the flame

This is a picture of the pilot light on our gas fireplace. IMG_0696Unless you look for the small flame, you cannot see it. But it’s there, and it’s ready to fulfill its purpose.

Can I challenge you today? If you are a child of God, the Holy Spirit has been deposited within you. He may not be visible to your eye, but He is with you, and He is ready to fulfill His purpose for you!

Maybe there are times when you don’t sense the fire inside of you. You just go through the motions and operate in a faith that seems dull of passion. Here is the Bible’s prescription for those seasons in our lives:

Fan into flame the gift of God… For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline (2 Timothy 1:6-7).

Fan into flame. You fan into flame. There’s a pilot light within you waiting for ignition. IMG_0697If you’re tired of the dullness you’ve been experiencing in life, it’s time to get on your knees and seek His face in prayer. The Lord God wants to meet with you, because He wants to bless you and remind you that you are His and you are called to a purpose. The calling cannot be fulfilled apart from Him; you must draw from the strength and resolve of the Holy Spirit. Let Him work. Fan into flame the gift of God.
