"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
WE MUST BE FOUND ESTABLISHING OUR HEARTS
IN THE WORD OF GOD ON A DAILY BASIS
Words of Prophecy
* If one fixes their eyes on the "lower reality" of the temporal realm [the "things below"] THEN it is certain that they will remain bound to that "reality". If one is found faithful
to keep their eyes fixed on the "Higher Reality" [My Word] THEN it is certain that they will be found rising "far above" the pull of the Enemy that seeks to keep their heart chained to the "world" and its way of "seeing" and "doing" things.
Let it be clearly understood by each and every one of My precious children that Truth [My Word] is the highest form of "reality" that exists and that as they keep it [the absolute Truth of My Word] first
and foremost in their thinking it is certain that they will be established with both of their feet firmly planted in My Kingdom - and their glorious position and destiny, within it.
...."we consider and look not to the things that are seen [the lower reality - that which is real to the five physical senses] but to the things that are unseen [through faith in the higher Reality of God's Word]; for the things that are visible are temporal
(brief and fleeting) [subject to change], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting [Eternal]".... 2 Corinthians 4:18 The Amplified Translation
...."Teach me Your way, O LORD, and lead me in a level path because of my foes. Do not deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen against me, and such as breathe out violence. I would have despaired unless I had believed
that I would see the goodness of the LORD In the land of the living. Wait for the LORD; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD".... Psalms 27:11-14 NASB
...."Light arises in the darkness for the upright, [gracious, compassionate, and just, who are in right standing with God]...he will not be moved forever; the uncompromisingly righteous, [the upright, in right standing with God], shall be in everlasting remembrance.
He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting, leaning on and being confident in the Lord. His heart is established and steady. He will not be afraid".... Psalm 112:4,6-8 Amplified Translation
One could most assuredly call this time in the history of the world the "age of evil tidings". Those who "dwell" in the world [and who are thus conformed to its ways: pride, fear, selfishness etc.] are
constantly being hit with a barrage of bad news or evil tidings - and this produces a steady current of fear and darkness that flows into [and through]their life. We know that the "whole world lies in the power of the Evil One" [1 John 5 19]. Therefore, Satan
has ways and means of continually influencing those who still remain in "heart-fellowship" with his "world system".
Every man oeuvre he has formulated in his
darkened wisdom has its root in deception and fear. His plan is to cause people [including the children of God, if he is allowed to - through unbelief on their part]to believe his perverse lies rather than the truth of God's Word. Therefore, spiritually, we
will define "evil tidings" as those tidings that come to the believer directly as a result of an attack by Satan on a person or persons [perhaps someone close: children, family etc.].
Then, they are brought
to the child of God by some means with the sole purpose of getting that believer to both meditate and act upon the fear-filled lies of the Enemy rather than the revelation of God's Word in their heart. Since we know that Satan's plan of attack is to remove
the seed [revelation] of God's Word [Will] from our hearts, we must be found establishing our hearts in the Word [Will] of God on a daily basis. For THEN "light" [revelation]will SURELY arise to drive out any darkness [fear] which yet remains.
Let every child of God be faithful to enter into intimate communion with the Father and His Word in this most critical season - in order that they might come to the place
where they are abiding in a "total" trust in [and dependence upon] Him for ALL things. For it is from this position of "faith" that one will not only rise above any "evil tidings" that Satan attempts to influence them with but they will be empowered to do
whatever it takes to right the situation in the power of the Anointing that abides within them.
...."A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the defense of my life; Whom shall I dread? When evildoers came upon me to devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell. Though a host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against
me, In spite of this I shall be confident. One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold the beauty of the LORD And to meditate in His temple.
For in the day of trouble He will conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will hide me; He will lift me up on a rock. And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent sacrifices
with shouts of joy; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD".... Psalms 27:1-6 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people whose hearts are established in Your Word - a people who have both feet planted firmly in Your Kingdom. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest
