Fasting Day 12: The Power of Spiritual Goals

Prophetic Declaration for the Year

This is My Year of Total Restoration and All Round Victory.”

“For God is at work in my life; He will give me victory on every side, and empower me to experience all-round restoration this year, in Jesus name.”


Today’s Reading

31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? Or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?

32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye need all these things.

33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.

34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. – Matthew 6:31-34


Update

It’s fasting day 12.

Please note the following…

For the guideline and up to date information for this fast, read:

Please continue to follow the direction of this fast. As we continue to study the WORD of God, pray and wait on the LORD, His grace for victory and all-around restoration is released in our lives in Jesus Name.


Reflection

Today’s reading and prayer is a call for intimacy with God this year.

Practically all the goals that people set for themselves every New Year revolves around the physical. It’s always about new jobs, more money, the next holiday, business ideas, getting a new boyfriend, a new home, etc. There’s nothing wrong with setting these goals. But Jesus has assured us that as we become more kingdom minded and seek after righteousness, we would achieve these things more easily than we would by just going after them.

So in addition to your physical goals, set spiritual goals.

How would you like to improve your prayer life? How many souls would you love to touch through witnessing or charity? How would you like to improve your personal study life?

When we make God our number one priority, He energizes us to be more productive in other areas of our lives. His commandments, His desires, His love, should all be the center of what we are and desire to be. All other things find their position as a result.

Sure, the Lord wants to give us all-around victory and restore to us whatever the enemy has stolen in the past. He wants to provide us with blessing after blessing. He wants to open every window of Heaven and rain down gifts, both spiritual and natural, into our lives. He wants to fulfill the desires of our hearts. As we learn to pray and surrender to Him day by day all through the year, He gives us peace that passes all understanding and leads us to do great works for Him and humanity.

As we seek the LORD for breakthroughs and blessings this year, let us all the more be drawn to Him in fellowship and service. As we do, He takes care of it from there.


Prayers of Intimacy With God

NOTE: These prayers are culled from Day 12 of the Book, Prophetic Declaration and Breakthrough Prayers For 2018 : Pursue, Overtake, Recover All.

“This day, O LORD, I confess that YOUR LOVE for me is everlasting. I admit that YOUR plans for me are to give me peace and an honorable future. I admit that it’s because YOU are with me that I am not consumed.

LORD Jesus, I hereby surrender my life to You once again. I declare again that You are my LORD and my Savior, till eternity.

I confess that You know my past, my present, and my future.

My confidence, even this day, is that You will lead me in the way that’s been ordained for me.

O LORD, I surrender to You today with all my heart and soul.  Please come into my heart in a deeper way.

I say “Yes” to You today, and open all the secret places in my heart, saying LORD Jesus, ‘Come in.’

I hold nothing back.

Holy Spirit, bring me more profound transformation and relationship to Your Person and the person of Jesus Christ.

I surrender my understanding of how things ought to be; my choices and my will.

I surrender to You the promises I have kept and the promises I have failed to keep.

I surrender my weaknesses and my strengths to You.

I surrender my emotions, my fears, my insecurities, my everything.

I surrender my entire life to You, the past, the present and the future.

LORD, Take, and receive all my rights, my memory, my understanding, and my entire will, all that I have and possess.

You have given all of me.  To you, O Lord, I now return all.

All is Yours.

Inspire and guide me to use my all, my everything, wholly according to Your will.

As I walk with THEE, LORD, please keep me in peace, and keep my family and friends near. Fill me with Your joy, love and Your grace, for this is sufficient for me.

In Jesus name, I pray.

Amen
