SCRIPTURE: Numbers 7; Psalm 23; Acts 27

Acts 27:33-34
With dawn about to break, Paul called everyone together and proposed breakfast: “This is the fourteenth day we’ve gone without food. None of us has felt like eating! But I urge you to eat something now. You’ll need strength for the rescue ahead. You’re going to come out of this without even a scratch!”

OBSERVATION
Fasting is sometimes a response to the trauma around us, but it is always to be a response to deeply felt pain, grief, or stress.

APPLICATION
Don’t spend too much time away. Know when to end the fast, whatever kind of fasting it may be.

PRAYER
God, call me from the table. Call me to the table. Silence my words; give me words to speak. In Christ, amen.
