Something happened to me in Bakersfield that I was totally unprepared for. It was something I observed in the people.
The crowds did not surprise me, because I knew there was a deep hunger for Christ in California.
The miracles did not surprise me, because their faith was high and the presence of God to heal was intense.
Even the remarkable mass conversions to Christ were not a surprise because, once again, I am deeply aware of how open people are to Jesus in this suffering State of California.
My surprise came from seeing the potential of everyday people to topple giants. “Where the people fear the government, you have tyranny. Where the government fears the people, you have liberty.” Some attribute that quotation to Thomas Jefferson. Perhaps. But all I know is this: what I saw on Friday night is the power that should make politicians very afraid.
