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
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR EVERY LAST CHILD OF GOD TO DILIGENTLY PURSUE AN ABSOLUTE TRUST IN THE FATHER
Words of prophecy:
* It is of the utmost importance for each and every one of My children to NEVER base their thinking [at least, as their final authority]
upon "outward" circumstances or the limitations of the "world". For "faith" [trust] is defined as one keeping their eyes "fixed" [focused with great intent] upon the things that are "unseen" [by one's five physical senses].
...."when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith [the exercising of an absolute trust in God] on the earth?" .... Luke 18:8 NASB
...."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
...."By faith Enoch was taken up so that he would not see death; and he was not found because God took him up; for he obtained the witness that before his being taken up he was pleasing to God. And without faith it is impossible to please [Him,] for he who
comes to God must believe that He is and [that] He is a rewarder of those who seek Him".... Hebrews 11:5-6 NASB
...."And we 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
It is very important for every last child of God to diligently pursue an absolute trust in the Father in the hour. Continue to believe. Standing in faith will ALWAYS accomplish [ultimately] the goal [desire of one's heart]regardless of how one may "think"
or "feel", at times.
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us
up a holy people - a people who are found diligently pursuing an absolute faith and trust in You [and in Your Word]. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
