Contentment comes when you realize that you have everything you need right now.

If you needed anything else, God would give it to you.

What a liberating thought!

So, if you are struggling with contentment at this time, the source of the problem is not the Lord. The reason is because He’s given you everything you need for this very moment. He’s given you the GRACE you need!

And, remember, the GREATEST NEED we have is the Lord and He will never leave us.

The Bible says, “…be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” So we may boldly say: “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” (Heb 13:5)

I was blessed by the resolutions of the great puritan preacher Jonathan Edwards, known for the famous sermon, “Sinners In The Hands Of An Angry God”.

What is interesting to me is the focus on the attention of seizing the NOW, the DAY – to the glory of God!

Be encouraged and blessed:)

#1 Resolve never to do any manner of thing, whether in soul or body, less or more, but what tends for the glory of God.

#2 Resolve never to lose one moment of time; but improve it the most profitable way I possibly can.

#3 Resolve to live with all my might, while I do live.

#4 Resolve never to do anything, which I should be afraid to do, if it were the last hour of my life.

#5 Resolve to think much on all occasions of my own dying, and of the common circumstances which attend death.

Onward …

Bring It To The Father (Lk 11:9-13)

“Bringing It To The Father”

21 Day Fast And Prayer

“Ask” “Seek” “Knock”

Luke 11:9-13

January 25th thru February 14th

As we begin the new year of 2010, I would like to invite you to join me in these next 21 days for a time of prayer and fasting that we’re calling “Bringing It To The Father!” Jesus promised that if we “Ask”, “Seek” and “Knock” the Father will give to us the help, comfort and gifting of the Holy Spirit. Let’s begin the year giving our Father our attention, and giving room to the Holy Spirit in our lives!

What is fasting?

Biblical fasting is refraining from food for a spiritual purpose. It is denying bodily hunger to focus on hungering after the Lord. Jesus spoke of “prayer and fasting” (Mark 9:29). And there are different types of “fasts!”

For example …

#1 There is the “Full Fast” – which is drink only.

#2 There is the “Daniel Fast” – which is: no meat, no sweets, no bread (only water, juice and vegetables).

#3 There is the “Partial Fast” – from 6:00 am to 3:00 pm (or from sunrise to sundown) – which can be a “Full Fast”, “Daniel Fast” or where you give up at least one type of food.

The type of fast that you choose, the length of the fast, and whether or not you choose to fast at all, is entirely up to you. The Bible does not command that we fast; and if you choose not to fast, no problem, you can still pray! However, before beginning any fast, be sure to consult your physician.

God Bless you as you go vertical in prayer and fasting with the Father!
