Within the prophet Jeremiah's soul, a holy fire burned, an inferno of divine discontent. “Then I said, I will not make mention of him, nor speak any more in his name. But his word was in mine heart as a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I was weary with forbearing, and I could not stay” (Jeremiah 20:9).
Oh, the wrestle of a prophet's heart, caught between the silence of surrender and the roar of God's consuming word! In the furnace of obedience, Jeremiah discovered the relentless flame within, scorching him to speak, compelled by the divine blaze.
Reader, do you feel the embers within your bones? Is there a Word shut up, a fire untamed? Let it burn! For in surrender to the inferno, we find purpose. In yielding to the flames, we become vessels of the unquenchable fire, proclaiming, “Behold, the Word of the Lord!” Let the burning words flow, for they carry the weight of eternity.
