Today was the last day of our Spring Worship Encounter. I have been looking through my notes to review what God is speaking to us in this season of history. Again last night, Pastor Duncan spoke from 2 Chronicles 7:13-15. He said God is waiting for us to REPENT, so He can then turn His eyes and ears upon us and our prayers.
People have been praying, but God has not turned his ears to listen to us! We still have a plague running wild throughout the world, showing me that something is missing for our prayers.
Isaiah 59:1-2 Behold, the LORD'S hand is not so short That it cannot save; Nor is His ear so dull That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God, And your sins have hidden His face from you so that He does not hear.
When we asked Jesus to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness, we made a covenant with Him. We agreed to serve Him as our Savior and king. But we cannot serve Him in our unholy state, that is to say with our fleshly natures. And that is what we have done! Thinking the little we do for Him is enough. He gave His life for us, and He expects us to give our whole heart to Him. It is then that He will hear our prayers.
Yesterday someone sent this prophecy to me from a great pastor and prophet named David Wilkerson. In 1986 he wrote: “I see a plague coming on the world; and the bars, church, and government shut down. The plague will hit New York City and shake it like it has never been shaken. The plague is going to force prayerless believers into radical prayer, into their Bibles, and repentance will be the cry from true men of God in the pulpit. And out of it will come a third Great Awakening that will sweep America and the world.”
He is speaking of the plague we are facing right now! Did you catch what he said about prayer? He said our prayers have been FAITHLESS, but this plague will force us to pray radical prayers. It will also force us into our Bibles to search for God and His truth as never before. Pastors who are true men of God will lead the cry for repentance in their churches. And then, a great spiritual awakening will sweep across America and all around the World. This sounds fantastic. But, we have to do our part for this to transpire.
God is RESETTING His people right now to walk in His ways and not our ways!
Please take today and tomorrow to sit at God’s feet.
Let Him expose your ways that do not line up with His. Let Him share His heart with you, instead of you doing all the talking. And then REPENT, and accept His realignment of your ways. Then you can confidently pray, knowing God will hear your prayers that are lined up with His heart, and He will answer them.
Please share with us what God is revealing to you in the comments section of this blog. We need to encourage each other and spur each other on to do good works.
