The Fire Wall

As I've posted before, I have a wall that protects me. I've talked about how I sometimes hide behind my wall when I feel afraid, or vulnerable. It's a place to run. And, how I've been praying to God, asking Him to allow me to pull out the bricks that are in my wall so I can see what's on the other side. I've asked Him to allow me to visit the other side of the wall, and asked Him to help me understand what my wall is all about.
This morning, as God and I were talking, He led me to Zechariah 2: 5 and this is what I read: " For I, declares the Lord, will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst."
Just now, several hours later, I picked up my Bible again and read the verse again. It's lovely. And, it got me thinking about my own brick wall that I've so carefully constructed around my heart. The one for protection. And, I'm wondering what it would be like to ask God to just completely remove my brick wall and place His wall of fire there instead, around my heart and my soul. And, make it known to me that because His wall of fire is around me, His glory is in my midst. I like the image of that. 
A heart of stone removed, this is His promise, and turned into a heart just like HIS. Hot with His passion, aglow with His glory, on fire with revival!
I've had a lot on my plate lately , and it's time for me to cut back a little. Time to give God a chance to fire up His wall, and demolish mine. Give up the fight, throw in the towel, turn it all over to God!!
Say That Again, God, you will build a wall of fire around me and you will be glory in my midst!


  1. Praise the Lord its awesome.
    Can you please answer me this question? We pray to the father in the name of Jesus. But can we talk to each one of the trinity individually during the day.

    1. Hi Andy,
      I have not found any place in His Word where He tells us to pray to the holy spirit directly. God tells us to pray to be filled with the poser of His Spirit, to pray for the fruit of His Spirit, but our prayer go to God and Jesus. The Spirit hears our moans and takes our longings and inner thoughts to God.


Thank you for your comments, I like hearing from you!
