Today begins a new offering to the Lord and to you. It will be an irregular sacrifice called:
The Fire of His Presence
It’s the result of a lot of prayer, repentance, and deep cleansing from the Holy Spirit. Actually, at this point, I am merely recognizing how much cleansing still needs to be done in this 41-year-old believer. Since the Lord called me out of my drugged stupor January 15, 1974 it has been a wild ride. He’s accomplished a lot.
But in many ways, He’s accomplished more in me over the past few years than he did in the first four decades. Minnesota 2005-2015 has been another wilderness experience for me, much like West Virginia was in 1978-80, New Mexico was in 1983-91. As you can see, stubborn that I am, it’s taken a little longer each time [because, of course, I thought I was in good shape].
Presenting yourself as a living sacrifice
“I urge you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy, and acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service of worship.” Romans 12:1 MEV
Silly me! I thought I’d been doing that. But then a sacrifice dies, and my old man was still kicking and screaming. So, I’ve been asking the Lord to kill it off completely. More and more I want to be a tool in His hand (the Master builder/carpenter/craftsman/Creator).
So in the coming days, weeks, months, and years, I intend to share what He’s doing. I hope you’ll come along for the ride.
