• “There are those who insist that it is a very bad thing to question God. To them, ‘why?’ is a rude question. That depends, I believe, on whether it is an honest search, in faith, for His meaning, or whether it is the challenge of unbelief and rebellion.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Rend the Heavens by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 06/15/11

Rend the Heavens

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Some friends once told me how many churches were in their area. In fact, in their state, one particular denomination had 14,000 churches.

But the crime rate was going up. And the area was plagued with social problems. How could that be, with a church on every corner? Could it be because there is so little sense of God’s presence in many of our churches?

The prophet Isaiah realized that his nation desperately needed revival, so he pleaded with God to visit His people. In Isaiah 64 he says, “Oh, that You would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That the mountains might shake at Your presence” (v. 1). Oh, that God would do that in our day.

Pray with me. “Lord, please rend the heavens and come down. May mountains of pride and sin tremble at Your presence. Come and visit Your church, O Lord. Do it for Your glory, amen.”

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Verse of the Day

For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. — Ephesians 6:12-13 (NKJV)
