One of the many amazing stories of revivals that came through the Welsh revival and Northern Ireland is from the school in Coleraine. By the end of the day the whole school was on its knees and the local residents from the town were surrounding the school walls also on their knees. God touched the area so strongly, it only took one young lad being touched by God for it all to start. How awesome is that???
God moved because He wanted to. No Pastors, evangelists, teachers, no one. He moved the heart of one and let the joy and strength in the one boy move everyone else. Their hearts were open to the touch of God right then, not on the nearest Sunday service or Church school time. Right then. Just their hearts and the Holy Spirit.
If our hearts are closed to new ways of reaching the lost, or new teachings that sweep the Church, we will lose out on any blessing God wants to give us
His children at that time. Open hearts and souls will hear Him more, that small, still voice of calm. We can show the love of Christ and the wonder of the Gospel message to all people not dependant on situation or class system.
How much blessing can we receive if we are open? God alone knows. It cannot be measured by human standards. It can’t be weighed out with our scales. Only by heavenly ways. I don’t want to miss out on all that, ever.
