3 days into this series and I can see I forgot something. I needed to start with a disclaimer.
It may appear that what I am talking about at first has nothing to do with a fast from insecurity. But I can assure you it does. Remember what I said in day 1 about what the Lord spoke to me that one night:
If you will get a revelation of who you are because of who I am, your struggle with insecurity will be over.
So in order to receive the full benefits of this fast, I have to spend some time focusing on who Jesus is. And in turn, that opens the door to get a revelation of who I am.
And here is the real key. As I focus on the nature of Christ, I am fasting from insecurity. A true fast is abstaining from something, and that is what I am doing. I am abstaining from insecurity. Insecurity is really just a bunch of pride. So I must humble myself before Jesus and get my eyes off of me and on to him. This is like cleaning out the house and replacing it with something else (Luke 11:24-26).
These next few days will be a reflection on Christ’s character. And by studying His character, we will be getting free from insecurity.
Are you with me?
