Biblical Fasting

The Word of God and prayer are so essential for us to maintain our victory. These are weapons of mass destruction for the devil, our enemy,  who is out to kill, steal and destroy. But there is a third weapon that is less used and requires a lot of self discipline and fervor of believers and that is FASTING. I think a lot of people don't fast because, number one, they have not been taught to do so and then some who have been taught that it's right, have not tried it because of the requirements involved. Many think that one has to go without eating for many days. They think of Moses or Jesus who fasted for forty days, and they get cold feet. Then there are others who say that their illness keeps them from fasting. People with diabetes, for instance. Strange, I have seen these same people fast for medical purposes, such as tests or surgery, and they survived. You see, the enemy knows the strength of this powerful weapon and he does not want God's people to engage in any spiritual exercise that is going to give them more power, ore direction or a closer walk with God. So, he lies to them and they listen, making numerous excuses for not obeying God in the matter of fasting. Fasting means to abstain from food or drink for a set period of time for spiritual purposes. It is one of the best ways I have found to find God''s will, to obtain direction or to overcome a besetting sin. Let us look at the Word, not to prove any point, but to see the results that biblical characters obtained when they fasted. After all, this is what we need; results, fruit, progress in our walk with God. These examples are in the Word for our learning and admonition. If we want to reach our goals, then let us learn from others. The men and women in these passages we are about to explore, got results. If it worked for them, it will work for us, as God is no respect of persons (Acts 10:34
