"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
NEVER ALLOW YOURSELF TO BEND TO THE PRESSURE OF TIME
Words of prophecy:
* The exercising of an absolute faith [trust and patience] eliminates
"time" as a factor in the perfect unfolding of My highest Will and purpose. Always remember: time is not THE factor - faith [and the obedience which is its spontaneous and ongoing fruit] is THE factor!
"factor" - one of the
elements contributing to a particular result or situation;
...."Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are
temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
I once heard a teaching by a man of
God entitled "Never Allow Yourself To Bend To The Pressure Of Time". It was an excellent teaching and the essence of it was that if one will just simply refuse to be "moved" by the Enemy's delay and stalling tactics against them [which are designed to lead
them into "self-focus" and worry etc.] THEN they will SURELY allow the Father's Will and purpose [not to mention His Justice, vindication] to come forth perfectly - devastating Satan and his schemes completely. One of Satan's key strategies involves "time"
[and its constraints through unbelief] so it is very important for one to continue to seek first the Kingdom because as they do it will place one in the Presence of God - a place wherein the "timelessness" of the Kingdom reigns.
we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises".... Hebrews 6:11-12 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that in Christ we are free from the constraints of time where the unfolding of Your Will is concerned - a freedom
that empowers us, through the continual exercising of faith and patience, to see Your highest Kingdom-purposes fulfilled on every front. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
