WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF FASTING

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF FASTING?

Before fasting choose your objectives in fasting. Here are some Biblical objectives:-
First:- To humble yourself before God. David said "I humbled my soul with fasting."

God will not humble us as He has told us to humble ourselves. If you fast with the right motive,
and in faith, you can humble yourself, and when you do this God will lift you up.

2. Another motive is to come closer to God. James 4:8 says:- "Come near to God and He will
come near to you."

3. To understand God's word. When you fast God will give you greater and deeper
understanding of His word.
Fasting
4. To find God's will and to receive direction in your life.

5. To seek healing or deliverance from evil spirits. Jesus said about one kind of evil spirit:- "This
kind can come out only come out by prayer and fasting." (Mk 9:29.) Before Jesus
Himself entered on His ministry of healing and deliverance, He fasted and prayed for forty days.

6. When we need God's intervention in some particular crisis, or when some tremendous
problem has arisen, which we can't handle by ordinary means.

7. To intercede and pray on behalf of others. e.g. An unsaved relative. Are you willing to do
something that will cost you on behalf of your loved one?
