Praying for revival....
The Lord gave us a good morning and most of our regular folks were in attendance. We had a young girl with us today who has only ever visited on a Thursday night. It was good to have her with us on a Sunday.
I preached this morning a message which I have preached at our church before. In fact I've preached it twice before. God put it on my heart to preach it again and I did. It is a message on revival from Isaiah 41 on Seeking Revival. It is very close in Scripture to the promise claimed by those who sought the Lord previous to the awakening on the Isle of Lewis in the 1950's. It is the same promise though the specific verses they claimed are three chapters later. Both passage speak about God's Spirit as watered poured out by God.
Will you please pray with us for revival? This alone will meet the need of our community. We can faithfully preach, pray, evangelize.... But, I feel the truth of the song which says, "All is vain unless the Spirit of the Holy One comes down. Brethren pray and Holy Manna shall be showered all around." We have a great platform this week for God to do a great work and we are looking to Him to do it. We have evangelistic meetings with Evangelist John Van Gelderen this Thursday - Sunday. Additionally we are hosting a fellowship meeting on Saturday morning. Thanks for praying with us as we seek the Lord this week.
