WHY DO WE FAST?
FASTING LEADS TO A DECLUTTERING OF YOUR SOUL. THE THINGS OF THIS WORLD THAT HAVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART, ARE THE VERY THINGS THAT ARE HIGHLIGHTED AND REMOVED DURING THIS PROCESS. FASTING IS A SPIRITUAL CLEANSE THAT CREATES A DEEP SENSITIVITY FOR THE THINGS OF GOD. THROUGH FASTING, WE GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE SAY "GOD, WE WANT MORE OF YOU AND LESS OF THIS WORLD."
"Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled"
HOW DO WE FAST?
THE GOAL IS TO LEARN TO SAY NO TO ______ AND YES TO GOD. THIS SPEAKS OF THE DESPERATION TO SEE GOD MOVE IN OUR LIVES. AND AS A PROMISE GOD MEETS US IN THAT DESPERATION AND IN THAT SACRIFICE.
There are different ways to fast. Fasting is a sacrifice of something that you enjoy, whether food, tv, social media, shopping etc.
