Daniel Fast - Day 12- Stay Strong
We’ve reached Day 12 and I just want to encourage you to keep the faith.
One thing that’s so key to remember is that whilst we’re doing this fast, and believing God for an encounter/breakthrough ... it‘s important to not get too hung up about focusing on the actual food.
If you find yourself obsessing over certain ingredients within a meal, take a breather and remember that God is the focus here lol!
I definitely learnt that lesson when I got locked out last week and was angry at God for allowing it to happen, specifically when I had made a conscious effort that morning to avoid buying a jar of sauce that had sugar as one of its ingredients lol!
It taught me that God can’t be bribed by our actions - so if our focus is on the actual foods of the fast itself, then we’ve missed the plot. Our focus should always be on Him first and foremost.
Something else God showed me yesterday in a dream/vision was that the enemy was trying to provoke certain people on this fast by reminding them of their past sins and by trying to deter them from pushing onwards, as though they are not worthy to receive a blessing.
Well let me tell you now! And I’ll say it a thousand times!!!
THE DEVIL IS A LIAR!!!!!!
Remember you have been set free and are a new creation in Christ. The blessing that The Lord has stored up for you is YOURS! And the devil can’t stand it, he can’t stop it and there’s nothing he can do about it! (as my old pastor used to say).
So be bold in your prayers with humility and grace. Thank God for His gift of salvation and for setting you free and for allowing us all to freely come to His feet and to receive from Him.
Cast out every form of doubt planted by the enemy and declare that the blessings of Abraham are yours too!
Remember ... all our sins have been nailed to the cross.
This fast shall not be in vain in Jesus’ name.
Below are some meal ideas I mentioned I would share in my last post.
Love you all.
Faith, Hope & Love,
