2 Chronicles 7:1
When Solomon finished praying, fire came down from heaven and consumed the burnt offerings and the other sacrifices, and the LORD’s glory filled the temple.
It isn’t often that fire comes down from the skies. Elijah prayed and fire came. Solomon in this case prayed and fire came.
Whenever fire from heaven came after a prayer – it was interpreted as God’s response and approval.
God is pleased.
I pray for the day when fire comes on a regular basis in the midst of our congregation every Sun.
To ignite hearts and fuel our faith for the journey ahead. That those who came will leave knowing they met with God.
For that to happen- I think it’s crucial that we gather for the right reasons- not out of routine but out of a sincere desire to seek God and to please Him week in week out!
This Saturday – let’s get ready our bodies, minds and hearts for fire from heaven on Sunday in all our services- burning up our sacrifices that we bring to our Most Holy God
