Day 8 | Fasting Focus

You Are God’s Masterpiece

Read Ephesians 2:1-10

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. It’s a sequence of: agreementalignmentassignment. 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. We know from experience that fasting allows us to do this (to remove all distractions so we can tune in to the voice of the Lord).

Prepare yourself for a God-moment today. Let’s remember to not focus on the food, or absence thereof, and focus on the One we love. You will only be in this place of life once. You will only have these circumstances come together as they are now, once. This season is a once in a lifetime opportunity – and this moment is precious to God. He is seeking to be with you in this moment, and He counts it as His joy. There are so many life-transforming testimonies in scripture and through the history of God’s people that stem from just one moment with Him. One moment can change the course of history…including your history!

Think About It

  1. Take a moment to read Ephesians 2:1-10 and listen to what the Lord says about you. After reflecting upon these words, how do you perceive the Lord sees you? Do you believe He has a specific purpose for your life?
  2. Fasting allows us to tune in to what the Spirit is saying. Ask the Lord to bring clarity for His purpose and plan for you today. Be specific!
  3. When we create moments, or time, to meet with God in the secret place of our hearts, we bring heaven down to earth. Eternity invades the present. Make an earnest effort to create space and allow the Lord to give you a life-transforming God-moment today.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” – Ephesians 2:10
