The Bible said —“Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 17. But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;. 18. That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.” Matthew:6:16-18 (KJV)
Fasting is a spiritual exercise that we embark on as children of God. It is a time that we discipline our flesh in order to have a very close spiritual relationship with our heavenly Father and put our request before him so as to get immediate answer to our prayers.
Fasting has two dimensions, the first is personal fasting and the other is group or corporate fasting. Both fasting are supposed to be secret because it is a relationship between you and God. The corporate fasting people may know that this group or this church is fasting but it is no person’s business if you are involved or not, you will only make yourself available for the programme the church has put in place for the period of the fasting.
Some people may want to destroy your fasting by offering you soft drinks or biscuits, just politely tell them that you have eaten because your morning devotion is also food but spiritual food.
The Bible said —“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” Matthew:4:4 (KJV)
“For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.” John:6:55 (KJV)
“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.” John:6:35 (KJV)
Fasting is a time that very difficult problems are tabled before God and you must have Jesus in your life and you must obey the rules so as to get good result at the end of the fasting.
The Bible said –“Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7. Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? 8. Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward.” Isaiah:58:6-8 (KJV)
Brethren, fasting go beyond denying yourself food you need to live a righteous life and to exhibit the qualities of a child of God. God shall surely bless you as you obey his word. Read your Bible and pray always, please show love to the need and the poor always. Pay your tithe in your local church. Please let Jesus be in your life continually.
Please if this message has touched your life and you have decided to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. Look for bible believing church and fellowship with them but let the pastor of the church know of your decision. God bless you as you obey.
Please pray this prayer of salvation :– My Father and My God, I am a miserable sinner and I have sinned against you and against my neighbour and in every aspect of life. Holy and Righteous Father please wash me with the precious blood of Jesus Christ and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. God give me power to forgive those who have wronged me. Thank you Jesus for saving my life. Give me power to sustain the new life and to inherit eternal life. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Please give sacrificially and unconditionally your special offering and seed of faith for the work of Jesus Christ so as to save souls from death and God shall surely bless you exceedingly for your labour of love and work of faith. For it is more blessed to give than to receive.
