One Thing

There are a million and one things that we could all be doing right now but practically everyone I meet who happens to be a Christian seems to be doing the same thing - fasting. Some are on absolute fasts where they are only consuming water, others are on partial fasts which includes the Daniel Fast, where they have chosen to abstain from particular foods. This to me is incredibly exciting as we know that great power is made available through prayer and fasting (Matt 9:29)and with so many members of the body of Christ participating in this at the same time we can only expect great and wonderful things to happen.
Just like Mary we have chosen the one thing that is needful and have to submitted ourselves to God, in humbleness of heart and like David our desire is to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple (Psalm 27:4). According to Hebrews 11:6 we know we will not go unrewarded!
