Chapter 28 – Catch the Glorious Fire – by Ps Paul Quadros
keep the fire burning, we must go on still further in our
relationship with the Lord in maintaining a right attitude. Somebody
said, ‘Our right attitude takes us to a higher altitude to
influence the multitude’.
again in Ezekiel 47:5, when the man measured a thousand cubit for the
fourth time, it was a river that could not be crossed, because the
floor had gone down (so the water had increased) and was deep enough
to swim in. This symbolizes that our walking in the Spirit should be
so deep, that we are completely immersed so that our attitude will
become Christ like. In this stage, none of the enemy’s arrows can
touch us or hurt us.
see in the scriptures, David—a man after God’s own
heart—maintained a right attitude even in the most unfavorable
circumstances. King Saul was against him, and even a few of his sons
rebelled against him. We are also reminded of Joseph, who
maintained a right attitude while going through the painful pit
experience. Also the times he suffered when his own brothers sold him
to the Ishmaelites, and the time he was thrown into prison due to a
false accusation by Potipher’s wife.
are many more examples in the bible of men and women of God who kept
their attitudes right and thus maintained the fire and the call of
God on their lives. Finally our attitude should be the same as that
of Christ Jesus: who being in the very nature of God did not
consider equality with God, something to be grasped, but made himself
nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human
likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself,
and became obedient to death—even death on the cross.
God exalted him to the highest place, and gave him the name that is
above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee shall bow in
heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and every tongue shall
confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the father.
