It’s time to seek God… this Wednesday (6th Jan) we’re starting our locked and loaded fast! 21 days of getting locked in and Loaded up with the Holy Spirit… #21days #morejesus #locked #loaded We are calling you to join us!
In 2021 let’s exercise our faith!!
TRUST AND WORSHIP
Proverbs 3:1-6 “My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favour with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.”
Decide if, what and how much you’re going to fast.
Remember – We don’t fast to pay a price. The price has been paid in FULL by Jesus. We fast for more… to deny ourselves of what we need/want for something far better!
Why fast in this season?
Every time God’s people are locked down, locked up or held back….we thrive! We explode, REVIVAL comes! When…. we seek God
Last year we all experienced lockdown and this year may well be similar but spiritually we can get loaded up fully in Jesus. There are no limits. The question is how much of Jesus do you want?
Right across the early church, being locked up for following Jesus was normal. However, their ‘locked up’ was prison! and death usually followed shortly after. Praise God ours is not the same in that way.
But in all cases, something would always change in the believers when they sought God.
1 – Prayer would rise
2 – Worship would intensify
3 – Love for Jesus would become infectious and all consuming!
The early church loaded up with more of the Holy Spirit – They knew it was IMPOSSIBLE to follow Jesus without him – Life was too hard!
What about us?
Acts 20:22-24 NIV “And now, compelled by the Spirit, I am going to Jerusalem, not knowing what will happen to me there. I only know that in every city the Holy Spirit warns me that prison and hardships are facing me. However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
What a life Paul lived…We are called and equipped for this moment and this year!!
