Heart Searching--Part 3
In previous hubs entitled Heart Searching and Heart Searching--Part 2, I listed several questions to allow us to examine our hearts before God concerning personal revival. The list was given to me by an evangelist that had passed through our area. I found it very helpful in my own life, and some of you have requested the entire list of 125 questions. At this point I will add four more sections for your consideration.
Please take your time and allow the Holy Spirit to work. Rushing through them won't accomplish much. An answer of "yes" to any question represents an area of your life that needs to be corrected. I guarantee that if you are honest before God and get things thoroughly right with Him, you'll be blessed. Happy New Year to all of you!
