“Life is an uphill battle. But it’s our choice whether or not we make it up the mountain. We can choose to give up or keep climbing to see the view at the top. The view is almost always worth the climb.”-Alexis Wohler. God put this saying on my heart when I was going through […]
We need revival. The entire nation needs a renewal and revival. The only way that is going to happen is if we, as Christian’s start to exemplify the kingdom of God in all of our affairs. We should try to stop with the 10% Christianity of going to church on Sunday and that is it. We need more Christians to start stepping out in faith and boldness and quit being fearful. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For the Spirit of God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.” We should come into the full realization of the power we carry. We carry the power of God within us. We carry God’s power, His truth and His love within all of us. They are meant to be spread around the world, with everyone. When we come into the full realization of the power Christ allows us to have, we can begin to allow Him to work through us. He walks alongside us daily. Through all of our struggles and hard times, whether they are financial or physical, God is allowing new revivals and new aspects to be seen by us and by other people.
God may be allowing a revival to take place in your church. He may allow a revival of the spirit within us each day. He may also help your family to experience a revival through feeling His peace even when there are hard times.
The power that God displays is astronomical. Knowing God and what He can do is such an amazing honor and privilege. Look at how the disciples were able to heal people and bring people back from the dead because the Holy Spirit rested on them in the form of tongues of fire. Acts 2:3 says, 3″They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.” The disciples were given that power to speak in different languages and were led by the Holy Spirit to share the Gospel, by God Himself.
It is also how we come to know God in a more personal way. If we believe in His power, and know that He is, can and will work in every aspect of our lives, we are allowing His great plans to take place and allowing His will to be fulfilled. We can give Him complete control over our lives through our finances, spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. He can heal diseases in our household, and cure us of our own selfish desires. He can start the new feeling within us, of wanting to live for and with Him in our lives, day in and day out. When we start to live for God, we realize that He gives us a peace that we can not understand, so we know it can only come from Him.
Satan can make us believe that we are not worth of bringing people to Christ. Again, that is not true. If we weren’t supposed to lead people to Him, how would anyone know about Him? It is our God-given responsibility, not to mention our calling in life to help lead others to Christ. We are also here to help people return to Christ. We can even renew ourselves through finding Him anew every day through any and every circumstance.
What a blessing it is to know that we have the power of God constantly working on us, within us, and beside us. What an honor to know that He wants to renew our lives.
