FASTING CREATES SPACE FOR GOD TO MOVE.
This is our 8th year of calling the church to a 21 Day fast. Why do we feel it’s important? When you give God your first through fasting, praying, and giving at the beginning of the year, you set the course for the entire year. Matthew 6:33 says, “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” We believe that fasting creates space in our lives for God to move. How do we do that?
Practically speaking, it can look a lot of different ways. We encourage you to pray about it! Ask God what you could lay down for 21 days in January in order to pick up more time with Him. Ask Him how He would like to see you set yourself, your wants and your desires aside to become more aware of His. To help you, below are links to two resources. One is a guide to help you in the process of deciding what and how to fast as well as to help you prepare. The other is our 3 month SOAP guide and reading plan. As a church we want to read scripture together and allow what we are reading collectively to influence our conversations when we gather. Our prayer for you is that through this season of fasting you would experience miracles, growth, depth and His presence in greater ways.
