Day 121- Detroit, Michigan: Revival
Every now and again we need a “pick us up” kind of motivation that allows us to rise up from the pain that we are dealing with in our lives and reconnecting with God. Who or what do we turn to in those moments? Do we turn to an activity that we enjoy? Do we turn to our favorite Author, Pastor, or Speaker to give us our “daily cup of inspiration”, or do we turn back to God? We all have our individual intrinsic motivators, reasoning, and or rational behind why we gravitate towards the ultimate “power” source that fills us up.
When we go to church are we inspired to change a particular behavior? Do we need to be reminded by a tragic incident about how fragile life is? Are we in desperate need of a revival through Jesus Christ? The strength we need is within our soul and connecting with people that lead us closer to God is never a bad thing. In fact our life depends on it. The acquaintances that we make on a daily basis can have impacts on our outlook on our faith, family life, and personal/professional relationships. God is like our coach on the sideline cheering us on and correcting our mistakes when we need instruction most.
When God speaks we must listen and being around fellow believers is a great way to learn and grow. Debates about religion, God, Jesus, and the Bible are not bad, as long as they encourage thought provoking conversations or positive practices that further develop our relationship with God. Everything we do in a 24-hour day always leads us back to God. We have an opportunity to be uplifted at every turn of the bend on our journey. People that inspire us are blessing from God and we all have specific people in our lives that we value for advice, support, and love. Will our next revival occur at a religious concert, church service or mass, baptism, funeral, wedding, or some other function that makes us realize the importance of being born again in Jesus Christ.
