Can we talk about the nail Brent Phillips-Encounter Houston
Is there something in your life that might be holding you back from God's blessings for you? We may not recognize it or we may just refuse to admit it. We need to be honest enough with ourselves to ask the hard questions and act upon the answers.
2 Chronicles 7:14 "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."
We need healing from the Lord. Healing is restoring something back to its proper condition. Revival is the same thing. When we seek revival we are seeking healing from God. But this healing will only come when we turn from our wicked ways. We must be willing to change our lifestyle.
James 1:23-24 "For if you listen to the word and do not obey is, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror; you see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like."
When you look in the mirror and see something that needs to be changed you cannot just walk away and do nothing. When you make excuses why you can't change you empower yourself to stay in slavery to complacency.
1 Thessalonians 5:17-21 "Pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do not quench the Spirit. Do not despise prophecies, but test everything; hold fast what is good."
To hear truth and not act upon it is a complete waste of time. If a coach was telling you how to run better would you listen and change the way you run? If you don't make the changes, you will stay where you are and never improve. God tells you what to do. What will you do about it?
