"The LORD looks down from heaven on the sons of men to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God."
-- PSALM 14: 2
A dear friend describes some pretty significant testing.
She said in less than twelve months, she'd seen her health fail, her property damaged, a close friendship threatened —all while her workload at the office escalated.
Her story illustrates how life-shaking experiences can prepare us for a fresh encounter with God.
For my friend, it was a year that triggered a personal revival.
Sometimes only adversity can accomplish that kind of revival.
The Old Testament prophet Ezekiel related that as a captive to King Nebuchadnezzar, "I looked, and I saw a windstorm …an immense cloud with flashing lightning and surrounded by brilliant light"(Ezekiel 1: 4).
But on the wings of that storm, God brought Ezekiel an important message, a wake-up call to a fresh vision of Jesus.
When the storm comes, look up for personal revival!
