What is a Daniel Fast? - Day 2

January 08, 2018

Welcome to Day 2 of the 21 Day fast! We pray your first day went well and you came out of it with a hunger for the Lord. As we do every January, we give our first fruits to the Lord. We count on literally millions from all over the world to fast and pray together and spend time with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. On the blog, each day we will look at a different topic that people have asked about in past 21-day fasts.

 

Today’s Topic

What is a Daniel Fast?

The Daniel Fast, which is a very popular fast, is based on scripture found in a few different verses of the book of Daniel, but none greater than in the first chapter of Daniel. During the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, who was king of Babylon at the time, several Israelites, including Daniel were asked to join the king’s service, making them eligible to partake of the royal food and wine presented. The problem Daniel faced was that this same food and drink were also offered up to the Babylonian’s idols that were worshipped during that day.

 

Daniel 1:8 explains that Daniel did not want to defile himself with the king’s meat and drink. It goes on to say Daniel asked that he, along with three others, be put on a 10-day test, eating nothing but vegetables and drinking only water. Then let their appearances be compared to the king’s other servants who ate the king’s food, and see who was more fit. After the ten days, their appearance and features were much better than the other servants. "As for these four young men, God gave them knowledge and skill in all literature and wisdom; and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams" (Daniel 1:15).

 

Daniel proved by his actions that this type of “fast” had all the earmarks of giving someone greater health and a sharper mind. The Daniel Fast is a biblically based partial fast that omits any type of meats, sugars, and processed foods. Sorry, but steaks, cookies, and your favorite ice cream are three items you will not find at your local Daniel Fast restaurant franchise. On the menu, however, you will find fruits, vegetables, and water. To put it simply, if it comes out of the ground, it is on the Daniel fast menu.

 

Daniel Fast Specifics

While we agree that the emphasis written so far is on what you are to eat and not eat, this by no means is meant to be legalistic in nature or that a particular set of rules exist or must be followed. We fast because we seek a more intimate relationship with God. We fast because we want to honor God with our first fruits of the new year, and to thank Him for what He has already done and what He will do in our lives in the future. We fast because for many of us we have lost sight of who God is and need to come back to Him, to put Him first in everything we do (Matt 6:33). We fast to praise his worthy name and the investment He made for us in saving mankind—the sacrifice of his son, Jesus.

 

With this said, we should look at a few specifics concerning the Daniel Fast. Education is crucial to understand fasting and for you to have the best possible experience with your individual fast. While each topic listed below is a chapter within itself, and certainly not the definitive list of all food types, we will give some very basics. None of the following are fasting disqualifiers, and in fact, a critical and judgmental spirit is a far greater danger. However if you must err, err to the side of grace. Most important of all is to stick to your fast to get the full benefits you desire.

 

Spices and Condiments

The technical answer is that the Daniel Fast implies only food that comes from the ground. However, since salt and most spices come from the ground or plants, technically these fall into this category as acceptable. A salad dressing, however, or ketchup and mustard, are processed foods. Oil and Vinegar is a much better option. Look at it this way: when in doubt, don’t. (Matt 23:24). Moderation, wisdom, and the right motives will give you the greater purpose of what your fast is calling you to do.

 

Dairy

The technical answer to this question would be no. Dairy products come from an animal and are not plant based. However, there are numerous plant-based substitutes such as soy or almond that you can use if you need help adding flavor or texture to your food.

 

Coffee and Tea

Oh, I know many of you have been waiting for this category. Coffee comes from a bean and tea is plant-based as well, however with caffeine there is a risk when it comes from a change in diet. Caffeine is a stimulant and may have a different effect with a more plant-based diet. On the other hand, many people who fast insist on eliminating their favorite drink as part of the sacrifice. In the strictest understanding of a Daniel Fast, if Daniel didn’t eat or drink it, we shouldn’t either. Do what you feel is the right thing for you. A quick side note: anytime you stop drinking caffeine, expect a strong headache for the first three days as your body rids itself of the toxins you have consumed over time.

 

Artificial Sweeteners

Artificial Sweeteners may make food or drink more palatable, but the word artificial should be a give-away. Even medical science agrees that artificial sweeteners are unhealthy and can actually be worse than sugar, let your heart be your guide and let the Holy Spirit do the tugging on your use or not. Don’t forget, fasting is a sacrifice.

 

Diet Soda

Yes, sugar free sodas contain no sugar, but they certainly were not a part of the fast Daniel talked about. You will need to exercise your free will mixed with wisdom. The goal of a fast is to deny the flesh, so eliminating soda from your fast would make sense. Denying yourself is part of the process and sticking to water and some real fruit juice would make logical sense.

 

Protein

Many people on a fast are concerned they will not get enough protein, which is normal for cell structure and function. Naturally, protein is found in meat, eggs, and milk, three of the fasting “no’s.” As you recall, these come from animals not from the ground. There are alternatives to these to receive the protein you are afraid of losing: almonds, tofu, and beans. Legumes, such as a variety of beans, lentils, and peas, are a great source of fiber, while fruits and vegetables are a good source of vitamins and minerals.

 

Supplements

As each person’s health issues and concerns are unique to only him or her there is no single answer that fits every person. When it comes to vitamins and other supplements, different people have more sensitive stomachs than others. Use wisdom and let your stomach be your guide and take it slow. Follow the recommended instruction about taking medication or vitamins with food, and always consult your physician before fasting if you are on prescribed medication or have health concerns.

