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
THE FATHER IS FAITHFUL
*____Why is there so much "angst" in the midst of My people? Am I not faithful to finish the work that "I" have begun? Am I not a Faithful Creator? Am I not
worthy to be trusted? Truly I say to you, blessed is the one who will continually lay down their soul-life [mind, will, emotions] to pick up their cross to follow Me in this most glorious hour.
"angst" - a feeling of anxiety or apprehension [fear] often accompanied by depression;
those also who suffer according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a faithful Creator in doing what is right"..... 1 Peter 4:19 NASB
...."Then Jesus said
to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it".... Matthew 16:24-25 NASB
____The Father IS faithful to finish "perfectly" the marvelous work that "HE" has begun in each one of His precious children.
may the God of peace Himself sanctify you through and through [separate you from profane things, make you pure and wholly consecrated to God]; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved sound and complete [and found] blameless at the coming of our
Lord Jesus Christ (the Messiah). Faithful is He Who is calling you [to Himself] and utterly trustworthy, and He will also do it [fulfill His call by hallowing and keeping you]".... 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 The Amplified Translation
Prayer of Proclamation:
____Father, we thank You and praise You for Your Faithfulness. We thank You and praise You, also, that You are working a marvellous work within us - a
marvellous work that will prepare us perfectly to both enter into and fulfil our precious Kingdom-destiny, in Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.
...."His [the Father's] lovingkindness [mercy] is great toward us, and the
truth [faithfulness, trustworthiness] of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD!".... Psalm 117:2 NASB ____
