“The Lord’s eyes range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him” (2 Chronicles 16:9).
Do you want to be a revolutionary for Christ? Do you know how to be one? When people are talking about committed service for Christ they often use phrases like, “Go for it,” and “Sold out.” Whatever terms we use, being a revolutionary requires commitment.
When you think about people who are revolutionaries for Christ, who comes to mind? Mother Theresa? Billy Graham? They were revolutionaries. Do you think about great figures in history and wonder what you could do that could compare to the legacy they left behind? Do you wonder if you can be a revolutionary? The answer is yes, you can! Be a revolutionary in your world.
Our daughter, Teresa, is a revolutionary. She has been married for over 30 years. They have two married daughters–she is a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She works full time in a department store and takes opportunities to share the gospel with her co-workers. She visits and encourages the lonely seniors who come to the store.
She loves the Lord and spends time with Him each day.
God will use you right where you are too. Married? Children? Career? Senior? How will these fit in with God’s plans for you? Yield everything to God – time, family, treasure and talent – and He will show you. When there’s nothing between you and God He will use you to do things you’ve never dreamed of. Yielding your life – all of it – to God is the first step:
- Confess all known sin and receive His forgiveness. (John 1:10)
- By faith ask the Holy Spirit to fill (direct & empower) you. (Ephesians 5:18)
- Walk by faith – practice spiritual breathing (see Related Article below).
A revolutionary for Christ is someone whose heart is totally His, who listens, believes and obeys God implicitly. You can be a revolutionary right where you are. God will use your life in incredible ways. Are you ready to take that step?
Father, You are looking for hearts that are totally Yours – so You can strengthen us. May the people who read this devotional yield their lives totally to You today and walk in Your ways. Amen.
