Send Revival?

I read something interesting last week: “Asking God to send revival implies that He is withholding it.” That got me thinking. I don’t think any of us would want to suggest that God is withholding revival, so where does that leave us? Revival starts in our hearts – in my heart, to be specific. I am the only one who can make the decision to spend time in the Word and in prayer with the Father. Do I want to? No. But I want to want to. Does that make sense? And the more time I spend in the Word and in prayer, the more I want to. Funny how that works. I wrote myself a little note during church last Sunday (yes, I was paying attention to the sermon), and asked this question: “How would my life be different if I actually believed that the Bible is true?” You’re probably shaking your head at me now, piously declaring that of course, the Bible is true. Do you really believe that? If you do, are you acting like it’s true? Our churches would be much different places if so-called “believers” actually believed, and then put that belief into action. The world would be a different place. Just some food for thought. Do you believe God?
