Detoxification is a great way to remove toxins from the body. I have used a juice fast several times to detox. A quick internet search revealed 40 links to various detox diets on just one website.  Everything from the ‘Lemonade Fast’ to the ‘Fruit Flush’.  The suggested time to spend detoxing lasted anywhere from 24-hours to four weeks.  They all promised to help remove toxins from your body, with the ultimate result being a healthier you. 

The general idea of a detox diet is to put something healthy in your body and it will remove the unhealthy stuff you had previously put into it.  I would like to suggest that the way to do a spiritual cleansing of the soul is to put in the Word of God on a regular basis.  Psalm 119:11 says, “Thy word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against Thee.”  If I daily eat a healthy serving of God’s words, His words will help to cleanse the sin out. The suggested time to spend on a spiritual detox?  “…All the days of my life….” Matthew 15:11

One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.  Matthew 15:11

The law of his God is in his heart; his feet do not slip.  Psalm 37:31
