Where to from here? How can our repentance and prayers be sustained until revival and awakening come?
On a separate piece of paper write down the responses to the following prompts as if you were confessing your sins to God and asking Him to forgive you. Don’t be in a hurry to finish, but brutally examine each area with all honesty and with the Spirit’s strength
You might want to begin this journey with Psalm 51, Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O Lord, my strength and my redeemer.
Psalm 139:23 Search me, O God, and know my heart and see if there be any wicked way in me.
Start with the Great Commandment Mark 12:30-31. Do you love God with everything you are and do you love others as you love yourself?
Next, is there coldness or lack of prayer in your life? What about the study of God’s Word?
Third, Jesus said if when we are praying if we have any issue with someone else, to forgive and ask forgiveness.
Fourth, do you have any outstanding lies you have told that you need to straighten out? Honesty brings relief.
Fifth, is there any sexual sin lurking? There is a strong power urging you to give in to fleshly living, don’t!
Sixth, have you slandered anyone? Confess it.
Seventh, are there times when your words have grieved the Holy Spirit living in you, maybe wounding others?
Last, are your closest relationships; husband, wife, children, brothers, sisters, are you at peace with them?
The Pain We Need (MP3)
Hosea 10:12 Sow with a view to righteousness, reap in accordance to loyalty; break up the hard ground of your hearts, for it is time to seek the Lord that He may come and shower righteousness on you.
PAIN brings desperation, which leads to REPENTANCE that brings God’s FORGIVENESS which brings RELIEF.
Psalm 32:3-5 When I refused to confess my sin, my body wasted away, and I groaned all day long. Day and night your hand of discipline was heavy on me, my strength evaporated like water in the summer heat. Finally, I confessed all my sins to you and stopped trying to hide my guilt. I said to myself, “I will confess my rebellion to the Lord.” And you forgave me! All my guilt is gone.
We don’t SIN in generalities, so don’t REPENT in generalities, be SPECIFIC!
