Revival – by Daniel Forster

Spread the love



If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 (ESV)


Revival” is a word we know. It is something we pray for. Is it something we live for?

Do we really want a revival? Many of you will be quick to announce…Yes! But I will ask again. Do we really want a revival? A revival means we are living our lives for God and for God alone because we have surrendered our lives and have humbly and meekly come before Him. Are you willing to give up everything in your life to say yes to every move God asks you to make? Are you willing to live a revival, or are we just willing to pray for one?

I don’t mean to come across as being harsh; however, these are serious times we live in. There can be no mistake that to pray for a revival is to ask God to continue to change you, to touch your heart with His Spirit, to transform you. It means you want to grow closer to Him in every aspect of your life. It means you are willing to surrender completely to Him, and put all things in your life second to Him, and only Him.

In my household, we are truly praying for a revival and are willing to live it in our lives. I say this not to boast, yet to acknowledge that we know firsthand how hard this is to live out a revival in us every day. We are attacked daily, we are distracted daily, yet one thing has to remain. PRAYER. If we slip out of the habit of prayer we slip out of our revival and back into the same old, same old.

Only God can bring a revival. However, for God to bring a revival, we must seek a revival. This can only be done with prayer.

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14 ESV)

Brothers, and Sisters, I pray for you and with you today that nothing in this world will keep you from spending some time with God today. Tell Him your hurts. Tell Him your pain. Tell Him about your confusion, your doubts, your worries, your concerns, and cry out to Him. Leave all of this at His feet. Turn from these things and look upon His face today.

Don’t just say you want to live your life for Him, believe you CAN live your life for Him. Walk in faith, upon His grace, and let your faith lead the way.

Father, Forgive us for our unbelief Lord that you will, and still do, work miracles in our lives every moment of every day. Lord let us be honest with you, and ourselves, in that we tend to live double minded lives. Lord we only want to live for you. We want to surrender all to you. Amen

Question: Are you ready for personal revival in your life?
