As I drove down the road the other day, I began to sing praises to God.
You see, my daughter went to youth camp a little over a week ago and the youth group at our church came home revived and on fire for more of God. I could feel Him overflowing from their lives, their words, and their actions. I saw a new child as she brought home that desire for more of Him and began to go after Him in her quiet time.
I began to think about what this world would be like if the Christians that we have in this world RIGHT NOW would get on fire for Him...what would happen? What type of revival would break out in our nation?Why do we sit on the church pews every Sunday and run as hard as we can away from it when Monday hits? What gets in our way?
We let this world consume us with its claws and we sit here as it picks us up and swallows us whole.
It's time we get a fire lit up underneath us and start going after Him so that we can see revival hit our nation.
Listen, things in this world are not going to get any easier. SURPRISE!!! Yes, I said it...we are going to be tried more, we are going to go through more battles in the years to come before our God comes back to take us home. We need to get our armour on and be ready....
As I drove that day, these words came to me...
More of you Lord
I long to be in your presence
To sit at your feet
To be consumed with your love
To be drawn into your presence and be filled with your being
I long to know you more intimately
I need more of you Lord
I need you more in my life
I need to be in your presence...
I went on in worship to my Father as I sang praises to Him and spent time with Him...but you see, it cannot end there...these words have to go deeper than our lips...we must get it in our soul. It must consume our thoughts.
If we meditate on Him day and night, He will become a part of our lives. If we spend time at His feet in adoration and worship, He will consume us with His presence.
Let's stop walking around in our little boxes and let's go after God. I am...I want to see revival fire hit my city, our schools, our neighborhoods, our homes, our families, our churches, and our nation.
TURN YOUR EYES UPON JESUS
LOOK FULL IN HIS WONDERFUL FACE
AND THE THINGS OF EARTH WILL GROW STRANGELY DIM
IN THE LIGHT OF HIS GLORY AND GRACE...
