"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
THE CALL TO FAITH AND PATIENCE
Words of prophecy:
* I have called each and every one of My precious children to continually call [speak, proclaim] those things that do not yet exist in the "natural realm" [their physical circumstances] as if they already did
[exist in the physical realm]! For, in reality, everything that I have called them to stand in faith for ALREADY does exist in Heaven [in My Heart] and, thus, it is "their" faith [love and obedience] alone that will cause it to manifest in the earthly realm
- according to My highest purpose in any given moment.
...."Your Will be done on earth as it is [ALREADY] done [has been established] in Heaven [in Your Heart]"....
Matthew 6:10 The Amplified Translation
...."Now faith is the assurance [the confirmation, the title deed] of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things
[we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]".... Hebrews 11:1 The Amplified Translation
...."[Earnestly] remember the former things, [which I did] of old; for I am God, and there is no one else; I am God, and there is none like Me, Declaring the end and the result from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying,
My counsel shall stand, and I will do all My pleasure and purpose".... Isaiah 46:9-10 The Amplified Translation
...."For our light, momentary affliction [this
slight distress of the passing hour] is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory
and blessedness never to cease!], since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal [brief and fleeting], but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting"....
2 Corinthians 4:17-18 The Amplified Translation
...."The joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold".... Nehemiah 8:10 The Amplified Translation
...."Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus".... Philippians 4:4-7 NASB
...."The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control".... Galatians 5:22-23 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
...."The signs of an [true and genuine] apostle [apostolic ministry] were wrought among you [first] in all patience, [then] in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds".... 2
Corinthians 12:12 KJV
The call to [faith and] "patience" is ALWAYS something for one to rejoice in - "knowing" [having a deep revelation of the spiritual reality
in their heart] that "the Father" [Love] NEVER fails to accomplish the "fullness" of the perfect purpose that "He" [Love] has set His heart upon [as one is faithful to "abide" in a perfect patience].
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have raised us up a people who seek to abide in a "perfect patience" - a perfect faith and patience
that allows You to fulfil, perfectly, Your highest Will and purpose in our lives - on every front. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
