“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; “Jeremiah 23:29
God compares His Word to fire. Fire is a very multifaceted element fire can help and it can destroy
The same fire that can warm our homes, can burn it down; the fire that cooks your meals can burn you up.
Likewise the Word of God that brings salvation, healing comfort, also brings chastisement and rebuke.
Fire provides light, heat,and is a great purifier of gold and silver.
The fire of the Word provides light, so we can allow the Word of God to lead and guide us. The fire of the Word provides heat, so in the cold days the Word warms the heart with cheerfulness comfort and calmness. Heat also means passion we cannot experience an intimate and passionate relationship with God without the fire of the Word.The fire of the Word removes all that is false and leaves the genuine. Gold and silver must be purified and refined in the fire so all impurities can be removed. God is after the gold and silver in us, so we can shine forth; therefore we must allow the fire of the Word to burn in our hearts. May our passion for the Word of God be ignited today!
