I rejoice at your word like one who finds great spoil. --Psalm 119:162
I love the picture the Scripture gives us of the revival that broke out when Nehemiah and Ezra gathered God’s people to celebrate the completion of
Isn’t that great?! In verse 1 of this story, we’re told that the people asked Ezra to bring the Law and read from it! There was a famine in the land for the Word of God, and a deep hunger in their hearts to hear from Him.
Can the same thing be said of you today? Do have you have a passion and a hunger that cannot be satisfied by anything but Him? If we ever want to see true revival break out in our country, it must begin with personal revival in each of our lives.
Perhaps today you’d admit that you hunger for other things besides the Lord. Perhaps you’ve let other things get in the way of your relationship with Him.
If so, pray today that God will give you a passion for Him and His Word…and that you won’t be satisfied with anything less than Him!
