Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from an Unknown Author. He said: "Fasting casts out devils, chases away demons, and breaks the gates of hell like nothing else can. When we are made physically weak by fasting, the power of God is made powerful in our lives."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "WHAT IS THE DANIEL FAST?" from Susan Gregory, author of the bestselling book titled "The Daniel Fast"
The Daniel Fast is a biblically based partial fast. It is a method of fasting that men, women and young people all over the world are using as they enter into the spiritual discipline of prayer and fasting.
There are two anchoring scriptures for the Daniel Fast. In Daniel 1 the Prophet ate only vegetables (that would have included fruits) and drank only water. So from these scriptures we get two of the guidelines for the fast:
1. Only fruits and vegetables
2. Only water for a beverage
Then in Daniel 10 we read that the Prophet ate no meat nor any precious breads or foods and he drank no wine for 21 days. So from this scripture, we get a third guideline: No sweeteners and no breads
Another important guideline is drawn from Jewish fasting principles, where no leaven is used during the fast. So that's why yeast, baking powder and the like are not allowed on the Daniel Fast.
Finally, with these puzzle pieces, we conclude that no artificial or processed foods nor any chemicals are allowed on the Daniel Fast. When asked about the eating plan on the Daniel Fast, I often say it is a "vegan diet with even more restrictions." So, I would encourage you to read the ingredients on labels of prepared foods to make sure they only include Daniel Fast friendly ingredients.

Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from James Hudson Taylor. He said: "In Shansi, I found Chinese Christians who were accustomed to spend time in fasting and prayer. They recognized that this fasting, which so many dislike, which requires faith in God, since it makes one feel weak and poorly, is really a Divinely appointed means of grace. Perhaps the greatest hindrance to our work is our own imagined strength; and in fasting we learn what poor, weak creatures we are - dependent on a meal of meat for the little strength which we are so apt to lean upon."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST PRESCRIPTION: BE SPECIFIC" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
Daniel was not vague in his objection to the Babylonian diet. He defined the problem immediately, and had a clear solution to suggest to the king's servants. Although it was an act that had social and political implications and may well have cost him his life, Daniel was specific about his plan.
With so much at stake, why did Daniel reject the delicacies offered by the king? Three possibilities have been suggested: (1) The king's food was against Jewish dietary laws; (2) Daniel and his three friends had vows against partaking of the alcohol (wine) that was included; and (3) The king's food had been offered to foreign idols/demons.
The exact reason Daniel refused to eat the king's meat is not clear. Two principles, however, are evident: (1) Daniel felt it was a religious test of his faith (he "would not defile himself"); (2) Daniel had a desire for a strong physical body in which to serve the Lord.
Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Arthur Wallis. He said: "Fasting is important, more important perhaps, than many of us have supposed. When exercised with a pure heart and a right motive, fasting may provide us with a key to unlock doors where other keys have failed; a window opening up new horizons in the unseen world; a spiritual weapon of God's provision, mighty, to the pulling down of strongholds."
Our fasting devotional today is titled "THE DANIEL FAST: A BRIEF BACKGROUND" from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book "Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough".
The Hebrew, Daniel, had been taken into captivity by the Babylonian army as a young man, and transported to the city of Babylon. He and his three friends from Judea were being trained as diplomats/bureaucrats to serve in the Babylonian government. It was probably King Nebuchadnezzar's plan to have them carry out his administrative policies over the Jewish remnant.
The plan included giving the four Hebrews the finest delicacies and wine from the king's own provisions according to Daniel 1:5. But for reasons we will discuss later, such food was not acceptable to the Hebrews. So Daniel proposed to the king's servants that they be allowed to "fast" from the king's sumptuous fare, and to eat only vegetables and drink only water. If, after 10 days, they were not in better health than their Babylonian counterparts, Daniel promised that they could be dealt with as the Babylonian guards wished. (The fact that they were allowed to demonstrate the effectiveness of their vegetarian diet indicated how important Daniel and his three friends were to the Babylonian government.)
