Today we are focusing on: #30DayHusbandFast Rest and Review - Day 1
Yes you've made it! Yes you've got here!
It's been 4 weeks of fasting, prayer, digging deep into the word...and depending how you went about this, so much more!
You did it! Yes and Amen Lord! Yes and Amen (insert any congratulatory Holy Sprit led song you feel is appropriate ;-) )
...Buuut it's not quite over yet as there are still 2 days of the fast to go, I mean it is called the #30DayHusbandFast for a reason (and 4 x 7 is 28...you get my drift?!). But, unlike before where we were topic led, today and the next 2 days will be like an extended 'review period.'
So much like the 'Rest and Review' days from before you can review the past week, enter some deep contemplation about the fast overall and get some tips/pointers for some action taking going forward.
So today is a "Rest and Review" day aka "Overview" for Week Four - Opportunities. Today you may decide to press pause on the fasting, break your fast earlier than the time you set, or...just continue. It's up to you ;-)
What's really important though, is that even though we are at the end of fasting period you aren't just going through the motions to get through it all, but really taking time to review how this past week went and how you found it.
Some suggestions on reviewing this last week:
Ask yourself how did you find it?
Think about what you have learnt and/or how God may have spoken to you on a particular issue and journal/record this down in whatever way works best for you.
Then prayerfully consider how to take action on some of things you've learnt or are pondering.
If you have taken action, review how did that go?
Take time to pray over topics that really struck you or subjects you may want to revisit.
There may be topics you want to spend more time on in the next week, fasting for or not, either way go for it!
Overall just take this time to rest, reassess and then resume ;-) as tomorrow we shall be contemplating the past four weeks of this #30DayHusbandFast :-)
Reminder: For suggested devotionals and bible chapters for this past week, feel free to check out the Week Four overview here.
Have a restful day!
