7 Day Fast | UNTO THE LORD | Day 5

7 Day Fast | UNTO THE LORD | DAY 5
From Brian Gibbs
January 13, 2022
Good morning, dear friends.  Today is day four as we have entered a very special time of consecration, humility and opening the door to a deeper, more intimate and powerful relationship with JESUS! Our desire is to possess hearts that are fully set apart Unto The Lord. We hunger and thirst for deeper intimacy, heart to heart union and a more powerful relationship with JESUS.
Bren and I are blessed that you have chosen to participate in “UNTO THE LORD” by setting aside 7 days to pray, fast and draw nearer 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 and recalibrate our spiritual compass, as well as 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 Jesus in an extraordinary way as you commit yourself to Him over the next 7 days. May God continue to bless you and ignite your passion for Him as you seek Him first.
Happy New Year 2022!


Joshua 3:3-4  “...and they commanded the people, saying, ‘When you see the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God, and the priests, the Levites, bearing it, then you shall set out from your place and go after it. Yet, there shall be a space between you and it, about two thousand cubits by measure. Do not come near it, that you may know the way by which you must go, for you have not passed this way before.’”

I’ve always loved the prophetic wording in this passage, because it reveals the awe and wonder of what is sacred, and that His Presence will lead us in a new way—places we have never been before. For the pioneers and those with the blood of explores running through their veins —these are good words.
Without a doubt—with all the upheaval and chaos we have seen globally and throughout our beloved America, I believe the Holy Spirit will lead us, His Church, in new, glorious and profound ways in these last days before the return of our King.

God loves adventures, and He invites us all to follow Him on the epic journey into of His heart. Along the way we discover destiny and the privilege of serving others. Fasting not only sanctifies us unto the Lord, it prepares you for what’s ahead—the things God has prepared and appointed for you. He wants a prepared man and woman walking into prepared assignments and blessings. Let me say that again, just in case you read that too quickly. He wants a prepared man and woman walking into prepared assignments and blessings. Just as the children of Israel watched the ark, He desires us to watch Him with sacred honor and follow His leading and promptings.

John 10:27 “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.”

There is no distance between us and His presence, because He now dwells and abides within. We have become the ark of His glory. We are conscious and aware of His holiness, and we are consecrated and sanctified just like the children of Israel… We are set apart unto the Lord, and we are to be directed and led by His voice.

I want to encourage all of you, God is preparing you for a new way and a new adventure, and He is getting you ready for what He has prepared just ahead. Believe it. Receive it. Declare it.

Feast on the Lord today—the Living Bread, the Bread that came down from Heaven! “...Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.” —Matthew 4:4

Keep all your worship and affections set upon the Lord today. Focus on His heart and love. May the Holy Spirit strengthen you and nourish you. This fast is important—you my, dear friend, are important.
I call you, chosen. Set apart. Consecrated. He will lead us into a new way.

Make it a great day and be blessed!
