Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

by Julia Bruce
CEO & Keynote speaker

Read Monday’s post here: Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

If you missed Monday’s post, start by reading it here. Revival begins with a humble heart that is willing to to say, ” Search me O God.” Each day this week we will focus on a different area of our lives to ask God to search our hearts for anything offensive within us.

Today’s “Search Me” prayer:

Search me, O God, and know my heart. See if there is anything offensive with me in regards to how I worship You.

Search Me, O God, for how I worship You

In Exodus 20, we find the Ten Commandments God gave to Moses. In verse 8, God says, “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.” Today, most religions practice Sunday as their “Sabbath” because Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week. God expects us to keep this day holy. A day of worship and rest in Him. If we are to worship Him, then we need to know what it means to worship. The simplest way to describe worship is reflecting back to God what we think He’s worth. In 1 Chronicles 16, we find four ways in which we worship God.

Search Me, O God, for how I make His deeds know, sing His praise, seek His face, and remember His marvelous works

Make His deeds known among the people


The first way we worship God is by making His deeds known to others. 1 Chronicles 16:8 says, “Oh, give thinks to the Lord! Call upon His name; make known His deed among the peoples!” Take a moment today and identify God’s deeds in your life. Choose at least three people to tell what God is doing in you and ask them what God is doing in their life. Spend time today thanking Him for what He is doing in your life.

Sing songs or praise, worship, and adoration

The second way we worship God is singing songs of praise, worship and adoration. 1 Chronicles 16:9 says, Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; talk of all His wondrous works!” If you think you can’t sing, then jump over to Psalm 100 and you’ll find it says to “Make a joyful noise.”

Seek His face continually

The third way we worship God is by seeking His face. 1 Chronicles 16: 10-11 says, “Glory in His holy name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His face evermore! We seek Him when we draw near to Him (James 4:8). We need to seek him continually. He should be our first thought in the morning and the last thought before we go to sleep. He should be in our thoughts all throughout the day, no matter where we are – and if He is, we won’t be going to the wrong places or doing the wrong things. If you feel as if you can’t find God, Jeremiah 29:13 says, “You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”

Remember His marvelous works

The fourth way we worship God is by remembering His marvelous works. 1 Chronicles 16:12 says, “Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth.” What marvelous works has he done today? Did you see a glorious sunrise this morning or a beautiful rainbow after the rain? Did you notice the beauty in the leaves changing colors? Everything around you is there because it is a masterpiece – a work of art – formed by the Creator’s hand so take time to notice His marvelous works and all His wonders.

Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

by Julia Bruce

Read Monday’s post here: Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

If you missed Monday’s post, start by reading it here. Revival begins with a humble heart that is willing to to say, ” Search me O God.” Each day this week we will focus on a different area of our lives to ask God to search our hearts for anything offensive within us.

Today’s “Search Me” prayer:

Search me, O God, and know my heart. See if there is anything offensive with me in regards to how I handle my finances

Search Me, O God, for how much I love money

There is probably no “touchier” subject than money. Financial problems are one of the leading causes of divorce. It is also one of the leading causes of sin. 1 Timothy 6:10 tells us the the love of money is the root of all evil. The more we love money, they more likely we are to do something we shouldn’t to get more of it.

Search Me, O God, for how I manage my finances

Also, how we manage money can either honor God or bring offense. We don’t have to spend our money on things that are sin for us to be offensive in God’s sight. We can also be offensive when we choose to work instead of being in God’s house on Sunday. When we overtax our budgets, leaving no room to tithe, we can be offensive to God. We can be offensive when we spend money unnecessarily and then are not able to meet our financial obligations. In Luke 12:15, Jesus said, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” And Matthew 6:21 tell us, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

Spend some quiet time alone with God and for anything He reveals to you, seek His forgiveness. Ask God to reveal to you where your treasures are. Ask Him to convict you of any love you have for money and for any way you handle your finances that are offensive to Him. Work towards making your greatest treasure your relationship with your heavenly Father. Ask Him each time you make a big or unnecessary purchase if doing so will honor Him.

Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

by Julia Bruce

Read Monday’s post here: Prayers for Revival: Search Me, O God

If you missed Monday’s post, start by reading it here. Revival begins with a humble heart that is willing to to say, ” Search me O God.” Each day this week we will focus on a different area of our lives to ask God to search our hearts for anything offensive within us.

