Genesis 18:22 (NKJV)
Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord.
Don’t hurry to leave church today.
Oh how quickly we depart to go back out into Sodom.
Tarry at the house of the Lord today.
If you are privileged to be called to a church where the pastor gives an invitation for people to come forward, respond. Go and stand before the Lord for a season.
This season of fasting is stopping what you’d normally be doing and spending more time with God so that what you will normally be doing after the fast will forever be the different.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, please forgive my tendency to rush off, to quickly leave your sacred place and head back out into the world. Search my heart oh God! Am I more comfortable out there than in your church? Am I speaking the language of Heaven with a Sodom accent? This must stop! I shall tarry in your house today. I shall not be in a hurry. Come, dear Lord, and meet with me there—at your House.
Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.
Luke 24:49 (NKJV)
