As we end our 21-Day Fast today, let me challenge you with the words of Isaiah and our word for Restoration Church in 2018!
“Forget the former things;
do not dwell on the past.
See, I am doing a new thing!
Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
and streams in the wasteland.”

We have opportunities every day to encourage people and plant seeds of revival all around us in our sphere of influence. I am asking The Lord to open my eyes to these opportunities. It’s exciting to see what happens! I look at it like a treasure hunt with the treasures all around us in plain sight. We just need the right mind set of expectation to see them.

Fasting was not something that I had grown up with in church because I didn’t grow up in a traditional Christian home. Following scripture was not exactly a daily occurrence in our house growing up.

Fun to read but I wasn’t planning on going into a deliverance ministry!

Deut. 2:3 (NAS) “You have circled this mountain long enough. Now turn north,”

My word for 2017 was Health and Wellness for my family and myself. Ironically it has been everything but. As we wind up 2017, I am at my lowest and my sickest-ever. I had a dream last week about a woman who had been waiting for some answers in her life, including a drawing she had entered. When she perceived that it had been long enough that she would’ve been notified if had she won the drawing, she sighed and said, “Oh well,” and erased her cyber entry.

How often have we asked God to use us? Use me God, Use me. I’m sure God hears those words more than we can count. Do we really mean it though? Or is it just something we say without thinking it through. We so often say the words but in reality we don’t want the work that it involves.
