The Fire Difference

13th December 2020

Scripture Reading: 2 Kings 6: 8-23

Focus

“And Elisha prayed, and said, LORD, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” (2 Kings 6: 17)

When God opened the eyes of the servant of Elisha, he didn’t just see mere chariots like those of the Syrians. He saw chariots and horses of fire round about Elisha. The difference between what Elisha had and what the Syrians had, was fire. The difference between what the enemies of Elisha had, and what was available to Elisha, was fire. Elisha would have had no edge above the Syrians, but for the fire that made the difference.

Friend, crave for the fire of God to be in you and burn in you. Crave for the fire of God to be resident in your inner man and burn in you until there is no chaff left in you. Crave that the fire of God will find expression in you and keep the enemies of your destiny at bay. Crave that the fire of God will push you to the place of divine exploits which no man can achieve with mere physical efforts. Crave that the fire of God will baptize you.

When fire shows up, it attracts attention; when fire shows up, it burns what needs to be burnt; when fire shows up, it lights up dark places; when fire shows up, it creates heat. If you become a carrier of the fire of God, that fire will cause the attention of men to be drawn to you; if you become a carrier of the fire of God, it will burn what needs to be burnt and bring light to your dark places; if you carry the fire, it will keep you burning.

When John the Baptist would introduce Jesus, he made mention of the fact that Jesus would baptize men with the Holy Ghost and with fire. If Jesus has redeemed you, then you belong to that prophetic company that was designed to carry the Holy Ghost and fire. If Jesus has redeemed you, you belong to that generation that should necessarily use the fire of God to do exploits. If Jesus has saved you, then you are wrong if you lack holy fire.

Ask God to baptize you with His holy fire. Ask God to cause you to be a carrier of fire.

Declaration

I am a carrier of the fire of God, in Jesus’ name!
