"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
DAY AT A TIME
Words of prophecy:
* I have called My children to a "perfect obedience" - one day at a time.
"perfect obedience" - the seeking after and gaining
a "revelation" of God's Will and, THEN, carrying it out to fulfillment from beginning to end [regardless of how long that may take] in the unction and power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love, the Spirit of Christ etc.], alone.
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]"....
2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right], and then all these things taken together
will be given you besides. So do not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble".... Matthew 6:33-34 The Amplified Translation
which "seem" good [but, in reality, are rooted and grounded in the pursuit of self-desire and self-glory] and perfect obedience [righteous works that are rooted in, and are the spontaneous byproduct of, Love] are two entirely different things.
...."It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and are life"..... John 6:63 NASB
I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh".... Romans 7:18 NASB
...."I am the vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart
from Me you can do nothing".... John 15:5 NASB
...."So you will again distinguish between the righteous and the wicked, between one who serves God and one who does not serve Him. For behold,
the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze," says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor branch".... Malachi 3:18-4:1 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up an obedient people - a people who esteem a revelation of Your Will/Word above ALL else.
And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
