Now that school is back in session and our summer vacations are over, it’s time for us to settle back into a solid routine for the fall season. This means giving ourselves even more fully to the spiritual disciplines that cause us to be strong in our faith. I have declared that the next four months of 2014 will be the best four months of our lives, full of productivity and promise in Christ. I believe that God is going to shower unprecedented blessings on His people, resurrecting dreams that seemed to have no hope of fulfillment. We are going to go higher than we ever imagined because our season is now!
Therefore, it is important for us to be sensitive to the move of God that is right on the horizon and prepare ourselves accordingly. Just as Joshua told the people in Joshua 3:5 “…Sanctify yourselves: for tomorrow the LORD will do wonders among you.” so I am calling our congregation to a period of consecration in preparation for the great things that God is about to do in our midst. Beginning on September 24 thru October 3, I am calling the church to a ten-day period of fasting and prayer. During this time we will only consume fruit, vegetables, fish and water.
Additionally, we will pray strategically during and after the ten day fast, continuing through the entire Fall Season which will coincide with several of the Holy Days on the Jewish Calendar, Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and the Feast of Tabernacles. Over the next few weeks at TNT we will be teaching on the significance of these Holy Days for followers of Christ. Make sure you attend TNT each week.
Finally, as part of the Fall Consecration, starting on Tuesday, September 23, meet me in the sanctuary at 6:00 for a time of corporate prayer. TNT will follow immediately after. To accommodate the change the Life Café will be open 30 minutes earlier.
I hope you are excited about our Fall Consecration because we are about to witness miracles and breakthroughs like never before.
