Is there really any Hope for us today?
We as a nation need a Spiritual Awakening!
We as the church need a Spiritual Awakening!
Is a true Spiritual Awakening even possible today? How do we get there?
While we must recognize the sovereignty of God in sending spiritual awakenings, I believe that 2 Chronicles 7:14 offers us tremendous hope for a great awakening in these days.
“Then if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways,
I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and restore their land.”
2 Chronicles 7:14
First, Spiritual Awakening must begin with God’s people…”If my people who are called by my name…” It begins in the lives of people who are related to God personally. Second, Spiritual Awakening must follow God’s plan. As far as I know, Prayer has accompanied every great spiritual awakening in history. Prayer in which we humble ourselves…Earnest prayer that is not so much for God to do something, or to give us something, rather it is seeking the Lord himself. Also, prayer that is truly repentant…”turn from their wicked ways.”
We must remember that Spiritual Awakening is based upon God’s promises for those who seek the Lord with all their hearts. God says, “I will hear from heaven and forgive their sins and restore (heal) their land.”
Throughout history, God has from time to time sent a Spiritual Awakening to His people.
Oh that He might do it again in our day.
“Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you?” Psalm 85:6
