Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Andrew Bonar. He said: “Fasting is abstaining from anything that hinders prayer.”
Our fasting devotional today is titled “FIVE STEPS TO A SUCCESSFUL DANIEL FAST” (PART 11) from Susan Gregory, author of the bestselling book “The Daniel Fast”.
Today, we will continue looking at planning in greater detail: Here are two questions that you should consider asking yourself and answering during the planning process:
What five things would you like to accomplish over the next twelve months? Your answer might include goals like family dinners at least five days each week, learning a new hobby, memorizing one Bible verse each week, traveling to a place where you’ve longed to go, attending a Christian conference, or working toward a promotion at work. Let the goals come from within you. If you are like most people, there are many unrealized dreams and desires in your heart.
What are three new habits you want to form? Do you want to establish a morning routine that enables you to meet with your Father each day for at least one hour? Do you want to lose that extra weight once and for all? Do you want to watch television less and read more? Do you want to make a habit of complimenting your spouse and children three times each day? Again, tap into those unrealized hopes in your heart.
