Words Woo or Wound ( by Fenny West)

Words Woo or Wound

 War or Warm and Wow
With your words you can give life
And with your words you can take life
With your words you can advance
And with your words you can cause a hindrance

With your words you can negate, char

With your words you can upgrade or degrade

Life and death are in the power of your words
Choose to speak the right words that will make, not mar

When angry, be wise. Choose to be dumb.
Else poison will ooze out of your mouth and maim or kill
What was built over 10 years can be destroyed in 10 seconds.
He who has no control over his lips is like a city without walls.
Keep corruption and profanity out of your lips.

 

 

Counter any wrong thing people say about you. No enchantment or divination against you shall prosper. No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper. Silence every lying tongue that is contrary to the revealed will of God.
There is therefore now, no more Condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set us free from the law of sin and death. You have passed from death to life. CHRIST IS YOUR LIFE. CHRIST is a place and in that place, –in His presence- is life forever. In His presence there is no sickness or disease. In His presence is fullness of joy and life forever.
The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree. Those who are planted in the house of the Lord shall flourish in the courts of our God. They will bring forth fruit even in their old age. They will be fat and Flourishing, (fresh and green), proclaiming: “The Lord is upright. There is no unrighteousness in Him. Their faith is continually made effective because they acknowledge the good things in them. They know who they are in Christ, what they have in Christ and whose they are in Christ. Christ in them is their hope of glory. They decree a thing and it stands. They lay up gold like dust. All things are theirs. They are heirs of God and joint-heirs with Christ. As He is, so they are. Principalities and powers are under their feet. 

Keep your mouth free of perversity; keep corrupt talk far from your lips. New Living Translation Avoid all perverse talk; stay away from …

24   Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you. Prov4:24KJV

12   Who is the man who desires life, And loves many days, that he may see good?

13   Keep your tongue from evil, And your lips from speaking deceit.

Ps34:12-13
Proverbs 18:21 puts it this way: “The tongue has the power of life and death.” The stakes are high. Your words can either speak life, or your words can speak death. Our tongues can build others up, or they can tear them down.

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

 Prov18:21

 

2      For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.

3      Indeed, we put bits in horses’ mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their whole body.

4      Look also at ships: although they are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they are turned by a very small rudder wherever the pilot desires.

5      Even so the tongue is a little member and boasts great things. See how great a forest a little fire kindles!

6      And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among our members that it defiles the whole body, and sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire by hell.

7      For every kind of beast and bird, of reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by mankind.

8      But no man can tame the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.

9      With it we bless our God and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in the similitude of God.

10   Out of the same mouth proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not to be so.

11   Does a spring send forth fresh water and bitter from the same opening? James3:2-11

 The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. … but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God’s likeness.
James3:

Train your tongue to say what God said
Train your tongue to take sides with God
When you do, your life will go from glory to glory, and from strength to strength.

5      Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

6              So we may boldly say: ” The LORD is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?”

You will have what you say:

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.

Jabez’s mother said the wrong thing in pain, anguish and depression and she, though dead, affected, constrained, contained, strangulated and hindered Jabez wherever he went until he realised it and broke the curse with what he said in prayer:

9      Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.”

10   And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

1Chro4:9-10

He was like a time-bomb wherever he went. Disaster followed him here and there. People avoided him for this reason. His name was a pain and caused pain – not to him but to anyone that dared associate with him.  One day he could take it no longer and broke the curse with his prayer. You can do the same.

Hannah broke the curse of barrenness with her prayers. Though words were hardly heard, we know what she prayed for and how she praised when the answer came:

15   But Hannah answered and said, “No, my lord, I am a woman of sorrowful spirit. I have drunk neither wine nor intoxicating drink, but have poured out my soul before the LORD.

16   Do not consider your maidservant a wicked woman, for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief I have spoken until now.”

17   Then Eli answered and said, “Go in peace, and the God of Israel grant your petition which you have asked of Him.”

18   And she said, “Let your maidservant find favor in your sight.” So the woman went her way and ate, and her face was no longer sad.

1Sam1:15-18

1 Samuel 2: Hannah’s Prayer

1      And Hannah prayed and said: ” My heart rejoices in the LORD; My horn is exalted in the LORD. I smile at my enemies, Because I rejoice in Your salvation.

2      ” No one is holy like the LORD, For there is none besides You, Nor is there any rock like our God.

3      ” Talk no more so very proudly; Let no arrogance come from your mouth, For the LORD is the God of knowledge; And by Him actions are weighed.

4      ” The bows of the mighty men are broken, And those who stumbled are girded with strength.

5      Those who were full have hired themselves out for bread, And the hungry have ceased to hunger. Even the barren has borne seven, And she who has many children has become feeble.

6      ” The LORD kills and makes alive; He brings down to the grave and brings up.

