It burns. Do you feel it?
As I read God’s Word, the truth burns through the mountains of lies and confusion that our culture is busy building up all around me.
I’m a thinker, not a feeler so reading and studying God’s Word rocks my world. God’s word feels true. It feels powerful. It feels right and good.
The ‘feeler’ in me wakes up as God speaks to me through his Word. My ‘feeler’ confirms for me that this is my Father God teaching me what he wants me to know. As I listen, God’s words burn into my brain. I feel the truth etching itself on my soul, creating a desire inside of me to know God better and love him more.
I know what the two men were talking about when they walked with Jesus after his resurrection on the road to Emmaus . They didn’t know who he was at first, but when their eyes were opened, Jesus disappeared. And they asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us when he talked with us on the road and opened the Scripture to us?” (Luke 24:32)
I can relate. God’s truth has burned down to the center of my being and I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot! This Truth gives purpose to all the craziness in this world. This is Truth that I can hold onto as the storms of life rage around me. This Truth is filled with light and love and grace and peace.
Yes, it burns. And it is good.
