Mentally, physically I am preparing to shed some pounds, the Bible says it is a sin to over endulge, and that is what I am guilty of, as a Fundalmental Christian it is imperative that I be in shape, after all my body is the temple of God! 1 Corinthians 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? Mark 9:29 And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting. Matthew 17:21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting. The purpose of fasting in the Gospels and in the Old Testament was so a person could deny himself in his physical being so he might concentrate on coming into closer fellowship with God and casting out evil spirits that trouble your soul. The principle of fasting is a tremendous way to emphasize the inward person for a short period of time. In my case it will be very CHALLENGING, I work a 50 hour a week Job, and the Subway Wrap diet isn't working very well(and expensive) so I am joining the club, with this fast(starting around thankgiving) with increased prayer for God's people, I must condition and focus, I have fasted for three days before, and once I break the habit of wanting to eat somthing, I know I can do it, Jesus is our example and he Fasted for 40 days. I will drink plenty of water that cleans the body of these inpurities. So this spare tire WILL disapear! So keep me in your prayers to complete this task that has been put on my spirit.
