Mathew 6:16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may be seen of men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have received their reward.

Around this time of year, a lot of us are fasting. We usually dedicate the first part of the year to God by putting away enjoyable foods and seeking Him.

Just a reminder…

  1. Fasting doesn’t move God. God has already moved with all of our blessings through Jesus Christ (2 Cor. 1:20).
  2. Fasting increases the volume of God. Although our flesh may be craving sweets, our spirits are sensitive to hear God’s voice.
  3. Be ready. As we dedicate our time, body, and energy to seeking God during our fast, it’s important that we stay ready. God may give us an idea, tell us to do a certain task, or tell us to give. Whatever He’s telling us to do, be ready to do it.

These are just some quick reminders to think about during a fast. Enjoy being more intimate with God.
