A Set Time with God

January 6, 2018

There are special times set apart for the people of God. These set times are called a moed. The term moed means an appointed place, time, or season. Usually, a moed is used in conjunction with feast times or festivals in the Hebrew calendar. Beginning tomorrow I will begin a moed of prayer and fasting. This will be a 21-day set time for seeking God's plan for my life during this New Year. I know of many others who are observing this set time.

I have personal situations that I will be praying about and also corporate prayer requests. I am asking the Lord to heal my heart and help me to discipline my eating habits (I love chocolate and Krispy Kreme donuts!). I believe the fast will enable me to begin to get a handle on how to eat more healthy.

Corporately I am joining other Christians as we pray for a great spiritual awakening in America. Our nation is so divided and hatred is spilling over into almost every facet of life. We must have a move of God to sweep over and into the very fabric of our land. Fasting enables our prayer life to be more focused on the Lord. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14 Fasting is one of the ways we humble ourselves and seek the face of God.

This moed is ordained and so timely for me. I am desperate for a move of God in my life. You may be led by the Lord to join me during this moed. By the way, today I just had my last real meal at The Bright Star Restuarant in Bessemer!
