O Lord, revive thy work in the midst of the years.
Habakkuk 3:2 KJV
How do we achieve (spiritual) renewal?
First, there must be prayer – the kind that springs from a deep-seated heart-yearning for revival. We do not need pious platitudes and religious mouthing – but earnest, fervent prayer.
Second, we Christians must forsake our sins, both individually and corporately. We must forsake our pettiness, our peevishness (easily irritated, especially by unimportant things), our littleness, and our conflicts – as well as our evil ways.
Third, God must become real to us. Let the Bible’s truth soak deeply into your heart and mind every day.
