Its time for an awakening again, America.


This song is a call for us to wake up. It is God calling the church, which is us as individuals for a revival in our hearts, and our lives...its time to awake from our slumber, but it first must begin with us in our hearts. Every time this song is played at our church there is such power behind it with a move of the Spirit. If you have not heard this song yet, ya should!!

Awakening by Hill Song...

In our hearts Lord
In this nation
Awakening
Holy Spirit,
We desire awakening.

[Chorus]
For You and You alone
Awake my soul
Awake my soul and sing
For the world You love
Your will be done
Let Your will be done in me.
--
In Your presence
In Your power
Awakening

For this moment
For this hour
Awakening

[Bridge]
Like the rising sun that shines
From the darkness comes light
I hear Your voice say...
This is my awakening

Like the rising sun that shines
Awake my soul
Awake my soul and sing.

Only You can raise a life Awake my soul
Awake my soul and sing.

Sure don't want to go through the motions again and call it highest praise- fill our hearts, fill our soul, fill us each n everyday- send your Holy Fire down and burn the dross from our hearts.

Be my life.
Be my breath.
Be my everything.

I don't want to take another step without you. Cause I have found You are all I want. You are all I need. Everything my heart could hope for. Awake my soul, O Lord, cause there is so much more!!

"Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone; the day is at hand. So then let us cast off works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desire."      Romans 13:11-14 ESV

Bet your wondering how to put on the Lord Jesus everyday?
All that is saying simple is to die out to yourself and your desires and let God have His way in our life.

The greatest virtue is Love.


"And now abideth faith, hope and love, these three; and the greatest of these is love." 1 Corinthians 13:13

How is love greater than faith and hope?

First of all it is nobler, higher, and greater because it is with distinction; with some mark of preference.

It is the virtue of the great trio.

Faith appropriates something for myself; is suitable or fitting for a particular purpose, person, occasion, etc.

Hope anticipates something for myself. But. Love sends me out of myself with gracious concern for others!

Love ever gives, forgives and out lives. Love stands with open hands.

For love gives, it lives and while love lives it gives. Yes, this is a prerogative,to give, give, give love.

Prerogative means an exclusive or special right, power, or privilege.

Love of God


"Behold My servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth;" Isaiah 42:1a,

Love is God's supreme manifestation of Himself to mankind in His incarnate Son.

Love was the motive, Love was the predominant feature of that incomparable life and ministry on earth.

Love was the wonderful, masterful compassion of that tragic, yet wonderful Cross. How can Love be anything less than supreme?

"The complete most beautiful definition picture, story, idea of love, the most purest, most glorious, use of the word love is found here...the Father loveth the Son. John 3:35

The most glorious representation of love is the Father loveth the Son.

The Son is the object of the Father. Before there was anything. God the Father, God the Son n God the Holy Ghost existed in a world of Love.

If God is love, He is the object of His own love. Who can add to Him. No one!.

He needs nothing external to have more perfect love. Love defined God, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

For He is all that He is.. in comprehensible happy and complete in God without anything.

He needth nothing from no body. He creates for His own pleasure. Revelation 4:11 We are saved to enjoy what He enjoys, above all things..Him"

Proof of Your love


"Wherefore shew you to them, and before the churches, the proof of Your Love...."
2 Corinthians 8:24

"Everyday we see some new thing in Christ. His love is neither broken or brim nor bottom. This soul of ours hath love, and cannot but love some fair one; and oh, what a fair One, what an only One, what an excellent, lovely, ravishing One is Jesus."  Samuel Rutherford


"O blessed Jesus, Thy love is wonderful. The experiential, sense of it here on earth sweetens the bitterness of Life and disarms death of all its terrors. Thou art the full ocean of never failing delight and satisfaction. When I am favored with the sense of Thy love, my soul is filled and satisfied."
John Fawcett - from a little book called Christ Precious

Let my life be the proof of Your love, the proof of Your love. Let my life look like You & what Your made of. How You lived and died, love is sacrificed...So let my life be the proof, the proof of Your Love.
Chorus taken from King and Country- Proof of Your Love- a relatively new Christian duo, who are as real as what they sing.

How many, or how few of us, I wonder love and possess our Lord in this way?

How deep is you love for Him?


"And now , Isreal, what doeth the Lord thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lord thy God, to walk in all His ways, and to love Him, and to serve the Lord thy God with all thy heart and thy soul." Deuteronomy 10:12

Too Love our Lord reverently does not mean that I must love Him solemnly, or "religiously."

On the contrary, He wants me (you) to Love Him in just the way our heart loves.

He wants all the eager, spontaneous, affectionate, response to Him of which our heart is capable of.

The more we love Him, naturally, hungrily, eagerly, reverently, devotedly, practically, the more this love purifies the heart and refines the mind and will increase our capacity to love Him more. 

This also increases our capacity to enjoy His love towards us.

He is still the One in whom are hid the imperishable treasures for which the human heart fundamentally craves.

How many of us seek Him until wee find Him as if heaven itself just came down into our hearts?


No Gem in earth or sea could ever be as dear as He.

"And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God who created all things by Jesus Christ." Ephesians 3:9

Do you limit God?


"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." Ecclesiastes 12: 13


Man’s basic spiritual problem is the integrity and accuracy of God’s Word.

Most people today do not even read the Bible, but put everything else before God.

This is modern-day idolatry.

This is quite a problem.
How can man take action on something he isn’t even aware of?

This is the state that the world is in today and it is getting worse and worse and worse.

We have been promised many great things by God Almighty if we adhere to and obey His Word.

Whereby [by which] are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption [getting worse, and worse, and worse] that is in the world through lust [over-desire].  2 Peter 1: 4 Amplified

Because the world is getting worse and worse and worse, that should not affect our life with God, especially if we are applying the Word in our lives.

We limit God greatly in our life by our lack of believing.

On the unbelieveing side, you have doubt, worry, fear.

But


One must believe, when you do you have confidence, trust, and faith.

Are you studying and applying God’s Word every day?

You have everything to gain by studying and applying God’s Word and nothing to lose. God’s Word is our blueprint for living.

Keeping the commandments of God is the complete duty of man.

Man has no other true alternative but to adhere and become addicted to God’s Word which is God’s Will. That is our blueprint for living.

When we do this, we can believe in a positive manner and therefore act in a positive manner.

If we speak God’s Word, God can plant seeds and He can move.

If we are afraid to speak His Word, we limit God.

Here is the kicker.

The only thing that will remove fear from a man or woman’s life is God’s Word.

Every born-again believer has faith in Christ.
Our faith increases the more and more you study God’s Word.

"So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." Romans 10: 17

You can't get faith by watching the evening news or reading Newsweek or Reader’s Digest, or whatever else you read besides the Bible.

You will get it by reading one thing – The Word of God.

Do you put God First?


The Word of God is the center of reference for all learning, nothing but the Word!

"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."  2Timothy 2: 15
