FIRE BY NIGHT

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
LOVE NEVER "TIRES"
Words of prophecy:
* The exercising of faith [which is activated and energized by My Love] supersedes the force of fear in one's life [both in the life of
the one exercising faith and in the life of the one being ministered to].
____...."For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
...."There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror!".... 1 John 4:18 The
____Love NEVER "tires" [grows weary] - due to the continual infusion of "spiritual power" that is the spontaneous fruit of the heart that sets itself to administer the Love of God
[at all cost to the "self-life"].
____...."But those who wait for 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
...."Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and
does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong].
It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes
are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end]".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 The Amplified Translation
Father, we thank You and praise You that Your Love is continually being "shed abroad" in our hearts by the Holy Spirit - strengthening us and
empowering us to walk [dwell] on the "narrow path" of perfect obedience. We thank You and praise You that this "abiding" Love working within us [and through us] is continually glorifying You to the greatest degree as we walk out our remaining days in this
earth. For this is truly the deepest desire of our hearts - along with knowing You as You truly are in the fullness of Your Majesty, and we proclaim these things DONE, in the Name of Jesus. Amen.
