Today’s Lion Bites word from Glasgow continues the earlier Invite My Fire! and I pray it deeply blesses you too:
THE REFINING FIRE
Are you really ready for the heat to be turned up? With more heat comes more refining, more purity and a heart that ignites, burning with a fire for Him. The Lord is a consuming fire. Will you allow Him to burn up all the dross, so that what is left is pure gold?
Others may not like (they may be challenged by) what you carry. Because of the level of purity they may not be able to stand around you. Nevertheless, sons and daughters of the King, God will use you if you choose to allow Him to turn up the heat and ignite you afresh.
He will use His radiant, ‘on-fire’ ones like lasers. Just as a laser is super-concentrated energy that can cut out diseased flesh (in the hands of a skilled surgeon) to allow for new growth, so He will use those who allow Him to refine in the fire. Choose to be one who goes through the refining: be on fire, be pure, be concentrated, be accurate, be like refined gold. Speak out the Father’s words of life and truth wherever you go.
1 Peter 1:7
…so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honour at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
