Mark 9:29 “And He said unto them, “This kind can come forth by nothing, but prayer and fasting.” “
Fasting, I think this is a difficult thing to do. Recently a fellow fitness expert was explaining to me the weight loss benefit of nightly fasting. A researcher found that nightly “fasts” really helped individuals control their weight. I tried this. I try not to eat anything past seven in the evening, with my 10pm bedtime and I don’t refuel myself until after my morning workout. It is amazing to me how quickly my body responded to this discipline. I quickly loose the bloat and a few extra pounds when I do this. Yet even though it works, I can still talk myself into late meals and late night ice cream. My body also quickly responds to this negative behavior. In order to have a bit more success, I am going to try remembering to dedicate my nightly fasts to the Lord as way to discipline my body. Also, there is power in fasting and praying so hopefully that will give me even more benefit then a regular diet.
I hope this inspires you to try a nightly fast unto our Lord so you too can feel the power of discipline in His love.
1 Corinthians 9:27 “But I keep my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.”
1 Corinthians 2:9 “ But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him.”
Be fit and be blessed,
