Spiritua Side 6
Spiritual Guidelines for those who are fasting: Enter into fasting with positive faith. God requires faith of this kind in all who seek Him. Hebrews 11:6 states, “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.” If you determine to seek God diligently by fasting, you have a scriptural right to expect that God will reward you. Matthew 6:18 states, “...your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.”
Romans 10:17 says, “Faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.” So your fasting should be based upon the conviction that God’s Word enjoins this as a part of normal Christian discipline.
Don’t wait for some emergency to drive you to fasting. It is better to begin fasting when you are spiritually “up” rather than when you are feeling down or depressed. The law of progress in God’s kingdom is: from “strength to strength” (Ps 84:7); from “faith to faith” (Romans 1:17); and from “glory to glory” (2 Corinthians 3:18).
During your fast, devote plenty of time to Bible reading. When possible, read a portion of scripture before each period of prayer. The Psalms are particularly helpful. Read them out loud, identifying yourself with the prayers, the praises, and the confessions contained within them.
