When is the last time you entered into an extended spiritual fast? Fasting is ultimately an expression of humility and dependence on god. Fasting is more about replacing that it is about abstaining. it is about replacing the daily intakes of food, entertainment, and human contact with focused times of prayer, feeding on large amounts of the Word of god and spiritual listening.
One of the great benefits of spiritual fasting is a heightened awareness of god’s presence and power in our lives. it is not that god has moved but that we have. Fasting has a great way of moving us towards a deeper spiritual dependency away from willful self-dependency. Take few minutes reading through the scriptures, insights, and reflective questions to sharpen the spiritual discipline of fasting in your life.
