Seeking God for personal revival requires a level of honesty that, at first, may seem quite threatening. Covering up our fault and failures is an involuntary reflex. At first glance, it often seems like the best option. We want others to think the best of us. However, humility - one of the first prerequisites for revival- requires the willingness to be honest with God and others and about our true spiritual condition.
"Whoever conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will obtain mercy" (Proverbs 28:13)
