Remember me saying that I usually start fasting on January 2 because I want to get one more meat filled meal in before I start but I felt like God was telling me to not put it off and to begin on January 1? Well, the enemy hit me right between the eyes yesterday. As I was talking to God about it I realized that is why He told me I needed to start fasting on January 1 and not wait. Once again, He amazed me. He knows exactly what we need before we even need it.
The enemy is constantly prowling seeking whom he may devour. Don't be devoured by the enemy! Fasting and praying can help keep you from being devoured by the enemy. It's not going to stop things from going wrong. As a matter of fact, it's going to make the devil mad when you focus on trying to draw closer to God so he is likely to come after you harder than before. But, fasting and praying gives you an extra layer of protection and gives you strength and boldness like you never had before.
"Fasting doesn't just pertain to what you put in your stomach, but what you feed our soul and spirit as well."
"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which is God's." I Corinthians 6:19-20
Here's a zucchini recipe for you that looks fairly easy. You can also take zucchini or eggplant, slice it and layer in a casserole dish. Pour marinara sauce over it, sprinkle with Italian cheese and bake about 30 minutes on 350 degrees.
Please keep me & my family in your prayers. I am praying for you and yours.
Many blessings to you all,
