A while back, I am not sure how long ago it was, I saw this verse during a sermon at church and it really stuck out in my mind.
Earlier today, I was going through my notes and I ran across these points that I had jotted down and I just want to share them with you.
“Wherefore glorify ye the Lord in the fires, even the name of the Lord God of Israel in the isles of the sea.” Isaiah 24:15
You can be in the center of God’s will and still go through the fire.
- Fire brings purification
- Fire brings prayer
- Fire brings preparation
- Fire brings persistence
- Fire brings power
- Fire brings proof
- Fire brings protection
- Fire brings progress
- Fire brings passion
- Fire brings praise
You are safer in the fire, in the middle of the will of God than in the coolness of this world.
Other Thoughts On Fire
Fire can either help or hurt the situation. An out-of-control fire can destroy property and possessions and even brings harm to people. A controlled fire can bring heat and comfort, it can be used to cook, it has many good uses when it is controlled.
Fire attracts people, that is why we need to be on fire for God.
Fire destroys, that is why we need to protect ourselves from the fiery darts of the devil.
