2 Corinthians 10:5 says, we ought to cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
A NEW YOU doesn’t just come because you want it. It comes by doing the necessary work from the inside out.
As a believer, your thought life can bring you into a place of victory or defeat. Nothing just happens! If you are going to put off the old and embrace the new, you have to think the right thoughts! Your thought life can cause you to make decisions that can be advantageous or detrimental to your present and future. Most of all, your thought life contributes to your character. Yes, the person that is presented to the world everyday.
Taking authority over my thought life is one of my main focuses as I embrace the year 2013. For 21 days, I will be journaling, praying and fasting in an effort to keep my thoughts pure, and focused on the will of God for my life as I take bold steps forward this year. Would you like to join me?
This year, I have committed myself to a Daniel Fast from January 6th – January 27th. The Daniel Fast involves a spiritual commitment to God. I personally love to fast because it gives me an opportunity to draw in closer to God and hear what He is saying to me personally. (I always say that before the Holy Spirit will speak to you about anything or anyone else, He will first talk to you about YOU). Are you ready to do the work to become a better You?
I chose the Daniel Fast because this gives me an opportunity to cleanse my temple, while praying and rejuvenating myself spiritually. The Daniel Fast consists of consuming only vegetables, fruit, and water as you focus on God through prayer and meditating on His Word. If you would like to participate on this fast with me, become a member of our new social networking site, 1 Million Women on Fire 4 God (http://1millionwomenonfire4god.ning.com/?xgi=3wzN6WPiCsO4zW).
1 Million Women on Fire 4 God is an exclusive social networking site where you can be inspired, make new friendships with like minded Christian women and men, while engaging others regarding the Word of God. Starting this weekend, I will be sending specifics messages out to members of 1 Million Women on Fire 4 God regarding the food consumption guidelines of the Daniel Fast and scriptures to meditate on a daily basis from this site.
Note: With any fast, please consult your doctor before starting.
During this fast, I will also dedicate a portion of my day to pray for the Optimal Living Magazine readers. If you have a prayer request, please send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. I would LOVE to hear from you!
