Fasting For Life!

by Hazel Straub

God is calling us to a Lifestyle of Fasting. Depend on God not yourself. Sacrifice your flesh. Stop wavering and hesitating. Live a life of 100% God.

God says: Rest in me and don’t lean on your own understanding. Stop trying to always figure things out. Be prompt to listen and obey my voice. You are my sheep and come at my call. Lay aside the “I have always done it this way.” Trust in me, not in your own prowess and not in the routine. I am calling you to ask me what to do and then to do it.

This is a time of consecration and new dedication to me. Get rid of the old and to let me clothe you in my new garments. The time to humble yourself before me. to seek me and make me first in everything you do. Dedicate the first hour upon awakening to me. Listen and let me direct your day. Fast from trying to figure out everything. Listen to me and be quick to obey. I am calling you into closer bonds of love with me.

Fast performance and striving, instead rest in your identity as my child. Come to me and leave the flesh behind. Lean and depend upon me, not yourself. Fast from negativity. Fast from complaining. Fast from depending only on yourself and your own resources. Run to me, consult me first. Make me your first priority, in all you do. Come close to me because I love you!

My own sheep will hear my voice and I know each one, and they will follow me.  I give to them the gift of eternal life and they will never be lost and no one has the power to snatch them out of my hands.  My Father, who has given them to me as his gift, is the mightiest of all, and no one has the power to snatch them from my Father’s care.  The Father and I are one.” (John 10:27-30 TPT)