7      The LORD makes poor and makes rich; He brings low and lifts up.

8      He raises the poor from the dust And lifts the beggar from the ash heap, To set them among princes And make them inherit the throne of glory. ” For the pillars of the earth are the LORD’s, And He has set the world upon them.

9      He will guard the feet of His saints, But the wicked shall be silent in darkness. ” For by strength no man shall prevail.

10           The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken in pieces; From heaven He will thunder against them. The LORD will judge the ends of the earth. ” He will give strength to His king, And exalt the horn of His anointed.

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk ( by Fenny West)

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk

Get off the Precipice in Your Talk
Stay in the straight and narrow
Talk the walk and walk the talk.
Talk what you see in the mirror.

Just say what God has said of you.
Act as though it is true because it is.
God is not a man to deceive you.
He knows what He had made you.
He knows what He had put in you.

Give Him thanks for what He made you
Give Him praise for His infinite wisdom.
Resolve to make manifest His will
Resolve to give Him glory and honour
Because the Master made you a Masterpiece,

 His crowning glory, and Apple of His eyes.

19   Is the man who deceives his neighbor, And says, “I was only joking!”

Matt12:37 37       For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
Mark11:23 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.

Watch Your Words ( by Fenny West)

 

Watch Your Words

Our words make or mar, can kill or give life; can refresh, inspire or depressor even maim.

 

Num13: 27-33 The speaking of doubt not only caused fear and depression but majority a people started weeping and lost the promised land died in the wilderness.

27   Then they told him, and said: “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.

29   The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.

“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.”

Num13:27-29,32-33

 

Numbers 14: Israel Refuses to Enter Canaan

1     So all the congregation lifted up their voices and cried, and the people wept that night.

2     And all the children of Israel complained against Moses and Aaron, and the whole congregation said to them, “If only we had died in the land of Egypt! Or if only we had died in this wilderness!

3     Why has the LORD brought us to this land to fall by the sword, that our wives and children should become victims? Would it not be better for us to return to Egypt?”

4     So they said to one another, “Let us select a leader and return to Egypt.”

5     Then Moses and Aaron fell on their faces before all the assembly of the congregation of the children of Israel.

On the other hand, Joshua and Caleb were inspirational and full of faith and their faith opened the door for them to enter the Promised land.

 

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.”

Num13:30

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.”

Num14:6-9

This is how we should be speaking when we are faced with giants or Goliaths and “walls of Jericho”, infernos and lions dens against our family, purpose, finances etc.

God will be proud of us and we will be putting springs in our steps and encouraging angels on our assignment.

14   Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?

Heb1:14

Caleb continued in his faith-filled talk even after 40 years had elapsed since he received a promise that was still in abeyance. He reminded Joshua when they were about sharing the Promised Land:

 

You know the word which the LORD said to Moses the man of God concerning you and me in Kadesh Barnea.

7     I was forty years old when Moses the servant of the LORD sent me from Kadesh Barnea to spy out the land, and I brought back word to him as it was in my heart.

8     Nevertheless my brethren who went up with me made the heart of the people melt, but I wholly followed the LORD my God.

9     So Moses swore on that day, saying, ‘Surely the land where your foot has trodden shall be your inheritance and your children’s forever, because you have wholly followed the LORD my God.’

10   And now, behold, the LORD has kept me alive, as He said, these forty-five years, ever since the LORD spoke this word to Moses while Israel wandered in the wilderness; and now, here I am this day, eighty-five years old.

11   As yet I am as strong this day as on the day that Moses sent me; just as my strength was then, so now is my strength for war, both for going out and for coming in.

12   Now therefore, give me this mountain of which the LORD spoke in that day; for you heard in that day how the Anakim were there, and that the cities were great and fortified. It may be that the LORD will be with me, and I shall be able to drive them out as the LORD said.”

 

He kept a good record of what the Lord said to Moses and despite the death of Moses, would not let go and reminded Joshua using the record to buttress his case, and he was not denied. Notice that he was prepared to go for the mountain country and he affirmed that he was as strong as he was when the promise was made over 40 years ago. What an attitude and what an affirmation! That is the perspective we should have and the way we should be speaking, regardless of the odds we face. If God is for us, who can be against us?

 

 

 

Little wonder, the Word clearly states:

21            Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof…

So we need to watch what we speak or hear or even what we read. Your word shape your future; they stir the course of your life.

The speech of Mordecai stirred Esther to rise up in faith and fulfil her destiny and saved her nation in diaspora.

13   Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king’s house, more than all the Jews.

14   For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father’s house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

 

Esther’s faith-filled words purred her to delivered, with God on her side.

16   Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish. Esther 4:16

The faith filled words of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego sustained them and moved God on their behalf such that even though they were thrown into the fiery furnace that had been heated seven times hotter than usual, they were set free by the fire and they were unharmed. Their clothes did not smell of smoke and God Himself manifested in the fire and glorified His Name.

 

16   Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter.

17   If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

18   But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up. Dan3:16-18

This testimony triggered other testimonies as the pagan king began to praise the living God, and rescinded his decree and promoted their God and promoted those who were falsely accused.

