Holiday parties and programs are in full swing, which means festive foods are also in abundance. Cookies, candy canes, pies, and all sorts of sweets seem to assault us at every turn. And, since such indulgences seem to be part of celebrating the Christmas season, we partake. In excess.
That’s precisely why when January 1st rolls around, most people are suddenly highly motivated to make healthier choices. Weighed down by all the extra sugar and calories, their main desire for the New Year is to lose weight. Gyms all across the country are bursting at the seams with people working hard to get in better physical shape.
But, what if we put that much energy into improving our spiritual health?
One way I like to prepare for the year ahead is through prayer and fasting. For the past three years, I’ve led an online Daniel Fast in January. I’ve seen God do amazing things in my life and in the lives of thousands of others. This year the online Daniel Fast will be held January 4-24, 2015. Our theme is “Spiritually Strong,” based upon the verse, “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power” (Eph 6:10). If you and I want to fulfill God’s plans for us in 2015, we must focus on building spiritual muscle!
Will you join us in seeking the Lord? I recommend also getting a copy of my book, The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel Fast, to help you on your journey. Your commitment won’t be in vain. God will honor your sacrifice and bless you beyond what you can imagine!
May the Lord bless you richly as you hunger for Him!
