“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.“ Philippians 4:13
I read a quote today that said, “God sometimes whispers, so that we will move closer to hear him”. How powerful is that? This past year I grew closer to God, but to be honest I was humbled and realized that I was so far out of tune with God that I didn’t even know where to start. The 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting begins with Prayer then Fasting. When you tune out the “noise” you can turn the volume up on what God is trying to tell you. Fasting allows you to get closer to God mind, body and soul.
Humble prayers are powerful prayers. When we get out of the way and let God pray through us instead of giving Him A to do list, we set ourselves up to experience amazing things. Pray specific, persistent and expectant.
When I learned about doing the Prayer and Fast, I knew I couldn’t do it alone, so I recruited the Bros and Barbells to help with my walk with God. Don’t be afraid to build a bond of trust and Pray, cry and worship together. As we like to say do life on purpose together. I know It will be tough, but so worth it.
The next 21 days I want to encourage everyone that we got this, as a church we can grow closer to God and the light he gives us we can shine for others. I for one will be fasting many things and resetting my heart and mind so God can do HIS work through me for others.
