Quotes on Revival

“You can’t work your way into a revival. You can’t strive or plan your way into church growth. There is no way to force God’s hand. It is as we lay down our life that we find it. I believe that God allowed me to be helpless so I could learn sheer dependence on Him. When we strive to do things in our wisdom and strength, we may accomplish something, but we always fall short of God’s plans.  …… We want instant solutions and we pray manipulative prayers. As we learn to soak in God’s presence, we enter into a grace-filled place where we release our own will and flow into the will of the Father. I believe that it is in soaking prayer that we move from striving and manipulating to releasing our lives and ministries into the arms of the Father.” (Heidi Baker)

“We don’t understand revival; in fact, we don’t even have the slightest concept of what true revival is. For generations we have thought of revival in terms of a banner across the road or over a church entryway. We think revival means a silver-tongued preacher, some good music, and a few folks who decide they’re going to join the church. No! Real revival is when people are eating at a restaurant or walking through the mall when they suddenly begin to weep and turn to their friends and say, “I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I now I’ve got to get right with God.”
(Tommy Tenney)

“Revival cannot be organized, but we can set our sails to catch the wind from heaven when God chooses to blow upon His people once again.”
(G. Campbell Morgan)

“My fear is not that our great movement, known as the Methodists, will eventually cease to exist or one day die from the earth. My fear is that our people will become content to live without the fire, the power, the excitement, the supernatural element that makes us great.”  (John Wesley)
