Fire works to cause burns but excels to warm our food. With fire, there is the opposing force of good and evil. It is so distinctive because fire works in so many ways. Fire works not only in the sky for the reverent 4th, but with the presence that it can consume the tallest structures and can make paper act like a litmus test for ashes. Fire works to also cleanse the soul. The soul does not understand evil until the fire in His eyes pierces us to transformation and a renewed devotion to His ways. God is love and only fire can ignite the passion to love- the way that Christ loved us. True love does not turn its back on trials and tribulations, but heals and helps us gain true freedom. The shackles of sin can be broken with fire. FIRE WORKS in the most amazing ways. When this fire is ignored, then the more violent and turbulent fire comes to rule life. This fire is born from the ideas and hands of Satan. He knows that fire in its pure intention to cleanse the soul can be used to burn the person's very existence from seeking true life. He has and will continue to do that - He wants to place us in his fire- the death of God's creation in the hands of the most wanted robber. Don't run away from His love. Fire may hurt because it helps boil all that is rotten inside of us, but the outcome is great. Only then will we truly understand how to lift up praises to Yahweh. Only then will our prayer be consumed to be more than the cry of our hearts; it will be cry of His heart. What is His heart on the matter? Fire works to help us listen to the sound of His voice. His fire is not intimidating, but intimately Agape.
Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.
His eyes are like blazing fire, and on his head are many crowns. He has a name written on him that no one knows but he himself.
