After the 2008 election, we attended a church service where the pastor preached a sermon about how regardless of who wins elections, God remains on the throne.

Fasting isn’t a popular topic. The moment the subject is broached you almost see people become physically uncomfortable. The conversation switches rather quickly.
We live in a world where we worship pleasure and entertainment. We are forever on the quest for what feels good, what we want to do, and what is fun for us. Enjoying life isn’t wrong.

Fasting reorients our will with God’s will.
“Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If anyone wants to follow after me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me.” Matthew 16:24
A follower of Jesus is instructed to deny himself before bearing the cross. We can’t pick up a cross while carrying our self-pleasing, flesh-serving desires. There is a proper order of operations. Deny first, pick up second.
What if by living our best life now, we are missing out? What if we are so focused on building and creating an amazing life, home, travel, retirement, etc that we are 100% missing what the Lord really has for us?

A year later, I’ve completely changed how I view this life and this world. He reminded me of something He showed me seven years ago and now is ready for me to take seriously. Join me for today’s post. I hope the Lord stirs up something in your heart too.
