The Daniel Fast – will you see what the Lord wants to show you?
As I met with the Lord this morning, He showed me something that I want to share with you. It has to do with the condition of our hearts.
Psalm 44:21 tells us that God knows the secrets of our hearts. He knows us better than we know ourselves.
Too often we come to the Lord and ask Him to use us for His purposes. We ask Him to make in us a clean heart. It’s like walking up to the Lord, but meanwhile behind us we are dragging lots of baggage. Some of the contents we know, but it’s very likely that most of the “stuff” is invisible to us.
So then the Lord says, “Yes, I want to use you! So let’s get you ready for service. How about getting rid of that stuff that’s dragging behind you and keeping you from running the race with top speed?”
This message often comes to us when we knowingly disobey Him or when our emotions are filled with fear, anxiety or unforgiveness. It might be when we collide with our own unhealthy attitudes or behaviors.
These are all times when we can humbly come to the Lord and allow Him so show us the secrets in our heart. He is our loving Father. He wants only good for us. And we can trust Him.
I hope this thought is helpful to you . . . our Father wants us well so we can be all He created us to be!
Be blessed as you continue to grow in the love and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ!
In Him and for Him,
