Fasting is a time for spiritual growth. Have you ever tried a fast for something other than losing weight or because of a surgery or fleshly need?
Fasting is biblical. It’s not the easiest of disciplines but not the hardest thing either.
Fasting can provide a close time with your Heavenly Father. It can help you feel fresh, renewed, and cleansed in your body, mind, and soul.
As you turn your desire to God and deny your physical desire from food, you give yourself over to our Lord for a time and purpose of Him ministering to your soul.
Take time to read Isaiah 58 if you wish to do a spiritual fast. Read it each day of your fast for the purpose, promise, and truth it brings.
This passage of scripture describes the kind of fasting God desires, the kind He has chosen, and for what fasting is intended to accomplish. It includes promises for those who are fasting.
Please don’t fast trying to “twist God’s arm” to what you want to be accomplished or to do something you feel is necessary for you or someone else. When you fast and deny yourself, it positions the Lord as everything in your life. You TRUST Him.
It’s amazing to experience a true spiritual fast in your life. Pray about this and ask God to lead you in it and threw it. He will, and you will be so refreshed in your mind, body, and spirit. It truly works.
