So I hope this post finds you all well!! I posted on my social media accounts about a week ago about doing a 21 day Release fast where we will eat healthy foods and release beliefs, experiences, and attitudes that limit God’s ability to move and operate in our lives. We will release things that counteract our faith and are directly contrary to the Word of God. I’d love for you to respond with whatever you’re releasing so I can agree with you in prayer. You can also read the affirmations and prayer below and agree with these too! I also plan to do a prayer call weekly. After it ends, there will be a book club reading Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero, a book that has been life-changing for me.
So 21 Days of Release kicks off today! If you’d like to join me, email me @ lifeinspiredbygod and I’ll add you to the mailing list. Without further ado, here goes!
Day 1: I release the need to control. I release the need for things to go my way. I release the need to know what things look like or what to expect. I also release the experiences that told me to expect the worst and influenced me to try and control the outcome instead of waiting on God.
Affirmation: God is in control. I trust God and know that as Proverbs 16:9 says, God establishes my steps and makes them sure. I trust that as Romans 8:28 says, all things will work together for my good. I trust that God is a good father and gives great gifts to His children. I trust that God will never leave me or forsake me. I uproot the root of control, instability in my childhood, trauma, and every other experience that caused me to not trust God and try to control situations and others to protect myself from pain. I trust God that He has a future and a hope ahead of me.
Prayer: Father, thank You for new life! Thank You for this time of releasing. Thank You that You love me so much, so much that You didn’t want to leave me as I was. I thank You for this time of growth and transformation. I thank You for this season of healing! Today, right now, I release control. I release needing to have everything figured out and wanting things to go my way. I release having to have everything planned out so meticulously that I leave no space for You to blow my mind. I release the memory of every event that told me I couldn’t trust anyone including You and that my way was best. I release the belief that with my intervention, I controlled the outcome. Today I affirm You are in control. I affirm I trust You. I trust Your will and Your plans. Jeremiah 29:11 says that Your plans for me are good, to give me a future and a hope, and are not for harm. I thank You for a clean slate and that today I walk in newness. I seek You first for the plans you have for me and I see Your guidance all around me. I surrender to You, Your timing and direction. I receive Your peace. In Jesus’ name, amen.
