Confess our sins!
Ask God to reveal to you specific sins to be confessed in each of the following categories:
â€¢ Personal sins Psalm 139:23, 24
â€¢ Sins in your home Psalm 101:2-5
â€¢ Sins of Godâ€™s people Nehemiah 1:6,7;9:33-35; Daniel 9:5,6,10
â€¢ Sins of our nation Isaiah 1:4
GOD’S PRESCRIPTION FOR REVIVAL:
II Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from Heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
There are several simple and easy to understand principles in that one Verse of Scripture explaining how to obtain Revival from our Father who lives in Heaven. Let me point out a few of them:
1 – Only true, born-again Christians can expect to be able to pray and get Revival from God.
2 – We must truly humble ourselves in prayer before our God and acknowledge our personal sins, and that we are unworthy and undeserving of His mercy and grace.
3 – We must pray…and really mean business about our praying.
4 – We must seek God’s face with all our hearts. In Jeremiah 29:13-14, we read, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. ” That doesn’t sound like casual, lazy praying, does it? Neither does SEEK MY FACE.
5 – We must be willing to confess AND forsake our individual personal daily sins…before we can expect God to hear and answer our prayers for Revival or anything else. After talking about our great High Priest, Jesus the Son of God, Hebrews 4:16 tells us to “…come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may OBTAIN MERCY (first), and (afterwards) find grace to help in time of need.”
6 – Then, God will hear from Heaven where He lives…where He alone has Revival to give…and after forgiving our individual and collective sins…He will heal our land by sending the Revival we so desperately need.
7 – We must humble ourselves before the Lord in prayer…refusing to be denied; confessing and forsaking our sins and wicked ways, public and secret, with all our hearts so He will be able to hear our prayers, forgive our sins, heal our local churches, and heal our land we call America or whatever the name of your country may be…with a Heaven-sent, Holy Spirit Revival!
This is the only way to obtain real Revival. God help us to do it!
