SCRIPTURE: And the fire upon the altar shall be burning in it; it shall not be put out: and the priest shall burn wood on it every morning, and lay the burnt offering in order upon it; and he shall burn thereon the fat of the peace offerings. Leviticus 6:12
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Yesterday’s mantle cannot handle today’s battle.
The maintenance of a constant spiritual temperature is critical to a productive spiritual life. God has no stationary position for His children; Proverbs 4:18 says, the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
The ideal situation is to be progressively increasing in spiritual intensity.
The man of God, Smith Wigglesworth, who was powerfully used by God to raise twenty-three (23) dead people said, ‘It is a tragedy to remain on the same spiritual plane for two consecutive days.’
So, if you have stopped going forward, you have started going backward. Backsliding is not only backward motion into sin, but absence of forward motion into God. The secret of constant fire is appearing before God daily in worship and prayer; there is fresh fire and fresh bread for each day. The reason is that yesterday’s fire cannot handle today’s cold; yesterday’s bread cannot satisfy today’s hunger and yesterday’s mantle cannot handle today’s battle. Every new day requires new grace. Go before God daily and early to rekindle your fire; never allow your spiritual fire to go out.
Remember this: Yesterday’s mantle cannot handle today’s battle.
1.Assess your current spiritual temperature; ensure it is growing on an exponential rate.
2.Become addicted to the atmosphere of God’s Presence.
3.Pray in tongues, for at least, one hour daily.
