Up Your Game (Part One)

Hello Blissful People!

Our July Fast ended on Friday, and we appreciate the Holy Spirit for the grace He poured out on us to worship Him and fast.

During the fast, the Holy Spirit taught us so much. One of the things He told us is this:

Up your game. Raise the level of your play. Don’t be trapped by your earthly needs.

Let’s reflect on that word today.

The ultimate reward for worshiping the Lord and fasting

Acts 13:2 NIV
[2] While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

The immediate reward for their season of worshiping and fasting was this:

A word from the Lord.
“The Holy Spirit said…”

That word in turn opened extraordinary doors for them, moved them into powerful new realities, and changed the course of history forever.

Be reminded of this: The ultimate reward for any season of worshiping and fasting, the blessing you should seek during your times of fasting is this: a word from God.

Nothing else.

Whenever you worship and fast, do so in order to receive God’s living word. To see Him. To receive a revelation of His will and guidance for your life.

Don’t waste your worshiping and fasting on earthly cravings.

My prayer for us today is that the Holy Spirit will continue to transform our tastes, cravings, desires. In Jesus name.

Tomorrow we’ll look at two of the specific areas the Holy Spirit pointed out during the fast. For now, I’ll love to read about your experiences during the fast. So, share them with me in the comment.
