Tuesday Fasting Tips

This is the last Tuesday of our fast. On this Friday, February 28th, at 6:00 p.m. our fast will be completed. Will you end your fast in prayer, in praise, or “pigging” out at an all you can eat restaurant? I pray that you will sense God’s spirit saying to you “well done”. You did it. Now what? Sister Madeline has some words of encouragement for us regarding the challenges ahead.

Thoughts on Fasting by Madeline Nichols

Blessing to you on this day; we have three more days left to fast! Praise God! During this fast I have been praying for finances for our household, education for our girls, blessings for our church, and last but not least, total health for me. Jeremiah 30:17 says, “For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of thy wounds,” said the Lord. I have felt great during the fast. I want to feel good, look good and be healthy all the time. Why can’t we just decide to eat this way all of the time? I believe that God will heal. Indeed, He will. We also play a major part in our healing by eating the right things. During this fast, we had to renew our medical coverage and that included a weigh in, blood pressure checks and a few other things. I felt good knowing that my weight and pressure would be reduced. I scored well. What things from the fast will you keep in your diet? What things that you no longer ate during the fast will you not bring back into your diet? Yes, this fast is a challenge but life after the fast is even more challenging. We go do this fast once a year and this is how I need to eat in order to be healthy. Hello lights! An answer to prayer already! The Daniel Fast.

Thoughts on Fasting

By Pastor T

What words would you use to describe your fast thus far? Challenging? Rewarding? Spiritual? Adventurous? Insightful? Hungry? Whatever word you use remember the full meaning or result of your fast will be revealed often sometime after the fast. I remember fasting as a young student in college. I wanted to be used of God like some of the people of the Bible or those in my local church. I wanted to be used by God on the foreign mission field or in service to those in need at home. The only way I knew to kindle that kind of passion and power was to stay before the Lord in fasting and praying. I knew that I needed God’s strength to help me to grow in the Lord. Years have passed since those early college fasting days but when I am traveling or ministering I am often reminded of those days of fasting. God brought those yearnings and desires to pass in His own time. As you fast, you may see physical weight loss . Your waistline may have gotten a little thinner. You can even put on those jeans that you almost threw out last year. But the spiritual blossoms may take a little longer to bloom. Please know that the Holy Spirit is at work in your life. I pray that you will keep fasting so that you too will be wonderfully surprised at how God indeed answers your prayers and honor your fast. Perhaps while you are fasting, but usually his master piece takes time. I have included that infamous scripture on waiting that all of us like to quote but none of us like to do. Be blessed!

Isaiah 40:31 (NIV) 31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Isaiah 40:31 (AMP) 31 But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] shall change and renew their strength and power; they shall lift their wings and mount up [close to God] as eagles [mount up to the sun]; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint or become tired.

Isaiah 40:31 (KJV) 31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

Eat Something Good!!!

From the Pastor’s Desk:

Today is the 18th day of our Daniel Fast! We have ten more days left on the fast. Life has gotten tough for us hasn’t it? Read Sue Gusz’ devotional below and it will encourage you to keep fasting for those internal values of our relationship with the Lord. I know that the challenges of life are getting harder, but I want you to know that God is working! Let Him do the work on the inside of you.

Devotional by Sue Gusz:

Here we are, over half way through our month of the Daniel Fast. No matter how it has gone for you, if you have struggled or soared with the challenge, God is always pleased when we reach out to Him! Make sure you don’t focus as much on the food as on the fellowship with your loving Savior. Jesus warned us about the limited effects of external efforts on the internal condition of the heart. In Matthew 23: 25 Jesus warns: “…You clean the outside of the cup and dish, but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence…first clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean.” The Pharisees worked hard keeping the many rules about keeping their food and utensils ceremonially clean, but not as much effort into keeping their hearts and souls clean. During this fast, I feel that God is revealing to me areas in my life that need ‘cleaning up’. What I read, hear, watch on TV, movies or the internet becomes a part of me. I identified a TV show that I had enjoyed watching for the clever writing and interesting characters, but that delivers a demeaning message about men. All of the male characters have serious moral flaws including adultery, lying, scheming and cheating to name a few. This message is contrary to God’s purpose for men. I don’t want this wrong message a part of me, so I quit watching that show. I am so grateful that God is still revealing his purpose for me, still challenging me to a holy life and making it all practical. During the fast I have found a delicious dish that I would like to share with you. Enjoy!

Cuban Rice and Beans

1. In olive oil, cook for 5 min over medium heat: 1 onion, thinly sliced, 1 lg bell pepper (sliced), 3 minced cloves of garlic, 1tsp dried basil, 1 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp ground coriander

2. Add 16 grape tomatoes, cook for 3 min.

3. Add 5 tsp white wine vinegar and cook for 30 seconds until it evaporates.

4. Mix in 15 oz can low-or no-salt black beans (rinsed and drained) and 15 oz low- or no-salt pinto beans (rinsed and drained). Bring to a boil and then simmer covered for 30 min. stirring occasionally. Mixture will thicken.

5. Serve over brown rice and enjoy. Bless you,

Sue Gusz

Fasting Focus
by Brian and Vinita Sepolen

I had a lot of anxiety going into the Daniel Fast this year. I was excited to see Vinita desiring to join me again this year, but her questions about what we were going to eat were weighing me down. Nevertheless, God came through and made provision for us.