Blessed be the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, who hath sent his angel, and delivered his servants that trusted in him, and have changed the king’s word, and yielded their bodies, that they might not serve nor worship any god, except their own God.

29   Therefore I make a decree, That every people, nation, and language, which speak any thing amiss against the God of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, shall be cut in pieces, and their houses shall be made a dunghill: because there is no other God that can deliver after this sort.

30   Then the king promoted Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego, in the province of Babylon.

Dan3:28-30

 

When the disciples were arrested for preaching the gospel in Acts4, their speech emboldened others, “Should we obey God or man?” This made their persecutors sit up and take notice that they had been with Jesus.

18   And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus.

19   But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye.

20            For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard

Acts4:18-20

Later, when they prayed the Word with passion Boldness and faith, the house they were in shook and they were filled with the Holy Ghost.

21   So when they had further threatened them, they let them go, finding nothing how they might punish them, because of the people: for all men glorified God for that which was done.

22   For the man was above forty years old, on whom this miracle of healing was shewed.

23   And being let go, they went to their own company, and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.

24   And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord, and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

25   Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?

26   The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ.

27   For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,

28   For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.

29   And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,

30   By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus.

31   And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.

Acts4:21-31

Paul and Silas were badly beaten, battered and bled and their hands and feet were in chains. However, rather than complain, they encouraged themselves by praising and singing at mid-night. God so enjoyed their praise that He sent an earthquake that rocked the foundations of that prison to set them free. And their disposition after being set free resulted in the salvation of the whole household of the prison warden.

 

22   And the multitude rose up together against them: and the magistrates rent off their clothes, and commanded to beat them.

23   And when they had laid many stripes upon them, they cast them into prison, charging the jailer to keep them safely:

24   Who, having received such a charge, thrust them into the inner prison, and made their feet fast in the stocks.

25   And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

26   And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.

27   And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled.

28   But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here.

29   Then he called for a light, and sprang in, and came trembling, and fell down before Paul and Silas,

30   And brought them out, and said, Sirs, what must I do to be saved?

31   And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.

32   And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house.

33   And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway.

34            And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house. Acts.16:22-34

What you say and how you act (respond) or react can make or mar your future and that of others around you. See the picture God shows you in His word. Take sides with Him by affirming what He says, regardless of what you see or how you feel or what people say or what your adversary says or shows you and you will come back with the boon in your hands.
Speak words that will galvanise the angels assigned to you into action on your behalf. Think before you speak.

Ask yourself:

T– IS IT TRUE, i.e in line with the Word?, it may be factual and yet a lie.
H– is it healthy, will it make you sick or well?
I– is it inspirational or motivational? Is it an injustice?
N– is it noble or nonsensical? Will it affirm, negate or nullify the word? Is it necessary?
K–  is it kind; are you trying to off the light of another person to make yours shine?

Wage War with the Word ( by Fenny West)

Wage War with the Word

Waging war with the Word
Is the preserve and domain
of the New Creation;

he who is born again,

born from above,

born of the Spirit,

 born of the Word.


Waging war with the Word
is the inheritance of the chosen generation,

the royal priesthood, those who hail from Zion,

 those who are kings and priests of God.

Indeed, Where the Word of the king is,

 there is power-tremendous  power

, dynamic power, preponderant power,

 prevalent power, resurrection,

creative, and innovative power.

We speak the mind of God,

take sides with God.

 Our minds are renewed with the Word of God,

which is the will of God. 
We decree a thing and it stands.

We command and it comes into being.

 We do not consider lying vanities

 as to forsake our mercies.

 We speak the mysteries of God.

We do not come with the enticing words of man’s wisdom

 but with the demonstration of the spirit of life in Christ Jesus.

We demonstrate the spiritual power of God with the dynamic,

  living, operative and razor-sharp Word of God.

We know we wrestle not against flesh and blood

But against principalities and powers and wicked spirits.

That is why we wage war with the Word of God and the sword of the Spirit.

The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but have divine power to pull down strongholds, casting down every imagination that militates against the revealed will of God.

We wage war with words because as He is, so we are. We speak what we hear Him speak. Our words are not our own but His won and it will not return to Him empty. It will accomplish that which He pleases, prosper in the thing it has been sent to do.

We speak words of life, health, peace, love, prosperity, unity. And as we do the glory of the latter house surpasses the former and we go from glory to glory and from strength to strength.

Fight the Good Fight

18   This charge I commit to you, son Timothy, according to the prophecies previously made concerning you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 19      having faith and a good conscience, which some having rejected, concerning the faith have suffered shipwreck,

 1Tim1:18

12   Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, to which you were also called and have confessed the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

1Tim6:12

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

21   Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

Pro18:21

28            You will also declare a thing, And it will be established for you; So light will shine on your ways

29   When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

 Job22:29

With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have been made in God’s likeness. 10Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers and sisters, this should not be. 11Can both fresh water and salt water flow from the same spring? 12My brothers and sisters, can a fig tree bear olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Neither can a salt spring produce fresh water. James3:9-12

8     The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.”

 Isa40:8

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.

