Revolution – Part – 3
Many read history but few are history makers, I have observed that historians are not as popular and celebrated as history makers. Most history makers are revolutionarists.
“And David said, what have I now done? Is there not a cause?
Until you see a cause, you cannot fight a course. You may not see a cause without a revelation, a revelation is either what ought to be or what ought not to be. May your eyes be opened today like David to see why that “Goliath” must not keep you in the wilderness in Jesus name.
What readily follows dissatisfaction is a DECISION. One of the poorest attitudes of modern day Christians and non-Christians alike is their. • Indecisiveness and
• Decisions without commitment.
Many are indecisive. They are between competing choices and opportunities. They are either balloting or casting lots; which way and which one to take. The simple word for this state is confusion; such like is “smoky” Smoke does not have a direction.
Therefore, because there is no direction, there can be no departure and no destination. This is utter stagnation.
Your direction defines your future. A good number of others make decisions daily, weekly, monthly and yearly especially at the beginning of a new year. They make many good decisions but without commitment, hence they suffer the miscarriage of decisions – My dear Moving News reader, if you had kept only twenty percent (20%) of all the good decisions you made, you would have long been a global celebrity of no mean repute. My empirical judgment is premised on what the organizational theorist (Vivredo Pareto) said, that twenty percent committed team can keep an organization afloat.
People make decisions indiscriminately, they decide to love but hate afterwords, they decide to give but withhold, to repent but yet insist to be punctual but are still endemic late comers. To do one thing or the other, but they never do. It is an ancient malady really look at “But what think ye? A certain man had two sons, and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard.
He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
And he came to the second; and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not (Matthew 21:28-30).
Lord help us! If only men will do their positive and profitable decisions, the world would have been heaven on earth. Men may not know nor understand the weight of their decisions and how much God and men also hold them accountable for non-performance.
“But above all thins, my brethren, swear not, Neither by heaven, neither by the earth, Neither by any other oath: but let your yea be yea, and you nay, nay; lest ye fall into condemnation” James 5:12.
Once you decide, you should do your decisions.
I perceive that the main reason for the abortion of decisions is the lack of the understanding of the technical meaning of the word itself.
Decisions mean a conclusion or a resolution reached after a careful consideration. It is a product of articulated thinking. Decision is from the latin word Decisio, which means to determine.
The revolutionary process begins with a dissatisfaction of the present reality, this is followed by a decision, which you must DETERMINE to do. Therefore, the next stage is determination. By now; you are closer to your dramatic and drastic change – revolution.
