FASTING GOD'S WAY: The Purpose and Mechanics of Fasting Fasting is a demonstration of an intense yearning for God. During fasting, you forsake the seemingly most important need of life - food - for the sole purpose of seeking God's face. As you sincerely seek God's face, you receive the added benefit of experiencing His hand. If you can ignore food in spite of the body's cravings for it, for the exclusive purpose of seeking God's face, then God undoubtedly becomes your paramount desire! True Biblical fasting is directing your hunger and thirst and passion after God and the things of God. Fasting is a launching pad for divine revelation. It is the highway to divine illumination! Intimacy with the Lord should be the utmost desire of every Christian and fasting affords us a tremendous opportunity to develop an unparalleled intimacy with the Lord. Only genuine spiritual hunger will draw us into the place of true intimacy and encounter with the Lord! When we get the revelation and insight about this spiritual discipline, we will not 'have' to fast - we will actually 'want' to do it! In addition to illuminating Biblical truths on fasting, the mechanics and scientific aspects have been carefully elucidated in this manual to help alleviate any fears one may have about unsafe approaches to fasting.
