Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Ronnie Floyd. He said: “God’s gateway to supernatural power and spiritual breakthroughs is prayer and fasting.”
Our fasting devotional today is titled “WHAT PHYSICAL EFFECTS TO EXPECT WHILE FASTING” (PART 4) from the late Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ.
The final physical effect of fasting is minor fasting discomfort.
As a suggested relief: Take one teaspoon of psyllium seed powder morning and evening. Mixed in lukewarm water, it becomes like Jell-O. This powder will hasten the elimination of toxins from your colon and help to prevent headaches and dizziness for most healthy people. Alfalfa tablets can help control bad breath and cleanse the system. Two tablets at a time can be taken several times a day.
In my desire to be absolutely faithful to my first 40-day fast, I stopped taking my usual vitamins and minerals. However during subsequent fasts, I have felt strongly impressed to continue my vitamin and herbal therapy and also using psyllium. I do this to keep my “temple” healthy while continuing to deny myself the pleasure of eating solid food.
