Set A Fire

I heard a song a few weeks ago, that I just can’t get out my head.  It was performed by Heartcry.  The lyrics say,

Set a fire down in my soul

That I can’t contain and I can’t control

I want more of You God, I want more of You God

There’s no place I’d rather be

There’s no place I’d rather be

There’s no place I’d rather be

Than here in your love, here in your love.

I think about the intensity of a fire.  The heat from it burns from a distance.  Just think about burning your finger, it stings so bad and seems to burn forever.  I think about wild fires and the concept of firemen trying to get them under control.  I even think about the kids movie, Planes, Fire and Rescue, how the smoke jumpers jump out the plane to put fire walls up so the fires won’t spread.  Just the thought of fire seems so dangerous.

I have been playing this song over and over again and realize I want my soul set on fire for God.  I want to be so hot that I draw people to me who say, there is something about you.  I want the opportunity to do what God has me to do.  I want my soul to be so hot that I can’t be contained or controlled by fear, worry, doubt or unbelief.  I want to be so on fire that my mustard seed faith grows into a giant sequoia  tree.

Today , my prayer will be,” set a fire, down in my soul that I can’t contain and I can’t control, I want more of You God, I want more of You God.”
