After 20 years in the full-time ministry, I thought that God was through with me. I felt so hopeless and drained spiritually, to the point that I began searching for a way out of the ministry. I told God, "I just want to live again." At my lowest point, God supernaturally restored my hope. It was then that the presence and power of God came down.
Like a lightning bolt from heaven, God struck me and energized me. My whole life and my past was lifted off me. Suddenly I became another person—a new creation.
Everyone deserves to experience the presence and power of God.
I learned firsthand that revival is renewed life coming back to the half-dead. Who are the half-dead? It is those who were totally alive in Christ at one time, but life's circumstances and struggles have gotten them off track. God wants to bring renewed life to all His people, transforming us and allowing us to truly live as new creations.
How do we get revival?
— Desire. Be strongly determined. If you want the presence and power of God–revival–more than anything else, God will give it to you.
— Destination. Give God a place to land. Churches must have leaders who are willing to be revived and lead their churches to and through revival.
I believe God is raising up leaders for the next great move of God. We must want revival, the presence of God that is beyond humanity. Something not of me happened in me, and then through me, and it began to pour out of me. This can be you.
