be on the alert and give him no room. 

Be not ignorant of his stratagems,ploys, wiles and schemes. 

 

27 nor give place to the devil.Eph4:27

11 lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2Cor 2:11

Summon Your power, O Lord ( By Fenny West)

Summon Your Power, O Lord

Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength
as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord
Part Your heavens and come down
Touch the mountains and let them smoke, O Lord, O Lord

Flash Your lightening, O Lord
Confuse all Your enemies
Shoot Your arrows, O Lord
And scatter, scatter, scatter every foe
Summon Your power, O Lord
Show us Your strength as You have done before, O Lord, O Lord

Let a fire go before You
And burn up all  Your enemies, O Lord, O Lord
Reach down the mighty waters
Deliver those called by Your name, O Lord
O, Lord
May the zeal of the Lord of hosts
Bring this to pass to His glory, O Lord, O Lord

 

Psalms 68: The Glory of God in His Goodness to Israel To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David. A Song.

1      Let God arise, Let His enemies be scattered; Let those also who hate Him flee before Him.

2      As smoke is driven away, So drive them away; As wax melts before the fire, So let the wicked perish at the presence of God.

3      But let the righteous be glad; Let them rejoice before God; Yes, let them rejoice exceedingly.

4              Sing to God, sing praises to His name; Extol Him who rides on the clouds, By His name YAH, And rejoice before Him.

17   The chariots of God are twenty thousand, Even thousands of thousands; The Lord is among them as in Sinai, in the Holy Place.

18   You have ascended on high, You have led captivity captive; You have received gifts among men, Even from the rebellious, That the LORD God might dwell there.

19   Blessed be the Lord, Who daily loads us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah

20   Our God is the God of salvation; And to GOD the Lord belong escapes from death.

21   But God will wound the head of His enemies, The hairy scalp of the one who still goes on in his trespasses.

Ps68:1-4,17-21

Summon your power, God; show us your strength, our God, as you have done before.

Keeping Satan Check- Prevails Prayers(3) {by Fenny West}

Keeping Satan Check- Prevails Prayers(3)

 

 

Father, I thank You for the authority of the Believer, in the Name of Jesus. 
Thank You that the weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds and casting down every imagination that exalts itself against the revealed will of God. 
I bind every principality and power and their evil machinations, ploys and strategies. No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises against me in judgement, I show to be in the wrong. When the enemy comes like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord will raise a standard against him. 
Thank you, Father, that I have overcome them by the precious blood of Jesus. The blood speaks better than the blood of bulls and goats. I overcome them by the Word of my testimony. Every test that comes my way brings a testimony. Every trial brings a triumph, and every adversity brings Prosperity.
Thank You, Father, that I am the head and not the tail. I shall prevail in every situation I face because greater is He that is in me than he that is this world. God is my refuge and my strength and my ever-present help. He fights for me. His angels are on assignment on my behalf. There are more with me than are against me. God is working everything together for my good. I am the apple of His eyes, His treasured possession. Whoever touches me, touches Him. I am covered, protected, enveloped by his love. My life is hidden in Christ in God. Thanks be to God, who always causes me to triumph. Through my God, I shall do valiantly. It is He who treads down my enemies. They are under my feet. He makes a banquet for me in the presence of my enemies. He goes before me to make every crooked place straight. Every fiery experience I encounter will only refine me to be better. It will burn off every dross and unveil the gold in me. For my light affliction, which is but for a moment, works a far more exceeding weight of glory for me.

This is why I may be hard-pressed, but I am not crushed, persecuted not abandoned. He said,” I will never leave you nor forsake you until the end.” And when I am perplexed I need not be in despair because I know who I serve and whom I have believed. He is good all the time. I do not look at the things which are seen, but the things which are unseen, knowing that the things which are seen are temporary, but that which is not seen is eternal. Therefore I do not lose heart on any account and can call those things which be not as though they were. I see with the eyes of Faith. I see through the eyes of God. I am more than a conqueror. The Kingdom of God suffers violence but the violent take it by force. I tread down serpents and scorpions wherever they rear their heads. Thanks be to God who always causes me to triumph. I am a Victor, a winner, able only and not below. I put satan and his cohorts in check. I give them no room. I am not ignorant of their ploys and evil intents. I expose them for what they are with the Word of God, the light of God. I use the whole armour of God – my helmet of salvation, the shield of faith, the belt of truth, shoes of the Gospel, the breastplate of righteousness and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. 
The Lord is My light and my salvation and my strength. Of whom shall I fear. The Lord is the stronghold of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid. Those who come against me in one way will flee in seven ways. I humble myself under the mighty hand of God and I resist the enemy and he flees. 
Thank You, Lord, for giving me authority over all the power of the enemy. I cast out Demons, wherever and whenever and however they show up. 
I have victory in the Name of Jesus. He disarmed principalities and powers and made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them through the cross. That victory is mine. I enforce that victory in my life in every area-family, businesses, relationships, ministry, children, country, and in all my involvement, in Jesus’ Name. Amen, 

Jesus is Lord! 

