Fasting is a struggle against the flesh and is emotionally and physically demanding; in this we discover what we really hunger. Today is Day 9 of the fast. We are praying for spiritual breakthroughs in your lives & with your habits.

READ: Deuteronomy 8. Take time to read this passage today.
KEY PASSAGE: Deuteronomy 8:2-3 – “Remember how the LORD your God led you all the way in the desert these forty years, to humble you and to test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.”

A COUPLE THOUGHTS: “Do you have a hunger for God? If we don’t feel strong desires for the manifestation of the glory of God, it is not because we have drunk deeply and are satisfied. It is because we have nibbled so long at the table of the world. Our soul is stuffed with small things, and there is no room for the great. If we are full of what the world offers, then perhaps a fast might express, or even increase, our soul’s appetite for God. Between the dangers of self-denial and self-indulgence is the path of pleasant pain called fasting.” ~John Piper

CHALLENGE: Remember, fasting isn't just about getting rid of something. It's replacing it with something better. If you haven't been taking extra time to pray, or taking time to read in God's Word - do that today! Read the passage up above and study it. Take extra time today and spend praying and talking with God. He wants to spend time with you.

PRAYER: Father in Heaven, as I move forward in this fast help me to turn every hunger pain, thought or craving towards you. Teach me to feed on your word and to find a deep satisfaction in your truth. Amen.
