We Don’t Care What It Looks Like
When God has moved in awakening and revival historically, it was pretty messy. It was pretty noisy. It sure didn’t look like what religious minds had in mind. It was the same when Jesus showed up on the earth and started walking around performing miracles and showing us God. He didn’t fit in the Temple box back then and He doesn’t fit in the Church box now. We need to let Him be GOD if we really, really want Him!
“They questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, we know that You speak and teach correctly, and You are not partial to any, but teach the way of God in truth.” (In other words, teach the way of God the way we understand it to be.) (Luke 20:21; NASB)
Give Him 15 minutes in prayer:
Ask God if you have a “box” you like Him to fit in. Repent.
Invite Him to show up in and through your life and this nation any way He wants to show up!
Read Luke 4:18-30. Ponder it a while and pray into it. Pray verses 18-19 over your life when you are ready.
A prayer you can pray:
“God, we take off our ‘boxes’. We say, ‘You can do whatever You want! Just come, Almighty God. Wake us up! We don’t want You boxed in! Come and have your way in this nation. Awaken this lost, deceived, hurting generation. Whatever it looks like, whatever it sounds like, come Holy Spirit, awaken a nation! Come, Almighty God! Awaken!’” (Hannah Sheets)
The Lord will come any way He wants to awaken this nation…and we welcome Him any way He shows up!
