Pack for the January 2018 Daniel Fast

When my husband and I go rock climbing, we spend at least an hour the day before we leave getting everything ready. Justin takes care of the equipment – the rope, harnesses, carabiners, quick draws, chalk bags, and shoes. My job is pack the food and make sure we have plenty of water. 

If we plan our trip well, we’ll most likely have a successful rock climbing adventure. But if we don’t, our trip to the mountains is bound to be a huge disaster.

The same is true when it comes to the Daniel Fast. 

In a few short months, I’ll be leading the January 2018 Online Daniel Fast. Even though you might be tempted to wait to get ready, you should really beginning planning your journey nowIt’s important that you get the materials you need for a successful fasting experience. 

The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel FastThe first resource I recommend for you is The Ultimate Guide to the Daniel FastIf you don’t already have a copy, you can order it through my website. If you do have the book, make sure you have it on hand. 

Second, if you’re on social media, follow my new Instagram account. I’ll be posting information prior to and throughout the fast. You don’t want to miss any updates!

Finally, read about King Jehoshaphat in 2 Chronicles, especially chapters 17 and 20. Our theme for the January 2018 Daniel Fast will be based upon those verses. I believe the Lord will prepare your heart for the fast in a special way as you meditate on the truths in these passages.

I’m already praying about the upcoming January 2018 Online Daniel Fast, asking the Lord to go before us. Pray with me. Let’s believe that this year’s Daniel Fast experience is going to be the best one yet!

    Hi, my name is Kathy, and I would like to say that this diet has been changing my life. I have only been on it since last Thursday, so you wouldn’t think that a life could change that much in one week. I can’t go into all the details because it would be too long. But the last year has been one of the biggest years of my life in a lot of ways. I call it a reawakening. Even though I have been a Christian since I was 14 (I’m 55 now), I always have felt like I have had a personal relationship with the Lord. But I have lived my life the last 20 to 25 years in ways that I shouldn’t have. I also gave up on life in a way and drank and smoked and ate until I found myself at 500 pounds. My reawakening happened sometime in the end of June or first part of July. The reason why I don’t remember exactly is because I was on a medicine that made me cloudy all the time and all I wanted to do was sleep. This medicine affected me in a lot of ways that was not good. When I finally got off of it is when I finally started waking up literally and figuratively. I had already quit drinking because every time I took a drink I fell asleep. So I started thinking what is the point!? When I quit taking Lyrica, I realized after all these years that I had to get my life straightened out and get my Life right with the Lord. I have been doing a lot of reading of the Bible and books like “Women Thou Art Loosed” by T.D.Jakes, and that is the first thing that started saving my life. I started losing weight just because I was so sick from the medicine I couldn’t eat anything for a while. But, of course, that leveled off and I started eating again. I knew if I didn’t find something that I was going to be right back up to 500 pounds and I had gotten down to about 461. I started the Daniel fast last Thursday, so this is my sixth day on it. I weighed
    this morning, and I weighed 441.1! That is 20 pounds in six days. I realize this is not a normal loss for most people but because of my size and I hold fluid really really bad. This diet has helped me, for lack of a better word, poop and pee like you wouldn’t believe! LOL I had prayed for God to lead me to the way that he wanted me to eat and this is one the first things I had come up on even though I have never seen it before. Anyway I’m sorry that this is so long, I just wanted to share in my success that I give all praise to God for what he is doing in my life. I know that none of this comes from me. Oh, and by the way, the Lord told me that if I wanted to get healthy I had to lay down the cigarettes, too, of course! He helped me to lay the cigarettes down, and I haven’t had one since the end of June or the first part of July! I really wish I could remember! LOL I’m really sorry this is so long, and I prayed about it as to whether or not I should post this because I didn’t mean to give my life history. But there may be somebody out there that needs to hear some of the words that I have said today. My prayer is that God works through me to help others. It is never too late to get your life back on track! I love the Lord and praise him!

    • Kathy, thank you so much for sharing! I’m glad you were bold and brave enough to tell part of your story. And, I agree that it will encourage others. Keep up the good work! The Lord has obviously led you to the Daniel Fast, and I’m thankful He did. God will continue to do His work in you, physically, spiritually, and emotionally. I pray that, as you submit to Him, you will experience joy, power, and peace. You are honoring the Lord by taking care of your body, and He will honor your efforts to obey His instructions. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness!