Today’s “Search Me” prayer:

Search me, O God, and know my heart. See if there is anything offensive with me in regards to the words I use and my thoughts.

Search Me, O God, for the acceptable words I speak:

There are two verses to focus on as you ask God to search you for how you speak. The first is Psalm 19:14, which says: “Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.” Are your words acceptable only on Sunday when you’re in church or are they acceptable Monday-Saturday, too? What about when you step on legos in the dark? Are they acceptable when the children are misbehaving? What about when your spouse irritates you? Are your words acceptable in rush hour traffic?

Search Me, O God, for the acceptable words I speak:

The second verse to consider is Ephesians 4:29, which says: “Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.” Corrupting talk tears other people down. It is negative, condescending, complaining, or any other ungodly way we speak.

Spend some quiet time alone with God and for anything He reveals to you, seek His forgiveness. Ask God to convict you of any time your words are corrupting and unacceptable to Him. Ask Him to help you speak words that build others up and show grace. If you catch yourself using corrupting talk, immediately ask God to forgive you, then say three acceptable things about the person or situation for which you spoke corrupting words.

1 Samuel 3:9 – He Knows My Name

April 9 1 Samuel 3 9 NKJV

Samuel was still a youth when he first heard God speak to him. In fact, even though his mother had dedicated him to serving God in the temple, Samuel didn’t even recognize that it was God who was calling his name. Imagine lying in your bed at night, just about to drift off to sleep and you hear your name. How would you respond? Samuel thought it was Eli, the priest. So he jumps out of bed and hurries to Eli to see what he needs. But Eli didn’t call him and the old priest sent him back to bed. This happens three times before the priest finally figures out what’s going on. Now keep in mind we’re talking about the priest and it took three times before he gets its —- its God calling Samuel.

It wasn’t that Samuel was praying, seeking God’s will, and waiting for God to respond. Samuel wasn’t praying for a revival in his nation or for God to get rid of a pandemic virus. Samuel was actually lying down in bed trying to sleep when God calls him by April 9 cttname. That in and of itself should stir a thrill with in our hearts. Our sovereign, omniscient, omnipotent, God – the creator of the heavens of earth, the one who tells the stars to come out, the one who tells the sea “stop there you can go no further” — that God – He calls us by our name. We are never forgotten. We are never out of His sight. We are never in such a crisis that God doesn’t know it. He is a God that loves us with an everlasting and faithful love who desires to have a personal relationship – and He calls us by our name.

I’m reminded of my grandmother. As my sisters and I were growing up she would go through all three of our names and then say, which one are you? God never calls me by another person’s name. In fact, my name is engraved in the palm of His hand. I am that special to Him – and so are you.

Has God ever had a job or a message for you and when God calls your name, you look around like, “Who called me?” Have you ever been seeking His will and you pray and pray, but you never stop and listen? Is the voice of God so unexpected or seldom heard that you don’t recognize His voice? When He calls, are you more likely to lay out a “fleece” like Gideon to see if what you heard was real? Would you be like Moses and out of curiosity say, “Let me go inspect this burning bush that isn’t burning up?” Would you be like Moses and give God all the excuses as to why it shouldn’t be you doing the task He has for you? Or would you be like Samuel and say, “Speak, Lord, your servant hears?”

Is the voice of God so unexpected or seldom heard
that you don’t recognize His voice?

(Click here to tweet)

God is always looking for the people that are ready to not only hear Him, but also have a willing heart to obey Him. Samuel’s very first task is to give old Eli a very difficult message, but as we read the verses that follow, Samuel was obedient. Eli had been Samuel’s guardian and mentor. He did not want to give him bad news, but he was obedient to God. Because Samuel was willing to receive and obey God’s word, we find in verse 21 that “the Lord appeared again in Shiloh. For the Lord revealed Himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.”

God, it amazes me that out of the billions of people who populate the earth and out of all the many more people who have lived since you created Adam – you know my name and you call me by my name. Give us ears to hear you, a heart willing to listen and obey, no matter the difficulty or the cost.

Our key verse for revival is 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.  For the past few  weeks, we have been focusing on repentance.

This week’s memory verse:

Judges 17:6

078924: A Nation in Crisis

A Nation in Crisis

By Ray Stedman / Discovery House

Every day the headlines announce more violence and evil. Our hearts groan as we wonder what life will be like for the next generation. It all seems hopeless, which is probably how Jeremiah felt as he lived among the people of the nation of Judah.