Throw Your Best Shot ( by Fenny West)

Throw Your Best Shot

Throw Your Best Shot

Let it be very hot

It will not hurt

It’ll come to nought.

Death, where is your sting?

The furnace was heated

Seven times hotter than usual

God became excited and galvanised

And he unleashed the supernatural

Those bound were loosed by the fire

Designed to be their grave

Designed to be their nightmare

Yes, it gave God the opportunity

to glorify His Name

God gave them untold victory

And He remains ever the same.

Trust in Him today

As the enemy throws his best shot.

Do not cow or throw in the towel

It will all come to nought

And you will soar and tower like an eagle.

…And the Wind Blew Me ( by Fenny West)

And the Wind Blew Me

 1refuge refuge8 fight the good fight bounties and Blessings helper uphill don't quit2 faith in God road6 wave peace d

And the wind blew me

To the Land of Saints and Scholars.

It was a strange get away

Allowed by the Alpha and Omega.

 

The foe surely meant it for evil

But the Most High meant it for good.

There, I was taught to tread down the devil

And use his treats and tricks for food.

 

There, I was taught lots of lessons

On how to soar with wings as an eagle.

Baptism in fire was on street called Blessington.

But God, by His might kept me. It was a miracle.

 

Refined through storms and fire

He let me come forth as gold

Radiating His glory despite the mire

He was my warmth in the cold.

 

So when the wind blows you

And God is in you, for you and with you

Know that He’s able, reliable,

merciful, powerful , faithful and true.

And will surely, I say surely, bring you through.

 

And this wind could be:

Financial adverse wind

Health hazard wind

Stagnation or retrogression wind

Marriage breakage wind

Singleness wind

Single parent wind

Litigation wind

Immigration or nationality wind

Racism or opposition wind

Family feud wind

Indebtedness wind

Ministerial adverse wind

Foes and fiends’ wind

Fair weather friends

Burglary or infirmity wind

Or whatever wind you may face,

Jesus is Lord over them all.

 

Salvation belongs to the Lord.

If God be for you,

 who can be against you?

Thanks be to God

who always causes us to triumph.

Greater is He that is in you

than he that is in this world.

Through our God we shall do valiantly.

He prepares a table for me

 in the presence of my enemies.

No weapon fashioned against me shall prosper.

When the enemy comes like a flood

The Spirit of God will raise a standard against him.

Those who come in one way will flee in seven ways.

There are more with me that are against me.

Overcoming Temptation ( by Charles Spurgeon)

