“You are here for a reason.”

God Can

Most people would agree that we are living in the last days of this world as we know it. If you simply pick up the Bible and begin to read the signs of Christ’s return it appears that it could be this very moment.

Though we as beleivers look forward to this day I beleive there are some dangers for us as well. the number one danger is that of complacency and cacooning. We feel that God is d0ne working and we just hunker down and try to hold on to the end.

As we pray for revival, there are some who would say it is a waste, that God is past that. but I think not. I am encouraged as I read all the scriptures of God’s grace and merciful hand even upon individual families and groups. In the Bible we regularly see God’s hand of judgment upon a people and nation and with that comes great destruction. Yet, you will find Him showing mercy and working in the life of that one family or person who remained obedient and steadfast in their faith in spite of what everyone else around them was doing.

Will God bring revival to America? I cannot answer that. I would hope so but there certainly seems no desire for it. But I am convinced that God can bring revival to a church and community and I beleive He wants to do it here!

There may be a dryness and a spiritual valley of dead bones all around but God can bring a river of water in the midst of it if we ask.

Please continue to pray for revival and those folks you plan to invite

40 days of prayer for revival

the prayer topics for the last two days, Feb 21 & 22, 2010 have a simple yet extremely important theme to the life of the body. the word of
God calls upon each member of the body to put away certain things: bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, slander and malice. Then God commands that we be kind, tenderhearted, forgiving and loving.

As we look to experience God more fully through revival, the greatest hinderance I beleive is the little inside attacks. Certainly a church who becomes serious about prayer, seeking God and shining the light of Jesus in their community will come under the attack of the devil. But far too often, we hinder revival and this great expereince with God ourselves.

Each of us needs to examine every relationship in our life and look and see if it is categorized by anger and bitterness or love and forgiveness. It is a humbling thing to love and forgive especially if you feel like you are right and someone else is wrong. Yet, humbling ourselves is the first step of truly expereincing God.

We must ask oursleves, would I rather hand on to my anger, bitterness and unforgiveness, or would I rather experience a greater love of God in my life? The response would seem obvious but for many it is not

Join me in praying fervently this week for our body that God would protect our relationships in love and our unity may not be broken
