Hello Surrender Fasters, you’ve made it to Week 3 of Cycle 6. What an accomplishment.
Don’t turn back, you’ve come too far and your best is yet to come. So keep on surrendering!
On the Morning Prayer Calls we’ve been learning that the key to being filled to the full with God is to first be emptied: of pride (Week 1) , anxiety about trials (Week 2), and broken promises (Week 3).
Have you made any promises to God that you haven’t kept? Well now is the time to CONFESS, REPENT, and DECIDE to keep, from now on, the promises you make to Him. Your destiny depends on it! Continue reading
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! Continue reading

Have you learned to be content? That is the focus of Cycle 5 (Surrender Fast 2013). We are praying that God help us master the art of contentment.
This week I will uncover 4 contentment busters. The first is complaining.
Complaining is a habit: the more you do it, the more you want to do it. Some people are better at it than others; they have made an art of complaining. They don’t see the silver lining in anything and if they do say anything remotely positive it’s only after they have exhausted their supply of complaints. But my friend, that should not be so!
Do you know it’s a sin to complain? Well it is. Any time you go against God’s commands it’s a sin. God’s Word clearly instructs us to do all things without murmuring and complaining (Philippians 2:14). Continue reading
Today marks the first day of our Pre-Fast Preparation period for Cycle 4 of Surrender 2013. Are you excited?! I know I am. There is an expectancy in my spirit. God is about to show up and do something amazing; He’s about to make the impossible possible, and set straight that which we have made crooked.
God doesn’t need a lot of time. He just need willing vessels who are OPEN to His plan. That is what the Surrender Fast is all about: giving your life in totality to Christ. Turning it ALL over to Him and watching Him move as only He can.
Prepare your heart to receive from the Lord His goodness, peace, and joy. Expect Him to show up today in your situation and minister to you His wisdom and guidance. Although this is just the Pre-Fast, God is near to you and He wants to commune with you. Continue reading
