All the struggles in Christianity today; sin, fear, sickness, failure, stagnation; whatever the name and however the state, are all because of the lack of fire. Being on fire is being filled, endued, and engulfed with the Spirit of God and hence possessing His qualities and abilities. This makes living a successful Christian life apart from this fire a near impossible task.
When a man despairs and feels like giving up, he has probably lost the fire. Also, a man that considers looking back or going back to his past has lost that fire. It is that fire of God burning within that provokes you to speak to the mountain instead of giving up and inspires you to speak to your situation and expect compliance. This was the case with Stephen who we see in our opening text today.
The Spirit of God causes faith to be imparted into our hearts so that we see no impossibility. Thus, no matter how many devils rise against us, being on fire gives us the edge and causes is to always conquer because faith would quench every dart of the enemy. This is why we see Stephen functioning in the miraculous.
Therefore, desire a fresh outpour of God’s Spirit in your life today. Let His Presence drive out every doubt and unbelief from your heart, as He fills you and imparts you with His qualities, so that you are as bold as a lion. Get on fire today and watch the enemy bow!
