Go through a personal revival!

George Whittenby George Whitten

Isaiah 44:3 For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

I love to study past revivals and in studying them, there are two recurring themes that stand out:

First, that He has often used obscure and unknown individuals to lead revivals, and that even these men whom He used so powerfully never considered themselves to be “special“, but often wanted to stay out of the limelight.

And secondly, I haven’t read a story about a revivalist who did not first go through a personal revival himself! Revivals were not sparked until these men went through a season of personal desperation and yearning for the fire of God – and only after this season were they used of the Lord to change their generation.

How does this speak to us, obscure, unknown individuals? It shows us that a true and deep hunger for God can grow into a significant and powerful calling on our lives — a specific mission which God Himself will empower! It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, old or young, educated or uneducated — each of us has a potential destiny to accomplish great things for the Kingdom of God! But in order to go on and do those awesome works in His name, we need to be in a state of revival!

Let us pursue after our own personal revival! We’re alive for such a time as this — to be spirit-filled vessels of revival to this lost and dying world! Press in, press on, and go forth in His Power…because there is so much work to be done!

Your family in the Lord with much agape love

The Missionaries Who Forgot Who They Were

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

Imagine missionaries going to New Guinea. They’re there to love the cannibals. Things are tough and the native peoples are against them, but they keep rejoicing. One day, two tribesmen hit them with rocks and the missionaries forget that they’re missionaries. It’s no longer a mission field- it’s home. That’s exactly how it is for most believers. They treat the world as home and forget that it’s really a mission field. Most believers live their lives as missionaries with amnesia. We forget that we’re here on a mission and think that we’re here to survive or get by, to get the most out of it, to fit in, be successful, or impress people. We care what people think of us. But we’re not here for that. We’re here to give and be a witness and to shine our lights into the darkness. Stop trying to fit in with the cannibals to become a successful cannibal. Wake up! You’re not at home and you’re not hanging out, you’re here to bless. This is your mission field! So get on with your mission. Everything else is just a bad case of amnesia.

Today’s Mission – Live today as if everywhere you went was your mission field. Fulfill your mission.
