And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.
This is a beautiful picture of God’s fiery all consuming love. The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 13:8 that love never fails.
This fire that was infolding itself came out of the north, the cold place of the winter season. The fire was infolding itself or was feeding itself. The LORD is the self existent one who reveals Himself. He exists by Himself because He is an eternal love fire that infolds itself or feeds itself. He does not get His life from any place except Himself. He is self existent. God is love.
When we find ourselves in those cold winter seasons of life wondering if we will ever feel the warmth of the spring sun again, we are in the perfect place to discover God’s self existent fiery love that never fails.
Love never fails. Whatever it gets around, is drawn into the middle of this infolding fire. After we learn to draw near God’s love in our winter season it is then time to share that same love with those around us who are in a winter season.
It doesn’t matter how cold someone is or how cold a situation is, God’s love never fails. If I practice walking in God’s way of love, all opposition and hate will be consumed by this fiery love. God’s love never fails. I will live victorious when I allow God’s love to consume me. Depression, addiction, rejection, failures, mistakes are all consumed when I walk in Gods’s love. We can successfully walk through the darkest and coldest places of life when we are walking in this fiery love.
