One Year Bible: Day 79 – Numbers 9:15-11:3; Luke 3:1-22; Psalm 35:19-28

From evening till morning the cloud above the tabernacle looked like fire” (Numbers 9:15). Then fire from the Lord burned among them and consumed some of the outskirts of the camp” (Numbers 11:1). “He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in His hand to clear the threshing floor and to gather the wheat into the barn, but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire” (Luke 3:16-17). Fire is a symbol of God’s working among His people. In both Numbers and Luke, there are two aspects of God’s work in us; burning away the sin and brightening our lives with the presence of God, with the power of the Holy Spirit. Those who have been blessed by the Lord in this way must surely say of Him: “My tongue will speak of Your righteousness and of Your praises all day long” (Psalm 35:28).
