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
TIME TRIES TRUST
Words of prophecy:
* Trust in Me is the spontaneous fruit of a heart that is wholly given to My highest Will and purpose.
...."O Lord of hosts, how blessed [divinely empowered and prospered] is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 NASB
Time tries [proves] trust -
and one's concept of "time" is governed by either their faith [which produces "timelessness" - as one stands on the Word of God] or unbelief [mistrust]which draws one's focus to time and the "things that are seen".
...."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
Prayer of Proclamation:
We thank you and praise You Father that You have raised us up a people of faith - a people who trust You
[day in and day out] with ALL of our heart. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."Behold, God is my
salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; For the LORD GOD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation." Therefore you will joyously draw water From the springs of salvation. And in that day you will say, "Give thanks to the LORD, call on His
name. Make known His deeds among the peoples; Make them remember that His name is exalted." Praise the LORD in song, for He has done excellent things; Let this be known throughout the earth. Cry aloud and shout for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, For great in your
midst is the Holy One of Israel".... Isaiah 12:2-6 NASB
