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
NEVER FEAR WHAT OTHERS "THINK" OF YOU
Words of prophecy:
It is a most dangerous practice for one to think about [dwell upon] those who have been used by the Enemy as vessels of reproach and persecution against them. For the continual heart-attitude of all those who truly love Me [those who desire to walk in Love
at all cost to themselves] must be that their battle is NEVER against "flesh and blood".
...."Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual
forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm".... Ephesians 6:10-13 NASB
...."[Love] takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]".... 1 Corinthians 13:5 The Amplified Translation
* Fear [reverence] Me
- not "men" [and their prideful ways].
...."For am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please
men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ".... Galatians 1:10 NASB
...."Listen to Me, you who know righteousness, a people in whose heart is My law [Word];
Do not fear the reproach of man, nor be dismayed at their reviling’s".... Isaiah 51:7 NASB
...."Be anxious for nothing".... Philippians 4:6a NASB
NEVER fear what others "think" of you. For it is certain that, in any given moment, one will either be found "thinking" what the Father would have them think or what the Enemy
would have them think - their "thinking" dependent [rooted and grounded]entirely upon their "present" state of heart before God.
...."out of the fullness [the
overflow, the superabundance] of the heart the mouth speaks".... Matthew 12:34 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who reverence You and Your Word - a people who refuse to fear what others may "think" of us. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory.
