I’m back home from Revive Twin Cities and just reflecting on the past couple of days. I am so very blessed!! I will be thinking about the experiences I’ve just had for the rest of my life – they were that life changing. I went out on one of the teams yesterday to share The Gospel. We ended up in a pretty tough neighborhood in St. Paul. One of the individuals The Lord led us to was a believer in Christ but was currently struggling with his faith. When we asked how we could pray for him he asked that we pray for is faith to be increased. I led our group in prayer to ask The Holy Spirit to rise up in this man and guide him back to Jesus and to fully equip him with the faith he needs to commit his life to Christ. When we were done praying we gave him a Bible. There was a gleam of excitement in his voice as he talked about sharing the new Bible we’d just given him with his children. I have no doubt that the simple act of some strangers coming up to him and asking if they could pray for him had just changed his life – The Lord led us to this man for a reason!! Wow, what an experience for our team to have been used as the hands, feet, and voice on the ground!!
Tuesday morning during prayer before all the teams went out, the worship team asked us to all get up from our chairs and while holding hands with your neighbors to make a circle. Folks, there were so many of us that the circle encompassed the entire perimeter if the football field we were on. I am telling you there is no better way to sing and worship our Lord than united in a way like that – what a powerful experience.
There were a lot of other experiences I could share with you but I’m already getting rather wordy. Needless to say, I can’t wait for it to be announced when and where the next Time To Revive event will be held at!!
For everyone reading this, I pray that The Lord will ignite a fire in you that will bring you to a new level in your own faith and give you boldness to get out of your current comfort level and in your own ways be the hands, the feet, and the voice for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In Jesus name, Amen.
