Day Twelve - 21 Day Fast, January 20, 2017

Hello fellow fasters!  We are almost thru our second week and our 12th day of our annual 21 day fast.  Be encouraged!  Fasting has such amazing benefits.  Not only does it draw you closer to God and make your more sensitive to His voice, it can also help you get a fresh perspective on things, and it boosts your health!

Often we can learn to replace a negative habit with a positive one thru fasting.  Scientists say it takes 21 days to develop a new habit.  Has anyone got to the end of the 21 day fast and thought “I could continue this”?  Believe it or not, I have.  That’s because it takes 21 days to develop that new habit!  How interesting!

Day Nine – 21 Day Fast, January 17, 2017

James 4:8 tells us that as we draw nigh to God, He will draw nigh to us.  I can see a picture of God waiting for us to take the initiative in our relationship with Him, and He eagerly responds to our efforts by taking two steps towards us for every one step we take towards him.

 

Think about how valuable it is to have a close, intimate relationship with God.  This is where we hear His voice clearly and accurately.  This is also the place where we feel supremely loved and cared for.  When we truly live as His “bride” we enjoy a place of supreme favor in His eyes.
