Word of Life Daniel Fast 2012

Pastor Bill has asked the church to participate with the leadership team in a Daniel Fast.  Last year was the first year for such a church-wide fast, and though a number of resources were provided it was difficult to wade through all of them.

After considerable searching, I found that Elevation Church had a very good downloadable file.  Part of the information from their website is in the brochure we are distributing throughout Word of Life.  Rather than copy and paste their file, here’s the link to it: http://danielfast.elevationchurch.org/.

There is a wealth of additional information available on the web, but this is the best one of what I looked at.  If you want something that will not only help you in this twenty-one day church fast but also in the long-term, look at http://danielplan.com/.  You can Google daniel fast and come up with some other sites as well.

Remember, if there is not a spiritual component to your fast, you’re not really fasting…you’re just changing your diet.  Isaiah 56 has a lot to say about fasting–it’s a good place to start reading before you begin your fast. 

So, get your flesh under control and let your spirit take charge of you life as we embark on this journey together.  God bless, and happy fasting!
