Avoid frequent trips to your refrigerator. The
more you look at those biscuits, cakes, and
chocolates, the more they appear unusually
beautiful and attractive to you. If you continue, you
may suddenly realize those things have voices. And they will call you.
Don’t hang around the kitchen when something
is being cooked. Most times, your favorite dishes
are always prepared when you have decided to
fast. And for the strangest reasons, your nose
would begin perceiving them strongly in a whole new light. At this point you may even perceive how
an ordinary boiling water smells like fried chicken.
Don’t sit staring at someone eating. You naturally
gravitate towards something you behold. The glory
of food has a way of shinning brighter the moment you decide to fast. Just walk away
This is not the time to hold business meetings at
your favorite food joints. Especially those bukas
where they openly display the assorted meats and
food. When you keep seeing people carry their
plates of food to eat, you may suddenly buy that argument that God is a God of grace, and would
understand that “body no be fire wood”, and if you
broke the fast there and then, that his grace is
sufficient for you. Men and brethren, Just run!
When it’s time to break the fast, please don’t
begin with pounded yam. Abeg ! You may suddenly need God as your Jehovah rapha. Begin
with some liquid or fruits. If possible forsake the
swallow family till after the fast. If you can.
Because you are not eating, your mouth is not
busy and that sometimes cause it to release some
perfumes. Therefore, some mouth spray and menthol can help. This is not the time to whisper a
word of prophecy to someone in their face if your
breathe isn’t fresh. They may just fall. And it won’t
be the anointing.
And if you are doing the liquid only fast, please
be informed that custard and Quaker Oats don’t fall into this category.
Finally, pray. Fasting without prayer amounts to a
personal weight loss program.
God bless you saints. Hope this put a smile on you
May you experience God in a new way as you seek him is Season.
