The Purpose & Benefits of Fasting

The main reason why we fast is to worship God and do His will. It is not a competition or a way of getting something from Him. Fasting helps us bring our flesh under subjection. The main purpose of Fasting can be found is Isaiah 58. Read from verse 4 through 11 and get God’s idea for the purpose of Fasting. Watch the video below for more insight.

God’s Declared Plan & Purpose For Fasting

Purpose of Fasting from Isaiah 58

 Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high.

Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?

Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?

Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.

Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;

10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:

11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.

The realm we live in is a war zone & Spiritual Warfare is the mode of operation. Whether you are simply casting out devils or wrestling/struggling with negative thoughts (MIND), it is time to engage!!

Get excited about prayer & reading the word! AgapEkind incorporates the word into prayer for much power! Remember: The ONLY real enemy you have is not your neighbor but YOU/YOUR FLESH & then the DEVIL!
