Even though he grew up in a Christian home, James Finley rejected the Gospel as a young man. Yet in 1801 when he was 20 years old, he was intrigued by what he heard about the revival that was taking place in Cane Ridge, Kentucky.

Many had reacted to this camp meeting with skepticism. As Finley recalled, some pastors preached sermons describing this meeting as “the wildest fanaticism.” Christians were urged “not to go near these places,” for fear they might be “sympathetically affected.”

But Finley, like others, wanted to see for himself. When he arrived, he witnessed a “vast crowd” of about 25,000 people. The noise was “like the roar of Niagara.” Ministry was everywhere – preaching, singing, worship, prayer. Overcome by “a strange supernatural power,” he became so weak he had to sit down.

There was no doubt that God was present doing powerful things. Finley later wrote, “My hair rose up on my head, my whole frame trembled.” That meeting changed his life.

Many people throughout time have refused to believe that powerful moves of God can take place and that He still can perform miracles. Many are reluctant and skeptical. But others come with an open heart, ready to believe. The Bible assures us that God still is at work and miracles still take place. Don’t give in to doubt. Seek His presence. Worship Him. Believe that all things are possible.
