21 Days of Decrease – January 11-31, 2018
Are you ready to take the next step of faith? Are there things in your life that you know must go before you can reach where God is leading you? For 21 days we will focus on areas of our lives that must decrease so that the Holy Spirit may increase the life of Christ in our lives. Through the aid of the Holy Spirit and our cooperation the strongholds can be released from us. Let’s learn from the past the habits and patterns that were not productive. In this New Year reach for God like never before. Turn your back on the past and your face to God’s Word replacing daily each focus of decrease with the application of God’s Word. Join the Prayer Ministry and the church family in this time of prayer and fasting. Let’s see God move and stretch us in Him. I dare you to step out by faith!
“He must become greater; I must become less.” NIV
John Baker: “Life change is a process. It’s a decision followed by a process… If you have turned the change process over to God and have resolved to cooperate the best you can, God will work change in you through the power of His Holy Spirit.”
