I love Thursdays! I love fasting! (well…not the being hungry part… just the giving of myself part…) I love spending every free moment I have sitting with Jesus! I love knowing that there are people across the country on one accord with us today! Isn’t it amazing!
There are 7 of us fasting here today. And just yesterday, a scripture was sent to me in Acts 6, about choosing 7 men (women) that are full of the Spirit and wisdom. And with “seven” being God’s perfect number – I was thrilled when I saw that 7 of us had showed up today!
So this morning, I opened my Bible and it flipped to Ezekiel 34. There was a feather marking these pages. I must have put it there when I was at Carswell. Verses 25-27 were highlighted. It says:
“And I will make a covenant of peace with them, and will cause the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness… And I will make the places round My hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall be showers of blessing. And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her increase; they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the Lord, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hands of those who served themselves.”
Wow! What a way to start our fast today! A covenant of peace! No more beasts! SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS! Safe in our land! Yielding our fruit and increase! Breaking the bands of our yokes! DELIVERED! YES! That’s exactly what we’ve been praying for for Tier 7 and also Greenville prison! And the fact that I opened right to it lets me know that God is doing it!
So then, I go meet with my morning prayer group – the ladies fasting with me today, and I grabbed a Bible so I could share this verse with them… and once again – I opened right to it… different Bible! OKAY GOD!
And if that wasn’t enough, when we met back at 11am to pray, Jennifer said “I went back to my room to read my Bible – and I opened right to this verse AGAIN!” WOAH GOD!
I love this so much! God wants us to know that His blessing is HERE! His deliverance is HERE! His peace is HERE!
During our prayer we listened to a song that said “God’s got a blessing… with my name on it!” This is so true! And we are receiving showers of blessings right now! GLORY TO GOD!
