"So that the priests could not stand to minister byreason of the cloud; for the glory of the LORDhad filled the house of God"(2 Chronicles 5:14)
Our church has been in revival since Sunday morning. We have had 5 of the most powerful services that I have ever experienced. The fire of the Holy Spirit has fallen in our midst like never before. The move of the Spirit has been so strong and the anointing of the Lord has just been flowing like a mighty river.
Lives have been changed. Decisions have been made. Peoples hearts have been moved to action. Souls have been saved.
The revival has been held in our church sanctuary, but the people that filled up our pews have been from many different churches and several different denominations. We have come together as one body. The body of Christ.
Hungry for the fire to fall upon us and ignite us with a real and mighty move of God. Desperate for the Word of God to leap off the pages of the holy scriptures and bury itself deep into our hearts. Longing for a real change to take place in our lives. Yearning for a deeper thirst for the living water.
The glory of the Lord has filled the House. We have encountered the consuming fire of God. God has been speaking loudly from the lips of His anointed servant. Speaking truth. Speaking love.
Our services were to end tonight, but the move of the Spirit has been so amazing and the outpouring so strong, that no one wanted it to end. The revival pastor and the worship group said they would stay. We will be having two more services and will conclude on Friday night unless the Lord deems otherwise.
There is nothing I would rather do than worship my Lord. There is no place I would rather be than the House of God.
I am thankful that God is still moving upon His people. I am thankful that for such a time as this, He is doing a mighty work in our midst. I am thankful for the amazing grace that is my salvation.
Consume us, Lord, with the fires of revival.
