Be the Best ( by Fenny West)

 

BE the BEST

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do Your Duty Diligently and Heartily

CG662 Chronicles 31:21

He did it with all his heart and prospered.

 C.H. Spurgeon

This is no unusual occurrence; it is the general rule of the moral universe that those men prosper who do their work with all their hearts, while those are almost certain to fail who go to their labour leaving half their hearts behind them. God does not give harvests to idle men except harvests of thistles, nor is He pleased to send wealth to those who will not dig in the field to find its hid treasure. It is universally confessed that if a man would prosper, he must be diligent in business. It is the same in religion as it is in other things. If you would prosper in your work for Jesus, let it be heart work, and let it be done with all your heart. Put as much force, energy, heartiness, and earnestness into religion as ever you do into business, for it deserves far more. The Holy Spirit helps our infirmities, but He does not encourage our idleness; He loves active believers. Who are the most useful men in the Christian church? The men who do what they undertake for God with all their hearts. Who are the most successful Sabbath-school teachers? The most talented? No; the most zealous; the men whose hearts are on fire, those are the men who see their Lord riding forth prosperously in the majesty of His salvation. Whole-heartedness shows itself in perseverance; there may be failure at first, but the earnest worker will say, “It is the Lord’s work, and it must be done; my Lord has bidden me do it, and in His strength I will accomplish it.” Christian, art thou thus “with all thine heart” serving thy Master? Remember the earnestness of Jesus! Think what heart-work was His! He could say, “The zeal of Thine house hath eaten Me up.” When He sweat great drops of blood, it was no light burden He had to carry upon those blessed shoulders; and when He poured out His heart, it was no weak effort He was making for the salvation of His people. Was Jesus in earnest, and are we lukewarm?

When You Know Jesus is Really Your Boss

 

When You Know Jesus is Really Your Boss

 

When you know Jesus is really your boss

You will work hard and give Him your best

Knowing that every effort of yours will be a plus

That will ultimately yield a great harvest.

 

When you know that you are in His vineyard

 Worker, called, appointed for divine purpose

Then you will do your duty and work, joy-clad

Knowing that your reward will come in great dose.

 

When you know that you are His Hands and feet

A City on a hill, salt of the earth, light in darkness

Then you will open yourself for Him to complete

And press on in all you do so that His heart you bless.

 

 

When you know that you are a co-worker with Him

Raised with Him, seated with Him in heavenly places

Then you will strive to excel, and fulfil your dream

Knowing that sufficient for you is His surpassing grace.

 

“Work hard and cheerfully at whatever you do, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people. Remember that the Lord will give you an inheritance as your reward, and the Master you are serving is Christ.” (Colossians 3:23-24 NLT)
