As we head into our first weekend of the 21 Days of fasting and prayer, I want to encourage you to resist the temptation to become idle. The word “idle” means to be inactive; to do nothing; without purpose or effect. When fasting, you will often find that the routine and activity of the work week helps you to hold true to your fasting decision. However, the weekend can be a time of genuine struggle, as you find yourself with less structure and more free time.
Remember that fasting apart from prayer and meditation on God’s Word is really just dieting. This weekend, take time to dive into scripture, start a great book, or spend some time serving others. Meditate on scripture and train your mind to be directed to a purpose rather than just running idle.
Hold fast to the call of God to sanctify, or set apart, this time for Him. Your breakthrough depends on it! Tonya and I are praying for you all, and we can’t wait to hear the testimonies of the miracles that will come from this time of corporate prayer and fasting.
Reading: James 1:12; 2 Thessalonians 3; Galatians 6:9; Hebrews 10:35-39
