Set the World on Fire


“I want to set the world on fire, until it’s burning bright for You.”

Set the World on Fire by Brit Nicole is a beautiful song and one that started a fire in me.  I first heard the song several years ago and it made me want to become a world-changer.  I listened to it with my dearest friend, Madyline DiCocco.  We listened to it again…and then again.  I have no idea how many times we rewound it, but it stuck with me.  I know every word…

It’s everything that I desire;
Can I be the one You use?

It burns in my heart still today.

I am small, but You are big enough.
I am weak, but You are strong enough to take my dreams,

Come and give them wings!
Oh Lord with You, there’s nothing I cannot do!

It is when I realize just how small and weak I am that God is best able to use me (check out 2 Corinthians 12:9).  My desire is to make a difference everywhere that I go.  I want a place to change just because I was there and I shine for my Father.  The song continues…

I want to feed the hungry children,
And reach across the farthest land.
To tell the broken there is healing,
And mercy in the Father’s hands.

He makes the impossible become possible.  He is the Giver and Fulfiller of dreams.  With Him, I can set the world on fire.

My hands, my feet, my everything!
My life, my love; Lord, use me!

I want every part of me to be used for His glory.  Being small or weak isn’t an excuse.  Give yourself fully to Him and wait to see what He’ll do.
