Nancy Leigh DeMoss: “Don’t drink the water!” That’s what they say when you travel to certain parts of the world where the drinking supply isn’t safe.
So what do you do to make the water drinkable? You boil it to take out the impurities.
God wants do something similar in our lives. The prophet Isaiah prayed, “Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! . . . As fire causes water to boil.”
Isaiah was saying that God’s presence is like a fire that causes water to boil. We all have stagnant, complacent waters of our lives that hide impurities. God’s presence gets under those waters and causes them to boil—making them clean.
God wants to remove every impurity, both in our individual lives and in our churches. So, with Isaiah, would you ask God to come in revival and to rescue us from complacency and to make us holy?
