Might the Holy Spirit already be at work in you drawing you to Himself, stirring you to pray, moving you to pray for a fresh awakening, a new touch of God? What do you think God could do in your life, your church, your nation if you began praying for revival? No one knows the answer— yet. But one thing is absolutely certain: If the moral deterioration expressed through corruption, lying, violence, and greed in our nation grieves you, if the growing indifference to the good news of salvation saddens you, if the break-up of marriages, families, and other cherished relationships hurts you, if these and other sorrows have stirred in you a new hunger for God, you are not alone. If your prayer is that our nation turns from its prodigal ways and comes home to a loving Father, if your heart beats in unison with the people about whom you’ve been reading, then you are already part of this Jesus-Now Awakening!
Be filled with expectation and hope for all that God is now unfolding in North America and all that is yet to come. Be glad, and be aware. The current spiritual awakening is not without potential obstacles and threats that can cause spiritual blindness. Imagine Jesus standing before you, close enough to reach out and touch. You simply walk past Him because something has seriously harmed your vision, which means you don’t have eyes to see. Because He has loved you since forever, He turns around and calls your name. But because something has damaged your hearing, you keep walking, unaware that it’s Jesus calling you, calling you to turn around, calling you to Him. How would you feel? What would you do if you had eyes to see and ears to hear? Isn’t it time we looked at what on earth could be keeping you and me from joining Jesus in the great Jesus-Now Awakening that’s already begun?
