"We need the power of God. We are not going anywhere without it. In fact, we are going backwards."
I believe the Lord himself has the power to turn it all around. There is no power of the enemy that is more powerful than the power of God. God has the power to turn it all around. He is ready to do it. He is anxious for his power to be manifested within the Church. He wants us to know his power for the sake of the whole Church and the world.
If he wants to deal with it why doesn't he do it? He wants to use us to do it. We have to understand what he wants to do and let him do it. We have to ask him to do it. We need to ask the Lord for what he wants to do. Are we ready to do that?
"Lord, you do whatever you want to do here. You take over. I'm stepping aside and I'm going to let you do what you want to do."
I believe that if enough of us come together with this same prayer we may be surprised by what the Lord might do.
The power of the Holy Spirit is available to the Church. The Lord wants to give the power of his Spirit to the Church. Do we want that? Are we ready to ask for that? Are we ready to say yes to what the Lord wants to do?
