Day 20 | February 3: Mountains Will Move

READ: Exodus 33:7-10

MEDITATE: The Israelites had been unfaithful to God; however, Moses goes to the “tent of meeting” and God is there, and meets with Moses. Despite the Israelites’ worship of an idol and false god, God accepts their contrite repentance and maintains his covenant with them.

PRAY: Lord, I sin and at times fall short of perfection, but I thank you for the grace you extend to me through Jesus Christ. Thank you for your continued presence and mercy. Will you move the mountains in my life for your glory?

Sermon notes

Fasting is a process for developing a deeper relationship with God by temporarily denying oneself something in order to better focus on Him (II Chronicles 20:3, Ezra 8:21, Matthew 6:16-18, Mathew 9:14-15, Luke 18:9-14). The Bible does not require fasting, but Scripture highly recommends it for the believer. Fasting is a way to demonstrate to God that we are passionate about a closer relationship with Him. It is not intended to punish our flesh or to serve as a dieting method for losing weight. Fasting is a spiritual practice exercised for the sole purpose of deepening our walk with God. 


Abstaining from food for a time is the most recognized fast in the Bible. There are a variety of food fasts. For instance, the Complete Fast excludes all foods and includes only liquids such as water and juices; the Daniel Fast or Selective Fast excludes meat, sweets, and bread, but includes water, juices, fruits and abstaining from any type of food during a certain period of the day like 6 am to 3 pm, or from sunup to sundown. 

You may also feel the need to refocus certain areas of life that are out of balance. For instance, you may choose to stop using social media or watching television during the fasting period. Once the fast concludes, you may want to gradually reintroduce it back into your life in a healthier way. This is often called a Soul Fast and is highly effective in combination with fasting food.

Ultimately, the type of fast you choose is between you and God.


Fasting and prayer are often linked together (Luke 2:37; 5:33). Prayer is our most common way to spend time with God, and since fasting is primarily about drawing closer to Him, it only makes sense that we would pray during the fasting period. As we pray to know God better, we can believe Him for specific needs to be met, questions to be answered, or decisions to be made. 

At North, our 21-day fast is to believe God for four distinct goals. We want:

  • a greater sense of God’s presence in our worship gatherings.
  • greater faith as we prepare for God’s future plans for North.
  • a greater number of salvations.
  • greater glory to be given to God.

Together, let’s go deeper in God, let’s believe God, and let’s watch God move mountains!

“I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”
Matthew 17:20
