21 Day Fast | Day 14

21 Day VICTORY Fast | Day 14
From Pastor Brian Gibbs
January 17th, 2021

Good morning, dear friends! Today is day fourteen 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.


(Read John 4:1-42)
“My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.”

I love the interaction of Jesus and his disciples in this chapter. Their appetite was on one frequency, and His was tuned into the Father’s intensions. Jesus told his disciples that “He had food to eat that they didn’t know about.” From what I can tell, after studying the Greek deeply in this passage, Jesus wasn’t hiding a Snickers candy bar in His sash for extended ministry times to hold Himself over.

As the disciples were trying to figure out who had brought Him food, He told them the secret — “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me, and to finish His work.” Jesus was drawing strength and nourishment that sustained Him, because His mission was to fulfill the Father’s desires.

Nothing will nourish our lives like living in the will of God and accomplishing His purposes and desires. The will of God will feed you and sustain you —carrying you forward through any and all
circumstances. Like Jesus, we too can tap into the secret resources and find the pleasure of doing the work of our Father.

“...Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”
(Matthew 4:4)

Intimacy with the Father can build up a storehouse of strength and power that can sustain us and keep us moving forward through any difficult situation or circumstance. We can draw forth from the intimacy we share with Father that will feed us and others — carrying us onward. Christ in us is the true strength and power of our lives.

Make it a great day and be blessed!
