Psalm 85 (3:17)

by Jason Silver (played 16 times)

 

Ah, revival. There have been moments in history where entire cultures came back to God at once. During John and Charles Wesley's era, for example, or via revivalists like Charles Finney. Even recently, we saw Billy Graham awaken the hearts of people all over the world.

It's like a pendulum swing as culture turns their back on God, then returns to him. The ancient Israelites are a great example of this back and forth, back and forth.

Now we find ourselves in this situation. Churches all over the country have closed their doors, and those which remain open are dismally empty.

"Will you be angry with us forever?" This question resonates with me. What will be the impact of our culture's decision to turn from God? When will he put away his indignation, and when will he bring revival back to our land?

The 'fear' of God, the respect and awe which causes a person to approach Him with humilty and reverence, well this is something sadly missing today.

Let's join together, let's turn our hearts back to God! When we do, we'll see peace come upon our land! We'll see our land become prosperous and good!

Let's unite in purpose! Let's become the church again! Not full of judgement, anger, selfishness, seeking after wealth, but instead seeking first his kingdom. Then the Lord will give what is good and the land will yeild its increase.

Amen?

Lyrics

Lord, you were favourable to your land;
You restored the fortunes of Jacob;
Forgave iniquity of your people;
And you pardoned all their sin.

Selah (rest, and think about that)

You withdrew all your wrath;
And you turned from your hot anger.
Please restore us again, O God of our salvation,
And put away your indignation towards us.

Will you be angry with us forever?
Will you prolong your anger to all generations?
Will you revive us so we'll rejoice in you?
Show us your steadfast love,
And grant us your salvation.

Let me hear what God will say,
He will speak peace to his people,
To his faithful, to those who,
Those who turn their hearts to him.
And surely his salvation comes to those who fear him.

His steadfast love and faithfulness meet;
His righteousness and peace will kiss each other truly.
His faithfulness will spring up from the ground,
And His own righteousness will look down from the sky.

The Lord will give what is good,
And our land will yield its increase.
And righteousness will make a path for his steps.
