#Prayer of Repentance Day 2 of 10 #Dream Revival
The Ninevites believed God. A fast was proclaimed, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth.” (JONAH 3:5)
None of man’s wickedness is hidden before God. He sees it all, and it may come to a point where it demands the specific warning and judgment of God. Jonah was a reluctant prophet. He didn’t want to do what God told him to do. Though Jonah did everything he could to resist the first call of God, after Jonah repented God called him again – though God was under no obligation to do it. He did it out of mercy and grace.
How many of us who have been called to deliver the word of Jehovah, would still be doing it, if it were not for this patient and perfecting grace of God? Surely not many! How have we failed Him, and broken down in our ministry; and often not on ground so high as that of Jonah’s failure.” (Morgan)
God was determined to do the work through Jonah, so He did not give up on the reluctant prophet. God is committed to doing His work through a man.
God has put the seed thought of Revival in Singapore in our heart. We need to seek God`s guidance and act upon to see how shall this city be moved to repentance.
Repentance begins with believing God. As we believe Him and His Word, we have the power to transform our lives as He wills. You can do many other things associated with repentance, but if they do not begin with believing on and trusting God, they are all useless works of the flesh.
Any real revival or repentance will begin with faithful preaching and faithful hearing of God’s Word, just as it was in Nineveh.
Repentance is an action, doing something.
Repentance does not describe what you must do to turn to God; it describes the very process of turning to God. When we truly turn to Him, we turn away from the things that displease Him.
