LFC 21 Day Fast 2013
DAY 2…IT’S TIME TO TESTIFY!
January 8, 2013
Today is a great day to give God praise and to testify of His goodness. Here are three testimonials that I believe will encourage you and remind us all that God is truly an awesome God!
Testimony #1 …A Young Man’s Faith!
Dilan Foster, one of our STORM students from Elkins shared this story with me Sunday:
Yeah, my best friend has always been very religious and during football season he got 3 concussions. He plays every sport and doctors told him that he may not ever be able to play sports again. He was really upset and he told me that he was reading his Bible and he happened on the scripture that says, “Have the faith of a mustard seed.” He told me he prayed and when he got his CT scan results it came back clean and he got cleared to play sports again. He actually played the entire basketball game Friday night!
Testimony #2 …Ok, God.
I’ll Read Your Word!
My, son-in-law, Mike Haney, told me he was on his phone Sunday night after church, emailing some clients he trains and texting some others. He laid his phone down to do something else and when he came back and picked it up…..HIS YouVersion BIBLE APP WAS ON HIS SCREEN…that’s not all, AND IT WAS ALREADY ON THE FOLLOWING PASSAGE OF SCRIPTURE!
So he said, “Ok God. I’ll Read Your Word!-right now!
Here’s Mike’s text to me with this message:
“This helped me prepare for the days to come.”
“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’” Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.” (Matthew 4:1-11 NIV)
Testimony #3….GOD, OUR PROTECTOR
What an amazing weekend of services to jump start our fast. God showed up in amazing ways in both services with people accepting Christ and others rededicating their life to Him. We saw people healed and heard testimonies of others being healed. THERE IS A GREAT HUNGER AMONG THE PEOPLE OF GOD at LFC!
After service and a meal with my family, I settled into my bed to write the first day’s blog post. I finished about 11:40 p.m. and snuck into the fridge to get one last helping of Ice Cream before midnight struck! Sis. Beth was asleep and I was laying there eating my ice cream when everything changed for us in a second…..I smelled something burning in our house and it was getting stronger! I woke Beth up and we scrambled around trying to find out what was burning. My son, Jonathan helped me look all over the house and outside–we couldn’t find anything but the smoldering smell stronger and now a haze was forming.
Below is my Facebook post after our call to 911 and calling our girls to help us pray, God please spare our home from fire!
