Doxologies: God of Revival

If my people who are called by My name humble themselves, and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

As we, the Church, find ourselves in the midst of the wind and waves of culture, it’s easy to be distracted, unsure and even gripped by fear. But while the sea may be angry, powerful, and capable of consuming us in the frailty of our humanity, it is no match for our sovereign and mighty God who calms it with a simple command, “Peace, be still.”

There is such hope and assurance to be realized in the character of God. He is the Ancient of Days and the living King of the world even to this very day (Daniel 7:13, Isaiah 44:6). He parts and calms the sea (Exodus 14:21, Psalm 107:29).  He changes seasons and times (Daniel 2:21). He causes the earth to tremble at His glance (Psalm 104:32). He breathes life upon dry bones (Ezekiel 37:9). He resurrected Jesus from the dead on the third day, after overcoming sin and death, and seated Him at His right hand (Romans 8:34, Colossians 3:1). He is on the throne, and  He is in control (Psalm 103:19). He is loving and good (Romans 5:8, Psalm 145:9). And He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).

In a time when this fallen world offers little peace or hope, may God of Revival serve as a reminder to fix our eyes upon the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone is the author and perfecter of our faith who will surely complete the work He has begun. My prayer is that, in the coming days, we as His disciples will rest under the covering of our Redeemer and be subsequently moved to our knees in fervent intercession for a world so desperately in need of the love and light of Jesus.

God of Revival

We see what you can do,
Oh God of wonders.
Your power has no end.
The things You’ve done before,
In greater measure,
You will do again.
There’s no prison wall You can’t break through,
No mountain You can’t move.
All things are possible.

There’s no broken body you can’t raise,
No soul that You can’t save.
All things are possible.

The darkest night,
You can light it up.
You can light it up,
God of revival.
Let hope arise.
Death is overcome.
You’ve already won,
God of revival.

You rose in victory
And now You’re seated
Forever on the throne
So why should my heart fear
What You’ve defeated
I will trust in You alone
Cause there’s no prison wall You can’t break through,
No mountain You can’t move.
All things are possible.
There’s no broken body you can’t raise,
No soul that You can’t save.
All things are possible.

The darkest night,
You can light it up.
You can light it up,
God of revival.
Let hope arise.
Death is overcome.
You’ve already won,
God of revival.

Come awaken Your people.
Come awaken Your city.
God of revival, pour it out, pour it out.
Every stronghold will crumble.
Hear the chains hit the ground.
God of revival, pour it out, pour it out.
