Isaiah 58:6 “Isn’t this the fast that I have chosen? To loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke.”
I’ve been preparing for a 21-day Daniel fast that starts tomorrow. I’ve never done anything like this before. I’ve wondered what is harder – passing up foods that I really love – or passing up food all together. This will be my first time to fast coffee. I have slowly been winging myself off. This is HUGE for me. It’s the one thing I refused to give up in all the time that I’ve been fasting. And I think that is why this fast is such a bigger deal to me. I have finally grown to where I want to give Him my all. Not just some of me.
I look forward to hearing His voice more clearly. I look forward to the deliverance He’s got for my sister. I look forward to the breakthrough that He’s got in store for Greenville Prison Camp. The Chaplain said Sunday that 2012 is the year for breakthrough. And what better way for us to show God we’re ready than this!
We each have something we’re fasting for. There’s 6 or 7 of us in agreement on this. I will be posting a prayer list later this week for anyone who wants to pray with us.
I keep hearing in my spirit Mark 9:29, “some can come forth by nothing but prayer and fasting.” And I am believing that this is true and God’s Word does not come back void. So we’re receiving the breakthroughs that are on their way!!
