We’re setting aside 3 days at the beginning of 2020 to seek God and grow in our relationship with Him. Fasting is a powerful spiritual discipline observed all throughout Scripture. If you’re not familiar with fasting, don’t worry– we’ve broken it down for you on the One Church App. In a nutshell, fasting is designed for believers to give something up, creating more dependence on the Lord and space for God to move.
In Scripture, we typically see believers fast eating or different kinds of food for a period of time, but we don’t want to limit you. Maybe you’ll feel led to give up TV/movies, or you realize that social media takes up a lot of your time. The point is voluntarily sacrificing something and pursuing more of God instead. The Bible often mentions people fasting individually (Matthew 6:16-18), however, there are times in Scripture when a corporate fast is called. Acts records: “While they were worshipping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off” (13:2-3).
We’ve experienced the faithful hand of a good God grow His beloved church this past season, and we look forward to the future together as One Church. Just like fasting led Paul and Barnabas to change the course of history, we anticipate a supernatural move of God to unlock potential, broaden horizons and move mightily in your own life as we seek Him together– the best is yet to come!
Isaiah 58:6-12 The power & benefits of fasting (chains loosed, oppression lifted, breakthroughs of healing & freedom, rebuilding, strengthening, God’s divine guidance) Matthew 5 Jesus teaches how it’s a powerful way for Christians to deepen their relationship with God. He gives these 3 tools: “When you give… When you pray… When you fast…” Ezra 8:21-23 Ezra called the nation to fast when the Jews faced a hazardous travel situation as they returned to Jerusalem from their exile in Babylon. Esther 4:15-16 Esther called the people to fast to pray for God’s protection from King Xerxes. 2 Samuel 12:14-16 David fasted to seek God’s healing for his sick child. Acts 10:30 Cornelius’ fast opened the door for Peter to begin telling the Gentiles about Jesus, a vital step in the spread of the gospel throughout the world.
