“The fire shall ever be burning upon the altar; it shall never go out.” – Leviticus 6:13.. (KJV)
The fire mentioned in the verse above is a fire that was initially started by God Himself.
Yet, even though God was the initiator of the fire, the priests were responsible for keeping that fire burning.
The scripture says that “it shall never go out”.
One of the means by which they were instructed, to keep the fire burning, was to put wood on it every morning…. “and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning” (vs. 12)
Wood was the fuel that would drive the fire. So, as long as the fire would have wood put in it, it would continue to burn and not go out.
Sometimes, we complain about being “burnt out”. (That’s a term that is used for someone that is totally exhausted from having overworked.)
In other words, we feel like we’ve burned all that we could, and we have nothing left.
That happens spiritually as well; and when it does, it affects every facet of our lives, in one way or another.
The answer for keeping the passion strong and the fire burning?
Put wood on it “every morning”.
Time in God’s presence, and time spent in His word, is Fuel for the Soul; and it’s the fuel that will never allow the fire started in our hearts, by God, to go out.
Father, though we have so many things going in our lives, help us to never neglect taking the time to put wood on the Fire that you started in our hearts. Let it continue to burn and never go out.
In The Love Of God,
