During this fast we are positioning ourselves for the LORD! .He wants us to step into purpose in a greater way in this season. Many of us are in situations that ONLY GOD can bring the deliverance, salvation and increase. This is a great place to be; it is HIS time to shine in and through you and your situation.
Day 2 is all about capturing vision for the breakthrough we are pressing towards. The busyness of life, difficult circumstances and situations can all cause us to lose focus on the bigger picture and the greatness of Almighty God. In Joel 2, the writer shares an instance where GOD's people recaptured the ability to dream and live from vision. God's children humbled themselves with fasting and prayer and the Lord ultimately poured out His spirit on the women and men. He caused the old men to dream dreams and young men to see visions.
Joel 2:28-29 NKJV
“And it shall come to pass afterward
That I will pour out My Spirit on all flesh;
Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
Your old men shall dream dreams,
Your young men shall see visions.
And also on My menservants and on My maidservants
I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
We need to remember, GOD has big things in store...a well know passage reveals GOD's heart and intentions for all of His people..
Jer 29:11 NKJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
Let's spend day two engaging the LORD in capturing - or recapturing - HIS vision for your breakthrough. It is time for you to step into your promises. Let's prepare to cross our proverbial Jordan!
Finally, the principle of journaling and using the written word to keep our mind and heart focused is key to our journey.
Hab 2:2 NKJV
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
Take some time to recapture vision...write it down...this will help when temptation comes and your mind or the enemy tries to get you off track on your fast. It will also be the written record of the journey that will help in keeping the testimony of God's faithfulness as you step forward in Him.
