“Rivers of waters run down mine eyes, because they keep not Thy law.”
To start the New Year, our pastor called us to a fast. The emphasis is on revival.
My heart cries for our nation and the darkness that has increasingly ensued. My soul weeps for the hardened hearts of lost loved ones. They need revival.
However, God has reminded me during the fast that I need revival, too. Rather than focus only on the desperate condition of others, He asks that I remember from whence I came. Apart from Christ’s shed blood for me, I am a wretched sinner.
God also wants me to remember that He is no respecter of persons. What He has done for one, He’ll surely do for another. Doing so brings me renewed hope for my nation and those I love. Because of Him, I will keep on crying out for revival in my life and others. I will press on in believing that God is able.
I will both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of The Lord.
“It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.“
Amen! Thank you for sharing!!
Your post reminded me of David Wilkerson’s sermon, A Call To Anguish. A short clip of it is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lGMG_PVaJoI It’s NOT for the passive Christian! 🙂
Thank you for the link. David Wilkerson’s message is so needed. Sadly, we are exactly the way he portrayed. Content in our comfortable world and not weeping over souls. I do spend time weeping for my loved ones and our world, but not to the level he described. Powerful call to action.
