We begin each year by fasting for 21 days. Fasting in January is much like praying in the morning to establish the will of God for the entire day. When we put God first in our lives, in our families, in our finances – in everything – I believe that He will bless and multiply those areas. If we will pray and seek God and give Him our first and best at the beginning of the year, He will honor that sacrifice and bless our ENTIRE year! We will be participating in the Daniel Fast which removes all processed foods (plus dairy, meat and breads) from our menu and focuses us on a diet of fresh, whole food, “Daniel proposed in his heart that he would not defile himself” (Daniel 1:8),. This diet is spiritually symbolic of moving past a processed faith (relating to God through the experiences and interpretations of others) and daily receiving a fresh word from him. But the 21 days is more than changing our diet. It is a time of prayer. It is a time of expressing our love to God through worship. It is a time of hearing from God in new ways. Its 21 days of personally and dynamically doing life with Jesus at an entirely new level.

Daniel 1:12

“Please test your servants for ten days, and let them give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.”

Daniel 10:3 KJV

“I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled.”

Make fasting a “lifestyle!”

Fasting is not just for the beginning of the year. Commit to fasting, prayer and giving throughout the year and watch as God releases His hand of blessing over your entire year. Make fasting a regular part of your life and see how He supernaturally opens doors for you.

When going on a Daniel fast, or any type of fast, if you have questions outside of what Scripture says, prayerfully seek the Lord and be led by the Spirit for the specifics for your personal fast. This fast is not medically approved. If you feel you need to seek a physician’s expert opinion then we agree you should do it.

 

 

 

Day One and Two: “PUSHBACK”

Begin your morning with one piece of fruit either an orange or an apple for each of your 3 meals only eat half the meal and push the rest away. By doing this you will begin to establish self-control and breaking your flesh from its command over your life. If you don’t want to waste the food you can measure it by only eating no more than seven (7) ounces for each meal or half of your normal meal not exceeding seven (7) ounces.

For example: Three (3) ounces of chicken, Two (2) ounces of rice, Two (2) ounces of veggies and drink only water – Two (2) glasses to begin your morning and Two (2) glasses with each meal – you should at least drink 6-8 glasses of water each day.

Make sure to Read God’s Word and Pray speaking out your Goals and Visions for 2016. Meditate over these and Journal what you receive from the Lord.

Day Three and Four: Green Days

Start your day with 1 apple. No more than four (4) ounces of greens – salad and or vegetables with oil and vinegar only. This day you’ll begin to cut out all processed sugars and dairy from your daily meals. Remember two glasses of water in the morning and with each meal, adding up to eight (8) glasses.

Don’t Forget: Read – Pray – Meditate – Journal

Day Five and Six: Soup Days

This is a soup broth only day. Add two (2) ounces of vegetables if you need to, no more than four (4) ounces of soup broth each meal, remembering to drink eight (8) glasses of water – two in the morning and at least two with each meal.

Read – Pray – Meditate – Journal

Day Seven: Juice Day

Today have two (2) glasses of water to start your day and no more than six (6) ounces of sugarless organic juice four times per day along with 6-8 glasses of water.

Read – Pray – Meditate – Journal

This fast is not medically approved. If you feel you need to seek a physician’s expert opinion then we agree you should do it.

 

1st Day: “Souper Crush”

Have six (6) ounces of soup broth only 3 times with eight (8) glasses of water.

Read – Pray – Meditate – Journal

2nd Day: “Creative Juices”

Read – Pray – Meditate – Journal

Praying and meditating over the goals and vision God has given you for 2016. Journal what God’s speaking to you as you fast throughout the day – You must fill your imagination with pictures of what you look like in the finished work of that goal. Write down the creative ideas that you receive from God for each goal.

Again, this is not medically approved by a doctor. If you feel the need to seek a physician’s expert opinion then we completely agree you should do it.
