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
WE MUST SET OURSELVES TO DO "ALL" THINGS BY REVELATION
Words of prophecy:
* Perseverance in even the "smallest [seemingly insignificant] of beginnings" leads to the manifestation of the fullness of My highest Will and purpose in the life of one who is truly seeking Me.
"Persevere"- to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly;
...."Whoever does not persevere and carry his own cross and come after [follow] Me cannot be My disciple".... Luke 14:27 The Amplified Translation
desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises".... Hebrews 6:11-12 NASB
Never despise [seemingly] "small beginnings". It is the Enemy that tries to set us up for failure and frustration by "encouraging" us to think about doing things "presumptuously"
that are not yet within our capacity [or even necessary right now]. We must set ourselves to do ALL things by "revelation" [in and by the power of the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation]. Thus, it is extremely important for every child
of God to simply start walking out each day in obedience to the still, small Voice of the Holy Spirit - continuously praising the Lord for all that He has done, all that He is doing presently, and all that He will do as the glorious days ahead unfold according
to the Father's highest purpose on all fronts.
In this most critical and glorious season, we, as true [faithful] sons and daughters, just simply need to focus
on obedience to [and, therefore, trust in] God. The Holy Spirit will do any healing and restoration that is needed [on every level of our existence], and He will also carry out a continually deeper work of the Cross - "a continually deeper work" that will
be necessary for each of us to enter into the fullness of our precious destiny, in Christ, in the glorious days just ahead.
...."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
...."For we walk by faith [in a revelation
of God's Word], not by sight [sense-knowledge and perception]".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
"Sense knowledge" - that which is perceived by what one feels, hears, sees or thinks based on their outward circumstances;
that which is perceived through the soul [mind, will, emotions] - apart from "revelation" in the inner man [spirit, heart] through the Holy Spirit - Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation;
Father, we thank You and praise You that as we are faithful in handling the "small beginnings You will move powerfully in this season to catapult
us into our true Kingdom-position and the fullness of destiny. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
