It’s been a sweet day this third day of 2011 — Now on to day 4.
My Journey told me today that we do not need to make New Year’s Resolutions, but rather it would behoove us to ask ABBA to start a revolution in us. I think He already has and I’m loving it! That’s the reason for my sweet day!
Webster says revolution for our purposes here can be defined like this:
a : a sudden, radical, or complete change b : a fundamental change in political organization; especially : the overthrow or renunciation of one government or ruler and the substitution of another by the governed
Oh, this so fits! The overthrow or renunciation of one ruler and the substitution of another!
That’s what we want a sudden overthrow of our own thoughts and deeds enthroning the HOLY SPIRIT to manifest in us the Mind of Christ, conforming us to the image of JESUS!
This could be the most exciting, best year of our lives so far! That is ABBA’s will for us and if we ask and submit, He will perfect us!! I’m sure of it! Aren’t you?
John 14: (New American Standard Bible)12“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. 13“Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14“If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
ABBA, we are excited, we sense Your Holy, Sweet Presence. We sense Your love for us. We sense that You have only our very best at Your Heart. We are delighted with You. We love You, we worship You and we desire to please You and serve You. We desire to encourage and build up the Body of Christ and to be instruments in Your Service to rescue souls from hell, to see them birthed into Your Kingdom. We offer ourselves to You right now and again and again for as often as it takes for You, HOLY SPIRIT, to perfect this revolution in us that we know is Your Will. We have no doubt in our minds that it is Your will for us to be radically changed from glory to glory to the image, to the mind and ways of JESUS our Savior. We are ready. Do it LORD. Do it! And not just for us, but for our people too. Those on our Praying for These list and those on our hearts right now as we pray together. And our IDOK Troops. I have one such solider in mind right now. He’s home safe and sound and the way I see it, he is in perhaps as much grave spiritual danger right now as he was physical danger while abroad. So I am asking You, HOLY SPIRIT, to begin a campaign if You have not already to turn his heart back to what he already knows is Your will for him. And as I think of the one, there is another, go after him too, rescue both of them from their own flesh, I pray. And as we put this to post, I pray for peace and holy excitement in each of our IDOKs, that each of us will seek and amen You giving each of us a revolution in JESUS Name and for His Name Sake. Amen and amen.
Holy hugs Dear Ones! kt
2 Corinthians 3: (Amplified Bible)18And all of us, as with unveiled face, [because we] continued to behold [in the Word of God] as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are constantly being transfigured into His very own image in ever increasing splendor and from one degree of glory to another; [for this comes] from the Lord [Who is] the Spirit.
P.S. Just learned of a prayer need. Keith Thomas has had a recurrence of his pancreatic cancer this last week. He is Pastor at Cottage Hill Baptist Church.
