Hey folks, thanks so much for joining us on this journey. We’ve already been praying for you and are anicipating BIG THINGS from the Lord during this fast.
As we’ve already mentioned, each day…stop by here for the Fast Blog – here is Day 1
“For which of you, intending to build a tower, doesnt sit down and count the cost first?” Luke 14:28
A generation ago a young, fired up Jim Elliot yielded to Gods call and became a mssionary to the Auca Indians in Ecudor. Before he was killed, he wrote somethng that has profoundly influenced me…”He is no fool who gives up what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose”
The real christian life brings its own “Blood, sweat and tears” to those who’ll follow Christ. Christ calls us to discipleship. When we come to Him, He takes away one set of burdens- burden of sin, guilt, and shame yet He also calles upon us to “take my yoke upon you and learn from me” (Matt 11:29). It’s not a yoke that’s to heavy to bear for Christ bears it with us (Matt 11:30)
Nevertheless, Christ calls us to follow Him, no matter the cost. He’s not promised the absence of storms but He has promised His presence during them. It’s in these storms that we often learn more about God. As a matter of fact, I like what the late Dr. Walter Wilson once said, “God is more interested in making us who He wants us to be than giving us what we ought to have”
Allow God to mold your heart, to teach you reliance, to be your provision throughout this fast!
