Let Us Hear The Voice of God and See His Great Fire!

Deuteronomy 18:15-16

In this text God proclaims that He will raise the prophet like Himself from among the people and that they must listen to him. God would do this because on that day in the wilderness they had cried out: “Let us not hear the voice of the Lord our God nor see this great fire anymore, or we will die.” That prophet was the Lord Jesus, and now that He has come we are crying out Lord show us your glory.

The very thing that caused terror in the hearts of an entire nation is now what we stand day and night crying out to the Father for. We are asking for his glory to manifest on the earth and more important in our midst, and more personally in our hearts.

Oh for the fire, yes Lord, send your fire consume everything that is not from you, come and touch our hearts consume every area. Possess your people we are not content to see you in a bush or hear you in the thunder. No, we are calling out for your presence. Not a token of you but the fullness of all that we can handle here in this life. We are longing for our heart to encounter that deep, deep, within in You. We are longing be awakened in the night by Your voice and to have our hearts burn within us because You are in our midst. In You is the only place we can find life. The children of Israel quaked with fear because they feared death. Jesus You are one who washes sinful man clean and makes me pure as snow. Why? So we can be together. Lover, speak to me and cause the passions of my soul to be aroused towards You. We long to know the intimacy that Adam and Eve once knew, yet it will be even more intense, because we have been forgiven much. Now we have learned to love much; yes You who loved without limits have given us the desire and capacity to love You. The sound of Your voice and the tender words of love bring me such comfort and pleasure. Yes, I am loved and my Lover He is both great and terrifying.
