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?
Worshiping idols and false gods was rampant in the days of Moses. It isn’t much different today. But even those who are Christians can be guilty of having idols. They may not be graven images – but idols still exist. We can be guilty of making idols out of relationships, children, careers, hobbies, sports, money, and possessions. Anything we give a higher priority to than God is an idol and we then become guilty of breaking the first commandment.
God is a jealous God?
We typically view jealous as bad. But God has every right to be jealous. He is our creator and He is the ONLY God by which we can be saved from our sins. Yet we look to so many other things or people or even false gods for happiness. God’s jealousy looks quite different from how we view or define jealousy. The Hebrew word translated “jealous” in the Ten Commandments is qanna (קַנָּא) It is only used to describe God and is related to another word that means “zeal.” Common synonyms for “zeal” are passion, enthusiasm, and fervor. When God says He is a jealous God, His jealousy is righteous and holy. God is jealous for his relationship with his people because He passionately loves them and does not want them to be destroyed by idolatry.
The Need for Revival
- Ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any idols you have in your life. Seek God’s forgiveness and then return God to the place of honor due Him.
Praying for Revival
Father, we confess to you in this moment the idols we’ve made in our lives. Forgive us for setting these things and people in a place of priority and honor over you. Lord, today I ask that you take the place of honor in my life.
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.
