Week Six – Day 5
TODAY’S FAST – Disciple’s or Jewish Fast (Consume only liquid or broth between 8 am – 6 pm)
What we think drives how we feel. How we feel drives how we behave. Since Satan loves to whisper and sometimes shout negative thinking into our lives, he attempts to convince us and remind us of our failures, inadequacies, incompetency, insecurities, and the like. Without intentional prayer, biblical teaching and preaching, and counseling and reading, over time it is possible to erode our confidence that comes through Christ.
Jesus has assured us that we can do all things through Him, and that our prayers, aligned with His will, which are His promises, are answered as Yes and Amen. Aren’t you glad that He can do anything but fail? Aren’t you glad He cannot make a mistake? Aren’t you glad He has your back, no matter what it seems like? Aren’t you glad that what the devil means for evil, the Lord works out for your good?
What is required is the ingredient of faith. It is like having a glass, and having Alka-Seltzer beside the glass. It doesn’t work until the Alka-Seltzer is placed in the glass of water. Your faith activates the favor and blessings of the Lord. Lord, teach us to have more faith!
Almighty God, unto Whom all hearts are open, all desires known, and from Whom no secrets are hidden: Cleanse the thoughts of our hearts by the inspiration of Your Holy Spirit, and help us eliminate unbelief. We praise You for Your patience, compassion and love, and for Your many blessings—past, present, and in the future.
Pray with the unwavering confidence that God specializes in impossibilities. Pray for renewed and expanded trust in Him
“‘If you can?’” said Jesus. “Everything is possible for one who believes.” Mark 9:23 NIV
