Reigning Rainbows Devotional (Matt. 13:16) – 22 of 52
Song pick of the week: https://youtu.be/HYompTPEoXg “Set The World On Fire” by Britt Nicole
A “rainbow” painted just for you: Heart Ablaze – And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, he interpreted to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning himself. Luke 24:27 (ESV)
Good golly did you read that WILD verse?! I am most certainly going to locate that sermon tape in heavens archives when I get there!
Luke 24 records the journey of two men not only physically but spiritually too I believe. Luke 24:22-24 records that these men had previously received an amazing report about the resurrection of Jesus. But it was not until they walked with Jesus that what they knew in their heads was brought to life in their hearts. Luke 24:32 (NLT) They said to each other, “Didn’t our hearts burn within us as he talked with us on the road and explained the Scriptures to us?”
Later Luke 24:34 records these men exclaiming the Truth of Jesus that they had already previously been told but only now had it taken root! The difference was their encounter with God Himself. Having walked with Jesus, the Truth they had known came ALIVE, setting their hearts ablaze with a fire that could not be contained! His Spirit can bring alive in our heart a Truth we only but knew in our head.
Job 32:8 tells us, But it is the spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand. Today let’s begin in prayer and in His Word that as we read Him, He read us so that the Holy Spirit might ignite in us a craving for Truth. May the breath of the Almighty breathe on that spark and send it into a roaring flame that just cannot be contained! Oh that the warmth of His love from His Light within us would set our hearts ablaze drawing all men to experience Him!
Build A Rainbow Bridge: (Deut. 6:6-9)
MEMORIZE: Luke 24:27 with someone
PRAY/READ: Psalm 119 with someone this week
DISCUSS: How have you witnessed His spark in others that has ignited your craving for more of Him?
ACT: Share your spark. Each day this week write a secret encouraging note for someone to find or bring them a spontaneous special snack, offer a kind word or no word maybe in a situation where a sassy response feels provoked. If you have (grand)children involve them in hatching plans to spread the Light you have inside you!
