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,
A few Instructions to enhance your fasting experience:
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).
