Day Eleven – Fasting for Favor
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
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Consider this, God spoke into the darkness and created the light by declaring, “Let there be light.” Nothing has been created that has authority over God. When God created humanity, He declared it to be “very good.” You are very good in God’s sight. Light dispels darkness and wherever God abides, there is light. Allow God to shine on your life. Yes, light will expose the things that you may want to be hidden in the shadows. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, but God’s desire is to love you and heal you and keep you. It is in the light of God’s favor that the beauty he has intended for you can be seen. Step into the light of God’s love and favor and do not fear the enemy. God has prepared a great banquet feast for all that will come to Him and we receive the life that He offers.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
