We’re down to the last week of our month long fast.  If you were only able to stay with us so far…congratulations.  If you were able to do only a portion of the 30 day fast…good on you. This isn’t a competition. Remember, to stay the course.   It’s about you becoming closer to our Lord and Savior.  Continue to ask God to help you through this.  Continue to seek His counsel.

I hope you were able to read this month’s blogs.  Not only that, but I hope they resonated with you. They were designed to complement our 12 Things You Can Do To Strengthen Your Christian Walk. The intent is to stretch and strengthen you. While also challenging you to “Know what you know.”  We need Christians exhibiting Christian behavior in the neighborhoods, classrooms, offices and boardrooms.  Obviously, this doesn’t mean that you need to be pounding on your 10 pound bible and telling everyone they’re going to hell.  Rather, we need to show our Christian light so that we can expose the love of God to everyone.

This is going to be a good year for us.  Why?  Great question.  First, your studying, praying and meditating will help you draw ever closer to God and this will enable you to show your fruits. Second, we know that greater is He who is for us than all those who are against us (1 John 4:4, emphasis mine).  Plus we know that we are conquerors.  No, Scripture tells us that we are more than a conqueror (Rom 8:14).  This should encourage us when deal with our daily battles.  Last, your fasting, study, prayer, mediating and reliance on the Holy Spirit will empower and take you to heights you never would have imaged.  Stand mightily my friend.

Bless you
