Fire, Fervor and Faith! by Elaine Davenport May 19, 2012
But if I say I’ll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it!ut if I say I’ll never mention the LORD or speak in his name, his word burns in my heart like a fire. It’s like a fire in my bones! I am worn out trying to hold it in! I can’t do it! Jeremiah 20: 9
For many years, many of my friends seemed to have a fervor that I lacked! Oh, I loved the Lord and I loved (and still do) church; but I lacked a certain fervor. I knew them well enough to know that they were not faking, it was not for show, it wasn’t any think that they personally orchestrated. They had it; I didn’t.
I wrote for God, I served with a passion, but my fire was seldom seen. It usually was when I faced a challenge that no one knew about except me. And it often came at the back end of a self invoked pity party. I was immature spiritually , I wished at the time that I could do better and other times, I just did not realize it.
One day while in prayer I was inspired to start a Prayer Library. So, I did. At first, it wasn’t that easy. I handled it incorrectly instead of trusting God. Finally, I did and with little out of pocket expenses ( i.e.; gas money) , the books began to pour in. In fact, I got a call today.
More prayer days later and I really got inspired! I was inspired to read some of the books that had been sent. They are too many to name, but I am still amazed at the plethora of faithful servants who write for God and many I had never heardof.
As I began to read the books, I soon realized that their was fire in those books and it began to get in me! I changed.
All of a sudden I was filled with fire, fervor and faith! It is a super sized combo meal and I love it!
