How’s Your Fire?
Jeremiah said the Word of the Lord in him just lit his heart up like fire.
Jeremiah 20:9 (GW) — 9 I think to myself, “I can forget the Lord and no longer speak his name.” But ⌊his word⌋ is inside me like a burning fire shut up in my bones. I wear myself out holding it in, but I can’t do it any longer.
If you think about the Word of God long enough, if you ponder it and meditate on it like the Psalmist David did in Psalm one,
Psalm 1:1–3 (GW) — 1 Blessed is the person who does not follow the advice of wicked people, take the path of sinners, or join the company of mockers. 2 Rather, he delights in the teachings of the Lord and reflects on his teachings day and night. 3 He is like a tree planted beside streams— a tree that produces fruit in season and whose leaves do not wither. He succeeds in everything he does.
You will come to a place just like Jeremiah where His Word is so strong in you that you can’t hold it in. You have to just let it go.
