"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
CONTINUAL EXERCISING OF AN ABSOLUTE FAITH AND PERFECT PATIENCE
Words of prophecy:
*____The continual exercising of an absolute faith [trust] and perfect patience in any given situation will ALWAYS bear the perfect fruit [result].
we desire that each one of you show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope until the end, so that you will not be sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises".... Hebrews 6:11-12 NASB
____...."the signs of an [true and genuine] apostle [apostolic ministry] were wrought among you [first] in all patience, [then] in signs, and wonders, and mighty deeds".... 2 Corinthians 12:12 KJV
____The continual choosing of one to "act" in faith, patience and obedience is, first, an act of Love [and trust] towards the Father [and His Word]. For "abiding" in this place "allows" Him to accomplish His perfect purpose - not only in the life
of the one standing in faith and patience but also in the lives of all those in their "sphere of existence".
"sphere of existence" - is not only one's "physical" existence but also their "spiritual existence"
- an existence that includes those they have met in the past [friend and foe alike] as well as those they have yet to meet, as they continue on the path to the "fullness" of their precious destiny, in Christ.
one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ [which is the law of Love]".... Galatians 6:2 NASB
...."But without faith [love and obedience] it
is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him. For whoever would come near to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [out]".... Hebrews 11:6 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____ Father, we thank You and praise You that, as we set ourselves to exercise a steadfast faith and trust in You, we enter into the deep
assurance in our hearts that everything You would have us do and say is for the greatest good [greatest Eternal benefit] of not only ourselves but, also, for all those you have placed in our "sphere of existence". Because of these things, we "fix" our gaze
upon You [Your Word] - for we seek only to give You preeminence in ALL things - and, in doing so, continually express our deep appreciation and love for You - and all that you have done for us, IN Christ. We declare all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name.
____...."But by His [the Father's] doing you are [already] IN Christ Jesus, Who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB
