Let the Word Burn in Your Heart!

Every time Jehudi finished reading three or four columns, the king would tell him to cut them off with his penknife and throw them in the fire. Elnathan, Delaiah, and Gemariah begged the king not to burn the scroll, but he ignored them, and soon there was nothing left of it.The king and his servants listened to what was written on the scroll, but they were not the least bit afraid, and they did not tear their clothes in sorrow.

Jeremiah 36:23-25

When you hear the Word of God and still have no faith you are tempted to do what this king did. He heard the Word and then ripped out the pages and burned them in the fire. And it says he did not fear God!

Don't forget that the Bible also says that the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom. So a wise man fears God and acts accordingly. A fool relaxes in God's grace and mercy and has no concern for whether or not he is offending the Almighty Creator. But don't forget that a just and loving God created gravity which will dash you to your death if you jump off a tall building, He gave you His Word so you will not be destroyed by the sin that seeks to kill you!

So instead of throwing the Word of God in the fire after you hear it, let it burn in your heart and draw you back to Him.

And if you do not fear God, then you are not wise and indeed you are a fool. Receive the Word of God with a fear that is appropriate and stand in the awesome presence of the Creator of everything that is!

"Lord Jesus, I stand today in awe of You and Your Glorious Almighty presence. And may I be one of those who Praise Your Holy Name Forever. Amen."
