ISAIAH 57

Key Verse: Isaiah 57:15 “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

What is revival?

Revival is a time when you are brought back to a level of zeal, joy, interest and enthusiasm in God and His Word and in serving and worshiping Him in your utmost best. Many times, we pray for revival in the church that hearts shall be drawn closer to God and lives changed but do you know that revival begins with you and me! 

1.  God Revives You When You Are Holy

V15 “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place,…”

Sometimes we wonder why we are not as zealous and enthusiastic as we used to be. We feel like God is very far from our hearts. We feel like we are not growing and we are stagnant. My friends, pray for holiness in you. God is Holy and the only way you can be revived is when you are holy or without sins. In other words, repent your sins and wrong doings, and pray, read God’s Words and worship God in the beauty of His holiness.
 
2.  God Revives You When You are Humble

V15 “For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones.”

We can never have revival when we only think of ourselves, our career, our possessions, our family and our future. We are proud when we are self-centered. God can only revive and give us grace when we humble ourselves and are God-centered and think of others, and do what He commands us.

James 4:6 “But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.”

3.  God Revives You When You Are Healed

V19 “I create the fruit of the lips; Peace, peace to him that is far off, and to him that is near, saith the LORD; and I will heal him.”

As you repent of your sins and humble yourself before God, He shall give you perfect peace, heal your sins and revive you.

Action of the Week

Set aside a daily time of prayers and reflection upon God’s Word to stay holy, humble and healed.
