2l Day Daniel Fast
A Lifestyle Fasting was never meant to be the rare practice that it is today among Christians. After Jesus called his disciples, He gave them their first public teaching in the Sermon on the Mount. In it He explained to thern the kingdom of God its laws and life. He provided the pattern by which each of us is to live as a child of God. This pattem mentions three specific responsibilities: giving, praying arrd fas ting,
In this passage Jesus said, *When you give...", t.When you pray" and"Vl/hen you fast" (See Matthew 6). He made it obvious that fasting is to be aregilar part of the Christian life. He did not say "rf you fast" but "when you fast." We are to eive as much focus and priority to fastine as we do to eivine and praying.
Making prayer and fasting aregdar,habitual part of our lives is central to a life full of the Holy Spirit: "2aAnd those who belong to Christ Jesus (the Messiah) have crucified the flesh (the godless human nature) with its passions and appetites and desires.2sl|we live by the [HolyJ Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit" (Galatians 5:24-25, emphasis added).
Following Jesus' Example Jesus doesn't expect us, His modern day disciples, to do something He didn't do. Before launching His ministry, Jesus spent time in fasting and prayer. How can we expect to launch into the coming year without the same? If the Word of God-the One who spoke this world into beins-found fastine necessary in God's economy. then who are we to tr.y to live bl/ any other standard? Who are we to think that we can attempt to live without it?
If Jesus could have accomplished all He came to do without fasting, why would IIe fast? He knew there were supernatural things that could only be released that way.
in John l3,"You address me as 'Teacher' and 'Master,' and rightly so. That is what am.,I've laid down apatternfor you. What I've done, you do...If you understand wltat I'm telling you, act like it - and live a blessed ffi." Jesus said
The Blessed Life Beloved, I want to live a blessed life, don't vou? And blessings are released in the supernatural realm when we fast and pray! o Fasting is not optional, it's a demand o FastinB is to minister to the Lord o FastinB is a Spiritual Weapon to come against demonic spirits o FastinB causes Spiritua! breakthroughs
