Today’s Reading

It’s fasting day 6.

Please note the following…

For 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.


The reading for today was also our reading for yesterday. But we discussed the first part of that verse and prayed it. Today, we’re looking at the second part, which says that “David felt strengthened and encouraged in the Lord his God.”

Today we’re going to pray for confidence and courage to follow God’s plan for our lives this year and beyond.

There’s the tendency for failures, losses, and pains of the past to make us deeply fearful, discouraged and unable to step out again and dare, to take steps to accomplish and live God’s will for our lives.

For instance, many people who have had heartbreak can sometimes find it difficult to accept love again.  If not properly dealt with, their bitter experience can make them conclude that they are not going to live and love again.

The same thing can also happen to people who have lost money in business, job or investment.

That is why God’s restoration will usually begin with the restoration of hope, confidence, and courage that despite what has happened in the past, the best is coming out of it.

Two things we must learn from that passage:

  1. This year, we must learn to encourage ourselves. You must learn to take back your courage and dare to step out to fulfill the plan of God for your life. You must not dwell on the failures of last years, or keep regretting the inactions of yesteryears.

  2. When things get too bad, and friends and acquaintances fail us, we need the power to stand, to encourage ourselves, and to move on.

Like David, we need to encourage ourselves in the LORD from time to time, and continue in God’s will for our lives.

Our prayer focus for today is centered on divine encouragement on all fronts this year as we serve God and walk in His will for our lives.
