YOUR PERSONAL REVIVAL
When Moses did his first miracle in Egypt and turned the water into blood a revival broke out. Then 1,470 years later, another revival happened when Jesus turned the water into wine.
Revival is when God shows up and everybody gets with His program. It’s when heaven invades earth. Revival is when people, things, or even a generation is directly affected by the presence of God.
Sometimes, it’s an experience – a personal encounter with God Almighty. Now, this happens at different levels all the time, but revival is when it all gets concentrated. We need revival both personally and corporately as the body of Christ.
“True revival,” says a brother by the name of Del Fehsenfeld Jr., “is that divine moment when God bursts upon the scene and displays His glory.” What is His glory? It’s His visible awesomeness.
His glory is evident when we begin to live according to the reality of the life we have in Christ. It’s when everything that was dead starts to come alive because Christ is resurrected from the dead. The Psalmist really knew what he was saying when he wrote the following:
“Restore us, O Lord God of hosts! Let your face shine, that we may be saved!” – Psalm 80:19
“Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?” – Psalm 85:6
When we value the presence of God, we begin to rejoice in Him. The reason so many Christians have to be kick-started to worship God is because they do not yet have a high value for His presence.
You have to learn what a big deal it is to get into the presence of God, how incredible it is. It is such a privilege to enter into His presence. If all you have to do to cooperate is raise your hands and cry out to Him, that’s not asking too much. It just step one in your personal revival.
