Psalm 50:3 “Our God comes and will not be silent; a fire devours before him, and around him a tempest rages.”
The Scene: An eternal fire burning–symbolic of our God– a consuming fire Who is eternally vigilant.
Psalm 97:3 “Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.”
Hebrews 12:28-29 “Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our ‘God is a consuming fire.’ ” (See Exodus 24:17)
Whatever is not of God, one day, will be burned up in the fire. As Christians, God’s children, we are to spend our time thinking of those things that are of God and pleasing to Him–like studying His Word and spending time in prayer & meditation; not thinking or worrying about what tomorrow will bring.
Matthew 6:30 “If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?”
Our God is a good God who is vigilant to watch over us, helping us to be overcomers as He has taught us.
