Every so often it is good to take time out of our busy schedule to fast, pray and reflect on our walk with God and a reminder of His love towards us. It is imperative that as Christians, this is a habitual practice as it will help us to keep aligned with God’s will, address and remove any little foxes we might have let into our lives that becomes detrimental.
The practice of fasting, praying and reflection is a discipline that every Christian is encouraged to embrace especially in our society today, where everything and everyone is calling for our attention. It is important to be intentional about putting all aside to spend quality time with God; at a much deeper level than we do on a daily basis. In our collective experience, the aftermath of having a time of reflection is usually a deeper, clearer and stronger desire, knowledge and appreciation of who God is. We simply never go back to the way we were before.
The free resource REFLECTIONS encourages the discipline of taking time out to focus solely on God, filling our hearts and lives with His word, getting renewed in spirit, strength and faith, and re-aligning ourselves to His will. Sometimes the busyness of life is like the rudder of a ship, and it gently takes us off course without us being aware, and only by taking stock regularly, can we truly know if we are going in the right direction or otherwise.
God knew the danger of unconsciously straying from the faith and that’s why He warns us in 2 Corinthians 13:5 “Examine and test and evaluate your own selves to see whether you are holding to your faith and showing the proper fruits of it. Test and prove yourselves [not Christ]. Do you not yourselves realize and know [thoroughly by an ever-increasing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you—unless you are [counterfeits] disapproved on trial and rejected?”
So come along with us as we embark on a season of spending private and quality time with God. We invite you to take time out of your day, read the word of God, meditating and praying it into your lives. We know that every time spent with God is quality time, one that will enrich and beautify your lives immensely.
As you pick up this book today, we pray that the Blood of Jesus Christ will purge and cleanse every ‘little fox’ that you might have let loose your lives. We pray that your time spent with God as you read is rewarded greatly. At the end of it all, may you have a deeper, more profound vision, understanding, love and insight into who your Father truly is. He loves you and is waiting to spend some quality time with you.
Are you ready? Well then, let’s go…!
