Yesterday’s Daily: Day 10 of 21 Days of Fasting And Prayer

Well yesterday was day 10 of Cornerstone’s 21 Days of fasting and prayer in 2021. This is a yearly spiritual journey the people of Cornerstone have taken together to seek out God’s plan and guidance for the year ahead as well as to pray in His provision for said plan.

Yesterday was a horrible fasting day for me. My sister Brenda was taken by ambulance to the hospital to treat symptoms of what turned out to be Covid. Fortunately she responded to the treatment and was not required to stay. That said, in the busyness of the day, I fell off the fasting wagon and I only got 25 minutes of praying in total for the day. For me that is almost like not praying at all.

But God’s mercies are new every morning and so today I pick up where I left off and continue on in the journey. I have had several words from God during this season which I do not feel free to share yet. So they are going in my little black book where they will remain until I feel like the time is right to share them.

Here is yesterday’s prayer video entitled….Daily

Operating In My Depth

One of the things the Lord has been speaking to me about, throughout the last several months, is about the need to walk in my God-given authority.

Operating in God-given authority is different for everyone. God gives each one of us a different measure of grace and we are called to operate according to what He gives us.

Some of us are tigers ready to fight spiritual battles in the heavenly realms with regal prayer and some of us are puppies in tea cups disarming heavenly beings with the power of innocence. Most of us are something in between the tiger and the puppy. Maybe more of a house cat?

What I have learned over the years is not to overestimate the tigers among us, not to underestimate the power of puppies and to esteem and value the power of every house cat in our midst.

Whatever you are like, whatever your level of authority is, you and it are fearfully and wonderfully made for this moment. You don’t need to be something more in order to God’s work with your life right now. You are simply called to operate in the depth of authority you have right now. It is enough for this present moment and when you need more, you will have it because God always equips those He calls.

So what are you? Tiger? Puppy? House cat? Or something else entirely?

All In….

Well The denizens of the Vicarage are all in, in more than one way. My sister Brenda has come down with some symptoms that resemble Covid-19 so on the advisement of the leadership above us she is getting tested and we are quarantining.

Today was a busy day getting all the bases covered at church since we will be viewing from home rather than leading from the stage. Fortunately Pastor Dan’s test came back so he is able to preach in the morning…. Here is today’s video and the other way that the denizens of The Vicarage are all in.

The Discovery Of Gifts

On this, day 5 of our 21 days of fasting and prayer we are praying into the discovery of our God given gifts.

HERE ARE SOME THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR GOD GIVEN GIFTS.

  1. THEY HAVE MNORE TO DO WITH YOUR PERSONALITY THAN YOUR TALENTS.
  2. THEY ARE YOUR MOTIVATIONS FROM WHICH YOU UNDERSTAND AND INTERACT WITH THE WORLD.
  3. YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN A GIFT BY GOD WHETHER YOU BELIVE IN HIM OR NOT.
  4. YOU USE THAT GIFT EVERYDAY WHETHER YOU BELIVE IN HIM OR NOT.
  5. USING YOUR GIFT IN FAITH CAUSES THE GIFT TO COME TO ITS MOST POWERFUL MANIFESTATION.

IF YOU ARE FASTING AND PRAYING WITH US, HOW IS THE FAST GOING? WHAT ARE YOU HEARING FROM GOD IN YOUR PRAYER TIMES?
