use to “fast” from Facebook, TV, games, or any other time consuming entertainment, and I never really grew spiritually when I did. I know that sometimes stepping away from those things are needed. But as I study fasting in the bible, I learn that fasting is ALWAYS about food and/or drink. NEVER about anything else. I also have never grown more spiritually in my relationship with Christ as I have with a biblical fast. I guess that’s what happens when you truly go back to bible basics and seeing what the Word says about these things.
Have you tried fasting and praying for the one you love? The person you said “I do” to, “for better or for worse”. You vowed to stand by their side no matter what, but as soon as it gets hard we’re ready to give up. If you are going through struggles and ready to call it quits, I urge you to fast and pray for 21 days, just 3 weeks. You can fast from your morning coffee, that sweet treat you love to eat, a full meal, maybe even meat or a combination of those items. Pray daily for how you FEEL and what you want especially if it lines up with God’s will. I challenge you to do that. See if you’re still ready to give up at the end of it.
Matthew 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
If you put as much prayer in your spouse and faith in God as you do food in your face, I guarantee you will see a difference.
Your prayer can be as simple as to not hate your husband, to be a better wife and be the wifey role you auditioned for, for him to love you as Christ loves the church, for your focus to be on the Lord, both of you.
Taste and see the Lord is good…
