God is a consuming Fire – Day 5 of 31 – Reflection on Who God Is

For our God is a consuming fire

 For our God is a consuming fire ~ Hebrews 12:29 NKJV

God is a consuming fire! Wow, what does that mean? So far we have seen that God is Light, God Is, God is Love, and God is Holy. All these are qualities we like to associate with God. Now we see something a bit scary.

I have never escaped from a home fire, but I have seen some wildfires when I was quite younger back in Nigeria. They are quite scary. There is nothing cute about a wild consuming fire,

So when I think of God as a consuming fire, I think that God consumes anything that is evil. Whatever is contrary to God and is in God’s path of progress will be consumed.

God is a consuming fire! Evil does not reduce God! When God encounters evil, He consumes it and It becomes a tool in God’s plan of progress. Wildfire grows stronger by consuming thing in its path.

Anyone that goes against God can only help the plans of God. You can’t resist God. Any attempt to resist God will only turn you into fuel that promotes the purpose of God.

God is a consuming fire! If God, therefore, is for us, there is no need to be afraid.

God is a consuming fire! I can no longer be afraid of any enemy! God will consume all the plans of my enemy the devil.

As I meditate more on God as a consuming fire! I am more aware of why the fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

As long as you are going along with God, you are safe! If you stand in the way of GOD, you become fuel. I have free will but thank God with the free will comes common sense. It is wise to fear God.


Dear God! I stand in awe of your power! I recognize that I am nothing compared to your greatness. I am eternally grateful that you chose to love me and relate with me.

Help me, Lord, never to take your love for granted. May I never become antagonistic to your plans. I have no fear for the enemy when I think of your greatness.

Thank you, Lord, for giving us your name! No wonder demons tremble at the mention of your name! God almighty, I honor you with all my life! Do with me and through me all that you desire.

I pray in Jesus Name.

  1. I like the way you put, God consuming anything that is evil, including the enemy’s negative plans. Thinking of it now, I see God as a purifier being a consuming fire. There is no sin/habit/addiction too strong, as the Bible says mountains melt like wax before the Lord. I see God in this light with respect to molding and shaping us, how the more we stay in “fire” the less of us is left and more of Him and we come out as pure gold reflecting His glory.

    1. Thanks Bate, for adding that to it! When we stay in God, He consumes every sin, habit, addiction, attitude and more that we expose to Him. He does not stop until we are like Him! I love that thought! I know it doesn’t feel good on the flesh! It burns!
