On the 27th of May, I wrote: I thank you Lord that I am being restored, rewired, realigned, renewed, re-established, rearranged, redesigned, recalibrated, retuned, readjusted, redeveloped, recast, reconstructed, refashioned, reformed, remodelled, renovated, reshaped, revamped, revised, rejuvenated….
I shared this with a few friends and one friend encouraged me to delve into the word revolution and so I started studying it. Here’s what I’ve discovered so far:
Revolution pronounced rev-uh-loo-shuh n. It is said to be derived from the Latin word revolūtiō – the act of revolving (turning around).
Revolution is when a fundamental change in political power or organisational structures happens in a short amount of time. A concerted group rise up in revolt against current authorities and take control. A complete change will result from one constitution to another or an extreme modification of an existing constitution will happen. A radical, abrupt and pervasive change will occur in society and the social structure.
A sudden, complete or marked change occurs in something!
“Yet so often it seems that victory eludes us. It is when our self-confidence is finally destroyed and is replaced with dependence upon God that we have victory.” K.P. Yoannan
I need a God led revolution to bring a dramatic change to my life, which will enable me to bring a dramatic change to the world around me!!!
Through Christ Jesus I have received a free gift from God of salvation. This means my old sinful self was crucified and put to death with Jesus. Christ was raised from the dead so that I may live a new life, one where sin no longer has any power over my life! Therefore, the power of sin is void in my life – a dramatic revolution has occurred all because Jesus is now seated in glory and honour. I am able to live under the freedom of God’s grace. I choose to obey God, wholeheartedly obey His teachings, which means that I can live out a righteous life. (Inspired by Romans 6)
My personal revolution declaration:
- I’m no longer a slave to sin, it NO longer controls me or has any power over me!
- For I’m controlled by God and He enables me to live life abundantly!
- From my personal revolution, I can instigate a worldwide revolution – declare the world IS under new management which is God’s management!
My prayer from various song lyrics:
God I look to You, I won’t be overwhelmed
Give me vision to see things like You do
God I look to You, You’re where my help comes from
Give me wisdom, You know just what to do
Beautiful Surrender is where I wanna be, locked into Your arms, for all eternity
Come and take my hand, You can lead me where You please
That Beautiful Surrender is chasing after me
You make me brave, You call me out beyond the shore into the waves
You make me brave, no fear can hinder now the Love that made a way
You make me brave, no fear can hinder now the promises You’ve made
I give it all to You, God
Trusting that You’ll make something beautiful out of me
“Through a revolution in our identity, we can think with divine purpose. Such a change begins with a revelation of Him.” Bill Johnson
