5. Fire

For our God is a devouring fire. Hebrews 12:29

Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. Acts 2:3

The cloud of the Lord hovered over the Tabernacle during the day, and at night fire glowed inside the cloud so the whole family of Israel could see it. This continued throughout all their journeys. Exodus 40:38


Fire appears throughout the Bible as a way of that the presence of God is represented to and on his people. Fire has an uncontrollable life and vitality about it. It consumes. It sears. It refines. It ignites. It radiates. It glows.

What would you like God to ignite in you? How does fire invite you to worship God?


May the symbol of fire inspire our desire to be set alight by the presence of God, to have the Holy Spirit’s light and heat and power present within our hearts.
