our declaration

Our church, along with MANY others are participating in a consecration fast for our nation. Watchmen for the Nations has been sending out devotionals for kids that we have been using every evening to help ourselves and our children understand what this thing is all about. So far we have contemplated the Levites and their choice to choose to follow God, Shadrach, Meschach and Abednago and their stand for what's right in the midst of opposition and Daniel's desire to separate himself from the 'worldly' standards and do what was right in the eyes of the Lord. The latter two examples both took their stand saying that even if God did not choose to save them from death they would trust him anyway.

We talked about the testing of our faith in our family. We chose to agree together to trust God for the sale of our house before the end of this fasting period and that even if He doesn't we choose to trust Him anyway. This is our declaration.
