Turn Us, O God

Psalms 85:4 (KJV)
Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.

This is part of one of the great revival passages in the Word of God.

Psalms 85:3-7 (KJV)
Thou hast taken away all thy wrath: thou hast turned thyself from the fierceness of thine anger.
Turn us, O God of our salvation, and cause thine anger toward us to cease.
Wilt thou be angry with us for ever? wilt thou draw out thine anger to all generations?
Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?
Shew us thy mercy, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation.

What I notice today is that the reviving begins by God turning us. The primary thing is not that God’s anger ceases, though that is the desired outcome. The primary thing is that we are turned.

It isn’t, I notice, an act of human will that brings about the turning. The Psalmist prayed that God would turn us.
**It wasn’t preaching.
It wasn’t influence. **
It was God who needed to make them turn.

There are so many rallying cries today.
Cries for civil disobedience.
Cries to stand strong for our faith.
Cries for unity in action.

“Oh Lord, turn us to our knees instead.
Turn us to You in prayer instead.”
