Shifting Paradigms
By Kenneth L. Birks


From glory to glory, with new paradigms, the Lord assimilates.
New thought patterns in place, captivity to His Word liberates.
Leaving more of self behind as paradigms shift, He transforms.
Old thought patterns destroyed, new liberties emerge in the Spirit.
With faith and anticipation, what’s next is embraced without limit.

New ways and habits established, fruit abundantly appears.
Based on former customs and practices, false premises, disappear.
With each paradigm shift, greater anointing appears to press forward.
Overflowing in the Spirit, past strongholds disappear without agitation.
As strongholds of righteousness appear, the foundation strengthens.

With each paradigm shift, fresh vision catapults further into destiny.
From glory to glory, gifting and talents come forth freely with clarity.
Going forth soberly, ministry is birthed with a greater measure given.
With gifts differing in proportion to faith; vision, and purpose release.
Faithfully ministering in God’s ability, His glory and presence increase.

As new paradigms take hold, pieces of the puzzle come together.
Distinctive pieces revealed, the picture becomes more clear.
Recognizing value in one another, each piece finds its place.
Esteeming other pieces according to their value, glory releases.
Value released; Christ's body emerges as the Spirit breathes life.

With the ministry of the Spirit more glorious, righteousness exceeds.
Seeing ourselves transformed into His image, He leads.
As paradigms shift, we behold the glory of the Lord in a mirror.
Esteeming others as belonging to Christ, His presence is more evident.
From glory to glory, transformation of His body becomes excellent.

Scripture References: 2 Corinthians 3:18, 10:5, Hebrews 11:1,6, Romans 13:14, 2 Peter 1:5-8, Isaiah 10:27-28, 2 Timothy 1:9, Romans 12:3, 6, 1 Peter 4:10-11, 1 Corinthians. 12:20-24, Philippians 2:3, 2 Corinthians 5:16-17.

May God bless you richly, today, as you seek to grow in the anointing of the Holy Spirit and allow the wind of His Spirit to produce in and through you, His wonderful works, as each paradigm shift moves you forward.
