The sun comes up to another day and we ask the same question:
Where’s our generation’s Great Awakening? Why no revival?
Spiritually sucker punched by the lies we tell ourselves – they’re deadly, dangerous, full of venom:
“I’ve done nothing wrong!”
“I’m right. You’re wrong.”
“Just leave me alone!”
Is this the problem?
What if we stopped for a moment, in the Secret Place, for His examination – allow Him to blow away our lies to reveal the truth. Could this be the beginning of our great awakening – the real revival?
I believe the work of revival has already begun.
A broken heart is precious in His sight
A contrite spirit held gently in His hands
Lowered heads in sorrow
Wounds lay bare
Seen by the Physician alone.
The Healer heals
A yielded heart revived
Trusting soul resurrected
Body laid low lifted up
It’s the great awakening – the true revival
Starts with the heart
Ends in the soul
Look! Here’s your generation’s great awakening. The work of revival begins in you – His work in you.
For this is what the high and lofty One says – He who lives forever, whose name is holy: “I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the lowly and revive the heart of the contrite.” Isaiah 57:15 NIV
The Lord Almighty is waking up His people one-by-one in a precious and personal way until their yielded hearts beat to the rhythm of their Master. Do you believe this too?
Where is your Revival? Where is your generation’s Great Awakening?
