The Bible Verse That Rocked Scottland

Todays DailyBible app verse,

Isaiah 44:3 KJV
For I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground: I will pour my spirit upon thy seed, and my blessing upon thine offspring:

A revival took place in 1949 in the village of Barvas on the largest island of the Outer Hebrides off the northwest coast of Scotland. Much has been written about the impact of pastor/evangelist Duncan Campbell and the meetings he led in that time. But little attention has been paid to the prayer warriors who paved the way before and during that mighty move of God’s presence.

Behind the scenes labored two elderly sisters: Peggy Smith, who was 84 years old and blind; and her sister, Christine Smith, 82 years old and almost doubled over with arthritis. They were unable to attend regular church services, but for months they prayed in their home for God to send revival to Barvas. These two relentless intercessors prayed by name for the people in each cottage along their village streets.
They reminded God of his word in Isaiah 44:3: “I will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground.” They cried this prophetic promise to the Lord day and night.

Across the village, independent of the Smith sisters, seven young men met three nights a week in a barn to pray for revival. They made a covenant with God and one another, according to Isaiah 62:6-7, that they would give him no rest until he sent revival their way. Month after month they prevailed in prayer.

One night in particular they prayed with permanency Psalm 24:3-5: “Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who shall stand in his holy place? He that has clean hands, and a pure heart… He shall receive the blessing…from the God of his salvation”. Instantly, it seemed, the barn was filled with the glory of God and the young men praying from the Psalms fell prostrate on the floor. An awesome awareness of God overcame them and they were drenched with supernatural power they had never known before.

At that very time, the Lord gave one of the Smith sisters a vision, Peggy Smith saw the churches crowded with people, and hundreds being swept into the kingdom of God. They sent word to their pastor that they had “broken through” and that heaven was about to descend on earth. And so it did.

The whole region seems saturated with God. Wherever people were, in the workplace homes, or on the roads, they were OVERWHELMED by the presence of Almighty God. Water indeed soaked the dry ground as the Holy Spirit conviction was poured out in those days. A stream of blessing flow that brought hundreds to salvation during the days of that historic visitation.

The “Shema” – (Hear, as in Listen with the Intent to Obey) a prayer that serves as a centerpiece of the morning and evening Jewish prayer services.

Deut. 6:4-9 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

The more we Learn, Listen and Live our Father’s Words of Life, the more we will Be AWARE of His Love, Mercy, Grace and Presence in our life and become OVERWHELMED BY HIS POWER to transform us into what He created us to be.

Jesus Teach Us To Listen “Shema”

This video titled “Listen To Me” was posted on Youtube March 8, 2019. I found it after this post was complete so I added it. The “Overwhelmed” theme resonated from my post yesterday. I was “overwhelmed” by a thought from my Dear Heavenly Father God. I only found the Father, Son, Spirit song yesterday morning hours after the post looking for another song.
