God Shines His Light... on Me
I recently came off a three-day fast... started for our nation. This was my experience:
Day One: I found great clarity of thought, vision and the power of God (especially, the Holy Spirit praying through me).
Day Two: I experienced deep humility; I became utterly aware of how I allowed my flesh to rule and the necessity of fasting regularly for increasing self-awareness, greater awareness of others and God.
I realized this fast was spiritually empowering, strengthening (through Christ) to overcome fleshly desires, lusts [especially concerning shopping/buying, over-eating, what I allow myself (and desire) to do and to watch on TV].
Day Three: God's overcoming power became clearly and empirically evident.
Discovery: In me, fasting plays an important part in overcoming otherwise unknown/unseen weaknesses. Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, fasted regularly.