Jeremiah was a reluctant but faithful prophet who spent forty-two years serving God and warning the people to repent. His heart was saddened and angered by the people’s indifference to God and the moral decay that surrounded him. Everything was falling apart–yet Jeremiah continued to seek the Lord.

As we face personal trauma and national crisis, we can learn from the prophet’s example. Ray Stedman walks us through the book of Jeremiah, revealing that repentance was the only answer then–and it’s the only answer today. When people repent, God is faithful to His Word, planting the seeds of new life and giving us hope.

Awakening: How American Can Turn from Economic and Moral Destruction Back to Greatness

By Ralph Reed / Worthy Publishing

Are we watching our nation commit suicide? Is America, like a modern-day Roman Empire, doomed to moral decay and demise?In his new book, Awakening: How America Can Turn from Economic and Moral Destruction to God’s Blessing, Ralph Reed, reveals how the United States has abandoned its founding principles and spiritual heritage. Yet Reed, adviser to the Bush-Cheney campaigns and former executive director of the Christian Coalition, believes better days are ahead for our nation. This book, featuring practical action points and a bold pro-family plan, provides a road map we can follow to restore America back to God’s blessing.

Find out how to reenergize our call to effective citizenship and revive America’s core values of faith, personal responsibility, and liberty. As the 2014 election cycle approaches, Awakening, is a timely plea for people of faith to spark a spiritual and moral awakening that will reverse the cycle of destruction, renew our country, and see God heal our land.

079864: Is This the End? Signs of God"s Providence in a Disturbing New World

Is This the End? Signs of God’s Providence in a Disturbing New World

By Dr. David Jeremiah / Thomas Nelson

Never have the headlines been this jarring, the cultural changes this rapid, or the moral decay this pronounced. What on earth is happening? After each new occurrence, the most oft-heard questions are, “Will the world ever be the same again?” and “Where is God in all of this?”Over the last few decades, Dr. David Jeremiah has become one of the world’s most sought-after Christian leaders on topics that deal with biblical application and modern culture. And few would dispute that the pace at which things are currently changing is unprecedented. The time has come to accept this new normal, Jeremiah says, and understand how God’s hand is still at work on His eternal plan for mankind.

No one can afford to ignore these warnings, but all can better understand the greater story and the role we each play in this changing world. From prophetic clues in Scripture to an understanding of the power of Christ in all believers, this book directs us on a clear path forward.

The Message of Joel, Micah, and Habakkuk: The Bible Speaks Today [BST]

By David Prior / InterVarsity Press

Where is God in times of disaster? How can God allow suffering? What are God’s people to do about moral decay in society? While people throughout the ages have long pondered these questions, three of the Minor Prophets–Joel, Micah, and Habbakuk–provide insights to these perennial problems.The Bible Speaks Today is a series of both Old Testament and New Testament expositions, which are characterized by a threefold ideal: to expound the biblical text with accuracy, to relate it to contemporary life, and to be readable.

David Prior has pastured churches in Cape Town, South Africa, and Oxford, England. He now travels widely, lecturing on the local church around the world. He is the author of The Message of 1 Corinthians in the Bible Speaks series.

629152: Strong Men In Tough Times

Strong Men In Tough Times

By Ed Cole / Resolute Books

Society’s widening gap between technological achievement and moral decay compels men of courage, integrity and true manhood to stand strong.In a quest for satisfaction, many men have lost the meaning of manhood, surrendering ideals to things immoral, illegal, unethical or irresponsible. Today’s tough times require men to overcome dangerous philosophies and bring hope, dignity and order back to a world in desperate need – men who are willing to be heroes.”

Newly edited edition with foreward by Brian Houston.

710399: Come Down, Lord!

Come Down, Lord!

By Roger Ellsworth / Banner of Truth

Come Down, Lord! is a succinct, readable and biblically-based treatment of the vital theme of revival. Its seven short chapters go directly to the heart of the matter, as their headings indicate: We miss You; We need you; We wait for You; We will meet You; We have wronged You; We belong to You; We beseech You.Taking as his starting place the widespread absence of the sense of God’s holy presence and our need of his grace, Roger Ellsworth traces the profound analysis of the church’s spiritual decay outlined in Isaiah 63:3-64:12, and applies its message to our times.

