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
DEFINING A PURE HEART
*____A "pure" heart is simply a heart that is "wholly given" to Me [and to the carrying out of My Will] - above
...."Who shall go up into the mountain of the Lord? Or who shall stand in His Holy Place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted himself up
to falsehood or to what is false, nor sworn deceitfully. [Matt. 5:8.] He shall receive blessing from the Lord and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation [description] of those who seek Him [who inquire of and for Him and of necessity
require Him], who seek Your face, [O God of] Jacob. Selah [pause, and think of that] [Ps. 42:1]!".... Psalms 24:3-6 The Amplified Translation
____A revelation of the Truth [no
matter how convicting] is ALWAYS good news to a pure heart.
____...."Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see [both know and understand] God"....
Matthew 5:8 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You that You have created within us a pure heart that we might be found
standing "high above" the darkness below as we carry out Your Will with pin-point accuracy. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right, persevering, and steadfast spirit within me.... Restore to me the joy of Your salvation and uphold me with a willing spirit".... Psalms 51:10, 12 The Amplified Translation
