FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"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
RISING ABOVE A "CYCLE OF FAILURE"
Words of Prophecy
* Don't look back! For "looking back" [apart from the leading of My Spirit] in one's heart will surely cause one to repeat [enter back into] the "cycle of failure" they had
previously been in. Focus on bringing EVERY thought captive [word spoken] through the proclaiming out loud of words that are in perfect alignment with My Will. For this will allow Me to expand the revelation [vision] I have placed in your heart previously
and also allow Me to reveal those things that are to come [by My Spirit] [John 16:13]. For it is only the "established" heart [a heart flooded with a revelation of My Word-Will] that refuses to look back - a heart devoid of the fear and pride [self-desire]
that continually pulls one down into the place wherein there is a continual adherence to the "lower [soulish] life".
...."Another also said, I will
follow You, Lord, and become Your disciple and side with Your party; but let me first say good-bye to those at my home. Jesus said to him, no one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back [to the things behind] is fit for the kingdom of God"..... Luke 9:61-62
The Amplified Translation
...."Remember Lot's wife! [Gen. 19:26.] Whoever tries to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life will
preserve and quicken it"..... Luke 17:32-33 The Amplified Translation
...."For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls
me".... Job 3:25 The Amplified Translation
...."But I say, walk and live [habitually] in the [Holy] Spirit [responsive to and controlled and guided by the Spirit];
then you will certainly not gratify the cravings and desires of the flesh [of human nature without God]".... Galatians 5:16 The Amplified Translation
Book of the Law [the Word of God] shall not depart out of your mouth [always be found in your mouth], but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For THEN you shall make your way prosperous,
and THEN you shall deal wisely and have good success".... Joshua 1:8 The Amplified Translation
If one "lives" [dwells] in the past [through the continual exercising
of fear and unbelief] then they are destined to repeat the mistakes [failures]of the past. BUT, if one lives and walks by the Holy Spirit then it is certain that they will [ultimately] find success and prosper in all things - as they continue to give Gods
Word [Will] preeminence.
If one continues to call [speak and act upon] the things that are [the status quo] just as they are [in the natural realm] then those
"things" [circumstances] will remain the same. The God we serve is a God that calls things that DO NOT YET EXIST in the natural realm as though they ALREADY do [according to His highest purpose - both now and eternally] - KNOWING that that which He speaks
[through a pure and willing heart - united by faith with a revelation of His Will] shall, ultimately, come to pass through the creative power "abiding" in [and on] His words - as they are released out into the "atmosphere" [proclaimed out loud].
...."As it is written, I have made you the father of many nations. [He was appointed our father] in the sight of God in Whom he believed, Who gives life to the dead and speaks
of the nonexistent things that [He has foretold and promised] as if they [already] existed".... Romans 4:17 The Amplified Translation
...."Let the weak say, I
am strong".... Joel 3:10 KJV
...."I am watching over My word to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b NASB
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who continually keep our eyes fixed [spiritually speaking] on the things
that are "not seen" - a people who continually call [proclaim] things that do not YET exist in the natural [temporal] into manifestation. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
