|A Holy Hunger For You|
|A Holy Hunger For You
Lord, create in me... a holy hunger for You and fan it each day like a fire, Till I'm totally dissatisfied with the things of this earth and Your glory is my utmost desire.
Let me seek Your face, Your honor and wisdom till my soul is consumed by your flame. Let me inhale your Presence... wanting more every breath so I'll exhale the truth of your name.
May I wake every day with a renewing of passion and not be content with what You did in the past. For Your glory is more than a trophy to hold in the hope that its memory will last.
Lord, fill me with joy... inexpressible joy from the depths of Your heart's flowing treasures. For I've found true happiness isn't held in my hands but in the spiritual I cannot measure.
Pour yourself out to me... like only You can and I will grow wanting more of Your glory, Manifested to me through the Word in my life and written into my life story.
Let me die to myself and my selfish desires so that righteousness overflows from within. Till You're the last thought I have at the close of each day and the first thought as each new day begins. Amen

I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. Galatians 2:20 NKJV

Let The Fire Fall
In the Bible, fire is used a number of times to de- scribe the power of Almighty God. It is used too, in the old testament in offering sacrifices to God. Noah built an altar to the Lord and offered burnt offerings to the Lord when they were finally able to come out of the ark and when God smelled the sweet savor of the sacrifice He said in His heart that He would not again curse the ground for man's sake and He made a covenant with Noah that He would never again destroy the earth with floods. Gen. Chapters 8-9.
Fire was also used to show forth the mighty power of God. When Moses was trying to get Pharoah to release the Israelites and let them leave the land of Egypt and Pharoah refused, God sent plagues upon Egypt. When Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven, God sent thunder and hail and fire. Exo. 9:23
Fire from God also showed His approval. In Lev. 9:24 And there came a fire out from before the Lord, and consumed upon the altar the burnt offering and the fat....
Fire was also used figuratively to show God's protec- tion as well as to show His vegeance. Zech. 2:5 and in Heb. 12:29.
Fire was used to describe the time of Christ's coming. Mal.3:2 But who may abide the day of His coming? And who shall stand when He appeareth? For He is like a refiner's fire, and like Fullers' soap.
Then on the day of Pentecost, Acts. 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. Verse 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. Fire was also used to signify purification. Isa.6: 6-7. In Isaiah's vision.
Again in Mat. 25:41 Then shall He say unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlast- ing fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. He is refering to the fires of hell where those who have refused to believe on Him will be cast into along with satan.
We who are God's children need to pray and seek for the fire of His Holy Ghost to fall upon us if we are to be strong and stand firm in our belief in Him. And if we want to see our unsaved loved ones and those who are lost come to Him then we need to pray continually for the fire of revival to fall all across this land and also throughout the whole earth.
Praise God for the fire of His righteousness! Pray God, let it fall on us! Amen?........

|HOLINESS AND HUMILITY|
HOLINESS AND HUMILITY
Someone asked a minister if he had received a second blessing since he was converted. "What do you mean" "I have received ten thousand since the first". Many think because they have been Holy once, they are going to be Holy for all time thereafter. But, O my friends, we are leaky vessels and have to be kept full. If we are going to be used by God, we must be very humble. Humility and Holiness go together. A man that lives close to God will be the humblest of men. Let us keep near Him and humble ourselves to Him DWIGHT L MOODY HOLY LIVING You called me to be a Christian. I know you want me to reflect You in all I say and do. You remind me to live a Holy life, pure and pleasing to You. It is so easy to be pulled into "little sins" of the world. You give me strength to run from even the slightest appearance of evil. Lord I am nailing my natural sinful nature to the Cross. When my faults, bad habits, and/or temptations creep in I take them back to You, where they are destroyed by Your power and might. I give You the glory for all. I want to live even a Holier life for You. I give you my total self and life to You...my all. Your presence is cleansing to my spirit and soul. Thank you Lord for helping me along my way here on this earth. (c) Shirley Updike April 28, 2004
