Fasting is the practice of choosing to abstain from food for a certain period of time. It’s a spiritual discipline, that helps us to become more like Jesus and to draw closer to the heart of God. Fasting helps us break the power of the flesh in our life – our desires, sins, and cravings – and to feed on the Holy Spirit.
“Fasting helps us to express, to deepen, and to confirm the resolution that we are ready to sacrifice anything, even ourselves, to attain the Kingdom of God.” – Scot McKnight.
In summary, fasting is not just about getting from God but getting to God. While fasting is choosing to go without food, you can choose to abstain from certain things during the fasting period. We recommend prayerfully considering which practice is best for you at this time.
