God wants to redeem that which the enemy has tried to steal from us. He wants to make the church strong and vibrant again. We His people need to –
1) Return to knowing God and His ways rather than just knowing about God.
2) Learn to contend for the faith again. We’ve lost the witness that convicts others and strongly testifies that God is still God and He is very real. We’ve lost the witness that demonstrates God is a personal God in a very impersonal world. The witness that says “What I do proves God exists, so watch me.”
3) Return to the love of God’s word, and the belief that it is infallible, and inerrant. We need a new revelation that God’s power is unlimited, His knowledge is unending, His presence is with us always, and He never changes.
4) Declare sacred and solemn assemblies of repentance and corporate fastings in many parts of this nation and beyond. A time set aside for rending our hearts before God.
