40 Days To Save America Fast & Prayer - Day 19
Threshold of Hope
“I will allure her and bring her into the wilderness and speak to her heart. I will give her her vineyards from there. And the valley of trouble will become a door of hope.” Hosea 2:14-15
Revival is trouble that is pregnant with hope! When Israel strayed from her covenant with her Maker, God saw it as a woman who was unfaithful to her husband. He speaks through Hosea, revealing His heart toward His wife. It is a message of love, redemption, return, and restoration from start to finish. His answer, to awaken her heart and allure her to Himself.
Like Israel, America is a land of covenants between her citizens and God Almighty. 17th Century historian and poet, Thomas Fuller, wrote, “I am confident that America, perhaps now grown marriageable, daily hopes to get Christ for her husband by the preaching of the gospel.” In God’s eyes America may be facing trouble. She may be ill-used by her current overseers and representatives. But God’s promises are sure. He will meet us in the broken down place in order to restore us to our destiny. Our valley of trouble is our doorway of hope. There has been a prophetic word given for the church to return, to spark a revival that will be our only hope. For more on this read HERE!
This is the quintessential context in which revival visits the earth. As a nation we are standing on that threshold now. The prophetic promises and living seeds sown in previous generations are waiting for the rains of revival to bring them to life in our generation. Let us allow the narrow place to become our strong place in fasting, prayer, and intercession for the future of our nation. Let us cry out for our nation to return to the Lord.
Prayer Day 19
Lord Jesus, we stand on the threshold and cry out for You to send the rains of revival and visitation on our nation. Awaken the prophetic promises and spiritual seed sown in previous generations. Let the narrow place become the place of breakthrough for reformation of our nation. Come, Holy Spirit, and allure America in our wilderness. Speak to the heart of America, and draw her to Yourself that the harvest You intended from our beginning. Thank you for your mercy, Lord, for the turning that is at hand in our land.
