And Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word. 1 kings 18:21
And thus says the Lord: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls.” But they said, “We will not walk in it.” Jeremiah 6:16
All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the Lord, and all the families of the nations shall worship before you. Psalm 22:27
Then we shall not turn back from you; give us life and we will call upon your name. Psalm 80:18
Throughout history, God has offered mankind the hope of revival. During dark and unstable times, and in prosperous and carefree times—the invitation to a closer walk with our creator is always there. I think we are all aware that it is when we come to the end of ourselves—to the end of our pride, self-sufficiency, and control—that we are most likely to humble ourselves and seek a closer walk with God.
In such a time as this, it is clear that our world needs the hope of revival—beginning first in the hearts of Christian believers, extending to those who have been straddling the fence for a very long time, to those who have stumbled and lost their footing—and ultimately to the lost who need to hear the gospel presented to them in a loving and personal way.
In the midst of the chaos, fear, and uncertainty that has besieged our planet in 2020, it is evident that we need revival. May we, as Christians, humble ourselves before our God and pray for revival!
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him and he with me.” Revelation 3:20
