Power In Perilous Times By Pastor Lew Pizzala

 Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.”    2 Timothy 1:6

In the last days we will face “perilous times.” The word means: “difficult times; or seasons of peril.” However there is a power that God would have us to walk in. This power is conditional and there are certain things we must do to operate in it. First, we have to stir up the gift. Literally, we are to “kindle afresh the fire of God.” If Satan can make you become a lover of self or a lover of money etc. he can blow that flame of passion out. Once the fire is blown out we become timid and lethargic, shrinking back from spiritual service. So, Paul tells Timothy to “kindle afresh the flame of God.” The responsibility is upon you. You are only as hot in God as you choose to be. It will takes a hot flame to persevere in the days that lie ahead. It’s been said that hell trembles when men kindle. Every fire needs repeated stirring. God lit the fire when you got born again; it is up to us to make sure the fire is not quenched. In order to do this you must allow the Holy Spirit to move upon your heart with the fire from heaven.

Prayer: “Show me what it is in my life that may need rearranging in order to increase the heat of passion within my soul. If it is a dull devotional life help me to try a different approach.”
