Starting Your Revival

by | Apr 7, 2016 | Woman

There’s much talk for the need of revival throughout the world, in our nation and in the body of Christ. And this is certainly true, but I’m not sure if God’s people understand how to make this happen.

We can fill large auditoriums with God’s people, have the most popular preachers and Christian singers, get people to sing and dance throughout the night and still not have revival. We can travel the world and revisit where amazing moves of the Holy Spirit took place and still not enter into true revival.

Why? Because revival is a matter of the individual’s spiritual heart. It involves self-judgment and repentance. Spiritual revival resurrects the dead and gives oxygen so that the spirit can breathe again.

True revival is not staged, and it doesn’t come cheap. It doesn’t transfer from one person to another, you have to go after it for yourself.

You must look at yourself with your spiritual eyes wide open, and recognize your utter desperation for the Spirit of the Living God. Become the deer that David describes in Psalm 42 that is so thirsty it pants in desperation for the water. This is how we are to desire our Lord, Jesus Christ.

“As the deer pants after the water brooks, so my soul pants after You, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When will I come and appear before God? My tears have been my food day and night, while they always say to me, ‘Where is your God?'” (Ps. 42: 1-3).

If you are thirsty for God, I encourage you to fast 40 days, Daniel style. Not only will you cleanse your body by eating fruits and vegetables, but spiritually you will cleanse your spirit by the washing of His Word, and learn to enter into fellowship with Him, pray daily for the healing of our nation and break through to the realm of the miraculous for yourself and your loved ones.

Make sure to have on hand a supply of fruits and vegetables you enjoy. You can juice these, make them into smoothies, or eat them whole, cooked or raw, organic or non-organic, however you prefer. Drink lots of water, caffeine-free tea and natural fruit juices. Make sure to eliminate added sugars, and do not use salt.

Have your Bible on hand, and a journal. A notebook is just fine for journaling.

What should you read? Let me recommend a chapter from Proverbs a day. If the date is the 6th of the month, then you read Proverbs 6. If it is the 18th of the month then you read Proverbs 18. And so on and so forth. I would also recommend you read through the book of Acts, one chapter a day, and when you finish with that, go to the book of Revelation. Make this time personal and examine your heart according to the Word of God that you read that day.

Journal what the Lord shows you during this time. And go back over your notes often.

Pray in the Spirit morning, noon and night. And write down your prayer requests in your journal. Make sure to include answered prayers in your journal as well.

If you will put your all into this time of prayer and fasting, you will enter into the place of true revival.
