The Fire and Hammer Dimensions of the Word
Jeremiah 23:29 "Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?"
The word of God is likened to
1. A fire and
2. A hammer.
Question is what are there functions?
One of the duty of the fire is for purification, you see if a gold must come out glittering and beautiful then it must pass through the fire, the presence of the fire in our life's is to ensure our purification, that is anything that is not of God is burned down completely.
Secondly the duty of the hammer is to break into pieces every hardship confronting our life's, family and destiny. Notice that the fire came before the hammer, yes it's important that your purity be in place. Once your purification is intact, God is then permited to handle every hardship in your life with out any interference from the accuser of the brethren.
I pray for you today, anything that is not of God in your life that needs to be burned for your glittering and shining forth in life, may the power and fire of God burn them. And every hardship in your life, family and Nigeria at large may the power present in the word break them in to pieces in Jesus precious name.
You are blessed...
