Have you been on the 21 Day Fast? If so, determine now in your heart and spirit to finish strong. Let’s conclude this thing with a burst of spiritual energy. Let’s run the race as to win it! 1 Corinthians 9:24-27 says to run in such a way as to obtain the prize, but to do what we must to bring our body into subjection. Right now as I sit writing this, stomach growling, being completely empty because I am at the end of a 24 hr total fast, I must do just that. I bring my body under subjection. I choose to dwell on things of God and what He has to say to me and to you. I allow Him to speak and I listen.
So, let’s “lay aside every weight and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance, the race that is set before us.” (Hebrews 12:1)
What’s the purpose of this Fast? To be in the position to hear God when He speaks so I can do the work which He sent me to do. This fast is just preparation for the race that He as given us to run while here on Earth. I want to be able to say, “I have glorified you on Earth. I have finished the work which You have given me to do”, just as Jesus said in John 17:4.
My life’s goal is to fulfill my God-given purpose! As God reveals His will for me, I am determined to do just what He directs me to do. I want to be able to say (2 Timothy 4:7) “I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.” I want to finish strong!
