My dear friend, welcome on board. This fast is about abstaining from doing the thing (s) God has put on your heart for 40 days. Some people are not going to watch TV, some people are shutting down their What’s App, some people are not eating a particular food item as we pray every single day seeking God’s face.
Organize time to pray in the morning and in the evening and make each prayer session at least 45 mins long. It is a time of sacrifice, let’s aim to spend much more time with God than we usually do. Let the Holy Spirit push you, it will not be in vain. If you can spend 1 hour to pray and worship in the morning, 1 hour in the evening or at night that will be awesome.
Time to appropriate God’s Word. 2018 is a Year of Victories!
Our own strength is simply something we cannot rely on. We need God’s strength. We need God all the time. He is our father and teacher.
If you are fed up and need strength, there is someone ready to listen to you right now, God.
When we feel off balance, we go to him. When we pray and trust him, he becomes our strength. Use everything that is happening to rely more on him.
Today let go of such things as: self-pity, guilt, hopelessness, sadness, weariness, give it all to God and let him come.
Our beautiful purpose isn’t to act like we can carry the whole world on our shoulders, it is to completely depend on God and live in full fellowship with him every day.
We must not deny our weaknesses or the way we feel, we must present everything to God and ask for his help.
So God can give you his strength, you must give him your weakness! You must admit it to him.
Have you noticed that our strength will always just give us temporary ways to cope and then it will let us down when we need it the most? God’s unlimited strength is our sweet eternal answer and in it we find his love.
God wants us to fully depend on him and not on ourselves, he wants that full fellowship with us. So through everything we have to come to him and tell him how we feel and that we need him then he will refill us and minister to us.
My friend it is not over yet, it is just time to find more strength in God, stand and see him do the miracles he has in his hands.
That overwhelming challenge isn’t going to drive you crazy, it is just time to find more strength in God and see the victory!
You will not be overcome by that evil, it is just time to find more strength in God and he will cause you to overcome it all. Your enemies will miserably fail.
Declare what God says, say what God says.
“7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
My heart trusted in Him, and I am helped;
Therefore my heart greatly rejoices,
And with my song I will praise Him.
8 The Lord is their strength,
And He is the saving refuge of His anointed.” Psalm 28:7-8
I hear him say: he knows his plans for you and they are good, they are perfect, they are awesome.
Let’s draw up strength from him. Call upon his name and receive strength and see the victory.
God will never fail. I trust him. Nothing can stop his love for us.
Lord I totally submit to your strength and I trust you. I declare you my saving refuge. I see your victory and I thank you Lord in Jesus mighty name, amen!
As you pray repeat as many times as possible: “I see your victory Lord”. And then “with my song I will praise Him” (Psalm 28:7).
