FIRE BY NIGHT
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."You, in Your great compassion, did not forsake them in the wilderness; The pillar of cloud did not leave them by day, to guide them on their way, nor the pillar of fire by night, to light for
them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB

"WHAT DOES LOVE LOOK LIKE IN THIS SITUATION, FATHER?"
Words of prophecy:
* Is it not written, "If you love Me you will obey Me"? Then truly I say to you, if you truly love My people [continually seek My best for them] THEN you will be found obeying Me on their behalf - in even
the smallest details of your own life and ministry.
...."If you [really] love Me, you will keep [obey] My commands".... John 14:15 The Amplified Translation
...."This is My commandment, that you love one another, just as I have loved you".... John 15:12 NASB
...."He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous
in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much".... Luke 16:10 NASB
In any given situation [if it is not already obvious], we must just simply ask, "What does Love look [act] like in this
situation, Father"? - and it is certain that He will be found faithful to show us every time what to do and/or say.
This is what it will look like for the most part [it is a very good checklist]:
...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant
and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the
evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every
person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 The Amplified Translation
The Father is faithful to His Word [what He commands He empowers!] and, indeed, He will NEVER leave us or forsake us. Our confidence in the spiritual reality that He is faithful to complete the work that He has begun in us comes as we continually pursue the
life of faith [Love] by trusting Him daily in the practical affairs of life. As we move from "faith to faith" [obedience to obedience]it is certain that all of these things - including us walking into and "abiding" in the fullness of our precious inheritance
in Christ will become a "reality" in our lives.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that as we diligently pursue obedience to the command to "love
one another" You are faithful to show us exactly what You would have us do or say in any given situation or circumstance. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. FAITHFUL is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass".... 1 Thessalonians
