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
Words of prophecy:
* If one truly trusts Me THEN they WILL be found obeying Me - in even the smallest of details.
...."Lean on, trust
in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified
...."He who is faithful in a very little thing is faithful also in much; and he who is unrighteous in a very little thing is unrighteous also in much"....
Luke 16:10 NASB
...."Humble yourselves [demote, lower yourselves in your own estimation] under the mighty hand of God, that in due time He may exalt you, Casting
the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully [Ps. 55:22]".... 1 Peter 5:6-7 The Amplified Translation
...."We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience [Love] of Christ".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 NASB
The reason why many of God's children experience "lingering" problems in spite of all of "their" efforts is that they are operating from their "own" strength and understanding
[from the position of a heart that is not "wholly" given to the Father in the area that they are having difficulty] - and, thus, they continually open the door to the Evil One to "maintain" his mind-sets [strongholds of fear] and schemes in their life. Casting
the care of any "ground" exposed by the Holy Spirit upon the Father [as one draws near to Him in the "inner chamber"], and bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of His Will [Word] will lead to obedience in even the smallest of things that are "revealed"
to their heart - and this "ongoing" [abiding] obedience will, ultimately, [sometimes spontaneously] provide the solution to the problem[s] - without exception.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who are found faithful in both the "little things" and the “big things" - where Your Will is concerned. And we declare it DONE
[on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
