Fast Day 11 - Fasting Truly Humbles You
On your eleventh day of fasting, remember:
- Rest and relax.
- Go to your prayer time and prayer place.
- The Lord's presence becomes more apparent.
Thoughts for your journal:
- Humility is a discipline and not something that just comes naturally. Fasting places one truly in the hands of God, dependent upon Him for spiritual nourishment in the absence of physical nourishment. Journal how this experience has humbled you and made you trust God more.
Prayer Focus Day 11: Favor
When you truly grasp the concept of God's favor, of His capacity, you will never be the same. You see, when you offer God a cup, He not only fills it, as David said, but He also overflows it (Ps. 23:5). God's "capacity" is unlimited and cannot be exhausted. In the second chapter of Acts, the Holy Spirit didn't merely "enter" the room; He "filled the whole house where they were sitting" (v.2). So whatever you are believing God for during this fast, I encourage you to believe Him for the maximum. Believe Him for His favor... for His measure of capacity, not your own. Rise up and confront the barriers standing in your way. Do not allow circumstances to dictate your territory limitations - your territory is expanding!
