“The Consecration of Renewal!” ~ March 27th through April 14th                       

 The Psalmist declared, “Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) This is considered a ‘Penitential’ Psalm that was written by King David who expressed sorrow over his failures and confesses his sins to God.

We all must consider & ponder that the first priority of our lives is to be in right relationship with our Lord and Savior! And in the hustle & bustle of everyday life, we can be caught up with issues that slowly take our focus from protecting that relationship with the Lord. That’s why we all must seek for our spirits to be ‘renewed.’ The Hebrew transliteration for renew is ḥādash which means to cause to be rebuilt, repair, or to be made new.

‘Renewal’ takes place when we deliberately take time in our schedule to consecrate ourselves unto the Lord with fasting, prayer, and thoughtful scripture reading. This consecration promises to be an exciting and impacting time where we reconnect & move with God to a greater place with Him!

Principles of Fasting

The Body

Certainly our bodies are effected as our diet is changed during “The Daniel Fast,” and for some in very dramatic ways. Many men and women experience detoxifying from caffeine, chemicals, and sugar. The symptoms are most often headaches, leg cramps, pain in lower back, fatigue and malaise.

Most people lost weight during “The Daniel Fast.” And many report healings from diabetes, allergies, arthritis and cancer.

The Soul

The Soul is also greatly impacted during “The Daniel Fast.” The soul is the seat of our emotions, intellect, personality and will. It is in the ‘soulish realm’ where we experience cravings, frustration, anger… and even happiness.

During “The Daniel Fast,” your soul may very well rebel against the dramatic change in your diet. Winning this battle over the flesh is often one of the most powerful lessons during the fast.

The Spirit

Our spirit is the born-again part of us that surrenders to God. We become filled with the Holy Spirit when we yield our spirits to Him. During “The Daniel Fast” we want to put our spirit in charge of the other two parts of us. When our flesh is acting out with a craving, we take control of it with our spirit.
