Prayers for Revival: Lead Me in the everlasting way

by Julia Bruce
CEO & Keynote speaker

What is the everlasting way?

At the time David wrote this Psalm, Jesus had not yet be born, died on the cross or rose from the dead. So for David, the everlasting way refers to the ancient way that godly men of the past followed, such as Abraham, Moses, Elijah, Elisha, and Samuel. This way led ultimately to everlasting life through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Everlasting life can never be gained by works but is by grace and through faith. David’s faith looked forward to the promise of Christ. Our faith today looks back on the completed work of Christ. Either way, Christ is the true and only to eternal life and He leads us like a Shepherd leads his sheep into a life of faith, truth, and godliness.

We are all on a path

Every human is on one of two paths. You can’t be on both – its either the way of everlasting life or the way of the world. At some point in our lives we each come to a fork in the path and must choose which direction we will go. And the choice we make in this life will determine our eternal destination. There will be no chance to “change your mind” after death. There is no “praying your way out.” There is no working your way out. It’s either eternal life in Heaven or eternal damnation in hell. So it is important that we make the right choice now – today.

The Right Way

Choosing the right way not only has eternal implications, but it also makes a difference in this life. As a follower of Christ our joy is in Him. One of the greatest lies of Satan is that following the path of the world will bring pleasure and happiness – but that happiness is fleeting and dependent upon our circumstances. As long as my circumstances are good, I’m happy. The everlasting way means my happiness comes from Christ living in me regardless of my circumstances. Those who follow the path of evil only have a fleeting happiness that is deceptive and traps us in a life of sin.

Lead me in the way

However, the way of faith in God and a life that flows out of that faith is the everlasting way that leads to eternal joy. But like sheep, we must be led on the everlasting way. Before surrendering our hearts to Christ, our sin keeps us blind to the ways of God and the path that leads to life. So we need for Jesus to take us by the hand and lead us down the path. As long as we are holding His hand, we don’t have to worry about straying off the path.

Today’s Revival Prayer

Father, we ask you to take us by the hand like a father does his child and lead us in the everlasting way. Help us to find our joy in you as we live for your glory. May our hearts be revived as we walk the way close to you until our steps lead us into eternity with You.

We also pray for those who have not yet chosen to take your hand follow You in the everlasting way. Open their hearts, eyes, and minds to the lies of Satan and to the Truth, Life, and Way.

John 10:11. I AM the Good Shepherd

Jesus as the Good Shepherd

Shepherding is one of the three major occupations in Palestine along with fishing and farming. Throughout the Old Testament, we see God calling on the leaders of the nation to shepherd his people. We also often refer to a pastor of a congregation as a “shepherd.” And Jesus declares Himself to be the ultimate Shepherd.

In Chapter 9 of John, Jesus had just healed a man that was born blind. The Pharisees drill the poor guy with lots of questions. Then they bring his parents and and drill them. But they were afraid of the Pharisees and basically said, “Why are you asking us? He’s a grown man. Let him answer for himself.” So they bring the guy back in and he finally says to them, “Hey, I don’t know who healed me. Why are you so interested interested in knowing? Do you want to be one of his followers too?” The Pharisees were so caught up in trying to discredit Jesus and trap Him so they could kill Him that they missed a miracle – but the blind man sure didn’t miss it. It changed his life. As I imagine this scene unfolding, in my mind I see this guys staring the Pharisees down with a mix of awe and unbelief that that they didn’t get the fact that the greatest thing that ever happened to him just happened. He shakes his head and says, “Do you guys get it? All I know is once I was blind, but now…now I can see!” Can you hear his joy and excitement? And still the Pharisees missed it. Angry at the man, they throw him out of the temple.

A little later, Jesus comes back to check on him and make sure he’s okay. He then turns his attention to the Pharisees. For a moment he just looks at them. They squirm under his direct gaze. Then He calls them out for their ridiculous ungodly behavior, and telling them that though they may not be physically blind, they are spiritually blind. He then uses an allegory playing off of shepherding to try to get them to understand.

So as we get to Chapter 10, Jesus is pointing out who the true shepherd is and who are the thieves and robbers who would still the sheep away. He says, “I tell you the truth, the man who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate, but climbs in by some other way, is a thief and a robber.” Little words can sometimes have big meanings. Have you ever stopped to think about a thief and a robber as two different things? We know they both steal – but what’s different about them? A thief will sneak in, take what they want, and sneak back out. A robber, on the other hand, steals by being violent. So Jesus was saying that the person who is not the true shepherd is a sneaky, violent thief.

