What is the thing in your house that you hate cleaning the most? For me, I hate to do laundry. I don't know what it is about laundry, but as the basket gets full, I just hate the thought of having to wait for the washer, and the dryer, then having to go and fold and hang everything. It seems like a single load can take half a day to complete.
Deep cleaning though, is something that I love. I love the feeling of finding the dirt that was hiding, going through closets and throwing things away, and looking at my house and seeing everything nice and fresh.
When we fast, we are taking the time to deep clean our minds, bodies, and souls, We are ridding ourselves of everything unclean and focusing ourselves on what truly matters, God. You realize that you can survive without things that you relied on before. You can make it on a tough day without coffee, you can turn to God instead of sweets, you can pray for longer than 5 minutes, it is all possible.
We are almost to the half way point of our fasting and prayer. At this point, it's easy to say, we've done enough. But get ready God is about to most us into hyperdrive.
Take some time this morning and listen to what Lee Jackson shares about how God has used his life.
