5 Pointers for Successful Fasting

Have you heard of fasting and felt guilty because you haven’t done it? Or have you tried and failed? Read this blog and destroy the guilt and ignorance today.

Fasting is showing God that He’s even more important to you than what you are willing to give up.

It is supposed to be a normal part of the Christian life. Most often, people fast from food and pray during the time they’d enjoy a meal.

When you first begin fasting, the hunger pains can remind you of how serious you are for that which you are fasting.

For example, I can fast to show God how seriously I want Him to answer a question I have about a specific thing. For instance, “Lord, do you want me to take this new job?”


ONE

When you fast, it’s a good idea to know specifically why you are fasting and for how long. When you know those things, it helps keep you focused and doesn’t give the enemy room to try and make you quit or compromise.

TWO

It’s okay to tell someone in spiritual authority in your life about the fast so they can help you and pray for you.

THREE

Don’t think about what you will eat or enjoy when the fast is over. Concentrate and pray about what you want to see God accomplish during this fast.

FOUR

If you aren’t fasting water, make sure you drink plenty of water. Fasting often detoxes your body and water helps flush toxins from your system.

FIVE

Journal what you see and learn during the time you set apart to God. You want to remember what it is you received while fasting as well as keep track of what unfolds in the future.


Matthew 6:17-18

But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Mark 2:19

And Jesus said to them, “Can the friends of the bridegroom fast while the bridegroom is with them? As long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

Mark 2:20

But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken from them, and then they will fast in those days.


Pray Aloud

Jesus, I want to know more about fasting. Please show me what it means to You. I want to fast something at some time. I ask You for the grace to do it and the understanding of when and how I am to fast.
