21 day fast

What is Fasting?

Fasting is simply voluntarily setting aside the important things in your life and focusing on something even more important: Jesus, and his vision for your life.

Fasting is abstaining from eating or drinking for an extended period of time…but “eating” and “drinking” can represent so much more. What we “consume” in our bodies, our minds, our spirits and our emotions can distract us from our relationship with God.

Where are you leaning on things other than God to get you through your day? When we “have to have” anything every day, and we are unwilling to give it up, we are likely relying on that “thing” to sustain us instead of depending fully on God.

Fasting is our way of reclaiming those areas of our lives and devoting our attention to God instead. A season of fasting is the perfect time to set aside anything that’s holding you back or standing in the way of seeing God more clearly.

There are many side benefits to fasting, including cleansing your body,  breaking long term addictions, or creating healthy habits. But the real goal of your fast is to grow your relationship with Jesus and experience God in a deeper way.
