This is always a favorite time of the New Year.
“Fasting can serve as a powerful time to develop our faith so we believe God and His Word with our whole heart. Not just head knowledge. But heart knowledge. We want to get to the point that we know that we know that we know. Fully convinced that we’ve received from God even before the fulfillment is tangible. This is a work of our faith. And sometimes our faith muscles need to be strengthened so we can believe with no doubt in our hearts.” The Daniel Fast
“The Daniel Fast is a partial fast, where some foods are eaten and others are restricted. So we do need to give some attention to what we eat. But keep your meals simple. Don’t spend so much time preparing what some call, “delicious and satisfying Daniel Fast meals.” Delicious to what? Satisfying to what? The flesh! And then you miss out on what the Spirit of God has for you.
The Bible defines fasting as, “restricting food for a spiritual purpose.” Please read those words carefully and let them soak into your consciousness. Let the Spirit call you to this power spiritual discipline so God can reveal to you truths, insights, and blessings. And don’t sabotage yourself by making the Daniel Fast about the food rather than about faith!”