24   Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.

 Prov4:20-24

Word, Worries, Words

THE ANSWER TO YOUR WORRIES

‘Death and life are in the power of the tongue…’ Proverbs 18:21

Your words either work   for you or against you. The Bible says, ‘Death and life are in the power of   the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.’ The old saying,   ‘You’ll eat your words,’ is more than a meaningless cliche, it’s the truth!   Jeremiah the prophet writes, ‘Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your   word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart…’ (Jeremiah 15:16 NKJV).   The Psalmist writes, ‘They cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He   saved them out of their distresses (worries). He sent His word and healed   them…’ (Psalms 107:19-20 NKJV). God’s Word is the medicine that heals   worry. So what God has to say about the issue must be what you have to say   about it too, otherwise you’re contradicting Him and disconnecting yourself   from the source of all blessing. If you’re wise, you will surround yourself   with like-minded people who speak God’s Word into your life, and limit your   time with those who have no interest in it. If you want to grow the right   kind of fruit, you must have the right climate. And the words you speak (and   listen to) determine the climate of your life, the direction in which it   goes, and the results you get. There is no ‘secret’ to success. The Bible   says that when you learn to ‘meditate day and night’ in God’s Word, you will   ‘prosper in all [you do]’ (Psalms 1:1-3 NLT). So the answer to your worries   is in God’s Word!

Think and Talk God’s Thoughts

Think and Talk God’s Thoughts

To take you to the top

Foreordained for you

Before the world began

Before you were conceived.

 

God blessed you with

Every spiritual blessing

In heavenly places.

He chose you

as His treasured possession;

As His trophy and inheritance.

He loves you with an everlasting love.

As high as the heavens are above the earth,

So great is His love towards you.

And as far as the East is from the West

So far has He removed your transgression from You.

He forgave you of all your sins,

He healed you of all you diseases,

Redeemed your life from destruction,

Crowned you with love and compassion,

Satisfies your mouth with good things,

So that your youth is renewed as the eagle’s.

He daily loads you with benefits to enjoy.

No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper.

Greater is He that in you than he that is in this world.

Because you are in Christ,

 the old has gone and the New has come.

Your life is hidden in Christ in God.

God is your light and your salvation

Of whom shall you fear?

He has not given you a spirit of fear

 but that of Love power and sound mind.

God is the strength of your life.

He has called you to be the head and not the tail.

As you obey Him fully,

whatever you lay your hands to do

 will prosper to the glory of God.

When you go through the river

You will not drown.

When you go through the fire,

the flame will not kindle upon you.

Like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego,

you will come out shining like gold

and radiating the glory of the Lord.

When the world throws you into the lion’s,

God will send His angel to protect you.

Like the three Hebrew children,

Your opposition will bring promotion.

Your rejection will bring your celebration.

You will not go under for going over.

The favour of God will be upon you

Like Nehemiah and Joseph.

Your vision shall be accomplished

Regardless of the opposition

And the tribulation that you go through.

You may laugh last but you will laugh best.

If God is for you

No one can be against you.

Neither death nor life

Nor principalities nor powers

Nor height nor depth

Nor things present nor things to come

Nor any other created thing shall

Be able to separate you

From the love of God which is in Christ Jesus.

Nay in all these things

You are more than a conqueror.

Thanks be to God who always causes you to triumph.

God is for you, with you and in you.

Your light afflictions are working for you

An exceeding weight of eternal glory.

You may be hard-pressed

but you will not be crushed.

You may the perplexed but

you need not be in despair.

You may be persecuted

But your are not abandoned;

Knocked down but not knocked out.

God will fight for you and your will hold your peace.

Because the battle is not yours but His.

You are the redeemed of the Lord;

Redeemed from the curse of the Law.

You are the righteousness in Christ Jesus.

Jesus has been made onto you:

  wisdom, redemption,

sanctification and righteousness.

God has given you beauty for ashes,

 the oil of joy  in place of mourning

the garment of praised

in place of the spirit of heaviness

that you may be a tree of righteousness

the planting of the Lord, that He might be glorified.

If you are barren, sing, O barren.

Enlarge the place of your dwelling

stretch out, spare not.

Lengthen your cords and strengthen your stakes.

For more shall be the children

of the desolate than the married wife.

Have you dug wells that gave been blocked again and again?

Keep digging and the Lord will make room for you, like Isaac.

Has your dream brought contention and rejection and opposition?

Dream again like Joseph. Your dream which came from the Lord shall come true.

They may forcibly take your coat or steal your coat

But they cannot steal your anointing.

Let them make you a scapegoat.

It will only assuage your anointing.

God will make your feet like the hind’s, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

 

11   For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.

12   Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.

