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 ENEMY IS ALWAYS ATTEMPTING TO GET US INTO A "HURRIED STATE"

 

Words of prophecy:

 

*       A "spirit of double-mindedness" and confusion are inextricably linked.

 

"confusion" - disorder; lack of clarity; bewilderment; perplexity; uncertainty; disarray;

 

"inextricable" - inseparable; incapable of being disentangled; not able to be escaped from;

 

        ...."If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering [no hesitating, no doubting]. For the one who wavers [hesitates, doubts] is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind. For truly, let not such a person imagine that he will receive anything [he asks for] from the Lord, [For being as he is] a man of two minds [hesitating, dubious, irresolute], [he is] unstable and unreliable and uncertain about everything [he thinks, feels, decides]".... James 1:5-8 The Amplified Translation

 

        ...."For [our] God is NOT the author of confusion, but of peace".... 1 Corinthians 14:33 KJV

 

____ It is of the utmost importance for each and every child of God to step back [when they find themselves "inundated" with a multitude of thoughts] and begin to focus [through the eyes of their faith] on discarding the scattered and lying thoughts of the Enemy that lead to state of a "hurried confusion" - and replace those thoughts with the divine thoughts that are the spontaneous fruit of that which has been established in our heart by the Holy Spirit [Who is the Spirit of wisdom and revelation].

 

____The Enemy is always attempting to get us into a hurried state because he knows that if he is successful it will preclude us from hearing the still, small voice of the Holy Spirit. The good thing is that as we are faithful to practice bringing EVERY thought captive to a revelation of the Word - something that is best done as we slow our pace down both in our soul [mind, will, emotions] and body - we leave him on the "outside" in the dark where he belongs.

 

____...."When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul".... Psalm 94:19 NASB

 

____...."Be still, [in a certain and steadfast trust] and know that I [am] God".... Psalms 46:10 NASB

 

Prayer of Proclamation:

 

____Father, we thank You and praise You that by Your doing we are IN Christ - and, therefore we proclaim boldly that we both have and operate from the Mind of Christ. And we declare it DONE [on an ongoing basis] in Jesus' Name - to Your greatest Glory. Amen.

 

____...."But by His [the Father's] doing you are [already] IN Christ Jesus, Who became to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption".... 1 Corinthians 1:30 NASB

 

        ...."we have the mind of Christ [the Messiah] and do hold the thoughts [feelings and purposes] of His heart".... 1 Corinthians 2:16b The Amplified Translation

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
