We are nearing the end of our 21 days of prayer & fasting and as we finish, I wanted to share one of my favorite passages on the power of fasting from Pastor Jentezen Franklin’s book, The Fasting Edge:
“Fasting embraces emptiness & starves haughtiness. It is a form of withdrawing from normal life in the regular world that we live in, emptying ourselves of not just food but anything else that we seek, crave, and require of necessity other than His face…when we fast, we are expressing our heart hunger for Jesus and how serious we are about hearing His voice and following His ways. Fasting positions us to be lifted up to see how He sees, hear what He wants us to hear, and learn the sound of His whisper guiding our steps.”
I hope and pray that these 21 days of withdrawal have fed your spirit and drawn you closer than ever to Jesus. I am believing that 2017 will NOT BE THE SAME because we fasted and prayed and that God is going to honor our fast and do exceedingly, abundantly, immeasurably more! Finish strong – and I will see you on day 21!
