Everything God ever did and everything He does today, He does with a goal in mind. Fasting has a goal as well. THE GOAL OF FASTING IS INNER UNITY! When we fast, it puts everything in its proper order. Fasting awakens our spirits. Fasting positions us to be awakened by God’s hands and not human hands.
For many people, the inner being is out of order and that causes us to be fatigued and tired. Remember, we are a spirit first. We possess a soul. We live in a body. Fasting allows everything we are as God’s creation to work together in harmony and not against each other in discord.
Let’s challenge ourselves during this season! During these twenty days of fasting, don’t forget to spend time today reading the Bible, worshipping God in your private time, serving in our church and your community. And set aside that dollar for every member of your family so when we break the fast together on Sunday, January 26th each member of your family will be able to sow in that offering. We will close our 20:20 fast with a worship night for family and friends that Sunday evening. We are anticipating what God is going to do in us and through us during these twenty days.
