Yahweh, Day 69
Day 69, Yahweh … Answering With Fire
1Kings 18:24 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
"Then you call on the name of your god, and I will call on the name of Yahweh. The God who answers with fire, He is God." All the people answered, "That [sounds] good."
"Answers with fire"... that was Yahweh's way of demonstrating acceptance ... consuming the sacrifice.
Man offers burnt sacrifices ... God will have nothing to do with our burnt offerings ... He is looking for our trust ... not our sacrifice.
Yahweh will answer trust with fire.
Intercessory Prayer: Oh Father! It is so easy to talk about trusting You … but then comes the test! God, give us grace and understanding so that we might honor You and Your Name with our genuine trust. People will see our quiet resolve and think highly of You, our Father. This I ask for Your Name’s sake. In Jesus Name. Amen.
