Sermon Illustrations

Ed Kerr has written a song entitled “Let Your Spirit Fall Here,” a song which perfectly verbalizes the heartfelt desire and plea to receive the help, power, and presence of the Lord God. The song’s chorus says,

Let Your Spirit fall here / Wind from Heaven blow

Purify our hearts today / Fire of Heaven glow

Manifest Your glory / Boldly now we call

Nothing else will satisfy / Let Your Spirit fall.

The first verse, though, begins with the line: “We humbly seek Your face.” God’s Spirit cannot truly fall here— bringing revival, awakening, boldness, and miracles in its wake— until we humble ourselves before Almighty God.
