What does the word “revival” mean exactly? “Revival is what happens when God’s people, whether individually or corporately, are restored to a right relationship with Him.” Although this is a simple explanation, the process and results are nothing short of supernatural. If words of revival are being whispered in your heart, you may be ready for this transformative experience in your own life – and a newly revised and updated book from Moody Publishers and written by Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth and Tim Grissom is a wonderful first step in that direction.
“Seeking Him: Experiencing the Joy of Personal Revival” is a 12-week, interactive Bible study “designed to lead you into a revived relationship with our loving heavenly Father.” Through five lessons each week for twelve weeks, we study the ‘ingredients’ of revival, such as humility, repentance, obedience, forgiveness, and so much more. Each day is a little different, but usually there are Scripture verses to memorize and consider, personal questions to answer, and real-life stories of revival. There are also sections to be used for group study, but I’ve found that it works just fine to answer them on your own, or sometimes I use them as conversation starters with my family.
Overall, even though I’m not close to being finished this special study, I am excited to learn and apply these teachings to my own life, and to experience a season of renewal, restoration, and revival in my relationship with God. This is truly a powerful volume, and I can clearly see why over 400,000 copies have been sold since the first edition was published more than 15 years ago. I highly recommend “Seeking Him” to everyone who is intrigued by the concept of “revival” – this book will help you begin a journey that will transform your heart, your home, and your world!
