Start a heart-fire.
Ask God to give you
A burning desire
To know Jesus
The fire of God must be demonstrated. It can’t be taught or explained. It transcends human rationality.
Fire is hot. It’s never lukewarm. Lukewarm Christians have abandoned God’s fire.
When God lights a fire in your heart don’t let it be contained because a contained fire eventually goes out. Fan God’s inner sparks into roaring flames until they burn up your dependence on religious forms and organizations.
When people claim their opinion to be “my truth” it would often be more accurate to say, “my error.” To say “my truth” is to falsely believe that truth is based on human opinion rather than on reality.
Our self-created “Me Hall of Fame” (often called a resume) can distract us and others from our shame, but it can’t unleash God’s power of forgiveness and restoration that will completely remove it. The shame-denying veil we wear motivates the disparity between who we are and who we pretend to be. That’s because we like Adam and Eve try to hide parts of us from God, other people, and even from self. Meanwhile God asks: “(Your name here) where are you?”
God hasn’t lost sight of you and the unpleasant realities you are trying to hide, but you have. God’s asking you to walk in the light — to openly, honestly, and verbally acknowledge where you really are — to freely expose the shame of your rebellious and hurting heart so that He can heal and transform it from glory to glory. Before you exit your life on this planet take time to consider and prepare for your final destination.
