What say you?

Day 8 - 21-Day Fast

Walk With God

“Therefore go…” Jesus says. “God is with you…and so am I.”

On your eighth day of fasting, remember:
- Water needs to be with you at all times
- Rest and relax as much as possible
- Remember your prayer time and prayer place
- Write your thoughts in your prayer journal
- Continue to meditate and listen
- Sugar free mints

Physical Effects:
- Senses begin to heighten
- Cravings can occur, especially with pictures and smells
- Weight loss continues
- Bad breath
- You begin to find what is known as the “sweet spot”

Today’s Quote: “So are the saints and pioneers of faith down through the ages. And they’re all saying—shouting—You can do it, in Jesus’ mighty name! Go for it! Think big! Dream without boundaries! Be limited only by what He limits. Change the world!” (Bill Bright - Founder, Campus Crusade for Christ; Amazing Faith, the Authorized Biography of Bill Bright)

Thoughts for your Journal:
- How can this fast give you supernatural insight?
- Reflect on how there is great power and supernatural blessing that awaits the man or woman who forsakes all flesh for the chance to know their Savior and hear His voice.

Today's Prayer

... "Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit," says the Lord Almighty. ~ Zechariah 4:6.

Lord, empower me by Your Spirit today. I do not want to do anything out of vanity or just trying to "climb every mountain" on my own. I long to be led by Your Spirit, not by human initiative and man-inspired positive thinking. Please help me to be a positive, joyful person, full of Your Spirit, inspired by Your Word, and busy about Your work as I go through daily life. I pray that all I do will glorify You and be evidence of Your power and Your might and Your Holy Spirit.

In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
