A Nationwide Call for Spiritual Awakening



Revival and the Glory of God

[Christians] want revival but, sadly, for the wrong reasons, Henry Blackaby once told me. “Until we want revival for the glory of God, God will not send it,” the Experiencing God author said over lunch one day at the North American Mission Board. Blackaby’s statement is one […]


Our Warrior

Last week’s devotion also addressed the vital topic of national fear. Fear can paralyze a nation or cause it to react in inappropriate ways. President Franklin Roosevelt understood that. When addressing a nation mired in the Great Depression, he reminded the people that the only thing they […]


Hope in the Lord

The promise of renewed strength makes this a favorite Bible verse for many. The picture of a soaring eagle brings hope to those who are weary. For many years now, another soaring eagle has brought hope to many. The picture of America as a soaring eagle, proud, […]


The Gift of Wisdom

Proudly watching over New York Harbor and the nation stands the majestic Statue of Liberty. Liberty is portrayed in this statue and elsewhere as a lady. Such a precious commodity as liberty is rightly given human attributes. It is fascinating that the book of Proverbs does a […]

If there was ever a nation that understood what it means to be a refuge for the oppressed, it ought to be the United States. The inscription from Emma Lazarus on the base of the Statue of Liberty has meant far more than words to millions. “Give […]


The Wise Nation

This well-known passage of Scripture is typically applied to individuals, and rightly so. The principle, however, can be applied to a whole nation. If a nation is characterized by the fear of the Lord in its dealings, both internally and internationally, it will be a nation known […]


The Power of Fasting

The first time the Lord really laid on my heart to do a pretty long fast was in 1995. Our church was growing, and I was burning out. We had little kids, and we were seeing a lot of great things happen. I was not tired of […]


Personal Revival or National Revival?

If you faithfully obey the voice of the LORD your God, being careful to do all his commandments that I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth. (Deuteronomy 28:1 ESV) The entire book of Deuteronomy is […]


Listening to the Voice of God

Welcome to 2018! I am pumped about the possibilities this year affords us all. The opportunities are endless because our mission and message are timeless. The mission and message 2,000 years ago, as John the Baptist built a highway for the physical arrival of Jesus Christ, are […]
