Day 1 – FOTS 2015

“We must have a revelation of our identity as new creatures; a new race of beings, born of the Spirit. If we can become more aware of this part of ourselves and allow it to have a voice, then perhaps we will actually see what walking in the Spirit can look like.”
– Wendy Backlund

Hello, 
Welcome to 27 days of feasting on the things of the Spirit. I am so glad you have joined The Feast! I am passionate about becoming more aware of the things of the Spirit and recognizing that I am more spirit than flesh. Romans 12:2 says, "We are transformed by renewing our minds.” So take this month to transform your life by renewing your mind with who God says you are. Focus on what you can do through Him. Your mind has been trained to view life from the perspective of your past and as mere mortals. It is up to you to train your brain to see life from the perspective of the Spirit and view yourself as a resurrected being.

Every Monday you will receive a short video teaching from me. Tuesday through Friday, you will receive emails with declarations and beliefs for you to meditate on, passionately speak out and saturate yourself in. I believe that declarations are powerful. Proverbs 18:21 says, “Life and death are in the power of the tongue." What you speak is important, so partner with God and declare the promises over your life. 2nd Peter 1:4a says that it’s through the promises that you become "partakers of the divine nature." Faith comes by hearing (Romans 10:17), so when you speak life, you hear it, and have faith to believe it. The goal is to get these new beliefs into the very cells of your body, emotions, and the spirit of your mind.

On Saturday mornings, you will receive an activation that challenges you to write and speak your own declarations using language that stirs you emotionally and spiritually. I'll also send you a journal prompt to write and mediate on over the weekend. As you declare these truths over your life, I believe you will begin to see your life transform.

I would love to hear praise reports and testimonies of your journey! Please share your testimonies by clicking here. Also click here to join the Feasting On The Spirit 2015 Facebook event, to connect with fellow Feasters, and share what the Lord is doing in your life! We are blessed to offer Feasting On The Spirit free of charge. 

I bless you with encounters and revelations during this Feast. May your eyes and ears be open to the Spirit like never before. May hope and joy overtake you and transform you this month!

Blessings on your journey,

Wendy Backlund