13   And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.Jer29:11-13

 

 

Watch what you say about yourself. Words are powerful. Speak God’s words and think God’s thoughts concerning you. Agreed with God despite what you see or feel. You need to renew your mind before you can start thinking God’s though and this takings discipline, dedication, devotion, dwelling in the word, meditating on it day and night.

 

It does not happen overnight but you must invest your time and effort before it can pay off.

 

The Israelites who focused on what they saw and spoke fear and unbelief died because of what they spoke which was contrary to what the mind of God for them.  Only Joshua and Caleb took sides with God and they were the only ones amongst the adults who survived and entered the Promised Land.

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.Rom12:2

 

7   For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. ” Eat and drink!” he says to you, But his heart is not with you.Prov:23:7

8   Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy — meditate on these things.Phil4:8

21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.Prov.18:21

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.

24 Put away from you a deceitful mouth, And put perverse lips far from you.Prov.4:21-24

14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Your sight, O LORD, my strength and my Redeemer.Ps19:14

 

63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.John6:63

Proverbs 6

2 You are snared by the words of your mouth; You are taken by the words of your mouth.

Proverbs 6:2

3   Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; Keep watch over the door of my lips.Ps141:3

29 Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification, that it may impart grace to the hearers.

Ephe4:29

37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

Matt12:37

 

27 Then they told him, and said: “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.

29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the South; the Hittites, the Jebusites, and the Amorites dwell in the mountains; and the Canaanites dwell by the sea and along the banks of the Jordan.”

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.”

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.”Num13:27-33

36 Now the men whom Moses sent to spy out the land, who returned and made all the congregation complain against him by bringing a bad report of the land,

37 those very men who brought the evil report about the land, died by the plague before the LORD.

38 But Joshua the son of Nun and Caleb the son of Jephunneh remained alive, of the men who went to spy out the land. Num14:36-38

Looking back to look forward

Looking back to look forward Again

We may not know the future

But we know God, our Reward

With Him there is good in store.

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/tailzdude/CGCB-1.png

 

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/tailzdude/CGC6.png

 

He is Shepherd of the sheep

Who follow in obedience

He is well able to keep

Those in complete reliance.

 

My task is to look to Him

Always, despite what I see

He will fulfil what is a dream

As the Master of the Sea.

 

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i134/tailzdude/j04094221.jpg

 

Therefore I throw fear away

And hold tightly to His word

Come what may, He is the way

And He will make good, His word.

 

‘We can trust our all knowing God

For the unknown future.’

 

 

 

“Though clouds surround the present and I do not know what the future may hold, I have the assurance that the Shepherd will show me the way.   My task is to follow Him in love and obedience, and trust each step to Him.” David Roper (Our Daily Bread)

 

8     Then Israel saw Joseph’s sons, and said, “Who are these?”

9     Joseph said to his father, “They are my sons, whom God has given me in this place.” And he said, “Please bring them to me, and I will bless them.”

10   Now the eyes of Israel were dim with age, so that he could not see. Then Joseph brought them near him, and he kissed them and embraced them.

11   And Israel said to Joseph, “I had not thought to see your face; but in fact, God has also shown me your offspring!”

12   So Joseph brought them from beside his knees, and he bowed down with his face to the earth.

13   And Joseph took them both, Ephraim with his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh with his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near him.

14   Then Israel stretched out his right hand and laid it on Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand on Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands knowingly, for Manasseh was the firstborn.

15   And he blessed Joseph, and said: ” God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac walked, The God who has fed me all my life long to this day,

16   The Angel who has redeemed me from all evil, Bless the lads; Let my name be named upon them, And the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; And let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.” Gen.48:8-16

Find the Book

In a Sunday school some children were told to find scrolls hidden away with scriptures written on them. They were promised some goodies and off they went with excitement and anticipation, enthusiasm, wanting to outdo each other. They were moving chairs and tables, climbing ‘mountains’, descending ‘valleys’ and poring purses.

The congregation was set alight with joy and affirmation which renewed and underlined  the importance of the Word of God

In many homes, the Bible is hidden away on shelves whilst there are places in the world where Bibles are a rarity -a treasure to be hunted and treasured.

You really don’t know what you have until you lose it.  And if you don’t use it, you’ve lost it.

May we find the word of God and the voice of God for our lives today and always.

Find the Book

Book of books

8.Then Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the scribe, “I have found the Book of the Law in the house of the LORD.” And Hilkiah gave the book to Shaphan, and he read it. 2Kings22:8

Words of Wisdom

Apples Of Gold

 

 

They say an apple a day

 keeps the doctor away.

Go on! Have some apples

Of gold, in a setting of silver.

They’ll keep from trouble,

Or keep you from stumbling,

Or keep you from struggles,

 Or help you leap over hurdles.

 

Eat as much as you can.

No one will accuse you of greed

Or call you an Oliver Twist.

 

Feed your eyes.

