My husband and I have been on a fast since the beginning of the year. It’s a God thing. It’s a unity thing. The results are becoming quite evident though. Very evident.
Let me tell you, we’ve fasted before and been successful…for 21 Days! Seriously!
At that time my husband did a total liquid fast. He only had soup and boost when absolutely necessary, and the soup was tomato type. No solid food.
I did a liquid Daniel fast, whole fruit and vegetable drinks, with a boost when the need for protein made itself evident.
That fast went fairly easily, after the first week or so we did fine.
This fast, is a one week First Fruits Fast…giving ourselves to fasting and prayer for 2009.
Oh man ! I am hungry! I really don’t remember this kind of hunger taking me to prayer the last fast. With each hunger pang I pray what is on my heart…faith, hope, prosperity, unity, people etc.
Yesterday, my day was way too unstructured! Once again on a Daniel Fast had a baked potatoe with broccoli with mushrooms…I was just surfing around on the internet, not being productive at all, when I decided I wanted to eat something. I decided to wait a bit longer and went into the bathroom for something when I had a thought. I should say the Holy Spirit spoke up and asked are you hungry? The answer was no! The urge to eat something immediately subsided! I stood looking in the mirror amazed.
Now, I confessed here before that I hear the voice of God audibly. And I will admit here, again, that I believe I am blessed this way because of my brick of a head! Often the voice has been scolding and loud! (:
The voice was so crystal clear this time! Like this…crystal clear sound…
It was amazing…I thought I had been blessed with His voice before…this was dynamic and comforting in the same breath!
I was not hungry.
Now, I have been focusing on my Health and Finances with God. So suddenly I realize.
I have not suffered with breathing problems for a couple of weeks now.
Glory to God!
My leg aches and pains at night have all but disappeared.
My recent and intense neck, shoulder and arm pain are gone too.
Thank you Father for your faithfulness to me!
That (the neck, arm and shoulder) was because I listened finally to the Holy Spirit…Pain Gone!
So I know that I know that God is doing a HUGE thing here. It is absolutely incredible. So regardless of what I hear, see or feel…
4 Then you will win favor and a good name
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.
I will not lean on my own understanding!
To once again quote my favorite Devotional ~ Oswald Chambers:
I will continue to “step out into the Irresistible Future with Him.”
