"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
ROOTED AND GROUNDED IN THE LOVE OF THE FATHER
...."In this most critical hour, it is of the utmost importance for all those who have been "striving" [in their own strength and understanding]
to lay all things down and enter into the "rest" that I have provided for them in the secret place of My Presence. For striving in one's own strength [and, thus, for one's own purpose and glory] only serves to weary [disappoint] the heart and, ultimately,
in their continued failure to succeed [through a misplaced faith and trust] in their endeavours, move to a place [spiritually-speaking] much lower than the glorious destiny I have planned for them in this final hour".....
_____...."the one who sows to the Spirit [Who is the Spirit of Love] will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary".... Galatians 6:8-9 NASB
...."those who wait for [minister to] the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles
[mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired. [Heb. 12:1-3]".... Isaiah 40:31 The Amplified Translation
...."For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that
Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; [and] that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that
you may be filled up to all the fullness of God".... Ephesians 3:14-19 NASB
...."Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us,
let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising
the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider Him who has endured such hostility by sinners against Himself, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart".... Hebrews 12:1-3 NASB
_____If one is truly "rooted and grounded" in the Love of the Father [faith and obedience] THEN they will not grow "weary" [become discouraged or disheartened].
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that, in Christ, we are positioned far above all discouragement and disheartenment. And
we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis], in the Name of Jesus - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
