Day 14
 
¶ “Whenever you fast, do not put on a gloomy face as the hypocrites do, for they neglect their appearance so that they will be noticed by men when they are fasting. Truly I say to you, they have their reward in full.
But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face so that your fasting will not be noticed by men, but by your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”
 
Aging Christ tells us not to do things to be seen by men. If you have to be seen by men and blessed by men you will end up serving men not God, and that goes against everything Christ has had to say to us such as “do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind”
 
It truly comes down to whom will you serve, God or man?
 
Fasting to not eat but instead be in prayer, fasting now days is something most people do for health reasons not spiritual reasons. Prayer and fasting go hand and hand it is a giving up of self and spending time with the Lord
 
Matthew 17:21 “But this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting”
Psalms 35:13 "I humbled my soul with fasting, and my prayer kept returning to my bosom."
Daniel 9:3 "I gave my attention to the Lord God to seek Him by prayer and petitions, with fasting, sackcloth and ashes."
 
A humbled soul with prayer and fasting before God is a mighty soul for God!

Hodgepenny

As time went on He just sat, knoqing, knowing what no one else seemed to know.

But staring in to the red leave's He knew spring was on it's way, and that His life would go on as He reflected on the Love He had felt.

And that no mater how the lonely streets desended upon Him He would continue to shin, as He sat their He could be heard sining softly to Himself,   This little light of mine.

Hodgepenny's philosphy has always been take care of home first, only give to those who are truly in need, never, No never take anything that you have not earned. always spend as much time with the Father ae you can, for His love will guide and keep you through all things, and this will make your life better than great.
