Immanuel Is:

Immanuel is  God with Us

The Rose in our Thorn.
He is the Lilly of the Valley
The Fairest of the Ten Thousand.

In Him is light and life and might.
In Him is spiritual sight.
He is the Prince of Peace.
He is our peace-
Jehovah Shalom.
He is the Intercessor, Wonderful Counselor, Comforter, the Advocate, the First and the Last, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
He is the Captain of Salvation-the Lamb of God, Our Sanctification, Jehovah N’kadesh, Our Righteousness- Jehovah Tsidkenue;
He is the Ever-present Lord-Jehovah Shammah.
He is the Good Shepherd-Jehovah Rohi, Our Healer-Jehovah Rophe, the Great Physician,  Our Victorious Banner-Jehovah Nissi.
He is the Strong and Breasted One; God’s Son, the Holy One, God of gods.
He can move any mountain, heal any disease and walk on water.

You Are Valuable To God ( By Fenny West)

You Are Valuable To God

You are valuable to God
And created in His image.
Pay attention to His Word
And you’ll see your destiny.

He paid a great price for you
Because you are valuable.
He emptied Himself for you
Because you are valuable.
He became a ransom for you
Because you are valuable.
Yes, the sinless became sin
Because you are valuable.
He took your shame and curse
Because you are valuable.
The Son of Man, Son of God went to hell,
He abandoned His seat in glory,
Abandoned His majesty,
All because you are valuable.
He was separated from the Father
came down to earth
Because you are valuable.
He died the death on the cross
Because you are valuable.

He took you from the ‘guttermost’ to the uppermost
Because you are valuable.
He cleansed you from your sin
Because you are valuable.
He broke the jail door to set you free
Because you are valuable.
He would leave the ninety-nine and go for the one missing sheep-you
Because you are valuable.
He made you an heir of God and joint heir with Christ 
Because you are valuable to Him.

You were bought with a great price.
So what should your response be?
What would your response be?

Give Him your all, 
Give Him your heart.
He raised you from the fall.
He gave you a New start
He gave you a head start.
He gave you His divine nature.
He made you a New Creature,
gave you the free gift of life-salvation.

Now make the most of it.
Now maximise your potential.

You are valuable to God
He created you for good works He foreordained.
He made you a co-worker with Him.
He made you an apple of His eyes.
He made you a priest and a king.
He made you a light of the world just as He was and is the light of the world.
He made you a saviour even as He is the Saviour of the world.
So go and shed your light.
Go and make an impact.
Go as His hands and feet.
Go as His voice.
Go as His representative.
Go as His ambassador.
Go to your Jerusalem.
Go to your Judea.
Go to your Samaria
And then to the uttermost of the earth.
Go to the highways and byways.
Leave no stone unturned.
Go like the woman at the well.
Go like the mad man of Gadara who became an evangelist to ten cities-Decapolis.
Go like the Ethiopian Eunuch who went back with the Good News and spread it to Africa.
Go like the four lepers who went to tell others about the bread they received.
Go like Peter to the house of Cornelius and there was a household salvation.
Go like Joseph and fulfil your destiny.
Go like the three Hebrew exiles in Babylon, who honoured God and lived by faith even when their lives were on the line and changed the decree of the king and brought glory to God.
Go like Daniel, who distinguished himself in a foreign land and was used mightily and glorified His Maker and was entrusted with the end-time prophecy and was instrumental to the fulfilment of a prophecy in abeyance.
Go like Peter on the Day of Pentecost who preached so fiery and passionately that about 3000 were

Saved.
You are valuable to God especially in these end-times. You are God’s finest wine in the last time.
So stand up and be counted. 
Arise and take your rightful place. Arise, shine!  It’s your time. It’s your season.
Yield a great dividend for your God. Eye has not seen. Ear has not heard, neither has the mind comprehended what God has in store for you.
Yield to the Holy Spirit and He will do exceeding abundantly, far above what you can ask or think or even imagine, according to the power at work in you.

You are valuable to God.
There is more to you than meets the eye. See yourself as God sees you. Do not demean what He has esteemed. You are unique and a masterpiece.

You are valuable to God!

In Him You Have Peace ( by Fenny West)

In Him You Have Peace

 

In Him you have peace

To end your struggles

In Him your peace

Surpassing knowledge.

In Him your peace

So very boundless.

In Him you have peace

Regardless of storms.

In Him you have peace

Peace that is of God.

In Him you have peace

Reconciling you.

The Prince of Peace

Comes into your heart

When He is invited.

He comes to give a New Start.

He comes to give a New Life.

He will make you a New Creation.

He comes to give us a higher life.

He comes to give us a God-kind of life.

He comes to open our eyes to see beyond the seen.

He comes to lift us from the dung hill to the table of grace.

He comes to lift us from grass to grace, to enable us see His face.

My Hope of Glory ( Fenny West)

My Hope of Glory

Jesus was made to be sin

Though He had no sin.

He took away all my sin.

He took away all your sin.

Jesus was condemned

When I should be condemned;

When you should be condemned.

He made us accepted

In the beloved.

Through His deed

He met our great need

He made me complete

And made you complete.

Through this deed

He gave me a righteous robe

Out went the filthy robe

And when God looks at me,

He sees not what I used to be;

He sees Jesus Christ in me.

My soul, rejoice today

For Jesus made the way

For me to be set free

For the blind to see

For the prisoner of sin to be set free.

My soul, rejoice today

You’re set free from the fowler’s snare.

My face can wear a smile

Gone is all that is vile

Complete in Jesus

Accepted in Jesus

Beloved in Jesus

Christ in me

My hope of glory.

 

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
2 Corinthians 5:21

He Paved the Way ( by Fenny West)

He Paved the Way

He was led away

To pave the way

For you and I

To bring us nigh.

 

He became the scapegoat,

Taking all the sin-load.

He was made sin for us;

To justify all of us.

In all vicissitudes

He became our substitute

Through all calamities

He gave us victories.

 

So who can separate us

From His love for us?

If God is for us

Who can be against us?

Shall tribulation

Or persecution? No!

Shall famine or nakedness? No!

Shall hard knocks or distress? No!

In all these things we’re overcomers

In all these things we’re more than conquerors.

“They took Jesus, and led him away.”
John 19:16

It’s Time To Seek the Lord ( By Fenny West)

 

It’s time to seek the Lord.

As the blossoms and bud

Announce aperio- opening;

Declaring nature’s awakening.

Let your heart be warm

Let the fire of love for God burn.

Let your heart pant for God

As the deer pants for water.

Let your heart be aglow

As gold in the Refiner’s fire.

Let the spring of the Spirit flow.

As the birds sing and rejoice in this spring

Let your heart sing and let praises ring.

Join in natures song of opening

Unfolding, unfurling, budding and blossoming.

“It is time to seek the Lord.”
Hosea 10:12
