I must be honest with you from the get go. Taking the time to fast from insecurity wasn’t completely my idea. Actually, I got the idea from two sources: John Bevere and Joyce Meyer.
In September, I went to the Joyce Meyer Women’s Conference and she spoke on taking a year and fasting from fear. I took it a step further and said a fast from insecurity was in order.
Couple that with John Bevere’s book and curriculum for Relentless, and there you have my motivation for why I am doing this. John talks about if you want free from something you have to fast from it, because you hunger for what you feed on. I am quite tired of feeding on insecurity.
And through both of these sources, I was pointed to the ultimate source to get free. I guess you can say that this is where I am choosing to start:
The Word of God.
And this free printable sums up exactly why I believe the Word of God is the ultimate place to start when you begin a fast from insecurity, or really any fast at all. (Feel free to click on the pdf and download it for your own personal use.)
Won’t you take the time to mediate on this verse with me? Feel the power coming from it to set you free from anything you may be struggling with.
