Celebrated Christian singer Michael W. Smith believes “something’s happening” regarding revival and spirituality, referencing the many moves of God he sees unfolding in culture right now.

Listen to the latest episode of CBN’s Quick Start podcast:

“God is on the move,” he told Christian Headlines. “I’m so grateful that I’m alive to get to see it.”

Smith, who was recently in Vietnam performing at the Spring Love Festival, said he also sees signs of spiritual resurgence unfolding across the globe.

But he specifically pointed to numerous events in America that have him intrigued, including the popularity of “The Chosen” and the viral revivals that broke out on college campuses last month.

Smith said he’s open to being mistaken but believes an awakening could be unfolding before the world’s eyes.

“I could be wrong … [but] I think it’s happening,” he told Christian Headlines. “I think what we’ve prayed for for so long is actually happening. … There’s this resurgence of faith.”

Smith said something similar in an Instagram post earlier this month promoting a recent revival event held at the Rupp arena.

“It’s happening! Something has shifted,” the singer wrote. “So many of us have prayed for this for so very long. Let it be so!”
