I was praying Psalm 145 this morning and as I read these verses “Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts, And I will tell of Your greatness. They shall eagerly utter the memory of Your abundant goodness
And will shout joyfully of Your righteousness.” and began to pray, The Lord asked me a question. He said “Do you know how many people have been touched by the power of God and revival in this country?” When God asks you a question It is best to think before you speak. As I pondered the question the Lord asked me this morning this is what I wrote.
From Azuza street in the early 1900s to the tent revivals of Amy Semple McPherson, William Brahman, Smith Wigglesworth, Marie Woodworth-Etter, Billy Sunday, and so many others. We had the Jesus movement; the charismatic movement; the faith movement; Cane Ridge; Red River; the Toronto blessing, the Brownsville revival; the Smithton outpouring; the Kansas City prophets; and many other major movements. This does not include the great awakenings that our nation has experienced. God has done many amazing things in this nation in the past 120 years.
We don’t need another revival, we need to be taught how to remain alive. To whom much is given, much is required (Luke 12:48). We are required to read our own Bible, to pray, to fast, to follow Jesus, we don’t need another event in our generation, we need discipleship, we need training, we need Jesus not a platform or spotlight or pulpit. We need to remember all he has done for us, we need to exercise all we’ve been given, we don’t need another thing. It’s time we grow up. Mature people make use of what they’ve been given they don’t throw it to the side and look for the next new thing. We need to remember, not have another revival.
Psalm 145:11-13 “They shall speak of the glory of Your kingdom And talk of Your power; To make known to the sons of men Your mighty acts And the glory of the majesty of Your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, And Your dominion endures throughout all generations.”
The number of people in this nation that have experienced one or more than one of the things listed above must begin to talk about what God has done, must begin to live what God has done, must begin to tell their children of all God does and is doing. We don’t need another thing, we don’t need another new song to sing, We need to apply what we have learned for we have been given much and from us much is required.
