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?
What causes quarrel and fights?
Who is sick and tired of the fighting and quarreling that goes on all around us? It sometimes seems like you can’t listen to the news or avoid the push notifications about people fighting. There is political fighting, racial fighting, and religious fighting. There is fighting in families, at work, and in our schools. What causes so much fighting? James tells us the answer: because our passions are at war within us. People want something they can’t have, so the murder to get it. We covet what someone else has, so we fight about it.
When James says our passions are at war within us, he is referring to the self-centered desires that cause us to have a bitter hostility inside us that results in fighting. The answer to the problem is to change our self-centeredness to God-centeredness. When our focus is on Him, we will want the same things He wants: advancing His Kingdom. When our desires because what God desires, we honor Him and there will be no need to fight and quarrel.
The Need for Revival
- Is there self-centeredness in your heart that causes you to fight and quarrel with others?
- Is there bitterness in your heart?
Praying for Revival
Father, show us any self-centeredness in our hearts and any bitterness. Give us a focus for you, for advancing your kingdom, for serving you in a way that honors and glorifies you. Give us a willingness to humbly forgive others where it is needed, to let go of anger and bitterness. Replace these with your unfailing love, peace, and joy.
Lord, send a revival and let it begin in me.
