I’ve been talking a lot about the global revival that is coming. You may be looking around and wondering where it is.
Don’t be discouraged by what’s going on in the world today. Revival is coming, and it is here. It starts with you and me.
I want to take a look at these three levels right now to help you be more effective in bringing revival to the world.
Revival comes when we first experience God in our own lives. As we experience our own personal revival, it will overflow and change those around us.
When others see our lives filled with hearing God, healing, supernatural encounters and love, they will want what we have.
God wants to ignite a personal revival in your life so you can kindle that same spark in others until it becomes a bigger fire and ultimately changes the world!
Here’s how you can ignite personal revival in your own life:
- Spend time with The LORD on a regular basis by reading the Bible. If your Bible study seems dry, try changing to a modern translation like The Passion Translation. Keep track of the Bible verses that speak to you or validate needs you have.
- Talk with The LORD as you would to a loving father or friend. Try going beyond praying through a laundry list of needs. Instead, have personal conversations with The LORD.
- Understand that, as a loving father, God loves you and does not want to harm you. He is not angry at you or punishing you.
Some Christians have difficulty leading with a message of love to our neighbors like Jesus did. But, if we want the revival to spread beyond ourselves, we have to begin here!
Jesus said it best: “Love God with all your heart and with all your soul and … love your neighbor as yourself.” Matthew 22:37–39 NIV.
Loving people the way we love ourselves is the way to ignite social revival among our friends, families, colleagues, etc.
As they begin to be affected by the love of God shown through us, they will take that love and spread it around too!
God has given you an assignment to love others. You can trust that every time you choose to love people in your sphere of influence, that love will keep reaching until global revival takes place!
The Earth is overdue for a revival, and the spiritual atmosphere is pregnant with the promises of God. global revival will only happen if we first experience both personal and social revival.
The timing of the global revival is not limited by a specific year because God is counting on us to help bring it to pass.
We can do this by loving ourselves and the people around us intentionally — holding nothing back!
So, don’t worry. I know you feel like there has to be something more, and you’re ready for something big to happen. Just hang in there and increase your love for God, people and yourself.
Keep trusting God to bring about the global revival. There’s no reason to be afraid, God’s promises always come through!
Get ready to experience revival in your life!
