About the Daniel Fast
The Daniel Fast is a process of fasting based on the fasting experiences of the prophet Daniel along with standard Jewish fasting principles. Our King James Version says; “In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks. I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.
In the Message Bible version, Daniel 10:2-3 says; “During those days, I, Daniel, went into mourning over Jerusalem for three weeks. I ate only plain and simple food, no seasoning or meat or wine. I neither bathed nor shaved until the three weeks were up. This version simplified it for anyone looking to understand better the message in the fasting.
The Daniel Fast is the time that some foods are eaten and others are constrained. The fast is for 21 consecutive days when we eat vegetables and fruits only and the only beverage on the fast is water.
It is the time for spiritual cleansing of the body and the fast is a spiritual discipline where all believers who are true followers of Jesus Christ can draw nearer to God and focus more of their attention on Him and His ways. During this time, the flesh is subdued and put under the subjection of the name of Jesus Christ. It is the to hear the still small voice of the Almighty God for His Truth to prevail in your life and for His direction for your life through the power of the Holy Spirit
Fasting is divine and designed by God to draw us closer to Him. Many fast daily unknowingly. You may wonder and ask how can it be? Yes, Brethren, you fast daily. The minute you close your eyes to sleep, you have started fasting. It is the time for God to open your ears and give you instructions. Fasting is not a way to show your righteousness to God, or whether you are good or deserving. Only Jesus Christ does that for us. However, fasting does bring us into an experience where are hearts are more open to what the Lord wants to show us for our individual lives. Remember the secret things belong unto the Lord and only those revealed belong to us and our children so that we may obey all instructions (Deuteronomy 29:29)
This is the period when you will pay more attention to the foods you eat during the fast, taking your eyes away from the fleshy things of this world and be transformed. According to Romans 12:2 which says; “And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Every February 1st to 21st every year, we the members of MFM Providence Pavilion of Praise seek the face of the Lord by fasting and praying so as to be spiritually and physically empowered, to be disciplined, to live a healthy lifestyle, and are committed with due diligence to the 21 days asking, seeking and knocking until something happens regarding our requests.
