I just erased a whole email that was not the word God wanted for today. I thought about what He has been conveying to me and it’s His love. His heart of jealous fire for us.
I have been reading Jeremiah and Ezekiel. It hit me how many times God expressed His anger and pain at how Israel had turned her back on Him. Chapter after chapter, He talked about what they did and how He felt about it! I thought, You are the same yesterday, today and forever! All this emotion You are expressing in these chapters is YOU!
For many reasons, I grew up very blocked on expressing such emotions. I’m not saying I didn’t feel their intensity! I fell under the environment of stoicism. That’s not God.
David exhibited this fiery passion. He poured out his heart to God, his anger, frustration and pain. Then he wrapped up his Psalms with praise. He just let loose. GOD LOVED IT! “A man after My own heart,” He said! Well, God sure vented in Jeremiah! He showed His massive heart and how it HIT HIM, the betrayal of His beloved. I was convicted.
I Thank God for sending Jesus for us!!
I need to free flow with Your Fire, Abba. Break through the strongholds in our minds and hearts and
Let It Burn
