THINK ABOUT IT
I have noticed different schools of thought regarding revival -
One group doesnt really see the need for a change in the church - things are fine as they are.
One group realizes we need a revival, but is too comfortable or too busy to work, pray, and fast to see a revival.
One group recognizes the need for revival, but does not know what to do about it.
One group sees the need and urgently tries to tell everyone what is wrong with the church, and how we need to get back to doing things the way they did before, when revivals came. People in this group are often too involved in what everyone else should do to seek revival personally.
I have heard of a few people who, disregarding what anyone else does or does not do, earnestly and humbly seek God for their own renewal and revival, and are willing to obey God and continue to seek Him until revival comes.
In which group are you?
Have you noticed how much praying for revival has been going on of late and how little revival has resulted? I believe the problem is that we have been trying to substitute praying for obeying, and it simply will not work. To pray for revival while ignoring the plain precept laid down in Scripture is to waste a lot of words and get nothing for our trouble.
Prayer will become effective when we stop using it as a substitute for obedience.
