I was asking the Lord about repentance and He told me that most believers speak to Him/”pray” as if they’re doing a McDonalds drive-through. “Lord, I want this, this and this. Fast.”
And then they speed off in another direction, consumed with their own self-interest and pleasure-seeking.
The word ‘fast’ is interesting. The world and our flesh demands that everything should be “fast”, especially that which gives us fleshly pleasure (eg ‘fast food’). But this is not the kind of “fast” that God requires. When we try to do our relationship with Yahveh “fast” (ie. in this demanding, ‘just make me feel good’ way) it is an insult and abomination to Him.
