Good Afternoon Everybody,
Our first seven days were about "Examine Yourself". Now, this week of fasting and prayer is about INCREASE. This is going to be an amazing and great year for you in Jesus' name. Can I get an amen! Believe that the things in Isaiah 58:6 will have no power over your spirit, soul, and body in 2020.
Make this confession over and over this year in 2020 - Isaiah 58:6
Loosed me from the bands of WICKEDNESS in Jesus' Name
Undone the heavy BURDENS in my life in Jesus' Name
Freed me from OPPRESSION in Jesus' Name
Broken every YOKE in my life in Jesus' Name
Hebrews 10:23 says, "Let us hold fast the CONFESSION of our faith (God's Word) without wavering; For God is FAITHFUL to His Word that He promised." Now let's get ready for a great INCREASE this year in 2020.
Key Scripture and Thought
"So then FAITH comes by HEARING, and HEARING by the WORD of God." (Romans 10:17)
Increase Number One - Increase in FAITH
Faith is the Word of God, and the Word of God is faith. The more you hear the Word of Faith, the more God's faith will INCREASE in your life this year. The word "hearing" means with the intent to SAY, BELIEVE, and DO what you are "hearing." "The disciples said unto Jesus, Lord INCREASE our faith. And Jesus said, If you had "faith" as a grain of mustard seed, you can say unto a mountain (problem) be removed, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you." (Matthew 17:19-20) Then Jesus gives His disciples a powerful revelation about what will help them not to fall into unbelief; it was PRAYER and FASTING.
Father, I thank you that the understanding that faith is the Word of God, and the Word of God is the Faith of God. I repent and ask forgiveness for not making the Word of Faith a priority in my life daily. I make a decision this year in 2020 to read, to hear, to study, to meditate, and to observe to do what I learn. God your Word (Faith) says that Jesus has been made unto me wisdom. Therefore when I read, hear, study, meditate, speak and do the Word, which is Faith, it will INCREASE from a mustard seed to GREAT FAITH in you God, and GREAT confidence when I speak and do the Word of Faith. For God, you have spoken, declared, and decreed, without Faith, which is Your Word, it is impossible to believe You God, My Father. Today and every day, I make a heartfelt decision to please You, Father God, and the only thing that pleases You is Faith, because Faith is the Word of God. Father, therefore, the year 2020, I will live, walk, and stand by Your Faith, which is Your Word. AMEN! I pray this in Jesus' name!
