Fasting on Thanksgiving?!??!!!

November 22, 2012

This word of the LORD of HOSTS came to me:  The LORD of HOSTS says, The fast days of the fourth, fifth, seventh and tenth months are to become times of joy, gladness                   and cheer for the house of Judah. Therefore love truth and peace.'”    Zechariah 8:18-19

First let me say: “HAPPY THANKSGIVING!”  For today we, here in America celebrate the survival of the Pilgrims who came for religious freedom and to seed a “new land” with the LOVE OF the ONE TRUE GOD…the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They survived because the Native Americans helped them learn to hunt and plant in this new “wild” land! Brother & Sister helping Brother & Sister….no animosity, only tender care and so they celebrated in the midst of their greatest challenges.

Today, God is calling us to “fast” but it is a different “fast”….on this day of food excesses, lots of family and the greatest blessing, the blessing of God’s Presence himself in our midst. we are called to fast.  God calls today to be a day of “joy, gladness, and cheer….a day to love truth and peace”….so here is our fast for today

FAST FROM

Mourning and replace with JOY!

Sadness and replace with GLADNESS!

Depression and replace with CHEER!

The lies of the adversary and love instead this TRUTH – You are God’s Beloved!

Stress and strife and LIVE TODAY & the rest of  days left  in PEACE

                                    Bought and Brought by God’s Presence!

Happy Thanksgiving Brothers and Sisters!
