What does revival look like?

Will You not revive us again, That Your people may rejoice in You? (Psalms 85:6)

In the previous part of our consideration on biblical revival we saw that the almighty God, through His Holy Spirit, calls us to revival in a number of situations which include forsaking Jesus as our first love, as well as lack of zeal, joy and fervency in serving the Lord. Revival should also be sought when the cares and worries of life leaves a believer emotionally, physically, and spiritually exhausted; same is required whenever worldliness and compromise become rife in the life of an individual believer or church. Today we ask: what does revival look like?

The main evidence of revival, which entails the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon believers, is positively changed lives. Some characteristics and evidence of revival are the following:

  • It is always borne out of prayer and linked to God’s word.

  • There will be a new sense of love towards God and others. Revival always leads to salvation of souls who turn around from loving sin to loving God; when believers are revived, their commitment to God and Christian service are deepened.

  • When believers are revived, their commitment to God and Christian service is deepened.

  • Satan's kingdom suffers. Revived souls are empowered to manifest the gifts of the Holy Spirit, including the power to cast out evil spirits and deliver people from the hold of Satan (Matt 10:7-11).

Let us pray unto our God to revive and strengthen us as individuals and as a church. Then we can become agents of positive changes in our communities.
