Day 19 | Repentance
Hello friends! For those of you who aren't able to follow along in the book at this time, we don't want you to miss this. Today's devotional is called "Repenting From or Repenting To." The word repent means:
Re – Again, anew, back or backward
Pent – the highest place (as in penthouse)
Therefore, repentance means to go back to the highest place of thinking. It's about more than seeking forgiveness; it is to go higher in our thinking. To turn from one course of thinking to another. At this point in the fast, some may be discouraged - we are almost halfway through. If that's you, we want to just impart vision to you today. Rather than trying to avoid negative thinking, how are you sowing into your future with your declarations. What different direction or course of thinking are you choosing.
Take a minute to ask yourself, "What am I repenting TO - not only from?"
When I remove the negative thinking of "can'ts, comparisons, shoulds, etc.," what brilliant thoughts will take their place?
Take a moment to remember why you are doing this.
Lastly, be encouraged, more is happening in you than you realize.
Bless you on your journey! Keep going strong.
