TYPES OF FASTS
There are different types of fasts you can participate in. Be sure to select the one that is best for you.
In this type of fast, you drink only liquids, typically water with light juices as an option.
This type of fast involves removing certain elements from your diet. One example of a selective fast is the Daniel Fast, during which you remove meat, sweets, and bread from your diet and consume water and juice for fluids and fruits and vegetables for food.
This fast involves abstaining from eating any type of food from the morning until evening. This can either correlate to specific times of the day, such as 6:00 am to 3:00 pm, or from sunup to sundown.
This fast is a great option if you do not have much experience fasting food, have health issues that prevent you from fasting food, or if you wish to refocus certain areas of your life that are out of balance. For example, you might choose to stop using social media or watching television for the duration of the fast and then carefully bring that element back into your life in healthy doses at the conclusion of the fast.
SUCCESS WITH FASTING
Here are a few tips to help you succeed with your fast:
CLARIFY THE PURPOSE OF YOUR FAST
Has the church called a fast? Are you seeking clarity for a particular situation? Are you desiring breakthrough in an area of life? Identifying the purpose of your fast will help you to stay on track throughout your fast.
KEEP AN OPEN HEART
We must come into this time with a humble heart, acknowledging that God’s strength is made perfect in our weakness. When we approach God this way, our hearts are open to the word that God will release towards us.
SCHEDULE YOUR DAY FOR SUCCESS
When we fast, the removal of food and other distractions is most beneficial when it is replaced with spending time in God’s presence. Where possible, try to schedule extra time to worship, pray, read your Bible and journal things God is speaking to your heart.
