Day 34 Raise Up a Remnant
“And the remnant shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward.” 2 Kings 19:30
“At critical junctures in history, God raises up a remnant to reestablish His reign and rule. It’s rarely a majority. In fact, it’s almost always a small minority. But all it takes is a faithful few to begin a reformation. says Mark Batterson in Draw the Circle.
“Reformations are birthed out of rediscovering something ancient, something simple, something true. Every generation needs a reformation. Every generation needs to tear down its idols and rebuild its temples. Every generation needs to repent of its sin and rediscover the ancient truths.
“If my people (2 Chronicles 7:14), who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
If we circle the promises of God, God will deliver on them. It’s not a question of if; it’s only a question of when. But if we are determined to pray as long as it takes (see post Day 17 Do Not Delay), revival will come. It’s as predictable as the sun rising in the east. It’s as inevitable as the sun setting in the west.
“We will bear fruit above! Heaven will be populated because of our prayers. But the root of revival is prayer. We’ve got to press into the presence of God as never before. We must covenant to seek (2 Chronicles 15:12) God with all our heart and soul.
“We never know how or when or where a move of God might begin. But if we hit our knees, God will extend His mighty right hand on our behalf. If we lay a foundation of prayer, God will build something spectacular on top of it. If we intercede like never before, God will intervene like never before.”
When the prayer meeting becomes the most important meeting, revival is around the corner. -Mark Batterson
