40 Days of Focus: Day 24
Day 24: Longing For God
Reflect On: Psalm 42
“As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God.”
Psalm 42 reminds us of what it means to truly long for God’s presence. When our thirst for God has lessened, fasting is a great way to re-establish our soul’s greatest need.
When we fast we long for the thing that we are surrendering. This longing for the thing we have given up is sometimes the only longing a person experiences. But for those who understand the true nature of fasting, this fleshly longing is replaced with a spiritual longing for more of God. We can ask God to fill to empty place that our fasting has created with something much more valuable and beneficial… the Holy Spirit. His presence can become more important than anything else.
Ask God for nothing less than to see His face today. May your longing to see His face be satisfied!
What is a Faith Promise? Glad you asked!
Just as a missionary is called to the mission field so also are those who partner with them through regular prayers and gifts. A Faith Promise is the amount of money a ministry partner promises to give to a ministry out of obedience to the leading of Holy Spirit. It is an amount of money missionaries can count on each month from a specific ministry partner. Missionaries like us cannot step onto the mission field of their calling without the faith promises of God’s people who partner to send them. Missionaries cannot go without being sent!
