Time was when Jesus got top-billing. The headlines were unmistakable. In cover-story proportions, God got our attention (or at least attempted to).
And time and time again, God’s Spirit manifests itself in life altering ways. Be it at an altar near the front of a church or in an outdoor sanctuary in a baptistry of ocean waves, faith is celebrated in never-to-be-forgotten ways.
But sadly, given the times we live in today, too many have forgotten what God has done and what He has promised to do.
It’s time to be reminded. It’s time to be revived. It’s time for God to restore the years that the locusts have destroyed. It’s time Jesus gets top-billing once again.
Will the winds of Wilmore (gale force strong) blow nationwide before too long? The breezes of God’s Spirit are past due. We need a Great Awakening, where elders dream and young folks sing of what the Lord in our day may yet do.
We need a mighty move of God. And though the critics think it odd, a touch of the Divine means “Listen up!” to what the King of Kings demands as kneeling subjects lift their hands confessing ways our culture’s been corrupt.
And may our hearts be strangely warmed as faith (on fire) is reborn. Revive Your people, Holy God, we pray! Breathe life and love within our souls. Restore our hope and make us whole. O Sovereign Lord, we’re willing! Have Your way!
The state of our union is not what we’d like. There’s growing division. The dawn’s early light has morphed into darkness and shrouded our hope that unity can be restored.
A Congress divided. A White House beet-red from classified docs Biden wants put to bed. And fears of recession that won’t go away just add to our growing despair.
There’re protests in cities. Things aren’t black and white when it comes to policing and criminals’ rights. The blindfold of Justice needs to be retied while those who are guilty are judged.
The Church is in conflict over what Scripture means. Are it’s teachings still timeless or what culture deems? Should preachers be silenced from speaking their minds? Has tolerance trumped what was truth?
Yes, the state of our union is fragile at best. There’s constant division and brewing unrest. We need a revival of psyche and soul. May God bless our nation again!
