"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
...."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
TRUST IS A VERY IMPORTANT FACTOR IN RECEIVING THE MINISTRY OF THE WORD OF GOD
Words of prophecy:
* Each and every one of My people must come to a deep realization [revelation] in this hour that all that I require of each one [regardless of what they are called to do] is, through an absolute faith and
trust in Me, to simply lay down their lives [on a continual basis] so that My Dear Son [Jesus] might be ALL in ALL - through them.
...."This is the work (service) that God asks of you: that you
believe in the One Whom He has sent [that you cleave to, trust, rely on, and have faith in His Messenger]".... John 6:29 The Amplified Translation
...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the
Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation
Trust is a very important factor in receiving the ministry of the Word of God - as one cannot "receive" from one they do not trust. There is a distinct lack of trust in the church at large [and, in many cases,
with good cause] the root of that being that many have not entered into a relationship of trust in their own lives with the Father and His Word. A heart that trusts God is a precious thing to behold.
...."How blessed [divinely empowered and prospered] is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:12 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You
that You have raised us up a people who trust You with all of our hearts - a people who have a deep and abiding revelation of Your Goodness and Trustworthiness. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
