Did you know Paul was fasting when God called him and gave him the assignment for his life? Did you know Peter was fasting on a rooftop when God gave him a new revelation and called him to take the gospel to the Gentiles. What is God revealing or going to reveal to you during your Fast?
On your ninth day of fasting, remember:
1. Don’t forget to drink lots of water
2. Remember your prayer time and prayer place
3. Write your thoughts in your prayer journal
4. Continue to meditate and listen
“Fasting prepares the way for God to give you fresh revelations, fresh visions, and clear purpose. God will do this for you. Stay the course, finish the race. An incredible reward of fresh wind and fresh fire awaits you on the other side.”€
Thoughts for your Journal:
1. Think about the mental, physical and spiritual battle you encounter as you give up certain foods.
2. Reflect on the battle that ensues between the carnal man and the spirit.
3. How has Godâ€™s presence become clearer through this experience?
Can’t wait to hear what God is speaking to you!!
Vegetarian Spaghetti Squash
Slice squash in half lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds with a spoon as you would a pumpkin. Then completely submerge both halves in boiling water and cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the inside is tender to a fork and pulls apart in strands. (It is better to undercook if you are not sure). Remove, drain, and cool with cold water or an ice bath to stop the cooking. Then use a fork to scrape the cooked squash out of its skin, and at the same time, fluff and separate the squash into spaghetti-like strands. Discard the skin. Reheat the squash strands by dipping with a strainer in boiling water just before serving.
You can also bake the spaghetti squash in the oven. Just scoop seeds out as described above and prick outside skin with a fork. Place skin side up in a baking pan with 1 inch water. Bake 45 minutes or until tender in a 400 degree oven. Remove and allow to cool for a few minutes until they can be handled. Scrape with a fork as mentioned above and serve with stir fried sauce.
