If you’ve been around in the church for any time at all, you have heard many of the same things over and over and over again. And yet, I have found this to be true. We can “hear” things and “know” things and yet still be clueless. To quote my Grandma Burns, “My brain leaks.” I find that it is prudent that I get reminded of things that I already “know” so that I can begin to put these truths into practice.
With that in mind, allow me this week to remind you of a thought about children in revival that I know that you already know. In fact, many of you will be able to quote the remainder of the verse after just reading the first four or five words.
“For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward Him …” 2 Chronicles 16:9.
Here is this week’s thought (reminder) … God is looking for an opportunity to show up in your children’s ministry. He will pass by 100 children’s ministries just to get to yours, the ministry that will invite Him to come and abide. In fact, He doesn’t just want to appear. God wants to show that His Spirit is there by doing mighty things. And, He wants to do it on YOUR behalf! Did you catch all of that? God wants to show up and demonstrate His presence in your Sunday school class, mid-week Bible club, or Children’s church service and He will do it just because of YOU, the person who has a heart that has “given themselves completely to Him” (New Century Version).
