Well you may or may not know but I just finished participating in the Daniel fast on the 21st of this month. What is the Daniel fast you ask? Well, at the core a fast is a biblical principle where you sacrifice food or a meal or anything for more time with God and just a time to be closer to him.
The Daniel fast is based off of Daniel 10 where Daniel, from the lions den, pretty much goes vegan to show the power God has and how he gains his strength from God. So me my family, my beautiful girlfriend, and my church participated in this for 21 days and it was amazing!
Now I know to some it might seem weird or crazy. But going through this fast has been such a peaceful and insightful time. Giving up these things and replacing with time with God is just unexplainable.
Now I’m not saying it was easy but it was definitely worth it! Not only do I feel better and internally clean but I’m stronger with God than ever before and I have gotten done direction in areas I was confused. And it sparked some of my New Years goals.
It always surprises me how if we give up such a small thing for something so much greater and bigger than ourselves how much God can bless us!
