Get A Life

 

Fasting reorders our world. Fasting demotes our physical needs to our spiritual needs. It satisfies our spirit over our flesh. It challenges our routine and the distraction of eating as time filler with an appetite for God. Fasting puts God back in His rightful place as Lord and not ourselves or our appetites. Fasting fights IDOLATRY because it is impossible to fast and serve yourself – fasting replaces ourselves as God.
