Day 10 Giving God Possession of Our Future
II Timothy 1:12 “For this reason I also suffer these things; nevertheless I am not ashamed, for I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep what I have committed to Him until that Day.”
We have lived much of our lives unsure of our future. We have often allowed the unknown to keep us from being obedient in this moment. We have trusted God to save our souls but often mistrust Him with tomorrow.
Today we fast and pray for the faith to put all of our future in God’s hands. We declare today that He and He alone will open doors that men cannot shut and He will shut doors that men cannot open. We are confident that our lives are in God’s hands and our life is in the Spirit that dwells within us. We believe that nothing can cut short our days or derail our destiny. As God has spoken so it shall be.
We have given God full possession of our hearts and our minds. We trust Him with our eternity. We believe today that He is faithful, He is loving, He is merciful and He is kind. We believe that God will fulfill His eternal purpose for our lives through the power of the Holy Spirit who dwells in us and to whom we give the freedom to have His way in our lives.
During this 10 days we have fasted and prayed to give God full possession of our hearts, our minds, our past and our future. Tomorrow, on Pentecost Sunday, we will meet together and end our fast by giving God full possession of our present, of this very moment in which we are living. We often spend so much of today trying to undue yesterday and to prepare for tomorrow that we completely miss the moment. We are going to concentrate on now, what God is saying, what God is doing, how God is pouring Himself out and what God is requiring from His people. I pray that our fast has made us empty of ourselves so that we are prepared to be more filled with the Holy Spirit than ever before.
