What Is Fasting?

Fasting brings a person into a deeper, intimate, and more powerful relationship with the Lord. Every Christian has three duties to perform during their Christian walk: give, pray and fast. Biblical fasting always has to do with eliminating distractions for a spiritual purpose; it hits the reset button of our soul and renews us from the inside out. Fasting also enables us to celebrate the goodness and mercy of God and prepares our hearts for all of the good things God desires to bring into our lives. The discipline of fasting will release the anointing, favor and the blessings of God into the life of every Christian believer. Your thoughts and spirit will become uncluttered, and you will become more sensitive to the voice of God. Fasting also brings about a transformation that will transform how you live your life. Also, your private discipline will bring you rewards here on the earth and in Heaven.

When you give God your first through fasting, prayer and giving, you set the course for your life!

Benefits of the Fast

1. Heightened Sensitivity to hear from God (Exodus 34:28) – Moses received supernatural revelation from God at this time of fasting.

Exodus 34:28 KJV28And he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments.

2. Victory (2 Chronicles 20:1-4) – Jehosophat received instructions/divine intervention.

II Chronicles 20:1-4 KJV – 1It came to pass after this also, that the children of Moab, and the children of Ammon, and with them other beside the Ammonites, came against Jehoshaphat to battle.  2Then there came some that told Jehoshaphat, saying, There cometh a great multitude against thee from beyond the sea on this side Syria; and, behold, they be in Hazazontamar, which is Engedi.  3And Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the LORD, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah.  4And Judah gathered themselves together, to ask help of the LORD: even out of all the cities of Judah they came to seek the LORD.

3. Ability to Resist Temptation (Luke 4:1-4) – Jesus was tempted at all points as we were, yet He knew no sin.

Luke 4:1-4 KJV1And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread. And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.

4. Strongholds Broken (Isaiah 58:5-6)

Isaiah 58:5-6 KJV5Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD?  6Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
