Negativity Fast

Pastor Jeff has challenged us to a 40-Day Negativity Fast from October 17-November 25. You can buy Steve & Wendy Backlund's book Igniting Faith in 40 Days on Amazon or the iBethel Store.

What a Negativity Fast is NOT:

  1. It is not denying that problems exist.
  2. It is not stuffing things that are wrong.
  3. It is not critical of others who may be struggling.
  4. It is not irresponsible concerning things that need to be done.

What a Negativity Fast IS:

  1. It is determining to focus more on God's promises than on problems.
  2. It is learning to speak with hope about even the toughest of issues.
  3. It is becoming solution focused rather than problem focused.
  4. It is refraining from reacting and given voice to pessimism, criticism of others, self -criticism and other forms of unbelief.
  5. It is speaking about problems to the right people in the right way.
  6. It is replacing negative words and thoughts with positive words and thoughts based on the promises of God.
