Poem: My Restorer, Giver of Fortitude

Psalm 59:16-17

16: But I will sing your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; For you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble.

17:O my strength, I will sing to you: you, O God, are my fortress, my loving God.

Poem: My Restorer, Giver of Fortitude

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

As an object I was discarded, still I aligned with them though dejected.

Then you came along and composed for me a new song.

Love-filled lyrics sweet to my ears awakened my soul, ’til then among the lifeless throng.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

You unlocked the truth of my worth and sang oracles to reveal the miracle of my birth.

With thanksgiving I eat of your goodness and drink from your fountain of joy.

With gladness I enter your gates of renewal, far away from the dungeons of those that destroy.

My Restorer, giver of fortitude, to you I sing this song of gratitude.

Knowing God 

Do you know Your God?
Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits! Do you know your God? The Father of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ? 
No I don’t mean “know about Him” nor what the scriptures say of Him. Yes, hearing about Him and reading the holy scriptures is a start. But knowing Him goes far beyond. 

Knowing Him releases you from doubt and from being attentive to deceptive whispers and subtle nuances of Satan, the father of lies in every day life. 
Knowing Him arms you with invisible weapons that manifest in outbursts of praise and the ability to discern and prophesy life into dead or binding situations.
Knowing Him gives you a supernatural ability to be a step ahead of your enemies and to overcome the wiles of Satan not just for yourself but for the weak and vulnerable.
Knowing Him is your shelter from life’s dangers as He is a Father who is forever holding you in His arms, comforting you and giving you wisdom in every circumstance.
Knowing Him is like having a dependable survival kit all the days of your life.
Do you know Your God ?

Exhortation: The Advance – Press On!

What is the vision? What is the goal for which you press on, for which you aspire? Has the Lord spoken something into your heart that you hope to achieve ? Is there a plan and a purpose of God you know about that has been revealed through a prophet? 
I say press on! 

Do not allow failures or situations of the past to hold you back or cause you to regress. Resist the voices of people who have caused you to doubt your ability to achieve anything from being amplified in your mind repetitively. 

In the bible, James says 

“Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” (James 4:7 KJV)

We can only resist the enemy by bible study and meditation. This is because we are strengthened and revived in believing that what is impossible for man to achieve is possible by God (Luke 18:27/Matt.19:26).
The Word of God is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our pathway (Psalm 119:105) and enables us to see the way forward clearly and gives us Elohim God’s wisdom in how to advance. 

Christ Yeshua is wisdom personified and by his death, burial and resurrection, divine power from God hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3 KJV). We are therefore able to press forward and advance into higher heights and deeper depths in God.

Brethren, let us have a steadfast resolve to press on as the Apostle Paul when he said 

“…I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”(Phil. 3:13-14KJV).

Have a blessed day in Him

Poem:

EXHORTATION – A Christlike Self Perspective: Never disabled, forever unstoppable

Let nothing & no one call you “disabled” (incapable, unable, unworthy, insignificant etc…)

Will you allow others to label you and so define you? Will you accept their definition of you as opposed to God’s ? The negative definition that seeps into not only your conscious mind but also your subconscious, resulting in self limitation, under-valuing your capabilities or even prevents you from seeing what you are capable of!

The state of being “disabled” whether physical or spiritual is a matter of perspective. If you have a life in God, one of your key taglines should be “I am always capable through Christ”. Don’t be like a prisoner

-who has had their chains removed but is still standing in a bound position.

-whose prison doors are open but he cannot see it and is still sitting in the prison. Jesus came to set the captives free (Isaiah 61).

When in Christ, there is nothing you cannot achieve in life, regardless of your

✝️physical state, Nick Vujicic is an example, he said

“I don’t believe I am disabled. Yes, I may have no limbs, but no big deal. It doesn’t matter how I look—

it’s WHO I AM and WHAT I CAN DO that matters!”

(in picture below) check out his life story and achievements to the glory of God.

✝️youth: David who became king of Israel was a youth when God started to use him. By God’s power and might he was able to fight against the lion and the bear while tending to his sheep in the wilderness.

He developed the “I can” self perspective that was from God, so that the giant enemy of Israel, Goliath feared by adults of the army of Israel was “chicken feed” in his eyes.

