Faithfulness with FastingLeave a Comment
“You can make many plans, but the Lord’s purpose will prevail.” ~ Proverbs 19:21 NLT.
We are to be faithful to God because He is faithful to us. He has a purpose for our lives and His purpose will come about. The word says that we are to follow His example and His example was Christ on earth. Christ did as the Father spoke.
Over a week ago, I started a 21-day fast. Fasting is not an easy task because it is intentional. We are to fast and pray. Fasting without praying is just a diet and that is not focused on God. When God asks you to give something up, it is usually because He sees that it has more of a priority in your life then He does. For me it has been mindless television/movies and carbohydrates. I know that sounds silly but they have been major crutches for me.
