What to Do When You Are Struggling to Maintain a Fast (Fasting Edition #105)

Our fasting quote of encouragement today is from Jentezen Franklin. He said: “Fasting gets you in a position to receive personal blessing and guidance for your life, and also for God to use you to reach others with His power.”

Our fasting devotional today is titled “HOW TO HANDLE STRUGGLING TO MAINTAIN A FAST” from Bill Bright, founder of Campus Crusade for Christ.

Fast one moment at a time. Remember, you’re fasting to seek God’s face. Humble yourself. I encourage an individual to realize Jesus not only did it himself, but also commanded us to do what He did.

Fasting is good for your physical body. Fasting is a marvelous way of bringing healing to your body. When Satan seeks to discourage and frustrate you, just fast and pray — the Lord Jesus will help you.

I recommend water and fruit and vegetable juices without added sugar. I wouldn’t recommend water only without medical attention.

Now, let’s take this time to break up the fallow ground in our lives. Hosea 10:12 states, “Sow to yourselves in righteousness, reap in mercy; break up your fallow ground: for it is time to seek the Lord, till he come and rain righteousness upon you.”
