The fight wears us out! The ongoing spiritual warfare we face can be downright exhausting. We are in need of revival…
Sister, take some time to get revived so that you can continue to endure the fight ahead! In the Lord, we become prepared to press on. In His strength, we can stand armored up against the fiery darts of the enemy. In Christ alone, we are revived! We must engage in warfare from a well-rested place.
This month’s “From Worn to Well” podcast focuses on becoming revived, you can check it out here: We Need A Revival! While my podcast partner had to be away this month, the message still had to go forth!
A.C.T now to get revived and get back in the fight, victory awaits!
Having a rough day? Needing a reminder? How about clinging to this powerful Word?
When the enemy tries to tell you otherwise, whisper: “Lord, You are good and you do good…”
When you are reminded of past trauma, whisper: “Lord, You are good and you do good.”
When you receive disappointing news, cry out: “Lord, You are good and you do good.”
When that door closes, write: “Lord, You are good and you do good.”
When the one you thought you were going to spend the rest of your life with, shout: “Lord, You are good and you do good.”
As you start to repeat that simple line, Heaven will respond, Angels will be dispatch, and the Lord will smell your sweet fragrant of praise. As you declare that power over your life, you will see the good that you are declaring. As you shower that scripture, your strength is renewed!
There is power in repeating the truth of God’s Word! It’s not about shouting it on street corners, it’s about whispering it with tear-filled eyes. It’s about speaking it when you aren’t seeing good. It’s about crying out about the Lord’s goodness when you are discouraged and distracted.
Find yourselves declaring: “Lord, You are good and you do good.”
When you work in a specific field for many years, you may find yourself in need of a boost or a change. For some, it may be all about attending a training or conference to learn new ways to do your job. Others may need a change in job location or a whole new career.
In one way or other, you may recognize the need for revival! The concept of reviving is all about bringing something back to life. It’s all about pumping life into a thing. It’s about reviving something that may be dying or is dead.
Marriages need a revival. Friendships need a revival. Careers need a revival. You need a revival! The Word of God has been sent forth to do many things and reviving our soul is one of those beautiful things:
Listen friends, this world and its woes are draining. Trying to carry the weight of the world on our shoulders is draining. Trying to stay on the right path is exhausting. You must revive yourself! You must refill. You must take some time to go before the Lord.
It’s time for a revival! Fast, pray, sing, dance-exchange that weariness for singing, exchange that sorrow for joy, exchange that sighing for praising. Revive your soul with the Word. Revive your mind with seeking out the Kingdom. Revive your life with a deeper relationship the Lord.
Joy awaits at the end of revival. Witty ideas, strategies and inventions awaits you on the other side of revival. Renewed focus is waiting for you as you revive yourself. Strength, gladness, and abundant life can be seen and experienced as we revive ourselves.
Establish revival for yourself by sitting at the feet of Jesus!
Are you existing or are you living? We may have heard that one before or maybe we have even said it to someone. Folks may call it a cliche, but it doesn’t change the validity of the question.
We are all existing-if you are breathing and functioning, your existence cannot be denied. However, what may be questionable is if one is living. Are you taking the time to smell the flowers? Are you laughing more than you crying? Are you taking the time to enjoy the present?
Existing versus living. Which one are you? We can be thankful that life is available to all of us! There may be areas of our life that is dead and others that may be living. Think about your professional life-are you just going to work or working towards a career? Think about your prayer life-is it based on religion or relationship?
All of our lives, if we look closer enough, have some dry areas. Let’s look to the Word:
Can your dry areas be revive? Are you committed to existing or living? Scream to those dry bones to live! Lean on the Word of God, that Living Water, to refresh those dry areas. Revive your career. Revive your prayer life. Live! It is time to truly live out life in abundance!
Living is more than being attentive to numbers on a scale or numbers associated with a bank account. Can these dry bones live? Yes, they can! We are children of God-who specializes in the impossible!
Your marriage can live! Your career can live! Your ministry can live! You can live! No matter what you’ve been through, live out life, woman of God!
Use the power of God through Jesus Christ to breath life into those dead areas. Watch Him resurrect that which everyone else called dead!
“the action of returning something to a former owner, place, or condition.”
Renewal. Revival. Reestablishment.
We here at Sisters Helping Sisters don’t know what you’ve lost, what led you astray from that calling, mission, goal, or purpose. But what we do know is that restoration is in God’s plan for your life, for your relationships, for your ministry. Restoration. Renewal. Revival. can all define you and shape you on this last day of 2019 and for the coming year, God’s willing.
It is our prayer that God restores what you’ve lost. It is our prayer that He gently reminds you and revives you to be all that He’s called you to be. As you begin to wonder what’s in store for 2020, may He reestablish and enlarge your territory. May He blow your mind beyond measure, starting today and right now! May He restore your belief in His promises and His Word. May He restore your faith in His ability to work a miracle in your life.
And may this truth manifest for you:
“I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten, the hopper, the destroyer, and the cutter, my great army, which I sent among you. “You shall eat in plenty and be satisfied, and praise the name of theLordyour God, who has dealt wondrously with you. And my people shall never again be put to shame.” Joel 2:25-26
