Day 10 is Hallelujah Day!!! You are at the halfway mark. Don’t loose focus now. You are almost there - a place of victory! Don’t worry about the 11 days left; each day, just think about one more day. I know by now that you are experiencing the presence of God in your prayer and worship time. As I look back on my fasting journal, I can see the progress that I’ve made toward renewal. Life can be so overwhelming at times that we just need to get from under the pressure of whatever is bringing us stress and literally see ourselves giving our cares over to the Lord. The Bible tells us to cast our cares on Him because He continues to care for us. Fasting enables you to let go and let God have His way.
Anything having real value is worth its cost. Fasting is not a pleasurable experience to say the least. In fact, the Bible describes it as an affliction of the flesh, but the sacrifice is well worth the benefits.
TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: The Lord has strengthened me to complete that which I have started. I will be steadfast and unmovable in my resolution to seek the face of God in fasting and prayer. I am doing a good thing and will not be stopped, for the Lord is being glorified in my sacrifice.
1. Be sure your conviction to finish is sure. Your desire for victory must exceed the cost of denial.
2. Add your local church and the body of Christ at-large to your prayer list.
3. Don’t give up even if you have fallen during the fast. You’ll make it, if you get up and commit to finishing that which you have begun.
