…If you are returning to the Lord with all your heart…

1 Samuel 7:3 ESV

Samuel leads Israel in revival. It is always available to you to come into personal revival. This verse tells you how. You can also just say it as love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, strength, your ALL. Repent of how you aren’t doing that and rely on His grace to help you do that.

Everything about Christianity is simple. It’s not easy, but it’s incredibly simple.

I told you I finally gave up all TV, movies, videos last year. How I wish I had done it years ago. What a waste of opportunity. I kept wanting God to tell me I had to give it up. He never did. But I finally hated it (ask His help to hate it) and wanted it gone, and then He stepped in and helped it go completely.

Once it was gone, it was perfectly clear to me that He was never going to tell me to give it up. It’s not about a list of do and don’t. He wanted me to choose Him. To choose to love Him. I was giving my mind, my time, my attention to something other than Him. We’re so foolish! Now He gets all that time and love and attention 🙂 I love it and so does He!

All the fullness of Christ is there for the taking. What do you want?

…as much as they wanted.

John 6:11 ESV
