When Your Heart is in My Hands ( by Fenny West)

When Your Heart is in My Hands

When Your Heart is in the right place, you will go the right place, say the right things, associate with the right people and get the right result. 

It does not mean life will be rosy or comfortable, or smooth-sailing. You will face opposition and some struggle, but they will be opportunities to see the power, sovereignty, beauty and presence of God. 

We were created by Him and for Him. He gives us rest and fulfillment. Outside Him, we will be famished, restless like a fish out of a sea or like an eagle 🦅 in a cage. He loves us with an Everlasting love, unconditional love, Agape love. 

Little wonder He said, “My Son, give me your heart.” Life is spiritual. God is a Spirit. We hail from His breath. But we wandered away from Him. Only He can satisfy, give us peace and restore us. Only the Prince of Peace can give us peace profound. 

My son, give me your heart. My daughter, give me your heart. Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone will hear My voice and open the door, I will come in and dine with him and he with Me. Let me into your heart. And I will give you a New Beginning, a New Start, a New  Song. The old will go and the new will come. You will pass from death to life. You will become a New Creation. 

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. And how wonderful if I am your treasure and your heart is in My hands! How glorious and victorious you will be if I am your treasure and pleasure and your heart is in My hands! How beautiful and fitting if you love me too and your heart is in My hands! YOU will be Unconquerable, indomitable, unquenchable. Besides, you will have life more abundant-the God-kind of life – Zoe. And the angels will have a party 🎉 and praise God for your bravery and noble choice. You can do it today, even right now!

9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Rom10:9-10

19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Matt6:19-21

A New Man, You Are ( Fenny West)

New Man, You Are

New Man You Are, Without a Past
You have passed from death to life 
His blessings upon you are vast
All because Christ is Now your life. 

So Your New heritage has begun indeed
It all began the day you were born again
And whom the Son sets free is free indeed
And you were set free, with Him to reign. 

So make your calling an election sure
Give no room for the enemy to gloat
Be not ignorant of his plot, ploy and lure 
Take not his carrot, get out of his boat
Unmask him, use the Sword of the Spirit
Give him no chance, or bridgehead. 
Give him no loophole; for he is a foe
Come to steal, kill and destroy. 
Beware the little foxes that spoil the vine
They will pollute your house, the New wine
They are all out to destroy all that is divine. 

Beware the wolves that come in sheep’s clothing
Beware of Jacob disguised as Esau
He has come for just one thing: steal your blessing
He may say, “Peace!” but in his heart is War. 
He does not play fair; he’s an outlaw. 
So cast him out and shut well the door 🚪 
Use your sling and stone, put him down
Make sure he does not get up from the floor. 
Know without a doubt 
It is a spiritual warfare, 
Of this truth you must be aware
Refuse any truce or come cease-fire
Refuse any buffer zone
Or demilitarised zone
It is all a lie, a dangerous game to outwit you
Be not ignorant of his devices, stratagems. and sinister diabolical tricks to ensnare, imprison, blind and decapitate. 

You are a New Man with a New mission 
You are a New Man with a New vision 
You are a New Man with a New Mandate
You are a New Man with the mind of Christ
You are a New Man created in His image
You are a New man with the divine nature
You are a New Man who is a new Creation
You are a New Man made an overcomer
You are a New Man made a winner 🥇 
You are a New Man made to prevail 
Sin shall not have dominion over you
You are a New Man with that nature of righteousness. 
You are a New Man with that nature of holiness. 
You are a New Man justified by faith
You are a New Man saved by grace through faith. 
You are a New Man born for greatness 
You are a New Man who is greatly graced. 
And Who knows whether you have come 
To the Kingdom for such a time as this?

Salvation: As Simple As ABC ( by Fenny West)

Salvation is as simple as A, B, C

It is not a product of what you do but what has been done on Calvary’s Cross.

Jesus paid the price for you and I. It is a free gift of life- not of works, lest any should boast.

Only Jesus can save- not good works.

All you need to do is to surrender your life to Jesus.

How?

Acknowledge that You are a sinner by nature and all your righteousness is not good enough to save you.

(Going to church does not make you a Christian- In fact, Jesus did not come to make us Christians but He came to make us disciples- followers of Him. Being born in a barn does not make you a sheep.

Believe that He died for you- for your justification and redemption and salvation.

Confess Jesus as Lord of Your life. Commit your life to Him. Call on Him to come and take His rightful place – at the centre of your heart.

Pray this simple prayer:

Father, I come this day to your throne of Grace.

I acknowledge that I cannot save myself; only Jesus can, and He has done the deed on the cross when He died.

I accept that perfect sacrifice, even now.

