They asked each other, “Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?” Luke 24:32 (NIV)
That is my hope. That is my dream. That is my desire. That is my prayer. What’s that? It is my hope and dream and desire and prayer to be set on fire by you. I want you to completely turn my world upside down. I want you to rock my world. I want to be completely changed. I want to burn passionately for you. I want to shine brightly for you. I don’t want to be a little warm. I don’t want to be a faint glimmer. I want to burn white hot for you. I want to shine like a star in the universe for you. I want to love you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. I want to completely lose myself in loving, following and serving you. I want you to change my heart, transform my mind and guide my life. It is my guess and eager expectation that I will look nothing like my old self when you get done with me. You will make me moldable. You will make me usable. You will make me new. I will be made able to accomplish your purposes and fulfill your plans. What those might be, I have no idea. But, I am here and now telling you that I am completely available to you. There is one thing that I do know without a doubt. What’s that? You will make me to be like you. You will give me a completely new life to live. That’s true. And yet, there is something else that I know. What’s that? I will be the work of your hands. You will make me into your masterpiece. Yes, I will. You can count on me to do all these things in your life. That’s great. That’s fantastic. That’s overwhelming.
What tool will I use to change your heart, transform your mind and guide your life? What will I use to set you on fire to love, follow and serve me? You will use your word. You will open up the Scriptures to me. You will use your word to speak into my life. You will use your word to mold and shape me. You will use your word to teach and train me. You will use your word to guard and guide me. Yes, I will. Will you continue to meet with me in my word? Will you allow my word to dwell in you richly? Yes, I will. That will be very good. Then you will be changed. Then you will be made new. Then you will be set on fire to love, follow and serve me. Thank you, Lord.
Lord, I want nothing more than to be set on fire by you. I want to burn passionately for you. I want to love and follow and serve you with all my heart and mind and soul and strength. Fill my heart with desire so that I will live my life completely with and for you. Amen
