Welcome to Cycle 7 of Surrender Fast 2014! 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: “You Were Born for This.” It is my prayer that you believe that with all your heart before the end of 40 days.
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.” (1:5)
God has called and ordained you for THIS! Believe that.
On another note, the Surrender Fasters are a diverse group. We are represented by 31 states (AL, CT, DC, FL, GA, IL, IN, LA, MA, MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, NH, NJ, NY, OK, PA, TX, VA, HI, CA, TN, NV, AZ, OH, DE, MS, AR, SC), Cameroon, Bangkok and Kenya. It’s official, the Surrender Takeover has begun!
Our entire family is surrendered this cycle. Personally, I am surrendering my phone and computer in the evenings. The kids are ecstatic. AJ stated that he was going to put a sign on my office door with the words, “Out of order.” It took me a minute to recognize how appropriate that statement really was. I have been out of order for some months in the evening. Reminder: FAMILY FIRST.

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).
