"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." romans 12:1
Each year in January I start a process that I call "fast forward". Fasting is not just a beneficial thing to do physically, it's also an amazing thing to do for your spirit! For me fasting is never about food but rather about becoming more and more sensitive to the things that the Lord wishes to do through me and to me.
So for the next 21 days I will be tuning in to God in a much deeper way than normal. And it all begins with presenting my body to the Lord to be prepared for the purposes that He designed me for. I will be taking extra time each day for prayer and helping others. I will also attempt to read more scripture to fill up my spirit and strengthen me for the year ahead.
He made you for a very specific purpose too! You are here on the planet because you are amazing and highly valued in carrying out His mission on earth. Consider fasting forward with me and see what God can do through you! Let me know what happens in your life!
