Charles Finney, the revivalist, he talked about how we need to sit down at times, periodically, like spiritual MOTs; and write down our sins that we can recall of commission and omission, and weep over them.
Brian Edwards, in his book ‘Revival’, gives a good description of revival. It goes like this, it’s quite long: ‘A true Holy Spirit revival is a remarkable increase in the spiritual life of a large number of God’s people, accompanied by an awesome awareness of the presence of sin with a passionate longing for holiness and unusual effectiveness in evangelism, leading to the salvation of many unbelievers’.
Revival comes only by the power from God. As we feel burdened or pressed of the condition of this world, we need to be in constant prayer for power and guidance for the Lord. When everyone catches this fresh fire, we will burn out the willfulness and let God do HIS will in God.
Let us surrender our will to GOD. Let his voice be the only thing that we hear and nothing else. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” (Isaiah 30:21)
