Break up the fallow ground

Today is Sunday and the sermon this morning came from the book of Hosea. Our Pastor is burdened for revival to come to our church. I pray that it begins with me. We now see a "famine" in our land. It is a spiritual famine which is much more difficult to deal with than a physical famine. We are a blessed country and however wonderful that is, it has its pitfalls. Some of the signs of that famine include: a lack of faithfulness, a high tolerance for sin, a love for entertainment above a passion for God and a numbness that keeps the altars empty.History has shown us that God has to send a revival every 3rd generation or so because our human tendency is to forget Him and to become so self-reliant that we don't recognize our need of HIm. This past week I had to listen to a grandmother pour her heart out to me over a situation in her family that only God would be able to change. It was so heartbreaking that she and I just cried together and poured our hearts out to God for mercy .
How can people live without His grace in their miserable lives? Dear friend, ask God to start a revival in your heart and to break up the fallow ground that typifies our churches today.
