The Very Flame of the LORD

Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm, for love is strong as death, jealousy is fierce as the grave. Its flashes are flashes of fire, the very flame of the Lord .
Song of Solomon 8:6 ESV

The song “You Won’t Relent” by Songwriters Cassie Campbell / David Brymer / Misty Edwards has the lyrics:

“You won’t relent until you have it all
My heart is yours
You won’t relent until you have it all
My heart is yoursI’ll set you as a seal upon my heart
As a seal upon my arm
For there is love that is as strong as death
Jealousy, demanding as the grave
Many waters cannot quench this love”

Does the fire burn inside of us?

Is there a flame upon our heart?

Is it burning away all those things of self?

Do we know He is right here with us in this place?

Can we say “my heart is yours”?

Thank you Jesus, for the fervor with which we can live this life on fire for you.

Thank you to my friend Chad Branum for highlighting this beautiful passage from Song of Solomon that reminds ne this morning of the passion and fire that burns in us as we walk closer with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Lord, stir up in us revival — that fire of spirit change burning away the things of self and revealing you in us as a light to give you glory and draw other men, women, young and old to your saving grace. May you be that seal upon our hearts that shows in everything we put our hands to. Help us to live on fire for you, unashamed, unwavering, firm and steady. Amen.
