Before the Fire Falls

Have you asked for the fire of God to fall on the altar of your heart? Then get ready! You must remember that God will visit you as an all-consuming fire–burning up completely anything unlike Him.

More and more saints are feeling that God’s Spirit is invoking in them a passionate desire and hunger for Jesus. On pursuit of Him, however, some are being met with the unexpected effects of their petitions–cleansing and purification.

Often we are surprised at what the deeper searchings of the Spirit turn up. How did that remain a part of me for so long? we wonder.

Thankfully, the God who searches us loves us. It is His promptings that draw us, cleanse us and change us. Our response to Him is simple: Just say, “Yes, Lord.”

HEART ISSUE: In Scripture God answered by fire, powerfully demonstrating His acceptance and approval of the sacrifice. He will visit us with fire if we want it for the right reasons. Why do you desire the fire?
PRAYER FOCUS: Father, in our desire for more of You, help us to be real when it comes to hindrances. We want to allow the fire to burn up all sin and selfishness in us. Strengthen us so that we don’t shrink back when You begin dealing with us. Finish what You’ve started. Amen.
