FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
"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
IT IS FEAR THAT SEEKS TO MAINTAIN CONTROL
Words of Prophecy:
*____"True" love NEVER
seeks to control another - at ANY time.
...."Love [God's Love in us]....is not arrogant, does not act unbecomingly;
it does not seek its own".... 1 Corinthians 13:4-5 NASB
...."Just as I loo have loved you, so you too should love one another".... John 13:34b The Amplified Translation
____In a life filled with "fear" [and pride], maintaining "control" over one's life [or the lives of others] is EVERYTHING [all-consuming] in
their desperate attempt to establish "security" in their heart [through self-exaltation] - a security that is both false and temporary.
freedom from danger, risk; freedom from care, anxiety, or doubt; well-founded confidence; something that secures or makes safe [in this case, in one's "own" thinking through pride and deception working in their heart];
____...."Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you".... Luke 6:27-28 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
____ Father, we thank You and praise You that we are a people whose hearts are "wholly given" to You - a people who have forsaken control of our lives [and control over
the lives of others in our "sphere of existence"] for we have a deep and abiding revelation that we have been purchased with a great price that we might NO LONGER live for ourselves but only for the carrying out of Your highest Will
and purposes. And we declare it DONE in Jesus' Name, to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
____...."and He [Jesus] died for all, so that
they who live might no longer live [choose] for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf".... 2 Corinthians 5:15 NASB
