Here we are, more than halfway through our 21 days of prayer and fasting. I pray that you have pressed in and experienced God’s touch on you in ways that you did not see possible before we started. Maybe you feel like, “mmmm, I’m not really sure I’m hearing and experiencing what I thought I would or wanted.” That’s ok too, just don’t quit. Very often our answer is right around the corner and if we give up, we may experience in the words of Maxwell Smart, ” I missed it by that much.”
Scripture tells us the same thing in Galatians 6:9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.
It’s so easy to get into a thought process that says, “I’m not sure this is working, why am I even doing this?” if we don’t see the results we’re looking to see. But I want to encourage you to continue….keep going! God’s Word is true and you will reap a harvest because in this time of fasting and prayer you are sowing. You cannot sow and not reap! But it does take time. So keep going!
Oh one last thing…maybe you didn’t start in this time of prayer and fasting for whatever reason? You still can. Today is always a good day to seek the Lord with all your heart, soul and strength.
I’d love to hear back from you and what you’re experiencing!
Praying for you! Pastor Patrick
