Daniel Fast Devotion - Day 11

Remnant Worship (Fasting)
Tuesday, January 14, 2020
Day 11

Read: Isaiah 58:6-14

Key Verses: 

“Then your light shall break forth like the morning, Your healing shall spring forth speedily, And your righteousness shall go before you; The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard. 9 Then you shall call, and the LORD will answer; You shall cry, and He will say, ‘Here I am…’ “14 Then you shall delight yourself in the LORD; And I will cause you to ride on the high hills of the earth, And feed you with the heritage of Jacob your father. The mouth of the LORD has spoken,” Isaiah 58:8-9; 14 (NKJV)

Key Reflection: 
vv. 6-14 If we are not sincere in our fasting and prayers, we will not receive the promises of God which He only promises to those who are sincere. God will not be cheated by hypocritical feasts and ceremonies.  When we cease to follow our own ways and surrender to God’s divine rule within us; then, will we have the power and strength of God to accomplish His will and work. 

Thought: 
“It is sobering to realize that the very first statement Jesus made about fasting dealt with the question of motive. To use good things to our own ends is always the sign of false religion... Fasting must forever center on God. It must be God-initiated and God-ordained...Fasting reminds us that we are sustained by ‘every word that proceeds from the mouth of God’ (Matthew 4:4). Therefore, in experiences of fasting, we are not so much abstaining from food as we are feasting on the word of God. Fasting is feasting!”

Prayer:
Father, help us to desire to seek Your face more than we want dinner, then we will know the proper time to fast.

Question: 
We understand without God, we can do nothing; so how is God a part of your fast?
