BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Acts 17:16-34 , Psalms 10-12
To have a dying fire is to become lukewarm – a state where someone is in-between being hot and cold. In my early Christian years, I took my Bible everywhere, including the restroom, with the aim of studying to know more about Jesus. Today, I see many people leave their Bibles at home and fiddle with their phones during Church services under the guise of using electronic Bibles. If you now feel comfortable doing the things you did when you were a sinner, it just might be that your fire for God is burning out.
The following are ways to know that the fire of the Holy Spirit is dying in a Christian’s life: the fellow no longer has fresh revelations of God’s word, gets tired when he/she is praying or reduces his/her prayer time, misses out on his/her personal devotion and finds it difficult to participate in spiritual exercises like fasting.
My dear, losing ones fire is very dangerous because it opens one up to attacks from the enemy; also, God will spit out whoever is lukewarm from His mouth. This will not be your portion, in Jesus name. Check your life to know if you’re still on fire for the Lord and if not, ask the Holy Spirit for help today. Thereafter, pick up your Bible, study it and meditate on God’s word.
Father, please revive me today.
