"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
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, or the pillar of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
Words of prophecy:
* I have called
My children to "abide" [dwell] in My Kingdom - in peace and joy and righteousness that they might be found continually accessing the peace that passes all human understanding; be empowered by the joy that continually produces divine strength and
courage - and be found to be righteously motivated in ALL that they say and do [Matthew 5:48]. This is the true Kingdom-life - and truly I say to you, those who set themselves to diligence [spiritually speaking] in this most critical hour will SURELY experience
an open Heaven and, thus, they will literally experience Heaven on earth superabundantly - and in a manner that they never thought possible this side of Heaven [Eternity], itself!
"courage"- the quality of mind or spirit that enables a
person to face difficulty, danger, pain etc., without fear;
...."[What, what would have become of me] had I not believed that I would see the Lord's goodness in the land of the living! Wait and
hope for and expect the Lord; be brave and of good courage and let your heart be stout and enduring. Yes, wait for and hope for and expect the Lord".... Psalms 27:13-14The Amplified Translation
the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit".... Romans 14:17 NASB
It takes an ongoing courage - as well as a steadfast love towards
both God and man - for one to be found seeking first the Kingdom [and remain righteously motivated] at every turn - keeping both feet firmly planted therein.
...."the righteous are
bold as a lion".... Proverbs 28:1b NASB
...."No man will be able to stand before you all the days of your life. Just as I have been with Moses, I will be with you; I will not fail you
or forsake you. Be strong and courageous, for you shall give this people possession of the land which I swore to their fathers to give them. Only be strong and very courageous; be careful to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you;
do not turn from it [the Word of God] to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go. This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful
to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success. Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go"....
Joshua 1:5-9 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that in Christ You have raised us up a courageous people - a people who are "fearless" in
the carrying out of Your highest Will and Kingdom-purposes. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
