This is the Day - Monday, April 9th, 2007

“This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!”
Psalm 118:24

When I woke-up this morning, I woke up with enthusiasm. I woke up with energy. I couldn’t believe it. This is the DAY! God has ordained our steps for this very day. And as the psalmist wrote, “This is the day which the Lord has made.” The 40-day tent revival, that so many people all throughout this city have been praying for is finally here. And yet for some reason, I am calm. I am relaxed. I believe we are walking into something that we will look back on this initial day and celebrate this day. Therefore, “let us rejoice and be glad in it!”

This is the day the Lord has made, and it started with our very first prayer time under the tent at 6:30 a.m. It was a brisk 45 degrees and yet the Lord still provided many people from all walks of life to gather and cry aloud to the Lord. It was AWESOME! It was the beginning of picturing the body of Christ as ONE here in Dallas. We had blacks, whites, Hispanics, conservatives, charismatics…we had the true body of Christ coming together asking for Lord to make Himself known. Thank-you Jesus! I was quite encouraged. If this is a glimpse of what is to come, then get ready…the Spirit is going to move in a mighty way! He already is. *In fact, the local Christian radio station was already there doing live interviews. Praise Jesus for He is already getting the message out to others at 6:30 a.m.!

With this morning prayer time under our belt, I firmly believe a good foundation was established for this tent-revival. Those that were there recognized that this gathering was a unique experience, and many more to come. What a blessing to unite as one in prayer. We are all so different in how we communicate to the Lord, but what a beautiful sound it was to hear others pray aloud. We all communicate so differently, yet we have the same desire. We pray different words, yet we have the same longings. The reason for our gathering was because we all want to know and experience the Lord in a more intimate and real manner. Thank-you Jesus for this morning’s prayer time.

May each of us be encouraged because revival is starting in this city. And I give praise and thanks to the Lord for He is allowing us to be apart of something that is life-changing. Who knows what will happen throughout the 40-days, but either way, let us continue to rejoice and be glad in God’s lovingkindness for His people. Amen.
