Lent Week 1: The Exodus – Moving from Here to There

Welcome to Cycle 2 of Surrender 2012! I am so excited that you are on this journey with me. And what a journey it will be.

This morning I presented God’s theme for this 6-week session: The Exodus – Moving from Here to There. That sounds exciting until you realize what is really being presented.  God’s not saying I am moving you from one season to the next but that He wants you to move from your will to His. Yikes, now that is just darn right scary. But this is the season for you to let it all go. In fact, my prayer partner Stephanie said to me just moments ago that if we surrender “fast” God will move fast.

Don’t you want to be free? Then during this time determine in your mind that whatever God tells you to do that you going to do it, and do it fast. Most of the time you aren’t going to understand why He’s telling you to do this or that, and you may not think it’s fair, but as He told us today in the devotional, “His ways are not our ways, nor His thoughts our thoughts.” Therefore, simply move as He instructs and trust Him with the outcome.

That is what I have done this time around. I heard the Lord urging me to let go of distractions. For that reason I will not be on FB and Twitter for the entire fast. I will also limit my time on email. I know that God has some things that He wants to download into my spirit and I need to be quiet and distraction-free to hear Him. If Jesus pulled away regularly and I know I need to!

Lastly, each morning we are praying together. For tomorrow’s call please have with you a small bottle of oil.

Now here are a few housekeeping matters:

Morning prayer is from 7:00 – 7:15am (EST, M-Th). Please note the NEW phone number. Please submit prayer request to: prayer@surrenderfast.com.

The conference line is limited to 96 callers. If you can’t get on at 7:00am, don’t fret. You can listen to the recorded message as early at 7:20. Plese note that the recorded call in number is DIFFERENT from the live call in number.

Lastly, please help me welcome Stephanie Davis, my new administrative assistant! Her email address is admin@drcelesteowens.com. She will be responding to many of your request, comments, and questions throughout the fast. There are also a few additions to the Prayer Team.

I am so excited about the changes that are about to take place in your life. If you follow this fast faithfully, I promise you your life will never be the same!

With God all things are possible,
Dr. Celeste

    Okay i’m excited to see what Daddy has in store with this fast. Because after the first 40 days fast (where I really initially didn’t want to “enlarge my territory”) … yea well, the fast was over on Feb. 9th and Feb. 14th I got engaged! Really, Lord? I wasn’t even dating! So, clearly I need this “Moving From Here To There” fast because He knows, I crave to be in His perfect will. Day one is over and He’s already speaking: Put your trust in Me and Me alone, for I care for you, I am your provider. Don’t be foolish enough to trust in your own strength, you can only accomplish what I have for you through the power of Jesus Christ. Don’t put your trust in man, the covenant is between you and Me.

    • Wow, Shar congratulations! You weren’t even dating? You need to share more of your fasinating story please! 🙂

      You are right, Moving from Here to There, we need to be in His will and trust Him with every area of our lives. I am so glad you are part of the journey once again! Be blessed!
