A daily verse about the state of our nation and time for Christians reflect and unite in prayer, asking God to send a revival across our land and turn our nation back to Him.
Do we need a revival?
Revival is needed because the wickedness of man is great
The flood that destroyed the entire earth, except for those inside the ark occurred for no other reason than sin. As God looked down on the earth, he saw that man had become so full of sin that he describes it as “the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intention of the thoughts of his hearts was only evil continually.” In fact, the sin level was so high that God regretted making man.
From “very good” to “regret”
Back in the beginning when God created the earth and man, God said at the end of each day of created that it was “good.” But when he made man in his own image, God said it was “very good.” But by the days of Noah, we find that God regretted ever making man. As a result, God decides to destroy the earth.
But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. The Bible describes Noah as a man that “walked with God.” Now if you’re going to walk with an omniscient and holy God, you’d better make sure you living an honorable life. The Bible said that Noah was “blameless.” It doesn’t mean that Noah never sinned, but that he was without evident fault. If he did sin, he must have confessed it and asked for God’s forgiveness. But of all the people living at the time of the flood, only Noah and his family found favor in God’s sight.
The Need for Revival
- Do you think that God is once again at a point of regretting that He made man? Do you think He is grieved over the sin in our world?
- If God looked on the earth today, would you find favor in the eyes of the Lord? Would he say you are blameless?
- Would God say that you walk with Him? Do you have a close relationship with Him?
Praying for Revival
Father, how you must regret the state of the world today – and our nation. Forgive us for grieving your heart. Father, help me to live blameless before you and to find favor in your eyes. Give me a desire to have a personal, close relationship with you that hungers and thirsts for righteousness. May I live my life in such a way that when the world looks at me, they see you.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
Feel like giving up? Paul reminds us in Hebrews 12:1 to run with perseverance the race that was set before us.
