Would you consider yourself REALLY on fire for the Lord?
Or can you look back and see where you once were and now have gotten to busy or complacent in your walk? This isn't one of those .. off the cuff answers . give it some thought .. you don't have to even answer but ladies we need to ask ourselves and face what God shows us.. and then decide what we are going to do about it.
It is called 'delighting' in the Lord. It means that you enjoy studying His Word, you WANT to do what His word says and you enjoy spending time with the Lord through prayer. Some people get 'on fire for the Lord' This usually occurs in a brand new christian when they first accept Christ and they are 'over' exuberant. They go around talking about God every single minute.
This is why God had problems with one of the 7 churches in Revelations..
Revelation 2:44 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
SO my question to you today.. Have you left your first love??
And if so.. How do you get "HOT" again?
"The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart, O God, you will not despise."
Concentrate upon the sacrifice Christ made for us. Then think about how much love and care it would take to be willing to undergo and endure such things as Christ did.
Then I would suggest that you also think about the love and care God has for us, to allow us to do what was done to his son and to also allow us to be the ways we are to one another. Lastly, think about how wise God is.
Consider the wisdom in what he tells us to do and not do. Look around and see the consequences of our not following Gods word. If you do these things, you will find that you become more and more impressed with God and your want to worship him pleasingly will increase.
