While praying about the events unfolding around the world and within our borders, as well as for revival in our country, I saw a dry, cracked stream bed. As I looked at it, small trickles of water began to fill the cracks from below. As the water level rose and the earth drank it all in, I heard Him whisper that His remnant of faithful children will be as the water, slowly filling the cracks in the stream bed until the stream is full and flowing with water, bursting its banks.
Our country may appear to have spiritually dried out and broke its moral compass, but God has a faithful remnant rising up from the inside, saturating the cracks and crevices first before overflowing into a vibrant and bubbly stream teaming with life.
Isa 35:6 The lame will leap like a deer, and those who cannot speak will sing for joy! Springs will gush forth in the wilderness, and streams will water the wasteland (NLT)
Isa 35:7 The parched ground will become a pool, and springs of water will satisfy the thirsty land. Marsh grass and reeds and rushes will flourish where desert jackals once lived.
Isa 35:8 And a great road will go through that once deserted land. It will be named the Highway of Holiness. Evil-minded people will never travel on it. It will be only for those who walk in God’s ways; fools will never walk there.
Psalm 85:6 Won’t You revive us again, so Your people can rejoice in You?
Psalm 85:10 Unfailing love and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed!
1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have reserved seven thousand in Israel, all whose knees have not bowed to Baal, and every mouth that has not kissed him (NKJV).
The Lord has impressed upon me to fast and pray regarding these events one day a week for 7 weeks. Beginning today at I will be starting this – fasting during the day and beginning prayer at 7pm EST. Anyone who would like to join me is welcome, when two or three are gathered in His name, Jesus is with us.
We must begin to stir ourselves up and rise up in our most holy faith!
This week’s prayer focus is the Church worldwide – pray for safety, protection, boldness and courage. Please share anything the Lord impresses upon you during this time. He loves when the church prays for the church!
Buckle up, this is going to be a fantastic and bumpy ride! 🙂