In comparison, the true shepherd of the sheep enters the sheep pin by the gate. They sheep listen to his voice as he calls each sheep by name and leads them out of the pin and into the pasture. When they are all out, he goes ahead of them and they follow him because they know the sound of his voice. If a stranger tries to lead them, they will run away because they do not recognize the voice.

Jesus then says in verse 7, “I tell you the truth, I am the door to the sheep.” Understanding life and culture of Jesus’ day gives a much deeper understanding and truth to what Jesus was saying. Every night, the shepherd would bring the sheep back to the pin, which was basically an area with a wall around it that had an opening which was the “door,” but there actually wasn’t a door – just an opening. After all the sheep were in the pin, the shepherd would lay across the opening with his staff. The only way to get into the pin was to go through Him. It kinda gives a new meaning to the saying, “Over my dead body.”

What we can learn from Jesus being the door is that whoever enters the sheep fold through Him will be saved because he gives them abundant life. In contract, Jesus said that they thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

Because He is the door to the sheep fold, he is also the shepherd. And He’s not an irresponsible, lazy, or mean shepherd. He’s not the hired helper who abandons the sheep when the wolves come looking for dinner. No, He’s a good shepherd who lays down his life for the sheep.

If the Pharisees were listening with their heart, the blind man would not have been the only person who’s life was transformed that day. Let’s make sure we don’t miss the spiritual truths that the Pharisees missed. The first truth is that we are sheep. The second truth is sheep need a good shepherd.

Psalm 100:3 says: Know that the Lord, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Yes – we are sheep. What are sheep like? They certainly are not fearless, rugged creatures. Sheep are pretty much just passive, dependent blobs of wool. Doesn’t seem like a very good compliment to be compared to, does it. And yet around 200 times, the Bible refers to us as sheep.

If we do a little research about sheep we can find that they a great at following. You might say, that’s a good thing because if Jesus is our shepherd, we should follow Him. But with sheep, if one sheep starts running towards a hungry lion, they will all follow along – and Mr. Lion will feast on a smorgasbord of lambchops.

Sheep are also helpless creatures, which makes them prime targets for wolves or any other hungry belly. They have one one defense and that is to run when danger comes.

Sheep also have a very limited vision. In fact they are almost blind. They can only see about 15 yards in front of them. Beyond that, they have no idea what’s ahead of them or what’s behind them.

Sheep also are not intelligent creatures. They will graze on the same hill over and over until they turn it into a wasteland. They will stay on the same trail until they fall in a rut. They are not able to find their own way back home. They will also lie down and roll over on their backs. However, they are not able to roll back over and will die unless they are helped to get back to their feet again. But even though they will die, they keep on rolling on the backs.

How do we compare with such helpless, stupid animals? Like sheep, we tend to be followers. We all want to “fit in” and wear the latest styles, use the latest, trendy words and we sit for hours peering into “Social media land” to make sure we are following right along with everyone else. We have also been known to run off on our own, charging full speed ahead and even take a crowd with us but yet not really know where we are going or why we are going that way. Today, something could be defined as “wrong” and tomorrow it could be defined as “right.” And whatever the crowd says, we scoot our beliefs into line with everyone else and march forward on our woolly little legs and follow.

We can also be very near sighted. We see today – not eternity. We live for what’s right in front of us and never consider the impact it will have tomorrow.

And like sheep, we can be stubborn, hard-headed, unmovable. We will keep on doing something that we know is wrong or not good for us – it might even potentially kills us – but we keep doing it any way.

Yes. We are sheep. And we are in need of a Good Shepherd who is willing to give His life for His sheep. Our Good Shepherd, calls us by our name. When we go astray, He searches us out and brings us back home. He guards us through the night with His own body being the door. He gave His life for us so that we can have abundant and eternal life. He leads and guides us to green pastures and living water. And, when we stubbornly roll over on our backs, He picks us up and sets us back on our feet again.

Jesus is our Good Shepherd. King David described it best in Psalm 23:

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

Matthew 10:20. Speak up!

