To become a better person, the Lord has led me to take a look at myself and examine what’s lacking. To see what is keeping me from being the best and to increase my potential in every area of my life. He gave me the 21 day fast.
Before I turn you off, reason with me for a moment. A fast isn’t restricted to an abstaining from eating, but can also be directed towards limiting what’s preventing you from a life of excellence. What’s a life of excellence, you ask? Well this is defined differently by each person and what ever it means to you, if you aren’t living it, this may help you. My personal definition of an excellent life is to live a life fulfilling my talents, passions, missions, assets, and potential, as well as approaching every thing objectively, without bias, and with newness in life as described by the Lord in His Word. Please feel free to adopt my definition if you don’t have one.
In order to get closer to living my definition of excellence, God showed me what was lacking in my character and told me to fast from acting in those ways during the 21 days. Then He gave me at least 3 Scriptures from the Bible to mediate on and after the 21 days, I am more empowered against that flaw. I have a new trait that replaces it. Any thing you do for 21 days straight becomes a habit and your mind or body will begin to operate in the new mind you train it with.
I pray this helps you as you continue you new years resolutions throughout the year.
