Revival is the heart’s full surrender to God in every area.
The Christian must constantly live in revival. It is not a week long event. Christ provided our example by saying “not my will, but thine.” This submission was motivated by His love for the Father.
Jesus is the measure of Christian living and not man. Living like Jesus is living in revival. So, what is stopping you from being like Jesus? Is it fear of disapproval? Bitterness? Jealousy? Anger? Selfishness? Pride? A Critical spirit? Love of the world, its riches, popularity, and glory? Comfort over commitment? Laziness? A Dead spiritual walk? Apathy toward souls? Sinful Entertainment? Dishonesty? Perversion? Lack of hunger for God? Lust? Self-righteousness? Comparison? Envy? Discouragement instead of satisfaction in God? Lack of love? Hatred? Love of man’s approval?
Whatever it is, confess it and begin revival once again in your life. Stay yielded to the Holy Spirit and you are experiencing revival!
James 4:6-10 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, yesinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.
9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and your joy to heaviness.
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
