Are you ready for your God-given plans and projects to go to ‘another level’? The Lord is coming with a flaming torch to set light to those ideas and ministries of yours, not so that they will be burnt up and destroyed but so that they will burn brighter and even be changed in the fire. Just as fire and heat in a Blacksmith’s forge allow the transformation of solid lumps of metal, so also what you thought you were working on is going to be transformed by the fire of God… if you allow Him to touch it with His flaming torch.
Or… have you become happy with what you’ve got already? Is everything manageable and just under control as it is? Perhaps you are protecting something that God would – and could – totally transform, if you would only step back and allow Him to apply the fire. Yes, things would never be the same for again for you, your life and your projects, but didn’t you make the commitment to Him that you were ready for that before? Have you been lulled into ‘playing it safe’? Are you ready to play with fire – the fire of the Lord?
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe.
