Feb Fast Day 3: Getting Past Your Quitting Point

Updated: Feb 3




Fasting means crucifying what I refer to as “King Stomach.” And in case you don’t know who King Stomach is, just look down and introduce yourself. You’ve probably heard him rumble in disagreement a time or two! So, consider what has happened to humanity while under the rule of King Stomach.


We can start at the beginning, all the way back to the Garden of Eden. The serpent was cunning and convinced Eve that the forbidden tree was good for food.


When speaking of the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah, people usually focus on the rampant homosexuality in those cities. But that is not all the Bible teaches: “Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy” (Ezekiel 16:49, NKJV).


It’s interesting to note the inhabitants of those cities were not only guilty of homosexuality according to the account in Genesis. As we see here, Sodom and Gomorrah were also guilty of gluttony (fullness of food).


On this third day, you are passing a crucial hurdle on your way to your 21-day goal. So don’t give up—fasting stirs a hunger in your spirit that goes deeper than any temporary hunger you experience in your flesh. And when you hunger for God, He fills you!
