Fasting and the Presence of God
Isaiah 58:6, 11 ― “the kind of fasting I have chosen…he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.
A Thought On Fasting
Are you surprised by your fasting experience? God loves to surprise his children by satisfying them with his presence.
"The rewards of fasting are not usually instantaneous, but are experienced with the passage of time. They come as a surprise, as in the middle of a worship service when my soul is touched and mysteriously satisfied. Or when I am reading the Word and my inner being is lifted beyond this world with a new perspective. Or when I am praying and my heart experiences a peace that is inexplicable. I have found that the rewards ultimately lead to a more intimate and substantial experience with the God who created me, saves me and fills me."
Father in heaven, I want to experience your guiding and strengthening hand in my life and ministry. There is nothing like knowing that the hand of the Lord is in my life. Today through my fasting, I incline my heart to you and your ways. In Jesus' name, amen.
