Psalms 85:6 – Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you? (NIV)
In the 15th century, Scottish theologian, John Knox prayed: ‘Lord, give me Scotland, or I die’. The common prayer in the days of William J. Seymour, a one-eyed African-American preacher who led the Azusa Street revival in Los Angeles between 1906-1915, was: ‘Lord, this is another day that hell must lose souls. Please, we are here. Use us’. No wonder, after that meeting, the brethren from England went back and gathered daily in the cold praying: ‘Lord, give us men that will spread Your fire in our streets.’
In 1 Corinthians 9:16, Apostle Paul said: ‘Woe is me if I preach not the gospel’ because it is sad, that what we have now in the Christendom are people who feel comfortable seeing the lost perish. They are spiritually lukewarmness and only crave for microwave miracles— or can we still find believers who will fast and pray as seen in our Bible reading? Remember that after Paul’s encounter, he first asked: ‘Lord, what will You have me do…?’ (Acts 22:10). But today! When we fall under the anointing, what we immediately expect are marriage proposals and employment letters.
Beloved, many are yet to have that complete experience with Christ. What they care about are material things, and they expect demons to obey? No way! (Acts 19:15). If you are tired of ‘fire-less-ness’; it is time to wake up and seek God in righteousness (Daniel 9:3-10). As you pray, get set for the supernatural that will set you ablaze like the pilgrims of old.
Hymn: Let the Fire Fall on Me – William J. Henry (1953)
1. Lord, please forgive me, revive me and use me as Your instrument of change.
1. Father, please let the vessel, time, personality and instruments of deliverance, locate me today!
2. Lord, please give me the best in my own time.
3. Holy Ghost! Breathe on my body, soul, spirit, family and the church.
BE BORN AGAIN
