TOP TEN THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN FASTING
# 8 BE INTENTIONAL – Know going in why you are fasting.
1] 2 Peter 1:5 “Make every effort to add to your faith…” To be able to think past salvation to a deeper, more meaningful walk with God. 1
2] Keeping first things first, instead of defining my life by how much ministry goes out, I want to focus oh how much of Christ’s presence comes in. Devotion, leads to spontaneous service 1
3] Making my prayer life more about others than about myself.
When we do the Daniel Fast corporately as a church in January here is my game plan.
WEEK # 1 – 7 days, each day draw closer to God, more praise than petition
WEEK # 2 – 7 days, each day lift up people in prayer who are apart of our church family
WEEK # 3 – 7 days, each day lift up people outside of our church family, missionaries we support, mission agencies that we partner with, and unsaved people that the Holy Spirit brings to my mind.
TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL READING PSALM 100 [Message]
On your feet now-applaud God! 2 Bring a gift of laughter, sing yourselves into his presence. 3 Know this: God is God, and God, God. He made us; we didn’t make him. We’re his people, his well-tended sheep. 4 Enter with the password: “Thank you!” Make yourselves at home, talking praise. Thank him. Worship him. 5 For God is sheer beauty, all-generous in love, loyal always and ever.
This is why I’m fasting because, “our God is an awesome God…” “All-generous in love” Thank you!
BE INTENTIONAL! PRAISE HIM TODAY! “sing yourselves into his presence.”
