I love bridges! I have been able to see and travel across many famous bridges. I have traveled across the 7 Mile Bridge in the beautiful Florida Keys. I have visited the great Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA. I have looked down the extreme height of the Royal Gorge Bridge in Canon City, CO. I have also seen the impressive Mackinac Bridge that spans the five mile gap between lower state of Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
Built in the 1950′s, the Mackinac Bridge was an engineering feat. There are two lanes of traffic each direction that flow 200 feet above the icy blue water at mid span. Weighing over a million tons, it is unbelievable that is even suspended by two beautiful towers. These towers reach from the water level up 552 ft. and from the water down 300 ft. until they hit the bedrock in which they are anchored. Imagine with me standing on the shore of the lower state of Michigan peering into the horizon. We barely see our destination of the Upper Peninsula (U.P.) off in the distance. How are we going to get across except we use the bridge. This phenomenal structure spans the gap and allows us to access the other side.
Now imagine with me a group of over 2 million people standing at Kadesh Barnea trying to decide whether or not they are going to go in the Land of Canaan. The choice is simple yet difficult. Will they by faith take God at His promise and go possess the land? Unfortunately they doubted, hesitated and missed the opportunity before them because their lack of faith. Hebrews 3:19 states “So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.” Like the children of Israel, who hesitated to go into the Promised Land by faith, we also can miss out on the blessing of revival. Faith is the missing element in accessing the revival that God wants to send. Our ministry theme is Faith for Revival. We want to encourage churches and individual believers that we can believe God for revival and soul winning in today’s time. Let us take the admonition from this passage to not repeat the same error they did. Hebrews 3:12 warns us “Take heed, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.” Access the “Promised Land” of revival in your life by depending upon God’s promises that He has given you. What we need more now than ever is Faith For Revival!
