In the tabernacle, after God lit the fire the priest had the responsibility to keep it burning. God would not send the fire again.
Leviticus 6:12-13 NKJV
“And the fire on the altar shall be kept burning on it; it shall not be put out. And the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order on it; and he shall burn on it the fat of the peace offerings.
A fire shall always be burning on the altar; it shall never go out.”
Once God sends the fire we must keep it burning. If the fire goes out it is up to YOU to fan the flame. Many times believers and the church are guilty of waiting for God to send revival fire, when He is actually waiting for them to fan the flame that He has already placed within them. In the natural realm a fire has to be fed with more fuel or it will go out. The same is true in the spiritual realm, we have to fuel the fire that God has placed within us. God will not send the fire again. We have the responsibility of keeping the fire of God burning and ablaze in our lives.
Luke 12:35-36 NKJV
“Let your waist be girded and your lamps burning;
and you yourselves be like men who wait for their master, when he will return from the wedding, that when he comes and knocks they may open to him immediately.”
Thank-you that You have chosen me to be a priest unto You and for the fire that You have placed within me. By the power of the Holy Spirit, help me to keep that fire burning bright and may it never go out. Cause me to be watching, waiting ,and ready for Your return.
In Jesus’ name, Amen
