Fast from Sin
It is important to put on the armor of God before you get out of bed. This prepares the heart of those who pray on their knees before their feet hit the floor.Ebonie Jones
For the entire week, we will fast from Sugar and Salt, and on Wednesday, we will fast from all food. This week’s fast will be broken down on Sabbath over Lunch. In addition to food, we will also fast from different kinds of weaknesses that are attacking our spiritual body. We will be fasting from the following:
- Spiritual Weaknesses: Lack of desire to spend time with God, not meditating on His word as much or as in depth as you should.
- Physical Weaknesses: Sickness, feeling unwell or unable to tackle your tasks.
- Mental and Emotional Weaknesses: Negative Self-talk, Low Self Esteem, Feelings of Failure.
- Suicide and Depression: Wanting to quit Life and/or abandon all responsibilities.
- Sabbath at MYGEN Church: To make room for the Holy Spirit as we prepare to plan the next step for MyGen.
We will also be praying for those that are spiritually weak in the faith, as well as bringing our own weaknesses before God. God doesn’t desire for His children to be weak in any area of their lives. God has also called us to be our brothers’ and sisters’ keepers. Whether our brothers and sisters in Christ have revealed their weaknesses to us or not, it is our Christian duty to bring them before God so that they may be made strong. Keep in mind that we are trying to get to the root cause of our weaknesses and not simply addressing the symptoms. Spiritual, physical, emotional and mental weakness are often linked: if our spiritual weakness is not dealt with, it will certainly manifest in the natural. For example, overeating is a physical weakness that is linked to the lack of temperance which is a spiritual weakness which might also be linked to low esteem as an emotional weakness.
