Ellul week 5: of our Walls of Jericho fast – don’t grow weary …
By Les’a Cole
Each week, we are seeing YHVH move. Sometimes with large miracles, other times, smaller.
There are only two weeks left of this Walls of Jericho fast. Let’s continue believing for God Himself to break thru those walls of seeming impossibility.
“Let’s not grow weary of well-doing! “Let’s not get tired of doing what is good, for at the right time we will reap a harvest—if we do not give up,” Gal 6:9 Int’l Standard Version. . …. Let’s continue believing for those miracles that only God Himself can perform.
What is this month of Elul?
This is the time to think about our relationship with the Creator.
Is our walk such that He can really use us??
Beginning tomorrow, Yom Kippur is only 15 days away. Let us not forget that this is the season of reflection, repentance, and drawing closer to our LORD [YHVH], and for readying ourselves spiritually for His holy days. Are we ready? Are we prepared to come face to face with our Creator?
For many of us, our fasting began on the first of Elul, 23 days ago. We have been asking the LORD for breakthroughs: for us, for our loved ones, for our country, for our congregation. We each need to be watchful for not just major breakthroughs but also for little ones … He is moving! (I encourage you don’t let circumstances weaken your resolve to continue this fast.)
Are we ready?
Are we ready to not only fast for others, are also we ready to let go of those hidden things that the LORD has been speaking to us about? Are we willing to put those things aside so His light shine through us?
Colossians 1:11 ESV “being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy”… “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer,” Romans 12:12 NIV.
Yes, YHVH will strengthen us with His might, as we are faithful in prayer and joyful in hope and patient.
“Mighty God! Thank You for Your miracles this week! We surrender those secret things You’ve been wanting us to give to You. We bring these before the altar. Our greatest desire is to glorify You in all we do – in every reaction in traffic, in each difficult situation we encounter on the phone or in a store. Help us to remember You before we react. Mold us in Your image. We ask that You break these walls of seeming impossibility … for Your glory! We ask that You halt the divisiveness in our country and in Israel. Bring righteous leaders to power. Bring Your divine peace to Israel and to the US. In the holy Name of our Messiah, b’shem Yeshua. Amen.”
IMMEDIATE Prayer Requests:
- USA: Wisdom for our leadership, their health, and their direction. Prayer for their safety.
- Prayer for total healing for Tere, Larry, Connie. Plus all who are struggling physically.
