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
THE KEY TO ONE ENTERING INTO THE PLACE OF "ABIDING" IN PERFECT LIBERTY
Words of prophecy:
* When in doubt [pressured by a spirit of doubt and/or unbelief] My children need to exercise a "conscious" faith [regardless of their present circumstances] - a faith and trust
in that which they "know" to be a "revelation" of My Word/Will.
...."for we walk by faith, not by sight".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
...."let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith".... Hebrews 12:1-2 NASB
The key to one entering into the place of "abiding" [dwelling] inperfect liberty is for them to keep their eyes "fixed" on Jesus. Basically, what that means is that we are not to take our eyes [or our mouth]off of the "revealed" Word of God [Joshua 1:8] -
and ALL that He is [past, present and future]. The simple truth of the matter is that the ONLY thing that keeps one bound by any of the schemes of the Enemy [whether subtle or severe] is unbelief - unbelief being defined as believing the Enemy's lies instead
of believing in the "finished" work of Jesus. There isn't anything that Jesus can do that He hasn't already done for you [and me] at the Cross.
The key, then,
is simply believing and trusting in what He has ALREADY done and said - because the moment one's faith [trust] is perfectly united [and it is the Holy Spirit, alone, Who can bring us to that place] with the Word [Will] of God [the finished work of Christ]they
will "receive" and enter into the place of "abiding" in perfect liberty - without exception. His precious children entering into the perfect liberty that is ALREADY theirs in Christ is the Father's deepest heart-desire - for it is from this place of "abiding"
in perfect liberty that one will gain superabundant entrance into their true Kingdom-position and all that that they were created for, in Christ.
Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (emancipation from bondage, freedom) [Isa. 61:1, 2]".... 2 Corinthians 3:17 The Amplified Translation
...."For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living
the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live]".... Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have brought us into the place of an absolute faith and trust in You [and in Your Word] - though the continual shedding abroad of Your Love in our hearts. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name
of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
