FIRE BY NIGHT
By Glenn H. Jackson
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
FEAR OF INTIMACY
Words of prophecy:
*____The only way that one is able to overcome the "fear of intimacy" is to enter into an abiding intimacy with Me [through
the exercising of faith, love and obedience in entering into the "inner chamber" on a daily basis].
communication with Me in the "secret place"] produces intimacy and a supernatural affection [makes the heart grow fonder] - for Me and for of all those for whom one prays.
*____All "true" affection [intimacy] in one's life has its root in their fellowship and communion with Me.
...."Your people will volunteer freely in the day of Your power; In holy array, from the womb of the dawn [the "inner chamber"]".... Psalms 110:3
"intimacy" - a close, familiar, and usually affectionate or loving personal relationship with another; a close association with or detailed knowledge or deep understanding of another [in
this case the Father and His Word - the fruit of this intimacy being that His Love shed abroad in our heart will cascade down through us, affecting every other relationship in our existence];
of intimacy [with both the Father and "flesh and blood"] is something that every one of us must allow the Holy Spirit to confront within us - in order that we might enter fully into the perfect liberty
in this area that is ours, in Christ.
____The fruit of appropriating the victory over every last ground of the "fear of intimacy" within us is for us is to have our relationship with the Father and Jesus
so totally consume our hearts that everything else in dealing with "flesh and blood" relationships [trust, intimacy etc.] on every level will simply be the spontaneous fruit of our intimacy [relationship] with
____...."He who has My commandments [gained a revelation of the Father's Will] and keeps [remembers, exalts, honors,
magnifies, does] them is the one who loves Me; and he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and will disclose Myself to him ..."If anyone loves Me, he will keep [remember, exalt,
honor, magnify, do] My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our abode [have living and ongoing communion] with him [in
the "inner chamber"]".... John 14:21, 23 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that by Your
great and awesome Power [Love] we are free from ALL fear - including any fear of intimacy with You and with others. And we declare all of these things DONE [on an ongoing basis] in
Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
____...."There is no fear [mistrust, doubt] in love; but perfect love casts out fear [mistrust,
doubt]".... 1 John 4:18a NASB
