The Desires of this world can be so Tempting and often times Appealing in every way.  You have the Negative which would direct you to something you think that is so wonderful.   And than it can turn out to be a Horrific situation.  And the Positive is right in front of you, but you never seem to get a hold of it; because it is too difficult to catch. HALLELUJAH.  Some of us in this world want so much of something and it is, "Much ado about Nothing at All"  And we want it so bad and then we Pray and Fast, and think that the Father will grant us a Blessing.  And his Will never came to Friction.  In the Bible Matthew 6:16-18 it says, "Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.  But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face.  That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly."  Tell all of your Hopes and Dreams to the Father not of the World, and he will Reward you in his Spirit and in Truth.  Thank you Jesus.

Now a lot of us Fast for Selfish reasons; Thoughtless and Irrational.  That doesn't make any sense none what so ever.  Like for instances Fasting for someone to have Strife in there life; Bunch of Confusion.  Or either because you want to have so much money being Rich.  But the thing is being Rich spiritually is like having all of the Money in the World.  Remember the Father can supply all of your needs according to his Riches & Glory.  (Adapted Philippians 4:19)

Listen are you Fasting for all of the right reasons, or you're just Fasting because you need to have a Quick Fix?  We'll give Help and Charity to an individual that is in need.  And then we run off our Mouths to let everyone know what we're doing.  And that is because some of us want to Boast and Brag about what we have done.  "Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high."  (Isaiah 58:4)   What done suppose to be in Secret, between you and the Father. Yes God!!  You see, Fasting is a form of Felt Need;  Bereavement, Loneliness and Money Worries (Debt).  It's not about being Rich and having all the Money in  the World.  Fast for things are needed to help other's and yourself.  Stop with all the needless things and start Fasting for the Suffering & Crisis for our Brethern's and Sister's.  When Jesus Pray and Fast in Gethsemane that is might be delivered from Suffering and Death.  That was the intimacy that he had with God Will.  When you see someone that is Suffering Pray and than Fast for your Brethern' and Sister.  Christ done it for us in his name; it was the BLOOD.  God Bless you all.   Amen, Amen, Amen
