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:
* Bringing EVERY thought captive takes practice BUT when it is practiced diligently
day after day it bears MUCH fruit in the lives of My children.
...." we refute arguments and theories and reasoning’s and every proud and lofty thing that
sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ [the Messiah, the Anointed One]".... 2 Corinthians 10:5 The Amplified Translation
...."And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You".... Psalms 9:10 NASB
...."In quietness and trust is your strength".... Isaiah 30:15 NASB
...."I am alert and active, watching over My Word [Will] to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b
The Amplified Translation
The Father and Jesus are ALWAYS there for us - even in the times of seeming "silence". The Word of God becomes new and fresh every day
as we simply "allow" the Holy Spirit to lead us and guide us and teach us. Many times in our walk we go through exciting times and, then, dry times. In the dry times, I have always found that it is best just to continue on in thanksgiving and praise - knowing
that a deep work [the continually deeper work of the Cross] is taking place, while continuing to "fix" my eyes on the revelation that has already been established in my heart. In the face of "seeming silence" this would be a very good confession [proclamation]
for one to make:
Father, I am excited! Thank you for your great Love for me, and thank you, also, for the wonderful plans you have for me - both now and in the
glorious days ahead. I declare, by faith, that I am exactly where I need to be right now: spirit, soul and body - and that "everything is right on schedule" concerning my superabundant entrance into my precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. I thank
you and praise you that You are watching over Your Word/Will to perform it in my life - and I declare it done, in the name of Jesus!
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You thatYou have raised us up a people who truly know the importance of bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of Your Word/Will. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing
basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
