FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
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:
Be "still" [in faith and peace] and KNOW that I am God [gain a deep, deep revelation of the spiritual reality of Who I truly am]!
"still"- remaining in place or at rest; motionless; free from sound or
noise; free from turbulence or commotion;
...."Be still, and know that I [am] God".... Psalms 46:10 NASB
...."I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart"... Jeremiah 24:7 NASB
"If because of the sabbath [rest], you turn your foot from doing your OWN pleasure on My holy day, and call the sabbath a delight, the holy day of the LORD honorable, and honor it, desisting from your OWN ways, from seeking your OWN pleasure and speaking your
OWN word, THEN you will take delight in the LORD, and I will make you ride on the heights of the earth [Ephesians 2:6]".... Isaiah 58:13-14a NASB
...."Enter through the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and spacious and broad is the way that leads away to destruction, and many are those who are entering through it. But the gate is narrow (contracted by pressure) and the way is straitened and compressed
that leads away to life, and few are those who find it. [Deut. 30:19; Jer. 21:8]".... Matthew 7:13-14 The Amplified Translation
The continual exercising of faith
[trust in the Father and His Word] produces a "divine rest" - a divine rest [and peace] that sustains one perfectly [on/in every level of their existence] on the narrow path of perfect obedience.
"The place called Done" - is the place wherein one rests in the "finished" work of the Lord Jesus Christ [and the entire scope of the Father's Will - past, present and future] through
the continual exercising of an absolute faith love, and obedience. It is the place wherein the Grace of God abounds towards one - empowering them perfectly in ALL things.
Father, we thank You and praise You that we are a people who have entered into Your "divine rest" - a people who are found abiding in "the place called Done". And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