Fuel your spirit and soul,

As you grow in grace

In your Race of Grace

Get insight, foresight,

Prudence, discretion,

Knowledge, understanding and

The Wisdom of the Kingdom life.

 

Don’t forget to pass

some of the apples

 to a friend in need.

Remember: A friend in need

Is a friend indeed.

 

I know they also say,

‘One bad apple

spoils the whole bunch.’

But you don’t need to

worry about that here.

These apples you see

have longevity

 and purity to infinity.

They will never go bad.

They have ability

not only to reform,

but also transform

the hard and bad.

They are plumb, lush

Delicious, mouth watering;

Simply divine.

 

 Accusation

False accusation is a trump card Satan uses whenever you’re about to be promoted.

 

Action

 

It is not what you say, but what you do that matters.

Doing the right thing is the right way to right a wrong.

Action vindicates confession

Allowance

 

Complaining about what you allow is the beginning of insanity

What you permit you, you commit and cannot omit

 

Altitude

Your attitude to God’s statutes determines your altitude in life and where you spend eternity.

 

Anger       

 

If you take a flight in anger, you’re bound to land in danger.

If you take Flight Anger, your destination will be Danger.

.

Anger is destructive passion

.

Anger is misdirected passion

Assignment

 

Your assignment will only be in confinement when your alignment to God is hold no water.

 

 

Association

Have courage to let the wrong people go, and your dream will take off.

You cannot be holding on to Jonah and expect the storm against your boat because of Jonah to stop.

Let the wrong people go and your vision will start going places.

Preserving a relationship that should die is like going East and leaving your anchor on a train going West.

Some relationships are for a season.  A man of reason will identify them and let go. A fool will hold on to them and lose his destiny.

God will not give you a relationship that will take His place.

Watch your association. They could assuage or undermine your acceleration.

Get rid of the Jonah in your boat before it sinks.

You cannot be wise whilst walking with fools.

 

Attitude/ ingratitude

 

Ingratitude is the attitude that betrays altitude.

The attitude of servitude leads to altitudes.

 

Attack

Satan only attacks those people who have what he fears.

The level of your attack is a mirror and measure of the level of your blessing.

Anointing attracts attack.

 

 

Avarice

 

Forcibly taking what God has not given to you is a way to lose what He gave to you.

 

Battles

 

Life is a constant battle.  You either breakthrough or you bail out.

What makes life interesting are the constant battles we face to keep us looking at His face.

What has dogged your footsteps the most is your spring-board in waiting to be stepped on and tapped for your lift-off.

No battles, no victories

Every battle has a potential blessing. But only the wise see the blessing before hand.

Unless you’ve been through some things, you cannot bring anyone through anything.

The battles you face determine the blessings that you enjoy.

 

Belief

What you believe in your heart determines what you receive in your hand.

 

 

 

 

 

Bitterness

Bitterness is like a dog that bites its keep and owner, wounding them and slowly maiming them to death.[/size]

Bitterness is slow death.

Bitterness hurts the holder more than it does the person against whom it is held.

 

 

Boundary

If you have no boundary, you’re in a quandary and anything goes.

 

Challenge

What you do not challenge, takes root.

Change

 

Change brings strange discomfort

Change may bring pain in its train but it also brings gain.

What you refuse to confront you reinforce   .

 

Change comes with crisis.

To change your future you have to begin the change today.

Your present is the result of your past and your future will be the result of your present. So fix your present to fix your future.[/size]

 

 

Character Fruit/Gifts

Fruits reveal character. Gift reveal graces-unmerited favour bestowed

 

Choices

Your choices determine your future success or failure[/size]

 

Commitment

 

Your commitment and desire to stretch and press will lift you up to the top of the ladder.

An uncommon dream requires an uncommon commitment.

 

Complaining

Complaining about what you allow is the beginning of insanity.

 

Critics

Some people are experts at analysing why Peter sank whilst never thinking of leaving the boat themselves.

Critics are gold when they are constructive and dross when they are destructive.

 

Cross

 When Satan shows you your minus, take it to the cross where it can be turned into a plus.

Debt

Debt is the death of financial prudence.

Debt is the loss of financial freedom.

Debt is financial slavery.

Debt mortgages your future for present gratification.

Debt is the mortgage of your financial future.

Debt is the forfeiture of your financial future.

Decision

 

The decision of the troubled mind leads to further confusion and trouble.

The decision of the troubled mind adds to the trouble, divides the mind and multiplies the sorrow.

When you get to your crossroad, look to the cross.

 

Deception

Judgement by appearance is deception in abeyance.

Destiny

The solutions you bring with ease is a pointer to your destiny and dream

 

Determination

 

Your level of determination determines your level of breakthrough

 

Diligence

The diligent does today what the indolent postpones till another day.

The indolent delays-dilly dallying, whereas the diligent is prompt

Don’t delay. Do today, what you can do today and your future shall come to stay.

 

Direction

Without a direction, there is no destination.

