Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Adam Willard. He said: "Christian fasting is about developing a deeper communication with God, denying yourself and your own natural desires, and learning to rely upon and listen to God. Focus on him, seek him out, and you may find that a few missed meals reveals to you the difference between you and the infinite God of everything. And if you do encounter him during a time of fasting, I'm sure you wouldn't want to take it back for all the food and delicacies in the world."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "FIVE STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL DANIEL FAST" (PART 15) from Susan Gregory, author of the bestselling book "The Daniel Fast".
Plan how you will pray, meditate, and study during your fast.
Perhaps you are a mature Christian and have developed habits that support your spiritual growth and relationship with God. If you've found practices that work for you, then great! If you are still struggling in your prayer life, however, and haven't yet found a blueprint that meets your needs, then please know that you are not alone. I hear from hundreds of men and women who struggle in this area of prayer, Bible study, and meditation.
There are many ways to approach Bible study, prayer, and meditation, and the Daniel Fast is a perfect opportunity to develop good habits and spiritual disciplines. Consider exactly how and what you will study during this time in your fast. I encourage you to try some patterns and find a routine that works for you. Remember, the most important thing is that you want to develop a discipline that will draw you into a personal, deep, and abiding relationship with your Father.
