Day 21 | February Fast 2017

21 February 2017

February Fast Conclusion

As the February Fast draws to a close, the hope is that you have found it to be an enriching experience. Beginning the year active in devotion to God, together with the church family.

No matter how these 21 days have been for you, perhaps inclusive of some memorable encounters with God in the Word, or maybe difficult at times as you have fasted and fought in prayer. Let me encourage you to from here on to continue in your pursuit of God this year.

“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you”. James 4:8

Consider an action step in your devotion to God and your connection to the people of God in the coming days. Perhaps this is deciding on the next time you will fast, getting baptized, or becoming part of a Connect Group to regularly pray, study the Bible, and journey with other believers. Maybe it is creating a daily routine to read the Word, asking God to speak to you.
Together as a church, let’s use this February Fast as a springboard into a deeper relationship with God and be full of faith as we declare “I am the one”, partnering with God to see the attention of this nation turned to Jesus Christ.

 

 –  Matt Blount