 

Disobedience

Disobedience says to God, ‘I don’t trust you. I have no confidence in you.  I’ll do it my own way.’

Disobedience precedes insignificance.

 

Doctrine

 

Adjusting your theology to your tragedy is a recipe for disaster.

 

 

Doubt

Doubt your doubt to oust your enemies

Doubt breaks the legs of a miracle even before it had had the chance to put its pants on.

 

Dream

 

When your dream is married to God’s dream, you get a great stream without infinite source, resource, getting and begetting from generation to generation.[/size]

 

Enemies

The bigger your enemy, the bigger the victory

Your enemies can indirectly leads you to your victory.[/size]

 

Environment

Your environment can be a catalyst to your productivity

 

Excellence

Resenting excellence condemns and consigns you to mediocrity

 

Extraordinary

 

Unless you add the ‘extra’ to the ordinary, it does not become extraordinary.

Unless you do what others are not prepared to do, you’ll remain where they are.

 

 Failure

Failure is a good teacher in the school of success.[/size]

 

Faith /fear

 

When fear is embraced, faith is rebuffed and fired.

Fear uproots faith and plants itself.

Unless you step into the water you cannot walk on water.

Refine your goal to recharge your faith

Faith is the airplane that takes you from one altitude to another.

When you kill faith, fear is born.

Crying does not move God. It’s faith that moves Him.

When you kill fear, faith is born.

When you clip the wings of faith, fear rules.

Feed your faith with the word of faith.

 

Falling

 

Everyone falls, but the wise ones rise up and keep on going

If you have not fallen then you have not tried walking.

 

Fame

 

Fame will shame you unless you back it with character.

Fame will birth failure in future unless secured on a solid rock.

 

Familiarity

When you’re too familiar with something, it disappears.

 

Favour

 

One day of divine favour is better than a life-time of human labour

 

Fear

 

 

When you are afraid, you are telling God: I know You are powerful, but I cannot trust You.

Fear makes a mountain out of a mole hill.

Fear forges, freezes and falsifies the truth.

Fellowship

 

When you get away from God’s fold, you get cold.

 

Focus

Your focus feeds your feeling

What you focus on you become

The sharper your focus, the greater your confidence

If you focus on what you’re going through, you’ll forfeit where you’re going to.

If you focus on what you’re going through you get no where.

Stop looking backward or you’ll miss the mark in front.

When you break your focus, you breach your future.

Focus on Jesus and you’ll not be at a loss.

 

Fool

 

  A fool fights darkness instead of putting on the light.[/size]

 

  Friends    

  Your friends can frame your future 

 

Future   

  What you do today will determine where you’ll be tomorrow

With God, your past does not determine your future

God always uses what you have now to bring about what you need in future.

If you can see the picture of your future in the present, you will get there. 

 

  Gift  

 

  When the gift takes the place of the Giver, it’s time to let go.

Beware of French gifts.  They are hooks from crooks with bait at the end.

A wise man prevents his foot from going into his mouth.

Giver( as above)

 

 

  Giving 

 

  Giving, gags and conquers your greed.

In giving we open the doors of our future harvest.

The more you take, the less you’re blessed. 

 

  Glory 

  Unless you yield totally, you cannot see God’s glory. 

 

 

  Goals  

  If you have no goals others will find goals for you

Without a goal, you’re likely to end up in a gaol or a dead end.

Without a goal you may end up on the dole. 

 

  God’s way  

 

  God’s ways are not our ways.  He uses wounded healers.

You have to be bruised to be used.

To shield your mind field, refuse to yield to your adversary.

Unless you make up your mind yourself, others or events will make it up for you. 

 

  Miracle  

 

  Obstacles and seeming impossibilities are birthplaces of miracles.

Man’s impossibility is the womb of God’s miracles.

The impossibility of man is the breeding ground of a miracle.

Miracles are often birthed on the threshold of great obstacles.

The miraculous often comes through the ridiculous. 

 

Money 

  Money that is misused will mock the previous owner.

 

 

 

 

  Obedience  

 

  Obedience is the key to promotion and excellence

  Without the Prince of Peace, you cannot have the peace of God.

If you refuse peace, you embrace pieces.

  Stand on God’s command even when you don’t understand

When you sing the song God gives you in the night, He brings you into your day.

When you praise God in your night, His strength becomes evident in weakness. 

 

 

  Perspective 

 

  When you can see through the eyes of God, you can have calm within a storm.

  When you live to please people, you will displease God.

If you always seek to please man, you will be frustrated. But if you please God, you will be invigorated.[/size]

Problem-solvers will always be in business.

Life is simple: You’re either creating problems or solving them; creating some problems and solving others or simply creating problems.

  If you don’t use what you have you lose it.

A wise man uses what he has to get what he does not.

Purpose without pursuit is the future postponed.

Purpose opposed can propel. 

 

  Regret  

  Regret would not bring redress but repentance brings resurgence. 

