Daily Devotion: Some Thoughts On Revival, Pt 1

Bible Reading: Psalm 85

Key Verse: Verse 6Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?”

Key Words: Wilt thou not revive us again

Have you genuinely considered what a real revival really is?

  • Revival is not a week of meetings.

  • Revival is not the stirring up of the emotions that faded away after a few days.

  • Revival is not people being saved.

  • Revival is not many being baptized.

  • Revival is not building a new building.

  • Why, revival is not even the sending out of missionaries.

The above is not revival, but it is the results produced by a genuine revival.

The word revival is a fire term. It means to rekindle the flame, so revival is when the person or persons who are born again are on fire for God.

With that in mind let me ask, “Do you need revival? Are you genuinely on fire for God?” If so, read on!

As we read Psalm 85:6, I see three things that leap out at me in regard to revival.

First of all, revival must come from God, “Wilt thou not revive us again?”

Secondly, we must desire revival. Again notice Psalm 85:6, “Wilt thou not revive us again?” When is the last time you asked God to revive you spiritually?

Thirdly, you see the results of revival, “...that thy people may rejoice in thee?” Revival is when we are continually rejoicing in God.

When we rejoice in God, souls will be saved & baptized, buildings will have to be built, the church will then send out missionaries because we are rejoicing in God.

My prayer, even my plea, for each of us is that we will genuinely ask God to send a great revival in our soul.

What to do:

Pray for revival.
