Daily Devotion 4/25/15

Acts 9:8-9 Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

Saul was led to Damascus. Three days had passed, and for three days he had remained blind. During this time, Saul chose not to eat or drink. So in other words, he was fasting. Fasting in scripture usually happened when someone was seeking the will of God. During a set period of time, they would deprive themselves of nourishment and/or liquids. Saul choose to receive nothing: no food, no drinks. He wanted to clear his heart and find God. He wanted to clear his body and understand the will of God. Fasting is an important practice. So many people make excuses when it comes to fasting. The biggest excuse revolves around not wanting to deprive ourselves of something we want, but sometimes this needs to happen before we can see clearly what God wants.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me see clearly my purpose upon this earth and help me know what to do to fulfill this purpose.
