About this episode:

Are you worried about the world today? God is certainly troubled because the earth is filled with violence, chaos and confusion—just as it was in Noah’s day, and that is not God’s order. Even many churches attract people with their bright lights and inspirational messages but lack God’s presence. “Good church” doesn’t mean it is “God church.” If believers choose to stand for righteousness and advance God’s will on earth, there is no need for destruction—just change. God is ready to do something new on the earth and through us!

That something new is revival! God’s order is for His people to be renewed through a change of heart—not just a ‘change of hands’ in law, president, or government where corruption persists.

We are not meant to be passive Christians but to actively pursue God and the transformation of His Church and His people. So how do we partner with God? We already know we can pray to God, and He will supply our every need. Let’s move to the next level and ask, “What can we do for you, God?”

To have any lasting value, we’ve got to not change laws or presidents. We’ve got to have a change of heart.

Genesis 6:9-13 (NIV)

9 This is the account of Noah and his family. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked faithfully with God. 10 Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham and Japheth. 11 Now the earth was corrupt in God’s sight and was full of violence. 12 God saw how corrupt the earth had become, for all the people on earth had corrupted their ways. 13 SoGod said to Noah, “I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth.

Romans 8:19-23 (NIV)

19 For the creation waits in eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed. 20 For the creation was subjected to frustration, not by its own choice, but by the will of the one who subjected it, in hope 21 that the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the freedom and glory of the children of God. 22 We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. 23 Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption to sonship, the redemption of  bodies.
  • What role do I play in my partnership with God?

  • Am I living in freedom as Romans 8:21 says a child of God should?
