Revive Us, Oh, Lord….

Sister Kim has posted a needful heart cry for God’s people –

“Oh, Lord, this world that you have created is in trouble. The people you have created have turned from you and walked away from your face. We have committed every type of sin the imagination can come up with. The stink of our sins no doubt have risen as high as heaven and must assail you day and night. We no longer call good things good, but we call evil things good and good things evil. We have forsaken our position as caretakers of your creation and brought destruction upon everything that we touch. We no longer feel a need to keep your laws and are working diligently to erase any evidence of your ever having had a part in making the laws that mankind was to live by.”

It is this manner of answering of Joel’s call to prepare for the hearts what’s coming . . . who knows, perhaps the Lord will be gracious . . .

 Joel 2:12  Therefore also now, saith the LORD, turn ye even to Me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:  13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the LORD your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.  14 Who knoweth if He will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind Him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto the LORD your God?  15 Blow the trumpet in Zion, sanctify a fast, call a solemn assembly:  16 Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet.  17 Let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep between the porch and the altar, and let them say, Spare Thy people, O LORD, and give not Thine heritage to reproach, that the heathen should rule over them: wherefore should they say among the people, Where is their God?

Please take time to pray for Kim’s son and family as they are being “purified, and made white” in God’s watchful care and loving wisdom.
