It's time to be fired up!

We are driven with a passion that is started by a fire. Passion is an inward fire of your outward desires. Get fired up! Whatever fires you up becomes your passion and whatever is your passion, that determines your desire.

Understand that we have to get the fire of God!

Fire is all through the Old Testament. Did you know that God used fire lead Israel?
And the LORD went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night.
(Ex. 13:21 KJV)
It looks like God likes to use fire. In fact, I was reading this in Jeremiah, "...His Word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones" (Jer. 20:9 NIV).

When the call of God is inside of you, you are going to be so fired up that you can't keep it to yourself. Jeremiah said, "I've got to tell somebody. There is something inside of me that is so fired up, I have to do something with it!"

God puts that fire there for His calling and His purpose. Guess what was in the upper room? (Acts 2:3) Huh! Imagine that! A rushing mighty wind and tongues of fire!

I believe that fire is a deliverer of the will of God. In 1 Corinthians 3:13-15, it says fire is your faith expression.
The work of each [one] will become [plainly, openly] known, (shown for what it is); for the day [of Christ] will disclose and declare it, because it will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test and critically appraise the character and worth of the work each person has done.
(1 Cor. 3:13 AMP)
When the fire of God comes inside of you, it either cleanses or purifies. Or, it delivers an atmosphere and attitude of doing something for the power or the will of God. It is a grader. (No! I didn't say greater; I said "grader.")

It is a teacher that grades the paper! The fire of God is going to grade your level of expectancy. It is going to grade your level of potential. It is going to grade your level of excitement. It is going to grade your level of passion!

Yeah baby! It's time to be fired up!
