Day 4: Skills To Understand

Day 4:  Skills To Understand
We are now going into our 4th day of fasting and it’s my prayer that your body has begun to adjust to the change and that your spirit has begun to sore to new heights.  For those who might have not yet started fasting or still have reservations about fasting I wanted to shed some light on some specifics of fasting in hopes that all might finish this journey with us.
What is Fasting? Biblical fasting is, very simply, denying oneself food for the sake of seeking God and drawing closer to Him.  Prayer is connecting with God. Fasting is disconnecting ourselves from the world. That’s a great way to describe how prayer and fasting work so powerfully together.
Why should I fast? Fasting is like hitting a reset button, both physically and spiritually. As we go about our daily lives, there are things that can build up over time and we can start to lose our spiritual focus. Fasting is like a deep cleaning, both spiritually and physically that helps us take our minds off the things of this world and instead gives us a fresh spiritual focus. It’s all about drawing closer to God.
How do I fast? There are several different ways that you can fast. For the most part, fasting involves abstaining from food or certain types of foods. You can also fast from specific activities or habits, or from other things that keep you connected to the world. Things like TV, video games, social networking, etc. Ask the Lord what your fast should look like and commit to it.
It’s my prayer that all of the Remnant Family will join us in some capacity during this time of fasting.  I’ve always said this, “It’s not how much you do but how consistent you are in what you are doing.” It’s never to late to jump on board.
