An Asbury alumni shared her reflection on God’s mighty move on her old school and urged people to be discerning and respectful of the place, especially to the students and staff.
God’s fresh outpouring has blessed many to the Body of Christ in Wilmore, Kentucky, at Asbury University. But at the same time, Jennifer Peat believes that there is a corresponding responsibility attendees should know when visiting the campus Hughes Auditorium.
“Since the revival began, I have seen in my own life and responded to gentle calls of repentance and a genuine desire to go before the Lord,” she wrote. “I have no fear of missing out on what He is doing at Asbury because He is doing that in me, at home.”
But as she continued to listen and watch the testimonies, she felt burdened for the students and their “home” for nine months. “For them, having visitors on campus is not entirely strange; in fact, welcomed. Yet, they have not seen the volume of visitors on campus in a very long time,” she said.
Pray for Asbury
Jennifer continued, “One of the articles from the Asbury Collegian shared about the safety of the students and the community of Asbury University. The author urged the visitors to remember that this is the home of the students, to not walk the dorm room halls, to follow the authority of the fire marshal and the faculty of the university, and to keep in mind that classes are still happening (even in the basement of Hughes Auditorium where music from above can be heard in the classrooms and halls).”
“I also became burdened for the students and their ability to participate.” Jennifer is concerned with the students who no longer have a place inside the hall.”This revival began with them,” she said. “And the Lord is moving mighty in this ‘Now’ generation that they should have the front-row seat.”
He Moves Among Us
In addition, Jennifer calls everyone to discern their motives in the coming move of God.
“It is my experience and my prayer for you to see that you may receive the Holy Spirit no matter where you are,” she declared. “After the day of Pentecost, the disciples went out, and people received the Holy Spirit in their own homes. I am so thankful that God is not limited to one space and one time. He moves among us and in us every day, all day, in our places of work, our homes, our places of worship, the coffee shop, and the mall… He is everywhere.”
“I am praying that you lean into the motive and posture of your heart before jumping in the car and driving to the “Holy City,” Wilmore, KY.”
