FIRE BY NIGHT

"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
SOWING IN THE KINGDOM IS A MANIFESTATION OF GOD'S GRACE
Words of prophecy:
* "Sowing" in My Kingdom is a manifestation of
My Grace. It is a divine enablement in every way - with a view to fulfilling My highest purpose in the life and ministry of the sower and, also, the life and ministry being sown into.
this [I say,] he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one [must do] just as he has purposed in his heart, not grudgingly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able
to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed.... Now He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase
the harvest of your righteousness; you will be enriched in everything for all liberality".... 2 Corinthians 9:6-11 NASB
When one is faithful to "sow" from the place of a cheerful and generous
heart there is ALWAYS a manifestation of divine Love on that seed [Love for him and Love for His true Work - as well as others]. When someone truly gives from the heart in obedience they are giving of themselves [sacrificially] from the place of
the divine Love [and true commitment to the Kingdom] that is in their heart and, thus, it is very evident in that one's life what they truly value. In this final hour, all those who have valued the Father, His Word and the true Kingdom-works that He is establishing
throughout the earth will SURELY reap a great reward [spirit, soul, body, financially, relationship-wise, location/environment-wise and ministry-wise]for all that they have done [and continue to do]in obedience to the Lord.
...."Let him who receives instruction in the Word [of God] share all good things with his teacher [contributing to his support]. Do not be deceived and deluded and misled; God will not allow Himself to be sneered at (scorned, disdained, or mocked by mere pretensions
or professions, or by His precepts being set aside.) [He inevitably deludes himself who attempts to delude God.] For whatever a man sows, that and that only is what he will reap. For he who sows to his own flesh (lower nature, sensuality) will from the flesh
reap decay and ruin and destruction, but he who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season
we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint".... Galatians 6:6-9 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who continually sow from the place of a cheerful and generous heart - a people who truly value You, Your Kingdom-works - and all those You have placed in our "sphere of existence" ABOVE ALL ELSE.
And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found
and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking fine pearls, and upon finding one pearl of great value, he went and sold all that he had and bought it".... Matthew
