Psalm 80: 3

Revive us, O God! Let your beaming face shine upon us with the sunrise rays of glory; then nothing will be able to stop us.

This is as clear a revival prayer as you’d ever want to hear. It also mirrors the sentiment that many of us feel, that if God will send revival, everything will be okay. Nothing will be able to stop us when the rays of His glory shine upon us. Who could disagree with that?

The idea of a revival sweeping across the land creates a terrific picture in our minds. Sometimes, though, what we desire, what we need, is a personal revival. Before we can worry about the nation or the world, we need God to touch our lives. We need Him to restore the glory of our salvation to our hearts because it is that warm glow within us which powers us through the work day, all the to-do’s on our list as well as helps us to dream and pray about world-wide goals.

One little touch from Jesus is enough cosmic energy to keep us going for years, at least. In fact, a touch from him can fuel you for the rest of your life. We do get weary at times, though. Life can take its toll on our bodies and psyches. Jesus’ energetic touch sweeps away the fatigue and inspires us to new heights. We begin to remember the things he has done for us in the past and as we remember, our faith is rekindled.

We all need a personal revival now and again. The Christmas season is one of the best times to receive an extra boost of spiritual energy. Let the glory rays shine down upon you. Put yourself in an attitude physically and mentally to let those rays warm your face. Seek them out and be bathed in the Lord’s glory. Be restored and revived!
