We are coming to the end of day two of our 10 Days of Praying and Fasting. If you’ve joined us with the 10 Days of fasting this is when it starts getting tough! Remember the first few days will be the most challenging as our body is being cleansed. Not only is it a time for our body to be cleansed but also a time for our heart to be cleansed. Take some time today to pray and ask God to cleanse and strengthen your heart. God is up to something big in your life and we need to get the junk out of our heart so that He can fill it back up with His power!
Today I want to encourage you to read Daniel 1 and notice Daniel’s example. When Daniel decided to not partake of the King’s delicacies the Bible says in Daniel 1:8, “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies…”(NKJV)
Notice Daniel “purposed in his heart”. He was determined and made up his mind from the beginning that He was going to stand strong. Let’s determine today that we are going to finish strong. Let’s purpose in our heart that we are going to seek God with everything we’ve got… heart, soul and mind.
