Is your heart burning for revival? Do you petition God day and night to send revival to your school, church, city, or ministry? Do you ever get frustrated when the revival you’ve prayed for seems slow in arriving?
Or, have you been plowing and plowing, serving faithfully, but you wonder sometimes where is the fruit of your labor?
If either of these situations describes you, then episode 9 of the FromHisPresence Podcast is a rhema word for you today!
I was studying yesterday morning in 2 Timothy when the Holy Spirit made a certain passage leap off the page into my heart. It spoke to me like crazy, and after I pondered it awhile, I HAD to record a word about it.
In this passage, the apostle Paul is sending Timothy an on-time, encouraging word… in a bit of a stealthy way. It’s almost like a secret code. You have to think about it to get it, and Paul even told Timothy he needed to think about it more and let the Lord reveal what he (Paul) was talking about.
Why would Paul write like that? I don’t know. Maybe someone else was reading the letter. Maybe someone else was scribing the letter; they probably were. Maybe Paul knew that his advice was only for certain ears. Maybe he knew the letter would be read out loud to other people in Timothy’s city of Ephesus.
For whatever reason, Paul wrote to Timothy in a cryptic way. But Paul knew what he was doing, because the Holy Spirit was speaking through him. And when you read what he’s saying as it was written–directly to address the specific need of Timothy’s heart–then the Holy Spirit will minister it to your heart too.
So today’s podcast is about revival, and about what God is doing when revival seems to be taking a long time to get here.
Please listen. You will be encouraged. I guarantee it.
