Created for purpose! 🖼️🙌

We are 5 days into our 21 days of prayer and fasting! How’s it going? If you haven’t started yet, it’s not too late. Pray about how God wants you to fast and do it.

Below is an excerpt taken from Awakening: 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting on the YouVersion Bible app. If you want read this everyday of the fast, follow along here.

One of the reasons I think prayer and fasting are so powerful when combined is that together they activate a chain reaction where we see God’s kingdom manifest on earth. This sequence is what I call agreement…alignment…assignment. When we come into agreement with God, we are aligned with God’s perfect will on earth as it already is in heaven. When we are aligned with heaven, we find that God can use us in ways we never thought possible; then we begin to walk in our assignment –the purpose that God created us to fulfill.

God has given you a specific and unique assignment. You are a masterpiece designed by God to make a difference in this world. There is a very specific purpose for which you were created. God is the only One who can truly inform you of that purpose, and in order to fulfill it, you will need His power.

Here’s the deal: when it comes to pursuing our God-given assignment, if you and I are not in tune with God’s voice, we will only hear the voice of the crowd and get weighed down by the pressures of life. Like a radio station we can’t quite hear clearly, all the voices will cause static and make it difficult for us to tune into the Voice we need to hear.

As you fast, let your hunger help you focus on God. Every time you experience a pang of hunger, ask God to increase your hunger for Him in the same way that you hunger for food.

Mark your calendar! 🗓

Exciting things are coming to Crosspoint! See below for several of these opportunities to serve and grow together. Be sure to save the dates and be a part.

January 8 - 28
21 Days of Prayer and Fasting

We are kicking off the year by connecting with our Lord and Savior in a powerful way - demonstrating (and being reminded of) our dependence on Him through prayer and fasting. See the fasting recommendations (above) for help and encouragement through these important, spiritually sharpening days.

Also, I would love for you to join with me in this Bible plan on the YouVersion Bible app. We can share how God is working in our lives through the fast and how He speaks to us through His Word and the devotional each day.
