"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
MAINTAINING A CONTINUAL EXPECTANCY OF THE FATHER'S PERFECT UNFOLDING
Words of prophecy:
be found "abiding" in the place wherein both of their feet are firmly planted in the Kingdom [seated, in Christ, at My right hand] - for it is from that place alone where they are empowered to see ALL things [including
the Enemy's schemes] through My eyes.
...."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
...."And He [the Father] raised us up together with Him and
made us sit down together [giving us joint seating with Him] in the heavenly sphere [by virtue of our being] in Christ Jesus [the Messiah, the Anointed One]".... Ephesians 2:6 The Amplified Translation
if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God"....
Colossians 3:1-3 NASB
____It is of the utmost importance for each and every child of God to "maintain" a continual [and holy] "expectancy" of the Father's Will
[both individually and corporately] through a steadfast faith [love and obedience] - as it is ONLY faith [an absolute trust] that "activates" His power [Grace]

"anticipate" - to realize beforehand; foretaste or foresee; to expect; look forward to; be sure of [in this case,
trusting fully in the revelation abiding in one's heart];

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

to perform it".... Jeremiah 1:12b The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You for Your All-Sufficient
Grace - a Grace that empowers us to see ALL things through Your holy Eyes! We thank You that by Your Spirit we are a people who have "both feet" firmly planted in Your Kingdom - a people who allow You to unfold the fullness of Your Plan for us [both
individually and corporately] on a daily basis to Your greatest Glory, and we declare all of these things done, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
____....Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight".... Proverbs 3:5-6 NASB
...."God is opposed to the
proud [self-reliant], but gives Grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you....
