Jesus has promised to increase our congregation battle strength where one can chase a thousand, and two can chase ten thousand (Deut. 32:30). I am very excited in believing that Jesus will remove all blindness, laziness, pettiness, pride, and foolishness from our countenance, our hearts and our speech.
To wit: I am calling for a permanent fast from anger and proven poor decisions. Included you will take seven days and record the mistakes of pettiness, laziness, anger, disobedience, pride, intellectual blindness, and foolishness that you have made over the past seven to forty years.
Purchase a notebook that you will label, “THE ONE-HUNDRED FOLD WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING BOOK.”
Write in the book your mistakes over the past seven to forty years, (you may elect to keep this book personal, or you may choose to use a code, do not expose your enemies to your sins and open wounds). Of course, you can simply start a file on your phone or IPad. Then every day spend at least seven minutes recounting the tragedy and pain of those acts of blindness, ignorance, anger, disobedience, pettiness, laziness, and pride.
Remember to get wisdom, but in “…all thy getting get understanding.” (Prov. 4:7)
Surely you will notice within a few days an increase in favor, character, blessings, treasure, and professional success.
