Stand up and Stand Strong ( By Fenny West)

Stand up and Stand Strong

Stand up and Stand Strong
No matter how you have been wronged
Stand up and stand firm
Know you are no longer condemned.

Know who are and Whose you are
Know what you have and where you are
You are more than a conqueror
You are a champion, a victor.

Refuse any thoughts contrary to the Word
You are born of God, born of the Word
No weapon formed against you shall prosper
Whatever you lay your hands to do shall prosper.

Stand strong as a soldier of Christ
Know that you are complete in Christ.
Those that with you are more than those against you.
If God be for you, who can be against you?

See the walls of Jericho fallen before you
And its kings and mighty men I have given to you.
Go in at once and possess your possession.
Speak, command stand firm and obtain your confession.

Stand strong, no matter how hard-pressed.
You are unbelievable; you will not be crushed.
Greater is He that is in you, than he that’s in the world.
You are a winner and have overcome the world.

 

The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints —EPh6:10-18

Galatians 5: Christian Liberty
1 Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.

9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.” Josh1:9

4 You are of God, little children, and have overcome them, because He who is in you is greater than he who is in the world. 1John4:4

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

7       For as he thinks in his heart, so is he….

Prov23:7

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God. Ro12:2

23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind,24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

Eph4:23

13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Phil4:13

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. Ro8:28

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. Ro8:37-39

“With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Matt19:26

“Have faith in God.23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.

Mark11:22-24

Quote of the Day: when you buy the lies of Satan You will Disobey God

When you believe Satan’s lies, you will disobey God.

adam and Eve

God made Man in His Own Image

6 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”

27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

28 Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” Gen1:26-28

Adam was so intelligent that he named all the animals

19 Out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name.

20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. Gen2:19-20

God wanted man to be obedient as to eat of the best of the Land- te Garden of Eden

Life in God’s Garden

8 The LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden, and there He put the man whom He had formed

.9 And out of the ground the LORD God made every tree grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food. The tree of life was also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.

 Satan then came and deceived Man to believe a lie that god was withholding what man wanted from him- to be like God. Remember, God created man like Himself- in His own image.

The Temptation and Fall of Man

1 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’?”

2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We may eat the fruit of the trees of the garden;

3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God has said, ‘You shall not eat it, nor shall you touch it, lest you die.’ ”

4 Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will not surely die.

5 For God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”

6 So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.

7 Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together and made themselves coverings.

Satan deceive man and he  fell

Although man was still physically alive after the fall, he became spiritually dead- hence the fear, hiding from god and escaped.

Satan had stolen man’s dominion from him. Little wonder when Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness he boasted:’io had been delivered to me. Who did? Our first parents!

3 And the devil said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, command this stone to become bread.”

4 But Jesus answered him, saying,

“It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.’

5 Then the devil, taking Him up on a high mountain, showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.

6 And the devil said to Him, “All this authority I will give You, and their glory; for this has been delivered to me, and I give it to whomever I wish.

Ever wondered why you don’t feel like praying or going to Church when you have disobeyed God? The same reason why Adam and Eve ran from God when they heard his voice.

When you buy the lie of Satan, you will disobey God and forfeit your inheritance to Satan.

Satan is a liar and a Father of it. He uses thesame tactics today as he did then: ‘Deceive them to disinherit them.’ This is his motto.

We thank God for Jesus who came and clinched back our dominion. Col2:15 Dominion lost was regained when Jesu srose from the dead on the third day. And were were crucified with Him and raised together with Him and now seated with Him in heavenly places. That is the truth of the gospel. ( Eph2:1,6)

If you know Jesus as your personal Saviour, the old has gone and the new has come. You are a New Creeature in Christ. You are the redeemed of the Lord- redeemed from the power and manacles of satan and his cohorts. You are the righteousnes of God in Christ Jesus; an overcomer, set free for freedom. God is your Father and you are his child. No weapon fasshioned against you will prosper. All things will work together for you because youlove God and yuare the called according to His purpose.

Refuse to believe the lie of the enemy. If God be for youwho can be against you. You are blessed with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. Youhave been chosen by God to be His trophy, His Ambassador, instrument of peace and reconciliation, His voice, His hands and feet, part of the royal priesthood, the holy nation, a tree of righteousness, a planting of the Lord, to radiate His glory, honour and praise here on earth.

Commit yourself therefore to obey the Lord in all matters because Goid has your best interest at heart. God is not trying to heide your blessin from you. He has hidden it for you. all youneed to do is seek His face and when you do you will find His grace which is sufficient for you to access your divine inheritance. He will open the eyes of your spirital understanding to know the hope of yor calling and your glorious inheriatance in Christ. and when you do youwillwalk in victory and not defeat. youwill be above and not under. God will fight your battles and youwill eat the best of the Land. Yes reagrdless of the canaanites that are in yor promised land, the land is still yours. God has given it to you. and every placetat the sloe of your feet shall tread belongs to you.

Do not let the enemy short-change you.

When you buy Satan’s lies

You disobey God.

and this is not wise.

Stan on the Word.

Doubt your doubts

and believe your beliefs

Do not doubt in public

what you heard from God in yor closet.

God’s ways are higher than our ways

His thoughts are higher than His thoughts.

so let us reamain in the narrow way

which leads to eternal life.

‘I thought you said, ‘Quote of the day.’

Well that was what I thought it would be but it has turned out to be a sermon.  It is good to go with the flow. That is obedience to God as we have just heard. I trust you have been blessed.

Life With No Purpose

Life with no purpose

Is ship with no rudder

Bird without a wing

Land lying fallow

Piano with no player

House with no tenants

Legs without a stride

Motion with no meaning

Action with no direction

Rhyme with no reason

Journey with no destination.

O Lord, open my eyes

To see beyond the seen

To rise above my sighs

Take hold of that big dream

That you foreordained for me.
