Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Julio C. Ruibal. He said: “Our greatest victories are won on our knees and with empty stomachs.”
Our fasting devotional today is titled “THE DANIEL FAST PRESCRIPTION: FAST AS A SPIRITUAL COMMITMENT” from Dr. Elmer L. Towns in his book “Fasting for Spiritual Breakthrough”.
The Daniel Fast consists of more than just a diet adjustment or the withholding of food. Those who have a weight problem or other physical problems will not be successful with solely a physical solution. The Daniel Fast involves a spiritual commitment to God.
Daniel 1:8 says, “Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself”. Although he bargained with his overseer, the whole process began with a spiritual commitment to God. The Daniel Fast requires a spiritual equation, not just a physical solution.
