Word for Today
The Word (51)-There is FIRE in the Word.
“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? ” (Jeremiah 23:29).
The fire in the word of God is better experienced. It may not be easy to explain to others how it look like. There is fire in the word of God. When you are sufficiently cleaved to the Word and you soak yourself with the word of God, the fire begins to burn in your body(flesh). I mean feelings of physical fire in your flesh.
What we need most in the body of Christ (the church) today is the fire of revival. This is what will drive away pretenders in the church. The bible tells us that God wants His ministers to be flame of fire :
“And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire” ( Hebrews 1:7)
Do not be a cold Christian. Wake up and experience the fire of the living God by staying with the Word. Meditate on the word of God day and night. Remember, there is no light without fire. The fire is in the word of God:
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple” ( Psalm 119:130).
Father, please, give me the grace to manifest the FIRE in your word at all times in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
