#Discourse: How To Make Effective Use of a Fast

Fasting is one of the most beautiful exercises of the christian life because it makes your spiritual senses razor sharp, you begin to see things and everything begins to connect. But it is also possible that none of these happens and you basically just went on a hunger strike. And really there’s nothing more sad or pathetic than that: going hungry for no reason.

#TheFestivalDiaries #TheFestivalFinale: Petra Christian Centre’s The Festival at Landmark|| Healings + Deliverance = God’s Free Gifts

The Festival Petra Christian Centre

IBK’s spontaneous gospel rendition reminded me of Vashawn Mitchell’s ‘Nobody Greater’. I was hooked by the line ‘Every time we think of you, our heart’s begin to worship’. I feel like IBK’s song was very climatic, with its chord progression plus the anointing of the spirit…duh! It was so amazing he needed no backups, with the bass guitar and drums wowing us. He was superb in his singular spirited rendition with its yoruba-esque tinge I could go on and on about how much I loved it, but #WeMove

#TheFestivalDiaries: Following the Nudgings of the Spirit| Musings and Meredith Andrews

Petra Christian Centre

Meredith Andrews ‘ Spirit of The Living God’ with its simple and sweet melody captures how much we desire a supply of God’s spirit.

 

We have been praying for a supply of the spirit in the course of this fast, but it’s not enough for that supply to be there. We need to be alert to the instructions the Holy Spirit has for us which would of course be in line with His move.

 

The nudgings of the spirit are not always dramatic. It could just be a feeling or a vision places in our mind’s eye as we go about the tasks he assigns to us.

 

It’s really something special, but it is also simply how he leads us in our everyday lives.

 

We must however realise that his leadership over us is based on our continual study of his word and communion with him through prayer

The surest way he leads is by his word which registers in our spirits

 

Heeding to the nudgings of the Holy Spirit is an art that is perfected on the job. It takes a lot of practice, so we should not beat ourselves up even when we interpret His instructions wrongly.

 

 

Have a great day😊😊😊