 

 

  Relationship  

  Preserving a relationship that should die is like going East and leaving your anchor on a train going West.

Some relationships are for a season.  A man of reason will identify them and let go when they pass their sell-by date. A fool will hold on to them and lose his destiny.

God will not give you a relationship that will take His place.   

 

  Resentment 

 

  The unsuccessful resent the successful and yet wonder why they are unsuccessful.

Resenting excellence condemns and consigns you to mediocrity.

  Season 

 

Ignoring your season is committing treason without reason.

A harvest before a due season can be hazardous.

 

 

  Seed  

 

 As you release your seed you create a pathway for your needs to be met.

As you release your seed, God releases your harvest.

 A seed takes you from where you are to where you want to be.

For every harvest there is a seed.

If you hold your seed, it cannot bring a harvest.

The quality of your seed determines the quality of your harvest.

Give God your present and He will give you your future. Failure can be a seed you sow for you to succeed.

 

 

 

 

 

  Self image 

  If you have put no value for yourself, no one will put value on you. 

 

 Self-Sufficiency  

  Self-sufficiency is a limitation to and in God. Self-sufficiency undermines God’s sovereignty.

  Significance  

 

The significant, pay the price the insignificant refuse to pay.   

 

 

Silence  

  If you have nothing good to say keep quiet. Silence cannot be amplified. 

 

  Sin 

  When you’re yielded to the Spirit, you’ll not be yielded to sin.

When you enjoy sin, you mortgage your joy.

Those who eat others for breakfast with you will one day eat you for breakfast with others. 

  Solutions 

For every problem, there is a Solution

 

When you solve a problem, you’re making a bed of roses that you will one day lie on.

When you become a solution centre, you’re entering the centre of your future.

 

  Short cuts 

  When you take a short cut to the promise of God, you not only cut yourself short but also short-change yourself.

When you cheat to fulfil the promise of God, you have failed the test and have to do it again. 

 

  Sovereignty of God  

 

  Be sure of this: God will never make Himself irrelevant in your life. 

 

  Sowing and Reaping 

  Reckless sowing gives birth to excess, bumper harvest.

If you want a bountiful harvest, you have to sow a bountiful seed.

If you sow nothing, you will reap nothing

Unless you sow a seed, you cannot have a harvest.

Often you have to do what you have not done before do get what you love to have.

When a good seed meets with a good soil, the harvest is bumper.

Your seed return with a harvest when you least expect it.

Give your seed an assignment and it will not remain indolent.

A seed sown in a good ground will turn your life around.

You cannot sow corn and reap acorns.  You cannot sow apples and reap apricots

If you eat your seed, you will have no harvest.

You cannot be 100% behind God when you rob Him of your 10%[/size].

 

 

  Spiritual warfare 

 

  When the devil is after you, you go after God.

Temptation 

  When Satan wants to lure you, he dangles a carrot.[/size]

 

 Time  

  If you do not value your time, then your financial future has no value

  Toleration 

  What you tolerate, you cannot mitigate, eliminate or obliterate.

What you tolerate, you instigate and propagate. 

 

 Transformation 

  Information acted upon brings transformation  

 

  Trials /Treasures/Triumph

  Treasures of darkness are released through triumphing over trials.  

  Use what you’re going through as a ladder or lift to where you’re going to.

A beautiful tapestry is usually made up of different colour; some bright, and some dark. If you want only bright colours, forget the tapestry. And this applies to your life.  

 

 Trust 

  Trusting the right person will thrust you into your future.  

 

  Uniqueness

Your difference makes for your significance.  

 

  Use /service  

  There is a potential for being used most in the area you are tried most.  

 Value  

 If you have put no value for yourself, no one will put value on you.

Waiting  

  Waiting time is growing time, not groaning or moaning time.  

  Weakness  

 

  Man’s weakness is God’s strength.

Never kid with any weakness that has been your waterloo.

An uncommon weakness is a potential ground for an uncommon grace.

An uncommon weakness is an opportunity for God’s strength to be made manifest.

Those who caress and stroke your weakness will stoke and stall your future.

Those who caress your weakness are careless about your future.

Your weakness can be your strengths, with God.

Satan’s link to you is your weakest point.

  Wisdom  

Man’s wisdom is God’s foolishness.  

 

  Word of God  

  The word of God is the will of God.  

 

 

  Words  

 

  Your words will imprison you or set you free.

Your words will lift you or put you down.

Your words will mitigate you or liberate you.

Your words can fire you up or retire you.

Your words can be your asset or your liability, you choose.

You can choose what you say and choose what to have independent of what you have chosen to say.

What you have chosen to say is what you have chosen to have.

When you give someone a piece of your mind and lose your peace, you might end up in hospital.

What you say determines the wages you get on pay day.

How you say it is as important as what you say.  

 

 

  Worry  

  Worry will nag you, wind you up, weary you, ditch you in a pool of hurry and make you sorry.
