Revival: Who Needs It?
“Sow for yourselves righteousness; reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground, for it is time to seek the Lord, till He comes and rains righteousness on you.” Hosea 10:12
It is time. Spring has arrived and the fallow ground, the neglected and barren soil, is now made ready for the seed. It is a wonderful feeling to sink fingers into the cool, smooth earth after it has been prepared for planting. No rocks. No weeds. It is all ready to receive the seed.
What a vivid picture God has given to demonstrate His call to revival! Hearts that have become hardened through the deceitfulness of sin (Hebrews 3:13) can become broken and soft as we admit our guilt and agree with God about our sin. Hearts can become ready to receive God’s Word.
How long has it been since you have devoted time to prayer? To God’s Word? How long has it been since you have lifted up your voice to sing praises from your heart to your Savior? These acts of worship, along with others, should be a natural part of our day if we are a child of God.
It is God’s grace that will put the desire in our hearts to love Him once again. His grace will give us the power to return.
It is time to be revived.
Oh God! Turn my heart from idols that I may worship You alone. Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit in me. Restore to me the joy of Your salvation. Revive my heart and I will rejoice in You!
Have you long thought of revival to be only for the unsaved? I thought that once too. But now, I realize it's something I need! Revival: Who Needs It? ME! How will you seek Him this week?
