Fasting is a Christian discipline that helps us spiritually, mentally, emotionally, financially, and physically. It even helps our memory. I Corinthians 9:27a
“But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection.”
Spiritual Help:Psalm 35:13b
“I humbled myself with fasting; and my prayer would return to my own heart.”
Fasting humbles us before God so that we can see and hear spiritually. It brings humility that cares only what God thinks.
“Moreover when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces so that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly I say to you, they have their reward. But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and you Father who sees in secret, will reward you openly.”
When we fast, we put our spirit in charge of our minds. It puts the spirit in the driver’s seat of our thoughts and actions so that we choose the holy things of God.
“Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
God releases supernatural power, favor, and protection over the church when the corporate body fasts together.
