In every generation, God’s Spirit strives to bring revival to the hearts of His people.  Revival is an ongoing, daily experience.  Each of us should identify with an old hymn that says:  “Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,/ Prone to leave the God I love.”  Deep within, we know these words are true.

Our hearts are, indeed, prone to wonder.  Our minds drift from the eternal to the mundane.  Our thoughts turn so easily from the heavenly to the earthly.  Too often we seem to be in bondage to deeply entrenched habits.  At times our own attitudes and reactions baffle us.  

And that is because our natures are fallen (Jeremiah 17:9) as the result of sin.  Our natural tendency is to turn from God’s way to our own (Isaiah 53:6).  With the apostle Paul we cry out, “O wretched man that I am” (Romans 7:24), and with David we plead, “Revive me, O Lord, according to your lovingkindness” (Psalm 119:159, NKJV).
