Open Heaven 11th August 2020 Devotional – The Consuming Fire by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
TODAY’S TOPIC: THE CONSUMING FIRE
MEMORISE: “For our God is a consuming fire.” – (Hebrews 12:29)
READ: Deuteronomy 11:26-28 (KJV)
26. Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse;
27. A blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the LORD your God, which I command you this day;
28. And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.
MESSAGE: Open Heaven 11th August 2020 Devotional
If you are not born again and you read the memory verse, you would realise that the God you are fighting and resisting is a fire that can consume. Although He is asking you to surrender your life to Him now, He can suddenly turn and begin to burn you when your time is up. If a person is fire, isn’t it in your best interest to be on His side rather than against Him? As a child of God reading this Scripture, you should rejoice that your Father is so powerful as to be a Consuming Fire. With the Consuming Fire backing you up, all your enemies are in trouble.
“A fire goeth before him, and burneth up his enemies round about.” – Psalm 97:3
As compassionate as God is, do not ever forget that He is a Consuming Fire. Some people say that the Scripture “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom…” (Proverbs 9:10) is actually not talking about fear, but reverence. Well, I think I have enough common sense to know what fire can do. Others can just reverence Him; as for me, I will fear the Consuming Fire and all my enemies had better do the same.
The moment fire engulfs a place, everything changes. The fire will consume some things completely and purify some. Being the Consuming Fire, the moment Jesus enters your life, every pain, sorrow, depression, poverty and ancestral curse will be consumed and burnt off completely.
Also, all your potential, talents and skills will be purified and sharpened for manifestation. Gold that has been introduced to fire never remains the same; its inner beauty begins to radiate for the whole world to see. Moses was in exile – a depressed man who led an ordinary life until he came in contact with the Consuming Fire.
Before Moses left this world, the whole world had heard about him and we are still talking about him today. I pray that the Consuming Fire will destroy all He needs to for you to be a voice in your generation, in the mighty name of Jesus. Everything He needs to purify for your potentials to manifest will be cleansed now in the mighty name of Jesus.
KEY POINT: Are you on the side of the Consuming Fire?
