When the Holy Spirit calls us to fast, He will strengthen us and give us the ability to carry it out. Here's a few key tips to assist through the fasting process.
CLARIFY THE PURPOSE OF YOUR FAST
Has the church called a fast? Are you seeking clarity for a particular situation? Are you desiring breakthrough in an area of life? Identifying the purpose of your fast will help you to stay on track throughout your fast.
KEEP AN OPEN HEART
We must come into this time with a humble heart, acknowledging that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. When we approach God this way, our hearts are open to the word that God will release towards us.
SCHEDULE YOUR DAY FOR SUCCESS
When we fast, the removal of food and other distractions is most beneficial when it is replaced with spending time in God’s presence. Where possible, try to schedule extra time to worship, pray, read your Bible and journal things God is speaking to your heart.
