(from Day 15 of 21 of my first fast, re: unexplained depression)
Derek Prince on YouTube. ** Old, wise, dead guy from WW II.
Mr Prince said that a feeling of darkness or depression can be part of the spiritual warfare of a fast. See it as a good sign. It means that you are becoming a concern to the devil and he is calling in extra forces to mess with you.
This teaching encouraged me to a surprising degree.
I guess I feel normal and explained now, ya know?
I am trusting
God the Father and
Jesus my Warriorprince and
the Holy Spirit who I don’t understand but I really appreciate and who is mysterious as heck..
that this fast can break the yoke of oppression over the McCoy line, like in Isaiah 58:6.
I need God’s help to keep my will sharp and focused and headed towards my goal of finishing my appointed fast
and then trust God that He’s gonna do all the other stuff with the thousandyearold demons and junk.
I try to speak out any scriptures or prayers that come to mind. I don’t know what else to do.
I feel kind of green.
It’s still just as hard to not eat, (I guess thats the point)
but I’m not worried about myself now
that I know now that it’s common to feel darkness during a big fast.
