Stay By the Fire
“Sin will be rampant EVERYWHERE, and the love of MANY will grow cold.” Matthew 24:12 (NLT)
It is bitter cold in the world today and sin is rampant. What are YOU going to do to keep YOUR love of God from growing cold?
We must draw near to God and let Him draw near to us. If we don’t stay close to the spiritual warmth of God’s love and deepen our knowledge of Him, we will allow situations and circumstances to offend us and cause us to fall away.
The colder it is in the world, the more we must run to the Fire of God’s Word and receive His truth, receive His understanding and His Spirit. Let His peace flow in and through you like warm liquid.
You don’t have to side with the world. Everyone will have their opinion but YOU, let God show YOU the deeper meaning.
In all your getting get understanding.
Proverbs 4:7-”Wisdom is the principal thing;Therefore get wisdom.And in all your getting, get understanding”.
Understanding and love are directly proportional. The more understanding you have from God,the better you can relate to people and situations. Let God bless you with understanding so that you can love better in this day and time. Draw close to GOD and He will turn on the heat in your heart and increase your love capacity.
When it is cold outside we naturally turn on the heat to keep ourselves warm. We cover ourselves with blankets and gather by the fire. We do what we can to protect ourselves from being affected by the harsh climate.
It is cold outside but YOU child of God, Stay by the Fire. Stay by God’s side by running to the Fire of God’s Word and receiving His truth. Receive His understanding and allow the Holy Spirit to have full access to every area of your life. Let His peace flow in and through you like warm liquid.
“Come close to God, and God will come close to you….” James 4:8 (NLT)
Let Us Pray:
Father, thank You for speaking to me. It is cold and dark in this world. I draw near to You. Enlarge my heart and keep my love warm God. Don’t let me grow cold and callous. Help me stay by the warmth of Your presence and in Your Word. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and be glorified in me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
