My morning drive is when my Father and I chat. It is during these times when I “see” some pretty amazing things, and “hear” what He’s saying. This morning was no different.
As I was driving, I saw fiery sparks move across the road from west to east. They blanketed the roadway, but were in constant motion. Immediately “My God is a consuming fire” came to mind. Yes! He is! I saw the sparks and then fire. In the wake of the fire I saw charred destruction, and then I saw fresh new growth spring up. As I drove and watched the imagery, I heard Him speak.
He said, “I AM a consuming fire. Understand today that I, the Lord your God, is He who also goes before you as a consuming fire. I WILL destroy your enemies, bringing them down before you. I AM burning away the chaff in your life, that which is not necessary for MY purpose, that which is hindering your walk with Me, that which seeks to keep you bound and busy. I AM blowing away the cobwebs of deception and doubt in your mind. I AM a consuming fire, devouring My enemies, but My Flame does not harm that which is mine, it refines it. Hold to My Word, I will walk with you through fire, I will refine you by fire, I will consume your heart with fire. Do not look with natural eyes, keep your eyes kingdom focused and you will understand the importance of My work. Partner with Me and trust Me to burn away and reveal the beauty underneath. I AM releasing the wind of My Spirit to move and usher in the wave of MY Glory. You are born of the Spirit, let My wind carry you and My Love sustain you.”
For our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29 NKJV).
I, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, will act for you with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm and consuming fire (Isaiah 29:6 NLT).
The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can’t tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can’t explain how people are born of the Spirit (John 3:8).
He is ready to separate the chaff from the wheat with his winnowing fork. Then he will clean up the threshing area, gathering the wheat into his barn but burning the chaff with never-ending fire (Luke 3:17).
