"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
AN ABIDING OBEDIENCE PRODUCES AN ABOUNDING GRACE IN ONE'S LIFE
Words of prophecy:
*____Blessed - with blessings they cannot contain - are those who enter [through a steadfast faith, love and obedience] into the "Promised Land" [the fullness of Kingdom-living]
in this season.
____ ...."For a day in Your courts is better than a thousand [outside.] I would rather stand at the threshold of the house of my God than dwell in the tents of wickedness. For the LORD
God is a sun and shield; The LORD gives grace and glory; No good thing does He withhold from those who walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, how blessed is the man/woman who trusts in You!".... Psalms 84:10-12 NASB
...."'For behold, the day is coming, burning like a furnace; and all the arrogant and every evildoer will be chaff; and the day that is coming will set them ablaze, says the LORD of hosts, so that it will leave them neither root nor
branch. But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings; and you will go forth and skip about like calves from the stall. You will tread down the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the
day which I am preparing,' says the LORD of hosts".... Malachi 4:1-3 NASB
...."When the LORD brought back the captive ones of Zion, we were like those who dream.
Then our mouth was filled with laughter and our tongue with joyful shouting; Then they said among the nations, "The Lord has done great things for them.' The LORD has done great things for us; We are glad...... Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful
shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying [his] bag of seed, shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves [with him.]".... Psalms 126:1-6 NASB
"perfect obedience" - receiving
a revelation of the Father's Will, and then carrying out that Will in the timing [unction] and power of the Holy Spirit - alone [through the continual exercising of an absolute faith working through a perfect love];
"abound" - to occur or exist in great quantities; to be rich or well supplied; to be filled;
Latin:"abundare" - to overflow;
...."God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that always having all sufficiency in everything, you may have an abundance for every good deed [true Kingdom work]".... 2 Corinthians 9:8 NASB
...."But seek [aim at and strive after] first of all His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right]".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
____An "abiding" [dwelling in the place
of a continual] obedience produces an "abounding" Grace in one's life.
Prayer of Proclamation:
we thank You and praise You for the superabundance of Grace that is readily available for us to access. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
Grace [which is summed up in My Word and My Spirit - Who is the Spirit of Grace] is sufficient [all-sufficient] for you".... 2 Corinthians 12:9 NASB
____ ...."Therefore being justified by faith, we have
peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this Grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God".... Romans 5:1-2 KJV
