Today’s verse for Revival:
For America (or any nation) to see a revival, its people need a new heart and a new spirit. Only God can remove the cold, dead hearts of stone and replace them with a heart of flesh. Through the prophet Ezekiel, God told Israel:
And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. — Ezekiel 36:26
Why do we need Revival?
God said that He would remove the heart of stone. A heart of stone is one that is cold, callous, hard….and dead. Dead in sin. It is a heart that wants to live its own way rather than following after God. It is a heart that is ruled by Satan rather than by God. A heart of stone is a heart that has become complacent in the way things are. It is a heart that doesn’t stand up for the things of God, but looks the other way as long as it doesn’t personally affect its own life. A heart of stone doesn’t chase after the things of God, it doesn’t desire to spend time in Bible study, prayer, and worship, and it doesn’t long for a relationship with God.
For the most part, a heart of stone describes the state of our nation. Does it describe your heart or a part of your heart? If it does, then surrender that stony parts of your heart today and allow God to revive your heart with a new heart of flesh.
Today’s Revival prayer:
Father, as we encounter you today, remove our hearts of stone and give us a heart of flesh. Help us to surrender our lives completely to you and be willing to obey you in every way. Give us hearts that long for the things that please you and a desire to be continually in your presence. May we become a people after your own heart, like David. Thank you, Lord, for your blood that cleanses us from all sin and gives us a new heart and a new, everlasting life. May we be a light to this world of sin and darkness and lead them to you. Holy Spirit, we invite you to continue changing us into the image of Christ. Send a revival in me today.
In the name of Jesus, Amen.
“The coming revival must begin with a great prayer revival. It is in the closet, with the door shut, that the sound of abundant revival will be first heard. An increase in the secret prayer of ministers and members will be the sure herald of blessing.”Andrew Murray
