Let It Loose
One of the greatest modern day revivals took place in the Hebrides Islands of Scotland in the mid 1900's. Duncan Campbell was the instrument God used for this great purpose. How Mr. Campbell even got to the Hebrides is a story for another hub, but right now I want to share with you about a meeting that took place on the small island of Bernera.
From the very beginning God had been moving powerfully and a young teen-age boy by the name of Donald had been wonderfully saved. God moved greatly in Donald's life and in a short time, Donald became a prayer warrior on the frontlines of revival. He learned how to get God's attention and retreat into the very presence of God ver quickly.
One evening the meeting seemed to be dry and the Spirit of God seemed to be nowhere to be found. Mr. Campbell sent to the village of Barvas for some praying men. Still, through the evening, a spirit of oppression persisted and Mr. Campbell continued to preach.
It was not long until Mr. Campbell noticed that Donald was visibly moved by the Spirit. He called on Donald to pray, and this is what he said--"O God, I seem to be gazing through an open door. I see the Lamb in the midst of the Throne, with the keys of death and hell at His girdle." He then began to sob and lifting his eyes toward Heaven cried, "O God, there is power there. LET IT LOOSE!"
Instantly the Spirit of God swept through the building like a hurricane. The floodgates of Heaven were opened. The oppression had been broken and the movement of God continued. "LET IT LOOSE!" There is power there. Why do we not seek it? Why do we not care? What will it take for God to get our attention?
The power is the same. God is the same. The basic makeup of the human race is the same (sinful). We can and must have a movement of God again. It makes no difference whether it is Scotland, South Africa, the United Kingdom, or oh yes, America. We simply have to have a movement of God again. For one reason--God's glory!
I plead with you with everything that is in me, beg God to LET IT LOOSE. Turn it all over to Him.You will not be giving up anything. You will be gaining a life far beyond anything you can imagine. But please do not miss the point. It is not about you. It is about God being given His rightful place in your life, in your family, in your church, in your country. Make a piece of history. Fulfill your destiny by giving your all to Christ. He deserves it. Plead with Him to LET IT LOOSE!
