Testing the spirits

Whatever you may think about the so-called Lakeland Revival, here are some wise words on the religious scene today:
1. Have we forgotten how to test the spirits against the Word of God? 2. Is the indwelling Lord Jesus Christ not enough for us anymore?

Because I'm thinking, we don't need more power, we need more brokenness. We don't need more of Jesus, we need less of self. We don't need to seek after signs, wonders, and experiences; we need to seek after Jesus and learn how to abide in Him. That's where the power is, after all. . . in Him.

Sadly, we want the resurrection power without having to go to the Cross. We sometimes want the healing more than the Healer. I guess we all prefer quick fixes and miracles. But brokenness? We don't want that.

But it's through our brokenness that we find mercy and grace in our time of need.

The book of Job speaks loudly about brokeness and rising above the suffering and the longing for death. When we acknowledge our brokeness to God and hand over our pain, we find freedom and strength.
