We have been talking about praying for personal and corporate revival. I have shared with you a list of questions from my friend, Pastor Harold Vaughn from Christlife Ministries.
These are important questions for me to answer to be sure that there is nothing in my life that would be between the Savior and me. Check these out:
Am I dishonest with others?
Have I sought material blessings more than SPIRITUAL blessings?
Is there anything in my life that I would be unwilling to give up for Christ? Do I deny myself daily to follow Jesus?
Have I paid all my debts to others?
Do I have anything in my possession that does not RIGHTLY belong to me? Do I have any habit which I should forsake?
Have I asked God’s help?
Is there jealousy in my heart?
Do I have sinful pride in my heart?
Have I wronged anyone and failed to make restitution?
Can I keep a secret?
Is the reputation of another safe in my hands?
Have I been a tale-bearer or a gossip?
Have I hurt someone—or my church—by needless talk about someone’s faults? Even if it was true—did I glorify my Lord by telling it?
Did I pray for those involved?
Is my mind HONEST and CLEAN in the sight of God?
Are my thoughts PURE?
Am I faithful to my wedding vows—in DEED? in THOUGHT?
Is my home a testimony for Jesus?
Am I willing and ready to forgive any wrong against me or against my family?
Do I have any SECRET SIN that I excuse, but should forsake?
Have I forgiven those who have talked about me?
Those who have talked about my loved ones?
Do I have a right attitude toward my fellow church members?
Do I have a right attitude toward leaders in the church?
Does my pastor KNOW that he can count on me?
Have I honestly tried to be a good witness for Christ today?
Have I worried or been over-anxious about things over which I have no control?
Did I fret?
Did I complain?
Am I guilty of the sin of unbelief?
Do I really believe in the power of God to:
• Cleanse ANY sinner?
• Change ANY life?
• Take care of ANY situation?
• Guide ME in my decisions?
He has promised to forgive every sin confessed to Him! Isaiah 1:18; 44:21-22; Hebrews 8:12; 10:17; I John 1:7-9 THANK GOD FOR FORGIVING YOU! Praise Him for His grace.
Thank the Lord for the WONDERFUL PRIVILEGE of entering HIS PRESENCE because of the FINISHED WORK OF CHRIST on the cross.
I am thankful for these probing questions. Hope they are helpful to you.
