I love an ice-cold Coke. Pop the top, and it has lots of fizz! Have you ever drank a canned Coke after the top has been off for a while, and it has gone flat? There is no fizz! Just Gross. We expect the fizz when we open up a carbonated drink, don’t we? We expect the fizz every time!
Passionate Christianity should be the norm for every believer—not the exception!
We would never settle for a flat Coke that has lost its fizz. Likewise, we should never settle for a stale, mundane, dull, boring relationship with God. Are you vaguely unsettled with the idea that somehow a daily relationship with God…the God of the universe…can end up flat?
Begin again today with a John 10:10 passionate, expectation of abundance! Don’t settle! Guarding the passion in your heart is the most foundational discipline of your life. Refuse to accept a faith experience that is so far below what God intended for you.
As you complete the first week of your 21 day praying and fasting, make sure you are writing down the things that God is speaking to you. Continue to pray fervently for the main concerns in your life. Trust God to bring an answer as you write your thoughts and inspirations through this time.
