Some thoughts on fasting ...
Fasting is NOT to get things from God, but to GET NEAR God.

Fasting is not always easy, but once you get started it can be refreshing.  All you need to get started is a desire to strengthen your relationship with God.

The first step to any fast is admitting your need for God.  Giving up food is an outward action for an inward commitment.  Fasting for God requires sacrifice and discipline.

Fasting also helps remove obstacles that so easily get in the way of fully focusing on Him.

Removing the food or WHATEVER you choose to give up within the specified time frame will help free your mind, so you can meditate on God.

In order to be effective, you must also pray during that time.  Praying to God and fasting is a powerful weapon against adversity.

A fast for God doesn’t have to be all day.  It can be for one meal or not smoking that cigarette, giving up that favorite candy bar etc.  Basically, you will be sacrificing something that is important to you.

Some results of fasting are the tearing down strongholds in your life and the lives of your loved ones.  It also causes divine power to loose the chains of bondage and set the captive free.

If you want to see God’s power move in your life, remain committed for the full period of time. During the fast, it’s not necessary to tell everyone what you’re doing.  If you fast for man’s praise and not God’s approval, then your fast is done in vain.

Jesus Christ wrote in Matthew 6:16-18, “Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of sad countenance; for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast.  Verily I say unto you, they have their reward.”  “But, thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face; That thou, appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.”

Don’t forget to pray for the areas in the back of your church calendar and for the congregation to come together in unity, so our hearts and minds are ready to receive the harvest God sends to Turning Point with Agape Love.

Remember:  God is faithful and true and willing and able to help you.
