"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
Words of Prophecy:
one has a "revelation" of My Will [and all that it entails: spirit, soul, body, financially, relationship-wise, location/environment-wise and ministry-wise] THEN it is certain that they will
refuse to settle for anything [or anyone] less than My "best" - knowing [having a deep revelation of the spiritual reality] that if they did [through the maintenance
of self-desire and self-agenda] the fullness of My purpose in their lives [and in the lives of those in their sphere of existence] would be hindered [blocked]. As one comes to "abide" [dwell] in the place of revelation [My Presence]
it is certain that all that which is "unprofitable" [inexpedient] to their calling will be made clear to them by My Spirit - on an ongoing basis.
...."All things are legitimate, but not all things are helpful [expedient, profitable, and wholesome]. All things are legitimate, but not all things are constructive [to character]
and edifying [to spiritual life]. Let no one then seek his own good and advantage and profit, but [rather] each one of the other [let him seek the welfare of his neighbor]".... 1 Corinthians 10:23-24 The Amplified Translation
...."Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all defilement of flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear [reverence] of God".... 2 Corinthians 7:1 NASB
____To the born-again, spirit-filled believer "second best" is simply not good enough! For if one settles
for less than the Father's best - spirit, soul, body, financially, or in any other way - then the "leaven" of self-desire and mistrust shall surely allow Satan to have "control" of their life and ministry to a certain degree, and this "control" shall prevent
them from gaining the clear and abiding revelation they need of the Father's Plan [both individually and corporately] for His Glorious Church in this last hour!
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we proclaim before You this very day that we will NOT settle for less than
Your "best" for us in EVERY facet of life and ministry - both individually and corporately! We thank You and praise You that through the continual accessing of Your All-Sufficient Grace [in the "spirit of faith"]we will SURELY enter into our true Kingdom-position and fulfill ALL that You created us to say and do [in Christ]from before the foundations of the earth to Your greatest Glory. And we declare[on an ongoing basis] all of these things DONE, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
____...."For we are God's [own] handiwork
[His workmanship], recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined [planned beforehand] for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged
and made ready for us to live]".... Ephesians 2:10 The Amplified Translation
