1. Steps to Regaining Your Edge
Through the biblical story of the lost ax head, this chapter reveals six important steps to regaining your lost spiritual edge.
2. Extreme Makeover
God wants to give all of us an extreme makeover, which will include freedom from bondages or addictions, and restoration of our self-esteem and confidence—a total spiritual rejuvenation.
3. Develop a Pattern of Discipline
It takes discipline to allow God to complete the work of a total wardrobe makeover and to move from hurt, past shame, and unforgiveness to a new wardrobe of joy, mercy, grace, and forgiveness. Includes suggestions for a 21-day plan for fasting to regain your edge.
4. The Power of a Made-Up Mind
It also takes determination to keep your restored spiritual edge. Using the true story of a highly decorated Viet Nam vet sharpshooter who suddenly lost his edge at the very moment he should take aim and fire, we learn the importance of the phrase: “I had made up my mind before the battle.” Franklin talks about the importance of making up our mind to be victorious before we even engage in spiritual warfare.

Franklin lists some of the powerful benefits of committing to a long-term fast.
