Have we ever thought of Him as a wild fire?
With a raging fire, there is always a tendency to control it lest it consumes us. And so often in our lives we treat the Holy Spirit the same way – in our lack of understanding of who He is, we try to dictate the extent to which He can move in our lives.
Through this reflection, I invite you to a paradigm shift and hope you may come to ask for the power to step away from wanting to curb the wild fire of the Spirit and allow His consuming fire to engulf you fully.
1. Unexpected: God is always about NEW things.

3. Unreserved: Declaring ‘JESUS IS LORD’ means saying NO to every other God
