Fight the Good Fight of Faith ( by Fenny West)

Fight the Good Fight of Faith

Fight the Good Fight of Faith
Whether In the day or at night.
Put on the whole armour.
Fight in line with the law.

Fight, maintain your focus
And remember Jesus.
He paid the price for you;
Emptied Himself for you;
Bridged the gap for you;
Won the victory for you.

Now fight, knowing you’ve won.2Cor2:14,1Cor15:57
Know that you are a winner.
Fight with a winner’s mentality.
That makes you more than a conqueror.
Ro8:28,31,37-39

In an assembly the question was asked: Who is a conqueror?
Back came the answer: one who fights a war and wins.
Another question was then posed: Who then is more than a conqueror?
There was silence.

Then an old man answered: “One who wins the war even before fighting.”

That is you and I. We are more than conquerors because of what Christ did. Our fight is to enforce the victory He won. He won the war but we have battles to fight. And We fight from a standpoint of victory.

 

…Be of good cheer. I have overcome the world.John16:33

…the Kingdom of God suffers violence but the violent take it by force.”Matt11:12
“Wage a good warfare…”1Tim.1:18
“The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but they are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds…”
“Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on the whole armour of God that you may stand in the evil day. Eph6:10-18

God is Goodness Personified (by Fenny West)

 

God is Goodness Personified

God is Goodness Personified;
Perfect in all His ways;
Gave His best-Jesus-to us all.
His love knows no bounds.
His grace is sufficient for us.
He is able to do exceeding abundantly-far above our wildest dreams.
He can be trusted to keep against that day that committed into His loving and powerful Arms.
He is the Lord-the Lord God; merciful and gracious, extra-ordinarily patient and abundant in goodness and in truth.
When Moses was burdened by the enormity of the vision of taking the children into the Promised Land, he pleaded for the presence of God to go with him, praying, “Show me your glory!”

18 And He said , “Please , show me Your glory.”

19 Then He said , “I will make all My goodness pass before you , and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” Ex.33:18-19

 

Later God declared Who He was:
6 And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed , “The Lord , the Lord God , merciful and gracious , longsuffering , and abounding in goodness and truth , …”
So if you are in dire straits or burdened by a vision that God has given you, meditate on Who has called you-“The Lord, the Lord God.” His grace is sufficient for you. In your weakness, His strength will be made perfect.  
If you have failed Him in any way, remember He is merciful and gracious, extra-ordinarily patient and abundant in goodness and in truth.

Jesus was God personified. Little wonder why He went about doing good, healing all those oppressed by the devil.

38 how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.Act10:38

It is God who gives good gifts.

17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Jam1:17

 

 He made us in His own image. He has given us good gifts. So let us explore and discover the good gifts of God in us and begin to imitate Him and also go about doing good like our Father in heaven.

 

You are Marching Forward ( by Fenny West)

eagle eagle  coming adversity1 God's plan God is speaking ru listening1 david and goliath3 faith over worry fear not david defeats goliath faith fire

You are Marching Forward

 

You are marching forward

And making progress.

Keep standing on the Word.

Refuse to digress.

 

Every place that the soles

of your feet shall tread

God has given to you.

Entertain no fear.

Your pathway is shining

 brighter and brighter

until in full light of day.

Set your sail and soar like an eagle.

Occupy until He comes.

 

Keep on advancing.

Keep taking territories.

Keep making inroads.

Keep making progress.

 

Stand regardless of storms.

Stand regardless of stones.

Stand regardless of flaming arrows.

Stand regardless of read seas.

 

 

Build on the Foundation of the Word ( by Fenny West)

Build on the Foundation of the Word

Unless the Lord builds your house

It is like a tottering fence;

Like a house built by a mouse,

Like a city without defence.

Unless you’re standing on the Word,

You’re building castles in the air

And vanity will be your reward

The truth in this matter is crystal clear.

As for me and my household

We will let the Lord build our house

So that we can stand, strong and bold;

When the storm and wind blow on every house.

We choose to build on the foundation of the Word,

Regardless of what the  world says.

We choose to be guided by the counsel of the God

And hold fast to what God commands and says.

 

 

 

Psalm 127:1 Unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain. Unless the LORD watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain. Amen

 

 

From Maniac to Minister ( by Fenny West)

From Maniac to Minister

 

From Maniac to Minister

Mary of Magdala.

From believer

to avid helper.

Demons: seven, left her

She was no longer

their harbinger.

Jesus was her Deliverer

He was her restorer.

 

From incarceration

Came liberation.

From serfdom

 to freedom.

 

From being afar

She came so near.

At the foot of the cross,

She was there

At the sepulchre

She was there.

Before He ascended

She was there

So He made her

His messenger.

 

“He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils.” Mark 16:9

Let Him grow More ( by Fenny West)

Let Him

grow more

As you grow less

When you confess.

Let Him increase

Fill to the brim

As you decrease

Brimming with Him.

Bow down to Him

In all your dreams

Yield for a yield

Vast in the field.

 

Proverbs 15

33 The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.

roverbs 18

12 Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, And before honor is humility.

Proverbs 22

4 By humility and the fear of the LORD Are riches and honor and life.

Face Fear with Faith ( by Fenny West)

God is present fear not I am with you faith over worry fear not faith fire healing he sees I am with You always ps23 prepares a table ps23  title race of grace legends the Lord is my Light Ps27 j0323740 j0236249 tn_j0353635

Fear knocks on every door

And will surely knock on yours

Choose to do the right thing

Just face fear with faith.

 

Moses and Mary Magdalene faced fear

Mary, the Mother of Jesus, faced fear

Jacob, Joshua and Jeremiah, faced fear

Peter and Paul faced fear

Isaac and Isaiah faced fear

Daniel and David faced fear

Abraham and Azariah faced fear

So prepare to face your fear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hold on to the Word of God.

Think of the power of God.

Think of the promises of God.

Confess the goodness and grace of God

Sufficient for you.

 

Cast on God all your cares

Never live with fear

Or run from fear

But face fear with faith.

 

Faith comes through hearing the word,

Not just once but again and again.

Whether in the sunshine or in the rain.

Resolve, my friend, today, to face fear with faith.

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

1 After these things the word of the LORD came to Abram in a vision, saying, “Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” Gen15:1

10 Fear not, for I am with you;

Be not dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you,

Yes, I will help you,

I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’  Isa41:10

Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying:

5 “ Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;

Before you were born I sanctified you;

I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”

6 Then said I:

“ Ah, Lord GOD!

Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”

7 But the LORD said to me:

“ Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’

For you shall go to all to whom I send you,

And whatever I command you, you shall speak.

8 Do not be afraid of their faces,

For I am with you to deliver you,” says the LORD.
9 Then the LORD put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me: “ Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. Jer1:1-9