Come into to my life, Lord Jesus and take your rightful place. You said whoever comes to you, will not be turned away. It is also written, “As many as received Him, He gave the power to become children of God.”

You said in your Word, with the heart one believes and is made righteous and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.

I believe with my heart that Jesus is my Saviour and my Lord. I confess Him as Lord of my life from this day.

I am born again. The old has gone and the new has come. I am a New Creation. The Life of God is now resident in me. I have passed from death unto life.

Thank You, Lord, for saving me.

I thank God I am born again.

Use the form below to record your salvation today. Note that you have been born from above. Make a good note of this date. You may not feel different, but your salvation is not based on feelings. It is based on the truth of the Word of God.

Thank God, I am Born Again!

I ————————————————–

On the ———– of —————

Acknowledged that:

I was a sinner, in need of a Saviour and that only Jesus can save me (Eph2:8-9).

Believed that:

Jesus died in my place, took my sin away and bridged the gap between me and God.

(2Corinthians5:21, 1Peter1:18-19, John1:29, Romans 8:1-2, Romans5:1)

Confessed Jesus as my Lord and Saviour and invited Him to come into my life. (Romans10:9-10,13)

And as a result of this quality decision:

I was born again, the old went and the new came, according to the scriptures

(2Corinthians 5:17, John3:3,8, John1:12, John6:37, Revelation3:20,).

My name was written in the book of life

I am now part of the Body of Christ –the Church -looking forward to His return.

I am now a child of God and a citizen of heaven.

The Holy Spirit is my Helper, Standby, Teacher, Comforter, Strengthener and Guide.

( John16,13,14,17)

God is not just my God, He is my Father in heaven.

I do not have religion but a relationship with Him

Thank you, Jesus, for saving me.

Help me, Lord to live and shine for you.

Signed————————————————

Do me a favour by letting me know You have committed your life to Christ. I want to rejoice with you and help you to grow in grace to maturity. God bless you richly.

 

You Can’t Change Your Past ( by Fenny West)

love& spirit love1Cor13 framed1 favour follows me I did this for you love is the greatest author and finisher forgiven, acquitted freedom in Christ fear not faith over worry

You Can’t Change the Past

You can’t change the past

But you can stop its hold.

The blood dealt with your past.

To stop its stranglehold.

The past has come and gone

Why cry over spilt milk

Use it and be airborne

Yes saint use it as lift.

You can’t change the past

So stop looking back

It’s time to forget the past

And reach for what’s ahead.

Your best day is ahead

On the good news be fed

And you will be the head

Rise, now from your bed!

 

12   Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me.13 Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,14 I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Phil3:12-14

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.2Cor.5:17

3     Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,4 just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,6 to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

Phil1:3-6

27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. Col1:27

30 But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption –Cor1:30

4Coming to Him as to a living stone, rejected indeed by men, but chosen by God and precious,5 you also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

9     But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;10 who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.

1Pet2:4-5,9-10

9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.1John1:9

 

It’s Time to Seek the Lord ( by C.H. Spurgeon)

“It is time to seek the Lord.”

Tulips God's plan call to me Jer33 3 T stand and knock CG5D CG96 114-1010[1]

Hosea 10:12

This month of April is said to derive its name from the Latin verb aperio, which signifies to open, because all the buds and blossoms are now opening, and we have arrived at the gates of the flowery year. Reader, if you are yet unsaved, may your heart, in accord with the universal awakening of nature, be opened to receive the Lord. Every blossoming flower warns you that it is time to seek the Lord; be not out of tune with nature, but let your heart bud and bloom with holy desires. Do you tell me that the warm blood of youth leaps in your veins? then, I entreat you, give your vigour to the Lord. It was my unspeakable happiness to be called in early youth, and I could fain praise the Lord every day for it. Salvation is priceless, let it come when it may, but oh! an early salvation has a double value in it. Young men and maidens, since you may perish ere you reach your prime, “It is time to seek the Lord.” Ye who feel the first signs of decay, quicken your pace: that hollow cough, that hectic flush, are warnings which you must not trifle with; with you it is indeed time to seek the Lord. Did I observe a little grey mingled with your once luxurious tresses? Years are stealing on apace, and death is drawing nearer by hasty marches, let each return of spring arouse you to set your house in order. Dear reader, if you are now advanced in life, let me entreat and implore you to delay no longer. There is a day of grace for you now–be thankful for that, but it is a limited season and grows shorter every time that clock ticks. Here in this silent chamber, on this first night of another month, I speak to you as best I can by paper and ink, and from my inmost soul, as God’s servant, I lay before you this warning, “It is time to seek the Lord.” Slight not that work, it may be your last call from destruction, the final syllable from the lip of grace.
