“Turn us again, O God of hosts, and cause thy face to shine; and we shall be saved.” (Psalm 80:7)
The Lord gave us this verse as a rhema for the song Turn the Tide that Esther and I have been learning as a duet. Whether the Lord moves miraculously to bring revival to our nation as a whole, or whether He chooses to work through a smaller remnant of believers, every time we sing this song as a prayer to the Lord that I am confident He will answer.
Last Sunday Robert & Kendalyn invited us to sing Turn the Tide at their church. That morning in my regular Bible reading I happened to read 2 Chronicles 5:13-14:
“It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the Lord; So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the Lord had filled the house of God.”
The Lord is answering our prayer!
