TAG MINISTRIES, INTERNATIONAL
INTRODUCTION TO 40-DAY FAST
During the first quarter of each year, the TAG family participates in a 40 day fast. Sometimes we fast from food, or liquids or entertainment or favorite things or even a combination of these things throughout the 40-day period. I have found that the fast we participated in last year was most effective because it is what governs our life. What is it? It is our thoughts or better yet, our stinkin' thinkin'. Pastor Gregory Dickow has started his Fast from Wrong Thinking again and I want us to participate in it. If you are already participating in his fast then all the better. Pastor Dickow's ministry is on Day 2 but I want to wait and start OUR fast on March 1, 2009.
Please prepare your hearts to persevere through this 40-day fast from stinkin' thinkin'. I will be going before the Lord asking Him for a specific word for our TAG family as it relates to the messages that Pastor Dickow has archived for the 40 days.
Remember, this will be a fast from stinkin' thinkin' NOT a food or drink fast. We will be addressing those thoughts that cause us to remain unsuccessful and unfruitful in our every day lives.
I am asking each of you to meditate on the following passages as I will be teaching lessons on these passages throughout the 40 days along with the daily inspirational messages from Pastor Gregory Dickow's 40-day fast archives. Take some time to read:
I want you to notice that there is reference to an “animal” that recurs in these three passages. Can anyone tell me what it is? Note: it is obvious in Matthew and Judges but not as obvious in the passage in John.
Well, these and similar passages will be our points of reference as we go through the 40-Day Fast from STINKIN’ THINKIN’.
I look forward to growing with you as we put off the old way of thinking and put on the mind of Christ.
