awake21.org – a fast experience – day twenty-one

Saturday 02.04.12 – day twenty-one

Today is the final day of the fast.  God has done some really cool things in my heart; my life has been marked.

The benefits of fasting are not something that can be adequately relayed to another. You have to experience a fast for yourself.  It’s not just not eating or going without something you think you have to have; it is so much more. Fasting separates the wants from the needs.  It realigns our priorities.  As is always the case with God, you get so much more than you give. I gave up TV and ate a restricted diet for my part, but God has instilled in me healing, discipline, peace, a greater love for Him. He has done things deep in me that I can’t even put words to.  I am more determined, more surrendered and I trust Him more.  I just feel different.

Ephesians 3:20 says, Now all glory to God, who is able, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think.   Wow, so true!  I am humbled by the changes I see in me.  All I can say is, God, give me more!   I know He will.  He is faithful to complete the work He started (Phil 1:6).  I can’t wait to see what He does next!

The past 21 days have been amazing.  I am a convert.  I am a faster.
