It is sad today to believe that Revival is elusive and difficult to obtain or achieve; yet revival and a move of the Spirit is a promise from God. It is only difficult to some because there is a price to pay and they are unwilling to pay the price.
Revival is spontaneous and cannot be controlled. Whenever revival erupts it is like a wildfire that will ocntinue to spread as long as the church continues to fan the flame. I am confident that we can all agree that what we need more than anything else is revival.
Unfortunately, won't come just to come. Revival must be ushered by the church. Revival will only come to those who long for it, desire it; those who pursue after it with an undying hunger and thirst for it.
This is truly our finest hour. This is the greatest day of the church. I believet that sometimes we do not realize the day that we are living in. The signs are all around us that we are living near to the coming of the Son of Man. Jesus is coming soon.
But while we are here what are we doing? In life, there are many distractions - many voices that contend for our attention. There are many things that try to rob us of our passion and love for the Lord. As a people we must stand firm; we must not allow ourselves to be come cold in our spirit. The FIRE must burn.
Revival is the result of a complete surrender to the Lord - one in which we have given everything to Him: our time, our finances, our passions, our desires, our relationships, and so on. Once we have given everythign to the Lord so that there are no hindrances to the free flow of the Spirit, revival will come.
