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!
When we let God lead and we follow, we will see powerful victories come in and we won’t need to force anything.
Any victories God wants to give you this year, let him lead you according to his will and they will not fail to happen. I have no doubt many of us have come to realize this by now.
When we take the lead and tell or expect God to follow, he will always put us in a position where we hand leading back to him and we follow.
Many times the victories we want are not happening because we are not doing something God is saying and we don’t yet have the type of relationship he wants us to have with him.
1 Kings 2:3 tells us: “and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go.”
We are asked to observe God’s requirements and obey them so that we may prosper in all we do and wherever we go! That is super powerful! That is the real power of God.
If you are chasing what God wants you to chase, it is his timing and you are observing his requirements, he is going to establish it.
Success in the bible is always associated to God. There is nothing like when God is with you and you are with him and determined to obey him as he leads. You will not be stopped and everything God wants to do through your ministry and your life will be done by him.
Success is given by God. God’s definition of success is very different from the world’s definition of success. The world sees success as the achievement of a certain status or the completion of a goal. God sees success as the achievement of something that is meaningful in this life and in the life to come. That is the type of success you want.
You don’t want to do something that is useful in this life and you don’t get access to the next life, meaning you don’t get to heaven.
If you are going to get to heaven, then you must obtain your success from God and live in full fellowship with him observing his requirements and obeying them. The success of this world does not lead to heaven. God’s success leads to heaven! Seek that success, those victories.
When we are pleasing God, we will be blessed. Let’s please him my friend and see him do what he says he wants to do.
I pray that as you choose to observe and obey God’s requirements and have the type of relationship he wants you to have with him, he will release many more victories in your life this year in Jesus name!
What requirements of God do you think you haven’t been following? Write them down and read them to God and surrender everything you are to him as you repent and receive his forgiveness.
