Follow Along with the Message

Psalm 85:6 said, “Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?”

Isaiah 57:15 declares, “to revive the heart of the contrite.”

Habakkuk 3:2 prays, “Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, O Lord. Renew them in our day, in our time make them known…”

Biblical revival happens to God’s people determine to follow God’s plan.


Revival will come if…

1. We are Humble

James Hunter said, “We Americans generally want to think of ourselves as good people. That, in many respects, is where the trouble begins.”

James 4:6 says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”


2. We are Prayerful

Jesus taught His disciples to pray by beginning with the greatness of God and then focusing on our needs.


3. We Seek Him


The idea of seeking implies a desire for something of great value.

Psalm 27:8, “My heart says of you, ‘Seek His face!’ Your face, Lord, I will seek.”


4. We Turn from Sin

This is where our “wills” must engage and take action.

Stephen Olford wrote, “to have defilement in our hands, to have dissension in our spirits, and to have doubting in our hearts is to cancel out all effectiveness in prayer.”

God always intends for revival to start with His people.
