What Does It Look Like?

I have had many questions, asking what does it look like to be on fire for the Lord...As I was reading in Zechariah this morning, I feel like the Lord provided that answer.

"In those days, 10 men from nations of every language will grab the robe of a Jewish man tightly, urging: Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you." Zechariah 8:23 (emphasis mine)

Is there anyone in your circle of influence noticing that God is with you, and spreading the word?  This obviously doesn't happen overnight.  It is a very long process.  People may begin to notice that you are on fire for the Lord, but what they really want to see is what that fire is made up of...how long will it last?  Is it fleeting, just a 'feel-good' because things are going good?  What is going to happen to your fire when the going gets tough?  That's when the rubber hits the road.  What kind of fire do you have?  Is it a little camp fire, only for those within the camp ground to see and then it will be put out when the need for it is over?  Or is it a wild fire, catching whatever is in its path, set on course in all directions as the wind (God) directs it?  Touching and revealing God to places and people in a way they have never before seen Him move because they have never been around such a person?

Have a blessed day!!
