National awakenings begin with personal reviving.
This chapter counters the oppressive darkness we see around us which causes us to doubt that things could really change, reminding us that “God can save us now!” Bill Elliff makes a powerful case in this chapter for believing God to do great things—having the faith not only to ask for revival but to expect an answer to that urgent prayer.
He explains, “If you think I’m a lunatic, go ahead…. Everything I’ve just described has happened, more than once, in American history. And our God is powerful enough to do it again.” It is time to put our faith in God’s power to change everything through spiritual awakening, beginning in our own lives and families.