Michelle has been a great resource with ideas from her Pinterest page (available on our New Hope Facebook page and our website). The old Luckys (Food Max?) turns out to be my best place to get produce as far as price and quality are concerned. And I find I’m more in tune with what the Holy Spirit is giving me concerning how to prepare our food.

About that… I feel a little funny, because the food tastes so good. Except for missing bacon, I think I could eat like this all year round! Mmmm… bacon…I miss bacon… Sorry, about that. Vinita shares that we are more aware of how things smell and taste, too. The kids are not fasting with us this year, so they get to eat the bacon, and I’m happy to prepare it for them. It is no trouble at all to watch them eat it while we abstain. God is the source of our strength. I have found solace in His Word, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”, Philippians 4:13. But then, the fast is not just about food.

Vinita says she is really into her devotionals as well. The distractions of life are still there, but like Vinita, I too feel a desire and need to connect with God. The hardest part of that is getting together as a family to do some study time. Individually, we have time, but someone always calls, or one of the kids needs attention in a different way. Still we press on and get some study and prayer in where we can. Thank God for family grocery trips where we can turn off the music and pray together. I also see where God has been blessing me because of my obedience to His call: witness the Blue Blessing, (the PT Cruiser He has given for our/His use).

And now I’m laying myself at the altar and finding things in me that need to go. Long deep-rooted anger that God is working to get it out. I thank Him for loving me so to give me a loving and supportive environment. Thank you, New Hope. God bless you, too!

Today is the 11th day of our Daniel Fast! Physically, you should start seeing some weight loss or inches lost by today. Stay on your fast. Spiritually, you may not see any results from your fast. You might even be frustrated and disappointed but keep fasting. God is working even if you can’t see Him working in your life.

Become a doer of the Word

Jesus said, “By myself I can do nothing; I judge only as I hear, and my judgment is just, for I seek not to please myself but Him who sent me.” John 5:3

Jesus did only what He heard His Father tell Him what to do. He first was submitted to God. Then He took the time to hear from His Father. Jesus would get up early and go to be with the Father. He would separate Himself from the crowds and from His disciples so He could be alone and listen to God. He studied the Scriptures and was committed to the truth of God.

And then Jesus obeyed. He only did what His Father told Him to do. Nothing more. Nothing less. “Very truly I tell you, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.” John 5:19

How about you and me? What and who are we listening to? Are we listening to what the people around us are saying? Are we listening to the lies of the enemy about our circumstances? Are we listening to our own words and ideas? Or, are we maturing into faithful children of the Most High God . . . and like Jesus, listening only to what the Father says and then doing only what He tells us to do.

Let the Daniel fast open a channel from God’s voice to your action. Seek His direction and obey Him when He speaks to us.

From the Pastor’s desk:

We are in Day 4 of our fast. I want to encourage you to continue. You can last on the fast. If you haven’t started, it’s not too late to start. During the month of February, I will send you small devotions from members expressing what the Lord is showing them during the fast. The first one is from Joyce Laury. Joyce is in Sacramento but still desires to receive all of our communications and is constantly praying for our church. She is also excitingly fasting with us. Please see her testimony below:

Jeremiah 1:1-10 (Message Version) God reached out, touched my mouth, and said, “Look! I’ve just put my words in your mouth—hand-delivered! See what I’ve done? I’ve given you a job to do among nations and governments—a red-letter day! Your job is to pull up and tear down, take apart and demolish, And then start over, building and planting.”

This was very powerful in my soul! And I’m all in! Here we go fasting for another February. I had started slowing down my eating a week prior to the fast and during our days of consecration I simply got to myself to prepare my heart, my mind and my body. Wouldn’t you know it, got began to bless me even before the fast. I just got a job as a caretaker here with my cousin, and housing has agreed for me to be a live-in at no cost to either of us. I went to the class this morning and all my paperwork went through and I am bonded. Whoooooo Hoooo! There will be checks with my name on it. And this is just HALF of the first day of Consecration! What will this fast yield? What will this fast loosen for us? My prayer for New Hope is:

“That for every member and couple of our church ask God and trust God to break every chain, stronghold, thought and deed that keep us from doing His will in our lives.”

Prayerfully submitted from Sis. Joyce.

Confused about the Daniel? Remember that there are several Daniel Fast guidelines online and all are helpful. Some allow certain foods and others do not based upon the author’s bias as a purist, vegan, vegetarian, etc. Also, so many other food options have been created since Daniel’s original fast. At New Hope church we allow baked chicken and fish over the weekends since this fast is 28 days. We allow Almond milk and soy milk (unsweetened). We allow honey and Guava. Also remember you can eat whole wheat breads and peanut butter. (No jelly or jams! )

Join us for 8:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. worship as we continue our journey of Faith!  Does God want the Christian to walk a perfect journey?  Does he forgive us for our mistakes?  Are we a person who practices forgiveness?    Bring a friend to either one of these dynamic worship experiences.

 

Also this Sunday, right after the 10:30 service, we will meet with parents and youth who are going on the South Africa trip. We will be discussing the letter, other fundraising events, the itinerary, and more. Please be there if you are able.  Contact Sis. Michelle Savoy if you did not receive a direct email from her yesterday.
