Please God Bring Revival
6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ 8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit. - John 3:6-8
We need God to Bring Revival
Our church will host its first revival services in 30ish days. That being said, we need to understand that we are unable to make Revival happen. In a conversation with Nicodemus, Jesus teaches us something about the Holy Spirit. His actions are unpredictable. Just as the wind blows one direction and then another, the Spirit's behavior is similar.
God is Untamable
We err when we think that we can make God move or behave in a certain way. The creation will never control the creator! The preacher, the worship style, the number of people in the crowd don't matter. The only thing that matters is when the Spirit decides to move.
The World Hasn't Seen a Greater Power Than the Holy Spirit.
When the Spirit blows everything in its path is impacted, those previously unable to receive spiritual truths (1 Corinthians 2:14) are brought to life. Others are set free from sin that has held them captive for years, and some surrender to ministry.
I Love Watching the Spirit Blow at Redemption!
I recently noticed that for over a year now He has been blowing. Last Summer, 50 adults came to Christ in 3 months. Our congregation received $32,000.00 more than was needed to complete renovations. Twenty-four people began studying the Bible, and many of them are now serving in our ministry. Our altars are full every Sunday as people surrender to the Spirit. People want to sing to him longer and longer.
I hope this Revival finds you standing in a place where the wind blows. Who knows what he will do in and through us! I trust Him, I love Him, and I want to experience more of Him! Don't you?
