Deuteronomy 4:24 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Deuteronomy 4:24

For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God. 


I have been thinking about fire the past few days, about how it changes or consumes things I might throw into it. So, if I say I am on fire for the Lord, but things aren’t changing, am I really on fire?? If I’m all talk and no walk, what’s really happening?? When I throw a piece of wood on the fire, it is never the same again. It has been changed forever, and the writer of Hebrews says our God is a consuming fire!! So, if I have a personal relationship with Him, then I should also be changed forever!!


Secondly, fire will go out without more fuel being put on it!! The spiritual fire feeds off of prayer, Bible reading, Godly love, fellowship, and fasting. So, I have to make sure I am putting those spiritual logs on the fire so that it does not burn out!!


It’s easy to get sidetracked with daily life and forget or be too tired, but that’s when I have to fight for it more and be willing to sacrifice a little time to keep those embers burning!! If I’m not on fire for God, then I’m in danger of burning with worldly passions: greed, anger, lust, selfishness, pride, etc. These are fires as well, and they will quickly consume your life if you don’t put those fires out quickly!!


It doesn’t matter the size of the flame, but it does matter who or what you’re on fire for!!! Be encouraged and let’s strike a match today!!!!!!!


I love you all, God bless, and glory to God, our consuming fire!!!!
