The Time Is Now

Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me Psalms 51:10 (KJV)

Lord, send a revival right now!

That is my prayer for me right now.  Lord it is not my mother, father, brother, sister, but me oh Lord that needs revival.

We wait; it seems, on others to spark a revival spirit when God is speaking to us that He has a desire to revive us.  It is not up to someone else to begin a revival in your heart, it is up to you and it is up to me.  I have to be ready for me and you have to be ready for you.  My hope is that when it begins in me, it will jump all over you too.  But I promise you this, just because you “refuse” to be revived, doesn’t mean you can stop revival.  God will simply move on to the next individual with that clean heart that is ready to receive what He has for them as He speaks and they obey.

The month of May we have set aside special revival services for every Monday night.  The services do not cause revival, but they help us hear and respond to God.  The singing does not cause revival, but it sure helps us lift our voices in praise and adoration to God.  What does cause revival is simply God’s people being obedient to the voice of God and responding to Him as He speaks to them individual during the services.  It may be a song that speaks to your heart, it may be the kind word of someone you meet there and it may be the preacher’s message that God gave him for that night.

The key to this is being there to be able to be revived.  Many of you reading this do not live in my area, so let me encourage you to go to your churches revival services or to another churches revival services if your church is not having them.

If you are a child of God, God is calling you into revival.  He is not calling the lost to revival because they at this moment do not know Him.  God calls His people (His church) into revival.  People being saved are a result of God’s people obeying God and getting them to the Cross.  You don’t have to wait for your pastor to “schedule” a revival.  Revival can begin right now if you will come to God and ask him to “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me”

Our Nation needs God’s people being the people He has called them to be.  I am not waiting on anyone else and I pray you will join me in turning the world upside down with the great news of the Gospel message.

     If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land  2 Chron 7:14 (KJV)
