Most people go without food during a diet or when they’re too busy to eat, but this isn’t biblical fasting. what does fasting mean?
Our sincerity and attitude play important roles in biblical fasting. Before beginning ask yourself, “Am I confident that my desire to fast is God-given? what are the spiritual objectives in this fast? Personal sanctification and consecration? Intercession? Special burdens? Is there any hidden desire to impress others?” when you’ve honestly answered these questions you’re ready to begin.
Now that you’ve decided to fast and are properly motivated, you still may not know how to begin the fast, or how long it should last.
