Let us not consume or devour each other.
Let us not consume or devour each other.

"Faye's Daily Words Of Encouragement"consumed by all # 111 Todays Word Is: Consume"

Definition of the word Consume: means to eat or use up something.

Luke chapter 9 - 54 :And when his disciples James and John saw this, they said Lord, will thou that we command fire to come down from heaven, and consume them, even as Elias did.

Galatians chapter 5 -15 : But if ye bite and devour one another, take heed that ye be not consume by one of another.

Hebrews chapter 12: 28-29 : Wherefore we received a Kingdom, which cannot be moved, let us have grace, where by we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: 29: for our God is a consuming fire.

James chapter 4 -3 : Ye ask and received not, because ye ask amis, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.

Lamentations chapter 3 - 22 : It is of the Lord' mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassion's fail not.

Malachi chapter 3 - 6 : For I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob, are not consumed.

We know that we consume every day by eating and drinking; for self preservation, but I have learn ed through studing Gods word: that we can destroy other by consuming and devouring them. This is not the type of consumption that God doesn't want us involved with. God wants us to love one another with pure hearts and not destroy each other. Let us beware of Gods consuming fire; it's only by his mercies and compassion's that we are not consumed by his fire. Sometimes we are hatred, malice, jealousy, envy, fornication , murder, lies, lusts are just some of the consumptions that destroys the mind and the body, and it's all the work of Satan.

If God Wanted to send his consuming fire from heaven to destroy us for our sins, there would be no way we could stop him. But since we have such a loving and caring God; with mercy and compassion's for us: we don't have to worry about the consuming fire of God, hurting us. we all have to live godly lives according to his word and everything else will be alright. Let us strive for perfection in him who made us.

      This is a great reminder. There is so much backbiting and consuming each other with our bad words and deeds, that we need to remember that we can become consumed just as easily.

      As you said creativeone, "Let us beware of Gods consuming fire; it's only by his mercies and compassion's that we are not consumed by his fire." Though God through Christ is a gracious God, the dispensation of grace will not last always. He is also a God of perfect justice who will be a consuming fire on all who rejected His grace.

      Serious hub for these serious times.

      Forever His,

      Your words are so true. We as a nation and all of the planet seem to be set on consuming each other. Our lusts for material things is out of control and that is why we suffer the current economic climate. Thank you for your daily encouraging words.
