Real fast

When you fast, don’t make it obvious….so people will admire you…no one needs to know you are fasting except your Heavenly Father. Matt6:16-18

Fasting can be a religious exercise or a spiritual experience that makes us ready for the blessing God already wants to bestow. It’s not a hunger strike to get God to do something he doesn’t already want to do for us. It is a declaration of dependence on God rather than on all the things we stuff into our lives (including but not exclusively our mouths).

Lord, guide my heart in all I offer You and all I ask of You.