spurgeon 2 joseph's coat adam and Eve pointing finger  anger feuding couple2

Overcoming Temptation

By Charles H. Spurgeon

“And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him for a season” (Luke 4:13).
Beloved friends, we have very much to learn from our Lord’s temptation. He was tempted in all points, like as we are. If you will study the temptation of Christ, you will not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. If you see how He worsted the enemy, you will learn what weapons to use against your great adversary. If you see how our Lord conquers throughout the whole battle, you will learn that, as you keep close to Him, you will be more than a conqueror through Him that loved you.
From our Lord’s temptation we learn, especially, to pray, “Lead us not into temptation.” Let us never mistake the meaning of that petition! We are to pray that we may not be tempted, for we are poor flesh and blood and very frail. It is for us to cry to God, “Lead us not into temptation.” But we also learn a great deal from the close of our Lord’s great threefold trial. We find Him, afterwards, peaceful – ministered unto by angels – and rejoicing. That should teach us to pray, “But, if we must be tempted, deliver us from the evil,” or, as some render it, and very correctly, too, “Deliver us from the Evil One.” First, we pray that we may not be tempted at all and then, as a supplement to that prayer, yielding the whole matter to Divine wisdom, “If it is necessary for our manhood, for our growth in grace, for the verification of our graces and for God’s glory, that we should be tempted, Lord, deliver us from the evil, and especially deliver us from the impersonation of evil, the Evil One!”
It may be a long time, when you are suffering from his attacks, before he will hold his hand, for he will try all that he possibly can to lead you into evil and to destroy the grace that is in you. Still, he does come to an end with his temptations sooner than he desires, for, as God has said to the mighty sea, “Until this time shall you come, but no further; and here shall your proud waves be stayed” (Job 38:11) – and so says He to the devil. When He permitted Satan to try the graces of Job and to prove his sincerity, He let him go just so far, but no farther. And when he asked for a further stretch of power, still there was a limit. There is always a limit to Satan’s power and when he reaches that point, he will be pulled up short – he can do no more. You are never so in the hands of Satan as to be out of the hands of God. You are never so tempted, if you are a believer, that there is not a way of escape for you!
“When the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from Him.” When the Lord had foiled him at every point – had met every temptation with a text of Holy Scripture and had proved His own determination to hold fast His integrity and not let it go – it was not till then that the enemy departed. O brothers and sisters, if you can hold out, if you can stand against this and then against that; if you are protected against frowns and protected against flatteries; if you are protected against prosperity and against adversity; if you are protected against sly insinuations and open attacks – when you have won the day, as by God’s grace you will do, even as your Master did, then the enemy will depart from you!
He leaves God’s people very quickly when he sees that they are sustained by superior grace. He hopes to catch them when grace is at a low ebb. If he can come upon them when faith is very weak, when hope’s eyes are dim, when love has grown cold – then he thinks that he will make an easy capture. But when we are filled with the Spirit as the Master was, (God grant that we may be), he looks us up and down and he presently leaves. Like an old pirate who hangs about on the lookout for merchant vessels, but if he meets with ships that have plenty of guns on board and hardy hands to give him a warm reception, he goes after some other craft not quite so well able to resist his assaults. O brothers and sisters, be not merely Christians, only barely Christians, with just enough grace to let you see your imperfections, but pray to God to give you mighty grace, that you may “be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10), so that, after the devil has tested you and found that the Lord is with you, that God dwells in you, then you may expect that, as it was with your Master, so it will be with you – Satan will leave you.
Cast Your Burden upon the Lord
Again, I doubt not that Satan leaves us – no, I know that he does – when the Lord says to him what He said in the wilderness, “Get you hence, Satan.” And He does say that when He sees one of His poor children dragged about, tortured, wounded, bleeding. The old Hell-dog knows his Master and he flies at once. This voice of God will come when the Lord sees that we cast ourselves wholly upon Him.
Let me remind you of a story of a gentleman who, riding along in his coach, saw a packman carrying a heavy pack, and asked him if he would like a ride. “Yes, and thank you, sir.” But he kept his pack on his back while riding. “Oh,” said the friend, “why do you not take your pack off and put it down in front?” “Why, sir,” he said, “it is so kind of you to give me a ride that I do not like to impose upon your good nature, and I thought that I would carry the pack myself!” “Well,” said the other, “but, you see, it makes no difference to me whether you carry it or do not carry it – I have to carry you and your pack – so you had better unstrap it and put it down in front.”
So, friend, when you cast your burden upon God, unstrap it! Why should you bear it yourself when God is prepared to bear it? Beloved, there are times when we forget that, but when we can come and absolutely yield ourselves right up, saying, “Lord, here I am, tempted, poor and weak. But I come and rest in You. I know not what to ask at Your hands, but Your servant has said, ‘Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He shall sustain you: He shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.’ I lie at Your feet, my Lord. Here I am, here would I be. Do with me as seems good in Your sight – only deal in tender mercy with Your servant.” Then will the Lord rebuke the enemy! The waves of the sea shall be still and there shall be a great calm.
Watch and Pray
I close by reminding you of the limitation of our rest. Satan left Christ “for a season,” or until a fit occasion.
Dear friends, if we have peace and quietness, and are not tempted, do not let us become self-secure. The devil will come to us, again, at a fit opportunity. And when will that be? There are a great many fit opportunities with you and with me. One is when we have nothing to do. You know Dr. Watts’ lines – “Satan finds some mischief still, for idle hands to do.”
He will come and attack us when we are alone. I mean, when we are sad and lonely, and are sitting still, and moping by ourselves.
But Satan also finds a very fit occasion when we are in company, especially when it is very mixed company – a company of persons, perhaps, who are superior to ourselves in education and in station – but who do not fear God. We may easily be overawed and led astray by them. Satan will come then.
I have known him frequently come and find an occasion against the children of God when we are sick and ill, the old coward! He knows that we would not mind him when we are in good health, but sometimes when we are down in the dumps through sickness and pain – then it is that he begins to tempt us to despair.
So will he do with us when we are very poor. When a man has had a great loss in business, down comes Satan and insinuates, “Is this how God treats His children? God’s people are no better off than other people.”
Then, if we are getting on in the world, he turns it the other way, and he says, “Does Job fear God for nothing? He gets on by his religion.” You cannot please the devil and you need not want to please him! He can make a temptation for you out of anything!
I am going to say something that will surprise you. One time of great temptation is when we are very spiritual. As to myself, I have never been in such supreme danger as when I have led some holy meeting with sacred fervor and have felt carried away with delight in God. You know that it is easy to be on the Mount of Transfiguration and then to meet Satan at the foot, as our Lord did when He came down from that hill.
Another time of temptation is when we have already done wrong. “Now he begins to slip,” says Satan. “I saw him trip. Now I will have him down!” Oh, for speedy repentance and an earnest flight to Christ whenever there has been a grave fault, yes, and before the grave fault comes, that we may be preserved from falling!
And Satan finds a good occasion for tempting us when we have not sinned. After we have been tempted and we have won the day and stood fast, then he comes and says, “Now, that was well done on your part, you are a splendid saint!” And he who thinks himself a splendid saint is next door to a shameful sinner, depend upon it! And Satan soon gets the advantage over him.
He will tempt you when you have obtained some blessing that you have been thinking was such a great gift. Just as you have secured the thing that you are seeking, then comes a temptation – to which all I have to say is this – “Watch.”
“What I say unto you, I say unto all,” said Christ, “Watch. Watch and pray, that you enter not into temptation” (Matt. 26:41). And by the conflict and the victory of your Master, go into the conflict bravely and expect to conquer by faith in Him, even as He overcame!
Condensed from the sermon, “Satan Departing, Angels Ministering.”
