Don’t stress the small things. If God can take care of something as big as our sin, everything else is a piece of cake.
Father, You indicate in Scripture that the righteous live by faith; and if he shrinks back, You will take no pleasure in him.* When we live by faith we find inner joy and lasting hope from Your promises, not only those already fulfilled but those yet to come. At the end of our earthly existence You promise to end our sufferings and to receive us unto Yourself, rewarding our faithfulness by giving to us a crown of life. We must press on, ever persevering, to win the prize of the high calling which we have received through Christ Jesus our Lord. With the prize clear before our eyes, Lord, we will find the strength to press on and not shrink back. Amen.

Fasting is to go without food — usually — for a prolonged period of time. It’s a way to devote yourself to God for a time of prayer. There may be an intensifying of prayer.
Maybe it would be good to fast your past. Let go of the failures and don’t believe you have to continue in them. Fast your successes; don’t rest on your laurels. Don’t hang on to your hurts. Let it go.
God is definitely about moving forward. Many people are crippled by the past. They’ve lost their vibrancy, their joy, their zest for life. Don’t be one of them.

God’s divine plan for us is to live triumphantly in Christ Jesus. The word “triumph” doesn’t just mean victory, but a great or important victory; notable success or achievement. It also means to prevail. It’s the successful ending of a struggle or contest.
There’re certain important points to note in the opening verse. First, is the phrase, “…always causes us to triumph in Christ….” Thus, it’s God’s desire to divinely position you to have great and important victories, notable successes, or achievements always— not sometimes. This is your life-time heritage in Christ Jesus; it makes no difference what happens, where you find yourself, or who’s against you; God has made you triumphant!
In Christ, we don’t pray to be victorious…
