Day 1

Awaken Us: 40 Days to Fast & Pray – Day 1

 

The world is in chaos.  We are very uncomfortable in America because we can see how things could get very bad for us here if something doesn’t change.  Prosperity for  the nation and us as individuals is in serious jeopardy.  I know what we should do!  Let’s pray for revival.  Revival will make it all better.  Then we can get back to being healthy, wealthy and wise.

Not so fast!.  Are we praying for revival so that God will make our problems go away?  If that’s the case why don’t we just pray honestly—Something like, Lord please make the bad things go away and let us hold on to the good things.  By the way, Lord, some more good things would be nice.”  No, wait, that doesn’t sound very spiritual.  You see, the key is not in holding on to what we have.  The key is in being so close to God that we will just trust him.

Jeremiah 29:13, “You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. “  We can’t fully understand that He is all we need until he is all we have.  God is not looking for a people whose motive is to get all they can get from the “Great ATM” in the sky.  God is looking for a people to trust Him.  Those He will bless with a prosperity of the soul and heart in ways beyond our comprehension.
