Today I do not have much to write, I do want to encourage anyone on the fast today.
Today is day 3, I have found that this is the most difficult day. Our bodies are accustom to eating whatever we want, whenever we want. And like most American’s we do not eat very well, lot’s of fast food, lots of sugar, lot’s of JUNK. So these first three days our body is craving these things. Use this as a reminder how much God desires us to crave Him, crave time with him, crave deep worship, intercession, prayer, quiet time and just time in his presence.
I find for myself that the intense hunger I’m feeling is very humbling, my focus is on me right now as I’m call out to God….. I want to say STAY STRONG and when breakthrough happens it will be AMAZING!!!
It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the bridegroom’s friend is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success. He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less. ~John 3:29-30~
This was part of my reading today as I’m going through a chapter a day in the book of John… this was one of me goals in this fast. To be a humble man with the focus ALWAYS on HIM and never on ME!!! In my flesh I crave the attention and I can tell you first hand that is NOT a good thing at all.
Have a very blessed 3rd day of this amazing FAST
