by night, to light for them the way in which they were to go".... Nehemiah 9:19 NASB
IT IS ONLY THE CONTINUAL ACCESSING OF GOD'S GRACE THAT WILL BRING US THROUGH
Words of prophecy:
* The "spirit of disheartenment" is a vile and ugly and potentially
destructive evil spirit BUT when resisted in faith the victory one experiences over it will "catapult" them into the fullness of their precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ.
is the victory that has overcome the world - our faith".... 1 John 5:4 NASB
...."And 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
Many in the remnant Church still remain in what could
best be described as "hand to hand" combat with the "spirit of disheartenment" [especially where holding fast to the vision/dream that God has given them is concerned] and are finding that ONLY the continual accessing of God's Grace will bring them through
on a daily basis [which is a very good thing for one to gain a revelation of!]. Although the "spirit of disheartenment" is an extremely "dangerous" spirit [and, thus, MUST be defended against continually], as one remains faithful to the pursuit of "revelation"
[and the "Revelator"] it is certain that the Holy Spirit is able to do a deep, deep work [the deepest work of the Cross] in the hearts of those who have made the "quality decision" to both pursue and carry out the Will of God, alone. Consequently, the harder
the Enemy tries to derail God's faithful ones from the "narrow path" the more they are "clinging" to Him [the Father and His Word] to survive ["live above" the attacks of the Enemy - and, thus, overcome them] - and because of their drawing near to Him in the
"inner chamber" He has drawn near to them - and, thus, the refining process is accelerated.
..."Draw near to God and He will draw near to you".... James 4:8 NASB
Father, we thank You and praise You that, in Christ [and through faith in the holy Name of Jesus], You have empowered us to overcome in ALL things. We thank you that as we abide
in the power of the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation] we are NEVER ignorant of the Enemy schemes and that, in the Light of Your Word we are empowered to devastate both he and his forces - at every turn! And we declare it DONE [on an
ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
