An Outpouring of Confession by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/15/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: In the 1930s, God sent a great revival in the Shantung province of China. Witnesses said that preachers couldn’t even finish their sermons because people were so convicted of sin that they would begin crying out in agony.

When’s the last time you saw that happen in your church? When’s the last time it happened in my church? When’s the last time I cried out for God’s mercy? We don’t usually have a deep enough awareness of our sin. That’s why we need revival.

When we see God as He really is, we begin to see ourselves as we really are. And with that conviction of sin, there’s an outpouring of heartfelt confession.

Would you ask God to revive your heart? Pray, “Lord, let me see how holy You are. And in light of Your holiness, show me those dark, hidden corners of my heart.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.
