WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

"Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, "If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread." But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'" Matthew 4:3-4.

WOW!!!!!!!  You are now two weeks into your Daniel Fast! BRAVO! You are likely over the big hunger pangs and cravings. But bread is still out of your diet and perhaps this passage of Scripture is even more meaningful to you.

One of the benefits of the Daniel Fast is that we become more aware of what we are eating. Hopefully this awareness will create healthy habits that will improve your health for months and years to come. 

We can also become more aware of what we feed our spirits and our souls. Are they well nourished? Are we feeding the wholesome food and not contaminated goods?

Jesus teaches us that we don't live only by physical bread, but even more importantly the spiritual food found in God's WORD. Just as our physical body needs to be nourished each and every day, so does our spirit. That nutrition is the Bible and then, we can add "side dishes" from Christian books, sermons, Bible studies, and Christian Television. But we need to make sure we have time every day in God's Holy WORD so He can speak to us and minister to us.

Likewise, we need to make sure we are feeding our soul, or our flesh, a healthy diet that brings life and not death. Our Father tells us that we have a choice between LIFE and DEATH and He says, "CHOOSE LIFE!" That includes the kinds of information that enters our minds through the media, Internet, television, books, conversations with our Lesan sisters, and other influences we encounter.

Do you have some "inputs" that may be giving you the best food for your soul? Are the programs you watch on television healthy and pure? Or are they contaminated and laced with toxic information. How about the Internet? The radio? The books you read? Or the conversations you have with your sisters in and out of this forum?

Just as we need to guard our bodies and make wise choices about what we eat, we must also guard our EYES and our EARS as to what is allowed to enter our souls.

Be Encouraged.........you are almost there! The Lord is your strength!

Mercy, Peace & Love.