God brought David up to believe he could do all things through God who strengthened him. This ought to minister to us as to how to bring up children or young people. The perspective of one’s self is so important and will determine the course of one’s life.

In our day, God is using young people mighty as it was prophesied by the prophet Joel (Joel 2:25).

✝️little or no education: God gives wisdom and ability to excel for His sake and there are many cases of men and women of God who have not had the privilege of being educated at all or have very elementary education, who are doing exploits for God while demonstrating His wisdom and anointing as they do so.

Let us always see ourselves as children of God who can do all things through Him and Him alone.
Jesus said “5I am the vine, ye [are] the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

6If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast [them] into the fire, and they are burned.”(John 15:5-6 KJV)

It is time for us to discard limiting self-perspectives and live in the reality of Philippians 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”

Eagle’s Wings

eagle

As you wait on our precious LORD remember this: 

Those that wait upon The LORD shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not be weary and walk and not grow faint.
(Isaiah 40:31)

The LORD is saying to you that He will respond when you wait upon Him and you will be

1.Energises by His Holy Spirit able to soar into greater heights and deeper depths in God!
I saw written somewhere the following “an eagle uses the storms to reach unimaginable heights..Let us also use the storms of our lives to reach greater heights spiritually”

Therefore whether we are in a time of peace and just needing some encouragement or refreshing (i.e from tiredness) or in serious problems “storms”, as long as we wait on the LORD or remain abiding in Him, our inner man will be strengthened and uplifted. Waiting on the LORD is therefore abiding in Him.

This means that we do not focus on the greatness of the problem or how low we might be feel, but on God who can change the situation and how we feel. We abide by engaging in bible study and praise to encourage ourselves in the Lord.
Personally I deliberately listen to testimonies of how God has changed people’s lives or circumstances. This has gone a long way to taking my eyes of my worries or problems and fixed them on Jesus.

When King David was going through all his struggles, one thing noteworthy is that he was his own great encourager in the LORD and that is what I say to myself “I have to be my own greatest encourager in the LORD”

2.Blessed exceedingly abundantly more than you can ever ask or think! Blessed in your personal lives and even more blessed because you are a source of blessing for others.

As you wait upon Him through bible meditation and worship what you receive from Him will cause you to be as a permanently TURNED ON TAP with an unending flow of the river of His anointing “life” blessing and healing individuals, communities and nations.

This is because, sisters and brothers, the power of the Word of God and praise within you, which served to encourage and so uplift you cannot be contained!

Jesus said “He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38 KJV)

Many people say they believe in Jesus and some might well do and so be filled with the Holy Spirit but they are still in a spiritual desert, why ? Because that belief is not being exercised to the point of transforming them by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit only responds when we call on God through Jesus Christ or when we seek hIm for fellowship. If Christians are not in fellowship with the Holy Spirit and so not “soaring” for their own sakes, how can they be God’s lifeline for others?

I say:
1Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.2For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
3And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.4Lift up thine eyes round about, and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to thee: thy sons shall come from far, and thy daughters shall be nursed at [thy] side.
5Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.(Isaiah 60:1-5)

“Arise & Shine, Blessed one”!

“Then spake Jesus ..saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”(John 8:12)

As you wait upon the LORD also be reminded the powers of darkness tremble and flee because they cannot withstand the Light of God within and around you.

Therefore soar to greater heights and deeper depths in Him.

TO DO EXPLOITS: KNOW YOUR GOD & BE STRONG IN HIM

 

Those who know their God shall be strong and do exploits (Daniel 11:32b)… My brethren be strong in The Lord and in the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10)

To be and remain strong in The Lord and in the power of His might (mature overcomer Christians) let us be reminded of two fundamental keys, we must

  1. Study and meditate on His Word, the Bible; This is the Old and New Testament. The Old Testament points to the New, therein we see Christ Yeshua.
  2. Fellowship with Holy Spirit, the power of God & as the Spirit of prophecy testifies of Yeshua. He is a teacher and revealer of the will/Wisdom of God and reminder of Yeshua’s teachings. By Holy Spirit we attain the nature of God/Yeshua; fruit and gifts of the Spirit and therefore empowered to resist and overcome satan.

 

 BE STRONG IN THE LORD AND DO EXPLOITS FOR HIM!!!
