Today is the 20th day of my prayer and fasting. It is by God's grace that He sustained me this far.
During this prayer and fasting season, I've learned plenty of lessons. Commit by faith is one of the most important lessons. On the third evening of my prayer and fasting, I was struggling with hunger. The aroma of home cook roast dinner nearly convicted me to give up. However, by God's grace, I chose to isolate myself in my prayer closet.
I couldn't concentrate at all. As I closed my eyes, my mind wandered into the kitchen. It was torturing. I told myself to press in and commit by faith, and stay focus on the goal.
God didn't fail me, and instead, He honoured my commitment. The next day, something supernatural happened within me. I broke a bad habit, which was also my addiction to gaming. I uninstalled and deleted all the games on my phone, and I found myself ultimately set free. Suddenly, all burdens and weights lifted from my back! I didn't experience any form of withdrawal. It was an effortless effort of overcoming gaming addiction. I found myself having at least average four hours daily to enjoy other tasks such as reading and studying, having a better quality of rest and sleep, more time with my wife and children, fewer mood swings and sharper with my thinking and concentration.
As I look back, I am glad I chose to "commit by faith" even though my flesh told me to give up. The effort of committing by faith leads to other experiences I have in God.
As I look back, I am glad I chose to "commit by faith" even though my flesh told me to give up. The effort of committing by faith leads to other experiences I have in God. Up until today, God is still showing Himself to me in some unimaginable ways. I'll share them, one post at a time.
