Well timed, Good Word.
Yesterday morning before dawn, I had done my Devotional Reading , and then I had a wee read in Woolsey's biography of Duncan Campbell and the Hebrides revival.
...and it just hit me, where had my hunger, thirst and fire for Revival gone?
and then God said to me...."worry about your personal revival FIRST"...."where's that first love? Two hour prayer sessions?...holiness? paying mind to the least of these?".....
among many other personal rejoinders and rebukes from the Throne.
Oh it was a terrible day, i was undone, because i LONG to see a Heaven sent Revival in Vernon, Richland and Crawford Counties in Wisconsin.
But The Father, The LORD of Hosts, was saying to me, "what have YOU done to that end?"
"Got prayer partners yet?"
"Living as holy as a saved sinner can live?"
"Worried about the non-essentials, while giving short shrift to the Essentials....like Waiting on Me, the Lord your God?"
It was a Terrible day....the only Hope i have is that Jesus will NOT let me go.....and how do i know this?
That i can still feel Holy Ghost CONVICTION!....and MOURN over such a state, a profitless state, and beg for the strength to "clean out the temple", beg for the endurance to seek, once again, personal revival....the Baptism of the Holy Ghost..
If i beg God to come down and saturate Vernon, Richland and Crawford Counties in Wisconsin with a True and Real Revival, sweeping many many dear souls into the Kingdom of God, i must have "clean hands" (Psalm 24)....or its all just humbug.
Laid low, chastened, humbled and broken, neil
