Cycle 6 Starts Today!!!

Welcome to Cycle 6 of Surrender Fast 2013! Today marks the first day of our 40 days of surrender.

I am excited for what God is doing now and will do for you in the days to come. Expect Him everyday: look for Him around every corner, hear Him speak out of the mouth of babes and strangers,  believe that He wants to do something new in you!

Our theme this cycle is: “Filled to the FULL: The Keys for Living a PowerFULL, GraceFULL, and FavorFULL Life.” I am determined in the next six weeks to walk in the power and authority that is my right as a child of the Most High God.

Paul spoke about this in Ephesians 3:17b-19. He wrote,And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. In other words, filled to the full with his power, grace, and favor!

On another note, the Surrender Fasters are a diverse group. We are represented by many states (AL, CT, CO, DC, FL,  GA, IL, IN, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, NH, NM, NJ, NY, OK, OR, PA, SC, TN, TX, VA, WA, WI), Afghanistan, Trinidad & Tobago and Cameroon, Africa. It’s a revolution; we are creating an army of committed, powerful believers!

Andel and I are both surrendering this cycle. I am surrendering my so-called personal freedom to concentrate solely on our marriage. Not sure what looks like yet, but if God requires it He will give me each step.

What about you? Where are you from and what are you surrendering this Cycle? Please comment below.

With God all things are possible,
Dr. Celeste

A few Instructions to enhance your fasting experience:

1. Join us for Morning Prayer. Or listen to the Recordings.

2. Follow this blog.

3. First time fasters should read The 40-Day Surrender Fast. There is a devotional chapter for each weekday. This will help you get the most from your fasting experience.

4. Surrender 1 maybe 2 things for 40 days (unless otherwise instructed by God). Surrendering too much at one time will overwhelm you.

5. Join us for the Weekly Wrap-up Show featuring the Inspirational Moment by Pastor Donald Chisholm (The Latter Rain Cathedral, Lockport, NY). This call is every Friday at 12noon (EST).

  1. Brittnee B.

    My name is Brittnee. B and I am from New Jersey. I am surrendering inconsistency and unnecessary spending! I am going to come out as one who is disciplined in studying God’s Word and stewardship over what He has given me. As God changes my life in these specific areas, the other areas in my life will fall in to place as well. I am expecting a break through!

    • Hello Brittnee B. Yes declare and decree that you will be changed by the process that God is taking you through! Please keep me posted on your progress. God bless.

    During Cycle 5 I chose what I wanted to surrender but God spoke to me around week 3 and I surrender my finances and have been blessed for my obedience. This cycle I couldn’t figure out what to surrender, I knew what it was but couldn’t find a word to describe it. On Monday during the prayer call I thought I had nothing “Look for God anywhere” Ok what does that mean I’ve been doing that I said to myself, Day 2, during the call still nothing but praying that the Lord will help me but on the night of day one I requested prayers from my prayer partners because I was having a hard time with my son starting middle school and it has been a struggle each night trying to get to bed on time when I asked for prayers one of the sisters texted me for about 30 minutes then I said to her, I got it God is in control just like he has been since day one why am I trying to control this? (I got something) On Tuesday as I read my emails which I barely check my yahoo account, I was only there because I was looking to see when they will ship an order that I placed and there was an email right above the order confirmation from on the subject line that reads “Sophia, I believe today God wants you to know…”when you are loss of what to do, do nothing” Doing nothing can be very wise. When you pause doing things you become more aware of God’s presence, and often an unexpected solution to your questions will arise” After seeing this message and I was like thank you Jesus for confirming that you are in control and not me… Today morning prayer call confirmed that I must surrender control to God and let him handle the situation in my house…
    I am surrendering CONTROL and PRIDE and allow God to Control everything in my life as he has done in the past.
    I could not hear from God so clear if it wasn’t for my obedience and Surrender Fast.
    Have a bless one…

    • Awesome testimony Sophia. I love how God took you through the process of understanding that you can’t do anything in your own strength. Now that you are clear what you are surrendering, I can’t wait to hear how God shows up and shows out in your life! 🙂

  4. I am surrendering the following during this fast: career, diet, relationship, home purchase, clutter and confusion. I have asked the Lord in the past for a companion, and He has blessed me. I have continually asked God to bless this relationship by allowing us to edify Him in how we live, love and work towards becoming one in Jesus’ name. I am also in need of guidance in my career path. I know the work I do is edifying to the Lord, and I know I want to do more, so I’m asking him to lead me. I have struggled with my diet for many years, and with so many friends having difficulty with their health, I want to make sure that I live my life and treat my body as a living sacrifice to Him. I can no longer use hormones as an excuse to eat sweet and salty snacks as much as I like.

    I have been blessed with inspiration and confirmation telling me that it is time to purchase a home. I have attended trainings, I’ve secured a real estate agent, and I have been on home searches, and some of the houses I’ve been spotting have gone under contract and come off the market without me getting a chance to bid. I realize that God has something better, however I am sometimes becoming impatient while I desire to move. Because my space is so small at home, I find that I have become cluttered with tax papers, continuing education papers and other financial items. I have a plan all laid out for how my home that God blesses me with will have a separate room that will serve as my office. After listening to the call on Tuesday, I realized that I will be blessed; however I need to value what God has given me today in order to be available and empty so God can make me Full with His house blessing. I have begun to completely organize my paperwork and other items, while continuing to donate old clothes that may be a blessing to others. That way, when God blesses me with a home, I’ll be ready to pack and move forward. Thank you for the inspiration Dr. Celeste,


    • Way to go Tanya! Time, Effort, Reward…age old principle. I look forward to hearing the praise report of how God moves your from here to there. Be blessed!

  5. I am surrendering pride. I was so prideful, I believed that I wasn’t prideful. Yes I’ve let pride become a shield that I hide behind, and now being asked to drop the shield and let all see, is scary. But I heard the Holy Spirit say “the breast plate of righteousness and the shield of faith is what you need, not the shield of pride.” Thank you Holy Spirit. The shield of faith will distinguish the FIREY darts (pride) of the enemy. You are using a firey dart as your shield and it’s making the ground hard. No wonder fruit can’t grow. Drop the FIREY dart of pride and use the right shield, the shield of FAITH, so that you can grow fruit and receive the harvest. #facedown #cycle6surrenderingpride #shieldoffaith

    • That’s an amazing word! I thank the Holy Spirit for giving you that kind of insight. Only He can do that!!! So glad to have you with us for another Cycle. Your greater is coming.