Matthew 10 20

Have you ever felt that God was wanting you to say something to someone but you didn’t? Most often we feel like we don’t know what to say. Maybe you know the other person is grieving or hurting or in need. Maybe you don’t know their circumstances at all. Maybe this other person is someone who had hurt or ridiculed you. Jesus said in Matthew 10 that persecutions are coming. Not very encouraging news, is it? Jesus said that he was sending us out as sheep in the midst of wolves and that we should be wise as serpents and harmless as doves while still being aware that people will turn on us. And when they do, we are not to worry about what we should say to their accusations because in the moment that we should speak, the Holy Spirit will give us the words we need to say.

The same is true in every circumstance where God is asking us to speak up. Often times, the hardest word is the first word but once we open our mouths, the words just start coming. Then you might look back afterwards and say, “where did that come from?” It came from the Holy Spirit speaking through you.

God created us to worship Him and give Him praise. He also created us to be a blessing to others. Philippians 2:1-5 says, “So if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort from love, any participation in the Spirit, any affection and sympathy, complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.” We are to be an encouragement and comfort to others, showing affection and sympathy. We are to do nothing out of rivalry or conceit but in humility, always thinking of others as more important than ourselves. Wow! What a different world we would live in if we lived this way!

Who is it that Holy Spirit is prompting you to speak to? When we speak up, we speak life into their lives. We fill them with blessings of encouragement, love, mercy, and grace of God. What if your speaking up stopped them from committing suicide today? What if you speaking up kept them from making a big mistake in their life? What if you speaking up was the word they needed to surrender their life to Christ? What if you don’t?

Speak up. Be life. Be light. The Holy Spirit will give you the words to say – just speak up.

  • Why utilizing fun conversation starters that spark meaningful conversations will keep interest alive as they continually learn new things about each other.
  • Why keeping romance alive is essential to intimacy and connectivity.

  • How they can understand what they are or are not contributing to the marriage as well as how they might be contributing to problems or potential problems within the relationship through the use of targeted, intentional personal reflections

By Andrew Murray / Aneko Press

639405: Humility & Absolute Surrender Humility & Absolute Surrender

By Andrew Murray / Hendrickson Publishers

For over a century countless readers have found in Andrew Murray a trustworthy guide to the deeper Christian life. As a pastor, evangelist, educator, and writer driven by concern for the spiritual guidance of new converts–and for revival in long-time believers–Murray penned some of the most enduring devotional classics of Christian literature. Though he ministered in a deeply-divided nation, his vision seemed blind to race, class, or political persuasion. And from a remote corner of South Africa, his preaching, teaching, and writing would eventually fuel spiritual awakening with a worldwide impact.

This edition pairs Humility and Absolute Surrender in one volume. Together these classics reflect Murray’s longing for a closer walk with Christ, and call us to a life of holiness and virtue, empowered not by our own strength but by the indwelling Holy Spirit. Hardcover.

He was a man who walked courageously with his peers, and walked humbly with his God. His is a life worth emulating.

25600: Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness, Updated Edition Humility: The Journey Toward Holiness, Updated Edition

By Andrew Murray / Bethany House

When Jesus “made himself nothing … taking the nature of a servant,” He modeled for all believers true humility. Murray calls this “our true nobility” and “the distinguishing feature of discipleship.” In twelve brief but powerful chapters, Murray journeys through Scripture and Christ’s life, underscoring the utmost need for humility—as opposed to pride—in the Christian’s life. With insightful, penetrating clarity, Murray calls all Christians to turn from pride, empty themselves, and study the character of Christ to be filled with His grace. Often called the best work on humility ever written, this edition has been edited for today’s reader.

By Erin Davis / Lifeway

The honor and image of the throne is at stake. Help girls understand that their sense of entitlement won’t get them anywhere in the kingdom of God. Humility is essential, and True Princess will guide girls in grades 6-12 through Scripture as a group and individually to help them understand the importance of living as a daughter of the King. (7 Sessions)

904379: From Pride to Humility: A Biblical Perspective From Pride to Humility: A Biblical Perspective

By Stuart Scott / Focus Publishing

God has given us a model to follow, in order to be what he wants us to be, and that model is the person Jesus Christ. We must first want to glorify God with our lives and realize that it is Christ likeness that will help us to do that. The humility of Jesus Christ is his most stunning attribute, and the sin of pride is probably the most detestable to God. Pride is a form of self-worship and is often manifested in the most subtle ways.

Contained in this small volume is an exhaustive list of manifestations of pride, which we must put-off, followed by the challenging attributes of humility, which Christians can put on through the spirit.

What is the secret to praying prayers that really “work”?
