Are you ready to be revived?

Disappointment comes in many different styles, shapes and sizes. It could be a relationship, a career choice, job promotion, Church, ministry, friends, home etc. etc. Some disappointments are because of our own choices, others because of other people’s choices, which we have no control over.
The definition of disappointment is: sadness or displeasure caused by the non-fulfilment of one’s expectations. Or, feeling sad, unhappy, or displeased because something was not as good as expected or because something you hoped for or expected did not happen.

Many get stuck and don’t get out of the tunnel of disappointment, so they can’t even see the sun that comes after it. God does not want us to stay in that tunnel of confusion and sadness. He wants us to move forward, to go to Him and let Him show us the light. When the women found the tomb empty, the angel said to them: “Why are you looking for the living among the dead? He is not here, he is going before you to Galilee, there you will see him as he told you.”
Have you been hit by the strong winds of life that has stalled much of your spiritual growth? Have you by circumstance or personal choice let the forces around you deaden your heart towards the things of God? Are you letting the things that are socially acceptable yet against biblical truth bend you to their forces? Our God is a god of renewal and revival. He is the “sun” for our spirit that allows us to grow once again despite the storms of life. We can experience revival in our lives when we cry out for His “sun and water” to begin that new growth. Are you ready to begin new growth? Are you ready to be revived? Let the Savior clean out all the dead leaves and branches of disappointment in your life and be revived to really live again, in Him!!!
