Thought for today from yesterday….
Listening to an old Brownsville worship album, oh how my heart longs for that once more.
Also the heady days I spent in Lakeland in 2008 with hundreds, even thousands queuing for each service.
I know they all fizzled out, but the atmosphere, the weighty presence of God, the genuine healings, the electric praise and worship, and the inspired and inspiring preaching!
Wonderful days, wonderful memories.
I wonder how many today are really ready for such intensity, such an obvious presence, and the salvations.
Everyone wants to see, and hear, the testimonies of the accompanying ‘signs and wonders’, but how many want the longer term discipling of new-borns?
Who will ever forget watching Delia Knox getting up and walking after twenty years in a wheelchair at a meeting in 2010 with Nathan Morris at The Bay Revival?
How many received salvation after seeing that?
And how many were discipled well enough to still be following The LORD today?
Yes, Revival, Renewal, the moving of God through a His Spirit is what we all apparently want, but how many want the hard work, the responsibility that inevitably goes with such an awakening?
Think on it. Pray about it.
Then, if you really mean it, pray for the great awakening that is just beginning, to touch and bless you so that you may be that same blessing to others!
