The Declaration of Revolution

I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed.
I have Holy Spirit power.
The die has been cast.
I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I am a disciple of His.
I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure.
I’m finished with low living, sight-walking, small planning, smooth knees,colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfedgoals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position, promotions,plaudits, or popularity.
I don’t have to be right, first, tops, recognized, praised, regarded, or rewarded.
I now live by faith, lean on his presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by power.
My face is set, my gaitis fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few, my Guide reliable, my mission clear.
I cannot be bought, comprimised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded, delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice, hesitate in the presence of the adversary,negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, ormeander in the maze of mediocrity.
I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a disciple of Jesus.
I must go till he comes, give till I drop, preach till all know, and work till he stops me.
And when He comes for His own, He will have no problems recognizing me—my banner will be clear !!
