God's Help for Our Nation — Pursuing Spiritual Awakening!

We are celebrating the 237th birthday of our beloved nation. America has enjoyed God’s lavish favor. Yet as we scan the horizon of our country’s future, any fair assessment would acknowledge a host of dangerous storms.

Our nation, which was born in 1776, needs to be reborn in the coming days. We need a great spiritual awakening in America. We need for God to move in miraculous power. We need the kind of revival that shakes this nation from sea to shining sea! We need to activate the humble Scriptural plea, “Restore us, O God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved!” (Psalm 80:7)

King David loved his nation. He acknowledged that the most important needs were not political, financial, medical, meteorological or educational—but the greatest national need was spiritual. He knew his nation needed to turn back to God and experience a rebirth of righteousness.

But how do you activate that type of monumental change?

In the late 1800s, there was an evangelist named Gipsy Smith (1860-1947) who traveled the world. One day, a group of people from a nearby community came to him and inquired, “We so desperately want to see revival in our area. What should we do?”

Gipsy prescribed to them, “Go home. Lock yourself in your bedroom. Take a piece of chalk. Put a circle on the floor of your bedroom. Kneel in that circle and pray fervently and brokenly that God will start revival in that circle!”

If you want to see a great spiritual awakening in America, don’t wait for Washington and Hollywood to repent. Instead, let authentic revival begin in your heart today by promising God that you will passionately pursue Christ-like character and renew your resolve to love Him and to love others!
