"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
NO ONE WILL EVER ENTER INTO A HIGH DEGREE OF "PROFICIENCY" IN FAITH AS LONG AS THEY CONTINUE TO KEEP THEIR EYES FIXED ON THE "THINGS THAT ARE SEEN"
Words of Prophecy:
*____Steps of fear and [wilful]
disobedience both fuel and maintain fear [pride] in one's life while steps of faith [love and obedience] - in even the smallest things - fuel and maintain a
continually stronger [effectual] faith [love and obedience] in one's life.
...."For God hath not given us a spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind".... 2 Timothy 1:7 KJV
...."However, when the Son of Man comes, will He find [persistence in] faith on the earth?".... Luke 18:8 The Amplified Translation
____No one will ever enter into a high degree of "proficiency" in faith as long as they continue to keep their eyes fixed on the "things that are seen" in any area of
"proficient" - well-advanced or competent; skilled;
____...."For our light, momentary affliction [this slight distress of the passing hour] is ever more and more abundantly preparing and producing and achieving for us an everlasting weight of glory [beyond all measure, excessively surpassing
all comparisons and all calculations, a vast and transcendent glory and blessedness never to cease!], Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal [brief and fleeting],
but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting".... 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 The Amplified Translation
...."for we walk
by faith [revelation], not by sight".... 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that you have raised us up a people of faith - a people whose lives are both established and activated [on
an ongoing basis] by the revelation knowledge You have placed in our heart. And we give You all Glory, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
