Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Andrew Murray. He said: "Prayer is reaching out after the unseen; fasting is letting go of all that is seen and temporal. Fasting helps express, deepen, confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves to attain what we seek for the kingdom of God."

Our fasting devotional today is titled "FIVE STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL DANIEL FAST" (PART 37) from Susan Gregory, author of the bestselling book "The Daniel Fast".

Consider How You Care for God's Temple, Your BodyIt's easy to see why we need to make good decisions about what will go into our mouths as food. We have a masterfully designed system to keep us healthy and full of energy. And we can either cooperate with the system - or not.

The Daniel Fast helped me take an honest look at how I was caring for the temple God had entrusted to me. Are you willing to take a look at how you are caring for your body? As you plan for your Daniel Fast, consider the fact that your physical body is either controlled by the Holy Spirit or its controlled by your flesh. The unreformed soul is the producer of unhealthy cravings, overeating, and emotional eating - also known as "food therapy." God's plan for us, His children, is that we live Kingdom of God lives! Not lives where we are sick, broken, and helpless.
