Requirements for True Revival

Scripture Readings: 2 Chronicles 6:34-42  

When God's people are disobedient, we suffer His wrath because we have rejected His way. God desires a restored relationship with His people, but we, as believers, still have a responsibility in our own revival. That responsibility, outlined in 2 Chronicles 7:14, calls for specific action:"If my people, who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray . . . " With these words, God reveals that revival is primarily focused on His people.

When believers come to God on His terms with humble hearts, we give God permission to take action. When we open the door for revival through prayer, God works on our sins and addresses how they affect our lives.

". . . and seek my face . . . " Seeking His face means seeking His presence, submitting to His authority, and approaching God on His terms.  

". . . and turn from their wicked ways . . . " With these words, God is calling for spiritual and physical action as prerequisites to His intervention.  We must rid ourselves of excuses and crutches, which are often disguised as addictions and issues.

Only when we seek God's will with humility, prayer and obedience will true revival occur.
