Pursuing the Blessing
- Pastor Mark Johnson
- Jan 3, 2013
Are you facing issues in your life that seem to be out of your control? Do you think things should be different? Do you feel like in spite of what you know to be the plan of God, you are facing trouble?
One might wonder if God has chosen to leave us on our own or if this is just simply the way life is. Let me suggest another alternative. Maybe we have not learned how to live in the Kingdom of God that was birthed in us when Jesus became our Savior and King. Perhaps we are still living by the rules of the kingdom of this fallen earth.
The Kingdom of God includes the power of His blessing. When God blesses something He adds His strength to that effort. For example, when He blesses us in raising our children, He adds His influence and wisdom. We need the blessing of God for our nation, our church, our home, and our lives if we are going to see the fruit God has promised.
Are you hungry enough for God to change how you walk through this earth? Are you ready for your life to have a strong element of faith? Are you willing to try, in faith, the pattern of prayer, fasting, and holiness that God has established throughout generations?
Many times throughout the Bible when God's people needed His added power in their lives they set aside a time to fast. Starting January 6, we will begin our 21 days of prayer and fasting where we will be setting aside a time to present our needs to Him and ask for His blessing.
