Inner Peace

O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You; my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is. Psalm 63:1 Amp

I'm beginning the last 10 days of a 40 day fast.  I feel like I'm being delivered from hidden addictions--things that would harm, enslave and even deceive me.  Things that I never would have noticed had a hold on me until I set them aside.  And now, my body is becoming peaceful.  Like an inner battle that I didn't know was there is silencing.  There was a struggle that I simply needed to walk away from and enter into His rest instead. 

My smell, (discernment), is improving.  My taste is maturing and becoming appreciative of that which is truly good for me.  I'm receiving truth and wisdom and realizing the value of both to a greater depth.  I'm not whining, craving, impulsive or feeling any lack or dissatisfaction.  I am at peace--inside and out. 

I am only hungry and thirsty for my God and Lord Jesus Christ.  The satisfaction I'm getting from Him is beyond anything any food could bring.  And for all this my gratitude, love and worship of Him has grown immensely!
