Day 10 of this journey finds me in anticipation of the miraculous things God has performed and will do this week! Ive received some awesome praise reports. God is moving, hes working and He has not forgotten his children.
The confirmation comes after the obedience.
Ive decided to live a life of fasting. Totally committing one day a week to fasting. I cant do without his presence. Its too beautiful. I want to stay right here and bask in his glory.
It has changed my life and the outlook I have on my life, my purpose and the plan God has for me
Be beautifully blessed
As I continue on this journey of Juice Fasting, Day 4 has been very interesting and exciting for me. Although I intended to blog everyday, I am only lead to write as God is allowing me.
Day 1-2 of this journey came with a mental battle. “Why are you doing this Steph?’ Is it going to be worth it?” the chatter went on and on. What was very amazing to me, was often I would hear God yelling to me over the chatter. His voice resounding louder than the enemy. Once I even heard God say ” Do you hear what I am saying to you?” I felt reprimanded.
As I moved into Day 3, the clarity begin and so did the hunger pains. Yesterday was the worst day for me, I literally cried and after a while I could only moan out to God. I could not digest the juice, it would not go down, therefore water became my only substance. I found myself on my knees, crying out to God, in between my prayers and interceding
Today on Day 4, my mind has sharpened, so much , that Gods decimal has tuned down to the whispers he mostly uses to commune with us. He has answered several prayers. This morning he blessed me with an timely word to release. and after my praises to Him. He responded “Do you see what I am doing through you?”
I do, and I am so grateful He has chosen me for this journey!
Continue to pray for me
This first day of fasting has brought me a timely word from God. The overall theme for today struke a cord with me. God only confirms AFTER you obey. So many times we bargain with God. Assuring him that if he ” just does this one more thing” or gives us that one thing” we will do what God expects. We will make things right, stop drinking, start going to church more, make amends with that one person etc.
God is not in the bargaining business. He clearly tells us in his word..or rather his messages to me today were..”I can not work with a defiled heart. I cant answer any prayer through a temple of sin.”
God wants us to get alone with him daily. Pray, repent, confess. Our unconfessed sin hinders our blessings.
I need my people, my children to consecrate themselves..sit in my presence and truly listen. Joshua 3:5
I pray this blesses someone like it blessed me today❤
I Love you..
“My soul thirsts for God, the living God” (Psalm 42:2)
So Monday, Oct 23rd, I’m starting a 7 Day Fast. I admit, that fasting is something I do often. Yet God is calling me higher this time. My expectations are higher of myself. I’m in need of some major breakthroughs in certain areas and to be honest, I really need to hear from God on some things. Im writing my thoughts each day…here …openly.
Pray for me and if you have any prayer requests. I will be placing them before the altar. So send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them below
I love you
I Speak Female loves guest bloggers! Today I am privileged to have a awesome woman of God share a tidbit of knowledge on letting God’s light shine through you. Enjoy!
Good morning family. Just recently, I was informed about a position that I am
being blessed to fulfill. This title comes with a huge amount of
responsibility. As usual, I received a pat on the shoulder. In many areas in
my life, there are innumerable examples of practices or traditions that are
attached to a specific status.
For instance, in some churches, it is customary
for the congregation to stand up when the pastor enters in the pulpit. To take
it a step further, most pastors will recognize the more ” seasoned” members of
the church out of respect for their life experiences. In the military, when
assembled for specific meetings or events, it is common to hear a command of
“attention” when a high ranking official arrives. I have seen senior
leadership recognize veterans of various wars who have survived with high
I have also seen the polar opposite of this admiration. Some people
will presume that they are entitled to the benefits of their postulated
arrival. The behavioral patterns associated with not acknowledging these
individuals can range from silent offense to downright audacity with
confrontation. It is truly better for God to create a platform for His Light
to shine through you. There are several historical and current illustrations
of what our feeble construction attempts result in as proof. Absolutely
nothing can be achieved without tapping into the Divine sagacity of God.
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for
wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he
removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and
knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret
things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me
wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for
thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.”
