  • Wilt thou not revive us again

    Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee? Psalms 85:6

    Psalm 85 is a prayer for revival, but also a testimony of our dependence on a Holy God. If anything eternal or spiritual is ever done it is because God has done it. He may use human hands but the underlying motivation is from God. So the question is raised, “Wilt thou {God} not revive us again?” Will we, in our lifetime, see a national revival in our country? Will we see our churches turn to God and truth again? In light of the things we see happening in our churches and our nation is it possible for God to bring revival?

    There are many who say we have no hope, our nation is gone, our churches have no power and we have little to no influence with God. I must admit I agree, but I also know that this is not the first time this kind of thing has happened in our churches and our nation. The answer then is the answer now; our churches and our nation turning to God openly and collectively. That means all of us who are called Christian must admit that we need an outpouring of the Spirit of God on us and a turning to God. This is our only help and hope.

    When we have leadership in our churches preaching and teaching that we are sinners and must repent and that we as the Christian community have forsaken the true and living God for the gods of material and immorality, then we will be able to cry out “wilt thou not revive us again?

    When the churches {saved people} begin to get right with God and repent, then we will see our nation begin to get right with God. They in high government places will have no choice because there will be a great move of God that they cannot resist.

    What’s happening in America is the failure of God’s people to be obedient to God and the Bible. God has no choice but to bring judgement on us for our sin. We cannot cry out to God for revival because we have not cried out to God for repentance.
