This is the last day of the 2nd corporate 40-day fast we will be undertaking in 2020. The focus of this fast was to train us to become disciplined in our lives so we could Hear God’s Voice clearly. This was to be a time to be trained and strengthened to not be moved by the distractions of this world. When I wrote that on February 29 I had no idea that the entire world was about to be tested with the greatest world-wide distraction there has ever been.
God is wanting to get the attention of the whole world, to see Him for who He is and listen to His voice, so we will be changed into His image, having His heart and His character. In this blog, many aspects of God’s voice were shared. God desires us to hear His voice calling us to: walk in holiness, dwell in His presence, silence the voice of fear, surrender, have Joy, gain insight and understanding in His Word, receive and give out love, change, listen to His instructions, let Him mold us into His image, praise, repent, receive His embrace, receive and be a light in the darkness, obey Him, walk in His Ways, rejoice, know His heart, return to Him, humble ourselves, and separate from the world.
Sometimes God was like a roaring lion, sometimes He came as the Father of Lights, and sometimes He spoke with a comforting embrace; yet at all times He spoke to us with peace and wisdom.
Every nation is being tested in the exact same way. Last night we received prayer requests from 23 nations. Every single one had the same concerns: wisdom for their governments, obedience for citizens to stay at home, loss of jobs, their country’s economy, healing for people who are sick, protection for healthcare workers.
But the one reoccurring theme I loved were the requests for the church to awaken in confidence and take their position as lights to their nation. The only way we can do this is to be at peace with what God is doing, trusting Him and His ways. Then we will be disciplined to Hear His Voice!
I urge you to gather with your family and truly pray for your family, city, nation, and people all over the world. Let God speak to you and lead you in what to pray. He has much on His heart, will we take the time to settle ourselves to hear His voice.
