21 Day Fast | Day 3

21 Day VICTORY Fast | Day 3
From Pastor Brian Gibbs
January 6th, 2021

Good morning, dear friends! Today is day three as we have entered a very special time of consecration and humility and we open the door to a deeper, more intimate and more powerful relationship with our Father!

Bren and I are blessed that you have chosen to participate in the VICTORY FAST by setting aside 21 days to pray, fast and draw near to God. Fasting is not just an exercise for super-spiritual people. It is actually supposed to a part of every believer’s personal and private spiritual life. Personally, we have found there is no better way to reset our spiritual compass and bring about change and discipline in every area of our lives than through fasting.

We pray that you will experience the presence and power of God in an extraordinary way as you commit yourself to Him over the next 21 days. May God continue to bless you and ignite your passion for Him as you seek Him first!

For these 21 days together, I will provide a daily biblical focus and some thoughts to encourage and strengthen you throughout the fast.


Scripture Reading for today:
Romans 8:5 & Romans 12:1-2

Romans 8:5
“For those who live according to the flesh set their
minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live
according to the spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.”

Romans 12:1

“I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”

Romans 12:1 (from The Passion Translation)
“Beloved friends, what should be our proper response to God’s marvelous mercies? I encourage you to surrender yourselves to God to be his sacred, living sacrifices. And live in holiness, experiencing all that delights his heart. For this becomes your genuine expression of worship. Stop imitating the ideals and opinions of the culture around you, but be inwardly transformed by the Holy Spirit through a total reformation of how you think. This will empower you to discern God’s will as you live a beautiful life, satisfying and perfect in his eyes.”

Our consciousness to the abiding presence of God within us is what really determines our level of
consecration. As I said on our first day, fasting is not a religious duty but it is our spiritual worship and our love language. I believe in fasting we experience our heart being anchored to the reality that we are truly loved, chosen, called out and appointed first and foremost unto the Lord. We are set apart and consecrated unto Him.

Fasting has the extraordinary ability to fortify truth and causes our hearts to be yielded and surrendered to the Lord. I pray you are strengthened today as you fast and pray. I pray that the Holy Spirit reminds you continually that you’re consecrated unto The Father.
Remember that fasting is not a seasonal event —it is a lifestyle.

Make it a great day and be blessed!
