The Revelation Song, by Jennie Lee Riddle

When I think of the author of “Revelation Song”, I think of 1 Corinthians 1:25-31:

For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.

But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.

He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not-to nullify the things that are,

so that no one may boast before him.

It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God-that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.

Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:25-31

The “Revelation Song”, below,  is an example of God using the weak.

Though it has become a really popular worship song and has encouraged millions of people, it wasn’t written by a powerhouse songwriter, like Steven Curtis Chapman, or Michael W. Smith, but by a lowly housewife.

After changing her “20, 446th diaper” 🙂 Jennie Lee Riddle picked up her guitar in her Texas home, which she didn’t really know how to play, and plucked out a tune with some chords she had just “discovered the day before”!  (Read full story HERE)

God used this woman who was “not influential or of noble birth” to make this powerhouse song. Enjoy!  Sing along!  Remember, when we are weak, He is strong! (2 Cor. 12:9-10)
