Giving Up To Get Up!

Give Up To Get Up!

There is a passage in the Old Testament book of Daniel that talks about Daniel’s fast.  Daniel was heartbroken and gave up the very satisfying things of life, so that he might experience a greater satisfaction that comes not from the earth, but from the Heavens.  He stayed at it for three weeks.  For twenty-one days he gave up, so that He could get up!

“2 In those days, I, Daniel, had been mourning for three entire weeks.  3 I did not eat any tasty food, nor did meat or wine enter my mouth, nor did I use any ointment at all until the entire three weeks were completed.  4 On the twenty-fourth day of the first month, while I was by the bank of the great river, that is, the Tigris,  5 I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz.  Daniel 10:2-5

You may be going through a tough time, facing some discouragement or just be feeling blah!  Why not think about what you could give up that would help you get up!  There is something in all of our lives and when we are willing to make the sacrifice, it is amazing the results it will produce in our lives!

Go ahead and give it a try!  Stick with it for the next 21 days and see if God will not come into your life and give you a lift!
