The Adventures of Fly Exterminations

40 day election fast

Hello! I have not dropped off from the face of the earth! I have missed you! But I have been so busy – it’s almost like at the turn of 2014 God said “Ready? Set? Go!”

In my last post I had discussed about what calling God had possibly been stirring in your heart to do for Him in His Kingdom. I hadn’t mentioned mine yet.
For three years He has laid on my heart to start a national day of fasting and prayer. But you know the old tale, “Me? Nah. I’m imagining things. I’m a nobody and to do something of a national magnitude? Pfft! Move on!”  But the burning desire got greater and I have started it. And now it’s like He has pulled me by the hand and said, “Come. Lets’ do this!”

He has so many plans and is already moving in a great way. He has led me to pull South African Christians together for 40 days of fasting for the country before our elections in May. He has already sent me warriors to join in – each person fasts for a day in that 40 day run. Why 40? It comes back to old Beelzebub. The Pharisees in Matthew 12 were accusing Jesus of being Beelzebub whose demonic name literally means “lord of the flies”. To ensure that an infestation of flies is properly exterminated, you have to spray pesticides for 40 consecutive days. If you don’t spray for the full forty days, you only destroy the existing generation, but the next generation breeds on! So, if we enter into 40 days of fasting and prayer for the country before the elections, we are going to break the bondages over our lives here, as well as for our next generation!

And He’s already working – that South African version of Haman I told you about is already facing charges of fraud which is highly minimising his chances of running politically! Praise God!
I have also just been featured on a South African Christian website here.

So things are moving fast. Please keep me in your prayers that I always follow His direction and don’t go off on my own tangent. Waiting to hear about all your 2014 God-driven adventures!
