experiences of fasting
we are not so much
abstaining from food as we are feasting on the word of God.”
– Richard Foster
Hebrews 1: “We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away.”
The Greek term for drift means to slip or flow past or to glide by.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil, my cup overflows. Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
– Psalm 23:5-6
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
– Psalm 23:4
