Daniel Fast 2018 1/15/28-1/24-18
It's that time! Once again we will journey, as a church, through 10 days of intentional prayer and fasting! It's time to put our faith into action and bring the fight to our knees in intercession... together! What will you believe God for? What expectations are you bringing to the spiritual table? Let's get real! Expect to be challenged! Don't expect an "easy" time! Expect a battle! Expect to wage war with your flesh as you deny it! However, you can also expect your Spirit man to rise up! You can expect victories! You can expect transformation and inspiration! As we crucify our flesh and surrender to the Spirit of God, we can expect healing and miracles, deliverance, freedom from bondage, breakthrough in every realm, a deeper depth of spiritual growth and testimonies of answered prayer! Keep in mind, that fasting without prayer, is nothing more than a diet! When your flesh screams…. let it be a reminder to hunger for GOD, His will, His plan, His desires... and run to your prayer closet! Fight the good fight and stay the course! Be intentional about praying and spending time in the Word. Then listen for His voice! Be still and know He is God! Be astoundingly aware of His presence! May your spiritual eyes be open and your heart ready to recieve as you join us on this journey! Please utilize this blog to share thoughts, prayers, prayer requests, scripture and encouragement as God speaks to you. Share your personal struggles and triumphs! As we take this journey together, great and mighty things are in store! We are praying for YOU!

Hey Everyone! I'm going to be posting a few links to help make your Daniel Fast more successful! Unfortunately, there are not a great variety of organically grown fruits and veggies readily available in Putnam County, not too mention they are more expensive than what is most common in our grocery stores. Also unfortunate, is the fact that pesticides are used and consumed if not properly washed etc. Here is a link that discusses white vinegar to remove traces of pesticides! http://www.healthyandnaturalworld.com/easily-remove-pesticides-fruits-vegetables/

I think this is what I used for a "pizza" dough. Is that possible?

Sounds delicious! I have never used ginger in cooking. Gonna try it! We love stir fry!

When you use fresh ginger, use a spoon to peel it. And I like to grate it on the fine side of a cheese grater so there aren't big chunks.

Good morning! I'm excited about getting started today! Daniel 9:3 "So I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and supplications, with fasting..." As we intentionally turn our attention to the Lord to seek Him and fast... I am confident we will all see a moving of God on our behalf! It's going to be a powerful time. Just remember.... as your flesh yearns for food let that be an reminder to yearn for God! As you hunger for "what to eat"... let that be a reminder to hunger for God! "Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness... for they SHALL be filled!" Matthew 5:6 Allow the longings of your flesh to be transformed into longing for the presence of your God! THAT is when you will see results of your fast! Otherwise... you are just changing your eating habits for a bit. Pray! Seek His face! Listen to His voice! Spend time with Him, and in His word! Love you all! Believing for GREAT AND MIGHTY THINGS! Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to me and I will answer you, and tell you great and mighty things you do not know!"

PS... If you struggle with reading your Bible, or would just like some targeted devotionals, may I suggest the youversion.com app! This will springboard your time in the word. You can search key words (maybe something you are asking God for... or something you struggle with and are believing for deliverance for etc...) and read daily devotionals targeted specifically for those things! Do a search of fasting! There is a wealth of devotionals for you to choose from! Hide His word in your heart while you fast! Dig in! Go deeper!

Anyone out there??? ;) Day 2! Praying for YOU! Here is a good, quick, breakfast. Warm chia seeds and fresh fruit! I tried it on the recommendation from Monica, and I prefer this over oatmeal, quinoa, grits etc... Put chia seeds in a bowl, add hot water and stir. Top with whatever fresh fruit you have. Read up on the benefits of chia and you will be AMAZED!

It won’t post the link.

Did you copy the link from your search bar and paste it in the comment section? Should work! That's all I did up above.

Sooooo..... I adapted a recipe for an Italian salad dressing that we ended up really liking!

Hi y'all. I tried my hand at a few breads I figured I would share with y'all. They turned out very good!

Awesome!! That's great!

Powerful reminder! Praying that God will help us all keep the right perspective and turn our spiritual weapons toward the right enemy!

Oops... forgot that I sprinkled the veggies with dill weed before serving.

This is a guacamole recipe from Chipotle Restaurant! It is very good! And I don't particularly love guacamole. We at up the entire dip in one sitting!

You must read Isaiah 58! My oh my! So many good nuggets on fasting... the good, the bad, and the ugly! The right way... the wrong way. What is acceptable before God, and what disappoints him. Victories and promises that await when fasting is done in the way he desires! Good Stuff! Make sure you find a version that you can easily read and understand. NIV

Well, this completes this years corporate Daniel Fast! I know God has revealed much to me... helped me to, once again, reprioritize some things in my life. I continue to believe for the miraculous! God is on the move!
