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?
Once free from slavery, the Israelites rejoiced in how God brought the out of Egypt and across the Red Sea on dry ground. Then they arrive in Marah where there was “bitter” water. Their songs of praise quickly turned to crys of complaint. So Moses prays. God shows Moses a tree and when it was tossed into the waters the water became “sweet” — or drinkable. God then tells the people that if they listen to Him and obey Him, He will not place any of the diseases on them that He put on the Egyptians. In the plagues, God made the waters turned to blood, brought a swarm of frogs, followed by the plague of lice, then flies. Next there was the plague on the cattle that caused them to die. Then there was the plague of boils. After that was the plague of hail that ruined the crops. What the hail didn’t destroy the plague of locusts consumed. Then there was the plague of darkness. The final plague was the death of all the Egyptians first born children and first born animals. The plagues came because Pharaoh wouldn’t acknowledge God and would not obey God and let the Israelites go. It took the entire nation of Egypt going through all these plagues before Pharaoh relented.
Words for today
Who would have thought that in this century with all our modernized medical advancements that we would see a worldwide plague or pandemic? But it is here. The simple truth is this world has no more listened to, obeyed, or acknowledged God any more than Pharaoh did. It took Pharaoh 10 plagues to get the message. How many do we need to go through – or how long does COVID had to be around for us to get the message?
The Need for Revival
- If we want God to heal our land, we need to follow God’s prescription and it’s found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their land.
Praying for Revival
Father, we have not listened to you or obeyed your commandments. Our nation has attempted to wipe out your commandments and traded Godly living for ungodly living. As a nation we’ve chose to live the way we wanted, not the way you called us to live. God, it’s time for your people – the Christians – to stop being complacent and to get on their knees before you in repentance and seeking your face. We need to turn from our complacency and be burdened for this world. We need to listen to you and obey your commandments. Forgive us father. Bring healing to our land.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
What’s the impossible in your life? In Matthew 19:26, Jesus said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” When you reach the point of impossible – that’s where God starts.
