God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:29). Imagine a fire in which everything is right? What are your thoughts of enduring such a fire? It brings misery; pain; and death. Our circumstances are meant to typify this. It will consume everything left that is sinful; yes, death to self and all earthliness is the goal. “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day” (2 Corinthians 4:16). And then the promise, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end” (Jeremiah 29:11).
