My Heart Cry for Revival.

Good morning, dear congregation. Today, as we gather in fellowship and unity, I stand here with a message that resonates within the very core of our spirits—a message of hope, a call to action, and an invitation to a profound transformation.


Our crucial scripture comes from the book of Joel, chapter 2, verse 28:

"And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions."


Friends, this promise from God through the prophet Joel is a testament to God's boundless love and infinite power for His people. It speaks of a time of renewal, where the outpouring of the Spirit bridges the gap between the heavens and the earth, between the divine and the mortal.


A Promise for All

The beauty of this promise is that it is inclusive; it leaves no one behind. It's not just for the learned, not just for the elders, not just for the leaders—but for all people. This assures us that whether we are young or old, God has a plan for us. You may be sitting in this room today, thinking that your time has passed, or perhaps you're at a stage where your dreams seem distant. But our Heavenly Father says, "I will pour out my Spirit," your old men will dream again, and your young men will be visionaries. The Lord ignites the spark of hope within you, regardless of which season of life you find yourself in.


The Thirst for Revival

Why does my heart cry out for revival? It's because we live in an era that thirsts for authenticity, for a meaningful connection with God that transcends tradition and ritual. Routine has dulled our spiritual senses, and the busyness of life clamors louder than our quiet moments with the Lord. Our generation has both the greatest challenges and the greatest opportunities. We stand at the intersection of what is and what could be.


Revival starts within each one of us. That gentle yet powerful stirring in your soul tells you there is more. It moves us from complacency into action, indifference into compassion, and isolation into a community. Joel prophesies about this outpouring of the Spirit, which is the catalyst for such a revival.


The Role of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Comforter, Teacher, and Guide. When we welcome the Holy Spirit into our hearts and allow Him to move within our lives, extraordinary things happen. The Holy Spirit transcends barriers—we begin to prophesy, which is to say, we speak forth God's mind and counsel. In doing so, we align ourselves with divine wisdom, foster discernment, and speak life into situations that seem insurmountable.


The Dreams and Visions

Dreams and visions are God's language to reveal His plans to His children. They are not simply nighttime narratives or fleeting daydreams, but vessels of truth that can shape our destiny if we are attentive to them. This requires us to believe that God speaks, that His promises are accurate, and that He will act powerfully in our lives and those around us.


The Call to Action

Beloved, our response to God's promise should be eager expectation and proactive faith. Seal this promise into your heart—dare to dream again and envision a life so intertwined with God's purposes that your very existence becomes a testament to His grace and power. Get on your knees in prayer, seek His face earnestly, and prepare for the outpouring.


Indeed, I echo our heart's cry for personal and collective revival, a spiritual awakening that will flood our homes, communities, and world with His glory. Remember, the Spirit God promises is His very own.
