Revival: God In Our Midst

And He said, "My Presence will go with you, and I will give you
rest."
Then he said to Him, "If Your Presence does not go with us, do not
bring us up from here."
-Exodus 33:14-15

In what I have to say I may not be joined by any ground swell of
public opinion, but I have a charge to make against the church. We
are not consciously aware of God in our midst . We do not seem to
sense the tragedy of having almost completely lost the awareness of
His presence....

Revival and blessing come to the church when we stop looking at a
picture of God and look at God Himself. Revival comes when, no
longer satisfied just to know about a God in history, we meet the
conditions of finding Him in living, personal experience....

Modern mankind can go everywhere, do everything and be completely
curious about the universe. But only a rare person now and then is
curious enough to want to know God. Men Who Met God, 121-122,127.

"Oh Lord, show me Your glory. I don't want to be satisfied with just
a second-hand picture of You; I want to sense Your living presence
with me today. I long to know You. Amen."
