Week 2: Using the Bible for Guidance

Today’s Easy Task:  Prepare a Sabbath Day Fast

How to rock this task: 

  • Try partial fast – excluding dairy, meat & alcohol for a day (Daniel 10:3) 
  • Try complete fast – drinking water or juice for a day   
  • Cut out spending for a whole day 
  • Gain strength by relying on the Holy Spirit and the Holy Bible (Luke 4:1-2) 

Today's Devotional:

Yesterday, you created a health and wealth routine! That’s Awesome!

Now is the time to prepare for your fast on the Sabbath! Officially the sabbath is Friday sundown to Saturday sundown, so if you can rest on the Sabbath, do it. Matthew 11:28-29 says, “come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” One day out of the week, you should fully rest just like God, the creator of heavens and earth (Exodus 20:8-11). You can choose to eat less, move around less and take a break from chores. I believe the Sabbath is God’s appointed time for you to rest and fellowship in Him (Exodus 33:14).

There is a verse in the 23rd Psalm that says, “He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still water. He restores my soul” (Psalm 23:2-3). God truly wants you to rest. He doesn’t want you to be burdened and stressed. He doesn’t want you to worry about money and health. He doesn’t want you concerned about what to eat, drink, and wear (Matthew 6:31-34). Instead, He wants you to keep your mind on Scriptures because it resets your mind and body.

Today’s Prayer:

God, You are my shepherd. You give rest to the weary and the wounded. You supply all my needs. Thank you for giving me rest and being my provider. Help me to fellowship with You just as Adam fellowship with You on the first Sabbath. I need Your presence. Forgive me for not making time to fellowship with You. Let me forgive those who have neglected to spend time with me. Help my fellowship with you to be done with love. Help me to resist the temptation to work continuously without rest. Help me to rest mainly in your presence so my body, spirit, and soul can receive the total restoration. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

Today's Scriptures:

Daniel 10:3, Luke 4:1-2, Matthew 11:28-29, Exodus 20:8-11, Exodus 33:14, Psalm 23:2-3, Matthew 6:31-34
