FIRE BY NIGHT

"Reflections Upon Reflections" [of The Father's Heart]
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
"EXCELLENCE" Words of prophecy: * It takes an abiding faith, love and obedience for one to both enter into the Kingdom and live by the principles found therein.
* In order
to walk in the "fullness" of excellence of ministry your words must be in accordance with My Will and purpose - at all times. ...."But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then
all these things taken together will be given you besides".... Matthew 6:33 The Amplified Translation
...."Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the
will of My Father who is in heaven will enter".... Matthew 7:21 NASB ...."But thanks be to God, Who gives us the victory [making us conquerors] through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be firm (steadfast), immovable, always abounding
in the work of the Lord [always being superior, excelling, doing more than enough in the service of the Lord], knowing and being continually aware that your labor in the Lord is not futile [it is never wasted or to no purpose]".... 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 The
Amplified Translation The "spirit of excellence" must be on everything done in and for the Kingdom. "excellence" - the state or quality of excelling or being exceptionally good; extreme merit; superiority; ...."Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge
of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.
by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith
supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love.
For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted,
having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the
eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you".... 2 Peter 1:2-11 NASB
Prayer of Proclamation: Father, we thank You and praise You for Your Excellence [Goodness]
and we thank You and praise You that all that we say and do in obedience to Your Will and highest purpose is the spontaneous fruit of that Excellence. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen
