21 Day | Day 6

21 Day VICTORY Fast | Day 6
From Pastor Brian Gibbs
January 9th, 2021

Good morning, dear friends! Today is day six 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.


Day 6

The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Thessalonians 5:17, “Pray without ceasing.” Years ago, I learned a secret about fasting — fasting is unceasing and unbroken prayer.

Yesterday, I shared about David in Psalm 63 how he declared, “my heart and my flesh cry out for God”. When we fast, our bodies are crying out and aching for nourishment. David identified that even our flesh craves and longs for God. And if our flesh can

long for God, it is very important to understand we can be completely satisfied by Him.
The heart of fasting is a total dependency on God. We need to come to the place experientially that we really know, “Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.” Do you remember when Jesus said this? It was during His 40 day fast in the wilderness when he was tempted by the devil.

The secret in fasting is that your body — which is the tabernacle of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19), becomes a vessel of unceasing prayer. When your mouth is not moving and your lips are not praying, your body is aching through the fast becoming a continual living sacrifice of worship unto God — that becomes unceasing prayer.

Fasting and prayer coupled together is what releases greater power of the Holy Spirit in and through our lives. Unfortunately, in American church culture, there tends to be very little preached or discussed about fasting. But there has

always been a remnant. The Holy Spirit is inviting the church at large into a lifestyle and legacy of prayer and fasting for sustainable and supernatural victory.

Thank you for answering the call. May the Holy Spirit strengthen and nourish you today.
Make it a great day and be blessed!
