His Gentle Fierceness

Hebrews 12:29 Our God is a consuming fire.


He gazed deep into my eyes. I felt His strength explode into me; rushing like liquid fierce to my quaking bones and sipping into the marrow. I was terrified of the power that radiated from Him. I wanted to flee….I wanted to fall prostate before Him. I wanted…well I didn’t know but I wanted Him to stop…and…not stop staring into the depths of my soul. I yearned for more – to go deeper into that fierce gaze. I trembled. I yearned. I sobbed silent tears as His consuming love began to pierce my soul with its intensity. He was possessing me. He was drawing me into Him. I felt like I was melting under His powerful gaze.

“My beloved” The whisper of His heart radiated all around us and I could feel myself falling forward, yearning, needing, craving Him…His fire. Knowing my thoughts He reached deep into me and caressed my heart. I can’t take it anymore. I can’t handle it. I couldn’t…yet…my gaze remained steady on His faze. His eyes – oh! His eyes!!! A burning amber that stamped itself into memory. I will never forget. I will never forget the fierce flare of His amber eyes.

And just like that, when I thought I was about to fall into Him and touch Him with my being, He opened His mouth wide and roared. His roar – majestic and powerful – shook heaven and earth and the ground beneath us. I thought I was done for but even as my heart trembled with fear – it trembled with need. I inhaled His aroma, His scent was like fire pouring into the deep recesses of my already burning heart. As His roar continued to pierced my ears, I felt a gentle vibration begin in my heart and travel to the rest of me. He was branding me. AGAIN. He didn’t stop, He roared and branded and roared some more until He was satisfied then just like that; He stopped.

I came to, to find the Lion of Judah standing over me. Very briefly – His eyes bore into me – then He was gone.

The lion has roared; who will not fear? The Lord God has spoken; who can but prophesy? Amos 3:7-8
