Revive Our Hearts

Last night I went to a Revive Our Hearts conference. Nancy Leigh Demoss was the speaker, and Shannon Wexelberg played the piano and sang. Both of these ladies have a wonderful heart for the Lord, and it was a great time of praise, worship, and studying the word together. There was easily a couple hundred people there.

Nancy spoke on Isaiah 40. She compared the images in verse 4 to things in our lives (stumbling blocks, pride, etc.) that we need to hand over to God to fix before verse 5 can take place. It was an interesting message, because I don’t think I would have ever taken that from the passage on my own. 

40 Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem,
    and cry to her
that her warfare[a] is ended,
    that her iniquity is pardoned,
that she has received from the Lord’s hand
    double for all her sins.

A voice cries:[b]
“In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord;
    make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
Every valley shall be lifted up,
    and every mountain and hill be made low;
the uneven ground shall become level,
    and the rough places a plain.
And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed,
    and all flesh shall see it together,
    for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

 -Isaiah 40:1-5
 
They had book tables set up at the end of the conference, and I purchased two that are pictured above. I can’t wait to start them! I also picked up a card from Shannon Wexelberg with  four free song downloads. I encourage all of you to check it out here. Her music really is beautiful.
