As we go through the Daniel Fast corporately, I encourage you to give it your all. Here are three steps that will guide you in maximizing your potential:
- Choose to be an example (1 Timothy 4:12-16) Keep doing what’s right just because it’s right
- Walk by Faith (2 Corinthians 5:7) Never stop expecting from God, Never stop Believing!
- (Mark 11:22-23) Don’t speak to God about your mountain, speak to your mountain about your God
- Feed your faith and starve your doubts, don’t give unbelief access to your heart
- Walk in the Blessing (Ephesians 1:3)
- The Blessing is not something to strive for, you already have it.
- Instead of praying to be blessed, receive the blessing that God has already given to you
- Instead of praying for healing, receive the healing that God has already provided, and Thank Him for it
These Truths are found in God’s Word, fasting and focusing on the Word could revolutionize your relationship with God. During this fast I pray you receive Wisdom, Insight, and clear Understanding for your life and assignment in the Kingdom of God
