Once again we at First Assembly in West Memphis are in the midst of a corporate Daniel Fast.
Once again I am reminded of my humanity and my dependence upon "things" other than God.
So, my prayer today is for TOTAL DEPENDENCE upon God - not on Diet Coke, or some sweet sumptuous chocolate.
Daniel refused to eat the delicacies from the king's table.
Hmmmmmm, in our culture, delicacies are commonplace to our diet. We take no thought of eating things that give us pleasure. We are blessed beyond our ability to even fathom the depth of those blessings.
During this fast I want to seek God with my whole heart. I want to know Him more than I ever have. I want Him to look at me and see His Son. I do want direction on some things and I do want to see Him move in a mighty way in our church. But more than anything, I want more of Him in EVERY area of my life. I want the passion. I want the anointing. I want the relationship. I want to want HIM more than anything else!
I want to "want" Him more than I want a diet coke right now - which is a pretty big "want". :0)
blessings to all of you as you seek His face!
