DAY 5 — Friday, January 10, 2020
This quote from today’s reading: “Don’t think of fasting as a magic trick. Abracadabra, once and done. Fasting may transform your diet, but it is a feasting life that will change your life.”
I’d love to know which scriptures and quotes from today’s reading spoke to your hungry heart?
During our January fast I’m going to be using some of your insights to lead more fasting friends! How would you encourage others from the encouragement that you’ve received from the Lord today?
“Is not this the fast that I choose:
to loose the bonds of wickedness,
to undo the straps of the yoke,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to break every yoke?
Realizing that fasting goes a lot deeper than giving up food or drink for a while has opened my eyes and heart.
It’s not just an obvious practice to lose weight …it’s so much more then that…
it’s an inner transformation, that allows me to confront the sins of my life, which in turn will hopefully, help my escape and be set free of those cords of that yoke.
