What is Fasting?

The simplest definition of fasting is

abstaining from something we want or need for a spiritual purpose.

It is a powerful spiritual discipline that the Holy Spirit can use to transform your life and bring breakthrough to your circumstances. While biblically and historically the most common thing to fast is food, you can fast anything. Even fasting sex is mentioned in Scripture (1 Corinthians 7:5).

However, the more you need it, or depend on it, the more powerful the fast in denying your flesh, which is why food is most common.

Types of Fasts

The Normal Fast- The normal means of fasting is abstaining from all food, solid or liquid, but not from water. 

The Absolute Fast- This is abstaining from both food and water.

The Partial Fast- This is simply removing certain items from your diet. Some point to what is popularly referred to as "the Daniel Fast" mentioned in Daniel 10:3.

While abstaining from any one thing (including meats, sweets, television, social media, etc.) for a time has spiritual value, we should all be challenged to a normal fast of abstaining from food for a set time. So, while a partial fast may be a good place to start, explore a more challenging fast for a bigger breakthrough.

Why Should I Fast?

While there are no Biblical laws that command regular fasting, Jesus assumes that Christians will fast when he makes the statement in Matthew 6:16, "When you fast" not “if” you fast. Fasting was a spiritual discipline in both the Old and New Testament eras. For example, Moses fasted to get closer to God, Jesus fasted to begin his ministry, Ezra fasted to mourn sin, Esther fasted for protection, etc. Fasting and prayer can restore the loss of your "first love" for Jesus and result in a more intimate relationship with Christ. Fasting is a biblical way to truly humble yourself in the sight of God (Psalm 35:13; Ezra 8:21). King David said, "I humble myself through fasting." Fasting enables the Holy Spirit to reveal your true spiritual condition, resulting in brokenness, repentance, and a transformed life. The Holy Spirit will quicken the Word of God in your heart and His truth will become more meaningful to you! Fasting can transform your prayer life into a richer and more personal experience.

Fast Duration

There are different lengths of fasting mentioned in Scripture, all the way up to 40 days. Fasting is about the condition of the heart, not the number of days

You can fast 1 day, 3 days, a week, one day a week, one meal a day, etc. Prayerfully decide then begin your commitment. Allow God to sustain you.
