    But as for me, I know that my Redeemer lives. In the end, he will stand upon the earth. After my skin is destroyed, then I will see God in my flesh, whom I, even I, will see on my side. My eyes will see, and not as a stranger. Job 19:25 WEB.The book of Job is the oldest book in the Bible, except for...

Keep the Fire Burning

  • Now when Solomon had finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offering and the sacrifices; and Yahweh's glory filled the house. 2 Chronicles 7:1 WEB.

    When the Israelites completed the tabernacle and altar as Moses instructed, God lit the fire (Leviticus 9:23). Then the priests were ordered to never let the flame die out. They were to add more wood to it each morning (Leviticus 6:12).

    Later, when they built the temple of Solomon, God lit the fire there as well. Then the priests were ordered to keep the fire burning continuously. There was a pattern. God lit the fire. Then the priests kept it burning.

    God starts the fire inside of each of us when we first come to Him. There is a holy spark inside of us, but we are to keep the fire burning. You can take an ember out of a roaring fire and set it on the mantle by itself, but it will soon grow cold when it is alone. If you place it back into the fireplace with the other embers, then it will glow hot again.

    Spending time with the Lord daily, reading, or hearing the word of God being read, and being around others who have the fire will all help keep your inner flame burning. Take a little time to thank God for the things that have gone right in your life. Pray, praise, and just invite Him to be a part of whatever you're doing today. That will fan the flames. For God started it, but we have to keep the fire burning.

    Adam and Eve lived in the Garden of Eden's sinless paradise, at least at the beginning. But, everyone since then has struggled just like us. If you have never been through anything, then you don't have much to share with others. So don't stop. Don't give up. No one promised that life would be easy. You can do this, and with God's help, you will make it through.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, please light the fire inside of me and give me the grace to keep it burning. I welcome You into my life Lord Jesus. Shine Your love through me. Teach me all about You. I want to know every detail. Please guide my steps. Open the doors that I should go through, and close the doors that I should stay out of. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "So they took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him, crying out, 'Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord, even the King of Israel!'
