Glory to God!
Last week we began our 21 days of prayer and fasting that we are doing from the 08.01 - 28.01. We believe the Lord is calling us into the desert for us to spend time with Him, to refocus, prioritise and revolutionise our lives. God's Word to us for these 21 days is from Hosea 2:14-20 where the Lord allures His bride into the desert to be with Him and to establish His relationship with her. With daily devotionals, Richard is encouraging the church to take hold of God's Word, meditate on it, pray it, declare it and expect it. In his message, entitled "Fasting" which you can listen to here, Richard explained what fasting is, why we should fast, how we can fast and what the benefits are of fasting. It is exciting to see that many are joining us on this significant 21 day journey and to witness the fruit of it already.
Yesterday the Holy Spirit led us into a time of extended worship that resulted in powerful encounter with God, intercession and the release of the prophetic. The Lord ministered the truth of Luke 4:18 to us, as the whole church was anointed with oil and received a fresh impartation of the reality that the Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is upon us because He has anointed us to reveal the Father and do His work. Richard then shared a brief word of encouragement from Isaiah 58:1-9 which you can listen to here. In his message entitled, "The power of fasting" Richard showed us that the purpose of God's true fast is to set the captives free, heal the sick, provide for the poor and to see the glory of the Lord envelop His people! It is exciting to see the connection between the purpose of God's anointing upon our lives and God's true fast. Hallelujah!
These are exciting times and we are looking forward to seeing spiritual breakthrough in every area of our lives as we spend time in the desert, denying ourselves for the glory of God, the benefit of the Church and for the sake of the Lost!
