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
Words of prophecy:
"thanksgiving" - the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God;
*____If My children are truly thankful to Me for all the blessings that I have bestowed upon them then they will obey Me. For every act of obedience on the part of any one of My precious children is
an act of Love and thanksgiving towards Me.
...."Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and
hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God. Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Him to God the Father".... Colossians 3:16-17 NASB
best way for one to express their thankfulness is to, first of all, be found thanking God on a continual basis and, then, continue to diligently pursue the fullness of their precious Kingdom-position and destiny, in Christ. This ensures that they are always
glorifying God to the greatest degree in all that they say and do and it also ensures that they are being a vessel of the Father's "best" in any given moment to those He brings across their path.
Him [Jesus], therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name".... Hebrews 13:15 The
Prayer of Proclamation:
Father, we thank You and praise You that You have created
within us hearts that abide in a perfect thanksgiving towards You [and all those You have placed in our path] at all times. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your
greatest Glory! Amen.
..."Light is sown for the [uncompromisingly] righteous and strewn along their pathway, and joy for the upright in heart [the irrepressible joy which
comes from consciousness of His favor and protection]. Rejoice in the Lord, you [consistently] righteous (upright and in right standing with God), and give thanks at the remembrance of His holiness"....Psalms 97:1-12 The Amplified Translation_
