Heavenly Father, I love You. I may not understand how You work at times but I know that You work for the good of those who love You (Romans 8:28).
Yesterday I finished my 40 day partial fast, and I feel great physically, mentally and spiritually. I can’t begin to explain how God has been there for me throughout the fast. Sometimes I felt like giving up because I couldn’t see/feel the changes in me but He gave me the strength I needed to keep going. I have learnt that He is always at work within me even those times when it does not feel like it.
During my fast I prayed about many things, but what I needed most from God was to be transformed by renewing my mind, heart and spirit and I can feel the changes he has made within me during this fast. When I started this fast I was depressed about not having a job but during this fast I have learnt to trust him and wait on Him patiently and see Him work it all out for me. I am still unemployed and I am happy.
I have been looking for a cheap place to rent and I prayed about it during my fast. Then, this morning I was woken up by a call from my grandma, she wanted to tell me that her friend’s house she had told me about 2 days before that was gone was still available. The person who was meant to move in pulled out at the last minute, and she said if I still wanted the house it was all mine. The owner of this house comes to New Zealand for four months every year and goes overseas for eight months so she needs someone to look after her house while she is gone and she charges only NZ$150 per week which is very cheap for a two bedroom house. I went to see the house this afternoon and it’s just the most beautiful house-I love it. Her pantry and fridge were full of food and she told me to use everything.
I just couldn’t believe it, I cried and thanked the Lord. The house is fully furnished and I move in a weeks time. I am so happy. God works things together for the good only if we trust and Love Him. I have been praying for my mother in law who suffers from heart condition. For two weeks she was unable to move, her feet were swollen and she was weak and on the last day of my fast I stayed up all night praying to God to take away the pain and heal her. The next day I received a call from my fiance telling me that the swelling was going down and shes now able to move slowly. PRAISE GOD.
This fast has been the most amazing thing I have ever done. It has helped me deepen my relationship with God, and I can say that I am stronger and better. My relationship with those around me have been improved and I feel great. There is so much more that the 40 days fast has done for me. I pray that God will continue to mould and refine me in the woman He wants me to be. I pray for God to use me for the greater good. Here I am Lord, Use me.
If you would like the mighty hand of God to move in your life, simply combine prayer and fasting. If you need a breakthrough in your life, try fasting and place your focus on God and see Him work it all out for you.
Thank you Jesus
