Check it out in Second Chronicles 16:9. What a fantastic God! He never runs out of ideas of how to show up in the most horrendous and seemingly hopeless situations because He’s ingenious in His creativity. He has at least five million ways of demonstrating the fire of His power that we’ve never heard of or thought of. So, why don’t we wise up and give Him more opportunities to put Himself on display? 52 The Fire of God A group of Otomi believers in the village of San Nicholas in the Mezquital Valley of Mexico did just that.

We did this with our eyes closed for an extended time, while focusing in 44 The Fire of God worship, in total silence, solely on God’s majestic splendor, pristine purity, and blazing glory. This resulted in a visitation of the Lord’s awesome presence, which was manifest in a number of different ways to His waiting people. Several, including the retreat leader, had a vision of the Lord Jesus in a long robe, walking between the rows of people while His robe brushed up against each person. It was in contrast to the woman in the Bible who had to press through the crowds in order to touch the hem of Jesus’ robe.

In His faithfulness He revealed to me that the explanation was in the following verse. ” The light dawned that this fire of the Holy Spirit was to burn out the things in my life that were un-Christlike. ” Repeatedly, I would either be convicted directly by the Holy Spirit over something in my life that was grieving Him, or God would cause others to correct me. It was a very painful, but necessary, experience in my spiritual growth. I didn’t have the full understanding at that time that it was an act of God’s love to bless me.
