To Recalibrate means, to make small changes to an instrument so that it measures accurately or to make changes to the way we think and do things for optimum living.

In a constantly changing, fast moving world it is necessary for us to constantly recalibrate so that we can stay on track with our desired purpose or destination.

 We all have to navigate external factors beyond our control, which require us to recalibrate the way we view and approach our world. 

 Everything that is left to itself will inevitably move from order to disorder, everything that is not continually recalibrated will tend to drift.

 Whether it’s our relationships, our vision, our mission, our culture or our values, drifting is a reality we all face.

 Our spiritual life is no different and times of prayer and fasting enable us to recalibrate our spiritual life.

 When Jesus found the disciples asleep in the Garden of Gethsemane in His hour of greatest need He said to them, “Watch and pray so that you will not fall into (be overtaken by) temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

 Jesus was saying, we need to watch and pray so that we can calibrate our lives to the Spirit of God rather than our human weakness. 

 The Author of Psalm 119 said, “I thought about my ways and turned my feet toward your instruction.”

 He recalibrated his life and turned himself towards God’s word and God’s way.

 Let’s follow his example in these 21 days of prayer and fasting. 21 days to recalibrate as we watch and pray!
