Turn Back Before the Trouble Comes!

For a long time, the people of Israel did not worship the true God or listen to priests who could teach them about God. They refused to obey God's Law.   But whenever trouble came, Israel turned back to the Lord their God and worshiped him.

There was so much confusion in those days that it wasn't safe to go anywhere in Israel.

2 Chronicles 15:3-5

When you pray for revival are you really praying for trouble to come your way? When "all is well" with our lives we are tempted to forget about God, but when things go bad, even the most ungodly of us often cry out "Oh God!" Calling on God in time of crisis is almost a "knee jerk" reaction. We do it without even thinking. But calling on God in times of peace and plenty is a deliberate action of faith.

So as the "good times roll" focus your heart on God and call out to Him as if the world were about to come to an end! And you should do that because even as things are all at peace, your world may indeed be at the brink of destruction. God is not a catastrophic insurance policy there for the purpose of keeping you out of Hell. Calling out to God when circumstances couldn't be better is the wisest thing any man can do.

When desperate times come you should always turn to God first, but you will be especially blessed if you can turn to Him as a Friend who has always been there!

"Lord Jesus, help me to turn my heart to You today as if the world were about to come to an end! So that when it does, I will already be clinging tightly to You! And may You, Jesus be praised forever. Amen."
