God Called Moses (Exodus 3: 1-7)
“And the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. So he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed. Then Moses said, ‘I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.’ So when the LORD saw that he turned aside to look, God called to him from the midst of the bush and said, “Moses, Moses!” and he said, “Here I am” (Verses 2-4).
A good point to start from on revival prayer is recalling the definitions of revival according to various authors. These would give us an idea of what to expect when we talk about revival.
Spending some days praying on these definitions will encourage us in our quest for revival. The prayer for revival should first be personal, then for the Church, and then for the nation. Revival first starts with the individual.
Arthur Wallis, in his classic book, “Rain from Heaven,” defines revival this way: “Revival then is such display of God’s holiness and power that often human personalities are overshadowed and human programme abandoned. It is God breaking into the consciousness of men, in majesty and glory.”
As we can find our text today, God chose to reveal Himself, first to Moses, before revealing Himself to the nation of Israel. At times, men see God through our lives.
Seek to experience the revelation of God, and then you will know what revival is.
Pray that God will reveal Himself to you in a new dimension, the way He did to Moses in the burning bush; just as Moses was wandering in the wilderness and God suddenly appeared to him. Pray also that God will reveal Himself to men who are lost all over the world.
