This month I am doing the Daniel Fast. I have really decided to run after God and do all I can to glorify his name. I’m at the end of my first week of the Fast and I can tell you the enemy has tried to attack me in all directions but I’m standing firm and not letting my sinful flesh get what it wants. My goal is to get closer to God, Hear from God, Learn from God, and take control of my body and mind. During this journey I’m only eating fruits and vegetables for 21 days. I have also given up playing my x-box , play station or any gaming systems. I spend my free time in church or reading the bible (scriptures) and listening to gospel/christian music or pod cast only during this time. I have already experienced some unexpected blessing through the prayers that I have sent up to the heavens. If you have never done a fast before I would suggest that you implement this in your life because it helps you with peace, discernment, discipline, answers, and faith. I have always worked out and trained my body hard so that I could stay fit. However, during this time all my time is spent building my spirit man and my spiritual muscle. I can’t say that this is easy but probably one of the hardest things I have decided to do in 2017.
In these 7 days of my fast all types of fiery arrows have been shot towards me but because of this scripture I am covered:
Ephesians 6:10- 17 ( The Armor of God) – NIV bible
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
I will be victorious with the rest of my life because I have truly learned how to put and keep God first. I believe i’m turning a corner in my life that involves God and understanding his plan for me. Thank you so much for reading my post and God Bless You. I will fill you in with my process next Friday.
In Jesus Name,
