“But as for me, when they were sick, My clothing was sackcloth; I humbled myself with fasting; And my prayer would return to my own heart.” Psalms 35:13 NKJV

Once the motive is established, the next thing about fasting is what it does in us. The posture of our heart when it seeks God cannot leave us as it found us.

Refraining from food, or delicacies (Daniel 10:3) communicates to our flesh that it is under subjection to us, and we are not its slaves. But more important than this, fasting reveals the things that control us, and that is the ultimate goal for a true disciple of Christ longing for true transformation (2 Corinthians 3:18).

As human beings, oftentimes we cover up certain hindering habits with food, some its social media, for some its shopping sprees while others may become workaholics. At first we may rationalize these flares of pride, anger, bitterness, jealousy or bad temper with the fact that we are hungry, but sooner or later your body adjusts to the fast and it reveals areas in which the help of God should be welcomed.

Child of God, this is why fasting is most resisted even by your own body sending a myriad of signals that you may feel sick, but remember you are feeding on every word of God, and that has the power to transform you into the image of the son. Hallelujah!

Prayer: Father I thank you for this word. I yield to the power of the godliness availed for me. By it I am transformed and adhere to every discipline that exposes what offends your spirit for the purpose of being transformed. I have a ruled spirit and a disciplined heart in all that concerns my father’s business, in Jesus name.
