For those who are thirsty, and want to have an inner change, it is important for them to remember that to see an inner change is not easy. It takes work. To see an outer change is easy… what I mean is to change the color of your hair, the clothes that you wear, to put on makeup, put on contact lenses, and so on, is easy. You can even lose weight or gain it quickly. But to make an inner change is not easy.
The only one that can cause an inner transformation is the Holy Spirit. There is no plastic surgery, no magic pill, no quick fix for the inner change. And the aim of the 21 Day Fast of Daniel is to bring to you this reality. Many people have been wearing a mask. Wherever you go, you are always pretending to be someone else. You pretend to be happy, you pretend to be strong, you pretend to be in the faith, you live a life of pretending. You put one mask on to go to work, another when you come back home, another one when you go to school another one for when you go to the parties. Everybody thinks that you are happy, but you know deep down inside of you that you are sad and frustrated.
Let us look at what the scripture says:
For I will pour water on him who is thirsty, And floods on the dry ground;
I will pour My Spirit on your descendants, And My blessing on your offspring; Isaiah 44:3
If you are thirsty, He will pour the water of His Spirit upon you and pour a flood (abundance) of His presence on your dry life.
During this 21 Days, we are asking God to pour His Spirit upon those who are seeking Him. And may there be floods of blessing that follow the outpouring of the Holy Spirit in your life.
May the God of the Bible Bless You
