Along with finishing the devotionals for the day on wisdom, I am also reading Joey Bonifacio’s The Mystery of the Empty Stomach. I have seen this small book several times before but have never taken much of an interest in it. However, in the VCF website, it is recommended reading. So I decided to pick it up and study it this week. I have not regretted that impulsive decision.
Pastor Joey Bonifacio’s book is small – only 81 pages in all. It has 10 chapters with 7-8 pages per chapter. It makes use of a lot of white spaces. It’s very easy reading. It looks simple but its size and simplicity is deceiving. Within the pages of this small book is a world of understanding. As I read every chapter, I have come to understand more about fasting. This book spurs me to keep on going. It showed me what fasting is truly about. It took my focus away form the food and hunger and directed me to focus on God alone.
We are midway through our week-long fast. If you find yourself growing weaker and facing the temptation of breaking the fast earlier, read The Mystery of the Empty Stomach. You will know and understand the power of fasting.
If you are encouraged to join this fast, Victory Christian Fellowship has uploaded the manuals and devotions on their website. You can find it here.
This book is available for sale at any VCF bookshops for only P220.00
