I have not been on an extended fast since 2007 (for almost 4 mos) prior to The Call Nashville and it was a strict Daniel fast (vegetables, legumes, water). I also fasted all social media and entertainment and of wearing jewelry, Looking back I believe I was very legalistic about it and there was little joy until the actual day of the call in Nashville. As a consequence I would literally shudder (and internally shake) at the thought of entering another fast. The spirit of God never called me into another one either until I heard about the Jesus Fast and this one grabbed me and has been a delight for me! It's been full of grace, felt full of ease and freedom. I have had greater personal breakthroughs and deeper encounters with Jesus. I now hunger for more for me and for others. I also recently heard in my spirit that I was being called to a life of fasting and prayer; that truly His burden is easy and His yoke is light! Then, I read of your call to embark on another season of fasting for our Jewish brethren and I believe I'm in .
I heard God calling me into a fast months before God sent out, into the world, the invitation for the “Jesus Fast” .
Pray excites me...prayer touches deep places in my spirit....I LOVE TO PRAY...I LIVE TO PRAY...BUT I PRAY AND AM CONNECTED TO ETERNITY .
I have walked 46 years reconciled to The Creator ... The Eternal One because of the selflessness sacrifice of JESUS the Son of God ...I have received the baptism of the Holy Spirit....Yet I have never successfully fasted for even a day .... UNTIL NOW
I came to “The Send” thinking I was to old for such an event... that it’s audience would be for younger than my children....but my hunger for more of God was greater than the lie “maybe I’m attending the wrong gathering.” ...
If God's Manifest Presence was going to be at Camping World Stadium THEN SO WAS I!
Now 40 amazing days later This temple in which the Holy Spirit dwells, that I call my body, looks very different to every person, both saved and lost, who knew me a short 40 days ago... there has been a Devine physical transformation of my body in the natural realm... and if things that happen in the natural realm mirror what has happen in the spiritual ... I say “Oh, Happy Day” how different my spirit man must now look in the spiritual realm
I, like Lou, know that God has not released me from the “Jesus Fast”....so Lou I stand with you in continuing to fast
What has changed in me to this point as a participant of the “Jesus Fast”?
And God’s not finished His good work in me yet...
God “EKBALLO” ME!
In Jesus Name I ask and pray Amen
This fast has completely changed my world and spiritual life. I started the fast with a craving for more of God, a sense of desperation to see God do something NEW. I began praying with an authority I didn’t have in the past. I felt God was truly listening to my prayers and like he was writing them down. I had INCREDIBLE encounters and moments of worship in my room where I truly felt God was next to me. I had moments where I had full on dialogue with the Lord as I just sat on the floor of my bedroom asking him questions and hearing his answers. As I would go about my day I was see go through the day. As I would go to a church service I felt my worship had grown because my closeness to Jesus had grown. I truly have felt that God has walked with me throughout this fast. I’ve also been so blessed by all the devotionals and resources that have been shared through the fast. I’ve been so encouraged in knowing that thousands of us were fasting for one purpose. I’m sad because the fast is over but I know that this closeness with the Lord and this passion can be carried over and this can be my daily living! Thanks to all for putting this fast together SO excited for what is to come! God will continue to blow our minds.
