Revival is Coming! Only Believe! It is commendable that we remember how important each of us is to our Father and His Son, Jesus Christ…. how He values us and sees us as very precious in His sight and in His eternal program plan.  

Isn’t it a wonderful thought to know that our God, the one and only true God, knew us before we were born and took personal note of His care and love for us? It may not be easy to pray for those we don’t like and for our enemies, but there are wonderful blessings in store for us, ready to be showered on us right here on earth.  

Consider Philippians 4:6 – “Do not be anxious about anything; but in everything be prayerful and let your petitions be known; giving thanks, which results in the peace of God that transcends all understanding to keep your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.”  

Here is the testimony of Psalm 139 – “O Lord, you have searched me and known me! 2 You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern all my thoughts from any distance.3 You search out my secret path and when I lie down and are acquainted and knowledgeable with all my ways4 Even before a word is on my tongue, O Lord, you know my words before they are spoken5 You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me.6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. 

7 Where shall I go from your Spirit?  Or where shall I flee from your presence? 8 If I ascend to heaven, you are there!   If I make my bed in hell, you are there! 9 If I take the wings of the morning    and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,10 even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me.11 If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,”12 even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.  

For those who have a problem distinguishing between life and not, or no life in the womb and agree with infanticide, Scripture offers these words: “13 For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.14 I praise you, for I am fearfully set apart and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works;    my soul knows it very well.15 My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret,  intricately woven in the depths of the earth.(Adam was made from the earth) 

16 Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.17 How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!18 If I would count them, they are more than the sand.  I awake, and I am still with you.19 The wicked, O God! (Avenge me of them) O ungodly people, depart from me! 

20 They speak against your name, O God, with malicious intent; your enemies take your name in vain.[b] (I refuse to hate  my enemies for our Lord Jesus has taught us to love our enemies and pray for them who persecute us) 23 Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts![c] 24 And see if there be any ungodly way in me, and lead me in your way everlasting!”
