Believers' Prayer Meeting with The Saint | R 16 W 3 D 2.


Welcome back The Upper Room. So glad you came.

Happy Holy Fig Tuesday.

We continue with our meditations in The Book of Daniel. We are on verses 2 and 3 of Chapter 10, The Daniel Fast. It reads,

"In those days I, Daniel, was mourning for three full weeks. I ate no pleasant food, no meat or wine came into my mouth, nor did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled."

We continue with our meditations and discussion on "A Fasted Life" compared to "Intermittent Fasting," as we dissect Isaiah 58. We move to verses 10-12. It reads,

10 If you extend your soul to the hungry
And satisfy the afflicted soul,
Then your light shall dawn in the darkness,
And your darkness shall be as the noonday.

11 The Lord will guide you continually,
And satisfy your soul in drought,
And strengthen your bones;
You shall be like a watered garden,
And like a spring of water, whose waters do not fail.

12 Those from among you
Shall build the old waste places;
You shall raise up the foundations of many generations;
And you shall be called the Repairer of the Breach,
The Restorer of Streets to Dwell In.

These verses continue with the string of blessing that is ours as we get our lives right with God. God is not interest in the old wife's fable, "that we are all sinner." That is the excuse used by dead woods. Those are not interested in pressing, nor will have others enter. 

God wants us Holy, and we can be Holy. We are no fishes in the water that cannot but be wet. We are called into a Holy fellowship, and God is building us into His own house, a holy house. It might be impossible with men, but it is possible with God. The real question is, will we let Him.

Verses 9 - 12 re-echo Psalm 23 to us. God is our Shepherd and we are the sheep of His pasture. He is our faithful Shepherd. And, He is faithful. The real question is if we will remain sheep in His pasture. 

Psalm 23 and these verse re-echo the benefits we get when we keep our relationship with The Shepherd intact. The onus is ours. God has done His part. The question is, will we did  ours. The next move is ours.

The Saint.
