O LORD, I have heard thy speech, and was afraid: O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, In the midst of the years make known; In wrath remember mercy (Habakkuk 3:2 KJV)
Habakkuk prayed and asked the Lord to revive His work in his days. The ruthless armed conquest of the Chaldean army, which destroyed every nation it came across, troubled him. However, he remembered the Lord’s power and past victories. He prayed and asked the Lord to revive His works of old in their days. This prayer remains the inner longing and cry of God’s power over the centuries.
We have read the Bible and learned of the beautiful things God did in Israel through His prophets. Recent Church history also has examples of the glorious display of God’s power on the earth. Our hearts long for the Lord to display His glorious power in our days. Since He is the same yesterday, today, and forever, we can expect to see His power as it was in the days of the early Church.
There is a promise of power for God’s people. The Father has given us the Holy Spirit already. We only need to grow in our fellowship with the Spirit, develop to spiritual maturity, and learn how to walk in His power. Ask, seek, and knock until the Lord revives His works in our days through us.
