Are we Hungry Enough? [Ep. 47]

Are we hungry enough to fast and pray?

Give and it Shall be Given…

Fasting helps us know the will of God. Fasting is an important part of following Jesus that we’re not always hungry for.  When we add fasting to our praying, the Lord blesses it in many ways, sometimes even unexpected ways.  In this episode, we share a couple personal testimonies of times when God used fasting and prayer to bring about mini-revivals in our own lives as we have been walking with Him.

Matthew 6:16-18

16 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.

17 But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face,

18 so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.

Fasting is an effective way to truly humble ourselves in the sight of the Lord.

Ezra 8:21

21 Then I proclaimed a fast there at the river of Ahava, that we might humble ourselves before our God, to seek from Him the right way for us and our little ones and all our possessions.

*… Fasting increases our hunger for God and our faith in God… There’s a principle in scripture of how decrease can bring increase… We must decrease in order for Him to increase in our lives… Drawing away from food and drawing nearer to God allows Him to increase in us and feed our souls… When we give more of ourselves to God, He gives more of Himself to us… “Give and it shall be given” Are we hungry enough to fast and pray?
