Purpose And Mechanics of Fasting

Intimacy with the Lord should be the utmost desire of every Christian and fasting affords us a tremendous opportunity to develop an unparalleled intimacy with the Lord. Only genuine spiritual hunger will draw us into the place of true intimacy and encounter with the Lord! Fasting is a demonstration of an intense yearning for God. During fasting, you forsake the seemingly most important need of life %u2013 food %u2013 for the sole purpose of seeking God%u2019s face. As you sincerely seek God%u2019s face, you receive the added benefit of experiencing His hand. If you can ignore food in spite of the body%u2019s cravings for it, for the exclusive purpose of seeking God%u2019s face, then God undoubtedly becomes your paramount desire! True Biblical fasting is directing your hunger and thirst and passion after God and the things of God. Fasting is a launching pad for divine revelation. It is the highway to divine illumination! When we get the revelation and insight about this spiritual discipline, we will not %u2018have%u2019 to fast %u2013 we will actually %u2018want%u2019 to do it! In addition to illuminating Biblical truths on fasting, the mechanics and scientific aspects have been carefully elucidated in this manual to help alleviate any fears one may have about unsafe approaches to fasting.
