Day 8 ~ 21 Days of Prayer & Fasting

Fasting sheds light on our future!

Today's Daily Reading: Daniel chapter 8

Daniel had some amazing visions of the end of all time.  Imagine God selecting you to see things concerning the earth, nations, and the entire human race.  Things that wouldn't happen for thousands of years.  Daniel knew things about the last days that the apostles struggled to grasp.  That puts foretelling the future in an entirely different light.

What if God wanted to share with you things concerning your future?  Now, I'm not talking about apocalyptic events like Daniel's vision, but simple wisdom and understanding about your future.  What if you were clear on your purpose?  What if you knew why you were on this planet in the first place?  Imagine how confident you would live your life!

Jesus told Daniel in chapter 8:17, "You must understand that the events you have seen in your vision relate to the time of the end."

King David prayed in Psalm 39:4 "Show me, O Lord, my life's end and the number of my days."

God desires for us to have great clarity about our lives.  We aren't going to know every detail and we probably won't feel much certainty about the decisions we make either.  Yet, we can be 100% clear as to what our lives are about and the steps in life we need to make.  Daniel received a clear vision, but he was still uncertain about it all.

As you fast and pray, ask God to open your eyes.  Ask Him for clarity concerning your calling and purpose.  Then, watch as God shines His holy light on you and the windows of heaven open on your future.