135512: Nothing Is Wasted: How God Redeems What is Broken

Nothing Is Wasted: How God Redeems What is Broken

By Joseph Bentz / Beacon Hill Press

In a world that can feel overwhelming, it is easy to see loss as the overriding theme of our existence. From the stress of finances to the pain of aging, we see decay all around us. We see the corrupt nature of a fallen world.

Despite the seeming chaos, God’s loving song of redemption echoes through every fiber of creation. Sometimes we hear the melody loud and clear, but more often it is like the refrain of a musical score that is background to a film-present but so subtle we may be unaware of it.

In Nothing Is Wasted: How God Redeems What is Broken Joseph Bentz explores how God clues us in to the big picture of redemption and eternity amid the most difficult and unlovely things in our lives. He helps us remember how a faithful and all-powerful God desires to transform our pain into beauty.

This book includes 365 daily activities and takes you on a journey through Biblical principles about Godly marriage that you can then apply to your marriage, as well as helping you talk through concepts that can help you develop a solid relationship. Inside you will find simple, quick activities that include:

• Scripture to memorize and meditate on
• Conversation Starters
• Concepts from the Bible on Godly marriages
• Romance Builders
• Relationship Builders
• Personal reflections
• Date ideas
• Group date ideas for you and other Christian couples

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.

James 4:10 - Humble yourselves

 

 

In 2020, we are praying for a revival in America. The path to revival is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14. “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves…” As we focus on humbling ourselves, we created this design based on James 4:10 to help us remember to humble ourselves before the Lord. (Click the shirt to go to the store). The design is also available in mugs, mousepad, apron, backpacks, poster, pillow case cover, canvas and more.

Cover_mBOOKING NOW! Be a host site for the NEW God, Love & Marshmallow Wars Book Tour & Couples Conference:

This event helps couples understand why the daily activities found in the book will equip them to build a stronger marriage and the book provides them with 365 intentional activities to take what they learn at the event and apply it on a daily basis. Through the event, couples will discover the Biblical “why” behind the categories of activities found in the book and the “how” these activities are important to building a stronger marriage. Focus points of the event includes :

  • How memorizing scripture together and studying God’s Word together as they study, meditate and apply scriptures related to marriage and life issues will help them develop marriages that honor God.
  • 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 making memories and working together builds relationship investment bonds and how these investment bonds can become the knots that keeps them together through the tough times.
  • 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
  • Why it is important that couples never stop dating and how group dates with Christian friends can be both an encouragement and accountability to their own relationship.

During the event, couples will be given an activity from each focus point to do together, making this event an interactive, fun, and engaging event with practical, hands-on learning. Unlike other couple events that are over when the event ends, couples who attend the GLMW event will be able to apply what they learn when utilizing the book on a daily basis for a year. Since the book is not dated, couples are able to reuse the activities year after year to continue being intentional in strengthening their relationship with each other and with God as they strive to live out God’s design for marriage every day.

Learn more about hosting this event at your church or conference site by clicking here.

About the book: The GLMW book contains 365 daily challenges for couples to strengthen their relationships to each other and with God. Couples will complete activities such as Scripture memory, conversation starters, relationship builders, learning about Biblical marriage, romance builders, personal reflections, and date ideas.

453542: Humility Humility

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.

280322: Great Lives: Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility Great Lives: Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility

By Charles Swindoll / Thomas Nelson

Elijah: A Man of Heroism and Humility is the fifth volume in the best-selling Great Lives from God’s Word series by Charles Swindoll. Swindoll presents an honest picture of this ordinary man who God transformed to be His personal spokesman against evil and idolatry in the ancient world. 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.

868423: True Princess: Embracing Humility in an All-About-Me World, Member Book True Princess: Embracing Humility in an All-About-Me World, Member Book

By Erin Davis / Lifeway

A True Princess is special because she is the daughter of someone special. Everything she does points back toward her Father. If a princess acts recklessly, it isn’t just her reputation that suffers. 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.

By Anne Graham Lotz / Zondervan

In this adaptation of her bestselling book, The Daniel Prayer, Anne Graham Lotz unlocks a powerful pattern of prayer for claiming the promises of God.

What is the secret to praying prayers that really “work”? In Storming the Gates of Heaven, a plan for praying effective prayers that God answers is presented through unpacking the ancient prayer of the prophet Daniel, a prayer that moved heaven and changed a nation and one that even today can deliver on God ‘s promises.

Here is the secret to answered prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon.
