TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
I sent my Son to sacrifice Himself for you. I call you to sacrifice yourselves for revival! It’s not about you. It’s about who I can touch through you. Be a way for Me to reach them. This is your purpose.
IT’S NOT ABOUT YOU
Revival is completely positioned around how awesome God is. So, if we’re going to bring on revival where all of a sudden the Spirit of God moves, something must be initiated with us that has everybody else wanting it too.
Because revival is positioned around how awesome God is, it’s going to happen with the people whose hearts are positioned around His awesomeness. Your awareness of God’s goodness is a huge part of revival. If you don’t have a value for the Spirit moving now, you will miss the revival then.
You have to have the power of God in your life. You have to be more in love with Jesus this week than what you were last week.
You focus on the presence of God. You protect the presence of God. Once this revival starts, you will have to protect it. The supernatural fire comes from heaven, but it’s the job of the priests of the house to keep the fire going.
The Old Testament is clear: fire falls on sacrifice. What is sacrifice? It is selflessness. The opposite of revival is when the Philistine spirit rises up and wants us to dwell on our past and forget about what a big deal it is to be in the presence of God.
The word “Philistine” means “to roll in the dust” or “to wallow in self.” Self-pity, self-promotion, self-righteousness, self-preservation – any word that starts with self – all equal in selfishness. There’s no such thing as revival falling on people who are selfish, so get over yourself and focus on getting people saved.
“Do nothing out of rivalry or conceit, but in humility consider others as more important than yourselves.” – Philippians 2:3
