A New Vocabulary for a New Season

Each new season of life and ministry will create a new form of language. Learning a new language will require a new vocabulary from which to draw our definitions. God releases this new vocabulary to help us define what He is about to release. The introduction of a new vocabulary creates hope and anticipation of what is to come.  

Seasons of transformation are preceded by a new sound. On the Day of Pentecost, a sound was heard like a mighty rushing wind. Riding on that wind was a new vocabulary for a New Covenant. That new vocabulary was used by the early disciples – the first new creations - to define the beginning of something so strange and unusual that before the wind came it would have seemed as if the hearers were listening to a foreign and undiscernable language.  When God sends us a new vocabulary He will also send us a fresh understanding. Ask God to help you hear the new sound of His Spirit. That sound will carry with it the vocabulary of revival and reformation.

"Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand!" Matthew 11:15
