Our Daily Bread Designs Bible Verse Thursday Challenge #68 - Restoring Relationships

"Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven." 
~Psalm 85:11-13

 Most of us would like to see revival, we would like to witness a revival, we would like a revival to take place in our church …. But do we, personally, individually, really want to  revival in our own lives?  There is a way to restore things in our lives. God tells us the process. This works not only in restoring a relationship with God, but with others as well.  This Psalm explains, describes and invites revival. We learn that real revival is available, a 3 step progression described for us, if we would experience revival: 

Step 1 - We must acknowledge the truth.  In our relationship with God that means acknowledging that He is faithful, that He embraces us as a loving Father in spite of our sin.

Step 2 - We must be vigilant.  Ever mindful of the desires of our flesh and our weak human minds, we must endeavor to turn our lives back over to God.  Revival starts with us - our humble spirit before God - but it is all of God, only by His mercy can He deliver us from sin and self, rescue us from our faults and failures.

Step 3 -  We can anticipate a glorious future!  One where we can have fellowship with God and be drawn closer to Him.  One where we are characterized by truth, faithfulness and obedience.

Are you seeking revival?  During this season of Lent, it is a good time for us to reflect on our lives and our relationship with God.  It is a great time to begin a revival.

Your challenge this week is to create a project using this scripture or another verse that invites us to a closer relationship with God.  When uploading your project, please use keyword ODBDBVT68 and then hop over to Our Daily Bread Designs Forum and share it with our community!
