“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Revival, in Biblical terms, is a full, total and complete return to God, manifesting in a relationship where believers truly love God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength. Motivated by that love, they move in Holy Spirit power to see the Kingdom of God manifested. Such manifestations are sinners called to repent, who respond with a genuine and sincere heart, convicted by the Holy Spirit of their sinfulness. Miracles abound with broken hearts, shattered emotions and sick and disease ridden bodies rejoice for the touch of God. In a state of Revival, believers in unison, move under the power of the Holy Spirit to see their world turned upside down!
Believers long for this, however, in studying God’s promise of Revival in 2 Chronicles 7:14, this promise is conditional.
Let’s do our part, for surely God will do His!
