Filled Up and Poured Out with Fire from the Bowls of Heaven - April 16, 2021


Morning by Morning, April 16 - Filled Up and Poured Out with Fire from the Bowls of Heaven

Good morning, Lord Jesus. I lift up my spirit into communion with Your Spirit, as I worship You in spirit and truth to begin my day intentionally connected and deliberately focused on You -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of God. ...

“Another angel with a golden censer came and stood at the altar; he was given a great quantity of incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar that is before the throne. And the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel. Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth; and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake” (Revelation 8:3-5).

Somehow in the mystery of Your sovereignty and our obedience, of Your plans and our prayers, our prayers not only matter, but move Heaven. Somehow our prayers are gathered up to fill up the bowls of Heaven being offered up before Your throne until the perfect time of Your purposes on the Earth.

“Then I saw between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders a Lamb standing as if it had been slaughtered, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. He went and took the scroll from the right hand of the One who was seated on the throne. When He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints” (Revelation 5:6-8).

“The prayers of the saints” are filling up the “golden bowls.” And there will come a day, in the fullness of time, when all that been filled up will be poured out. There will be “peals of thunder” and “flashes of lighting.” There will be “fire from the altar” of Heaven and the fullness of all that means on that day when we’ve filled the bowls and You say they’re filled enough. They’re filled up to be poured out.

We don’t know all that that means. But we do know You will be the One who determines the day and the way that Your Word comes to pass.

So every day between this day and that day to come, in foreshadows as forerunners of that time ahead, may we keep lifting up our prayers to You and You keep pouring out Your Fire in us. May we be filled up like the bowls of Heaven to be poured out with Your Holy Fire of Your Presence on Earth. Prayers are lifted up and Hoy Fire falls down -- in us and through us, setting our hearts and our world ablaze with the Presence of God. “For indeed our God is a Consuming Fire!” (Hebrews 12:29). In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
