The heart of this website is a daily devotional experience entitled EAT, designed as a practical tool to guide believers through a 40-day period of feasting on the Word of God.
Three times a day--breakfast, lunch, and dinner--the believer will dine with the Lord, developing a desire for Him above anything else, including food. Throughout Scripture, the Lord used mealtime as an opportunity for teaching and training in righteousness. As the Israelites hungered and thirsted in the desert, He revealed Himself as Sustainer; as the disciples sat and ate with Him in the upper room, He revealed Himself as Savior. . . . .
For the humble, repentant, and wholehearted believer, the Lord can accomplish a lifetime of transformational work in just 40 days. It is the prayer and hope of this ministry, that as each believer dines upon the Word of God--seasoned with prayerful communication and heartfelt repentance--the Lord will purify them, prepare them, and provide an army of faithful and holy warriors fully equipped to set the world on fire for Christ and to fulfill His Great Commission.
I will be taking part in a partial fast, but the website points out that if you do not feel called to fast from food, you could fast from other distractions keeping you from seeking God wholeheartedly, such as television.
There is a beautiful introductory slide show on the website's home page, and the site offers a wealth of information on fasting. Once you register, you will be able to access The Temple portion of the web site, which offers the 3 devotionals for each day, as well as a place to journal your experiences. If you know of friends who do not have Internet access, the devotions are also available in PDF format. You can also view the testimony of my sister, Kathryn Wells, on the site.
I wish you a blessed Lenten season and hope to see you at the Lord's table!
