“He will … if we will”
The Revival Recipe By John Davis
2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people who are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then …will I hear from heaven, … will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
There are five stages in the famous Revival Recipe …
It begins with-
If my people … God always looks to His people … He flows through His People … He never depends on the world or negotiates with the devil … He always respond to the cries of His own … He didn’t say … if the world … of if the devil … or if the politicians … but if my people.
Shall humble themselves … Humility is the attitude that gains entrance into God’s presence … He resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble (James 4:6) … Except ye become as a child (Matthew 18:3). Humility is not thinking bad about yourself … it’s not thinking about yourself. We must decrease and He must increase.
And Pray … God does nothing but in answer to prayer … He said my house shall be called a house of prayer … not a house of singing … preaching … but prayer. Jesus began His ministry praying … and now He intercedes for us at the right hand of God. He is our example and shows us the awesome power of prayer.
And seek my face … not my hand … buy my face. There is a dimension of prayer that moves from asking to seeking. The Bible says … He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him (Hebrews 11:6).
And turn from their wicked ways … Not just our sins … but our ways (Isaiah 55:8). His ways are higher than our ways … the way we think, act and live can hinder the flow of revival.
We, as God’s people must surrender over all to Him … and then … God says … I will hear … I will forgive … I will heal.
“He will … If we will.”
