Day 21: Well Done!

By Pastor Heidi  (February 6, 2021)

You are allmost there! I feel like we deserve a “hype video”… You know, one of those short clips they show before large sporting events to get the crowd really excited. “They thought you couldn’t do it, you thought you couldn’t do it , but here you are, you have done it! You put your God first! You were obedient!”

Cue the music! (Chariots of Fire or Rocky or David Foster’s Olympic theme… HA can you hear it?)

While this is a silly train of thought, consider this: Who was your biggest fan when you were playing hockey or soccer, or doing piano recitals or speech competitions, or entering art contests? Your parents – and God is our heavenly Father!

1 John 3:1 says, “See what great love the Father has lavished on us that we should be called children of God. And that is what we are!” We are the children of God! And he loves us!

So yes, I believe that the heavenly Father, our Abba, our Daddy God, is cheering us on and proud of our obedience.

Even if you didn’t have the perfect record this fast, not one of us is without sin. God’s mercy and grace are ours if we ask.

God’s spirit will convict us and lead us to repentance and a restored relationship with Him but it will never drive us away. That is the work of the enemy of our souls. Shame is not in God’s repertoire.

So, go ahead and do that celebration dance because it’s day 21! You’ve got this because God’s got you!


God I thank you today for the strength you’ve given me during this time of fasting. Help me to see the new growth and change in my life.
