Why are we asking for a spiritual awakening in this generation? Is it just to preserve ourselves and the lukewarm gospel of prosperity that has been present in American pulpits for several decades? At a certain point in time the Lord will defend His own name. Are we tired of the name of Jesus being trampled on and brought low in this generation? Is God able to glorify His name once more in this generation? There is a declaration against the people of God that echoes the taunt of Goliath: you will serve us. Pray without ceasing! Jesus will be glorified!
Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin. But I come to you in the name of the Lord of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied. This day the Lord will deliver you into my hand, and I will strike you and take your head from you. And this day I will give the carcasses of the camp of the Philistines to the birds of the air and the wild beasts of the earth, that all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel. Then all this assembly shall know that the Lord does not save with sword and spear; for the battle is the Lord’s, and He will give you into our hands.”1 Samuel 17:45-47
