A desperate cry begins the reading. The outburst tears open your soul to release yet greater longing within for God with images that reveal the manifest power of God’s presence. Linger at verses where the Spirit especially sets fire to your heart. Pause…ponder…pray. Become an intercessor before the Lord for your city or town, expanding to the whole world that needs your prayer to bring it before the throne of God.
Firestarters are at the beginning of entrance into the Word; Embers are toward the end. These could be your reflections at the close of the day after living the day’s passage.
The Holy Spirit invites you to that inner place where you are still and quiet before the Lord who loves you and embraces you. See what Paul does in 1 Corinthians 2:9 with verse 4.