 

As it relates to the Daniel Fast, you will likely be getting more vitamins and minerals the way God intended, through the healthy foods you eat!

2018 is going to be a breakthrough year bc I'm ALL IN.

account_circle Oina Tupua

This is day 1 for me on the Daniel fast for 21 days. I am fasting for a lot of reasons. But the crucial reason is to have a closer and meaningful walk with God this year. To strengthen my resolve and increase my desire to thirst and hunger for His Word and Will to guide my life from this year onward to walk the true purpose of my life. I also fast for a breakthrough on health issues that I have had for 5 years now. For my feet to be healed and I will be able to walk again without pain and tendonitis, for my wrist to be healed, for chronic fatique that comes over me from time to time. These issues have prevented me from getting back to a job, and have prevented me from serving in any calling in the church fully. I want to give my life to God this year, to walk on my faith and not my issues and barriers. Please pray for me this year...I am going out on a leap of faith, and have signed up to do Internship with my church this year. I pray for God to intervene and give me the strength physically and mentally and spiritually to finish my internship this year, with a faith made stronger, and a more solid relationship with God.

account_circle Denise Davis

This is day 1 for me on the Daniel fast. Please pray for me as I seek to build a solid relationship with the Lord. I usually have a difficult time in the beginning of a fast. With your prayers and support I know that I will succeed. I will be praying for everyone on this fast. God bless

account_circle Wanda Gardner

This fast will be the best one yet. This is the Year of Holy Spirt and Fire. I'm believing for a more intimate walk with God, and to be well favored, and skillful in all wisdom, and endowed with knowledge, intelligence and discernment and to be quick to understand. I want to operate in God's peace and rest in knowing He will fight my battles. I want my love and passion for the things of God to be restored. I know God hears my prayers, so I know that He will keep my two boys so they will grow up to be Men of Valor, and my husband will began to cry out for Jesus with massive hunger and thirst with great zeal and tenacity for God with Love.

account_circle Angela Mwape

This is my third time in the 21-day fast ...allow me to share my experience as this might encourage someone - I don’t know . 1st time I was fasting for a job in a foreign land and to my dismay it didn’t happen but God did something ...he made the transition of leaving that country so smooth that I was ready for change when I went back to my country . The relocation was smooth and the pain bearable. Funny enough God allowed me to revisit the country on holiday and I had such a good time in comparison to when I was living there . 2nd time - I was basically fasting for my relationship with my now ex. This relationship had such a stronghold on me that I was ready to risk it all and be with him . Truth is I was too weak to let go even when I saw everything wrong with it but I wanted God to intervene and change him . To my dismay it never happened and I did something I thought I would never do I simply left the relationship and never ever looked back . It was not my power but God’s power at work in me . 3rd time ( this 2018 fast ) .....am at that place where I want God to guide me , not my will but his will be done over my life . Of course I do have hopes and desires that I have shared with him but am leaving them in Gods hands . Praying for open doors and breakthroughs . 2018 is my year to rise and soar high . I don’t know what God has in store but I know he will never leave me nor forsake me . All those years the locusts have taken , God is giving them back to me . The enemy is returning my stuff a 100 fold increase . Sometimes what we pray for is not what we get but trust me God gives answers that make us content and at peace . He’s a good good father . He restores dreams and visions . He gives strength to the week . I have never seen the righteous forsaken nor their children begging for bread . Yes what I wanted may not have been answered but I have seen the hand of God at work . He’s taken me places I thought I never go and caused my heart to leap with Joy and smile again . I feel like Sarah I am not in a relationship at the moment and am not earning a whole lot of money as I was earning before but guess what - these things are not my source of happiness or joy . But I am at peace and I have unspeakable joy in me . This joy that I have - the world didn’t give it to me ( job , car , money etc ) and the world won’t take it away . Hope be my anchor day after day I need my Jesus every day . He’s increasing in me so that I may decrease ....2018 we are going strong ...it’s blind faith all the way . I don’t know what it is but am praising God in advance.

This is my 6th corporate fast with Free Chapel and after every fast, i see doors opens and blessings come that I did not expect. Unfortunately 2017, due to my own bad decisions, i faced many challenges. I was more tuned in to the enemy's voice rather than Gods voice. I am so glad this FAST is here and I am able to partake with the church. I do want more of HIM and less of me. Please keep me in your prayers! Soraya

account_circle Vanessa Anrhony

I'm thanking God first for answered prayers from a past fast. As I re-read my journal about praying for your marriage, I was excited to find that God had done more than I had asked.

Struggling today! First, getting back into the "back to school" routine is challenging even without the fast. Second, I like eating! My flesh is very unhappy; it's hard to focus on the Lord today, even though I fully understand the benefits of fasting. Third, the fast [as always] falls on my birthday. Today I am feeling very blue that there will be no celebration or getting together with friends.For some reason, that really bothers me today. BUT I am determined to seek the Lord in spite of it all.

account_circle Ultressa Diamond

This morning started out better. After I studied last night I got a good nights sleep. Woke up around 5 am ready to go...Felt closer to the Lord...Read...and took notes on Philippians chapter 4 and will meditate on this several times today...also prayed and thanked the Lord as I did so...The Bible says we are to pray with thanksgiving and God gives us His peace...I lovethat:) Something interesting stuck out. First be content in WHATEVER state I am. Second the Word says...be full and be hungry...Does that mean keep myself full of God in my life yet still hunger for more? I am so thankful for Gods Word and the ability to seek Him in prayer...Peace and much love to you all and have a great day.
