It has been said, it’s not how you start but how you finish that matters. This is truer in our spiritual lives
than anywhere else.
We are on a journey in Lifepoint church to see revival. A journey that began weeks ago and has led us
where we are today. We’ve focused on revival with the launch of forty days of fasting and prayer. We
heard sermons calling us to refocus on the mission of the church - souls; to pray for our Lifepoint
ministry team, the restoration of miracles and the gifts of the Spirit, and for our families to be saved. We
began well, and we can feel the Lord working deeply in the His church.
However, we have only begun to see the revival we’ve heard preached about. We are only beginning to
feel the turning of the tide in the direction of a harvest of souls and the salvation of our families. Surely
we cannot stop here, we have to finish.
As we look into the scriptures we can see the consequences of stopping short of finishing. King Joash
holding the arrows of the LORD in his hands, struck the ground but 3 times. This gave him only three
victories over Syria, not enough to “finish” them off. He stopped short of what was possible in God.
This is where we are as a church. We have the promise of great victory in our hands and we’ve been
striking the ground during these forty days of fasting and prayer. However, we haven’t gone far enough
to secure all that God has promised; we need to finish! So we are encouraging you to to keep striking
the ground; to continue to pray, fast, and seek God for His power.
