Revive Us Again, Lord!
Come one, come all! We have witnessed God do the impossible! We have experienced lives changed during and after our past revival worship services. We have witnessed many delivered, empowered, and healed. My prayer is Acts 2:2; “And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.” We are the beloved children of God who desire to hear from our Heavenly Father in a profound way as we anticipate His glorious presence. Come freely and boldly! I believe God is going to stir our hearts and establish us in new commitments. Revelations will come; however, I am confident the preached Word will confirm God’s truth in our hearts. Glory! Beloved, I have listened to the cries and concerns of many regarding how they’ve experienced a rough year, ‘BUT’ God! I’ve listened to those who are challenged in their personal walk with the Lord, in their marriages, jobs, and schooling, those mentally exhausted, tired from the busyness of life, hurt, and abandoned. I have listened with compassion to singles wanting to hear from the Lord and seniors that do not want to be discarded. We have prayed countless prayers for those at the doorstep of death, ‘BUT’ God! Caregivers and families seeking assistance, so YES, I believe this revival is not just needed, it’s vital. Revive Us Again, Lord! We need a revival that will rekindle the old fires, the “first love,” we had at conversion. Beloved, we must face up to spiritual realities. Like before, 2 Corinthians 13:5 comes to mind in that we; “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates”. Amen. Revival is HERE! Thus I encourage each of us to walk out Hebrews 10:25 (AMP); “not forsaking our meeting together [as believers for worship and instruction], as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more [faithfully] as you see the day [of Christ’s return] approaching”. I spent time with the Lord, and the time is NOW. Glory! 1 Thessalonians 5:19, “Quench not the Spirit.” I remember a Pastor share; “There are basically two ways to quench God’s Spirit: 1) We can deliberately rebel and say, in effect, “God, I do not want what you have to offer. I am going to do things my way; or, 2) We can allow God’s Spirit to dwindle and “starve” to death by lack of renewal or replenishment”. Moreover, I believe our ‘REACH’ with the kingdom agenda will strengthen, along with our impact beyond our surrounding communities. Praise His Holy Name! Set your clocks, clear your calendar and have an open heart to want to be revived by the Lord. Willow is extending an open invitation to participate at the anointed time beginning with our Sunday, October 20th 9:30 AM worship and ending Sunday, October 27th. Each weekday our revival services will begin at 7:00 PM. Invite your friends, family, the unsaved, the backslider, your co-workers, and neighbors!! We are expecting great and mighty things to happen- Souls to be delivered, lives to be changed, bodies to be healed, broken things to be restored, and miracles to take place! Come and get YOUR blessing! God bless, Pastor Lloyd
