21 Day Fast | Day 10

21 Day VICTORY Fast | Day 10
From Pastor Brian Gibbs
January 13th, 2021

Good morning, dear friends! Today is day ten 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 10

“The tempter came to him and said, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
(Matthew 4:3)

Isn’t it interesting, that the devil, of all things, tempted Jesus at the end of His fast trying to provoke Him to turn stones into bread? Of course we know that Jesus had the power to do so, however, don’t miss this powerful and practical point—Jesus came to use His power to serve others, not Himself. Jesus was determined to finish His fast strong because he had an appetite for
victory—our victory!

When Jesus returned from His 40 day fast, immediately, He began to do “mighty miracles,
healing all who are oppressed by the devil” (Acts 10:38). The enemy was scheming his very best to
seduce Jesus to get focused on His own need, because He knew that Jesus was going to receive the power of the Holy Spirit that was going to change and transform the world!

The devil always comes with an appetite for destruction only to steal, kill and destroy you (John
10:10). Jesus had an appetite for complete victory—He was looking ahead knowing His
breakthrough would become our breakthrough, and His triumph would become our triumph. I have learned, and I continue to learn, that our personal breakthroughs are not just about us—in God’s wisdom, they are always connected to others. In fact, the anointing on our lives is not just for us, but it has always been about others being set free.

In your fast, may your appetite for complete victory increase. See yourself flowing in the power of the Holy Spirit helping others to breakthrough into new realms of God’s authority over the enemy! May God strengthen and nourish you today.

“For everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world—our [continuing, persistent] faith [in Jesus the Son of God].” (1 John 5:4)

Make it a great day and be blessed!
