"Revival"

On February 10th, I was praying for Oak Life and international orphan care. I was asking earnestly, “What is your perspective? What do you want for your children in shelters?”

As clear as can be, I heard Him reply, “Orphan care is part of the next revival.”

He said it so firmly and loudly, and my heart lept inside of me. I was drawn to immediately write those words on our office white board, so everyone in our organization could read and participate in the promise.

Little did I know, only two days earlier on February 8th, revival had already begun to break out at Asbury University in Central Kentucky. Since that day, non-stop worship, repentance, miracles and community have taken place there. Pilgrims from around the world have traveled to participate, and within weeks, the meetings have transitioned from the small campus chapel to the massive Rupp Arena in Lexington.

God is not done wooing mankind.

He is not done calling the orphaned children back into sonship with their Heavenly Father.

And this time, when the revival dust settles and the forever-changed lives return home to live out their new-found freedom, a genuine love for the widow and orphan will be the natural outpouring.

The love of Jesus is going to leave the church walls and step into children’s shelters around the world.

Because that has always been the fundamental movement of the Father of Orphans.

Come, Lord! Your adopted children are ready!
