REFLECTIONS OF THE FATHER'S HEART
By Glenn H. Jackson
[Exhortations From The Father]
Thanksgiving is the purest form
of "acknowledgement" - and praise is the spontaneous fruit of an absolute faith and trust in Me [in My Word]. "acknowledge" - recognize the existence and authority of [in this case, the true Nature and Character of the Father and His Word];
to show or express appreciation or gratitude for; ...."Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths".... Proverbs 3:5-6 The Amplified Translation ...."He who offers a sacrifice of thanksgiving honors Me; And to him who orders his way
aright I shall show the salvation of God".... Psalm 50:23 NASB ....."
It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing praises to Your name, O Most High; To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning and
Your faithfulness by night".... Psalm 92:1-2 NASB
MEDITATIONS . . .
ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it
day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

When We Talk [Consistently] About Our Diseases We Are Glorifying The Adversary *
triumph is our triumph. Jesus’ victory is our victory. He did nothing for Himself. It was all for us. Today we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. We should never talk about our diseases. When we tell our troubles to people it is always
to get their sympathy.
That trouble came from the adversary. When we tell our troubles, we are giving our testimony of Satan’s ability to get us into difficulty. When we talk about our diseases, we
are glorifying the adversary who had the ability to put that disease upon us.
When we confess our lack of strength or ability, we confess that Satan has so blinded us that we cannot enjoy our rights and
Psalm 27:1, “Jehovah is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the strength of my life: Of whom shall I be afraid?” God has made Him to be wisdom unto us. He has
made Him to be Redemption unto us.
If this be true, then Satan has no right to reign over us with sickness, disease, weakness, or failure. Every time we talk of our troubles, we glorify the being who put
the troubles upon us.
Our confession should be that God is today our strength, our wisdom, our complete and perfect Redemption, our Sanctification, and our Righteousness. We are the Righteousness
of God in Him. We can do all things in Him who strengthens us.
Today the Name of Jesus in our lips can conquer disease and sickness. That Name can bring courage and victory to the defeated and whipped.
