Now is the Accepted Time
NOW is the Accepted Time
This morning I awakened early with a thought on my mind that should change the world for the better! That one thought is that God works in answer to our seeking Him and believing Him NOW! We do NOT find Him in saving, sanctifying, and reviving power sometime in the future, but NOW.
"(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)" (2Corinthians 6:2)
One might object and say, “Yeah, but what if we are not ready now?”. In answer, I do not dispute the fact that God will NOT move upon souls who are not ready now. That in part proves the point. We must get ready NOW! We must seek God with all our hearts NOW! We must believe Him NOW!
The church must humble themselves before God NOW!
The sleepy church must WAKE UP NOW!
The backslidden church must REPENT NOW!
The church must be restored to the grace of God NOW!
The church must be holy NOW!
The church must be revived NOW!
The church must present themselves before God, a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is their reasonable service... NOW!
The church must seek and obtain the fullness of the Gift of the Spirit NOW!
The church must make itself available to God NOW!
The church must bear the Holy Spirit inspired burden for the lost and for revival NOW!
At every step in seeking God and in seeking for the revival of HIS work, the church must believe God to do it NOW!
IF the answer seems to be delayed, the church must continue instant in prayer, interceding before the throne of grace with an expectant faith that God NOW hears and God NOW helps in answer to prayer!
Oh God, I pray in Jesus name, help me NOW to seek You in this manner. Help me to bear up under the burden and to believe You in simple abandonment to Your holy will. Amen.
