In the last few months we have all heard about fire retardant, the substance used to slow or stop the spread of fire. It is a valuable tool to assist with the job of stopping the flames, and so valuable with the situation our firefighters are currently facing.
But, whilst we are all praying that those flames will be quelled, there is another type of flame that we all should be fanning. That is, of course, the flame of the Holy Spirit. This is a fire we want to be burning right into our hearts, a flame that leads us closer to God and the perfect life He has planned for us. The question is – do you have something in your life that is interfering with the Holy Spirit’s flame, do you have your own retardant happening?
Lord please help us to identify and remove the obstacles that come between us and you. Light the fire within our souls.
