Is There Anything More? - Day 14

January 20, 2018

Is There Anything More?

With only one week left you may be asking, “Is this it?” “Is there more to experience during this fast?”

Yes.

Perhaps you’ve finally overcome your fear of mashed cauliflower, juiced 1000 carrots, and rediscovered three-bean salad? By now, you’ve figured out how to cope with a limited diet and you’re confident you can make it one more week. With the fasting techniques under your belt, why not focus on the purpose of the fast? Why not focus on Him in a new, disciplined, and creative way for the next seven days?

You have nothing to lose, and everything to gain.

Determine to desire God’s presence. Take extra time to spend with God in prayer and Bible reading. This final week, read His Word daily…larger passages, even short books, check out the many letters than can be read in one sitting. Galatians, Philippians, Colossians, and First and Second Thessalonians are just a few of the books of the New Testament that are so short you can read each of them in one sitting.

Why not clear your schedule of unnecessary events? Make time for a prayer walk or an extended time alone with God. Begin by thanking God for all He has done in your life.

Psalm 145: 6 says, “Men shall speak of the power of Your awesome acts, And I will tell of Your greatness.”

Proclaim with gratitude the greatest of our God and King! Rejoice in just how good He has been to you. Believing He will move of your behalf again, ask Him to meet your greatest need. Ask others to pray in agreement with you. Listen and wait for God to communicate. Journal your thoughts. Expect God to move! Respond accordingly to His will.

How can we know the will of God during this this time of fasting? In the following scripture, we are told if we are to discern the will of God, we are to be worshipful, holy and to reject the world and renew our minds.

“Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.” — Romans 12:1-2 NKJV

Why not call on God today?

“Here my cry, O God; listen to my prayer. From the ends of the earth I call to you. I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” —Psalm 61:1-2 NKJV

You’ve got seven days left. Make them count.

I wonder how I can have a huge miracle show up and still have major disappointments? Looking for more of God and less of me during these last 7 days! Need a miracle breakthrough in my marriage soon or I will need to move on...

Thank you for the confirmation I was thinking the same things, one week to go. Shut out everything and spend more time in God presence, read more, worship more. May God continue to bless you, your family, your ministry, your ministry team and their families. Stay connected to God our Father

Thank you for today’s blog, usually when I reach this point, it gets hard but I’m encouraged to continue the race, Hebrews 12:1-2. I will press in and continue to seek my daddy God and draw closer to him. Less of me, more of Him in 2018. Stay strong brothers and sisters, blessings to you this day!

After reading this topic! Is There Anything More !! My response is Yes I always look and seek God to do more !! Because each day brings more difficulties, trails and situations!! Therefore I decided to fast once a month this year !! Because I need grace and mercy every month of the year ! And I will like to confess I don’t think 🤔 I really did not do good on this fast ! I ate crumbs of food ,and said things I was sorry 😐 I said ! But I know God see I am trying 🙂and pray as I continue to enter these last days he will forgive me and restore !! I am reminded in the word Great is his faithfulness morning by morning new mercy I see and need !! So yes is there any thing more ... Still looking and seeking God to do supernatural miracle in 2018 for my prayers requests I offer up during this fast !! I love ❤️ you all and may God honor our efforts as we continue to seek him in this last week

Amen! Definitely. How awesome it is that Pastor Jentezen quoted one of the passages that I paid a little more attention to just a few minutes ago: Psalm 61:1-2. What a coincidence! God is awesome. This morning I prayed that I want more of Him and less of me, not only during the rest of the fasting period but beyond. Why not practice more of Him every day for the rest of our lives. There is so much comfort and so much peace in putting God first. To God be all the glory. May all of us have a joyful day in the Lord, consecrated in fasting and prayer and more reading of His word. In Jesus' name. Amen!

I thank the Lord by His grace am still holding on to the fast and indeed am becoming more sensitive to the Holy Spirit prompting me to pray. These first two weeks my list was on my walk and relationship with the Lord and am now going to add a prayer for my sons that were once on fire for God but now are so lukewarm seeing this brings me to tears and my knees but sometimes I cant even utter a prayer when my heart is saw. I raised them in the house of the Lord but now they are like visitors at church.

Praise the Lord. This is is confirmation, as I had decided to read more this week, reaffirming some his of his promises. I thought about starting with Isaiah. But the suggestions to read shorter books in one sitting is also. Thanks. God bless
