Jer 20:9 ESV
(9) If I say, “I will not mention Him, or speak any more in His name,” there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.
Jeremiah was a mighty prophet and he was required of the LORD to prophesy with great boldness to the King of Judah and the coming captivity of Judah into the hand of the king of Babylon. Jeremiah was even beaten and imprisoned by Pashhur the priest for prophesying such doom, and his own family ridiculed him too. The LORD told Jeremiah not to trust his family even if they were to say friendly words to him.
Jeremiah was so full of the fiery Words of the LORD that even if he tried to remain still and not to prophesy the Spirit of the LORD would overtake him and roar through him. He could not contain the Words of the LORD as they burned like fire inside of him.
Have you ever just sat and sat on a word in your spirit and no matter how hard you tried to keep it in you just couldn’t because the Spirit of the LORD prevailed in birthing it? When a Word is that heavy and you can’t shake it from coming to your spirit it is extremely important to be released. The word you speak may even be just to declare it to the rocks or the hills, but rest assured as it comes out by the Spirit of the LORD it goes forth with purpose and echoes throughout those hills to fulfill the purpose He designed them to do.
There is a remnant generation who has kept the Words of the LORD in them and they will begin releasing them in the upcoming season with great fiery zeal and boldness to proclaim the coming of the Messiah and to get ready for Him.
Be blessed with His fiery love and passion,
Pastors & Psalmist Gary and Rhonda Petzoldt
