On the Road to Greatness ( by Fenny West)

On the road to greatness
There will be great trials
Temptations and tribulations-
All triggers and catalysts of greatness.

Great trials spell great triumphs.
Great valleys spell great victories.
Great barriers birth great breakthroughs.
Great battles bring great miracles.

On the road to greatness
there will be Goliaths,
bears, hyenas and lions.
They will taunt, try, frighten,
Intimidate, growl and howl.

On the road to greatness
There will be crosses to carry
But yes, you can by His
all-sufficient grace,
goodness and loving-kindness.
You will not go under for going over.
You will run through
troops and leap over walls.

You must ‘be still and now that I am God.’
You must be strong and be not afraid nor be dismayed,
because I am with you wherever you go.
Even when you walk through
the valley of the shadow of death,
fear no evil because I am with you.
You must know, that you know,
that you know, that those who
know their God shall be strong
and they shall do great exploits.
You must remember that weeping
may endure but joy is coming
in the morning. You must remember
that I am your shield and
your exceeding great reward.
You must not cast away your confidence,
knowing that there is a great reward
for walking by faith and not by sight.
You must know that I have engraved you
on the palm of My hand and will never forget you.
When you are hard-pressed
know that you will not be crushed
because your life is hidden in Christ in God.
And no weapon fashioned against you
shall prosper and every tongue that rises
against you in judgement
you shall show to be in the wrong.
Fear not at such times
because I am your Refuge
and your ever-present help in trouble.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble
and I will deliver you and you will glorify Me.
Be not anxious about anything but in everything
by prayer and petition let your request be made known to Me.
And my peace which transcends all understanding
will mount guard over your heart
and your mind in Christ Jesus.
Through our God we shall do valiantly.
Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit.
If God be for you, who can be against you?
You can do all things through Christ
who strengthen you. He who began a good work
in you will continue to work
at it until He brings it to a glorious finale.
All things are possible to those who believe.
God is working in you both to will
and to do according to His good pleasure.
Know that the Lord is your light
and your salvation and salvation belongs
to Him. He will fight for you and you will hold your peace.
