Today I am starting a 21 day fast along with our church and thousands of other churches around the world. I have to say I am excited about it but I am also a little nervous about it. A few years back I had the experience of my life through a fast. I went 35 days on a water fast, well actually I started out with jello and broth and after a week I went just water.
Through the fast so many amazing things happened, I led my church through a couple fast after that. When it was winding down I didn’t want to stop, I journal-ed the entire fast and I wish I still had it to refer back to, but I deleted everything I had ever written back in 2012 (I wish I hadn’t now), the time was amazing ane life changing. But that was a few years ago now. I cannot live on that experience, what I can live on is I KNOW what fasting does, what can take place!!
Another aspect of this fear is when I went through that fast I was in full time ministry and I hammered people all the time that it was possible, everyone should experience this and should be able to do it. Well, today I work 50 or 60 hours a week not to mention I’m a little older. BUT with that said, I am a man and He is God, I trust Him and I believe He has called me to do this, so today I enter in.
My plan is a juice fast and I am going to dig into the book of John. Please pray for me as I enter into this and I will pray for all those who are joining me.
