The goal of Power Season, May 25-August 6, is to get this meme on your mind and watch what God does then.
Glancing at the meme or repeating the words to yourself takes no time from your schedule but you get to count it as a SYNC exercise. It affects how you see yourself.
The Power Declaration
The "Power Declaration" is, "This is a Pentecost Day, and we have power."
You make the Power Declaration every day in order to SYNC your day with the spiritual power that Christ spectacularly injected into his followers on Pentecost Day. It literally makes your day.
If the Power Declaration sinks into you, your helpless days are over. You will be able to make the difference you have always wanted to make in the world.
The power of Christ will move into you, and every day will be an adventure because you cannot predict exactly how the power of Christ will show up in your case. You will change in ways you are not able to change yourself. You may do things that obviously had to come from some power other than your own.
The "Power Prayer" is, "Make us a signal of the Spirit's power. Let it work. Let it work. Let it work."
Once you have made the Power Declaration, the Power Prayer signs you up to participate. The Declaration sets the rhythm. In the Prayer, you start to dance to that beat.
The prayer is a way of saying, "Yes, please. I want to move with that Declaration. I welcome the influence of the Holy Spirit who will make me more like Christ. I want to catch fire with the fire of Christ. What a great way to live!"
The Power Prayer
The Power Image
The dove is hardly a typical power symbol, but the power we are SYNCing with is not a typical power. It is the power of the Holy Spirit, and the dove is the symbol of the Spirit. (Mat. 3.16)
The orange background represents the fiery flames seen on Jesus' followers as the Spirit came down on them on Pentecost Day. (Acts 2.3)
As we see this image and SYNC with the Spirit, we are basically saying, "Lord, please give us a share in the power you poured down from your throne thousands of years ago. And help us carry out today the same purpose you had in mind then for all who honor you."
Meme = Declaration + Prayer + Image
The meme is a summary of the whole point of Power Season. The tricky part is that both the Power Declaration and the Power Prayer are profoundly simple. They make sense even to a child, and yet the great minds of the world will never really exhaust them. Their implications just keep spreading out in your life. Try them and see.
What is Pentecost Day?
