FIRE BY NIGHT

...."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, or the pillar
of fire by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
"STEPPING BACK" AND ENTERING INTO REST
Words of prophecy:
* When adverse circumstances suddenly arise My children should immediately get "into faith" [love] rather than "into fear".
you will be established; You will be far from oppression, for you will not fear; And from terror, for it will not come near you. If anyone fiercely assails you it will not be from Me. Whoever assails you will fall because of you. Behold, I Myself have created
the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work; And I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; And every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of
the servants of the LORD, and their vindication is from Me,' declares the LORD".... Isaiah 54:14-17 NASB
...."For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a
sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
Concerning one "stepping back" from an adverse environment and entering into rest [peace in the secret place of God's Presence]: When one's proper perspective
is restored things are seen [viewed] properly and the Enemy and his attempt to influence us with an "overactive" thought life is stopped cold. It is much easier for us to bring EVERY thought captive when we enter into the Father's Presence and allow Him to
"slow things down" for us.
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the true knowledge of God [and who we ALREADY are, in Christ],
and we are taking every thought captive [through proclamation] to the obedience of Christ [a revelation of the Father's Will]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You are our place of refuge. We thank You that as we enter into your holy Presence our "spiritual equilibrium" is perfectly restored - EVERY TIME. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name -
to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
