Leviticus 6:8f says “The fire must always be kept burning on the altar and never allowed to go out.” (Good News Bible). The Altar was open for business 24/7, kind of like the ATM Machine, open all the time, not just banker’s hours.

What a great analogy to our God. God is always like that. He’s always there for us, even in the middle of the night. When we need to make a spiritual withdrawal we don’t have to wait for business hours. He’s there ready, willing, and able. “He will never let me stumble, slip, or fall. For he is always watching, never sleeping.” (Psalm 121:4 – Living Bible).
