"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's
...."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
TRUE LOVE IS "RELENTLESS" IN ITS PURSUIT OF THE FATHER'S BEST FOR ALL THOSE IN THEIR SPHERE OF EXISTENCE
Words of prophecy:
* True love is "relentless" in its pursuit of My best for all those in their sphere of existence. Indeed, there shall be a great and glorious harvest in this final hour and it will be the spontaneous fruit
of My very Presence and Person [Character] abiding within - and then flowing out of - those I have raised up and, because of these things, many will be "drawn as a magnet draws" to the divine Love abiding in their hearts.
"sphere of existence"
- is not one's "physical" existence but also their "spiritual existence" - an existence that includes those they have met in the past [friend and foe alike] as well as those they have yet to meet, as they continue on the path to the "fullness" of their precious
destiny, in Christ.
...."[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love"....
Colossians 1:13 The Amplified Translation
When we truly set ourselves to be found walking in Love THEN there will be those who are "drawn to us" because of the Love of God abiding in our hearts.
One of the spontaneous fruit of God's Love in us is that the seeking one will "know" in their heart that we are not a threat to them - but, rather, a "safe haven" wherein they can open up their heart without fear of negativity or self-exaltation [reprisal]
of any kind.
...."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 13:4-8a The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that with each passing day Your Love is being shed abroad in our heart by the precious Holy Spirit - a divine
Love that is continually drawing those who are truly seeking you towards us. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."The love of God [the
Father] has been poured out within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us".... Romans 5:5 NASB
