This fast is beneficial. Yesterday I faced the temptation to quit. I really like food. I was getting thoughts, pictures, and could even taste some of the foods and meats I really enjoy. I had to come to the realization that I WANT GOD, His Kingdom, and His Righteousness more than any food. This fast is leading to three more fasts; five day fasts in March and April, and a 10 day fast going into Pentecost in May. I WANT to receive Holy Spirit to at least the degree the 120 in the upper room did, preferably more.
Fasting crucifies the flesh, the self. I MUST exist yielded to GOD.
