Acquiring the Fire


Jeremiah 23:29 says” Is not my word like fire, declares the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

The other night I was watching a movie called The Edge it was about this  Grizzly Bear that was stalking Alec Baldwin and Anthony Hopkins along with Harold Perrineau. In the movie the only way for them to survive was to kill the bear. In the movie Anthony Hopkins  took charge, he knew that as long as they had fire they had life.

And so I began to think about just how powerful “fire” is to our Christian lifestyle. When the enemy comes towards you and I we are to immediately give the enemy the fire, which is the word of God.

As long as the men stayed in the fire they were safe. But you and I have something else to go along with the fire, don’t we? God also told us about His word being a hammer that will crush anything that it hits. So imagine with me for a second, when you speak to that obstacle you are safe because you are surrounded by God’s fire then watch what happens next; for that obstacle not only died but it was destroyed and it can never come back ever again.

What do you have standing in your way that needs to be destroyed by the hammer of God? Don’t stand on the wrong side of the road pick up your lampstand and start making fire. Have a blessed day.
