For the Lord thy God is a consuming fire

Duet. 4:24 says it all. The Lord your God is a consuming fire.
Are there times when you will look around and say where is God at? You will think He is so far away. Because you're struggling with a problem you just can't be rid of, even though you have fought with all your might to overcome, but still no victory. Does the road look to long or too high? Do you think to yourself I just can't do it, I'll never be able to have the victory? You say, oh well this is my lot in life. I guess this is the way I'll be till I die. Or you have said, life is to hard, I give up.

Well have I got good news for you. Our God is a consuming fire. He wants to burn up your problems to get them out of your life. He is waiting to consume your situation no matter what it is. It is all up to you. He is waiting for us to hand it over to him and when we do He will take it and burn it out of our lives.

Take forgiveness for example: We can say oh I forgive them because the Word says to forgive and I am trying to be obedient to the Word. But forgiveness must be of the heart not the mind. The Lord is the one that changes the heart. You see, He takes our hearts of stone and makes them hearts of flesh. When He does that He has to consume some things in our life. He has to burn out some things. He uses a refiners fire to make us pure. I have seen what fire does, it is hungry, it will consume everything until it is all gone. That is what the Lord does, He consumes it until it is completely gone, because He is hungry to bring you to the place as He sees you. His child redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. Glory to His Name. He brings us from Glory to Glory, from one level to another level. All of this so that He can prepare you to be the bride without spot or blemish, beautified for the groom.

So today let Him consume you. Let Him refine you. Let Him take you to the next level in Him. He has said You shall not be ashamed. What you will do is rejoice in the King of kings and the Lord of lords and praise Him for the greatness of His love and grace.

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt. 1

How important is it to know who you are in Christ Jesus? It is of great importance for each of us to realize and understand our place in Christ so that the enemy cannot enslave us. Not knowing who we are as a child of God makes us vulnerable to the tricks and schemes of the devil. Deception enslaves and places shackles on God's people. The only way to know who you are in Christ is to know His Word and to understand what is the lie and what is the Truth! Our worth is not in and of ourselves but who we are in Him. Our true identity is who our Creator created us to be. Our Creator knows each of us intimately and desires us to know Him intimately. Our Heavenly Father who created us and knew us before the foundations of the world loves us very much. His desires for us are for our good and not our harm, to give us a hope and a future. He desires for us to know His love, joy and peace in our lives as well as His freedom. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom! Whom the Son sets…

Know who you are in Christ Jesus Pt.4 (how the enemy entices the vulnerable and tries to silence the strong)

The enemy will preoccupy himself  with fantasies that focus on unlimited success, power and intelligence. He has a form of godliness which identifies with a haughtiness. The vulnerable will look to him as being strong because he seems to carry himself with confidence. This confidence he portrays is deceiving because it is not a confidence in God which is true humility, but a self-confidence conjured up in arrogance or a false humility. Those who do not know who they are in Christ because they are not in tune with His Holy Spirit, will put men like this upon pedestals and follow them, which plays right into the hand of the enemy, for it is this kind of people that the enemy encircles himself with. The ignorance of babes, those who are not clothed in Jesus (the armor of God), the insecure, and co-dependents he will use to his advantage for they are his enablers and his followers. Keeping the vulnerable under his control is a twisted mind game he plays as he continually misrepresents fac…

Light breaking forth!

Have you ever been studying God's Word and suddenly there is a quickening in your spirit and you have understanding that gives you deeper insight? That is what is called Revelational knowledge, or some will say a Rhema Word, which means the Word has come to life in you. At that revelational moment you begin to understand God's Word and it does pierce even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow and that it is indeed most powerful. Spiritual eyes have been awakened, and a deeper understanding comes forth. It is no longer an intellectual knowledge but a Spiritual understanding. God's Word is living and it is literally life to our whole being. When we read and study God's Word we should always pray first asking the Holy Spirit to give us understanding. For all it takes is one small quickening of the Holy Spirit in your spirit and you will be so hungry to know more that you will find yourself devouring God's Word like you can't get enou…
