21 Day Daniel Fast – Day 11

Prayer Focus: YOUR FIRST LOVE

 

What would your answer be if the Lord asked you, “Do you remember the last time you were lovesick for me?”

Do you just recall that first love you had for the Lord, or is it still a reality in your life?

When we are so lovesick for the Lord, for our first love – fasting is easy!. 

When you were courting the love of your life, food and time meant nothing… remember those days?

So, I ask you, do you remember the last time you walked away from a meal because you were so preoccupied with your ‘first love’ that the food was of no interest.

AND when last have you got lost in that first love that the amount of time you gave to experience it meant nothing?

Have you experienced times when it felt as if the Lord was distant?

You just don’t sense God’s presence as close as you once did or would like to?

Your heart hasn’t been in worship?

You lack the excitement and enthusiasm you once had for the Lord and spiritual things? 

THEN IT’S PERHAPS TIME TO STOP THE BUSYNESS OF YOUR EVERYDAY LIFE IN THIS FAST AND RESTORE THE PASSION OF YOUR FIRST LOVE BACK TO ITS PROPER PLACE IN YOUR LIFE. 

In magnifying the Lord, worshiping Him and in prayer and fasting… in being “still” in that quietness of seeking, you will find Him whom your heart desires and your first love will be rekindled.

In Revelation 2:4-5 the Lord says, “Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first… ”
