Painted Ourselves Into a Corner, did we?

A dear and loved friend posted the following on her Facebook page.

In three short months, just like He did with the plagues of Egypt, God has taken away everything we worship. God said, “you want to worship athletes, I will shut down the stadiums. You want to worship musicians, I will shut down Civic Centers. You want to worship actors, I will shut down theaters. You want to worship money, I will shut down the economy and collapse the stock market. You don’t want to go to church and worship Me, I will make it where you can’t go to church”
“If my people 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 will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
Maybe we don’t need a vaccine, Maybe we need to take this time of isolation from the distractions of the world and have a personal revival where we focus on the ONLY thing in the world that really matters. Jesus.

If you believe this copy and share. Start the revival in your home……Spread the Love of Jesus. ✝️

I get it.
Albeit, I’m not so sure we can accredit GOD with the shutting down of all the things we have come to worship – I think we painted ourselves into a corner and we didn’t know what else to do.
Heavens! We couldn’t ask Him, could we?!

I do think it is so apropos that what we as a People have come to worship we were willing to forego because we feared for our lives.

If only this would remind us that we are in a far graver peril than Covid-19 and have been since we knowingly committed our first sin.

My friend’s post suggested revival. I agree! The people of GOD need revival! Big time!
So who are the People of GOD, anyway?

We who have said, yes GOD I believe You, I can’t save myself. Thank You JESUS for giving me YOUR Righteousness in exchange for my sins.  And then somewhere along the way, we stopped being in AWE that He would do such a thing for depraved us!  It is WE who need revival! And until we do this:

2 Chronicles 7:14  (KJV) 14 If my people, which 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, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.  source

Do we really expect the people of the world to repent and say YES to the GOD they have not seen?!

Romans 2:4  (NLT) Don’t you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can’t you see that his kindness is intended to turn you from your sin?  source

Sickness and disease are NOT punishment FROM GOD; they are consequences of sin – sometimes ours, sometimes others and sometimes just because this world is not our Home.  Let REVIVAL begin!
