Do you want it?

School has started, and everybody is busy with that, work, and other things. Busy, busy, busy! And while I am busy as well, I don't want to get so caught up being busy this winter that I forget about what God wants to do in our midst. I don't want to limit God to what He can do for me and my church. In the summer people go to camp meetings and youth camp and get fired up about Jesus, and then start to slack off when they get home and go back to school/work.

I want to challenge/encourage somebody: Keep your mind on Jesus in every season. Fall and winter seem to get a lot of people down in the dumps and busy because of the overcast weather and just the daily grind. But don't stop praying for revival. We are in desperate need of a great book of Acts revival in this day and time. I don't know what the journey will be like to get there but I can see the peaks of the mountains and I KNOW we are going there! We need to start praying for great revival: Out pouring of the Holy Ghost, healings, miracles, signs and wonders. Young people need to see the mighty works of God - it would get them excited and on fire. We just need to SEEK IT. There aren't enough people doing that.

What would happen if young people would start getting together and praying for that? What would we see? If you needed a miracle, wouldn't you want someone to pray for you? It's just been on my heart and I cannot get away from it. I don't want to get away from it because this is what I really want, more than anything. To be used of God and see great revival in young people. I have a burden for young people because God gave it to me and I know that they are the key to a great revival springing forth in our world today. God wants to use the young people.

When people hear "young person" or "teenager" today, they don't really think of it in a good way because the youth of America are crazy, wild, perverted, and rebellious - it is very evident. So when a young person is truly living for God with all their heart and separating themselves from the world, AND excited about the things of God and witnessing to others, the light shines so bright. It is because it is so opposite from the darkness that has a hold of the young people of this world. We can start a revival! We just have to want it and seek it!

Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. - Matthew 7:7-8

Do you want it?

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. -2Ch 7:14
Do we believe God's word or not?

I want it I want it! This truth is real! And there are sooo many young souls out there that are seeking something real something that will be permanent in their lives. At my school they have chapel, and I just cry inside my heart to see them raising their hands out to a God they want to serve and love but they just don't know the truth. The truth that we Pentecostal young people have. It definitely is true that we get fired up during the summer during camps and great preaching and great fellowship with like minded young people and as soon as we get busy with the to do list that we have we tend to forget about the wonderful blessings and touches God gave us during the summer. What would happen if God forgot about us? We need to seek and get connected to our churches so that we can reach those souls out there! Amen Bunnie!

Gloooraaaayy!!! Preach it girl! Seriously though. WE NEED REVIVAL. There are people out there, hungry and searching. Lord help us not to get fixated on the ones who reject this truth but open our eyes and be sensitive to those around us and those who cross our path that need you oh so desperately! Let's keep the fire burning so others can feel the heat. And may we " ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear" 1 Peter 3:15
Thank you Jen for another wonderful post. Love you!
